Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Kalkan - STUNNING Villa Yar, Kalkan

Designer villa sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. Open plan living area & pool.


Deal direct with the owners, Paul and Lucy, and escape to an exclusive villa by the beautiful turquoise Sea in Kalkan, Turkey.

Kalkan is a beautiful sleepy town that feels a million miles from the 'troubles' we are experiencing across Europe, with the locals striving more than ever to make your holiday a dream come true. Please come and experience this!

Our private Villa Yar looks boasts fantastic views across the bay of Kalkan and is not overlooked. We have one of the longest terraces in Kalkan with high quality sunbeds, a Jacuzzi and private pool.

We always offer LAST MINUTE DISCOUNTS so get in touch today.

After being fully booked summer 2015 we look forward to another great season in 2016 in the best holiday destination. Many repeat guests, honest reviews on our website and excellent owner/client liaisons should provide your trust in choosing Villa Yar.

Set in the cliff face it is both private and exclusive. With a heated skyline pool and brand new for 2015 6 man heated jacuzzi on one of the longest terraces in Kalkan it is ideal for the individual wanting something different. The view over Kalkan and the bay is simply breathtaking.

Spread over 4 floors with travertine marble throughout, Siemens kitchen, and en suite bathrooms make this a designers dream. English owned it has modern technology, iPod docking stations and plasma TVs.

The garden has been carefully set out to give a vibrant mix of colours with exotic scents. Kalkan is a much different and welcome change from the usual summer resorts of Spain and Cyprus. Simply the holiday destination you always wanted. The pretty harbour of Kalkan is 1km away so you won't get awoken by the village mosque! There is a fabulous beach club a short walk away offering sunbeds, lunches and divine swims in the refreshing sea.

Wakeboard Lessons: Kalkan is perfect if you wish to water-ski. The bay of Kalkan is flat calm most mornings and evening. It is a stopover for sailing boats and Gulet trips as it is a natural harbour. Around Kalkan it is excellent for walking, ancient ruins, beaches, Gulet and sailing cruises, horse riding, tennis and mountain biking. If you don't have the energy the villa comes with various books, scrabble, backgammon and cards. Perfect, just sit on the roof terrace and escape!

Gulet Cruise Boats can collect you from the pier near to the villa (Approx 100 yards down the hill) and take you for a swim and snorkel in the bays as well as providing fab food! Mehmet on the Falcon boat is highly recommended.

The Kalkan Beach restaurant 100m from the Villa has a water taxi running into town every half hour which is a ten minute scenic ride!

Scuba Diving: Lessons and Padi courses available personally and can be booked in advance by the owners direct. Two qualified Scuba boats are berthed at Kalkan harbour and sail daily to the dive sites. Diving in Turkey is excellent with visibility in excess of 30mts.

Beach Trips and Gulet boats: Patara beach and Kaputas beach are both wonderful. Why not pack a hamper and spend the day swimming in the Lycian sea? Alternatively hire a Gulet boat for the day and sail around the islands. A full day including food starts at £10 per person.

About Lucy Turner

We are a married English couple and this is our holiday home. You will see this by the personal touches you don't often find in rental properties.

We adore Kalkan and are proud of our villa. We will happily advise on things to do, places to visit and any other extras regarding your stay. We liaise regularly before your stay so you do not feel you cannot get in touch.

We advise all potential guests to speak with us personally on the telephone as well as regular email correspondence to ensure you know you are making the right choice and are confident in your booking.

Lucy Turner purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lucy Turner chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

Villa Yar has been successfully rented for the last five years, with many repeat guests. We regularly visit our property to check what needs doing and redecorate annually to ensure it doesn't look 'tired'. We listen to any guest feedback and use this to make improvements. We invested in quality furnishings from the start and over the last few years have continued to add new furniture due to demand (for instance, we now have three separate outside seating areas to ensure variety and everybody can find a quiet corner!)

What makes this villa unique

Villa Yar has one of the longest terraces in Kalkan and we have utilised this with a large HEATED swimming pool, 8 man jacuzzi and plenty of outdoor furniture (sofas, a dining area and numerous sunbeds and beanbags) Our terrace is NOT overlooked.

