About Kalkan: The village of Kalkan descends to the sea and picturesque harbour in terraces of white-washed and wooden houses, many boasting ornately carved Ottoman timber balconies, draped in bougainvillaea. Very strict building rules ensure that the village remains small, in tact and unspoilt. The streets and alleyways are a veritable Aladdin's cave - think carpet bazaars, antique shops, ceramic stores, and arty jewellery shops where pieces are custom-made in silver, gold, turquoise and amber.
Sights: Cruises - a day at sea is a must. Take a trip on one of the many Gulet cruises from the harbour and visit stunning secluded coves. Beaches - Kalkan beach is next to the harbour. It's a pebble beach so the sea is unbelievably clear. Sandy Kaputas beach is 10 mins away while Patara Beach (30 mins away) is regularly voted one of the best beaches in the world. Ancient Ruins - Kalkan offers easy access to many great classical sites such as Xanthos, Patara, Letoon, Pinara and Tlos
Kalkan's Restaurants: Kalkan is famous throughout Turkey for its roof-top bars and restaurants which offer fabulous views of the harbour, the sea - and at night, the stars. For such a small place Kalkan has an astonishing range of restaurants. You can sit cross-legged on kilims and floor cushions and be served traditional Turkish fare, enjoy freshly-caught seafood at one of the smart harbour side establishments, or feast on the closest thing you'll get to home-cooking at one of the charmingly low-key, back street eateries

Kalkan is a small peaceful village on the Med which hasn't been touched by mass tourism. Set against the majestic backdrop of the Taurus mountains, it occupies possibly the most beautiful position along Turkey's stunning Lycian coast. The area is renowned for it's natural wonders such as Patara Beach and Saklikent Gorge and it's wealth of historical sights such as Xanthos, Patara, Letoon and Tlos. Villa Florence is situated in a commanding, elevated position with lovely views over Kalkan Bay and is a short, 10 minute walk into the town. The nearest shop is 1 minute walk away. The villa is sited in a plot of 4 other similar villas, none of which overlook each other and separated by thick garden vegetation. The plot is backed by natural landscaping (mainly olive trees) and the nearest villa is approximately 1 kilometer away. We are very close to the main, though generally quiet main road into Kalkan and we are opposite the sleepy, new bus garage with cafe and barbers.
Other Activities: Archaeology, historical sights, local markets, turkish baths, canoeing, 4 wheel drive trekking, white water rafting
Golf: The nearest golf course at present is about 1 hour away in Fetiye although there are constant talks about building one near Kalkan.Please enquire for news!.
