Nestled into the hillside of the exclusive Kas Peninsular and gently caressed by sea breezes, this 3 bedroom water front villa is in a prime location offering a seductive mix of elegance, luxury and tranquillity with breathtaking views out to sea and mountains.

Guests at Palm Villa enjoy magnificent panoramic views across the Mediterranean. After a day relaxing by the private pool, gazing at the yachts and gullets cruising along the turquoise coastline or swimming in the sea from the villa’s private sea platform, guests may want to sip a cocktail on the balcony and marvel as the sun sets over the sea and distant Greek islands.

The villa is luxuriously appointed with imported European furniture and fineries. With high vaulted ceilings and marble floors throughout, the villa has a spacious, light airy feel with a mix of traditional Turkish chic. There are spectacular views afforded from every window and you can lay on your bed and watch the sunset. The villa is uniquely designed and boasts the largest balcony of any villa on the Peninsular. The villa is set within its own gardens with an exotic mix of palm trees, bougainvillea, jasmine, lilac, honeysuckle, lemon and olive trees and a variety of shrubs that flower at different times of the year.

Travertine terraces trap the sun around the pool, with a large BBQ on hand to cook the fish you hooked from the private sea platform. But if it gets too hot there are shady sanctuaries and even a cool room, with spectacular views where you can take a nap, or have a massage out of the midday sun.

Because of its location guests at the villa can make their stay as relaxing, cultural or as active as they want to. The magical town of Kas with its friendly people and bohemian atmosphere is a 5 minute drive. Cafes, tea gardens, charming boutiques, hideaway bars and restaurants nestle amongst the old fishing harbour and ancient ruins. And if you can drag yourself away from the villa the Lycian coast, with its beautiful beaches, the best scuba diving in the Med and ancient sites await to be discovered.

Further details indoors

Palm villa provides over 300 square meters of living space. Guests at Palm Villa enjoy magnificent panoramic views across the Mediterranean. The villa is luxuriously appointed with imported European furniture and fineries. With high vaulted ceilings and marble floors throughout, the villa has a spacious, light airy feel with a mix of traditional Turkish chic. There are spectacular views afforded from every window and you can lay on your bed and watch the sunset. The villa is uniquely designed and boasts the largest balcony of any villa on the Peninsular.

All bedrooms open up onto a huge balcony that affords panoramic views across the mountains, sea, and distant Greek islands that punctuate the sea's horizon (see guest comments). The bathrooms are luxuriously appointed, one having a large bath and the other being a huge walk-in shower/wet-room.

The kitchen is fully equipped (see above) and hand-made in the finest cedar wood with worktops made of granite. There is ample storage. There is a very large American style breakfast bar with stools and a large dining table, seating six. All diners have a view of the sea and mountains. There is a large selection of games, DVDs CDs, books and magazines.

We have a no smoking policy in the villa. We provide plenty of ashtrays and ask guests to smoke on the terraces or balconies outside.

Further details outdoors

The swimming pool is filtered by the most advanced UV technology, ecologically tested system, available which eliminates/limits the need for harmful chemicals. Sun loungers with mattresses and parasols provided. Alfresco dining areas are set on the balcony overlooking the pool area.

The villa is set within its own gardens with an exotic mix of palm trees, bougainvillea, jasmine, lilac, honeysuckle, lemon and olive trees and a variety of shrubs that flower at different times of the year. Travertine terraces trap the sun around the pool, with a large BBQ on hand to cook the fish you hooked from the private sea platform. But if it gets too hot there are shady sanctuaries and even a cool room, with spectacular views where you can take a nap, or have a massage out of the midday sun.

Palm Villa has its own private bathing area by the beach, with access to the sea. Although there are other platforms dotted about the coastline, even in the summer months you will probably have this entire stretch of coastline to yourself. The sea is warm here, right up to the end of October. The water is very clear and there are abundant and varied fish (bring your scuba gear). Bring your fishing rod, catch your dinner and cook it on the BBQ - how fresh is that! Watching the sunset from here and listening to the waves lapping against the rocks in perfect solitude is worth the price of the airfare in itself.

