About Andrew Ford
We are a married couple. I work in a senior managerial position for a large construction company. We visit Turkey at least once a year and have made many friends. Kalkan is a place that leaves a lasting memory for it's unique atmosphere and fantastic, numerous dining experiences.
Andrew Ford purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Andrew Ford chose Kalkan
We love Kalkan and the surrounding area for it's natural beauty and the local people. The town boasts over 120 roof terrace restaurants offering some of the best cuisine I have experienced anywhere in the world. For the shopper there is plenty of choice from high end fashion to local crafts. For the more active it boasts a great opportunity for sailing, diving, snorkeling and paragliding. Kaputas and Patara beaches offer stunning swimming in the turquoise Mediterranean sea.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is furnished to a very high standard with superb facilities which makes your stay that much more pleasurable. It is set in amongst olive trees with fantastic views of both the bay of Kalkan and the Taurus mountains. With it's private and tranquil location it is perfect to relax in the evening for a little alfresco dining. The villa really does offer a holiday to remember.

Lovely spacious property, with everything you need
Well maintained and cleaned, has all the mod cons, with a great pool area. A real home from home.
Villa fina great family home
Comfortable villa with lovely touches. The view is incredible and the town is picturesque. Would recommend staying here.
If you are a light sleeper take earplugs for the calling to prayer at dawn!
Nothing but positive - a fantastic stay.
The listening was very accurate. We were welcomed to the beautiful town of Kalkan to find a huge, well situated Villa in the mountains overlooking Kalkan bay. The villa was spacious; each room having an ensuite, it was clean, well kept and homely. It was obvious the villa was well loved.
I think the highlight for us, was the heated pool and the bbq and patio. It meant we could enjoy the villa, or head towards many of the fabulous restaurants in the bay.
The manager, Andy, was in easy reach answering any questions we had. We had no concerns with any communications.
I would highly recommend this Villa to friends and family. We hope to visit again. This area of Turkey was beautiful and we only managed to fit in a handful of fantastic restaurants and beaches.
It is worth mentioning the Patara beach, with the superb roman ruins. It is Turkeys longest beach, it was simply stunning.
We were anxious the weather would be too cold visiting in April, but in fact it was perfect. Warm enough to visit the beach and swim in the pool, even though it was it slightly cooler on the evenings.
All in all, perfect! Thanks Andy for letting us stay in your place.
Thank you for your kind words. You or any of your friends or family are welcome back anytime. There is lots more to explore.
Wow! Villa Fina is a stunning Villa well equipped and very comfortable. The Gardens and heated pool were excellent and well maintained by friendly but not intrusive staff. The views overlooking Kalkan town are beautiful and the hills are challenging good for the leg muscles!! What a super find and we certainly plan to come back.
Thanks for the kind words. You are welcome back anytime.
Villa Fina - a hidden gem
This was our fourth visit to Kalkan and our first stay in Villa Fina. Having already stayed in some lovely villas previously, we found the quality of the accommodation provided by Villa Fina was definitely the best we have experienced to date. Andy, the owner looked after us from the day we made the booking providing us with a full information pack with everything we needed to know about Villa Fina and the surrounding area - perfect for any first time visitors to Kalkan. Andy arranged all of our airport transfers which went without a hitch. The Villa was spotlessly clean on our arrival with a very welcome "welcome pack". Nihat visited the Villa everyday (early and unobtrusively so no one was disturbed) ensuring that the beautiful outdoor area and pool were always spotlessly clean. The standard of equipment provided in the kitchen far surpassed what we have experienced previously. There is space for parking for anyone who wishes to hire a car and there is a convenience store, the "Daily Market" just a two minute walk away, ideal for fresh bread and groceries. The villa is located next to an unspoilt area of the mountain side with fantastic views across the bay. We were very sorry to have to leave and can't wait to return.
Thank you for sharing out home and you are welcome back anytime. Hope to see you in the future.
Villa Fina - A stunning home from home!
From the moment we arrived, the property manager Nihat looked after us and explained where everything was and how things worked. We were welcomed into the relief of air-conditioned rooms and given some lovely local fruit, basic provisions and the use of a fresh water dispenser.
This villa was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean both inside and out with the location private and secure. As a family of 5 with three daughters 13,7 & 6 there was plenty to entertain, with the pool being the main attraction in the 40 degree heat - we adults could watch the girls play safely in the clean, warm pool whilst sunning ourselves on one of the 6 comfortable sun beds.
So here's what we loved about the villa:
- the stunning view
- the air conditioning in all rooms
- the pool, supplied with inflatables!
- the service (from Andrew organising airport transfers to Nihat replacing our water and providing local knowledge)
- being able to eat/drink/play games on the terrace without being bothered by mosquitoes
What we loved about the location:
- Kalkan Old Town shops
- Good value taxis to get us back up the hill
- Fantastic restaurants - Paprika, Coriander & Moussaka
- Friendly Turkish people who don't hassle you
- Plenty to see/ discover - beaches, boat trips, historical sites
What we didn't like - Coming Home!!!
We would seriously recommend Villa Fina to friends or relatives, but not if they took our slot!!
We would definitely want to return to Villa Fina next year.
Thank you for such a fantastic review. You and your family are welcome anytime.

The idyllic town of Kalkan on Turkey’s dramatic Lycian coastline nestles in the Taurus Mountains above a small, picturesque harbour. Its enchanting narrow streets lined with small shops, local restaurants and listed whitewashed houses with shuttered windows and carved-timber balconies covered in bougainvillea, twist down to an ancient harbour. From here, overlooked by a tiny whitewashed mosque, the fish are brought ashore in the morning and the wooden gullets sail out on their days trips around the bays and outlaying islands.
The climate in Kalkan is similar to that of Southern California, and the sea is the colour of turquoise. There are several beautiful, unspoilt beaches and beach clubs to visit; a variety of sports activities available; and lots to do, including days out at the ancient sites of Xanthos, Kale, Patara, Letoon, Tlos and Kekovda, shopping trips to the attractive harbour towns of Kas and Fethiye; a visit to the famous mud baths or Turkish baths; an excursion to the famous Saklikent Gorge, and much, much more.
