This is your dream of a small Mediterranean fishing village, probably the best kept secret in Europe. Kalkan is an enchanting harbour village on one of the most beautiful and unspoilt stretches of the Southern Turkish coast. Narrow, cobbled streets, bougainvillea-covered villas, roof terrace bars and harbour-side restaurants. Kalkan offers a pleasantly surprising mixture of local ethnicity and a relaxed sophistication. Away from the hustle and bustle, a place to relax and enjoy the good things in life. There is a stunning coastline against the backdrop of the Taurus mountains, and the must see ancient sites of Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara and Patara, are all no more than a day trip away. If you have never been to Kalkan and watched the sun go down on Kalkan bay then it’s a must! Quoted in the Travel pages of the Sunday Times as having one of the '10 Best Views in the World'. The Guardian likens the town to 'the Italian Riviera minus the poseurs.'

A lovely apartment.
We stayed at this lovely apartment for a week in June. It is a very comfortable, well equipped apartment in a courtyard setting on a very friendly, good looking complex. The apartment is close to town which you can access through the school yard thus avoiding the usual hills into town. Hopefully we will return next year.
The property was as it said an the tin first class well maintained excellent facilities and only a short work into town.
The service offered by the owner was first class a small provision to get you started and the bed made up with towels was nice.
