About Sarah Richards

Sarah & Anton have owned the Sun Elite 2 since 2008. We live and work in Nottinghamshire and have two children Oliver and Alice.

Sarah Richards purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sarah Richards chose Kalkan

We made our first visit to Turkey (our first holiday together) in 1988 to a small fishing village called Fethyie (it has grown rapidly since this time and small is no longer an accurate description!) really before tourism had arrived but we loved Turkey and its people and have visited many areas of Turkey since then. We fell in love with Kalkan when we visited in 2007 so much so we purchased our apartment in 2008 and now regard it as our second home. Kalkan really captures your heart and has so much to offer from its stunning scenery to its enchanting roof top terrace restaurants and winding cobbled streets. The Turkish people are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Kalkan has been described as Turkey's best kept secret with good reason.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is ideally situated within easy walking distance of the bars and shops but offers daytime peace and quiet to relax. It has a good sized pool with plenty of sunbeds for everyone!

Whether you enjoy beaches, activities ( of which there are a whole range) or exploring the areas history Kalkan and its surrounding area really does have something for everyone!

A choice of boat trips can be booked from the harbour or through one of the tour companies in the town, take a moonlight cruise with BBQ, hire a private boat and discover the many bays or go mackerel fishing! discover the sunken city of Kekova, or cruise the coastline with numerous swim stops and lunch on board and even a mud bath! There are many excursions which you can book locally including canoeing, horseriding, visits to archaelogical sites or paragliding. An experience not to be missed in Turkey is a visit to the turkish bath, preferably early on in your holiday to prepare for a great sun tan!
