Kalkan Villa Rental Photos and Description

Delightful luxury villa, with very large private pool

Luxury villa, with own private pool &

wonderful views over Kalkan & the Bay Villa Güzel - A delightful villa, in a select position on a peaceful hillside, with wonderful views over the picturesque, sophisticated resort of Kalkan.

The villa has been built to an extremely high standard with antique marbled floors, featuring limestone walls internally and spiral staircases to the main bedrooms.

The private fresh water swimming pool is larger than normal and is serviced daily. the terrace is spacious and well equipped with sun loungers and tabling to seat eight, for meals to be enjoyed outside under the pergola. The shaded terrace seating area is adjacent the main BBQ

The villa is tastefully furnished and decorated, with air conditioning to provide comfort throughout the villa. The spacious open plan lounge features a TV/DVD ( WiFi Internet )a stone fireplace and French door which open onto the large terrace and private swimming pool.

Kalkan: Kalkan, described as Turkeys best kept secret, is a small, sophisticated resort set on the Turkish Mediterranean Riviera. The town nestles on the foot of the Taurus mountains and was once a small fishing village, it is now a charming holiday resort consisting of cobbled streets, housing interesting shops selling jewellery, carpets and local goods. One can enjoy bartering with the shopkeepers and their hospitality offering of apple tea.

Kalkan is one of the most unspoilt resorts on the Mediterranean coast. Retaining the charm and character of a Turkish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets, lined with local craft, antique and clothes shops. There is an air of relaxed sophistication reflected in the hospitality, fabulous harbour side and rooftop restaurants offering the highest quality traditional cuisine, which is sure to delight even the most discerning palette.

Kalkan comes alive at night, you can set your own pace - stroll through the bustling colourful streets.

General: Hire a car or join a local excursion to visit one of the many historical ancient sites such as Patara, Xanthos, Tios, a trip to the Taurus mountains or the amazing Saklikent Gorge.

Enjoy mountain walks, climbing, trekking, caving and parascending, have a relaxing Turkish bath or massage to ease away the aches and pains.

Transport

A car is not necessary.

We recommend and can arrange transfer from Dalaman or Antalya airports direct to the villa by air conditioned vehicle as follows :

From Dalaman 1/3 people car £65, 4/7 people minibus £ 80, 8/14 people minibus £105

From Antalya 1/3 people car £105, 4/7 people minibus £135, 8/14 people minibus £155 (each way).

Taxis are cheap and readily available to and from the villa. Hire a car locally, from £30 a day. Dolmus buses operate between Kalkan and local beaches and towns. Local excursions are available to many interesting and historic sites.

The Area: Kalkan has a small pebble beach located at the very end of the harbour.

There are several ‘Beach Clubs’ these are platforms which are built into the sea. They provide sun beds for a small charge and have bar and restaurant. They are located at :

Kalamar Beach Club (this has water sports including ringo’s, banana’s, water skiing, jet ski’s, snorkelling etc. You can ring for a free transfer, but have to pay for sun beds)

Yacht Beach Club, located at the harbour

Likya, Mahal and Patara Beach Clubs are a water taxi ride away from the harbour.

Hire a skippered boat for the day from the harbour (approximately £15 a head including lunch). For a 4 to 8 berth we found the Muddy Boat & Sunset most enjoyabler.

Patara Beach

The Sunday Times recently described this as one of the top 10 unspoilt beaches in Europe.

You can easily get there by dolmus or car.

Why Mr Leonard Bennett chose Kalkan

We fell in love with Kalkan & on our first visit bought Villa Guzel. We were impressed with design & particularly the cream stonework both internally & extrenally. Anne loves swimming therefore was delighted with the large pool. Guests agree the villa has a warm welcoming feel about it and the location perfect. So many guests of our guests express their love of it & our Guest Book is full of praise & comment ' We Will Return '.

What makes this villa unique

Good Location. Private site with seven luxury & individual designed villas, probably the best in Kalkan. Very large pool that has the added feature of a number of steps that children enjoy playing on. Shaded pergola for meals. Shaded seating area with BBQ. Another BBQ on the main balcony where you can enjoy an evening drink & views over Kalkan & the Bay.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5
Well what can I say Len and his wife made our booking seemless and the Villa is fantastic. Location is a short walk to the town but far enough away to be peaceful. Kalkan is just amazing.So if you are looking for a more up market holiday this is the place to be.

My wife and I enjoyed it so much last time that we will be going out again this year.

Highly recommended.

Thanks again for a great stay.

Amazing villa, well appointed, and well located

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing honeymoon in Villa Guzel, the perfect ending to our wedding celebrations. The villa more than lived up to our expectations; it was immaculate, well-located, secluded and so spacious that the 2 of us often lost each other! Two lovely balconies for watching the sunrise and sunset over breakfast or an evening bottle of wine, a short walk to bustling Kalkan with its 300 restaurants and shops providing good quality handbags and clothing – of course we had to go shopping!
We were well looked after by Hakan, the agent, and Martin who cleaned the pool daily; the villa was also cleaned by discreet cleaners every day. Len, the owner was very helpful from the booking to the prompt return of the deposit.
We would thoroughly recommend this villa as it a slow amble to the town – often accompanied by friendly dogs who escort you to the next dog patrol – amazing! We even saw a tortoise on our climb down the secret steps.
Like many others who visit Turkey we have fallen in love with the Turkish cuisine and were spoilt for choice by the romantic restaurants with roof top terraces (Olive Garden) or the Turkish style seating on the floor (Belgins), together with our favourite kebab restaurants which were very good value (Hunkars).
We visited the legendary Patara beach (why did we go all the way to Cuba last year when this was nearer?) and left the words “Just Married” all over the sandy beach, made by our flip flops, a wedding present from friends. We would like to return one day with our “Still Married” flip flops!
I was in tears when I left as it had been such a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful Again!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Guzel in 2010 & just had to return as we loved it so much. Such a lovely villa & location . We love the extension of the patio including the BBQ & new shaded seating area & the minor additions, the WIFI Internet & the iced / hot water unit & the fact the hot water could be isolated as our 2 year old daughter loves switches. We were surprised how many of the restaurant staff remembered us & the food is still amazing but we found had increased in price, but of course so had the exchange rate to our benefit. We keep telling our friends how wonderful Kalkan is, but perhaps we should keep it our secret. We looked up your Availability Chart for 2013 & was not surprised to see how many booking you already have. We will return.

