About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom spacious villa to sleep 8 in the Ortaalan area of Kalkan

Villa Manzara [ translates to stunning views] has been built to high specification and offers private, secluded accommodations perfect for those looking for somewhere to relax whilst still being in walking distance of the town centre.[15 minutes] through ancient olive grove

Outside hosts a private swimming pool with adjacent shallow dip pool. Large terraces including roof terrace all provide unrivalled views of both the sea and Taurus Mountains.

As the sun goes down, these provide the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the sunset with a refreshing drink. There are ample shaded areas to escape the heat of the midday sun.

The villa also has cultivated garden areas,with banana, lemon,lime and orange trees.

Villa Manzara is light and airy with all rooms on ground and middle floors having sliding doors [with mosquito nets] allowing for cooling breezes on hot summer evenings. Decoration is modern with stone tiling throughout being a feature. The kitchen is extremely well appointed.

Villa History: The villa was built and purchased in 2009.The villa was primarily purchased and furnished as a retirement home and where family could visit,as such the furniture and fittings are more luxurious than the general letting home.We decided to rent in 2010 as our early retirement plans were put on hold and had a successful first year with a number of repeat bookings.

We constantly upgrade the villa and for the new season will have a number of new sunbeds on the roof -terrace as well as the dining furniture.The covers for the sunbeds are replaced annually. As well as the large BBQ to suit a large family there is a smaller BBQ which is ideal for a smaller party.The villa is not overlooked by any other property.

A large safe is situated in one of the bedrooms on the second floor.

Internet access

There are 3dining ares ,one inside andtwo outside.Theese ares all have tables and chairs to seat 8.

About Mr Ernest Roden

We have been coming to Kalkan on holiday for many years and liked its laid back atmosphere.We originally bought an apartment in Kalamar and in 2009 decided to buy a large new luxury villa.Villa Manzara ideally suited our needs.It is in a quiet location,nearer the town and has magnificent sea views.We bought originally as a holiday home with a view to spending more time in Kalkan.However,in 2010 we decided to rent and we have had many satisfied guests who have repeated their bookings or have recommended the villa to family and friends.

Mr Ernest Roden purchased this villa in 2009

Why Mr Ernest Roden chose Kalkan

The villa is modern and airy with a large open living area with 3 sets of large double patio doors leading out to the terraces and pool.The villa has been finished to a high modern standard[to suite our taste]while fixture and fittings are better than a normal rental property.The stone floors throughout give a cooling effect in summer while the patio doors can be kept open as there are sliding mosquito nets on each opening.Kalkan is a beautiful harbour town and Villa Manzara has stunning views over the town.During the day you can watch sailing boats entering the bay and harbour while in the evening the illuminated streets and resteraunts are a delight to see.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with the villa for many reasons.All the rooms in the villa are very spacious and when we have had our large family over the villa never seems crowded.There are 4 wetrooms plus an outdoor shower so queues for bathing are eradicated.The pool easily accomodates 8 guests and the separate small poo lallows young children to play in safety or adults to sit and cha twith a refreshing drink or while away the time reading a book.There is a large roof terrace with an adjacent small kitchen complete with a fridge.In the villa there are 3 dining tables with chairs.One is inside while the others are on the roof terrace and on the terrace adjacent to the kitchen.On the second floor there is a walk around balcony with tables and seating outside the bedrooms.The villa gardens and pool are illuminated in the evenings.the villa is not overlooked by other properties and has sea and harbour views from all levels.

An outstanding villa with the most incredible view

  • 5 of 5

We were expecting this villa to be suberb & it certainly met our expectations & so much more. The villa was incredibly spacious & clean. The facilities were excellent with everything you could wish for. The beds were really comfortable & the whole villa felt so luxurious. The swimming pool was fabulous. Our family spent so much time in there and sunbathing around the pool. The outdoor space was to the same high standard as the interior, making our stay truly memorable. Days spent soaking up the sun with those stunning views. So nice to have a drink on the terrace & watch the sun go down. Spectacular! It was equally nice to spend time our there on an evening with the villa & pool illuminated dining 'al fresco'. We could have spent all of our holiday at the villa but did manage to pull ourselves away to sample some fab restaurants in the resort & enjoyed some days on the beautiful beach & even managed to squeeze in a boat trip. A very relaxing holiday enjoyed by all our party. Car hire was straight forwad & inexpensive. We would give this villa our highest recommendation & can't wait to go back. ;-)

Fantastic villa, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we've been to Kalkan and Villa Manzara. Again we were not disappointed. The owners and maintenance team were very helpful with all aspects of the holiday and everything went very smoothly. The villa is very airy with fabulous views over the bays and harbour. The villa is very comfortable with ample, modern furniture both inside and on the balconies and terraces. My favourite place was sitting on the balcony having breakfast and watching the many boats exiting the pretty harbour. Our young children enjoyed playing in the pool or just sitting in the adjoining plunge pool reading a book. The pool, terraces and gardens were kept immaculate by Muzo and his maintenance team. Maintenance was conducted in the mornings and did not disrupt our leisurely days around the pool.

