4 generations in one villa!
We had an amazing time in villa terra mate. Villa was everything we wanted and accurately described. Perfect for large families there was 10 of us ranging from 7 months to 72. there is lots of space to socialize and also places to hide away for a while. Kalkan a short taxi ride away (20 lira) is a lovely resort. Taxis are recommended as the area is very hilly. Only slight negative for me was the beds are quite hard but that's just me.
If I manage to get my while family together again like this would definitely return.
Lovely family holiday villa.
We have just returned from a lovely two family holiday in this beautiful homely villa. The location of the villa was perfect in the quiet village of Kalamar with the beach club at the bottom of the road and plenty of restaurants within a five minute walk. We also walked the twenty minutes into Kalkan daily which had lots of lovely little shops and a huge selection of restaurants. The whole area was beautiful and gave us a lovely first impression of Turkey.
The villa itself was beautifully presented and immaculate. We were two families (4 adults and 4 children) and had lots of space to enjoy both company or peace and quiet. The area around the pool is quite small and doesn't get too much sun at this time of year but the fact that there are so many balconies and a huge rooftop area with a stunning view meant that this was not a problem! In fact it was a good excuse to make use of the rooftop bar! Our pool and pool area was maintained regularly throughout our stay and our host was available to answer any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our first time to the area and found there was plenty to keep the children occupied without going far from the village. We will definitely be back!
Just a stunning family holiday
Villa Tera Mare was one of the first villas I looked at for our family holiday this year. We're a big family (11) and needed a big villa but not just any big villa, one that was filled with energy just like us. I fell in love with Tera Mare and couldn't chose another. I must say it didn't disappoint, everyone from the 62yr old to the 5yr old were impressed. Mustafa was a pleasure to work with and the site manager Derman was wonderful. If you're looking for a villa with style Tera Mare is the one, on our first morning Derman arrived with all of the information you will need for your entire stay, taxi numbers, restaurant recommendations, water delivery number etc and a pre credit phone to make calls. Villa Tera Mare is in a hillside town so expect hills but the views from the rooftop are breathtaking. The villa is clean and there is enough space to enjoy time together and time apart. Kalkan is a special place as is Villa Tera Mare.
Beautiful property with authenticity
My family and I had a great stay at Villa Terra Mare. It is located Kalamar Bay side of Kalkan so is a short taxi drive away from the main town and costs 20lira. The roof top bar has great views across the bay and we made use of watching the sunset here in the evening. Every bedroom was large and spacious and there were lots of different areas to the villa which meant you could also get some alone time if you wanted. The one point I would say let the villa down slightly was the fact there wasn’t a lot of space around the pool and the sun didn’t hit the sun beds until midday - but not a big deal breaker! Mustafa was a great host, he was contactable all the time and was always very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this villa!!!
Great family holiday in Kalkan
We decided to book Villa Tera Mare due to its large size (group of 10) & quirky features.
Upon arrival the villa did not disappoint with a fantastic open plan kitchen/living space, plenty of outdoor seating & a good sized swimming pool. A few more sun-beds around the pool would have been nice but it didn't stop us making full use of the outside areas.
The stand out feature has to be the rooftop bar which provides stunning views of the bay & is the perfect setting for evening drinks!
Kalkan itself is a beautiful place with lots of restaurants & bars. Some are within walking distance along with a small supermarket (prepare for lots of hills though!) but a taxi to the centre is roughly 15TL so we headed there most nights for the extra variety.
We'd definitely recommend staying at Villa Tera Mare. It's perfect for large groups & the quirky decor & features of the property add that little bit extra to your holiday experience!
Wow, awesome, what a view!
What a beautiful space. It was clean, tidy and had been stylishly and tastefully appointed. We will definitely be coming back and would recommend to anyone. The weather, sea and food were amazing but the people were even better!!!
