About Cecilia Paton
We first fell under the charm of Kalkan in 2009 when we thought it might be a good idea to find a property in a sunny place to retire to. My husband is a Geophysicist and travels the world and I worked until recently as an Occupational Therapist. We live in rural North Wales close to Snowdonia National Park. We have two teenage daughters and three dogs.
Cecilia Paton purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Cecilia Paton chose Kalkan
I can remember seeing quite a few characterless villas which lacked soul along the mediterranean coast of Turkey in our search for a holiday home. I can still remember that drive over the hill and that first glimpse of Kalkan Bay and we immediately felt at home. It took us a couple of trips to find the right property in Kalkan. Whilst views are important in Kalkan so is position. In Villa Amelia we have found both. The property although recently renovated retains the charm of an older style property. It has fabulous views from the roof terrace yet is situated in quiet residential area and has a very short level walk into town.
What makes this Villa unique
We have found this short walk to be entirely liberating for us as at home any trip out normally involves at least a 30 mile round trip. We are normally accompanied by at least four teenagers on any trip to Kalkan. We do not have to act as taxi driver as they can easily walk into town for a meal or to go to the beach club. The heated pool really has extended the letting season for this villa. Swimming now from March to November! Since we have added the roof terrace shade and roof kitchen we have had guests comment on how well it works for intergenerational living or perhaps two couples sharing a holiday. Perfect for young families who want to bring grandparents along but retain some privacy or independence from each other.

this is year number 6 for us in Kalkan and I can honestly say the villa was in the best location for easy walking back and forth into town, the villa is lovely, very nicely decorated and is seriously well equipped. The pool is fab with an amazing training jet stream for serious swimming. The rooftop area is perfect for those 6 o'clock cocktails and watching the boats come back into the harbour. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for your review I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at our Villa. We look forward to seeing you again.
Wonderful villa with amazing facilities and views
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at Villa Amelia. The owners have thought of practically everything from the luxury of the interiors to helping us to arrange our taxis from/to the airport with a local contact to having a water machine in the kitchen to save you lugging bottled water to the villa! It was lovely to be welcomed by Ibo (late in the evening) who enthusiastically showed us around the villa (and his amazing handiwork in putting in the new kitchen)! He was there whenever we needed him and along with the cleaners was always very polite and helpful. We loved the pool and the jetstream provided lots of energetic swimming! The location for us was perfect with the gentle stroll into town (and the odd taxi back to assist my elderly mother)! The roof terrace was a very relaxing and cool place to be in the late afternoon and early evening and the views were spectacular right across the Kalkan bay and town. The owner was very helpful before we went, answering all our (many) queries and putting us at ease with staying at the villa. Kalkan is a lovely fishing village which has still managed to retain its charm and friendliness.This was our 9th time in Kalkan but our first in a villa rather than a hotel and we would definitely return to Villa Amelia and would highly recommend it, Thank you for our lovely relaxing holiday.
Thank you for your review I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Our Perfect Place
We have been to Kalkan for Ten years and now have found the perfect place as our base. But that's all your getting, because if I told you more we may not have the villa when we want! Kalkan awaits you, so just come and fall in love?
Thank you for your review. We look forward to your next visit!
We stayed for two weeks over Easter and had a wonderful stay. The villa has everything you need and is within easy walking distance of the shops and nice restaurants. We stayed slightly out of season but had great weather. On the cooler days it was great to use the heated pool. We really enjoyed the terrace and spent the evenings playing cards with the children and enjoying watching the sun go down. Grover met us on arrival and was there to answer any questions. He also arranged our airport transfer as well. I would definitely recommend this villa.
Thank you for your review I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay you were the first people to try out the new water heater for the pool as it would probably be too cold to use the pool this time of year without it!

Kalkan is famous for its small winding cobbled streets leading down to the harbour. There are many excellent restaurants many on roof tops as well as some interesting shops. The village is protected from mass tourism so its charm is maintained.
When it is really hot a short drive up the mountain to Islamlar to visit the trout restaurants can be a welcome break from the heat on the coast.
If you would like to hire a chef to cook you and your friends a meal at home this can be arranged but be sure to mention it when booking as the chef is very busy in peak season.
