Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Stroll Into Town, Seafront A 5 Minute Walk Away
About ALISON JONES
We visited Kalkan for the first time in September 2011, and were so enchanted by its beauty, charm and the warmth and friendliness of the people that we decided to purchase a property. The Olympos Apartments were a perfect choice ... the stunning panoramic sea views took our breath away, and its location affords peace and privacy with the town a gentle 10 minute stroll away. We visit the apartment frequently and cannot resist the allure and magic of Kalkan .... it's such a unique and wonderful place. We sincerely hope you choose to visit Kalkan and experience the wonderful scenery, harbour, coastline, historic sites, watersports, quaint town centre and fabulous restaurants this charming town has to offer.

Why ALISON JONES chose Kaş
Kormuluk, where the apartment is situated is a prestigious, highly sought after location. The town centre is a short walk away, yet the property located at the end of the beach affords peace and quiet. Nestled into the hillside, the views are stunning .... the area of the coastline overlooked by the apartment is described by the Sunday Times as one of the top ten views in the world .... it really has to be seen to be believed!

"As a frequent traveller to various apartments over the years I have to say that this one really did take our breath away. It was our first visit to Kalkan and this apartment was situated on a hillside with the most amazing views that I have seen. The owner had considered every attention to detail, from booking and paying our deposit, we received an information pack through the post with maps of the local area and things to do. There was information that we could download from the owner about how to use every gismo and gadget that the apartment had to offer and let me say there was everything that you need, from pool towels to washing machine and pots and pans if you feel the need to cook. Yusuf manages the apartment is very hard working and helpful, if you did need him he would be there in minutes. There are sun beds and a table and chairs on the large balcony where you can dine al fresco and just soak up the sun and watch the fabulous sunsets. Also a nice sized pool with sun beds if you do fancy a swim to cool off. About a 10 minute walk away down steep stairs there was a beach club called Palm beach, if you did fancy a change of scenery and a drink, from here if you had spent the day relaxing there was a free water taxi which took you back to the harbour, where you could meander through the cobbled streets and have a gentle stroll back to the apartment at your own pace. Kalkan is very unique, it is hilly and has very small stone cobbled streets with an abundance of restaurants many that have rooftop tables with views over Kalkan rooftops and out to sea. There are coffee shops, bars and shops selling the local pottery etc. Kalkan is just delightful, the apartment has everything you need and is like home from home and the owner has gone to great lengths to ensure you have a stress free holiday"

The well appointed beach club, located in tropical gardens offers a water level sun deck with access to a protected swimming area and a small pebbly cove.

Many Lycian historical sites offering a fascinating glimpse into the past are within an hours drive of the town, often reached by jeep safaris into the mountains. The sandy beaches of Kaputus (10 minute drive) and Patara ... 18 miles of golden sand (15 minute drive) can be reached via the local dolmus. The harbour town of Fethiye (an hours drive) and Kas .. a 20 minute drive along a beautiful coastal road are well worth a visit.
