About Karen Ponsford
My husband and I both live and work in Colchester with our two teenage children (18 and 15). We lead very busy lives, but manage to visit Kalkan at least twice a year.
Karen Ponsford purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Karen Ponsford chose Kalkan
Turkey has been a firm favourite of ours as a holiday destination over the last 20 years. It was therefore the obvious choice when we decided to invest in a second home. First on our wish list was a coastal location away from lots of crowds, second was a sea view and third was easy access to areas of historical interest. Kalkan ticked all the boxes and more.
What makes this Villa unique
The whole family enjoy their holidays in Kalkan. Our youngest son has learnt to dive. Our eldest son enjoys the beach clubs and the lively nightlife of high season. We all enjoy eating out at the numerous high quality restaurants

Awesome place for relaxation
Really, the villa is awesome. The size is bigger more than it was described by Karen, It was clean and organised.
Unfortunately we did not meet Karen in person, but Tamer who is responsible for the villa was there, he is very helpful, has fast response and answers.
The location is near to a small beach, market for basic stuff. also, there is a sea taxi which go to Kalkan where are many activities and markets,....etc.
Even we were there in October, but it was still sunny so we enjoyed the pool, tennis table and BBQ.
Thanks a lot Karen and Tamer. Hope see you again :)
Thank you for your kind review.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our villa
A beautiful villa
We were lucky enough to stay at Swallows Rest in August. The property has outstanding views across the bay to central Kalkan. The villa is in Kisla, about a 5 min (£3-4) taxi ride into the heart of Kalkan.
The photos don't do this justice - it is spacious (4 floors) with magical views. It's an older style property that we immediately felt relaxed in (previous Kalkan villas we've stayed in have been pristine/sterile) The owner Karen was wonderful. Thank you!
Thank you for your kind review.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the villa. (Karen)
Special interest holidays:
The sea around Kalkan provide some of the best venues for scuba diving along the Mediterranean. Dive centres are situated in both Kalkan and nearby Kas. Other "wet" sports available nearby are water skiing, river rafting and fishing.
The villa is situated in Kisla a quiet area of Kalkan and is less than 6 minutes walk to the sea and local beach club.
A number of other beach clubs are dotted around the bay and can be accessed by water taxi from the main harbour in Kalkan.
Kalkan town pebble beach can be accessed via the water taxi (in tourist season). The beautiful sandy beaches at Patara and Kaputas are a short drive away or alternatively can be accessed by dolmus.
The village of Kalkan is approximately a 80 minute drive from Dalaman airport.
Dalaman is served by a number of airlines including easyjet, thomas cook, thomson and monarch, with various departure airports including Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast. The flying time is approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes.
Car hire can be easily arranged (the roads in turkey are relatively new and the traffic is light). Alternatively your airport transfer can be arranged by taxi by prior arrangement.
Kalkan is a great base for day excursions to the ancient Lycian sites of the Xanthos Valley, which includes the ancient sites of Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, and Patara.
Why not visit Europe's second longest gorge Saklikent and explore its caves and waterfalls, canoe along the Xanthos river or quadbike along Patara beach.
All the above are easily accessible by car or by dolmus that run regularly from the main square. Trips can also be arranged locally through a number of agencies based in the town.
A welcome pack consisting of a few basic provisions is provided for your convenience on arrival. If you have any special requirements please ask.
