The historic town of Kalkan is an enchanting place and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Coast. With the complete absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoiled haven of lush nature, brilliant blue crystal-clear sea, historic architecture, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality. Once a simple fishing village, today’s Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a few good quality low-rise hotels and apartments and a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights together with stylish and atmospheric Blues and Jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, clothing and accessories. The narrow streets twist down to the harbour, which is the focus of the village and here you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the world go by or looking at the array of elegant gulets, some of which are available for private hire.
Local market day for the area is held on a Thursday. Try your hand at bartering or go along and have a laugh at the local banter. Some good quality bargains are available, and never accept the opening price.
Villa Derin is located in Kisla, offering peace and privacy in a romantic setting with breathtaking scenery. A short boat ride or a five minute drive (free shuttle) or taxi ride (a few pounds) will take you to Kalkan, a picturesque harbour town with narrow, cobbled streets. Kalkan has its own small pebble beach and in Kisla region there are 3 beaches (Kisla, Mahal, and Club Patara). Also Kaputas is a lovely sandy beach which is 5 minutes drive away and Patara beach which is the second longest in the world neighbouring Lycian ruins, is 15 minutes drive away. Kalkan is set in an area full of history with many ancient sites nearby (Letoon, Xanthos, Kekova Sunken city, etc.). A trip up to the mountains behind Kalkan will take your breath away. Villa is 30 min from Saklikent Gorge and 20 min. from Kas Town. For more information you can visit the links below.
Scuba diving is available from Kalkan harbour

We had a really magical week in Kisla/Kalkan while staying at the villa Derin. The villa itself was stunning, just like the pictures. It is set out over three levels and a cot and stair rails were ready for us to us for the little baby. On the ground floor poolside you have a master bedroom with small jacuzzi tub as well as a 2nd bedroom with twin beds and own bathroom. On the first morning, I couldn't believe the view from my bed! Simply stunning! On the second floor there's the lounge room and kitchen and large outdoor balcony with fantastic views and lovely furniture. On the third floor there's another double room (ensuite with tub) and yet another bedroom 2 singles and bathroom!
The thing that I loved about the villa was that the view of Kalkan and the harbour was so inspiring. You could sit in the morning enjoying your coffee watching all the little boats go out; but then you felt such a desire to head out and just enjoy this fantastic part of Turkey. All the people we met in Kisla and Kalkan were so amazing and friendly. The town of Kalkan was incredible and the food was absolutely superb! There's so much to do! We thought we'd have a lazy week by the pool, but ended up instead busy going to the beach, taking day trips, going out one of the boats (recommended by the owner), playing water sports.
The villa is located in Kisla. You have a couple of little restaurants in this area, and a convenience store and restaurant right next to the villa. The restaurant delivered the food right to the large outdoor poolside table at the villa. Once we had rented a car, we enjoyed it more. We used the car service recommended from the owner, the prices and service were fine. We also enjoyed catching the water taxi from the beach park at the bottom of the hill from this villa.
I would recommend this villa, because I think the communication with the owner was all clear, the villa was just exactly as it looks in the pictures, and the initial support was ok. Our only complaint was that the man (Isa) who was meant to pop round every day turned up the first two days and the second last day. It would've been nicer if he had have come as he said he would. The convenience store very nearby (called Bob's) is staffed by an incredibly friendly, lovely and very helpful older couple.(parents of Bob), and they were able to help us if we needed anything.
HOT TIP: rent a car after you arrive!

"Fantastic trip at Villa Derin"
We stayed at Villa Derin in June 2011. We had one of the best vacations ever. The pictures do not do justice how beautiful this villa is. When we arrived, the villa was spotless, and a nice welcome package was awaiting us. The housekeeper Isa is a wonderful, courteous, and a handy man. The villa is very spacious, four large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a half bath at the living room level. This villa has spectacular views, especially the view of the sea from the living room level is absolutely stunning. I could have spent my whole day on the balcony just watching the view while sipping my Turkish tea. Derin is at a short distance walking to the sea and the beach club and the water is very clear, we even saw some colorful fishes during snorkeling. There is a big TV set in the living room and a DVD player and a nice selection of movies. The kitchen and dining area is quite large and more than adequate. The only thing I can add is that a microwave could have been handy to reheat our food. The swimming pool is beautiful, well-maintained, and cleaned every morning.
There is a ton of places to see in the Kalkan and surrounding areas. Make sure to spend some time on Patara beach.
Last but not least, I must mention the owner of Derin. I have had several pleasant email correspondences with him. I actually enjoyed communicating with him. He got back to me promptly and patiently answered my endless questions. Thank you very much.
All in all, we had a FANTASTIC vacation at Derin. We definitely recommend this villa to everyone and hope to be back one day.