If you prefer not to drive, frequent Dolmus' (buses) provide cheap and easy access to the main town of Kas. Just wave one down at the top of the road. Alternatively, taxis are readily available and are reasonable.

Further details

Our Management Company is run by (Ramazan) who is a short distance away and can be called upon if there are any problems with the villa. Ramazan is a friendly, English speaking, caretaker who will clean the pool daily, put out and put away sun loungers, water the garden, do light cleaning, take out rubbish and even bring you bread daily if you ask him. Others services can be provided and are detailed in the welcome binder in the villa.

A superior welcome pack, including wine, will be waiting for you at no extra cost.

All Linen and beach towels are provided

Please note rentals from November until the end of April will be considered on a longer let basis.

The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region

‘There are not so many places left where magic reigns without interruption, and of all of those I know, the coast of Lycia was the most magical’, Famed British explorer Freya Stark.

As you travel from Dalaman airport, on your way to the villa, the splendour of the Lycian coast opens up before you. You will understand as you peer through pine treetops and marvel at the sea for the first time, why this is called the Turquoise coast. Without doubt it is one of the most scenic and dramatic coastlines in Europe.

The region boasts sunshine for ten months of the year, illuminating a landscape of towering snow-topped mountains, aromatic pine forests, lush groves of citrus, and age-old olive trees. Sometimes referred to as the "coast-of-light", where the Aegean and Mediterranean meet, it is outstandingly beautiful. Pine covered mountainsides plunge into the expanse of vivid aquamarine and turquoise sea. The coastline is broken by wooded bays and creeks, small hideaway coves, and vast expanses of sandy beaches. This is a true Jason and the Argonauts’ territory.

Loggerhead turtles, protected by law, nest along this coastline, particularly at Patara Beach. Patara Beach, within an easy drive of Palm Villa, has been voted as one of the world’s best beaches and it is easy to see why – a 20 km length of white sandy beach, gently shelving into the sea with a backdrop of sand dunes and ancient ruins lost to the sand and time. There are no buildings or hotels on the beach because of its protection.

The "Turquoise Coast", was home to the ancient Lycians who were one of the most enigmatic people of antiquity. Although little historical record has been left behind them, what has been discovered reveals a fascinating people culturally distinct from the rest of the ancient world. The whole of this area is rich in archaeological history. Ruins from the Lycian, Roman and Ottoman period are evident all around and many are still being restored and uncovered, so take a bucket and spade – you could end up being the next Indiana Jones!

Around twenty major ancient sites remain today with the Lycians' unusual funerary architecture dominating the breathtaking unspoiled land of Lycia. More information about these fascinating ancient sites and history is available at the villa. Also visit www.lycianturkey.com

For those in the group with more energy the region is fast becoming a magnet for trekking. Follow in the footsteps of St Paul through the wilds of Turkey's Taurus and Sultan mountain ranges, with ancient ruins and dramatic peaks and canyons along the way. The ‘waymarked’ Lycian Way has recently been included in the world’s top ten walks. For more information visit www.lycianway.com


‘Ahh……Kas! …….it’s not a place – it’s an emotion’. Robin Hopes, villa owner.

This perhaps sums up a place that is difficult to express in words alone. The peninsular and Kas town has a frustratingly hypnotic spell that ensures visitors return time after time. Stories abound about people passing through Kas that have never left. Robbie Williams, Zinadine Zidane, and other celebrities have wafted in off their yachts to see what all the fuss is about. Writers, painters and poets find their inspiration here, in fact the whole of the Kas peninsular used to be owned by wealthy Turkish journalists from Istanbul who used to sojourn for the summer months.

