SWIMMING AND WATERSPORTS
In addition to the Patara Club swimming pools, there is easy access to the sea from the rocks just below the house (the water is blue-flagged for quality), where there are also several platforms with sun loungers and umbrellas.
As well as all the swimming choices and water-skiing available directly in the resort, there are several bathing clubs around Kalkan Bay where you can swim from rocky platforms. Kalkan is a major diving centre, with several operators offering dives and PADI courses. If you feel the need of a long walk with sand between your toes, the 18 km long stretch of completely unspoilt beach at Patara, among the finest in the Mediterranean, is only 17 km away. Nearer is the dramatic setting of Kaputas beach a few kilometres east of Kalkan, while Kalkan itself has a small pebble beach.
The villa is located in the village of Kalkan, beautifully set on one of the southernmost parts of the Turkish coast overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The white-sand beaches of the area are backed by mountains clad with pine and olive trees, and there are many fascinating antiquities to explore. The resort is internationally renowned for its architectural style based on an ancient Lycian city. Natural stone walls, wooden verandas and dusky pink elevations have been engineered to blend into the surrounding landscape. The abundant gardens create an oasis of green and colourful blooms. A cobbled private road winds from the top of the development to the sea at the bottom. The villa has fantastic sea and Kalkan views and the resort has the benefit of a Blue Flag awarded sea front just metres away. Internally the property is characterised by its natural stone walls, marble cast floors and fireplaces.
VILLAGE OF KALKAN
Kalkan is now a popular holiday destination, with the resort one of its best addresses. This delightful Mediterranean village-type resort, made of traditionally-built houses and a boutique hotel, clings to the hillside just across the bay from Kalkan harbour. The houses with terracotta-coloured walls and pantile roofs are set in lush gardens running down to the water's edge.
This pedestrian resort is charming, with everything required for a stylish holiday. It offers several places to eat ranging from the highly romantic restaurant above the deep waters of Kalkan Bay to informal poolside bars, bakery and café, sea front barbecue and fine dining in the Agora. There are 4 swimming pools as well as tennis courts, (one of which is floodlit), bars, restaurants, health and fitness centre, shop and other amenities, while a water taxi operates across to Kalkan harbour during daylight hours for a still wider choice of restaurants and shopping.
Private cars are not permitted within the secure, gated resort except for unloading and loading on arrival and departure, but a frequent free shuttle service operates through the resort up to the freshwater pool, tennis courts, shop, car park and helicopter pad. Since the village-resort is built on a steep hillside, there are many flights of steps making it unsuitable for the very young or less mobile.
Largely untouched by mass development, this picturesque resort lies in a lovely bay and is a charming fusion of higgledy-piggledy old town, modern hotels and white-painted houses gathered around a pretty and lively harbour. Whitewashed houses, old wooden balconies bright with bougainvillea and narrow stone-paved streets all contribute to the charm of old Kalkan village. Kalkan is famed for its wonderful and varied selection of restaurants, from the fine cuisine combined with great views to be found at Aubergine, to the restaurants higher up in the village serving traditional local dishes at very reasonable prices.
Kalkan is well-placed for excursions by bus, car or taxi to a number of classical sites such as Xanthos, Patara, Myra and Tlos, while from Kalkan or the picturesque town of Kas nearby you can also hire a gulet to explore the beautiful coast or take a cruise to Kekova with its underwater ruins, stopping en route to swim in isolated bays. Inland are high mountains and cedar forests to explore, with the Lycian Way offering numerous waymarked walks in the vicinity. There are superb wild flowers, at their best in March, April and early May.
Not suitable for small children or the less mobile (due to many steps)
Weekly laundry change and cleaning are included in the price
Insurance: Please note that, as with the majority of private villa rentals in Turkey, insurance is not included - all renters are advised to take out their own adequate travel insurance for the duration of their stay.
WHEN TO VISIT:
Early spring is a beautiful time to visit Kalkan for a relaxing peaceful holiday away from the crowds, mid-March and April being the best months to explore the Lycian cost to see the abundance of historical and archaeological sites, catch up on your reading or simply relax and watch the world go by.
The villa is shaded from the sun and is fronted by mature gardens so keeps cool in peak season heat for those who want to choose the height of the season. The air conditioning keeps the villa cool during hot peak season.
Many people say that September is the best month of the year to visit, offering relief from the constant intense heat of July and August, but still warm enough to relax in bathing suits.
October tends to bring cooler weather, but is still very pleasant, typically in the low 20s centigrade, and still good enough for eating out in the evenings.
The nearest airports are at Dalaman (c. 1 ¾ hrs. drive) and Antalya (c. 4 hrs. drive). As well as direct scheduled flights, charter flights also operate year round from the UK to Dalaman.
Airport Transfers: Transfers can be arranged from either Dalaman or Antalya by taxi or minibus. Alternatively you can rent a car at either of the airports.
It is also possible to rent a vehicle once you arrive in the resort.
