Overlooking Kalamar Bay, the views from Villa Manzara are spectacular. It is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with 2 lounges. Additionally, there are 3 dining terraces, giving you the freedom to choose how and where you would like your group to dine. The villa is of exceptional quality with travertine marble terraces, private pool with large sunbathing area, contemporary furnishings and high quality appliances.
The views are stunning from every floor, window and balcony of the villa and with less than a 5 min walk from the front door to the sea, you will struggle to decide whether to dive in, or hop on a jet ski. If you are keen on nature and fancy rambling, the villa is by the Lycian Way which provides miles of picturesque walking trails where you can take in the ancient sites and flora and fauna of the region. Our villa is maintained by an English/Turkish company, who keep our home in tip top condition. Our pool man comes twice a day to ensure the sun umbrellas are up and the pool area is exactly how you would expect it. We provide a Turkish mobile phone with all useful telephone numbers for our agent, taxis, restaurants, gulet cruises as well as the doctor and the dentist.

VILLA MANZARA LOCATION:
The sea is less than 5 mins walk from Villa Manzara. It is wonderful to take a dip first thing in the morning when the sea is usually like a millpond. There are 2 beach clubs, the Kalamar Beach Club with scuba diving, jet skis, water skiing etc, or the relaxing adult only Kulube Hotel Beach Club. The area also has a number of restaurants and two small supermarkets, both will deliver food.
Villa Manzara is on is a cul-de-sac in Kalamar Bay and as such makes for a very peaceful location.
The centre of Kalkan is 5 min by car or local dolmus bus. However, locally there are some fabulous restaurants.
As well as the local beach and beach clubs the famous 18km Patara Beach is a 10 min drive away. Kaputas Beach, equally famous in many publicity photos of Turkey, is also a 10 min drive. Both beaches and the local town of Kas, and Fethiye farther afield can be reached by bus.
SPECIAL INTEREST HOLIDAYS:
Kalkan and the surrounding areas have an abundance of ancient historical sites such as Xanthos and Patara. It is an ideal place to come to for walking/hiking holidays (all walks on the Lycian Way are clearly marked). The gorge at Saklikent provides another area for walking, river tubing or rafting. For those who love a real adventure, there is paragliding from the top of the mountain in Kas, and as well as mountain biking and quad biking nearby.
The villages surrounding Kalkan are well worth seeing on a bike ride, although the hills are not for the faint hearted! Some local villages also have wonderful restaurants with locally cooked specialities. They have stunning views across both Kalkan and Patara. There really is no better place to dine and watch the sunset!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, this is our home. We are not part of a large company. Our interest is in ensuring you have everything at your disposal as we have when we are there. We love Kalkan and adore Villa Manzara. We want you to come to love our home as much as we do.
