Why Elaine Ketley chose Kalkan

We visited Kalkan looking for an investment property and on the second day feel in love Kalkan and Poppy Villa which had been built that year. We walked throught the front door to 3 blues, the sky, the sea and the infinity pool and that was it. We have never looked back and have been letting the property ever since. We are delighted to say that we have let the villa every year for the whole season and we take great pride in the villa and sharing it with our guests. We are very particular about ours holidays and we adopt our high standards with Poppy Villa. We have not had a dissappointed customer and indeed now have many repeat customers that have visited the villa time and time again. Since purchasing Poppy we now rent the villa adjacent to ours which is Apricot

What makes this villa unique

When we first purchased Poppy we opened the door to see the Deep Blue of the pool, the sea and the sky, a moment we have never forgotten, and one that every customer sees when they rental Poppy.

Lovely Villa - private location

Great Villa with lovely pool and patio area that is not overlooked and having a nice view of the sea and mountains. Local shops very close by and a 10 minute walk into the town. The Villa has everything you need including good air con.

We would return and can recommend to others.

Amazing villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the best villa we have ever rented, it really is home from home, exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean. The pool is very large compared to so many in Kalkan and the location is perfect. Highly recommended. Elaine is so helpful and a real expert on Kalkan.

Yet another fabulouis holiday in Kalkan

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at Poppy Villa mid afternoon and it was everything we had hoped it would be. The view from the pool is stunning looking down into old town Kalkan and across the sea. The villa is large with a nice open plan kitchen and living room area opening up onto the beautiful pool outside. Everything was lovely and clean - the towels and bedding were pristine white. Bottled water was waiting in the water dispenser and a spare was ready at the side.

My partner and I had been to Kalkan for the first time in September 2015 so we were familiar with the area and the local amenities. This time we tried a few different restaurants and loved the Olive Garden which had fantastic food and the staff were attentive but not intrusive.

We were delighted to find the water temperature of the pool to be so warm making it really enjoyable to swim in. Tom came everyday to clean the pool and the outside area. The fruit shop down the road was the best along with the local bakery for bread and other tasty bakes. I can also recommend the local fishmonger where I bought sea bass from and it was delicious. The kitchen is very well equipped so on the occasions I did cook an evening meal I had everything I needed.

We very much enjoyed our two week stay in Poppy Villa. The taxi transfers were arranged for us by the owners and again everything was spot on. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone considering a holiday in this lovely part of Turkey. We hope to return again next year.

PS - I miss the lovely little black and white cat who visited us during our stay.

Execellent villa, everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Great villa, lovely pool, close to food shops, restaurants and beaches. Easy to spend a day around the pool with a BBQ in the evening. Very helpful owner and good communication meant that the holiday ran smoothly.

Enjoyed boat and canoe trips. Daughter did a diving coarse from harbour.

Poppy Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th stay at poppy is already booked, a villa we can thoroughly recommend. The villa is very well maintained and equipped with everything you could wish for. Stunning views, a lovely pool where we enjoy late night swims when the pool is beautifully lit and the water warm. Outside sun loungers, umbrellas and BBQ ensure we have everything we need. The villa is in a lovely location close to the town and harbour near lovely restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. First class service by Elaine & Lorraine who arrange our transfers and answer any questions we may have. We enjoy our walk to and from the villa, Kalkan is hilly but taxis are cheap and plentiful for those evenings when we overindulge! Everything about holidaying here is wonderful and relaxing. Kalkan is beautiful, we adore the locals and the laid back atmosphere. This has been our secret destination that we're sharing with you, so you too can indulge.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing villa. Very spacious, clean and extremely well equipped. Air conditioning a godsend as was the water fountain - cold water always readily available!! Close to Kalkan town centre but always cheap cabs available if you don't want a walk back up the hill - we never bothered - it was one way of using up a few calories after dining in one of the numerous restaurants down by the harbour. Didn't have one bad meal in two weeks. Tom (pool man - daily visit) and Maria (cleaned the villa midway through our stay) were friendly but not at all intrusive. Pool is a great size and very clean. Couldn't fault anything. We enjoyed ourselves so much have just booked for 2015!

Poppy Villa is situated in the olive groves overlooking the picturesque, unspoilt town of Kalkan with its fine harbour, marina and myriad of tiny streets, featuring traditional carpet shops, antique shops, bazaars, restaurants and roof-top bars. The beauty of Poppy Villa is that everything is in close walking distance.

Decide which of the 140 Restaurants to visit in Kalkan. After dinner wonder through the cobble streets which house an array of shopping opportunities or head for the beautiful harbour. Whatever you do Poppy Villa is the perfect place to stay in Luxury.

A boat trip from the harbour around Kalkan Bay is a must on your holiday. Take the whole day to enjoy Kalkan from the water, stop at the Turquoise Blue Bays, try some fishing from the Boat, take in the Beautiful Sunshine and enjoy some snokelling prior to your lunch served by the Captain, all of which has been freshly prepared and cooked on the boat. A glass of chilled white wine or a beer, make lunch slip down nicely, then its off to another cove for a swim or snooze. We can organise these trips for you. Just simply ask

Hire a car and discover the wonders of the beautiful coast.

Saklikent Gorge. Beyond Tlos, Saklikent is a spectacular gorge cut into the Akdaglar mountains. 18 km long, the sides are so deep and steep that no sun penetrates, so the water always remains icy cold. Access to the start of the gorge is along a wooden boardwalk suspended above the water, then after crossing the river, it is fairly straightforward to walk

Other Activities: jet skiing
