About the property

Villa in Kalkan, Turkey - Peaceful Location 15 Minutes Downhill Walk To Beautiful And Vibrant Harbour Town With Restaurants

Villa Olive has panoramic views overlooking Kalkan and Kalamar bay. The villa is on a large plot surrounded by stone walled gardens and terraces. There is a lower garden which is secluded where guests can relax away from the pool in the hammock under the large olive tree. There are fig, lemon and orange trees as well as palm trees and masses of colourful bougainvillea. There are plenty of comfortable loungers by the pool and a dining area beneath a pergola to give shade for those alfresco meals, the barbecue is also in this area. The swimming pool is approximately 43 m2 and is particularly popular with our guests. We have 3 balconies, 2 on the top floor, one of which is en suite and the other with comfy sofas for a quiet afternoon read or evening drink while watching the sunset over the hill. It is fully furnished to a high standard with tiled floors and quality fittings and it has air conditioning and central heating to radiators for the low season. The bedrooms are spacious as is the lounge area and a new kitchen has been fitted this year. There is off street parking should you wish to hire a car.

About Neil Thomas

Barbara and Neil bought Villa Olive in 2005 from a builder who had intended to live in the property. Bizzarely this was the first time we had been to Turkey and Kalkan had been recommended to us. We spent a week up and down the coast and settled for this Villa after a remarkably short time - Neil has taken a year to buy a car but bought the villa in only 6 days! We recently retired so plan to spend a bit more time in Turkey.

We rent out the villa as this helps with the running costs and also for others to enjoy the spacious villa, large swimming pool and lovely views. Our children visit regularly with groups of friends to rest and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Neil Thomas purchased this villa in 2005

Why Neil Thomas chose Kalkan

Kalkan was a fishing village with steep mountains as a backdrop. The villas have lovely views of the bay and building is likely to be limited because of the terrain. Kalkan is an hour and a half from Dalaman Airport but this means that it has stayed unspoilt - we have flown into Antalya and taken the mountain route to Kalkan which is spectacular or driven round the coast which is amazing. The season is longer than most people realise as the sun is really warm until November and the spring comes early to Kalkan.

We love the restaurants in Kalkan. You eat on the terrace roofs looking out over the harbour and the bay with brightly coloured bougainvillea The food is superb and reasonably priced and the Turkish people speak excellent English and are so friendly.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Olive is a large villa which can accommodate 10 people with ease as the rooms are large and airy and there are many places to get away from each other if you need some peace and quiet. There are 2 roof terraces with furniture and a bottom garden with a hammock under an olive tree surrounded by frangipane and bougainvillia. The swimming pool is a big feature as it is very large for a private villa and you are not overlooked by other holidaymakers. Those guests who like to barbecue can enjoy dining outside by the pool.

We also have an excellent mangement company run by Elena & Sedat. We have had countless emails from our guests who have enjoyed their holiday and have praised them for their unfailing courtesy and efficiency. They are brilliant and a huge asset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, we were absolutely delighted with your lovely villa which is the best we have stayed in by far. The thought that has gone into it is amazing.

The resort of Kalkan is lovely - as I said we have only ever been to Hisonaru and Olu Deniz but Kalkan beats it by far.

I have emailed Elena and Sadat today as well to thank them for the 100% attention and help. You have selected excellent managers - we only met Sadat and I have to say he was outstanding.

Thanks again, Barbara. We hope to visit your villa again.


We had a fabulous time and your villa was perfect. a great view and had everything one could have asked for. Thank you

Perfect family villa - 5 stars !

  • 5 of 5

Just home from a family holiday in Villa Olive and can't wait to go back ! Luxury villa: beautifully furnished, cool, spacious with accommodation over three floors. The pool is amazing: a winner with the whole family.

Amazing views from the balconies and terraces with very well kept gardens on a large plot. Even with a house full there is a quiet space for everyone ! Could not recommend more highly.

Excellent customer service right from ease of booking, pre departure information, transfers, key handover and a lovely welcome pack. Could not be easier or more relaxing - we'll be booking again soon.

A piece of paradise! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Olive - not that we wanted to return at all! The villa was better than the description - plenty of living space and outside seating areas. The bedroom and bathroom layout easily sleeps 10. The 4 main bedrooms are a really good size all with own bathrooms. Bed 10 is ground floor, much smaller and no en-suite. The Villa was spotlessly clean.