We look over the bay towards Kalkan which offers an incredible and unique view, especially at night when the town is lit up from the bars and restaurants. For the nightly price of a quality hotel room you can have this WHOLE VILLA! What a great way to share a holiday with your friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Yar was amazing and everything we expected and more. We actually preferred being away from it all in Kisla as well and loved the local beach club which we visited often. Kalkan was just perfect too and we are all missing it now.

In fact, we loved it so much, i'd like to know if we are able to book it again next year? Honestly, we have never been back to the same place twice so this proves how much we enjoyed our stay!

Best villa we have ever stayed in, great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kalkan before and stayed on the other side of the bay, but we really loved Kisla (where Villa Yar is) for the views, especially at night!

The villa was large, clean and all the rooms were gorgeous and well designed. We loved the heated pool.

The villa gets all the morning sun but we popped down to the beach club for free sunbeds and a swim in the sea for the afternoons which was perfect.

Kalkan has the BEST restaurants and shops and it is really cheap at the moment. We just loved it.

We will be going back again next year!

Truely Wonderful .. Already Planning My Next Visit

  • 5 of 5

Hard To Beat!!

I have travelled a lot and had the privilege of staying in some lovely places, but never have I truly wanted to go to the same place twice.. That was until I stepped into Kalkan and Villa Yar.

The villa itself is a home from home but still incorporates all the luxuries of a five star hotel.

Looking out form the terrace you are greeted by the most stunning view over the bay, this has to be seen to be appreciated and is even more spectacular at night time when the shimming lights of the town and moon reflect over the bay.

The pool is lovely and I enjoyed nothing more than swimming to the view point overlooking the breath taking Tauras Mountains and absorbing the spectacular views.

A short walk away and you are in the town itself which has a perfect balance of traditional charm and modern upbeat nights.

I really couldn’t recommend Villa Yar more as the perfect holiday spot which caters for all and I’m already planning my next trip.

Fantastic stay at Villa Yar

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at the villa, it was absolutely gorgeous and just as described on the website. The view from there of Kalkan is beautiful and it's great to relax in the pool overlooking the sea. Really comfy beds and the bathrooms and kitchens have everything you need. Kalkan is a great town with some lovely restaurants and great shops. Definitely booking to come back!

Wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend Villa Yar highly enough. Beautifully furnished, with a fantastic pool and terrace, and with spectacular views across the bay, it was a week of bliss! I will definitely be coming back, to both Kalkan and Villa Yar. We had so much fun and there was much to do - from boat trips around the coastline, days at one of the beach clubs, perusing round the shops, to drinks and dinner at one of the many (and extremely high quality, but not expensive) restaurants, Kalkan really is perfect for couples, groups or families. Thank you!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Yar. I highly recommend as it ticks all the boxes for a perfect holiday. Location is peaceful and so near to a vast selection of restaurants, bars and shops. Everything in the villa is thoughtfully selected and is to a very high spec. The beds are so comfortable and thoughtful touches like washing powder and dishwasher tablets just make it easy. The property is very clean and the pool and outside area is perfectly maintained. The pool is fantastic you can easily spend a couple of hours relaxing in the pool with the sunshine overhead. I visited with my parents and partner and would go back time and time again as I feel I haven't seen all of it yet but on my next visit I will certainly travel along the coastline. All the restaurants along the harbour front are of great quality and are very reasonably priced and our favourite was Gironda a roof top restaurant the food was great quality and only slightly higher in price than the others. Shopping is great be prepared to come back with a jam packed suitcase! There is something for everyone. Any hesitations forget them this is the place to be and a real hidden gem. Loved it!!

relaxing winter holiday, we love kalkan!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this Christmas at Villa Yar in 20 degrees to avoid the floods back home! whilst it was off season there were still plenty of people about and a number of places open. The Villa is a super location with views right over the bay from all the rooms so the kids didn't argue as to who had what room! You can walk into town if feeling fit! and there is a small beach 100m from the Villa for a swim. The pool and Jacuzzi are both heated which was great although I guess if you go in the summer that's the last thing you want! The Villa inside is very much a home with lovely furnishings, a book shelf fit for a library and over 100 DVDs to choose from although we used Netflix a few times with the provided HDMI cable (thanks Lucy for the tip!). The beds were extremely comfy and we appreciated all towels provided as it saved us space in the suitcase for gifts. Booking the Villa was easy, transfers simple and we had a great break. Thanks so much for letting us stay we will be back next year to make best use of your sunbeds!
