The pool is approximately 4m wide, 5m long and 1.8m deep. There is no shallow end so small children need to be supervised at all times. The terrace around the pool is made of rough anti-slip stone so may not be suitable for very small children. We supply comfortable sun lounges and parasols on the terraces around the pool. The cabana and BBQ is set in the small garden and has seating for 8. Subtle lighting or candles if you prefer, add to the ambiance for idyllic dining. There is off street parking for 2 cars.

Kalkan has long been considered the prettiest of the small coastal towns along Turkey’s Lycian turquoise Mediterranean coast, nestling in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains in the heart of the old Lycian region. With its maze of cobbled streets, white washed houses & flowered covered alleyways, Kalkan has the charm of a tranquil fishing village where the simple houses have been lovingly restored, under strict conservation laws, to create the sophisticated atmosphere of an up-market resort. The town is full of enchanting shops which stay open until midnight, a lively harbour, cafes & roof-top restaurants to excite the discerning diner, jazz bars & a very smart marina where beautiful “gulets”, the traditional wood-built fishing boats, moor after day trips or stunning full week cruises. It is a village that has retained the elusive mixture of authentic ambience and relative sophistication that makes it unusual, picturesque & uniquely welcoming as a holiday destination.
