Stunning complex, gorgeous apartment. Love it!
What an absolutely beautiful place to stay. The apartment is stunning and has every facility you could need, the views are simply breathtaking. The apartment overlooks the pool and is central on the small and well maintained complex. Its great for children and extremely safe. A stay in this luxury apartment is without doubt a treat like no other. We are well travelled and think Kalkan is the most gorgeous place to visit, we're totally hooked it caters for everyone and is cosmopolitan and friendly all in one. Once Kalkan gets in your blood you'll find anywhere else pales in comparison. The owners, Wendy and Steve are so helpful, booking transfers and have a wealth of knowledge about kalkan and it's many features nothing is too much trouble for them. See you in 2017!
