As soon as we chose villa Lavanta for our holiday villa, things were great, from keeping in touch with the owner about availability, payment etc. The owner is efficient and well organised. A copy of the villa handbook, discount cards and keys were sent to us before we set off for Turkey, it was brilliant that the owner had some great discount deals for a few restaurants, beach clubs and more. Our favourite was the taxi company that he had a discount deal with, we found the walk into town a wee bit far for our children 4yrs and 6yrs, when we headed out in the evening for a nice meal we would ring the taxi and they would arrive at the villa in 5 mins, so polite and friendly and also to our delight very cheap! When we arrived at the villa and looked around we thought 'wow', this place is lovely!While in Kalkan we had a hired car which abled us to see 2 beautiful beaches Patara & Kaputus. Kaputus is like a hidden cove of the most lovely turquoise green sea i have seen, well worth a visit, Patara is great for the children! Lovely sand and shallow waters. The facilities in the villa were Fabulous, everything thought of. Our children loved the pool, never could get them out! The pool was spotless with nice sunbeds and umbrellas. The villa was very clean and very well maintained. We had 2 favourite restaurants, 'Alternatif ' and the one with the magician guys, entertained us most of the night! Great Fun! All the restaurants are pretty good and look lovely in the evening, candlelit all along the cobbled streets.Waiters were very friendly and polite. The views from the villa were some of the best i have seen (breathtaking!) especially from the master bedroom balcony. We loved sitting on the kitchen balcony in the mornings and enjoying breakfast as a family, we would also have a nice lunch here with crusty bread, cheeses and salad. Our children loved the huge bean bags that you will find dotted around the pool and balconies, infact we all enjoyed a wee chill now and then on the bean bags. The view from the top floor is beautiful to relax and watch the sun set before getting ready to head out. We just wish we had stayed longer than a week in villa lavanta so we could have more time to enjoy the many lovely seating areas and balconies. We would definitely recommend this villa and kalkan to anyone and everyone that wish to visit Turkey. Its like the turkish riveria with a beautiful place to stay!
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for both a detailed and fabulous review. This will be so beneficial to potential guests trying to gather information and make the right choice.
I'm glad you made use of the concessions deals I have in place and I aim to increase the outlets for the 2010 season (time permitting). Pleased to hear that you also found the e-copy of the villa handbook a useful service. It gives you access to all the activities/places to see plus other helpful info 2 weeks before you arrive at the property saving you valuable sun bathing time!
As you have mentioned, there are numerous seating areas around the villa plus the bean bags can be easily carted to your favourite spot on the balconies/roof terrace/rear garden where you can take a well earned rest I’m sure.
Thanks once again for this detailed and informative review.
