Kalkan Villa Rental Photos and Description
Huge villa sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. Open plan living area. Pool.
Deal direct with the owners, Paul and Lucy, and escape to an exclusive villa by the beautiful turquoise Sea in Kalkan, Turkey. Set in the cliff face it is both private and exclusive. With a heated skyline pool and brand new for 2014 6 man heated jacuzzi on the huge terrace it is ideal for the individual wanting something different. The view over Kalkan and the bay is simply breathtaking.
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, iPod docking stations and plasma TVs.
The garden has been carefully set out to give a vibrant mix of colours with exotic scents. 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.

Why Lucy Turner chose Kalkan
Villa Yar has been successfully rented for the last five years, with many repeat guests. We regularly visit our property to check what needs doing and redecorate 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 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
Villa Yar was amazing and everything we expected and more. We actually preferred being away from it all in Kisla as well and loved the local beach club which we visited often. Kalkan was just perfect too and we are all missing it now.
In fact, we loved it so much, i'd like to know if we are able to book it again next year? Honestly, we have never been back to the same place twice so this proves how much we enjoyed our stay!
