Location description from owner
The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
The region is amazing and the small and beautiful fishing port of Kalkan, situated on the beautiful turquoise coast of Turkey, is un- spoilt by mass tourism and offers a more sophisticated experience than the usual resort town. Seeped in history Kalkan is one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's fabulous Lycian Coast.Kalkan region offers a holiday destination suitable for the most discerning of tastes, with its narrow winding streets lined with beautiful old villas amongst local specialty shops and fabulous restaurants in historic buildings, there is plenty to discover and enjoy. Masses of brilliant bougainvillea flowers hang from the original Ottoman balconies adding to the stunning beauty and truly unique atmosphere of Kalkan.The city of Kalkan has embraced its Ottoman Greek architecture and strict building codes ensure that the town remains small and any developments blend in with the historic architecture. Despite its small size Kalkan has plenty to offer with numerous restaurants offering fabulous local cuisine and an abundance of fresh sea fayre and European dishes. Kalkan is the ideal base from which to explore the fantastic coast, with private tour operators offering a multitude of daily excursions by sea and road. Alternatively if you prefer a more tailored experience you may wish to hire a private boat for the day. Whether a thrill seeker or looking to explore the regions rich history Kalkan has much to offer you by day and night, although the nightlife is a more laidback style than you would find in many of Turkey's busier resorts.But don't just take our word for it here are what some of the press have to say about Kalkan;Sunday Times "Kalkan attracts the kind of visitor who would also enjoy Tuscany or the Dordogne"The Guardian likens the town to "the Italian Riviera minus the poseurs"
Kalkan area has several very popular beach clubs including: Palm, Kalamar, Lykia, Patara, Yacht Club and Caretta, some of which are reached by free boat shuttle from the harbour while others can easily be reached by a 3/4 minute car ride from Villa Luz Angela in La Vanta. You are expected to hire sun-loungers and parasols and you will probably want to buy food and drink.The Kalamar Beach Club offers all the usual fun aqua sports from ringo & banana rides to PADI diving courses while Caretta is rustic and charming with great traditional Turkish food cooked by “Mamma”. Both are Villa Lavanta favourites.La Vanta Club House - It boast some of the best views in Kalkan and is one of the big draws for why our guests want to stay at La Vanta. It's peaceful and you'll never get bored of the views!Kalkan Beach area – A very pleasant pebbly public beach with crystal-clear water is located just by Kalkan's harbour; it has earned a Blue Flag award for cleanliness. Sun beds with umbrellas are available for rent and many cafés and restaurants are nearby.Patara Beach area – It´s no wonder Patara has been voted one of the top beaches in the world by The Sunday Times. Stunning natural beauty and 12km of golden sand make it a firm favourite with tourists. You can also visit the ancient archaeological sites situated within the lush pastures of the national park. Patara is a key biodiversity area, rich in birdlife and the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle. The beach is closed after sunset from May to October to give the turtles some peace in which to lay their eggs.Patara is 20 minutes drive from Kalkan with ample car parking plus the route is well serviced by buses from Kalkan bus terminal.Kaputas Beach – Hundreds of years ago a huge chasm opened up the side of the mountain face and spilled its contents out to sea. The gorge has dried up, but what's left is Kaputas Beach, a small, sandy shore. After descending many steps down from the road it feels like the middle of nowhere. From here, it's just a short swim to some nearby phosphorescent caves. Kaputas is 10 minutes drive from Kalkan on the road to Kas. There is car parking available plus the route is well served with buses from Kalkan bus terminal.Gulet Cruises – One of the most relaxing ways of getting to know Kalkan and surrounding area is to take a boat trip. Small and medium size boats leave Kalkan harbour at about 10am each morning and return in the afternoon. The cost is around £15 per person. Private charters can also be arranged It is best to book all trips in advance to ensure that the boat of your choice is waiting for you the following day. Most boatmen will include a light lunch on board with drinks available from the bar. Given notice you may be able enjoy a barbecue cooked on a beach by the crew. We recommend Chillout and Moby Dick boats!Tandem Paragliding – One for the thrill seekers here. Take