Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Stroll Into Town, Seafront A 5 Minute Walk Away
About ALISON JONES
We visited Kalkan for the first time in September 2011, and were so enchanted by its beauty, charm and the warmth and friendliness of the people that we decided to purchase a property. The Olympos Apartments were a perfect choice ... the stunning panoramic sea views took our breath away, and its location affords peace and privacy with the town a gentle 10 minute stroll away. We visit the apartment frequently and cannot resist the allure and magic of Kalkan .... it's such a unique and wonderful place. We sincerely hope you choose to visit Kalkan and experience the wonderful scenery, harbour, coastline, historic sites, watersports, quaint town centre and fabulous restaurants this charming town has to offer.
ALISON JONES purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why ALISON JONES chose Kalkan
The apartment is situated in the prestigious, highly sought after location of Kormuluk and offers stunning panoramic sea views of the bay and surrounding islands. The town is a short stroll away, yet the property affords peace and quiet. Nestled into the hillside the views are stunning .... the area of the coastline overlooked by the apartment is described by the Sunday Times as one of the top ten views in the world .... it really has to be seen to be believed!

Absolutely beautiful apartment. Ten minute stroll into kalkan. Very well equipped and the views are just stunning. Excellent communication from owner. Looking forward to our next stay already.
Fabulous with amazing views
This is the 2nd time at Olympos Haven Apartment. With its amazing views.
The apartment has everything you need and Alison is a pleasure to deal with.
The apartment is walking distance to Palm Beach Club & Zest Beach Club but not for the frail as lots of steps or a very steep hill.
A flat 15min walk into town. Or 3min taxi ride for 15 lira .
