About Cihan Demir
Me and my wife Sevil both were born and had grown up in Istanbul. One of us studied psychological counseling and labor economics and industrial relations did the other. While we were working very hard in multinational company, We started to dream that we could relocate and continue our life in a calm, coastal town”. Then instead of dreaming, we decided to take action and make realised our plans. in August 2011 moved to Kalkan, nearby Mediterranean Sea, where we spent most of our previous holidays and always desired to live in. When we first visited Islamlar Village, we were just charmed and worked to built a lovely property to make our family, friends and guests have same emotions. We are waiting for you to visit us and see same dream.
Cihan Demir purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Cihan Demir chose Kaş
Pine trees, grape vines, clean air, cosy restaurants and spring water of Islamlar Village have captivated us in the first look.
What makes this Villa unique
Travelling and staying in cosy towns, boutique hotels and villas are one of our indispensable habits. We have some routine places to visit in a year and want to be someone's routine place and persons to see in a life period. We thought every detail in the house as a guest and aimed to increase our guests' comfort to the highest level. We tried our villa to be harmonious with the village life and we used natural materials as we could. So we mixed wood's natural side and concrete's durability in our villas. Sleeping and waking up in a tastefully furnished wood room is really different. Here, you can see traces of traditional and modern life. Also the location of villas is unique with nature, mountain and sea-islands views.

Lovely Villa in hillside village
Spacious three bed villa with pool. The villa is located in a small but popular village in the hills overlooking Kas. The village has five good restaurants specialising in Trout as there is a trout farm in the village. All restaurants are within easy walking distance of the villa.
The villa was clean and the management company very helpful.
Villa Defne with amazing views
Today is our last day in Villa Defne. We stayed at Villa Defne for a week in first week of May and it was really amazing. We are very sad now because we don't know how to leave here and turn back. It has a really unique location and charming views from both terrace and balconies. Second floors are completely wooden and the owner has used natural materials. The owner ( Cihan ) can not be more kind and thoughtful. He prepared some notes and answered all our questions and needs. They are so sensitive about nature and they did not damage the nature of land when they were building Villa Defne. The pool was clean and ready when we arrived and the weather was amazing to swim. There is another villa next to Villa Defne which belongs to Cihan but villas have private pools and gardens. They have placed some pine trees and seperators to increase privacy on terraces and pool areas. It offers a great privacy by these. We will try to come again next year and I highly recommend it. Thanks again Cihan and hope to see you again...
A Great Villa and Location
We have just returned from 6 nights holiday at this great villa. There are Lycian Ways around this village and it is a great location for walking. The village is great with a choice of restaurants in walking distance. There are charming views from the villa to the sea. It has a unique location and it is only 15 minutes from Kalkan to up in the hills. The interior of the villa is beautiful and very well presented. The 4 rooms are all of a generous size and it is very well equipped. It is very tastefully furnished. The kitchen has a large fridge and there is a dishwasher as well as a washing machine upstairs. The two shower rooms are great. The owner could not have been more caring and helpful, even bringing us fresh local food on two occasions and leaving us a welcome gift upon arrival. The pool's size was good and it was clean and well kept. Overall it was a great villa to rent and the location is perfect away from the busy port of Kalkan but close enough to easily visit. We were 7 persons during our holiday but it is so easily combined with the villa next door, if you are more than 8 persons.
Peace in nature
We stayed at Villa Defne in September and it was the most peaceful, relaxing and joyful holiday that we have ever had. When we arrived to villa we were first fascinated with the incredible view of Kalkan village and small islands. The house was surrounded vines and we had the chance to eat grapes from the tree while watching squirrels. There was a huge terrace outside equipped with sitting places and day beds. The house which was decorated as both country and bohemian style was very comfortable and well equipped makes you feel at home. Actually we found it better than in pictures. The weather was excellent during our stay especially for walking on Lycian Way and spent amazing time in nature. We highly recommend local restaurants in Islamlar village which is 5 minutes away from the house location. You feel yourself totally in wild nature but all your basic needs are just 5 minutes away by walking, it is fantastic. Many thanks to Cihan for his hospitality and assistance for all our needs. Briefly Villa Defne will be our first choice in our next holiday plans!
My wife and I had a lovely time at the villa. The house is finished beautifully and the main bedroom and balcony very comfortable.
There's plenty of outside space on the deck with comfy chairs and a dining table all outside. The pool although not the biggest was fine for the two of us. Islamlar is much quieter than Kalkan and the view from the villa down to the sea is uninterrupted. We would definitely visit again. The only minus point was the close proximity of the villa next door as the pools are very close to one another. Worth checking if the villa next door is also booked if you're looking for privacy.
Thanks for your kind touch Jon. I'm very happy to hear that you have enjoyed your holiday and wait to see you soon again. We have 2 villas on same plot, these are also very suitable for large groups or families too. That's why our prices is less than secluded villas in Islamlar. But it is possible to book both villas at the same period and have a great privacy. You know our location is really unique. The cost will nearly be same with a villa which is brand new, secluded and has great views with a real natural atmosphere. Hope to see you soon...
Eine wunderschöne ruhige Oase ideal zum Erholen.
Wir haben in der Villa Defne 9 Tage verbracht und waren begeistert. Die Villa liegt in ruhiger Lage umringt von Olivenbäumen in Höhenlage mit einem wunderschönen Blick auf das Meer.
Das Highlight ist natürlich der eigene Pool der täglich früh morgens gereinigt wird und jeden Tag genutzt wurde.
Die Vermieter Kerem und Cengiz sind sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit.
Alles perfekt es gibt absolut nichts auszusetzen.
Wir würden jederzeit wieder die Villa Defne anmieten.

A car is essential for anyone staying at the villa and car hire can be arranged through the Termessos Agency in Kalkan, the agency that looks after the upkeep of the villa. Whether or not one hires a Termessos vehicle, guests are asked to report to the agency office in Kalkan from where they will be taken to the villa.

Scenic coastal drive to laid back Kas (34km), Saklikent Gorge for a splash up a spectacular ravine (35km), Kekova Island with its beautiful enclosed bay for a boat trip and swim (60km).
