About Anna Valentine
My husband Simon and I live in Stockport, England with our two children. I am a scientist in a Pharmaceutical company whilst Simon is an IT/risk consultant.
Anna Valentine purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Anna Valentine chose Kalkan
We bought Villa Zinnia in 2010 after several holidays in Kalkan with our children. We kept trying out new places in Europe but nothing even compared to Kalkans beautiful town with its narrow, flower lined streets, ultra friendly locals and in particular its amazing, high quality and plentiful restaurants.
What makes this Villa unique
We fell in love with Villa Zinnia primarily for its gorgeous pool and gardens overlooking olive groves and also being in a great location being not far from town but near some lovely restaurants. The villa is beautiful inside with everything you need for entertainment, cooking and a good nights sleep, whilst outside we have built a beautiful covered Ottoman seat for chilling with a book or G&T in the shade.

Lovely villa in beautiful Kalkan
Staying in Villa Zinnia was a wonderful experience. It’s location made it easy to get into Kalkan and the villa had everything we needed to make our stay a memorable one. We had lots af advice from Anna and previous guests and enjoyed exploring Kalkan and the surrounding area. We’d love to go back!
Lovely, private, well equipped villa
We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Zinnia. Spotless, well maintained villa with everything you would need for a perfect break. The lovely greenery around the villa protects your privacy and we were visited by the local tortoises from time to time!. The grocery shop opposite the villa is really handy so you don't even have to lug shopping far at all. The Porcini restaurant next door serves fresh and well presented food at reasonable prices and even provided a light meal to one of us who was a bit poorly one day. They also provided a meal very late at night for us when we first arrived tired and hungry off the plane. There was a generous starter package of foodstuffs in the villa when we arrived which was much appreciated. Can also recommend The Brothers restaurant next door which we visited several times. The Turkish people are so happy, kind and generous and we are already looking at returning to Kalkan again next year.
Fantastic Chilled Holiday
First time we have stayed at Kalkan and would definitely go back. The villa was brilliant, clean and quiet. The weather was fantastic, not too hot just perfect. The location of the villa had stunning views of the harbour. Even though walking back from the harbour each time was very hilly, steep hills this was no problem for us. Highly recommend Brothers Restaurant, service and food was brilliant. Porcini Restaurant owned by Deniz and his family (and dogs) were friendly, accommodating, fantastic food. If you like cocktails I would say go to 'Black and Gold' in the town.
Everyone in Kalkan are so friendly, there are so many English people either living there permanently or just going to their villa for the Summer. The Turkish people in the restaurants, bars and shop were lovely.
Highly recommend this villa and Kalkan..... one of our top five places to visit.
We were two of the passengers on Monarch Airlines and Anna was fantastic by contacting us straightaway to see if she could help. Even said the villa was available if we needed to stay on. Brilliant, thank you Anna

Great to hear you both had a lovely holiday!
Yes, the hill next to the harbour is steep- not for high heels! We normally walk through the town centre to avoid it (and to pop for a few more Efes!)
Hope to see you again soon
Fantastic villa in a lovely location
We holidayed in Kalan for the first time this year and chose Villa Zinnia as it seemed to be well located and had the amenities we needed. You never quite know what you will be getting though and to be honest I was a little apprehensive as the transfer minibus pulled up outside Porcini restaurant.
From that point onwards all of my uncertainties flew away - we received a very warm welcome from Deniz who owns the restaurant. He helped us carry our bags down the path to the villa and when we opened up and went in we knew we had made the right choice ! What a lovely place !
The villa was just perfect - secluded from the main road and neighbouring properties with a lovely pool and ottoman platform to put your feet up. Bedrooms are large and with all the storage you need to decant your suitcases etc on arrival. The view over the bay from the second floor bedroom is outstanding both during the day and at night-time.
Wifi worked very well indeed but we didnt venture as far as getting the PS3 out - seemed wrong on holiday somehow !
Location wise the villa is a 15min walk downhill into the town which is fine - walking back up is do-able but I must admit we tended to use the 10tl taxi back as we were usually full of food and cocktails by that time !
