Overview

About the property

Three bedroom, spacious rooms, established garden and easy walk to town.

Villa Florence nestles in the olive groves which overlook the unspoilt village of Kalkan on the Mediterranean. The house has been lovingly furnished using local crafts and materials with just enough personal effects to make you feel at home. It is situated in a beautifully landscaped, private garden, filled with a range of tropical & indigenous plants and boasts a large 40 sq m pool which is completely private and not overlooked. The house has three large bedrooms, four bathrooms, spacious open-plan sitting room with two sofa beds, kitchen/dining area, first floor balcony, veranda and roof terrace. It is air-conditioned throughout and is well equipped with all modern conveniences including satellite TV, DVD, Hi Fi, Playstation 1 and 2 (inc lots of games) and Broadband Internet. Just bring your laptop and you are immediately connected to your high speed internet. Free local calls with house phone. Stand alone water dispenser for endless supply of cool, fresh drinking water.

About Kalkan: The village of Kalkan descends to the sea and picturesque harbour in terraces of white-washed and wooden houses, many boasting ornately carved Ottoman timber balconies, draped in bougainvillaea. Very strict building rules ensure that the village remains small, in tact and unspoilt. The streets and alleyways are a veritable Aladdin's cave - think carpet bazaars, antique shops, ceramic stores, and arty jewellery shops where pieces are custom-made in silver, gold, turquoise and amber.

Sights: Cruises - a day at sea is a must. Take a trip on one of the many Gulet cruises from the harbour and visit stunning secluded coves.

Beaches - Kalkan beach is next to the harbour. It's a pebble beach so the sea is unbelievably clear. Sandy Kaputas beach is 10 mins away while Patara Beach (30 mins away) is regularly voted one of the best beaches in the world.

Ancient Ruins - Kalkan offers easy access to many great classical sites such as Xanthos, Patara, Letoon, Pinara and Tlos

Kalkan's Restaurants: Kalkan is famous throughout Turkey for its roof-top bars and restaurants which offer fabulous views of the harbour, the sea - and at night, the stars. For such a small place Kalkan has an astonishing range of restaurants. You can sit cross-legged on kilims and floor cushions and be served traditional Turkish fare, enjoy freshly-caught seafood at one of the smart harbour side establishments, or feast on the closest thing you'll get to home-cooking at one of the charmingly low-key, back street eateries

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Florence for a week as part of a longer holiday in the Lycian Coast area and would have been happy to stay much longer.

Villa Florence is stylish, spacious, comfortable and very conveniently laid out; the pool is large and the outside space is delightful. The description of the villa and its amenities is accurate and everything is in good working order and well maintained.

The whole booking process was very straightforward with excellent communication by the Owner throughout, including the return of our security deposit. It was also very reassuring to have communication with the local managers during the booking process.

The local management of the villa is excellent and unobtrusive. Everything was ready and immaculate for our arrival and a minor problem was resolved with impressive speed and efficiency. It was great to walk out in the mornings to find that the terrace and pool had been cleaned, tidied and all leaves removed.

We enjoyed Kalkan which is a low-key small town with its old streets tumbling down to the sea; picturesque, particularly at night, and very well-provided with good retaurants with great views. The villa is well located a short distance from the centre, an easy walk downhill and, if you can't face the uphill walk back, a cheap taxi or the bus. We had rented a car as we were travelling but there are some fantastic scenic drives in the area along good coastal roads and up in the mountains and as well as fascinating places to visit, so we would suggest a car for at least a day or two.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Florence and would have no hesitation in highly recommending the house and the area to anyone visiting this rewarding part of Turkey, so much of which is still unspoilt.

Kalkan
Car: not necessary

Kalkan is a small peaceful village on the Med which hasn't been touched by mass tourism. Set against the majestic backdrop of the Taurus mountains, it occupies possibly the most beautiful position along Turkey's stunning Lycian coast. The area is renowned for it's natural wonders such as Patara Beach and Saklikent Gorge and it's wealth of historical sights such as Xanthos, Patara, Letoon and Tlos. Villa Florence is situated in a commanding, elevated position with lovely views over Kalkan Bay and is a short, 10 minute walk into the town. The nearest shop is 1 minute walk away. The villa is sited in a plot of 4 other similar villas, none of which overlook each other and separated by thick garden vegetation. The plot is backed by natural landscaping (mainly olive trees) and the nearest villa is approximately 1 kilometer away. We are very close to the main, though generally quiet main road into Kalkan and we are opposite the sleepy, new bus garage with cafe and barbers.

Other Activities: Archaeology, historical sights, local markets, turkish baths, canoeing, 4 wheel drive trekking, white water rafting

Golf: The nearest golf course at present is about 1 hour away in Fetiye although there are constant talks about building one near Kalkan.Please enquire for news!.
