Why Sarah Matthews chose Kalkan

Why this property? We are greedy & it offered the most space inside & out! It has a garden which is rare in Kalkan, & lots of separate terraces where we can choose to all be together, or have a bit of privacy. It could meet the needs of all members of our extended family, from those with toddlers (the pool is safely separate from the main terrace), through teens (They can hang out with us, or use the roof or other terrace when they want their own space) & on to the OAP's (a ground floor bedroom minimises the stairs).

We are also lazy & its an easy walk into town.

We think the location is perfect, it is on the best side of the bay, as the sun comes up early in the morning & thankfully dips behind the headland early evening when you are in need of some much welcome shade.

What makes this villa unique

Foozeball, basket ball, lots of space, surrounded by olive groves which means we are not being overlooked (which is a big problem for a lot of property in kalkan).

Birthday Girl

  • 5 of 5

We arrived, a family of 6 and out of season. We were very pleased with Villa Iskender and all that it had to offer. The children loved the pool and being of a competitive nature took pleasure in seeing who could make the biggest splash and then beating the adults on the football table. There was plenty of room for us all.

I was there for my birthday and we made full use of the BBQ.

The restaurants that were open made us all very welcome.

Being such early visitors we hadn't expected to be so lucky as to find a boat for a trip but we had a fantastic day at sea.

We enjoyed or trip so much we are all going back again next year.

Villa Iskender and Kalkan are pleasures not to be missed.

We had nd

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic stay in the Villa Iskender, and that everything ran perfectly. In particular, all the arrangements regarding the Villa were so easy that it made for a really relaxed holiday right from the start.

The house is beautifully laid out and we loved all the space and the garden terraces - very hard to drag ourselves away each day to go and do anything else other than sit around there!

Kalkan lived up to expectation and we had some outstanding meals in the restaurants; meanwhile, if we had to design our perfect beach, it would look just like Patara!

Villa Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we got what the pictures of the Villa showed!!!!

We had a wonderful time at the Villa Iskender, missing not a thing and just relaxing in the great garden- and pool area. Being in the villa with 10 adults, everyone had a lot of space. We already knew Kalkan from our private sailing trips and were happy to be back again. Great Restaurants, Shops, Market (Thursday)and.......a lot more!

Thanks to Murat for organising a perfect private boat trip all day long, with lunch, fruits and tea with cake. We all enjoyed swiming in the crystal clear water!!!

And thank you Sarah, for having such a wonderful Villa and letting us stay in it!!!

We'll be back next year for sure!!!

The historic town of Kalkan is situated on Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Coast and was once a simple Turkish/Greek fishing village. It 's ideally situated for those wishing to explore the ancient landmarks of the Lycian Way and the medieval towns of the Taurus Mountains or to visit the beautiful unspoiled coastline at Patara Beech where white sands stretch for over 8 miles & turtles come to nest.

Today's Kalkan is still quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants, mainly looking out over the beautiful harbour, offering all manner of culinary delights to cater for any budgets, together with a good selection of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars.

The villa is well located close to the town school so it is not off the beaten track, it is close enough for an easy stroll into town and by the market, but you may prefer to taxi back as the teraine in Kalkan is hilly there are still many dirt track roads.

Other Activities: Canoeing, paragliding, horse riding walking,