It is about a 15min walk down into town - def need a taxi back. For those who do not know Kalkan the town is split below and above the main road from Dalaman/Antalya and this villa is situated above the main road so people may prefer to get a taxi into town esp. if you have small children. This is really easy - just call one of the taxi numbers on the fridge - taxis reliable and cheap (c 12 lira per taxi).

The pool and grounds are attended every day and the guys bring you fresh bread every day - they ask you how many loaves you want on the day you arrive and they are hanging on the chair by the back door when you get up 😄

Same with the water for the cooler - just phone the number on the fridge and the guy arrives to replace it almost instantly!!

The pool is big and deep but the kids (aged 15,12,8,6 & 3) absolutely loved it. From what we could see the pools at most other villas were more like plunge pools rather than a full swimming pool.

We visited the Gorge Saklikent which was a great day out and Patara beach - kids loved the waves. We had cars so did all this independently but there are lots places to book organised trips in town. An absolute must is a boat trip with Anil Boat (see facebook page) which we would highly recommend. Would suggest booking in advance - the lunch provided in unbelievable. The are several beach clubs which are a great day out too- our favourite is Kalamar Bay - they will pick you up and drop you off free of charge. Great watersports team on hand and lunch was good. Plenty of shaded areas.

We were last in Kalkan two years ago and the town is as lovely as it was then with lots of great restaurants all of which do very similar menus. Our favourites were Sade (it's small so book in advance), Gourmet and Doy Doy but we ate out every night and didn't have a bad meal. Average price with drinks (lots)and two courses for the 9 of us was between £110-£150 which was amazing value. Most are roof top or harbour view so getting out to eat at sunset is good.

The owners and local agent were fantastic throughout.

Wonderful Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a very quiet area within walking distance of Kalkan for restaurants, bars and shops. The villa was lovely and spacious with ensuite bathrooms to all bedrooms and a nice big kitchen/living area. The pool and outside seating areas were great and there were always areas in the sun or shade throughout the day with stunning views down to the sea/town and up to the mountains behind. Very relaxing, would highly recommend!

An amazing relaxing spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have returned to Villa Olive in Kalkan. We have been in a larger party but also as a couple. The outside sun terraces were perfect for any time of day. Moving from the pool side to have a laze in the hammock then drinks on the top floor terrace suited us very well. The villa is very well equipped and furnished brilliantly. We also loved the new canopy which had been added last year so lunch and breakfasts were shaded. We will be back and in the meantime I'll be watching the film you sent me prior to my booking next year.

Special interest holidays:

We have a young husband and wife team who will look after you during your stay. They can arrange transfers from the airport and will meet you at the villa on your arrival to settle you in. They can book any excursions/activities you may require. e.g chartering a boat, scuba diving etc. and are available to deal with any problems/queries that you may have.

The river gorge at Salikent is a 20 km canyon. It is a hot spot for outdoor activities including rafting, although it also offers the relaxing choice of lazing around on suspended platforms above the Xanthos river eating freshly caught fish and drinking local beverages!

Trekking is a popular way to explore the area and there are many routes to choose from including the more challenging peninsula paths and the Lycian Way.


Kalkan has a pebbly blue flag status beach There are many beach clubs which often provide free transport. The platforms are carved out of the rock next to the sea to catch the breeze and food and drinks are readily available. Patara beach is a 15 minute drive/ 30 minute dolmus but it has 8 miles of largely deserted sand apart from 1 cafe with beds and umbrellas. With a backdrop of well preserved roman ruins it is a great day out. There are trout farms, roman ruins and gorge experiences inland.


Dalaman Airport, approximately 1.5 hours away.

Antalya Airport, approximately 2.5 hours away.

Transfer from Dalaman for 10 people is approx £195 return.

Car can be hired in Kalkan but the public transport/taxis/trip organiser companies are very good and reasonable.


Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and many ancient sites are close, including Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Tlos and Patara. Kalkan has an excellent local diving centre providing half day trips to some of the oldest submerged ruins in the Mediterranean and sea caverns. Paragliding is available with many reputable companies offering good value trips and the chance to see the area.

Further Details:

Kalkan has over 200 restaurants with many tucked away from view on roof terraces and down cobbled streets. The quality of food is high and caters for the more cosmopolitan clientele that Kalkan attracts and as a bonus everyone speaks excellent English and will accept payment in sterling.The nightlife comprises mainly of restaurants and bars, although there is a few late night live music venues. The lovely shops along the streets are open until at least midnight, and you can browse freely without pressure to buy.

There are plenty of supermarkets and the pharmacies speak good English and are very helpful.