Kas is a Godsend for the discerning, sophisticated or independent traveller. This is not where you come for pie and chips, stag parties or battery hen sunbathing. Unlike many Turkish resorts it is ‘hassle free’, and has a laid back, cosmopolitan come bohemian atmosphere. Above all, it is the Turkish people that live and work in Kas that make it such a welcoming place to stay.

Kas town itself is hemmed in by the Taurus mountains and the Aegean sea. Cafes, tea gardens, charming boutiques, hideaway bars and restaurants nestle amongst the old fishing harbour and ancient ruins. Windy cobbled streets and Ottaman houses spill over narrow alleyways that are bedecked by bougainvillea of many shades. Restaurants offer a wide variety of Turkish specialities, fantastic fresh fish and other seafood at reasonable prices, steaks, grilled meat, pasta, pizzas and pides. The bars provide a good range of music and there are a couple of lively dance venues. There is something to suit everyone. Antique, jewellery, leather, ceramic, carpet and designer clothes shops beckon the visitor to buy a piece of the lifestyle while jasmine, aromatic spices and the aroma from roasted nut stalls vie for you senses as you take a stroll after dinner.

The town of Kas is built around the remains of ancient Antiphellos, Lycian rock tombs and sarcophagus are to be found in restaurant areas, by the market grounds and standing at the head of one of the main shopping streets. The cliff tombs overlooking the town are attractively lit at night creating amazing views. Sited on the peninsular just a few minutes walk from town is a well preserved amphitheatre dating back to the first century B.C. Cruise ships, and the yachting fraternity travel miles to anchor at Kas harbour just to visit this one ancient site – 4 minutes from Palm Villa!.

However, Kas is much more than just a resort or of historical significance - it is a working town all the year round with a resident population of 8,000 people. It has banks, a hospital a school and some excellent multi-lingual doctors and dentists. There are some excellent supermarkets in the town to stock up for the villa and on Friday tourists and locals alike flock to the large market that comes to town offering a wide array of fresh local produce, spices, hardware, fashionable summer wear, haberdashery, bags and shoes to name but a few. All at bargain prices (though you may have to haggle).

Kas and the surrounding region has a charm and character that draws people back time after time. The friendliest locals imaginable add to the enchantment and atmosphere of this very special place.

Things to do locally

Palm Villa is centrally situated in relation to many interesting antiquities, cultural attractions and areas of natural beauty, which makes it an ideal base camp for day trips and excursions. Kids can enjoy the fun at the nearby Aquapark Hotel with its slides, large pool and other daytime activities. This is literally a 4 minute walk away.

People wanting a day trip are spoilt for choice. There are the archaeological sites at Demre, Myra and Xantos Valley. Daily cruises take visitors to the Greek island of Meis and the sunken city of Kekova. A trip to the gorge at Saklikent and to see the castle and archaeological remains at Tilos accompanied by a trout lunch at nearby Yakapark makes a truly wonderful day out. The Fethiye area to take in Olu Deniz, Calis or the Old Town are other breathtaking excursions. Kas itself is also very popular for diving, there are a couple of local diving schools located in the town itself.

Kas has a mixture of pebbly beaches and beach clubs around the town. The main two beaches are imaginatively named "Big Pebble Beach" and "Little Pebble Beach"! Big Pebble Beach is located in a lovely cove and Little Pebble Beach is flanked by beach clubs with excellent amenities for swimming and a relaxing day by the beautiful clear blue waters. Located about a 20 minutes drive from Kas is the lovely sandy beach at Kaputas and a further 30 minutes drive takes you to one of the biggest and best sandy beaches in the entire Mediterranean at Patara. Other lovely sandy beaches can be reached from Kas Harbour after a 10 - 15 minutes ride by water taxi.

Shared & private boat charter, swimming with dolphins & whales, fishing, walking, kayaking, white water rafting, paragliding & horse riding are just a few of the choices. Alternatively, submerge yourself in the crystal-blue underwater with barracuda, turtles, and grouper, as you experience the best scuba diving in the Med.

