Location description from owner

The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region

The Turquoise Coast & Lycian region

Renown for its fabulous coastline and historic sites the villa is in a prime location for enjoying the beaches and exploring the towns, history and culture of this beautiful part of Turkey.

The nearest town is Kalkan which has a beach and harbour with a good range of shops, restaurants and bars. There is a weekly market on Thursday. Kalkan is surrounded by mountains and a visit to the local mountain village of Bezirgan will give you spectacular views over Kalkan Bay. The village gives a great insight into a traditional way of life that is fast dying out. Kas is 27 km or 30 mins drive away and is a pretty town of a similar size to Kalkan. It has a bustling harbour and an amphitheater. Fethiye is the largest local town and is 1 hour by car. It is famous for its large market and for its fish market. It is a bustling harbour town and has a good selection of shops. Close by is Olu Deniz.

Patara beach with miles of golden sand is only 15 mins drive, it has been voted one of the best beaches in the world. It is a conservation area so there is a small charge to access the beach. The ticket is valid for 1 week so you can go every day. The road to the beach is of archaeological significance and you will see ancient ruins before diving into its crystal clear waters.

Kaputas is one of the most photographed beaches in Turkey. It is a small cove between steep cliffs- it is a long walk down. The beach is very safe for swimming and only 10 minutes drive from the villa.

Along the coast past Patara and Kaputas are lots of small beaches. If you have hired a car they are easily accessed from the road most have no services so you will need to bring food and drinks.

Saklikent Gorge
Situated 40 minutes drive from Kalkan is the spectacular gorge of Saklikent. The gorge is 18 kilometres long and is so steep and narrow the sun does not penetrate. There is a small charge to enter the gorge. The entrance is a wooden walkway leading to an area of cafes over the water. The more adventurous visitor can cross the water and walk up the gorge. Outside the gorge are numerous restaurants set along the river as it speeds its way to the sea.

This ancient site is just 15 minutes from Kalkan. This was the capital of Lycia and is now a ruined town. The site is extensive and includes a roman amphitheater, agora and acropolis.

Tlos was one of the oldest and most important cities in ancient Lycia. It is 40 minutes drive from Kalkan towards Fethiye. The ruins feature rock tombs, amphitheater, fort and sarcophagus.


Kalamar & Kalkan

Kalamar Bay Beach Club is a 5 to 10 minute walk downhill from the villa and offers sun loungers, parasols and a full range of water activities. For the more adventurous there is a local diving school if you want to learn to dive. Nearby there is a selection of markets, bars and restaurants as well as a hamman and sauna. There are a number of hotels in Kalamar that offer spa packages and beauty therapies.

There is a regular dolmus service into Kalkan town, it is a comfortable 15 mins walk or 5 mins drive.

Kalkan offers a full range of amenities and is a bustling town when the sun goes down. This beautifully conserved village is famous for its cobbled streets and picturesque harbour. There are daily boat trips from the harbour to beach clubs and around the bay. At night the boats return and the restaurants and bars come to life. The choice of restaurants is vast and the quality of food amazing. Luckily there are lots of shops to cater for that increased dress size- it is a challenge not to come back with a few extra pounds.

Shopping in Kalkan is a delight with ceramics, jewellery and clothes good buys not to mention the wonderful handbags. Kalkan has a good choice of banks and a post office. There is a good selection of supermarkets, butchers, bakers and vegetable shops.

There is a large bus station in Kalkan offering good transport links to local beaches, towns and places of interest.

Organised tours are offered by local tour companies and this is a good way of combining a number of sights in one tour or to travel further a field.

“Great villa and great people”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2016

We stayed a fortnight with 4 young kids (aged from 20 months to 9 years) and the villa has plenty of room for all with some spare. Initially, we had few teething problems with the electricity and wi-fi but speedy responsiveness of the care taker and owner more than made up for any minor issues. No request was too much and the eagerness to ensure a pleasant stay for us made the villa a very enjoyable place to stay. Initially, apprehensive about the depth of the pool but it turned out to be a gift. The kids can jump into the pool from any side. The only recommendation I have is that although it says it fits under the criteria of "suitable for under 5 year olds", there is of course a huge difference between a 4 year old and a toddler. The villa is arranged over 4 floors with marble staircases/floor throughout. Any water spillage makes the floor very slippery. IMO, parents need to make their own judgement as to suitability for kids under 3 years. To be fair, this would be true for most villas in Kalkan as they are likely to be built over very steep hill. Overall, I would highly recommend the villa to others.

