Yavuz Evi is a stone built property is located in the Kördere area of Kalkan, up the hill but less than a 10 minute drive from the centre of Kalkan. Kördere is rural with scattered villas and farmhouses set in abundant olive groves in the foothills of the Taurus mountains. The area is quiet and peaceful; it feels very much more spacious than the coastal locations and there are spectacular panoramic sea and mountain views and of course, it is the perfect setting for watching the spectacular sunset with a glass of something! There’s always a cool mountain breeze which makes alfresco living very comfortable.
Yavuz Evi has recently undergone a transformation and features two separate buildings, Yavuz Main House and Yavuz Guest House, each has its’ own terraces and swimming pool, this arrangement is perfect for multi-generational families or friends.
Yavuz Main House, at the higher level is a traditionally styled modern built farmhouse. The pretty pale stone is complemented by the dark wood of the Ottoman style balconies. The house is surrounded by massive sandstone terraces where there is a delightful swimming pool, sunbeds, shades and a huge shaded day bed looking out over the slopes with their olive trees towards the spectacular Kalkan Bay. The view is truly amazing. The interior of this imposing and substantial stone house is open and spacious, thick stone walls keep it cool. Any kitchen tasks will invite plenty of company as there are wide divans, made for lounging with a strong Turkish Coffee in hand. The upper level gallery looks down to the lower floor.
The Yavuz Guest House has been newly built in the lower level of the garden – it has a completely independent entrance but with steps up to the Yavuz Main House terrace. The building style echoes that of Yavuz Main House with pale honey coloured stone but it has a much more contemporary feel, it’s very light and bright. Huge glass door open onto the terrace with mosaic tiled private pool and there are once again, fantastic views to Kalkan Bay. Turn around and the huge Taurus Mountains are just as spectacular.
Using both Yavuz Main House and Yavuz Guest House and with the addition of 2 extra beds up to 10 guests can be accommodated. Early and later in the season, to suit the needs of smaller parties, Yavuz Main House and Yavuz Guest House are available as independent units and would suit couples enjoying a spacious environment.
