Honestly you do not need to take masses of baggage, because you really do not need much, and anything you forgot can be bought locally anyway, so don't waste money paying airlines for baggage you just do not need?

Jeep safari's are a must!

The South West Aegean and Mediterranean coast of Turkey has now become the holiday destination of choice for Europeans. This is not only because the people are so friendly, the food is so good, and because Turkey has a fantastic climate (Season March through November) but also it is very secure and safe.

We Had a great holiday and just loved the apartment!
Oz was a great help arranging all our trips!
Thank you very much for all your help.
Truly delightfull in location - quiet spot but few mins. from Kalkan centre & magnificent views from balcony. Super pools - refreshing in hot weather (October perfect) - grounds immaculate with blossoms everywhere. Apartment well equipped (large fridge/freezer, books, radio/cds, hairdryer) & spotless - bins emptied daily(take small bin liners&toilet paper). Loads info. on KalKan.Owner in regular contact beforehand giving 5* customer service.Huge choice good value restaurants. We hired a jeep (trips expensive)& spent days exploring mountains & ancient sites -roads good&locals welcoming BUT no English. Wonderfully lush with springs gushing. Beware getting v wet if walking in Saklikent Gorge! Will appeal to those wanting to both relax in picturesque Kalkan&explore walking in the steps of 2000 B.C.! A lovely welcoming country as yet unspoilt. Strongly recommend.
A pleasantly appointed apartment with delightful view. Set in a nice complex which seemed to be well maintained and clean.
The swimming pools had apparently been renovated earlier in the season and were all superb.
A previous review mentioned that the bathroom needed attention, this has been done and it is now a good shower room.
The bed was very comfortable and the sitting area and balcony well appointed. We asked for some basic food items to be in place because of our late evening arrival and this was all in place when we arrived.
The only very small criticisms we have are that a towel rail in the bathroom would be useful there is even space for a freestanding one. An extra teatowel, there was only one provided. The guest information stated that the apartment would be given a clean whilst we were there this did not happen.
However overall we were very pleased with the apartment and had a lovely holiday.
Stayed here for a delightful two weeks in the sun, went swimming every day used 2 pools and once in the sea at Indigo beach club. Both pools and sea were really warm having had the sun all year.
Apartment was just super, what a little gem! The location is really fantastic and quiet. Just behind you have the Blue Turtle which is fab for live music ideal for drinks after dinner.
Above that is Chillies great for lunch and dinner try the Adana kebab - spicy.
Great apartment lovely location and Kalkan must be the prettiest little town on the coast? Just love the place wish I was here for Xmas.
We recommend K2 for a great stay in a fine location, however from the description of K2 we had expected something 'SUPER' but this is an exaggeration with, ’TIRED’ being appropriate. Other apartments were nicely updated.
The bath is chipped with penetrating mould in the grouting, ineffective (flooding) very basic shower curtain & tricky WC bidet tap. The toaster is battered, lack of tablespoons, no oven glove and risk of hand burns. One of the cooker hob rings was out of order.
Furniture is of fair quality, although the comfy bed advertised as ‘especially made in Istanbul’ was nothing extraordinary or larger than might be expected and the sofa bed was grubby. Bedding sheets were undersized but this was fixed later in our stay.
The WiFi and air conditioning was excellent.
No sun loungers for the balcony, unless using the flat mattresses used on the pool loungers. Placing mattresses on it would require moving the heavy balcony furniture inside.
The closest pool is properly maintained and keeps the sun all day but the surrounding area becomes shady around mid-afternoon. The lounging area was tight on space when busy and it is difficult to move lounger and parasol kit to other pools due to steps.
Ozgur and his wife Ozge are attentive property managers who keep the apartment well supplied and spotlessly clean. Breakfast pastries and afternoon cake were a nice touch.
Define Tours transfer inbound had a careful driver; return driver was dangerous and scary.
Kalkan – right on your doorstep, but not noisy! Great weather and so much to see and do.
Try 'Chillies' for breakfast after visiting the Thursday market, also great for evening meals. Other restaurants include ‘Authentic’ roof terrace, sea bream at fair prices, ‘Alternatif’ for fabulous fillet steak at tiny prices, The Olive Garden top roof terrace has perhaps the most splendid views of Kalkan by night, amazing food and excellent wines.
Gulet boat trips. The gorgeous Yildiz 2 is our first choice at 70 TRY for a full day with a great lunch, also BBQ cruise under the Milky Way stars. Kartal boat for a great day private hire with friends.
Kalkan Beach Park club is just across the bay for a good day out.
Yusef the tailor opposite ‘The Olive Garden’ for handmade dresses and shirts etc. Quality ‘designer’ style handbags at very fair prices from ‘Misty May’ in narrow street by the far end of the harbour.
See you in Kalkan next year?
Just got back ,what a brilliant location, everything you need for a relaxing break.Apartment could not be faulted thanks Andrew for this, to arrive late at night to find a starter kit ,bread,butter soft drinks and even beer in the fridge was a nice touch. Oz and his lovely wife ,who dropped in every couple of days with treats from the local bakery again unexpected but appreciated. Hope all goes well for the arrival of their second child. Choice of restaurants amazing,Coriander,Old Trading House, Olive Garden really good,if you want away from chicken & steak try the pizzas at Kaptans just up behind,Chillies as well . Avoid the NAR unless you want half cooked chicken.
Looking forward to possibly returning next year
Booked and stayed for a month, great location but very tired apartment, many others to choose from in the Med apartments complex ideal location, 1st visit to Kalkan and we have learnt a lesson on prices and standards. WiFi was not in apartment when we arrived but stated in description, installed 2 days later so disruption to our stay. Sun loungers and mattresses broken on arrival had to wait for them to be replaced more disruption. Bed really badly stained on both sides also mattress protector, protector was replaced with new one, all these things should have been done before our arrival as owner gave it a great write up with many untruths, we were very disappointed.
We were invited to have a look at many other apartments which were beautiful compared to what we had, also the rental cost was above these others which offered far more comforts and cared for interiors.
Sorry to say that although the apartment is in a superb location it lacks appeal and is grossly over priced and we would defiantly not return to this apartment as we now know there are many more of a higher standard with a reasonable rental prices.
I have many true pictures but am unable to add to review.
Kalkan is a historic town situated on Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Turquoise Coast, once a sleepy fishing village, Kalkan today is quietly sophisticated, yet is still extremely picture postcard pretty! With a multitude of upmarket restaurants with rooftop views over the small harbour and 'Snake & Mouse Islands' it has become known as 'The Beverly Hills of the Eastern Mediterranean'. Kalkan sits under the spectacular backdrop of the Taurus mountains and gazes out to sea over the bay to the endless shimmering turquoise waters of the Eastern Mediterranean.
KALKAN WHERE THE STARS ARE NEAREST!
Quoted in the Travel pages of the SUNDAY TIMES as having one of the ''10 BEST VIEWS IN THE WORLD''.
Don't forget in winter you can go skiing not too far from Kalkan.
Other Activities: super restaurants, jeep safari's, sunbathing, historic sites, paragliding, & lots more!
Ski: Did you know that when you visit Kalkan in winter months you can go 'Snow Skiing' only 90mins drive away @
Eren Mountain Ski Centre. Equipment rental available - boots, skis, snowboads etc! The center has T-Bar lifts, and you can get hot wine, meals, and even stay for a night !! Not quite Zermatt but makes for a bit of fun for a couple of days. Probably treat it as 24hrs out of Kalkan and if you go we will not charge you for the time you are away from base camp as it were.! Can't say better than that.?
