The accommodation comprises two double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms (all with air-conditioning) plus three sofa-beds for additional flexibility.

Ample outdoor spaces include a ground floor terrace, the pool area and a panoramic roof terrace all combining to provide total flexibility - ideal for families or friends sharing.
In our absence, Ismail looks after the villa assisted by Volkan. One or other will meet you when you arrive and give you the keys to the villa. Ismail will provide you with a welcome pack, with our compliments, including bottled water, eggs, bread, tea, milk and other basics to help you get going. Each morning he, or one of his team, will clean the pool and sweep the terraces and pool area. Ismail lives two minutes away from the villa and he will be delighted to do anything he can to help you or to answer any questions you may have.
A safe is available in the villa for guests to keep their valuables secure and a 19 litre bottled water dispenser providing chilled water 'on tap' is located in the kitchen. Re-fills are available at the local supermarket at a very low cost....moreless

The enchanting harbour village of Kalkan, with its own sand and pebble beach and a number of beach clubs with various watersport attractions, is one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's stunnning Lycian Coast. With the complete absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoilt haven with crystal clear sea, historic architecture, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality. The many places of interest nearby include the gorge at Saklikent, the architectural site of Xanthos and the sunken city of Kekova. A 15 minute drive from Kalkan is Patara; an 18 km stretch of golden sand where turtles lay their eggs at night and the site of a Roman port with attendant wonderful ruins, including a complete amphitheatre and triumphal arch. Just behind Kalkan are the mountain villages of Berzigan and Islamlar where wild tortoises are seen during the Spring and the only traffic jam will be the goat herds. There are trout farms in the hills where you can choose your fish for a delicious grilled lunch. Visit Kalkan for the first time and you will quickly fall in love with its old-style charm and gentle rhythm; it is unlikely to be your last visit.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Inge is Dutch, Jerry English and the boys between the two...
Why the Owner Chose Kalkan: Jerry's dear school-friend Ed bought the villa off plan, and we started visiting every year shortly after it was completed. We fell in love with it and Kalkan, and when Ed decided to sell, in we dived.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The location is spot on: just out of the bustle of town, so high enough for the wonderful views. Most importantly, it is a five minute walk into the town centre and all the wonderful restaurants, shops and bars. Therefore, not too strenuous a climb back and no need of car or taxi. Aperitifs on the roof terrace cannot be surpassed! It is spacious and comfortable, with swimming pool, BBQ, aircon in each room and wifi. It also sits between two olive groves, affording more than usual privacy. And we have lovely people to look after you during your stay.