Perfect Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation property. The house was amazing - especially the pool area. The locations was perfect - not too close to the town center, but not too far that you felt isolated. It was about a five minute drive into town. There are plenty of places to eat and the food is spectacular. There is a beach club that is attached to one of the hotels that you can rent a sun bed and have drinks, food and swim for a very good price. I have rented properties in Cesme and Bodrum, but this house by far was the best. And I absolutely loved Kalkan. We hired a sailboat to take us around for the day - and it was at a very good price. We also hired a boat to take us around to some of the historical sites. Both were very good value. There is nothing like diving off a boat into the sea. The house was cleaned daily. Len arranged for our airport transfers, which was very reasonable and comfortable. Dalaman airport is approximately 2 hours away from Kalkan. All in all this was a memorable holiday - and thanks for the use of your lovely home.

Villa Guzel, Kalkan, Turkey

  • 5 of 5
Len, thank you for the use of your superb villa, we all had a fantastic time. We were all very impressed with your villa, by far the best we have ever stayed at. We were also impressed by the maid service each day, very efficient, yet never intrusive. The pool was an absolute joy and very refreshing under glorious sunshine from early morning and throughout the day. Thank you once again and hope we can return in the future.

We had a wonderful time at Guzel, the villa was lovely. The Villa is ideal for quiet peaceful holidays, and is not too far from the town centre, with lots of Restaurants and shops.. The pool is great, not too small and the Air Conditioning is ideal for the really hot days.

Patara Beach, an 18 kilometre-long strip of sand bordered on its ends by mountains, should not be missed with its gorgeous landscape and great swimming. It is a national park and home to many birds, also the breeding ground of the endangered Loggerhead turtle, and is acknowledged as one of the best beaches in Turkey.

Kaputas, seven Kilometres from Kalkan, along the most beautiful coastal road to Kas is the most striking gorge. Plaques on the bridge commemorate the deaths of the workers killed during the road construction. Accessible by 120 very steep steps nestles the most perfect sandy shingle cove and beach. Close by the Blue Cove is marked by a road sign, but simply look for a small gathering of yachts admiring the spectacle.

Kas a twenty seven kilometre drive from Kalkan along the wonderful coastal road is a pleasant working town surrounded on three sides by the mountains, life centres around the harbour and town square with the usual tea houses, bars, restaurants and shops. Shops on the main street serve the local community, however the charm still remains and it is a pleasure to wander the cobbled streets checking the shops selling souvenirs, handicrafts, leather goods clothing and the silver and gold items.

Little is left of the ancient Antiphellus, which Kas was named in the fourth century BC, however the well preserved and restored Lycian theatre and the several tombs hewn out of the sheer mountain are illuminated at night. In the town is the a Lycian Sarcophagus, the Monument Tomb.

Local harbour boatmen will take you to fascinating bays and coves where the swimming and diving is excellent in the clear water or to admire the luxury villas on the peninsular.

A popular boat tour from Kas is to the Kalekoy, the sunken city, submerged in the Mediterranean Sea and Ucagis an idyllic setting on a bay amid islands and having a number of Lycian tombs and a sarcophagi the shape of a house.

Saklikent Gorge, 18 kilometres long and cut deep into the Akdalglar mountains, is the deepest in Turkey. It is best visited on a late hot summers day, as the water is not quite as cold and deep, making the paddle more enjoyable. Have a beer, snack or freshly caught trout at the waterside raft restaurants and bars, decked out with Turkish rugs and cushions, and shaded by fig trees. An adventure for the young and old.

Xanthos the ancient city, the grandest capital of Lycia, has some excellent ruins and is only a 30 minute drive from Kalkan. It stands atop an elevated area within the Xanthos valley with the Xanthos River closely under the city's west side. From this elevation one receives supreme view of the valley surrounded by the spectacular Taurus Mountains.

The Pillar Tombs & The Xanthian Obelisk

The history of Xanthos is quite violent. The Xanthosians twice demonstrated the fierce independence of the Lycian people when they chose to commit mass suicide rather than submit to invading forces. The Xanthosian men set fire to their women, children, slaves and treasure upon the acropolis before making their final doomed attack upon the invading Persians. Xanthos was later repopulated but the same gruesome story repeated itself in 42 BC when Brutus attacked the city during the Roman civil wars in order to recruit troops and raise money. Brutus was shocked bt the Lycians' suicide and offered his soldiers a reward for each Xanthosian saved. Only 150 citizens were rescued.

Xanthos is about a 30 minute drive from Kalkan and well signed posted. The site of the Lycian capital city and has been excavated by the French from 1954. It contains a good example of an amphitheatre and mosaics. It is best to arrive here about 4 pm as the site is open until 7pm and most visitors have left, it is cooler at this time. There is a shaded area to sit where you can buy drinks, and use the loos. From here you can take approximately a 30 minute drive to reach the mountain village of Islamlar mountain village where there are several good restaurants which serve trout that is farmed in the area.