Kalkan itself is a pretty village with winding roads down to the harbour. There is an abundance of high quality restaurants and we were not disappointed by the ones that we tried. We will certainly return to Kalkan for a third time and book Villa Manzara once again.

Brilliant Villa and views

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic holiday. Villa is great and the views are stunning. We loved Kalcan and will definitely be returning. The owner really supported us in organising airport transfers, car hire and welcome pack and the local management team could not have been more helpful.

A beautiful heaven on earth...

  • 5 of 5

We came from Norway to Kalkan, this beautiful heaven on earth. Villa Manzara is a peaceful place with nice breeze and magnificent view. We especially liked the modern atmosphere in the villa, all built to a high standard. The owners were helpful and friendly, and spot on with following up our questions and e-mails. We had a memorable time with lots of sunbathing by the pool and nice dinners in Kalkan almost every evening.

Also we would like to give a warm thank you to the maintenance team, Nilgün and Musafer, who were really helpful and friendly. They invited us to a day trip in Kas, were we looked at a property under construction. We had a great trip, although we din`t buy anything. Yet…. J For anybody who go to Kalkan, we recommend you to travel at least once to Kas, as the road between Kalkan and Kas is supposed to be one of the most beautiful in the world.

We have no problems with recommending Villa Manzara to other travellers.

Also we are quite sure that we will come back to this lovely place to stay again our self, may be already next summer.

Wonderful holiday, beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at the lovely Villa Manzara. Can't recommend it enough. The location is fantastic, I think one of the best in Kalkan, set high above the village with amazing views over the bay. We went with a party young adults who spend all day lazing by the pool as it was so hot! The air conditioning in all rooms and the mosquito screens were very welcome. I would recommend having a car as the walk back up to the villa from the town would be a bit of a pull, although apparently the local taxis are plentify and reasonably priced. Kalkan is a lovely town, with great boutique shops and rooftop restaurants. Thank goodness not much nightlife but the teenagers seemed quite happy with the one or two bars which played music and had a dance floor. That was quite enough for them! One of the best holidays we have had and the service and attention to detail from Ernie and the maintenance team was excellent.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Date of Stay: June 2011. Have recently returned from a fantastic 10 days in the beautiful Villa Manzara and can't wait to return. The villa was stunning and the views over Kalkan Bay completely breathtaking. Every level had a fantastic view which you could never tire from looking at and the roof terrace a perfect place to sip cocktails and chill. The villa and pool was kept to an extremely high standard and was well maintained throughout our stay. Kalkan town was a 10-15 minute walk but worth every step with a huge variety of restaurants and bars and shopping. Taxi service is cheap and reliable and the people are ultra friendly and could never do enough. Boat trip is a must with great personal service and home cooked food on board. We had a party of 7 including young children and the entire holiday catered for all. I couldnt recommend Villa Manzara and a visit to Kalkan highly enough - it was a truly memorable experience and one I hope to re visit in the future.

Kalkan is a sophisticated resort being the place for people who dislike mass tourism. It is sometimes referred to as the best kept secret of Turkey. The local people are very friendly and hospitable. Kalkan is built at the foot of the Taurus Mountains and was originally a small fishing village with the old town retaining its old world charm with its many small and winding streets draped with Bougainvillaea. There are many places of interest to visit in and around Kalkan such as the impressive Saklikent Gorge, Patara beach - home of the Loggerhead turtle, the mountain plateau with the village of Bezirgan, the trout farms and restaurants of Islamlar or the historical sites of Xanthos, Letoon, Kekova,and Myra.

Kalkan itself has extensive facilities for boat trips, swimming, diving, snorkelling etc. Kalkan has its own small beach and various beach clubs reached by free water taxi. Stunning natural beaches such as Kaputas are a short bus [dolmus] ride away. Kalkan has a weekly market.
