About Felicity Boothman
We have both worked teaching art in Adult Education for many years. Now that we have retired from teaching, we spend as much time as possible painting in our studio in Greenwich. We find Kalkan the ideal place in which to relax, and enjoy beautiful scenery, delightful swimming in warm water, excellent food, and indulge our interest in ruins!
Felicity Boothman purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Felicity Boothman chose Kalkan
We greatly enjoy wandering around the interesting little streets of the village in the evening, having a quiet drink, and trying out various restaurants. The Turkish people are warm, helpful, and friendly. Virtually everyone speaks English. There is a wealth of archeology to be explored, it is easy to book trips, and 'lazy days' at sea where you are taken by boat to swim in local bays and have lunch on board. The local town beach is about 15 mins walk (pebbly), and there is a long sandy beach at Patara, a short taxi drive. We also enjoy Indigo Beach Club, beside the harbour. Entry 12TL per person for sunbeds and parasols. Lovely restaurant overlooking the harbour on one side, and sea the other. Everything in Kalkan is relaxed and easy.
What makes this Apartment unique
We had loved our holidays in Kalkan for many years, and 9 years ago fell in in love with this wonderful apartment. It is beautifully maintained by friendly, helpful staff, and the pool area is cleaned every early morning and evening. Our apartment is very convenient, being poolside, for getting drinks etc. and there is a toilet on the same floor; we have a private, shaded eating area, overlooking the pool. We also love the covered area, with sofas, shared with the other apartments. The view from the terrace and upstairs, is spectacular, of Kalkan, the sea, and the mountains. Although it is only a ten minute walk down to the village, it is quite steep, and you would probably like to take a taxi (easily obtained from the rank as you enter the village) for the return journey.

Great Kalkan apartment!
This apartment is in Kalkan NOT Kas.
We love it here. Fantastic views and easy walk down the hill
Into the town where there are loads of good restaurants and shops selling gorgeous leather goods, Turkish pottery, clothes etc.
Virtually everyone speaks English and they are all welcoming and friendly.
The sea is beautifully warm, and the boat trips where you swim in various bays, and lunch is provided, are a delight. We particularly enjoy the trip to the sunken city at Kekova, and the wonderful long sandy beach at Patara. A highlight this year was an evening jazz concert in the ancient amphitheater at Arycanda, a world heritage archeological site.
The apartment is very comfortable, with everything you need to make your stay easy and enjoyable.
We'll be back soon!
Great! Thank you for your wonderful feed back.

We're always delighted that you enjoy staying at 'Jasmine' and that you have such a lovely time in Kalkan. It really is a magical place ! Many thanks for your great review.
Excellent Family Apartment with Stunning Views
This holdiay was with a friend and my two children. The facilities were excellent, the apartment felt homely. We enjoyed dining on the patio, with the pool just a few footsteps away. The view of the sea, the islands, and the hills, is unreal! There are three other apartments in this complex, with other holiday homes and villas on this hillside location, which is just outside Kalkan ... five minutes drive, fifteen minutes walk approximately. The apartment was clean and well maintained, customer service was excellent. We enjoyed the local restaurants; Adam's is a must-go restaurant and he offers a pick-up and drop-off 'taxi' service. We also enjoyed our drive up into the mountains to Gombe and the Green Lake, and the evening boat trip to Mouse Island. The children loved the tortoises in the gardens, and the occasional friendly cats that visited from time to time. I would recommend Jasmine Apartment for its quiet but very convenient location and for all it had to offer. We have already decided to go back next year!
Thank you so much for a really good comprehensive review describing our property and its location. We are so pleased that you enjoyed it and Kalkan, and we look forward to your return visit.

Kalkan has many interesting shops selling leather goods, jewellery, fabrics, pottery, etc. and excellent restaurants with a variety of prices to choose from.
