About Pippa Leggate
David & Pippa Leggate. We live in England with our two dogs, but travel regularly with our work and visiting our family overseas. Southern Turkey has become a favourite destination for us all over many years, reflecting our enjoyment of it's fascinating culture, hospitable people, Mediterranean climate and beautiful coastline with it's terrific range of water sports. As keen sailors, Turkey has simply been our favourite country for all that it offers.
Pippa Leggate purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Pippa Leggate chose Kalkan
We love Kalkan for it's stunning sea views, charming ambience, relaxed sophistication, range of excellent restaurants and the variety of sea sports available. It is accessible, but appeals especially to those discerning individuals of all ages who enjoy good living and the opportunity to escape to the Turquoise Turkish Coast with all that it offers during the different seasons of the year.

Perfect holiday in Kisla
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Kisla during our 2 week holiday. This is our 4th time in Kalkan and we always stay in Kisla. It is close to the. beach club and within easy walking distance to he water which enabled us to have our morning swim every single day.
We have stayed in Villa Kaplumbaga before and it was wonderful but this time, we had a perfect stay. The villa is the cleanest and most organized property we have ever stayed in. We had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to towels. Irfan kept our outside space clean and organized and Karyn made sure that we have everything we need. The property is managed wonderfully by Karyn with impeccable attention to detail- one would think that is the only property that she manages
We will be back next year, hopefully to Villa Kaplumbaga again, and we plan to stay longer
Super villa in Fabulous location with amazing views.
Wow! What an amazing villa! Cannot fault it!
Very spacious inside, modern and well equipped.... even down to sun hats available to borrow and books to read.
The views from every part of this villa are outstanding and never failed to take my breath away.
Outside is also very spacious with different seating areas and good sized pool cleaned daily by Irfan.... who also Delivers a loaf of fresh bread every day.
We would describe the interior and exterior of the villa as luxurious.
This is our second time to Kalkan and we would not hesitate to return to this gorgeous villa.
The villa is situated in Kisla which is just over a mile from Kalkan- easily walkable ; we did it daily. Alternatively the water taxi from the beach club is a most pleasant way to travel to the charming harbour with its fabulous restaurants. Also there is an abundance of taxis available for 20 lira ( about £3.)
The Kalkan beach club is a 2 minute walk down the road with great drinks, food and various fun activities such as water slide and canoes which are all free.
Several other restaurants are within a few minutes walk of the villa as is Bobs supermarket which is pricey but convenient.
Karyn manages the villa and is on hand to answer any questions and sort out any excursions.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
Delighted to hear that you enjoyed Villa K so much and had such a great holiday. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for sharing your thoughts. We look forward to welcoming you back !
Amazing property in a fantastic place.
This is a great place to stay. 3 minutes walk from Kalkan beach Club. Our 3 teenage boys could have their independence within a reasonable distance from us!
The villa is well equipped with everything you need. The gardens and pool are cleaned daily by Irfan who will deliver bread every morning if asked. Karyn Rutherford who runs the villa is an absolute gem. This was our first time to Turkey and she made everything possible, no job too little or too big.
Kalkan is a 15 minute sea taxi ride away or 10 minutes in ordinary taxi.
Do not hesitate to book this property, definitely value for money!! The boys each had their own room with en-suite and a balcony.
Delighted that your enjoyed your stay at Villa Kaplumbaga so much, hope to see you back again very soon !
A place close to my heart
As always, what a wonderful stay in Kalkan. A place close to my heart. This is my 4th time staying in Villa K and every time it feels like it gets better and better. The villa is kitted out with everything we needed to make our stay a comfortable one without loosing a warm homely feeling.
The rooftop views at sunset are one of my all time favourite places to. A truly magical and reflective location.
The owner of the property goes out of their way to think of what the villa needs - and then some! Everything is well - maintened and cared for.
Going to Kalkan Beach club for an afternoon dip is a must - along with a iced coffee! If you go for an early morning swim, you may be in luck to see a turtle or 2! Taking out a day boat with Deniz is also an unmissable experience, we spent the whole day swimming with turtles in quiet, secluded bays!
I have no doubt that I’ll be back!
A fantastic villa in a lovely location
The villa is very clean, modern and extremely well equipped and a home from home. A great amount of space inside and out so that everyone was able to chill. The location in Kisla is quiet but with easy access to the beach and Kalkan town by car or water taxi. Support from the owner and her representative was excellent and made the stay so easy.
beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean
we had a fabulous 2 weeks at villa Kaplumbaga, it has everything you need, its location is perfect and it comes highly recommended
Delighted that everything at Villa Kaplumbaga was of a high standard and that you had a wonderful holiday.
Villa Kaplumbaga is approx. 300m from the sea. Kalkan Beach Club and The Mahal Beach Club are just a few minutes walk down from the villa. They all have restaurants and operate a water taxi service to Kalkan Harbour. Kalkan has a pleasant pebbly beach.
Within easy reach are Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach, both of which are sandy and gently sloping. Details are available in the villa.
Dalaman Airport is some 1 hour 45 minutes drive. Transfers to and from can be arranged. Many charter and scheduled airlines fly directly from UK airports.
Car hire is not necessary, but can be arranged if needed, to see the sights further away.
The centre of Kalkan takes 3/5 minutes by taxi. All Kalkan is hilly, so the walk will take about 25 minutes. Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and there are many historical sites close-by to visit. The ruins of Patara, still being excavated, and Xanthos, formerly the capital city of Lycia are a 30 minute drive.
Kalkan is sophisticated with a multitude of excellent harbour and roof top restaurants offering a high standard of culinary delights, together with a good selection of atmospheric blues and jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellers, carpets, clothing and leather bags. The narrow streets of the old town are ideal for an evening stroll. There are two banks with cash dispensers, as well the Post Office which usually offers the best exchange rate.