off from the summit of Mount Asaz in the neighbouring town of Kas reputed as being the best flying site in Europe due to the excellent atmospheric conditions. As a passenger you will have a short briefing before taking to the skies with an experienced pilot. No previous experience necessary. Flying suits are provided.River Canoeing – You can enjoy a fun day river canoeing on the nearby Xanthos River. Experienced river guides take you on a journey across ancient Lycian lands of tranquil, lush nature. The journey is downstream, so it isn't hard going! The journey ends at Patara Beach, with a swim. A fun family day including a BBQ picnic lunch along the way. River Tubing – Have easy and great fun river tubing through beautiful nature on the Saklikent River with your tube and paddle. The water is actually quite shallow and very refreshing in the summer heat. Rides last from 45 minutes to two hours, depending on which you choose.Hiking Tours – The lush green countryside, fertile plains and rolling hills that surround Kalkan are perfect for long walks. There are a series of well-known trails to explore and the area also boasts a diverse array of wildlife. You can enjoy a cooler climate whist learning about the rich and varied wildlife of the highlands with their clear ice-cold springs, lakes, soaring peaks, alpine pastures and mountain valleys. Lunch is usually provided. You can also meet the local people as you visit mountain settlements and semi-nomadic villages along the way.Horse Riding – Enjoy a great horse riding experience while on holiday in Kalkan. The ride starts in Patara village and travels along the Xanthos River to the ancient ruins of Patara and concludes along the white sands of Patara Beach where you will have time to relax and swim. Morning and afternoon rides are availableSaklikent Gorge & Tlos –25km northwest of Kalkan, high up in the mountains, the Esen River has cut a deep and narrow path creating a mystic and fascinating hidden valley – Saklikent Gorge. Once inside, water–sculpted limestone canyon walls soar high above, while the twist and turns of the gorge bed travel some 18km in length. After lunch at Yakapark situated at the base of the White Mountains the journey continues to the ancient ruins of Tlos with its remarkable rock–cut tombs. This Lycian city is the legendary home of Pegasus. A fun and interesting day out for all the family.Myra and Kekova (Sunken City) Tour – Enjoy a combined day of both wonderful sailing and ancient history. Visit Myra's fascinating rock tombs and amphitheatre. Sail to the ancient city of Simena with its picture postcard harbour and waterfront restaurants. The climb up to the castle is steep but well worth the effort to capture the truly amazing view before you. Explore the ruins of the Roman Sunken City which became submerged after a massive earthquake. The remains are visible from both above and below the waterline. There will be plenty of opportunities to swim and dive. Lunch is included. Another fabulous day out for all the family.Xanthos – The ancient Lycian capital of Xanthos was discovered in 1838 by the archaeologist Charles Fellows.It stands upon an elevated area within the Xanthos valley with the Xanthos River flowing closely under the city's west side and ensures a fabulous view point.Artefacts from Xanthos date back to the 8th century BC, but it is possible that the site may have existed during the Bronze Age or during the first centuries of the Iron Age.Although Fellows removed most of the treasures of Xanthos to The British Museum, there are still many interesting monuments and structures that remain, including two of the most interesting tombs in Lycia.The imposing ruins combine Lycian, Persian and Greek styles. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site.Letoðn the Lycian centre for the worship of Leto, was an important sanctuary in ancient times. First excavated in 1962, the remains of three 3rd century BC temples, dedicated to Leto, Aretmis and Apollo, bear testimony to its significance.Mythology has it that Leto was a nymph who was loved by Zeus, and was jealously hounded by his wife Hera as a consequence. Wolves guided the pregnant Leto to the River Xanthos, where she bathed and renamed the place Lycia (from the Greek for wolf, lykos) before giving birth to Aretmis and Apollo.Pinara – The city sits perched high on a mountain reached by a twisting road and gives one an unparalled eastern view far across the Xanthos valley. It is towered over by a 450 metre high flat-topped mountain cone honeycombed with hundreds of rectangular burial tombs on its vertical east face.There is no other Lycian site quite like Pinara with its untouched, gorgeous mountain setting of fragrant pines, ancient olive trees, wildflowers, thyme-scented breezes and its stunning view over the Xanthos valley.

