The apartment Carpici is a spacious 3 bedroomed 3 bathroomed duplex apartment incorporating a king size master bed & bedroom suite. It will accommodate 6 adults comfortably, or give families that extra space that is often lacking in holiday apartment accommodation.
The first floor living area opens out onto one of the most spectacular vistas in the Mediterranean day or night, a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Situated in a small select development above Kas, you are 10 minutes walk down to the harbour, the central square, the many excellent restaurants and bars, or Little Pebble Beach. The apartment is up above the noise and commotion of the town yet close enough to watch and hear the fishing boats entering and leaving the harbour.
The generous infinity pool has spectacular views, and is usually quite, even in peak season.
Our aim has been to provide a level of comfort and facilities we expect at home, with entertainment options for both children and adults.
Quite air conditioning units and quality beds will hopefully enable a good nights sleep.
Its the perfect place to chill out and relax by the poolside, watching the para gliders descend from the mountains behind Kas to the quay side below, or enjoy a cold glass of wine as you watch the magnificent sun sets across the peninsula and beyond from your balcony before venturing out to one of Kas's many excellent restaurants.

The coastline surrounding Kas remains un spoilt by tourism, due in part to its distance from the airports and the mountainous terrain that rises straight out of the sea.
History is everywhere as you travel along the coast from the ruins at Xanthos, Letoon, and Patara, to Lycian tombs and the Roman Amphitheatre at Kas, the sunken city of Kekova and to Myra the home of Baba Noel or as we know him Father Christmas ( St Nicholas) who was once bishop of Myra.
A lack of sandy beaches and adjacent flat land has also helped preserve Kas from mass tourism. The town is very Turkish,and retains a friendly village atmosphere, where the locals sit out around the square and local children play by the harbour in the cool of the evening. English is widely spoken and understood nearly everywhere.
In early April, Late October and November you can experience some changeable weather, however you can also have long periods of warm 21-26 C weather when its more like a really nice English summer and probably the best time of the year for serious sight seeing or walking the Lycian Way (Turkeys long distance coastal path).
The summer is long and can get quite warm in July and August, but situated up on the hillside above the town you can enjoy the full benefits of the gentle sea breeze as you sit on your balcony or relax by the poolside.
Kas is a small friendly cosmopolitan holiday town that has grown up over the last 40 years from a quaint fishing village only accessible from the sea ,to a sophisticated seaside town which has retained its Turkish identity .
Located under the lower peaks of Mount Akdag (9,802ft), Kas is the jewel of the Turkish Riviera, a relaxed place, with lots of charm and character.
It provides an excellent base from which to discover the magnificent scenery and unique archaeological sites of the Lycian coast whether it’s the local Lycian tombs around Kas, the newly restored Roman Amphitheater on the edge of town, or the Sunken city at Kekova, where you can look down on the ruins of a once great city beneath the sea. There is something for everyone.
Kas is however still a working town, with all the shops, boutiques, bustling markets and restaurants that cater for tourists and locals alike.
The beaches in and around Kas tend to be pebbly rather than sandy and this combined with its historic lack of accessibility and the availability of flat land accessible to the sea, has meant that the mass tourism market has not taken hold, there are only a couple of medium sized hotels in Kas
A plush new marina and club has just opened on the edge of Kas, catering for everything from small day boats to Super Yachts..
Villas and apartments make up most of the available accommodation in the area and most apartments do not have access to a pool. The apartment Carpici not only has direct access to an infinity pool, it enjoys one of the Prime Locations in Kas.
Activities around Kas include:
Tandem Paragliding, a 40 minute trip down the mountain will cost you €90.
Boat Trips to Kekova Sunken City ( all day)
Sea Kayaking at Kekova.
Canyoning at Salkient Gorge.
Or for those of a different disposition a water taxi to Linimagzi Beach, a long lunch at the water side restaurant, sleeping it off in a shady hammock on the beach, while you get your strength back for the water taxi ride across the bay back to Kas.
