About the owner: We are a family that loves to travel. We have always talked about owning a little place somewhere oversees where we could escape from the world. We found that in Kalkan and Villa Tymnessos is our escape.
Why the Owner Chose Kalkan: We fell in love with the tiny village Kalkan during a visit in Summer 2005 and returned in 2007 to house hunt. Villa Tymnessos was the first villa our agent took us to and it was perfect. We wanted a home that we could someday live in year round, that could accommodate our family reunions, that was a safe and child-friendly place to raise our family, and offered sea views and sunsets that we would never tire of enjoying. We love wandering through the quaint village and reliving the fond memories of past trips and renewing friendships with the local merchants. Once you eat the local food and experience one of the special Kalkan sunsets, you will know why this little village is so special to us.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We have tried to make the villa feel relaxing and comfortable like a real family home should. The villa is located in Kalamar Bay, which is very quiet and away from the tourist focus of Kalkan village, and which we believe adds to the serenity and relaxing atmosphere of the villa. We have decorated the villa with many locally produced crafts and linens, and we try whenever possible, to buy local. What makes the villa so special? It has to be the view. Where ever you are in the villa you have incredible views of the Mediterranean, the neighboring olive groves, the goats wandering the hill to the right of the villa, and the Taurus mountains behind Kalkan. But it will be the sea views that will always grab your attention and which you remember after your return home.
