This charming, detached four-floor villa offers a comfortable, family-friendly and relaxing four bedroom, five bathroom holiday home. Every room in the villa as well the 4 balconies and 3 outdoor terraces provide stunning, panoramic views of Kalamar Bay and the surrounding olive groves.

The villa is located near natural parkland and alongside an olive tree clad hillside where you can take some lovely walks. Villa Tymnessos's many balconies and terraces guarantee our guests unrivalled sea views, romantic and breathtaking sunsets and cherished memories of their turquoise coast holiday

Once you arrive at Villa Tymnessos, a car is not required to enjoy all that Kalamar Bay and Kalkan have to offer. Local dolmus (mini buses) run frequently throughout the day during the summer and local taxis are always available and provide a convenient and inexpensive option.

We are a family that loves to travel. We have always talked about owning a little place somewhere oversees where we could escape from the world. We found that in Kalkan and Villa Tymnessos is our escape.

Sean and Morgan Dollman purchased this villa in 2007

We fell in love with the tiny village Kalkan during a visit in Summer 2005 and returned in 2007 to house hunt. Villa Tymnessos was the first villa our agent took us to and it was perfect. We wanted a home that we could someday live in year round, that could accommodate our family reunions, that was a safe and child-friendly place to raise our family, and offered sea views and sunsets that we would never tire of enjoying. We love wandering through the quaint village and reliving the fond memories of past trips and renewing friendships with the local merchants. Once you eat the local food and experience one of the special Kalkan sunsets, you will know why this little village is so special to us.

We have tried to make the villa feel relaxing and comfortable like a real family home should. The villa is located in Kalamar Bay, which is very quiet and away from the tourist focus of Kalkan village, and which we believe adds to the serenity and relaxing atmosphere of the villa. We have decorated the villa with many locally produced crafts and linens, and we try whenever possible, to buy local. What makes the villa so special? It has to be the view. Where ever you are in the villa you have incredible views of the Mediterranean, the neighboring olive groves, the goats wandering the hill to the right of the villa, and the Taurus mountains behind Kalkan. But it will be the sea views that will always grab your attention and which you remember after your return home.

Fantastic Villa, thoroughly recommended

  • 5 of 5
A great place to base yourself. The villa was terrific, views awesome and the owners had put a lot of thought into fitting it out, to make sure you had a good time.
All of the terraces looked out over Kalamar Bay which was fantastic, whether that was lunch/dinner from the dining terrace or sundowners on the roof. We stayed in June/July and it was unusually hot I'm told, but the A/C was very good and once you got to towards sunset, there was a pleasant breeze across the roof terrace. Pool was great, pool man came every day and tidied up our mess (thanks). Cleaners came weekly and did a fine job. No issue with the 4 floor layout at all, meant everyone (two families) had plenty of space. Villa full of DVDs and games, found a portable CD player too. Kitchen well fitted, nice big fridge, washing machine a godsend. Plenty of pool/beach towels left for us. One late discovery, there is a guest book, with recommendations and tips, hidden in a drawer by the cleaners probably. Look for it! Any problems, the agent or his workman is there the next morning to resolve. Good location for us - out of town - but the taxi was only 15TL maybe 3 or 4 GBP. But you could comfortably walk to/from a nice hotel-restaurant and three or four bar-restaurants in 10mins. Wifi was great, no problems.
Negatives: no shade for the sunbeds, but the owners are going to look at that. Beer fridge on the roof terrace was not particularly cold, but hey that's nit-picking! Oh and time passed too quickly!!

clean and comfortable spacious villa

  • 5 of 5
Excellent villa over 4 floors - with 2 x en-suites and 2 additional family bathrooms it offered myself and extended family, children, stepchildren and their partners all the space we needed. The maintenance company were very attentative - cleaning the property half way through the week and the pool daily. and answering any queries we had. The villa was private but with breathtaking views across Kalkan. I will certainly consider booking again

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
The owners, Sean and Morgan, and their local property manager Hamza were very helpful from the outset.

The villa itself is in a lovely quiet location the next bay down from the main part of Kalkan and is very clean and comfortable. And the views out over the bay from the roof terrace and master bedroom in particular are stunning - I don't think I'd ever have got tired of waking up and looking out over that.

