Villa Aurelia in Kisla is one of the area’s finest properties, located directly on the sea front.
It’s one thing being on the “front row” in Kalkan, naturally the views are magnificent, but to have your own private sea access from platforms adjacent to the Mahal Beach Club makes Villa Aurelia a perfect choice. Villa Aurelia and the nearby Villa Ayşe are imposing properties – two of three – in this great location. The outdoor terraces and pool take full advantage of the view. However, the icing on the cake has to be the private sea access; steps lead down from the garden, across a track and then further steps cut into the cliff side and shaded by olive trees lead down to sunbathing platforms set into the rocks; at sea level a decked platform is furnished with sun beds, sun shades and scatter cushions and has steps into the sea. For the energetic there is a kayak.
This is Mediterranean living at its best. The amply furnished shady terrace with its centrepiece of a huge date palm, is the perfect place for summer living with cushion filled rattan seating and a dining table. It’s just steps to the mosaic tiled infinity pool with cascading overflow, decked surround with sunbeds and a few steps descend from the pool to an attractive lawn which is dotted with sun beds and a hanging chair. As if that were not enough, separate steps lead down from the pool terrace to the lower ground level. These pass the utility and caretaker’s room and onto another lawn with elegant garden furniture in which to relax and, you guessed it – enjoy those fabulous views!
There are breath-taking views from virtually everywhere in and out of the house; you’ll find yourself gazing out across the deep blue sea, and as the sun sets, the show doesn’t stop and your gaze will be drawn in the other direction as the lights from Kalkan harbour are magical to look at. The interior of the house is very comfortable with rich dark wood and features two magnificent master bedrooms both with access to the vast upper terrace. A small secluded shady courtyard provides a peaceful retreat to retire to with a good book.
The villa is a located directly next the Mahal Beach Club with its renowned waterside restaurant. Villa Ayşe is the twin to Villa Aurelia and is in close proximity and also offers private bathing platforms. Perfect for two separate families holidaying together.
Getting to and from the centre of Kalkan couldn’t be easier – water-taxis run from Hotel Villa Mahal during the day; it’s a short ten-minute drive or taxi ride.
