Kas

CUKURBAG PENINSULA - The Villa is located on the far side of the Cukurbag Peninsula about 7 minutes drive from the bustling centre of Kas. The Peninsular has not been overbuilt as large areas are designated "Green Land" which cannot be developed. The style and size of villas is well controlled as well, which means that although the Peninsular enjoys an exclusive feel it is still very much a place for a family holiday.

There are stunning views from all around the Peninsular and Villa Xanthos, situated at the most Westerly point, benefits from some spectacular sunsets ... all year round!

There is plenty to do on the Peninsular -

- Visit one of the 2 small beaches 5 minutes from the Villa

- Visit the Dolphinarium also 5 minutes from the Villa

- Cycle around the Peninsular - not as hard as you might imagine and you will experience some wonderful views!

- Visit the Aqua Park - 5 minutes walk from the Villa

- There are many diving platforms, which, by negotiation with villa owners, would be accessible to anyone visiting Villa Xanthos.

FROM KAS ............

LOCAL ACTIVITIES - Swimming - Scuba diving - Snorkelling - Paragliding - Jeep safaris - Canoeing - White water rafting - Gulet cruises

SHOPPING -Turkish carpets - "Designer Labels" - Leather goods - Shoes - Jewellery - Clothes - Iznik ceramics - Spices and Turkish Delights - Antique shops

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS - Kas Friday Market - Visit to the Greek Island of Meis - Kas Amphitheatre (Concerts still take place there)

RESTAURANTS - All very well priced but just too many to mention!

INTERNET - Kas has several Internet Cafes that charge very reasonable rates for Internet access.

OFF SEASON - Most people look to go to Turkey in the Hot Season and yet ............ Kas and the whole Turquoise Coast are extremely beautiful Off Season and at reduced cost. Off Season is ideal times to walk the Lycian Way, visit ancient sites, swim, or simply relax. Some of the features of an Off Season holiday to this area are:

- January ... Parts of the countryside are smothered in wild Anemones of all colours

- January / February ... Sit outside by a brazier fire for an after dinner drink

- January ... A trip to Gombe to see the snow in Mountains 3,000 mts high

- January / February ... Visit ancient Lycian sites - so much easier in temperatures of 20 / 25 Centigrade

- January / February ... Sunbathing!

- March / April ... Risk a swim or go to the mountains in Cukurbag behind Kas (15 minutes) to see the Wild Flowers

- May / June ... Easily warm enough to swim in the pool, most restaurants now open, warming up now

- October ... Very warm days, warm evenings - swimming in the sea still pleasant

- October ... End of Season festivities in Kas - Fireworks, Parties, general Mayhem - well worth the visit!

- November ... Warm days, chilly evenings but great for a quiet break

- December - January ... Light a log fire in the Villa ......... Chill Out!

"A wonderful home"

We stayed in Villa Xanthos for one week in July, and our group consisted of 4 adults and 3 children. Before even arriving, the owner Costa could not have been nicer in sending us information and answering questions. We arrived to a spotlessly clean home, at the tip of the peninsula with incredible west (as in, sunset) facing views. The home is spacious, bright, and airy. The pool is unique in that it has stairs leading in, which is hard to find in Turkey, and really nice when you have kids. There are several lounge chairs and umbrellas and an al-fresco style dining table. The pool was the perfect temperature in July and kept very clean. Every morning bread was delivered by an incredibly friendly and hospitable (like all Turkish people!) man who also cleaned the pool and assisted with general needs/questions. The gardens around the home are beautiful and filled with various flowers. You can catch the bus (dolmas) right at the top of the driveway. It really is a lovely home. But what is best was the service that Costa provided. He really made sure not only before but during our stay that all our needs were met, even though he does not reside locally.
