Eski Koy Evi is situated in the heart of the old quarter of Kalkan, a short stroll to the town beach and the excellent restaurants.
Kalkan is a small, peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing town on the beautiful turquoise coast of Turkey.
Kalkan curls snugly around an ancient harbour sheltered by the foot of the towering Taurus mountains. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour through the historic town and are lined with listed whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local speciality shops and restaurants. Overhead hang original carved Ottoman timber balconies garlanded with brilliantly coloured bougainvillea cascading to the streets below. It is a very special place.
The pebbly town beach is 'blue flag' and there are several excellent beach clubs around the bay. Kaputas Beach is less than ten minutes away by car and the even more spectacular Patara Beach is a fifteen minute drive away.
Kalkan has numerous shops and supermarkets. The Thursday Market offers an opportunity to sample the fabulous local produce.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Kalkan / Kalkan Old Town area
Kalkan (Greek: Kalamaki) is on the Turkish Mediterranean coast, and averages over 300 days of sunshine a year. The area includes many historical sites and many fine beaches. The word Kalkan is Turkish for 'shield'. Kalkan is an old fishing town, and the only safe harbour between Kas and Fethiye; famous for its white-washed houses, descending to the sea, and its brightly coloured bougainvilleas. Until the early 1920s the majority of its inhabitants were Greeks. They were forced to leave the town in 1923 because of the Exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey after the Greco-Turkish War. They emigrated mainly to Attica, where they founded the new town of Kalamaki.
Kalkan was once a very important location as it was the only safe harbour between Kas and Fethiye. Cargo ships were loaded in the harbour to sail for destinations in the Ottoman Empire carrying various goods such as charcoal, silk from the Mulberry trees, olive oil which is still produced today, wine, cotton, grain, sesame seed, flour, grapes, acorns used for dye purposes, and lumber from the cedar and pine forests. By the 20th century Kalkan had its own customs house, as well as restaurants, a goldsmith, a shoemaker and a couple of tailors. In 1928 Kalkan had its first local elections and in 1937 the elementary school, which is still used today, was established. Sailors stayed here in different pensions and enjoyed cold drinks in the numerous pubs. Although part of the Antalya province administratively, Kalkan is connected more closely to Fethiye economically and for transportation.
Kalkan is situated in the heart of the ancient Lycian region, close to many famous historical sites including Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Patara and Tios.
Patara beach (the longest beach in Turkey) offering 18km of soft sand and shallow waters and is only 15 minutes away by car, taxi, or for the more adventurous, local bus (dolmus).
In the height of summer a trip up into the Taurus mountains offers a cool retreat either to Berzigan to see carpets being woven in the traditional manner or to enjoy lunch in Islamar at one of the many trout farms.
Kalkan is perfectly positioned for walking the ancient Lycian Way. Listed by The Sunday Times as one of the top ten walks, it is a long distance way-marked footpath around the coast, from Ölü Deniz, near Fethiye to Hisarcandir, about 20 kilometers from Antalya, affording spectacular views over the coast from above Kas and Kalkan. Though February-May or September-November are the best months for longer walks, short shady sections can be enjoyed in the hot summer months.
If you wish to explore further afield, there are plenty of excursions from Kalkan available including:
•The Sunken City at Kekova
•Moonlight Boat Trips
•Trips to Xanthos/Letoon/Patara

"Beautiful house, superb location - owners have thought of everything"
House is newly refurbished and very central for the town. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, comfortable beds and super wetrooms. All mod cons provided in the open plan kitchen and laundry room. We had breakfast at home every day, but as there are dozens are super restaurants all within walking distance, we ate out every evening. The house does have a BBQ, but we did not make use of it. There is a beach club you can walk to, with sunbeds, brollies and access to deep water. Very good lunch also available there. Local beach is run by the council and wasn't fully operative when we were there. There is an excellent beach about 15 mins drive away, again with bed,brollies and super sea/beach - loved it there. Local people are very friendly, without being too pushy and in-your-face. Lots of good shopping with excellent 'fakes' - jewellery, watches, sunglasses, leather goods and some unusual clothes boutiques. Weekly market worth a visit. Lots of local cats and dogs, but well looked after, even if they are strays, so not too much of a problem.
Overall an excellent holiday and to be recommended.