We went as two families, each with 2 kids of primary school age. The TV and DVD, wifi and pool kept them out of mischief (just about) when the adults were too busy cooking, drinking or dozing to be teaching them Mandarin, helping them practice the harp and all the other typical holiday activities you do with your kids.

Plenty to do as a family within 30-minute drive of the villa, there's some stunning natural beauty around this area. But I'll leave you to do your own research on that or to read the ideas we put in the guest book.

Down sides?

- 4-storey living isn't something I'm particularly used to or would particularly seek out again - on the occasions I went from bottom to top in one go my calves were screaming by the end, and I'd like to think that I'm in reasonable nick for a 40-year-old... But the result of that is the views from the upper floors - and they do compensate.

- Whilst we were there it was just too hot (high 30s / low 40s) to think about walking down the hill and into Kalkan let alone back up it, the centre of town is slightly out of range (for us at least) during the heat. So we drove in, or took a taxi (of which there are many). Nice for spring and autumn strolling, less so in the heat of summer.

All in all, highly recommended - certainly one of the best villas I've stayed in, and I've stayed in a few. Go enjoy!

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We found the villa to be exactly how it is described on the website. It is very well laid out indeed with the main hub being the kitchen and outside dining balcony being in the centre of this 3 storey property. The pool is excellent with plenty of shade available if required. The views from the property are stunning and with the two main bedrooms having there own balconies you can wake up to the delightful outlook. The roof terrace is an excellent place to gather for an evening G & T and watch the Swallows swooping and diving as the sun disappears over the mountain to the right.
Outside of the villa if you wish to have a change from the poolside we would recommend the Kalamar Bay Beach Club where you can hire beds for 10TL and enjoy a waiter service for your drinks. Lunches here are also good. It is a good place for Snorkelling and there are watersports available. In terms of the nearest restaurant we were a little disappointed with a meal at Café Vita and chose instead to use the Aqua restaurant which is next door. The food and service here is exceptional. The hotel further down the road (the name escapes us) is great if you want to watch the ashes cricket and also provides an excellent lunch. Other excellent restaurants in Kalkan were Moonlight, Touch Bistro & Nar. We would most definitely recommend taking a boat trip with Anil Boat which can be found in the harbour. We had a fantastic day out and the lunch was awesome. We felt guilty that we could not eat it all.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday which was made extra special by the fantastic villa.

Thank you as well for your many recommendations – we are confident that this information will be very useful to future guests.

Really nice villa. Great value.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Turkey and we did not get disappointed.
We can really recommend Villa Tymnessos.
We are two adults and five children ( six to 17 years old ), and we all hade two great weeks. We especially appreciated the roof terrace in the evenings (great views and a warm wind in your hair), the pool, ac and all english books at the bottom floor. Owners and their local representant Hamza offered good service and answered our mails promptly. They also contacted us a couple of times to check everything was ok.
We rent a van for the two weeks wich maybe was a bit overkilled, a couple of days had been more adequate.
Kalkan is a nice little city, quite touristic but friendly and with a lot of good restaurants. In fact we never had a bad meal in Kalkan.
The city centre is maybe 15-20 min walk away but there are plenty of taxis if you dont like walking. Grocery store (don't bother go to something bigger as the prices and offerings are the same) and resturant Vita (wich became our hangout) 5 min from the villa.
Kalamar beach club just down the hill was well worth the money.
There also was a nice little pebble beach in the centre, free with douches and a few steps away from plenty of good restaurants.
We liked Patara and Patara beach and also made a trip up the mountains to Arykanda (nice if you want to get away to something less touristic for a day). The Saklikent gorges was a little overestimated in our eyes, and our elder daughters who went in by them selves hade some problems with a local guide there.

We will not hesitate to rent villa Tymnessos again!

Our holiday in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing holiday at Villa Tymnessos. The villa was extremely clean with all home comforts. The views from every room are truly amazing and we would love to return for another holiday in the near future as we still have some restaurants on our "to try" list. Although it is a reasonable distance into the Kalkan harbour we really enjoyed our walks to the many restaurants and beach clubs. We hired a car for 3 days to see some of the local sights which was really worth while. Martin & Elaine - Buckinghamshire

We are thrilled that you rented a car to explore the area and it’s many sites – the coastline between Patara and Kas is spectacular and the mountain villages are a must visit. We hope that you have an opportunity to return to Kalkan soon.

Thank you again,