“Super relaxing and tranquille, amazing view!”
From the pictures I thought Luz Angela looked amazing but it's actually better in real life- I spent many an hour sat in the garden reading on the sun lounger and chatting as well as getting my swimming in at the pool! La Vanta is such stunning place, the view, the people and the food down in Kalkan town is some of the best I've tasted when I've been away. The boat trip is soo good, super clear waters and again amazing food with a complete day of taking in the views and chilling! Go to all the places in the holiday booklet, esp Trio, Mussakka and Kalamaki (Foto Pizza is also good). Visiting the beaches is a must, can't believe how peaceful it was listening to the waves.. Ahh, and a hammam, it made me giggle and you'll have to get one to find out why! (Funny Turkish women gives a slight indication!)
“Great villa in lovely area.”
We had a fantastic week here. The villa is perfect - modern, clean and well maintained. The pool is just up the road, and we had some great lunches in the clubhouse there. Kalkan is lovely with a great choice of restaurants serving excellent food.
“Most beautiful apartment, first class facilties, set in a delightful complex.”
The owner of this apartment was really accomodating as we arrived early morning and left late at night. The apartment was superb, clean and the manager on site Muhammet lovely, we loved it here, please give it a try! I only put slightly down for location as it is about 5 mins from Kalkan with a car no problem but for the teenage girls it was a taxi back in evening. However, everything else was perfect and we enjoyed coming back to peace and quiet of La Vanta - it was heaven!
just returned from our second visit to villa luz angela and it was just as good as the first. the villa is set in la vanta which is a well cared and has the best infinity pool on the coast. villa luz angela offers good,clean and spacious accommodation and is well equipped. enjoyed barbecues in the club house and on the villa patio and wonderful restaurants in centre of kalkhan,and the shopping too !! will be back next year. amy and josh
“Great location and very relaxing”
Villa Luz Angela is ideal for a couple or family holiday. Spacious accomodation and access to a hugely impressive infinity pool, with views across Kalkan bay allow for a relaxing break. Most of our holiday was outside of the school holidays and as such, we had a peaceful time and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent array of restaurants on offer in Kalkan town. If beaches are your thing, then Patara (10 mins drive) is fantastic. Unspoilt and a huge stretch of pristine beach. Also some great ancient ruins to nose around as well (just by the beach). All in all, a hot, relaxing and great dining holiday...!
We arrived at the villa late at night due to our flight times! We'd seen photos of what the views was meant to be like and i'll never forget opening the curtains in the morning! Wow what a view of the stunning Kalkan bay. As La Vanta is higher than any other villas in Kalkan is boats the best views in Kalkan. The villa in new, modern, clean and the layout works nicely with plenty of space. It's a stones throw from the clubhouse and infinity pool which we spent a LOT of time at! Can't wait to go again.
“fantastic property and resort”
Lovely apartment with a sea view on a fantastic resort with the best pool with a 180 degree view of the bay. We loved Kalkan as a holiday destination because it was child friendly with great food.
“Defiantly coming back to Kalkan”
Villa Luz Angela in La Vanta has been fully refurbished to a really good standard and was everything we needed. It has a stunning view over Kalamar Bay we spend many evening eating on the patio area enjoying the views. It’s a short taxi ride to the lovely town of Kalkan but everytime we visited Kalkan we just wanted to return to the La Vanta pool and club house before retiring back to the Villa Luz Angela. I hope we can visit again in years to come! Thanks Charlie and Sophie
