This is a magical place… the very special location and palatial accommodation aside; there is a deep sense of wellbeing and serenity as you relax into a stay here. Perhaps it is the connection with the sea, sky and mountains that is such a big part of your consciousness during a stay at this villa, or the expansive and beautiful gardens that extend via a walkway down to the sea, but your memories of this place will last long after you are bid farewell by the people charged to ensure an unforgettable holiday.
The Glass House is in our opinion one of the finest private villas on the Turkish Mediterranean and one of a very small number that have sea access and a private jetty/ bathing platform. It has been the venue for extended family holidays, grand weddings and spectacular parties… even Bond has been a visitor here, but I'm afraid, much as I would like to, we are not allowed to tell you which 007 it was. If real luxury is about space, comfort and choices, then the appeal of the Glass House is clear, it accommodates just 8 guests in 4 guest suites, yet offers two swimming pools, and a multitude of beautiful spaces in which to relax, dine, and have fun. Even the dining table accommodates 14 guests, just in case you would like to entertain.
In designing the Glass House, the architects brief was to provide a strong connection with the beautiful environment in which the villa sits, and this has been achieved to spectacular effect. The views and changes in light as day turns to evening are incredible throughout the property and grounds.
Good interior design is subjective, but we think the care, attention to detail and good taste that the owner has brought to The Glass House further enhances the experience of staying there. Art pieces, antiques and a mix of contemporary and classic furnishings work beautifully together to provide very comfortable, and exciting spaces, many of which connect with pool terraces through floor to ceiling sliding glass doors.
Dusk reveals the very clever and atmospheric lighting throughout the villa grounds and terraces. It signals a distinct change in mood and feels like the perfect time to reach for a celebratory drink. As for dinner plans, it will be hard to drag yourself away, but if it is too much to bear we will bring Kalkan's fine dining to you. It's all part of the concierge service for our guests at The Glass House.
Private VIP airport transfers, a welcome hamper offering some carefully chosen tastes of Turkey, chilled champagne and the services of our guest services staff are included, and a whole host of other services are available on a chargeable basis (paid in resort). A menu of water sports, made available from the villa Jetty, a Spa menu of in villa treatments, a private chef… in fact whatever your heart desires, if it is feasible we will make it happen.
Whether it is a special occasion, an indulgent holiday with friends or family or an unforgettable wedding celebration, this extraordinary holiday villa is ready to welcome you as our guests in 2017.
