About the property

Amazing Villa For 10! Heated pool, Jacuzzi & SKY TV. Sea views & Huge Terraces

ONE OF THE BEST VILLAS IN KALKAN! Stunning views, peace and quiet (total privacy) yet a stones throw from town, we believe Villa Yar is exceptional.

Get a whole villa for the price of a hotel room and make your family holiday a dream come true!

Villa Yar has one of the longest and most private terraces in Kalkan, compared to some villas which are shoehorned together, with newly renovated for 2017 heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi.

Our heated pool means low-season stays are ideal.

Take the boat shuttle across the bay into town!

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 2017 we look forward to another great season in 2018 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. The view over Kalkan and the bay is simply breathtaking. Direct sea access 100m away!

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, U.K SKY CHANNELS INCLUDING SKY SPORTS! iPod Bluetooth docking stations and plasma TV.

The garden has been carefully set out to give a vibrant mix of colours with exotic scents with large mixed level terraces. 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.

*Full payment of flights to be confirmed prior to reduction, maximum £350*

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 find in all 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 any questions are answered, no matter how obscure!

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 Kalkan

Longest private terrace!


Amazing views!

Heated pool and Jacuzzi!

Villa Yar has been successfully rented for the last six years, with many repeat guests. We regularly visit our property to check what needs doing and redecorate / reinvest 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 have British TV channels including SKY sports & movies.

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

We went to the Villa Yar in October half term and just loved Kalkan. We felt totally safe and the locals were so helpful we can't believe we haven't been before. We will definitely be going back next year!

Thanks Lucy for suggestins - we particularly loved the beach clubs and our kids could easily walk on their own to the beach park for swimming!

3rd year on the trot. And next year the 4th 😍

  • 5 of 5

Thought to share my view! Been coming to Villa Yar for 3 years now and as Kalkan gets more build up this one stays nicely set without everyone overlooking it. The Villa just has it nailed. Enough space, comfort, views and still close enough to town. Having a beach club within 3 minutes walk makes it even better. Can not fault the Villa and always good to contact its owners for the year after. Now I only hope that this review does not make anyone take our week 😊

PS: Was reading up on some of the other comments and must say that the person who left the negative comment must have been either in another house or just a genuine complainer.

Thank you and will be back next year!

Villa Yar - Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 and having seen the photos and previous reviews we knew we had found a Villa and location that was special. When we arrived at the Villa in the early hours of the morning we were blown away by what we walked into in spite of it being dark outside, when we awoke in the morning the view that greeted us was incredible. The view of the bay and across to Kalkan was superb. The pool, jacuzzi, seating areas were all used to the maximum with barbecues in the evening and fun and games and laughter in the pool with our children and Niece. The bedrooms were huge and so well appointed and we all wished we could take those comfy beds hone with us. The lounge area and kitchen was so well equipped with everything you could wish to have at your disposal.

Kalkan is a fantastic resort and the local people so welcoming and grateful for your custom. Boat trips, sunset cruises, visits to Patara and Kapustas beach, the weekly market, all great experiences to add to our memories.

The Villa owners Paul & Lucy were so helpful from the point of booking to the day we left, the managevent team and the pool man (Jemmi) who brought bread to the villa daily were also so attentive and helped make our holiday so trouble free and relaxing - A great team!

We have travelled to many destinations around the world over the last 30 years but I can honestly say that the combination of Villa Yar and Kalkan are a match made in heaven and our group overwhelmingly agreed that this has been our favourite holiday location.

Well done Lucy & Paul, you have a real gem in Villa Yar and we have been so fortunate to have experienced it.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

My second year at Villa Yar and again an excellent stay.

The Villa is located perfectly and is set back into the cliffs, offering views across the tranquil bay. In the day time you can see boats gliding across and at night the twinkling lights of Kalkan reflecting into the water, not to mention breath taking sunsets ( best enjoyed with a glass of Rose)

The Villa is located just outside the town which means there is no noise at night and offers a nice walk into the town or a very short taxi ride.

The Villa its self is like home from home, everything you can think of is supplied and catered for with some lovely extras thrown in ( The towels on my bed had been made into elephants which was very sweet )

The villa offers a very large terrace which was perfect for BBQs and playing cards, before heading out and experiencing Kalkan at night.

The town hosts many roof top restaurants and bars, which offer some of the best cuisine I have tasted and in the most idyllic settings. Whether you are looking for a romantic get away or a family escape, Villa Yar would be top of my list.

A very safe and truly wonderful holiday.

Thank you xx

We really feel that we've found something very special here. The pictures look amazing but the villa far exceeded our expectations. Kalkan is a beautiful resort with endless fantastic restaurants. We will definitely return year after year.

Villa Yar- The cherry on the Kalkan cake!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Villa Yar before and would not stay anywhere else. The villa is amazing, I love the fact there are loads of different areas to go to, from lounging around the pool, the sofas near the jacuzzi for pre-dinner drinks, the roof terrace, balcony and on and on! This just makes for such a great holiday which we have had there with a small group and a larger group both work so well, everyone has their own space.

With all of the doors opening out to what has to be the best view I have ever had on a villa holiday, I am officially in love with Villa Yar!

Kalkan itself has so much to offer but if you’re into food like me you cannot fail to be impressed by the quality and range of food you can buy in Kalkan- beautiful, fresh and such amazing value for money to enjoy at home for long dinners overlooking the bay-perfection!

For nights out or long sunny lunches the restaurants are gorgeous, each with their own style from fantastic beach clubs, traditional Turkish to high end restaurants (and everything in between) but all with menus which make you want to order everything and when the food arrives, always gorgeous with genuinely no exception.

We went on a boat trip which was such a brilliant experience, the water in Kalkan you marvel at each time you see it (on a boat trip you’re surrounded by the stuff!) we saw dolphins, turtles and had such fun visiting different coves along the coast diving in stopping only for a fantastic lunch and endless rose and beer!

All in all you cannot beat Kalkan for a holiday and coming home at the end of day to Villar Yar is the cherry on the Kalkan cake!

Other ancient sites of interest are Pamukkale the curious natural wonder where the Romans used to bathe in the natural thermal springs. Ephesus too is a day trip,the 10,000 year old ancient city was the largest in Asia Minor and one of the Seven Wonders of the world.
