Apartment in Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - South Facing Views And Sunshine All Day Long, Only 12-15 Minutes Walk To The Town Centre
About Nicola Empacher
Our names are Nikki and Konrad Empacher. We first went on holiday to Kalkan in May 2009 and were hooked instantly. So much so that we decided to buy an apartment the following year and haven't looked back. On 18th May 2011 we were married in Kalkan and had a wonderful week with family and friends. Then on 18th May 2013 we were thrilled with the arrival of our little boy, who has since travelled with us to Kalkan and loved every minute of it. Kalkan is a home away from home for us and I don't think we will ever get tired of going there.
Nicola Empacher purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Nicola Empacher chose Kalkan
We like the location of the property as it is bathed in sunshine all day long with some great views. It is easily walkable into town, with some local shops and restaurants also nearby. It is one of 16 apartments in a very unique complex with a stunning cascading pool.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love our apartment because it has a great private sun terrace with sunshine all day long and private access into the swimming pool for when you need to cool off. We love open plan living and al fresco dining at home, but also being within walking distance from Kalkan for when we want to dine out or go shopping.

We had the most fantastic 2 weeks in Elena. It was the perfect place to totally relax and chill out on the lovely sun terrace then swim in the absolutely huge beautiful pool. It was a brilliant apartment for a family of four with plenty of space and was very well equipped. Suleyman was very helpful too. Kalkan itself is a very special place with lovely friendly people, amazing restaurants and interesting shops. We loved Captain Ali’s boat trip and going to the local market. We will definitely be returning for another lovely holiday.
Home from home
Had a excellent stay at the apartment, well presented and spacious.
Beds were the best I’ve slept in and amazing views.
Lovely very well presented apartment.
Loved our stay and whole process was faultless.
Really nice apartment and great communication.
Hi Rich, thanks so much for your review and so pleased you liked the apartment and had a great time. I hope you'll come back again soon.
Perfect setting and location.
Really enjoyed our stay in Elena at Elvina Complex, Kalkan.
Nikki was a fantastic host and during and after our booking our questions were answered immediately.
Our stay was so relaxing, Elena apartment was perfect. Lots of room for 2 sharing, with a further twin bedroom and 2 en-suites.
Such ashame it was not used.
The terrace was a sun trap and never shaded from morning until evening. Honestly you have everything you need and more. Including, washing machine, dishwasher, iron, hairdryer. Lots of crockery/utensils. (We hardly cooked though). Nice soft towels, most of all the most comfortable kingsize bed i have slept in and that is a must for me.
The evening time, we went to lots of lovely restaurants, preferably along the harbour. Nikki recommended several restaurants and they did not fail us. Superb food and reasonably priced too, so loved the cocktails at Trio Bar. We were greeted by friendly staff and the service was amazing.
We loved the small pebble beach in Kalkan the sea was crystal clear. We also took a taxi to Patara beach, 20 mins out of town, sandy beach 16km long. Really nice as we like to walk. There is also nice beach clubs dotted along the shore line. Nearest was "Indigo" really nice.
Other reviews state the walk down to town was steep, maybe for some. We enjoyed walking down to town and back up of the evening, was not bad at all. The excercise did us a world of good, one evening we got a cab which cost around 15lira around £2 each way, really cheap.
Would highly recommend and most certainly will return.

This was our first stay at Elena and hopefully it won't be our last. The views from the bedroom balcony looking out over Kalkan Bay were stunning.
The swimming pool, which we had all to ourselves, was amazing in size and design.
The apartment had everything required for a comfortable, relaxing holiday in a sensational location with plenty of sunbeds and patio furniture for outdoor dining.
The location is just far enough away from the centre of town to provide a peaceful backdrop but only a ten minute walk to all the main restaurants and shops
Owner Nikki was always quick to answer any questions and thanks to her the holiday went without a hitch.
We would have no hesitation staying at Elena again. We loved every minute.
Hi Roger & Gail, thank you for your lovely review, I always love hearing feedback about Elena and what you enjoyed about your holiday. We would love to have you as our guests again should you return to Kalkan. In the meantime, sending best wishes, Nikki

Hi Gill & Nigel, thanks so much for your review. I’m very glad that you found our apartment and your holiday to be top notch! I hope you’ll stay at Elena again soon. Best wishes, Nikki
Dalaman Airport is the nearest airport and is about 1 hour and 45 minutes journey in a private transfer. Car hire from the airport is also possible.
It is a 12-15 minute walk downhill into Kalkan town centre. Kas, a slightly larger port town, is about 25 minutes drive. The biggest town nearby is Fethiye, about 1 hour's drive north of Kalkan.
