About Anna Valentine

My husband Simon and I live in Stockport, England with our two children. I am a scientist in a Pharmaceutical company whilst Simon is an IT/risk consultant.

Anna Valentine purchased this villa in 2010

Why Anna Valentine chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We bought Villa Zinnia in 2010 after several holidays in Kalkan with our children. We kept trying out new places in Europe but nothing even compared to Kalkans beautiful town with its narrow, flower lined streets, ultra friendly locals and in particular its amazing, high quality and plentiful restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with Villa Zinnia primarily for its gorgeous pool and gardens overlooking olive groves and also being in a great location being not far from town but near some lovely restaurants. The villa is beautiful inside with everything you need for entertainment, cooking and a good nights sleep, whilst outside we have built a beautiful covered Ottoman seat for chilling with a book or G&T in the shade.

Amazing Family Villa and Pool

  • 5 of 5

As one who doesn’t normally write reviews, even though I know I should, I am now writing a review of our fantastic stay in Villa Zinnia, Kalkan, Turkey in August this Year.

What can I say of the whole thing other than it was a fantastic, stress free experience from the start to the end.

Booking the Villa through the owner Anna was a breeze, she was very helpful even though we needed longer than normal and slightly awkward dates. Everything was spelled out to us and several helpful documents were sent to us giving us details of both the Villa and the surrounding area, including surrounding restaurants, things to do.

Travel was arranged be Anna for the transfer from Dalaman Airport to the Villa and this was fantastic, in an air conditioned luxury minibus, which also included bottled water.

Arriving at the Villa late at night didn’t give us the appreciation of what a great place it was as we were tired and just need to rest/sleep. Upon arrival though we became aware of a great welcome package left for us so that we would not need any essentials which was a very thoughtful gesture.

The next morning though we became aware of what a great Villa we were staying at – the views, the rooms and the pool were amazing. The Villa itself was amazing, a great fully equipped modern kitchen/dining room, a comfortable lounge area and three well equipped bathrooms (one on-suite).

The three bedrooms were of a good size, two with large beds and one with two single beds and can I say that the beds were fantastic.

The Villa had air-conditioning throughout which was a must for Turkey in August.

Now I’m a big believer that things can go wrong but it’s the things in place to sort them out that is the most important thing. Well it did as one of the air-con units broke but we contacted the emergency number that was part of the welcome pack and the chaps attended that morning and fixed it straight away.

We had an amazing time in the day relaxing by the great pool and using the Ottoman in the rear garden. At night we walked out to several restaurants close by and had some fabulous food and drink. All of them were great but we liked the Brothers, Aqua, Porcini and Yelken that were within walking distance. We also loved Corriander Restaurant in Kalkan were we had several breakfasts and evening meals.

There is a great little store across the road run by the family that owns Porcini – Deniz & Family which sells everything that you will realistically need and if they don’t they

A wonderful stay at this lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

A very rare five-star review from me for Anna's lovely Villa Zinnia, the perfect choice for a stay in Kalkan. It's conveniently located on the 'Kalamar Road' just behind the Porcini restaurant, a 15-minute walk downhill to the centre of town.

The villa itself is perfect for a relaxing holiday as it is very private - the mature garden shields it from neighbouring properties - and is well-equipped with a great kitchen, satellite TV (no UK channels, though, but several English-language ones such as BBC World, BBC Entertainment and CNN), dishwasher, washing machine, DVD player, wi-fi (of the flaky Turkish kind!) and very effective aircon in all rooms.

The pool, although small, is perfect for cooling off and there is plenty of room on the pool surround for several sunbeds - the ones provided are some of the most comfortable I've known. If you like proper swimming, as I do, the nearby Hotel Elixir has a huge pool and is very happy for you to use it as long as you buy a drink or two. We also visited the gorgeous Regency Hotel, a short walk away, several times.

The local area has several restaurants including the excellent The Brothers, Cafe Aqua and (the over-rated) Cafe Vita and there is a general store just opposite which belongs to the family that owns Porcini - Deniz, his parents and their (to date) four dogs are lovely neighbours. Porcini has TV sports channels where you can watch Premier League matches - and the food's excellent too.

The firm that manages the villa is very efficient - an issue we had with the door lock was fixed within minutes.

All in all, a perfect stay in this gorgeous villa. We'll be back!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Zinnia and can honestly say we had a fantastic holiday. Anna the owner answered my many questions, arranged airport transfers and provided a welcome pack on our arrival which was a very nice touch! The management company keep the villa very clean and tidy. They come in once a week to change sheets and do a very thorough clean along with daily pool care and tidying the outside area.

There were 5 of us staying at the villa, 2 adults and 3 children. it offered everything we required for our holiday and more. I have to say that on the really hot afternoons the Play Station for the kids was a real bonus.

This was our 5th year in Kalkan, the previous 4 we spent in a villa higher up on the mountain which meant taxi's everywhere. However this year on the evenings that we wanted to go into town to eat it was a very easy walk in but being lazy we tended to get a taxi back. On the evenings we didn't go into town, there are some nice restaurants very close to the villa.

The little family run shop just across the road was an absolute godsend and sold nearly everything you could require. If it didn't they would either go themselves to get what you wanted or take you to get it. They also own the restaurant that's literally at the end of the path from the villa and also the cocktail bar that is just above the shop (we spent several great evenings in here being entertained by Denizas).

I would highly recommend Villa Zinnia to anyone looking for a great family holiday. We will certainly return if Anna will have us!

Villa Zinnia

  • 5 of 5

Villa Zinnia was perfect for our stay in Kalkan. It was only a short walk into the main town and had everything we needed to make our holiday a home from home. The pool area was private and kept very clean and we would definitely return here for another holiday in the future.

Garden with a tropical feel

  • 5 of 5

Villa Zinnia is in a lovely private spot, completely unseen from the road ,the photos of the garden do not do it justice , it is like a little tropical paradise , with lush vegetation and flowering plants and backing on to an olive grove The garden and pool area are maintained daily by very friendly unobtrusive staff.

The villa itself has everything you need for a holiday ...good air con , comfy beds etc. There is a little supermarket across the road for supplies and the harbour is about a 15 min downhill walk , where you are spoilt for choice of restaurants, our favourites were Moussaka , Korsan, The Small House and Adams Place .

Great holiday in a villa that felt like our own (I wish it was !!)

Kalkan Villa Zinnia

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful Villa in a fantastic location with amazing views over Kalkan. The interior is modern spacious with everything you could wish for. The pool area is fantastic, with a great pool plenty of shaded areas to sit and relax. Its not overlooked which is rare in Kalkan, there's plenty of quality sunbeds and furniture all kept in top condition by the maintenance company. Anna the owner was brilliant arranged the transfers and was extremely helpful. Kalkan is beautiful with its roof top restaurants, bars and friendly people. There's a small beach which clean and the waters are crystal clear. The local beach clubs are great offing good value for money. The only down side is the hills which can be steep and rather over bearing in the August heat. Overall we loved Kalkan and will be back next year.