All information about trips and information leaflets are kept in the villa. Also visit www.bougainville-turkey.com to make booking prior to leaving and for more detailed information.

"We just can[--]t stay away - AMAZING!!"

My boyfriend and I stayed in the villa for the third time this September, and it was as fantastic as we remember it. Not only is the villa beautiful and spacious, Kas is one of the best kept secrets in Turkey. Its just the right size to offer a good variety of activities and restaurants, but small enough to avoid the package tour crowds. The villa has all the mod cons and a lovely large pool. Imagine not having to get up at 8am just to secure a sun lounger! Highlights are definitely the amazing sunsets and the private sea viewing platform. We'll definitely be going back again.. and again and again...!!!

"A perfect house in a wonderful location that makes you yearn to return."

We were stunned when we arrived at the property. It was beyond our expectations. Ramazan, the caretaker met us soon after our arrival. He attended to all our requests in a friendly an efficient manner. He visited every day but was never intrusive. The accommodation was first class with excellent kitchen facilities and mare than ample entertainment areas. The pool was simply magnificent. The steps down to the sea platform are a bit of a challenge but worth the effort. The beautiful town of Kas is only a 10 minute drive away or 20 minutes on the regular bus service. Where there are many great bars and restaurants plus good shopping. There is also easy access to boating and adventur trips. A visit to the neighboring Greek Island of Kastellorizo (Meis) is a must. Chris & Robin were a delight to deal with during the booking process. Our recommendation is if you are travelling with your own vehicle, it should be one that can deal with the steep access road to the Villa.

"Fantastic Villa"

We have just returned from our second year at this fantastic Villa. You just run out of superlatives to describe the decor, the views - it is just fantastic. Previously we have stayed in two other villas but they were not a patch on Palm Villa. Kas has not changed in all the years we have been coming to Turkey, and a walk around the town is great and so many excellent Restaurants. This year the weather in September was very hot, so the pool was great to cool down and have a relaxing afternoon. In the first week we took a trip to Saklikent and followed the road through to Klos up a mountain road to Yaka Park which is a restaurant and also a trout farm, an excellent place. Ramazan the manager of the Villa is exceptional - nothing is too much trouble. Thank you so much Chris and Robin for letting us stay in Palm Villa.

"Spectacular palm villa our best family holiday we have had."

We had a fantastic holiday we really did. From the moment we arrived at the villa and opened the doors it was wow so stunning the villa and the views we was blown away. The villa is so well equipped we had everthing we needed. The journey was like clock work the transfer and car hire people were brilliant. Romanzan who looks after the pool was so helpful a really nice man he keeps everthing looking beautiful and everyday he brought us fresh bread it was lovely. Robin and chris the owners manage thier villa lettings so well all the information they supply is so helpful and they go above and beyond to help with any questions you may have or any information you might need it made the whole experience fantastic and easy. We can't thank chris and robin enough it was our best family holiday and we would definatly love to come back next year. Thank you All the best Lisa , chris and lily x

"Amazing Holiday"

