Overlooking Kalamar Bay, the views from Villa Manzara are spectacular. It is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with 2 lounges. Additionally, there are 3 dining terraces, giving you the freedom to choose how and where you would like your group to dine. The villa is of exceptional quality with travertine marble terraces, private pool with large sunbathing area, contemporary furnishings and brand new high quality appliances. The views are stunning from every floor, window and balcony of the villa and with less than a 5 min walk from the front door to the sea, you will struggle to decide whether to dive in, or hop on a jet ski. If you are keen on nature and fancy rambling, the villa is by the Lycian Way, which provides miles of picturesque walking trails, where you can take in the ancient sites and flora and fauna of the region. Our villa is looked after by an English/Turkish company, who not only keep our home in tip top condition, but are on hand to help you with anything you need for your holiday e.g. car hire, advice and booking of trips, restaurant reservations, medical contacts etc.
Outside at Villa Manzara: There are so many different areas outside at Villa Manzara. Everyone can have a space to call their own. The terraced garden areas are filled with fruit trees, beautiful Mediterranean plants and bougainvillea. The spacious private pool terrace has 6 sun-loungers, parasols, 7 large outdoor bean bags and side tables for your G&T. The three dining terraces give you different dining options to suit your group. The BBQ terrace, with local stone built BBQ has a low Turkish style seating area. The roof terrace has Turkish style seating across two of the corners, making for a great after dinner social area while watching the sunset, or even shooting stars! If that is not enough, you can always retire to your own balcony and watch the gulets out at sea. Additionally, we have provided a Turkish mobile phone which has taxi's, restaurants, and things to do stored on it, making your holiday even easier!
Villa Manzara Location: The sea is less than 5 mins walk from Villa Manzara. You can choose to get up, put on your flip-flops, take a towel, walk down and take a dip first thing in the morning when the sea is like a millpond. There are also 2 beach clubs, the Kalamar Beach Club with its scuba diving and many other water sports or the relaxing adult only Kulube Hotel Beach Club. Kalkan Town is 5 mins by car. There is also a local dolmus bus running from Kalamar Bay into town if you do not have a car and don't want to walk. Locally, apart from the beach clubs and Turkish bath at the Kulube Hotel, there are some restaurants, a small supermarket and numerous other restaurants on the walk into Kalkan. As well as the more local beaches, the 18km Patara Beach (voted best beach in the world by The Sunday Times) is a 15 mins drive away. Kaputas Beach is a 10 mins drive. Both beaches plus the local town of Kas can also be reached by local bus. You can also use the bus to get to Fethiye.
Special Interest Holidays: Kalkan and the surrounding areas have an abundance of ancient historical sites. Xanthos and Patara being just two, which make it an ideal place to come to for walking/hiking holidays (all walks on the Lycian Way are clearly marked). The gorge at Saklikent provides another area for walking, but also river tubing or rafting. The villages surrounding Kalkan are well worth seeing on a bike ride - although the hills are not for the faint hearted. Some local villages also have wonderful restaurants with trout farms and locally cooked specialities.
Scuba diving, water skiing/banana boat are available at the Kalamar Beach Club (5 min walk). All other excursions can easily be booked through our agent, or many others locally in Kalkan.
Villa Manzara has two lounges. The pool level lounge - with double sofa bed, 2 chairs, satellite, 42in flat screen TV, DVD, CD & table football. This also has direct access to the pool.

Each lounge will seat 6 people comfortably and also has wireless internet access.
There are 3 outside dining areas for guests to choose from. One area by the pool, a bougainvillea shaded area off the kitchen, and a third next to the BBQ. This gives guests the opportunity to select the best option for their group. Additionally 2 tables can be joined for large dining groups.
