Villa in Kalkan, Turkey - Peaceful Location 15/20 Minutes Walk To Village
We are a married couple with 2 grown up daughters. As a family we have been visiting Kalkan for many years. We spend as much time as possible in our Turkish home and have made many wonderful friends in this beautiful village.
Donna purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Donna chose Kalkan
Having visited many countries and several destinations in Turkey, this beautiful village is the only place we chose to return to. Wonderful scenery, fabulous food and the genuine hospitality of the local people is what makes it home from home.
What makes this Villa unique
Our main reason for buying Villa Palm was the fantastic views from every level of the property. Situated slightly on the hillside, the villa attracts a gentle breeze, very welcome in the height of summer. The position of the villa allows the sun to shine on the property from early morning until late evening although we are fortunate that the villa benefits from a large covered veranda allowing for shade, essential when eating al fresco in the summer months. There are several outside seating areas from a fully furnished roof terrace at the top of the property to soft seating on the ground floor terrace. You will always find your own little quiet corner in Villa Palm.

BeauVilla with stunning views
This was our 3rd visit to Villa Palm, and after last year we didn’t think it could get any better, but we were surprised, it has. The lovely new kitchen added that bit extra and the new steps to the pool were a good touch. In the villa, it’s like being at home, with the bonus of stunning views, lovely pool area and a great town.
Donna the owner certainly helps make the holiday very special, making sure every little detail is covered, from the initial booking to actually going on the holiday.
This review could have been shorter, by saying we have booked again for next year, and this says everything you need to know, but I felt I needed to explain.
Chris & Deb, so pleased you had another great holiday in Villa Palm and appreciated the changes we made this year. You are very valued guests and it will be our pleasure to welcome you back again next year.

Fabulous holiday - Simply the best!
Having stayed in this property three times now I am pleased to say that I am yet to be disappointed. Quite honestly I doubt that I ever will be. The marriage of the beautiful Turkish Coastal village of Kalkan and the fabulous Villa Palm only means one thing and that is a holiday to remember for all the right reasons. Well that is of course as long as you don’t want a head banging all night clubbing holiday that is. Perhaps I would have wanted that 40 years ago haha!.
Hi Gilbert & Co,
So pleased you had another great holiday in Villa Palm. You are the perfect guests, love to have you back anytime.

Perfect Kalkan Villa
Our second time at Villa Palm. It was fabulous last year and this year was even better. A lovely new kitchen and lots of lovely little extra touches to ensure we felt even more at home.
Donna, the villa owner, makes sure nothing is left to chance and attention to detail is obvious. From the large water cooler to providing beach towels to save you room in your case, nothing is too much trouble. Lovely comfy couches on every level with loads of sunny and shaded areas.
A great location, lovely and quiet and only a 10-15 minute walk into town. We now know to just get a taxi back, as the hill is a killer in the heat, but at £2-3 for each journey, why wouldn’t you?
We love Kalkan and couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else now! Thanks Donna for the extra help and advice you gave while we were there.
A blissful week
The property was clean, very well-equipped and very comfortable. A joy all round.
Amazing Villa in Beautiful Place
The villa owner Donna was in contact immediately we booked and is available by email for any questions you may have and this helps plan your holiday. This is our 2nd stay at this villa and it is spotless. The beds are changed twice during your 2 week stay and the villa totally cleaned. The WiFi is excellent and the pool is definitely larger than average. The villa has three large bedrooms all ensuite with air conditioning in each room as well as the lounge. The kitchen has completely been refurbished since our last visit 3 years ago and the gas barbecue was also new. This villa is very well looked after and is definitely home from home. The views are better than the photographs show and you have the view from all 3 floors. Kalkan is a beautiful place and has many excellent restaurants where you can eat on the rooftops under the stars. I would recommend anyone who visiting Turkey to stay here and definitely in Villa Palm. I must mention the boat trips, we went twice and it is well worth £20 each for a full day cruising round 5 different bays and a fantastic lunch onboard. Thanks for an amazing holiday Donna and we will definitely be coming back to Kalkan for 3rd visit and Villa Palm. I 100% recommend this villa to anyone visiting Kalkan.
Thank you for your lovely review of Villa Palm, so pleased you had another great holiday in Kalkan.
Look forward to welcoming you and your family back another time to our Turkish home.

Special interest holidays:
Boat trips can be arranged locally. A day at sea with a wonderful BBQ lunch and all for only £20 per person! Or you can visit one of the local beach clubs which offer private bathing platforms and steps into the sea, usually a small fee is payable.
Villa Palm is about a 20 mins stroll to the village. The amazing beach at Patara is approx a 20 mins drive away, stunning Kaputas Beach only a 5 mins drive. Local buses are available to both.
Dalaman airport is an approx 1.5 hours drive. Antalya Airport approx 3 hours. Transfers from airport in air-conditioned car or minibus and car hire can be arranged.
Kalkan is situated on the Turquoise coast between the towns of Fethiye and Kas. Nestled in a bay at the foot of the Taurus Mountains the area affords spectacular sea and mountain views. There are plenty of areas of historical and geographical interest within a short driving distance. Patara, Xanthos, Tlos and Myra, the river gorge at Saklikent and the famous beach of Olu Deniz are all less than 1 hour from Kalkan.
During the day Kalkan is a quiet sleepy village. You can wander round the maze of cobbled streets, stop at a cafe for coffee, apple tea or a cold Efes beer and just watch the world go by. At night Kalkan comes alive. It has over 120 restaurants serving a wide variety of choices with many offering roof terraces where you can dine under the stars and watch the sun set over the sea. After dinner you can relax in one of the music bars, stroll along the harbour or visit many of the quaint shops which stay open until very late. Kalkan has several banks (with ATM machines), post office, doctors surgery, pharmacies, supermarkets and the usual array of shops selling jewellery, shoes/handbags, ceramics, paintings and carpets. Although it is without a doubt, the people of Kalkan who make this a very special place and have friends returning year after year.
