Beautiful property with authenticity
My family and I had a great stay at Villa Terra Mare. It is located Kalamar Bay side of Kalkan so is a short taxi drive away from the main town and costs 20lira. The roof top bar has great views across the bay and we made use of watching the sunset here in the evening. Every bedroom was large and spacious and there were lots of different areas to the villa which meant you could also get some alone time if you wanted. The one point I would say let the villa down slightly was the fact there wasn’t a lot of space around the pool and the sun didn’t hit the sun beds until midday - but not a big deal breaker! Mustafa was a great host, he was contactable all the time and was always very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this villa!!!
Great family holiday in Kalkan
We decided to book Villa Tera Mare due to its large size (group of 10) & quirky features.
Upon arrival the villa did not disappoint with a fantastic open plan kitchen/living space, plenty of outdoor seating & a good sized swimming pool. A few more sun-beds around the pool would have been nice but it didn't stop us making full use of the outside areas.
The stand out feature has to be the rooftop bar which provides stunning views of the bay & is the perfect setting for evening drinks!
Kalkan itself is a beautiful place with lots of restaurants & bars. Some are within walking distance along with a small supermarket (prepare for lots of hills though!) but a taxi to the centre is roughly 15TL so we headed there most nights for the extra variety.
We'd definitely recommend staying at Villa Tera Mare. It's perfect for large groups & the quirky decor & features of the property add that little bit extra to your holiday experience!
Wow, awesome, what a view!
What a beautiful space. It was clean, tidy and had been stylishly and tastefully appointed. We will definitely be coming back and would recommend to anyone. The weather, sea and food were amazing but the people were even better!!!
Great accommodation with amazing views
Beautiful venue, rooftop bar was amazing. 5 minute walk to local shop who will deliver with no problem.
Always need a taxi into the centre of town but prices are reasonable and service is quick.
A thunderbolt in Kalkan
As a group of independent tavellers me and my friends chose to discover the Lycian region of Turkey. We came through this amazing villa on the web and that was like a thunderbolt. We immediately felt in love with the interior design and booked it. Once we arrived, the house was unpredictably better than it appears on the photos. A beautiful smell of cedar wood among the refined, authentic and colorful decoration - beside the ever smiling people who welcomed us - immediately put us into a very special atmosphere. The villa is clean, very well equipped and spacious. Although we were 10 of us, we could still enjoy a beautiful privacy. Rooms are very large, so the bathrooms and the beds the most comfortable we ever slept in. From the top roof terrace we could enjoy the most stunning view of the Kalamar bay, with its little islands and the beautiful turquoise color of the mediterranean sea. That was our best spot to enjoy drinks during the sunset. With our big surprise a nice complimentary welcome pack was offered to us, water, bread, breakfast stuff and a bottle of wine we used to celebrate our first top terrace evening happy hour. as far as the house charme, the location is lovely, 5 minutes walking from the best beach clubs, up to 10 minutes walking from the shopping markets, nice little boutique restaurants and cafés. That was the perfect location for our staying, as well as the efficient and precious tips and 24h assistance our hosts gave us to discover the unspoiled corners of the region. Kalkan itself is a pearl among the most touristic areas nearby, cosmopolitan and cool from where we came back with a bigger heart. Thank you guys, see you next year! Eleonora & co.
Villa Tera Mare
A beautiful villa with stunning views, please be aware that the area around is very very hilly. This villa just needs a bit of TLC and maintenance as some things getting a bit tired or not working however you would still love staying here. wouldn't say it was suitable for children or older people though. Kalkan is fantastic and the locals are so friendly and helpful. A really chilled vibe!
