Why Elaine Ketley chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We visited Kalkan looking for an investment property and on the second day feel in love Kalkan and Poppy Villa which had been built that year. We walked throught the front door to 3 blues, the sky, the sea and the infinity pool and that was it. We have never looked back and have been letting the property ever since. We are delighted to say that we have let the villa every year for the whole season and we take great pride in the villa and sharing it with our guests. We are very particular about ours holidays and we adopt our high standards with Poppy Villa. We have not had a dissappointed customer and indeed now have many repeat customers that have visited the villa time and time again. Since purchasing Poppy we now rent the villa adjacent to ours which is Apricot

What makes this villa unique

When we first purchased Poppy we opened the door to see the Deep Blue of the pool, the sea and the sky, a moment we have never forgotten, and one that every customer sees when they rental Poppy. www.poppyvillakalkan.com

Avery well equipped and well located villa with an excellent pool. Ideal for a restful holiday. The owners were very happy to answer our questions and they, and the villa staff, provided a first class service. Very good value and we recommend it highly.

Execellent villa, everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Great villa, lovely pool, close to food shops, restaurants and beaches. Easy to spend a day around the pool with a BBQ in the evening. Very helpful owner and good communication meant that the holiday ran smoothly.

Enjoyed boat and canoe trips. Daughter did a diving coarse from harbour.

Poppy Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th stay at poppy is already booked, a villa we can thoroughly recommend. The villa is very well maintained and equipped with everything you could wish for. Stunning views, a lovely pool where we enjoy late night swims when the pool is beautifully lit and the water warm. Outside sun loungers, umbrellas and BBQ ensure we have everything we need. The villa is in a lovely location close to the town and harbour near lovely restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. First class service by Elaine & Lorraine who arrange our transfers and answer any questions we may have. We enjoy our walk to and from the villa, Kalkan is hilly but taxis are cheap and plentiful for those evenings when we overindulge! Everything about holidaying here is wonderful and relaxing. Kalkan is beautiful, we adore the locals and the laid back atmosphere. This has been our secret destination that we're sharing with you, so you too can indulge.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing villa. Very spacious, clean and extremely well equipped. Air conditioning a godsend as was the water fountain - cold water always readily available!! Close to Kalkan town centre but always cheap cabs available if you don't want a walk back up the hill - we never bothered - it was one way of using up a few calories after dining in one of the numerous restaurants down by the harbour. Didn't have one bad meal in two weeks. Tom (pool man - daily visit) and Maria (cleaned the villa midway through our stay) were friendly but not at all intrusive. Pool is a great size and very clean. Couldn't fault anything. We enjoyed ourselves so much have just booked for 2015!

A fine villa, very close to Kalkan.

  • 5 of 5

Close to the town and harbour, a conveniently positioned detached villa presented in as new order, with lovely infinity style pool.

Book this villa, you will not be disappointed. It, the town, the harbour, the weather, the cuisine, the locals, in fact, everything contributed to a wonderful family holiday.

A quick note about the owners: Elaine and Lorraine made it all so easy for us, plenty of helpful hints and recommendations, most unlike other owners we have hired from in the past. Lovely people.

Book it!!

Poppy Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Kalkan many times and this is one of the best villas we have stayed in. The villa was clean on arrival , staff finishing off when we arrived, but everything was clean, tidy and outside space excellent.

I must say the outside area is very nice - pool excellent, with a shallow end which was a must for us with a youngster, and all the shades and umbrellas in good condition. View is great from the villa and we were not overlooked.

The villa itself is very comfortable - nice kitchen with mod cons , good beds and the shutters on the windows helped with making sure our son didn't get out of bed too early !

We enjoyed the use of the books and games - Monopoly played many an evening after a meal out in the village.

The walk/stroll into the village was fine - Kalkan is hilly, but as transport/taxis are cheap and plentiful not an issue for us.

The village is still as lovely as ever and we just hope it remains so. Restaurants a plenty and our favourites were The Alternatif, and The Olive Garden. There are many places to visit - Patara beach, Tlos, Letoon, Saklikent Gorge - all excellent and we had a great time going to the Gorge on a jeep safari - included in the trip was a mud bath near to the gorge, which was amazing .

I would recommend this villa to family and friends - we wanted to book again this year but the summer weeks had already gone !

Poppy Villa is situated in the olive groves overlooking the picturesque, unspoilt town of Kalkan with its fine harbour, marina and myriad of tiny streets, featuring traditional carpet shops, antique shops, bazaars, restaurants and roof-top bars. The beauty of Poppy Villa is that everything is in close walking distance.

Decide which of the 140 Restaurants to visit in Kalkan. After dinner wonder through the cobble streets which house an array of shopping opportunities or head for the beautiful harbour. Whatever you do Poppy Villa is the perfect place to stay in Luxury.

A boat trip from the harbour around Kalkan Bay is a must on your holiday. Take the whole day to enjoy Kalkan from the water, stop at the Turquoise Blue Bays, try some fishing from the Boat, take in the Beautiful Sunshine and enjoy some snokelling prior to your lunch served by the Captain, all of which has been freshly prepared and cooked on the boat. A glass of chilled white wine or a beer, make lunch slip down nicely, then its off to another cove for a swim or snooze. We can organise these trips for you. Just simply ask

Hire a car and discover the wonders of the beautiful coast.

Saklikent Gorge. Beyond Tlos, Saklikent is a spectacular gorge cut into the Akdaglar mountains. 18 km long, the sides are so deep and steep that no sun penetrates, so the water always remains icy cold. Access to the start of the gorge is along a wooden boardwalk suspended above the water, then after crossing the river, it is fairly straightforward to walk

Other Activities: jet skiing
