Arrived to a beautiful, clean and very well equipped villa. Being a big fan of all-inclusive holidays we were not too sure how we were going to like it but we loved it. No rush to put a towel down in the morning! The kitchen had every utensil known to man kind, the dishwasher is a god send, I've never seen such clean dishes. The pool was a bit cold towards the end of our holiday (October) and I was disappointed that I couldn't touch the floor but plenty of floats are provided. The bathrooms are beautiful and the shower was very powerful and hot, a major plus for me is having a good shower after a day in the sun. Both bedrooms are very comfortable, although the mattress in the double room did dip a little. The roof seating area is very comfortable with ample chairs, the views are wonderful, it was a pleasure to sit there in such a beautiful tranquil setting and not to have to listen to thumping music. The villas all around were occupied but you wouldn't know it, the villa offers all the privacy you require. The town is a 10 minute walk away, but it's all down hill, we did walk back most nights which was hard work back up the hills, but after eating it was a welcome walk, the restaurants in the town are lovely, too many to mention here but my favourite bar was Kleo's, the cocktails were amazing. The grounds are beautifully maintained with the most stunning colour flowers. Jenny and Dick kept us well informed of everything, they arranged for our taxi pick up to and from the airport, with was brilliant, the taxi driver was just lovely and talked us through the areas on the way to the villa. The biggest plus for me was having a washing machine, sad I know! But I had no washing or ironing to come home too, just bliss! Would I recommend this villa? Without a shadow of doubt - I've been 100% converted to a villa holiday. I look forward to our stay in 2015, I can't wait to return, it was the most relaxing holiday we've ever had.

Everything you need, fully recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a few places in Kalkan and we would certainly stay here again. It has absolutely everything you need, lovely pool area with the sun all day, great terrace with fantastic views, comfy seating and a BBQ (it even had charcoal supplied). The kitchen has everything you could ever use to cook with, and the wifi is good. We ordered some more drinking water (very cheap), and it arrived within minutes. So lovely and peaceful. Just a 10 minute walk down to the harbour, maybe 15 minutes back but there are plant of taxi's if you have heavy shopping. Would thoroughly recommend it, we were 2 but 4 would be equally comfortable. Thank you Dick and Jenny ( and Sharon who looks after you in Kalkan).

First class all round...

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week stay in this great property.

First off let me say that dealing with Dick and Jenny was a breeze, we found them very accommodating and answered all our questions in a very timely manner. We also found their property managers "on the ground " to be very helpful and lovely people too, nothing was too much trouble , and Sharon has a wealth of advice if you haven't visited before..

The property itself is fabulous, tons of outside space to use, a great pool and very private too...The washing machine was a very helpful addition and very easy to use..The roof top terrace gives great views over Kalkan and a great place for a few drinks in the evening... As the Villa is on the hill we used to walk down and get a taxi back most days. The taxi will cost around £2 so we found the location suited us.

Kalkan is beautiful and this villa would be a great choice for those considering a visit.

Owner's Response: Hi Grant and Michelle, Thank you for a great review. We will forward it to our property managers. Although the last part of the walk back goes upward the "hill" is far lower than many other locations in Kalkan. As you mentioned the taxi is very cheap and a good alternative. Thanks again, Jenny and Dick.

Fabulous stay in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Caretta for 12 days in August. The villa is in a great location just a 10 minute walk from the centre of Kalkan with all of it's restaurants and shops, the harbour and access to the beach clubs. The villa is very comfortable and perfectly clean and well maintained. The pool area is a fantastic sun trap and good sunbeds and parasols are there to provide comfortable sunbathing. The view from the roof terrace is just beautiful and we spent many evenings enjoying a glass of wine looking over the harbour and the bay.

We are a reasonably fit family and we did walk from the town back up to the villa a few times but bearing in mind the heat, we also used taxis many times. There are always loads of taxis waiting and it only cost £2.50 for the 4 of us each time.

Will definitely consider returning to Kalkan and Villa Caretta would be the first choice for accommodation.

Many thanks Dick and Jenny.

We spent great holidays at the lovely Villa Caretta. It is well located and well equiped. You can walk to the nice village of Kalkan with a lot of bars and restaurants. We loved the cool pool and the view of the rooftop terrace,specially in the evening with all the lights at the harbour and the bay. There are a lot of things to do. But sometimes we enjoyed only staying at the villa and at Kalkan. We are sure that we will return soon. Dick and Jenny are very, very hospitable, taking care of their guests!

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.
