Mr Leonard Bennett purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Mr Leonard Bennett chose Kaş
Villa Guzel has its own charm and individuality with its cream stonework, tower and large pool. The tower spiral staircase separates the bedrooms to give a feeling guests are not on top of each other and their separate balconies is a bonus. The e sections of the terrace provides a pergola to enjoy meals outside and a seating area where one can sit in the shade or use the BBQ and rustle up a feast or of course lay on the sunbeds and soak up the sun all day. The views of course are wonderful overlooking Kalkan Bay and the Taurus mountains.; .
What makes this Villa unique
We chose the property because it enjoys a good position over looking the bay, The design is individual, along wiith the other seven on the site and buillt to a very high standard by the most reputable of builders Aslan who owns the Likya Hotel and many others. We particularly liked the size of the pool, it is huge and Anne loves her swimming.

Thank you Frank for your Review.
Lovely villa, fabulous pool. Perfect for a relaxing week.
Lovely views and fabulous place to relax. Kalkan is only a short walk away for all your shopping and dining needs. Plenty of things to do if you fancy getting out and about too.
Thank You Lisa for the Review. Hope you will stay with us again. Len
A very good villa in a lovely town
The villa was excellent. Lovely pool and a very comfortable villa. Cleaned daily and the staff are lovely. Enjoyed the walk in every night. I recommend using the top road to the main road. Other roads are very steep. 10 lira for a taxi back. We managed to get a 6 seater to save getting two taxis. The food in Kalkan is a very good standard. The steaks are better than the UK. Unfortunately the agent let us down with the transport from the airport but we managed to get two taxis very easily. Never had this problem before going to turkey. Will probably organise myself next time. The return flight was very late. We left our cases at the Likya spa hotel and used the beach bar below the hotel. They let us use the showers in the hotel for £10 each. Expensive but they did look after our cases for rhe day and provide the towels.
Thankyou Paul for your Review. Pleased you enjoyed your holiday in Villa Guzel & Kalkan. I apologised for the failure of the initial transfer, the only one we have ever had, it was our agents error, I have altered our Guest List to include Ennes car hires mobile and local office number should this ever occur again. They offer the best of services and are very efficient. My Apologies and hope your next stay witll be with us again. Lend
Villa Güzel looked good on the web site and it more than lived up to expectations. What a peaceful location with such lovely views over Kalkan. We liked the nice shaded seated area for reading and sitting under the pergola eating our meals. The pool was very large and our children loved playing on the pool steps. The lounge was very comfortable and the satellite TV great . The WiFi reception was good. We found the Guest Book very useful and the Visitors Book helpful regarding recommended restaurants and particularly the Sunset boat trip which was fantastic. The bedrooms were large light and airy having their own balconies where we often sat and enjoyed a coffee and the views over Kalkan. The upstairs master double had a huge balcony with barbecue and table for six with lovely views over Kalkan .We enjoyed eating there one evening and seeing Kalkan night lights and the sunset but we used the terrace barbecue more frequently. Hakan was helpful and his cleaners and pool man were very likeable and good. It’s about a twelve minute steep downhill walk into Kalkan, we preferred to have a taxi back as they only cost about 15 lira. There were many excellent restaurants and we found the food exceptionally good and particularly enjoyed the Turkish Angora wine . In all we had a lovely holiday in Kalkan at Villa Guzel and would certainly recommend it. Our family are looking forward to returning next year.
Thank you for your Review, we are very pleased you enjoyed your holiday again at Villa Guzel . We look forward to you returning to Kalkan in the future.
Amazing and beautiful!
Wow! We love this villa! We've been with two small children (and 4 adults) 3 times now and would definitely go back! The villa is beautiful both inside and out! The views of kalkan bay are stunning and makes staying in the villa of a night time as much of an event as taking the 10 minute walk down to the town and eating out in one of the many amazing restaurants! The service provided with the villa is second to none. Daily visits from the friendly gardener, pool man and maids allow the villa to be kept clean and in working order continually! Len (the owner) was as always very professional, helpful and informative when dealing with our booking and any questions we had. The journey was made easy with pre booked transfers arranged through Len. We couldn't have wished for a better holiday! From the peace and tranquility of Villa Guzel, to the vibrant and varied traditional and modern restaurants located in the beautiful town of kalkan...so much to choose from and see! Will definitely be back...loved, loved, loved it!
Anne & I thank you for your Review. Pleased that you and your family continue to enjoy your holidays in Villa Guzel. We look forward to your future visits.
Places Of Special Interest :
Patara Beach, an 18 kilometre-long strip of sand, bordered on its ends by mountains, should not be missed with its gorgeous landscape and great swimming. It is a national park and home to many birds, also the breeding ground of the endangered Loggerhead turtle, and is acknowledged as one of the best beaches in Turkey.
Kaputas, seven kilometres from Kalkan, along the most beautiful coastal road to Kas is the most striking gorge. Plaques on the bridge commemorate the deaths of the workers killed during the road construction. Accessible by 120 very steep steps nestles the most perfect sandy shingle cove and beach. Close by, the Blue Cove is marked by a road sign, but simply look for a small gathering of yachts admiring the spectacle.
Kas, a twenty seven kilometre drive from Kalkan along the wonderful coastal road, is a pleasant working town surrounded on three sides by the mountains. Life centres around the harbour and town square with the usual tea houses, bars, restaurants and shops
One of the most beautiful beaches in Turkey and voted one of the world's best beach in a Sunday Times supplement is Patara beach, 18 kilometers of golden sand, which is reached by car in about 20 minutes or by local bus. The car entrance fee is around £5, but this lasts for one week. The beach's facilities offer hire of sun beds and shades. A small cafe provides good snacks and toilets are provided. It is set amongst a protected historical site which is well worth a visit.
A car is not necessary. We recommend and can arrange transfer from Dalaman airport direct to the villa by air conditioned vehicle as follows: Dalaman Car 1/3 people £65, Minibus 4/7 £80, ( cost each way.)
Taxis are cheap and readily available to and from the villa. Dolmus buses operate between Kalkan and local beaches and villages. Many local excursions available.
Area Description: Kalkan, described as Turkey's best kept secret, is a small, sophisticated resort set on the Turkish Mediterranean Riviera. The town nestles on the foot of the Taurus mountains and was once a small fishing village, it is now a charming holiday resort consisting of cobbled streets, housing interesting shops selling jewellery, carpets and local goods. One can enjoy bartering with the shopkeepers and their hospitality offering of apple tea.
Enjoy a beer at the bars on the picturesque harbour, admire the gullets, the fishing and sailing boats, or hire for the day your privately skippered boat and be taken to the coves for a swim in the turquoise sea, sunbathe, enjoy the food, all at unbelievable value.
Visit the small pebbled beach close by the harbour or the local beach clubs and enjoy the water sports available, such as snorkeling, scuba diving and wind surfing.
Hire a car or join a local excursion to visit one of the many historical ancient sites such as Patara, Xanthos, Tios, a trip to the Taurus mountains or the amazing Saklikent Gorge.
Enjoy mountain walks, climbing, trekking, caving and parascending, have a relaxing Turkish bath or massage to ease away the aches and pains.
In the evening, sample some of the finest food at the harbour side restaurants or those with roof top terraces offering views of Kalkans wonderful illuminated nightlife.
A Sunday Times article likened visitors to Kalkan to those attracted to Tuscany and the Dordogne, we agree entirely, Kalkan is for the discerning holiday maker.