We have been to this villa twice now and have also booked for this summer (2012) Where do I start? Rob and Chris (the villa owners) make you feel like they are your best friends – right from the first contact through to welcoming you home – everything is done smoothly and the information they give you is great – nothing is too much bother and you just know everything has been taken care of and that there will be nothing to worry about. For an independent traveller who hates package deals, this really is reassuring. As for the villa itself, it is just AMAZING. The views from the villa over the sea and mountains are astounding but the sunsets are unreal. You can literally sit or lie on your bed (in any of the three bedrooms) and watch the sunset, or sit on the vast balcony with a glass of Rose and watch the dying embers of the day sink into the distant horizon. The facilities at the villa are outstanding. The outside has a great pool that is kept absolutely spotlessly clean by Ramazan, the pool and garden man. The pool is really big as most villas only have a small pool, there’s a really well designed gazebo outside and a fantastic BBQ and cool room where you can go if it gets too hot. But the gardens are the best and probably the best on the peninsular. There is such a range of lovely plants and shrubs and as the name of the villa suggests – there are numerous palm trees of different shapes and varieties. The photographs on holiday lettings and on the owners own website (palmvillakas.com) simply don’t do this place justice. The owners arrange all the transfers and car hire for you and Ramazan takes care of you day to day, brings you bread in the morning and puts the loungers out for you and cleans away every evening. I can’t recommend this villa highly enough. The location of the villa is just about as perfect as you could want – it looks straight out to sea and has the Taurus Mountains to the right and is in THE best spot for the new harbour which has recently opened as you can look out and see the posh yachts drift by. Also the fact it is close to Kas town which is probably the best kept secret in Turkey and you have the recipe for a perfect holiday. I think the best part of the villa is that it has its own private beach platform, with its own umbrella and loungers. There is no one to disturb you and you have the whole sea to yourself – you feel like a millionaire. The only downside is that it is probably not suitable for people with disabilities as there are quite a few steps down to the beach platform, but for the average person it is a great spot. My advice is to book early as it is nearly full by Jan/Feb. Can’t think of anything else to add, other than when you compare it to other luxury villas on the peninsular or in Kalkan – it is really cheap.

"Palm Villa and its setting are absolutely breathtaking"

On many occasion as we sat on the balcony watching the sunset behind the mountains, listening to Crosby Stills and Nash, children happily playing in the pool, did we need to wipe a tears from our eyes, a magical moment that words just cannot explain and a memory that we will cherish forever. Chris and Rob (owners of Palm Villa) provided us with all the information that we needed to totally reassure us and therefore make the holiday completely stress free. Ramazan did a fantastic job of bringing fresh bread, cleaning the pool and taking away our rubbish every morning. He is a great guy, warm, friendly, extremely helpful and reliable. Kas town is unspoilt and charming with lots of unique shops, restaurants, and bars Recommendations • Nur Beach hotel restaurant, fantastic food, service and setting • Patara beach and Kaputas beach • The amphitheatre in the ancient city of Patara • The lovely freshly made wraps at Kaputas beach • A visit to the Friday market • Car hire not necessary but advisable as there is so much to see and do Yet again I cannot stress what a fantastic holiday we had, we are desperate to go back next year and hope that we can be squeezed in. The only problem is, a year feels like an awful long time to wait!!! Thanks Rob and Chris for providing us with the opportunity to share this experience. Amanda and family Oxford England

"Best Villa ever"

I have stayed at this villa several times now. It is simply idyllic and the best villa I have stayed in – anywhere. The villa is fantastic value for money considering its location and high quality fittings. The owners have thought of just about everything and from the first contact to returning home they have been so helpful on every little detail including help with transfers, car hire, where to eat, where to visit, best beaches – the list goes on. I would say the best features of this villa are: its location – the sunsets are mesmerising whether you’re sitting on the edge of your bed, having a G+T on the huge balcony or vegging out on the sea platform – sheer bliss; its location – all the bedrooms and nearly all windows look out to sea and mountains, you can waste a whole afternoon just watching the swanky yachts go by in the distance; its location – the wonders of Kas town and so fantastically located for many historical sites and great beaches; the beach platform – wow – absolute solitude next to the sea, great swimming plus we saw a turtle and a pod of dolphins, a real privilege; the pool – it is kept spotlessly clean and is the biggest villa pool I have seen in the area – only Hotel pools appear bigger; the high quality fittings and cleanliness of the place, I could not think of anything we needed, I just wish my home was as well equipped; the gardens and palm trees – it lives up to its name; and lastly it is just simply peaceful and relaxing. One final thing - Ramazan the gardener and pool man. He is just wonderful, so helpful and brings you bread on a daily basis, nothing is too much trouble. The villa has a guest book and there is not one negative comment in there. I have emailed the owners with my comments before and these along with other guest comments can be accessed on the holiday lettings website or their own website: http://www.palmvillakas.com/Guest-comments Happy holidays Linda