We went out and about a bit during the day, but to be honest the villa was such a relaxing place to hang out there were a few days when we just kicked back by the pool and fired up the barbeque !
Can Can supermarket is literally just across the road and supplies most things you will need. The shop is owned by Deniz and his father Jan who are both the most welcoming people you could ever meet. Nothing is too much trouble ! Fantastic family.
Overall we had a super super time in Villa Zinnia and cant wait to visit again :-)
If you considering a holiday in Kalkan do yourself a favour and book here !
Thanks Paul -always love it when our guests are fully satisfied and love Kalkan as much as we do!
Amazing Family Villa and Pool
As one who doesn’t normally write reviews, even though I know I should, I am now writing a review of our fantastic stay in Villa Zinnia, Kalkan, Turkey in August this Year.
What can I say of the whole thing other than it was a fantastic, stress free experience from the start to the end.
Booking the Villa through the owner Anna was a breeze, she was very helpful even though we needed longer than normal and slightly awkward dates. Everything was spelled out to us and several helpful documents were sent to us giving us details of both the Villa and the surrounding area, including surrounding restaurants, things to do.
Travel was arranged be Anna for the transfer from Dalaman Airport to the Villa and this was fantastic, in an air conditioned luxury minibus, which also included bottled water.
Arriving at the Villa late at night didn’t give us the appreciation of what a great place it was as we were tired and just need to rest/sleep. Upon arrival though we became aware of a great welcome package left for us so that we would not need any essentials which was a very thoughtful gesture.
The next morning though we became aware of what a great Villa we were staying at – the views, the rooms and the pool were amazing. The Villa itself was amazing, a great fully equipped modern kitchen/dining room, a comfortable lounge area and three well equipped bathrooms (one on-suite).
The three bedrooms were of a good size, two with large beds and one with two single beds and can I say that the beds were fantastic.
The Villa had air-conditioning throughout which was a must for Turkey in August.
Now I’m a big believer that things can go wrong but it’s the things in place to sort them out that is the most important thing. Well it did as one of the air-con units broke but we contacted the emergency number that was part of the welcome pack and the chaps attended that morning and fixed it straight away.
We had an amazing time in the day relaxing by the great pool and using the Ottoman in the rear garden. At night we walked out to several restaurants close by and had some fabulous food and drink. All of them were great but we liked the Brothers, Aqua, Porcini and Yelken that were within walking distance. We also loved Corriander Restaurant in Kalkan were we had several breakfasts and evening meals.
There is a great little store across the road run by the family that owns Porcini – Deniz & Family which sells everything that you will realistically need and if they don’t they
A wonderful stay at this lovely villa
A very rare five-star review from me for Anna's lovely Villa Zinnia, the perfect choice for a stay in Kalkan. It's conveniently located on the 'Kalamar Road' just behind the Porcini restaurant, a 15-minute walk downhill to the centre of town.
The villa itself is perfect for a relaxing holiday as it is very private - the mature garden shields it from neighbouring properties - and is well-equipped with a great kitchen, satellite TV (no UK channels, though, but several English-language ones such as BBC World, BBC Entertainment and CNN), dishwasher, washing machine, DVD player, wi-fi (of the flaky Turkish kind!) and very effective aircon in all rooms.
The pool, although small, is perfect for cooling off and there is plenty of room on the pool surround for several sunbeds - the ones provided are some of the most comfortable I've known. If you like proper swimming, as I do, the nearby Hotel Elixir has a huge pool and is very happy for you to use it as long as you buy a drink or two. We also visited the gorgeous Regency Hotel, a short walk away, several times.
The local area has several restaurants including the excellent The Brothers, Cafe Aqua and (the over-rated) Cafe Vita and there is a general store just opposite which belongs to the family that owns Porcini - Deniz, his parents and their (to date) four dogs are lovely neighbours. Porcini has TV sports channels where you can watch Premier League matches - and the food's excellent too.
The firm that manages the villa is very efficient - an issue we had with the door lock was fixed within minutes.
All in all, a perfect stay in this gorgeous villa. We'll be back!
Many thanks Ian! We are really glad you enjoyed your holiday and would love to have you back to stay anytime!
