Lovely quiet villa with stunning mountain views. Very well appointed, with the owner always on hand to make your stay very special indeed. This is the third time we have been and will return again!! Visit the lovely restaurants in the local village fantastic value and excellent food.
We had a lovely holiday at Villa Sude. Everything about the villa was perfect. Very clean, neat and tidy, everything in it was very good qualtiy, bed was sooooo comfy :)
Up in the Islamlar hills, very private and peaceful with wonderful views down the valley to the sea in the distance. We enjoyed the restaurants in the nearby village, lovely food and friendly people.
Very highly recommended villa if you want peace and quiet in lovely surroundings with the bright lights of Kalkan just a 15min drive.
What a lovely villa high up in the mountains, we instantly felt at home there very comfortable every you needed for a home from home stay was there. Places to eat close by but you do need a car to get about. Everyone is very friendly they speak very good English and always willing to help.
This villa sits neatly in the hills a short drive above Kalken and has been recently completed by the owner. This villa has been built to a very high standard and is superbly well equipped, including en suite wet rooms and a beautiful infinity pool. The open contemporary interior has an excellent kitchen and is very comfortable. We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed a relaxing, quiet and wonderful time, so much so we have already booked for next year. Thoroughly recommend this property!
We are a family of two adults and a teenage son and we found that Villa Sude provided us with the perfect balance of independence whilst being close enough to Kalkan to make it easy to dash down to the coast when we needed activities, restaurants, boat trips, shopping etc. The journey was fun as we hired a jeep which coped well with what was then an unmade road (since tarmaced I believe). The villa itself is beautifully positioned, wonderfully equipped and extremely comfortable. Even in the phenomenal heat of July 2013, the combination of the elevation and the contstruction of the villa meant that we literally didn't need the aircon though it was there if we did.
If we got too hot at any time of day, there was always the superb pool to cool off in. It was always difficult tearing ourselves away from the pool to venture further afield and when we did it was great to look forward the the prospect of coming home to the villa and pool.
Jusuf and his family were very welcoming and provided us with produce from their land at different stages of the holiday and their fish restaurant in the village is excellent.
