Thanks so much for the lovely review and we are delighted that you love Villa Tahta, Kalkan and Turkey as much as we do. We normally walk to the centre of Kalkan ourselves, it only being a 10 minute walk to the nearest restaurants and shops and a further 5 minutes into the heart of the village. We agree about the Turkish people they are so friendly and generous and really make the holiday special.