Dear Al & Family, Delighted you enjoyed your stay in our villa. It is very spaceous and perhaps this does not come across in the photos. Sorry about the electrics blowing just as you arrived but it was quickly and easily fixed. Our caretaker, Mehmet, is excellent and is only ever a short call away. Most villas do have travertine and tiled floors which look lovely but you do need to dry any spillages. KIds love the pool, we always advice using floatation aids with small children and supervising them. Hope to see you again. Kind regards Huseyin & Caroline

“Fabulous and relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2015

I had a lovely holiday staying at the villa. It is a home from home with everything you could possibly need. The villa is beautifully maintained and clean to high standard. The layout is perfect for a large group and is spacious enough for different families sharing. Being pool side is so relaxing with many sunbeds in a beautifully maintained garden with beautiful flowers.The pool is cleaned everyday. The views across Kalamar Bay are amazing from many places within the villa but particularly the top terrace which is more beautiful of an evening. Customer service from the owner was amazing as arranged all transfers and ensured we had all information we wanted for trips and restaurants. There are many good restaurants in Kalkan,I would recommend Chillies , the Olive garden and Cafe Vita. Saklikent Gorge, Kekova, Kas, a boat trip, and visiting a fish farm are a must. I would recommend this villa to relatives and friends and will be returning

So pleased you enjoyed your holiday. It is great when guests appreciate the facilities the villa offers. We do invest in updating the villa. New air conditioning has been installed throughout this month ready for 2016. Hope to see you next year.

“Brilliant return visit- the views get better and better”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2015

This is our third visit to lovely Villa Tara and we will be back next year. The villa has lots of space to cater for our family and friends. Spread over 4 floors means noise does not travel even with 8 of us staying. The teenagers love the pool and the short walk to Kalamar Beach Club for water sports. They also use the local hotel for tennis. My wife loves the peace of the villa which is ideal for relaxing. The TV is huge- perfect for a night in to watch a good DVD- there is a good choice of DVDs and books in the villa. At night we love chilling out on the roof terrace with a drink. The view is panoramic- must be the best in Kalkan. It is only a short walk to the local restaurants- good value and good food. Kalkan is just a bit further- get a taxi back its only £4. Yet again a fantastic holiday and cant wait for next year.

Thank you for returning again this year and glad you had a wonderful holiday. Hope to see you next year.

“BEST visit to Turkey”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

Wonderful Villa This was our 3rd time at Villa Tara, we love it. The villa is ideal for our family with lots of space both inside and out. The pool is a suntrap with lots of sun loungers for chilling out, they even supply beach towels. The views are superb. We spent many evenings on the roof terrace and dining terrace just taking in the scenery. The villa is really close to the local beach and there are good restaurants only 5 minutes away. We hired a car this time and got out to see the local area. Patara beach and pink beach club were our favourites. It is only a 15 minute walk into Kalkan and we enjoyed a few nights in the harbour. There are lots of good places to eat here. We also managed a boat trip- really fun for the kids. The villa is well equipped- everything you need. There is a good supply of books and DVDs if you want a night in. Huseyin was incredibly helpful- he provided us with information before we went and can organise transfers. If you want a peaceful location but still be close to restaurants, beaches and shops this is the perfect villa. We had wonderful holiday and will definitely be back.

“Absolutely Perfect”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2014

We stayed in this fantastic villa for a week of relaxation, and it fulfilled our every need. The villa is beautiful, and words cannot do justice for the stunning views from every balcony. The villa provided everything that we needed and the location was ideal for the privacy that it afforded, whilst being within close proximity to the town. The villa was extremely clean and very well looked after, with all the utilities necessary to make our stay perfectly comfortable. The town was marvellous, and we were able to sample divine turkish cuisine which was at very affordable prices, only a short walk away. The local people were friendly and welcoming with hilarious sense of humours, and the local dogs were just as friendly, and loved our attention (without begging for food!). I have already recommended this villa and the town of Kalkan to my family, and we hope to come again for a larger family holiday at some point in the future. We had a perfect week thanks to the villa and the fantastic owners.

“A lovely relaxing holiday, with fantastic views!”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2014

Villa Tara is a great location for a relaxing holiday, we had a week of non stop sunshine. The villa is spacious and clean with all the amenities needed for a family holiday. The villa is in a great spot which is quiet but within walking distance of Kalkan, the restaurants are really good and we did not have one bad meal, Olive Garden and Chilli's were two favourites!. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool but also went to Kalamar Beach Club and enjoyed swimming in the sea. It is easy enough to book trips and explore the local area, we enjoyed a day trip to Kas. which is close by. The roof terrace is lovely, we sat up there in the evening having a drink and star is lovely and cool in the evening. The villa has two lounges and plenty of space for people to spread out, .the main bedroom has lovely views from the balcony. A lovely relaxing week in great location.

Was my 1st time in Turkey. I couldn't have picked a better location or villa for my stay. Travelled with my sister and her family as they had been to Villa Tara the year before and had loved it. The views were amazing and the villa itself was lovely, spacious and well situated.
