The area also has a number of restaurants and two small supermarkets. Villa Manzara is on is a cul-de-sac in Kalamar Bay and as such makes for a very peaceful location.

As well as the local beach and beach clubs the famous 18km Patara Beach is a 10 min drive away. Kaputas Beach, equally famous in many publicity photos of Turkey, is also a 10 min drive. Both beaches and the local town of Kas, and Fethiye farther afield can be reached by bus. SPECIAL INTEREST HOLIDAYS: Kalkan and the surrounding areas have an abundance of ancient historical sites such as Xanthos and Patara. It is 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, river tubing or rafting. For those who love a real adventure, there is paragliding from the top of the mountain in Kas, and as well as mountain biking and quad biking nearby. 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 locally cooked specialities. They have stunning views across both Kalkan and Patara. There really is no better place to dine and watch the sunset! MOST IMPORTANTLY, this is our home. We are not part of a large company.
