A classy villa right on the Mediterranean? That’s Water's Edge (previously known as Grania's House) with only sea bathing platforms and large pools between it and the sea. This airy and spacious 3-bed villa is set in prime position just above the water’s edge in a garden oasis of oleander, palm and olive trees at prestigious Club Patara/Patara Prince Resort. It is a “one-off” in the resort, unlike any other, and made special not only for its unique position with uninterrupted sea views across the bay and out to sea from all rooms but also for the luxurious garden suite we created a few years ago, matching the quality in the rest of the villa. It is the perfect romantic setting in which to relax and unwind. A few paces through the lush garden take you immediately to the large pools – plenty of scope for serious swimming - and sea bathing from platforms over the rocks. The water is blue-flagged for quality and a gloriously tempting pellucid azure. The resort hotel, restaurants and bars are only a few steps further. Our guests can take advantage of a 25% discount in the resort’s restaurants and bars. Do look at kalkanselect for more information. The right choice for an especially magical experience, this air-conditioned villa has it all.

The villa main entrance leads into the open-plan sitting room with traditional fireplace and big French windows, stylishly decorated with Ottoman coffee table, antique artefacts, kelim rugs on the floor and as cushions on the generous and comfortable low seating. The well-equipped kitchen is separate, overlooking sea and garden, and has a full size cooker, extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, toaster, coffee-maker and electric kettle.

Club Patara/Patara Prince Resort is one of Kalkan’s best addresses, where terracotta houses with pantile roofs are set in beautifully-kept gardens running down to the seafront, where Water's Edge is located. This exclusive gated complex with 24-hour security, was designed by the distinguished Turkish architect, Turhan Kaso. Directly below the villa is the Adult-only pool for over-16s with the main pool and sea-bathing from platforms over the rocks only a stone's throw further from Water's Edge, on the seafront, and there is another pool at the top of the resort as well as one in the health centre. There are two tennis courts (one floodlit); restaurants, bars, a boutique hotel, shop and other amenities. Watersports are available. Cars are not allowed in the resort apart from loading and unloading baggage but there is a free shuttle mini-bus to take you through the resort as well as a water taxi over to Kalkan harbour. Club Patara is only a few minutes' boat or taxi ride from Kalkan harbour and village or a pleasant twenty minute walk in along a quiet side road.
