Villa Caretta - Kalkan, FANTASTIC

From the start of the process, in enquiring about the holiday, to booking & taking the holiday you could not wish to deal with a more helpful & trustworthy couple as Dick & Jenny.
There is always a few nerves when you land at the airport, will the prearranged taxi be there? will the villa meet expectations? Well the taxi was waiting for us as planned and when we met Tracy (the local contact) at the Villa we were thrilled, when we were shown around. The photos & description were accurate, but in fact reality was better! The property was spotlessly clean and more spacious than we imagined. There had been a minor water leak in a bathroom prior to our arrival. This had been resolved quickly & effectively by Tracy. This gave confidence, that in the unlikely event that a serious problem occured it would be dealt with speedily.
Each day Rambo the pool man came and ensured the pool was kept spotlessly clean. The mature gardens were well maintained and gave privacy.
Tracy the local contact was extremely helpful & gave lots of worthwhile advice. Her husband Captain Ali operates a boat & our day out on the Zeus was a highlight of the holiday. Captain Ali, or should that be Chef Ali cooked us a fantastic meal onboard the Zeus. We had a lazy day snorkelling at various points around the bay.
The property is on a hill. This affords lovely views of the town & the bay. It takes a leasurely 15- 20 min stroll into the town & harbour. We enjoy walking so the stroll back up the hill was not a problem. Some people may prefer to use a taxi & these are in abundance and are cheap to use.
People of limited mobility may find the steep & uneven roads a problem.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to a friend. I am sure, having found this gem of a villa I will make repeat bookings.
There are over 200 restaurants in Kalkan and our favorites include the Mussaka, the Aubergine, Sun Terrace & Ilyada. The food in every restaurant was to a good standard.
There are plenty of activities to do should you wish to leave the sanctuary of your villa, but we were looking for a relaxing, romantic week in the sun and this was perfect.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had such a good time in our villa and we would be more than happy to welcome you again. If you would like to return please be aware that our bookings start quite early. For the 2009 season we receivede the first enquiries in November 2008 and half of March 2009 we were almost fully booked. Each consecutive year we have more repeat customers and more early bookings.

PERFECT .....

fed up of staying at hotels and having to go with their mealtimes, etc, my husband and I decided to book a villa holiday this year for a change. We found Villa Caretta (actually via recommendations on Trip Adviser) and decided to make some enquiries. From the very first email the owners, Dick and Jenny, were as helpful as possible and emailed back straight away if we had any queries etc. We booked for 2 weeks. They also organised our transfers from Dalaman Airport. We arrived quite late but the instructions for the keys to the villa etc were spot on and we were soon inside. What a fantastic place - lovely open plan kitchen/lounge area; patio doors on to the pool; bathroom; upstairs to the 2 bedrooms and another bathroom and then up again to the fantastic roof terrace which is fully equipped with a BBQ, settee and chairs and a dining table. Next morning we explored outside - a lovely pool area with ample sun loungers and another dining table placed in the shady area. We spent most of our days at the villa and only ventured once to the beach. We ate out a lot, but also ate in during the evenings - either on the roof terrace or at the pool. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could want, but a lot of the local restaurants provide a delivery take away service too. All in all a great relaxing holiday and we have already booked for next year. Dick and Jenny were great throughout as was Tracey the local villa manager who gave good advice on the surrounding areas, etc. The villa is a 5-10 minute stroll to the main streets of Kalkan - my husband is disabled and didn't find the walk a problem - although coming back if you have shopping etc it's best to get a taxi (cheap at £2-£3 per trip). Just perfect!
Owner's Response: Thank you for a great review. It gives an excellent description of what our guests can expect.

Perfect villa for a very relaxed holiday

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 09-Jul-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
All of our party of four were hoping for a holiday with the emphasis on relaxation and Villa Caretta turned out be exactly what we needed.
The villa itself is very comfortable and well equipped so we all felt very much at home. The full depth pool was ideal for cooling off while sunbathing and the rooftop terrace has a wonderful view of the bay: a great place for drinks before heading out to one of the hundreds of restaurants there are to chose from in Kalkan.
The only problem about eating out is choosing which of these to try. Most of them have someone standing outside trying to persuade you eat there but we found it useful to read the reviews left by other visitors in the villa's visitor's book (most of which we agreed with).
A trip out worth taking is to catch the bus to Patara beach - much cheaper than a taxi - both for the splendid beach itself and for the ancient ruins close by.
The weather in June was perfect: sunny and quite hot without being overwhelmingly so, typically somewhere in the low to mid thirties.
We all will return as soon as we can.

Kalkan is a perfect place to explore the Lycian Coast. Villa Caretta is very well-maintained and clean and we really enjoyed the pool and the roof-top terrace. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance. We can absolutely recommend this property.

Best holiday ever

  • Review Submitted: 20-Dec-2012
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2012
We have had a 4 great weeks at Villa Caretta. The first weeks with our 9 years old son, just relaxing by the pool, eating out and walking up and down the streets of Kalkan.
The last 2 weeks our 16 years old son and his girlfriend joined us and we have made tours to Side to shop, to Chimaira to see the eternal flames. take walking shoes with you (:
We have been to Kemer and to all the lovely little towns along the coast from Antalya to Kalkan.
We can recommend a trip to Saklikent Gorge, if you don't want to go as a group do rent a car and go there. It is a phantastic place.
And also, go the the Kalkan Market on Thursday's. It's great fun.

About Villa Caretta, it's a lovely house and has everything you need. And the services ... Tracy is wonderful, helpful and just a phantastic person. Don't ever let her go (:
The pool "boy" ... he's very sweet and comes every day to water the garden and clean and refresh the pool. And always smiling.

We have been lucky to have had both cats and dogs on visit, outside the house of course, but that is normal in Turkey so we love it. Especially our 9 years old loves to pet everything living. Also the turtle that was on a two day visit in the garden (:

We warmly recommend Cafe Ev,. They are so nice, it's good food and it's a nice quiet atmosphere.

And finally thanks to God or Allah, we have had 4 weeks with no less than 25 degrees, high sun and clear skyes.

So dear Dick and Jenny, thanks for the best holiday ever. We hope to come back some day.

Location

Dalaman Airport

Kalkan
Car: not necessary

Kalkan is the place for people that do not like the mass tourism found in many larger cities. Kalkan is sometimes referred to as the best kept secret of Turkey. The local people are very friendly and hospitable. Kalkan is built at the foot of the Taurus mountains. Its many small and winding streets are very romantic but also make Kalkan less accessible for people with a walking disability.

The Kalkan area has a lot of places to visit like the impressive gorge of Saklikent, Patara beach (longest sandy beach of Turkey and famous turtle breading area), the mountain plateau with the village of Bezirgan, the trout farms in Islamlar or the historical monuments of Xanthos, Letoon, Kekova, Myra and others. Kalkan itself has extensive facilities for boat trips, swimming, diving, snorkelling, bird watching, walking etc.
