About Ian

Christine and I live in Ainsdale near Southport. We have two sons and 5 grandchildren who all love to visit the apartment and Kalkan. We are both retired and spend as much time as possible at the apartment, but trying to achieve a good balance between our own occupation and letting periods is always a problem!. We have lived and worked in the Middle and Far East for over 23 years so we have taken holidays in many beautiful places, but for us Kalkan is the ideal mix of stunning inland scenery and a really interesting coastline. Not to mention the almost overwhelming choice of restaurants!

Ian purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ian chose Lycian and Turquoise Coast

We first stayed at Saneil complex in 2005 in a friends apartment and immediately fell in love with the place. This was our first visit to the Torquiose Coast of Turkey, only ever visiting Istanbul once before. We viewed several other apartment complexes over the next few weeks but kept coming back to Saneil. Having seen all other complexes we felt that this one was the best for – position – build quality – facilities.

What makes this apartment unique

Being south facing, the apartment enjoys uninterupted sunshine, and has fantastic view over Kalkan and Kalamar bays. Being at the western end of the complex next to the olive groves, we do not have anyone overlooking us , but being on the first floor gives us the benefit of those great views .

Guestbook comments from the owner

September 2008 - we had a fantastic time in Kalkan thank you. The apartment was really lovely with amazing views, we felt we had the best spot in the town! The team on site were incredibly friendly and helpful and the Enes team were also very professional which helped make the holiday go very smoothly. We thought Kalkan itself was a great little place, and the people there so friendly. The weather was very hot, but it was lovely to come back to the pool area and relax in the cool apartment! Think you’ve got a fab apartment there J. Thanks again Carolyn. May 2008.

June 2010 - Just to say that we've had a fantastic week; we really loved the apartment and views from the balcony. All the information and leaflets/tips that you have put together really came in handy and helped us decide what we were going to do during our stay. I could go on and on.... Thanks for all your help with everything. Melanie and Elliot.

Kalkan has six popular beach clubs (3 of which are reached by shuttle from the harbour), making it easy to enjoy sea bathing. These are wonderful paved platform terraces and gardens cut into the bottom of the mountainside, with ladders going into the sea. They offer everything from swimming and sunbathing to water sports and restaurant/bar facilities, with sunbed and umbrellas for hire. The beach clubs across the bay have free water taxi service that you can pick up in the harbour.


Dalaman is the nearest airport to Kalkan and is approx 1 hour 30 mins away. Taxi/mini-bus transfers or car hire can be arranged for guests. Car hire is not essential in Kalkan as local transport (dolmus) is both plentiful and cheap. All the local tourist beauty spots are serviced by the dolmus which leave from the village bus station. Taxis are also cheap and plentiful.

Car hire is available from Abitravel or Enes Rent a Car.


The apartment is a 15 minute walk (downhill) away from Kalkan village centre. The next nearest town is Kas, approx 30km away. Hire a car or take advantage of the excellent local taxi service or Dolmus (bus) to visit the stunning sandy beaches at Patara (18km) or Kaputas (6km). Further afield, around an hours drive, are the world famous lagoon beach at Olu Deniz and the lovely harbour town of Fethiye.

Further Details:

Kalkan by day is fun.

The town centre of Kalkan becomes surprisingly empty during the day as guests set off for daytime activities. Popular activities include beach-going, relaxing at beach clubs or swimming pools, water sports, exploring the ancient lands around Kalkan, and boat and gulet trips. Don't forget to stop by Kalkan's Thursday market for some great bargains. The Turquoise Coast and Kalkan area. This is probably the easiest area of Turkey to get excited about. From Marmaris to Antalya the coastline is gorgeous, the weather is reliably excellent and there are lots of things to do and see. The Turquoise Coast at its finest has become the destination of first choice for many first time and repeat visitors to Turkey. Turquoise seas and pine-clad mountains make this one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world. Combine this with a lovely climate and friendly people and you have an unbeatable combination for the perfect holiday. Kalkan – a small peaceful resort and fishing village with immense charm, has changed little over the years and offers a taste of traditional Turkish life. The narrow cobbled streets wind down through the village of whitewashed houses, shops, and restaurants until the small harbour is reached. More sophisticated than the usual resort town, Kalkan appeals to travellers looking for more than a ‘sun and sea’ holiday. The town itself is full of quality restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops selling hand-made goods. In the evening the local restaurants come alive, and the rooftop terraces provide a perfect setting from which to admire the beautiful scenery. Many places of natural beauty and historical interest - Lycian Way, Saklikent Gorge, Kekova sunken city, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, are all within easy reach. The delights of the Xanthos valley are 20 minutes away to the west, and include the 15km of sand at Patara as well as the Lycian ruins scattered between Tlos and the coast.

Stunning setting, beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Olive Grove. The owners couldn't have been more helpful when it came to organising travel, transfers, car hire etc and provided a really comprehensive handbook on the apartment, the resort and surrounding areas. The apartment itself is just beautiful. Very clean, very well equipped and very homely with lots of Turkish furnishings. There's a large balcony with plenty of space for dining, relaxing and drying off your beach stuff. The views across Kalkan and Kalamar bays are stunning - you can't help but sit on the balcony and just admire the view. There's an extendable awning which means you can have some shade when it gets too hot.

We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and the kids had great fun in it. It was never overcrowded and you have allocated sunbeds and umbrellas so there's always plenty of space. The pool area was clean and very well maintained.

This was our second holiday in Kalkan and we were so pleased to be back. The shops, restaurants and beach parks were great - everyone so helpful and friendly. We hired a car which allowed us to explore the area and get some respite from the heat in the mountains. The owners provided lots of recommendations about where to go and what to eat.

We'll definitely be coming back!

Very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Great views of both bays

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Enjoyed the large pool which we had to ourselves most of the time. The owners have thoughtfully provided pool towels, water cooler and a fully equipped kitchen. There were great views from all rooms and we enjoyed sitting on the comfortable balcony for breakfast and early evening. Highly recommend this apartment and Kalkan.

Absolutely fabulous apartment, superb location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this delightful apartment, we thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous complex and stunning views. The apartment is modern and stylishly appointed throughout and the owners, Christine and Ian, have literally thought of everything - it is extremely well equipped.

We followed their restaurant recommendations and found them all to be spot on. The complex is very well attended to, the pool is glorious and the frequency of the cleaning staff is a real bonus. All genuinely helpful.

It is truly a gem.

A perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

As seasoned visitors to Kalkan we were not disappointed with the Olive Grove apartment. The complex is situated in a peaceful area above the town and the views and evening breeze make it very special. Comfortably furnished, thoroughly equipped and spotlessly clean it was perfect for our 12 day holiday. There is a large swimming pool and on the days we 'stayed home' we had it mostly to ourselves.The complex manager, Seco and his staff looked after us very well and introduced us to a lovely local restaurant as an alternative to traveling into town.

A very pleasant stay....... We will be back.

There is only one word to describe the apartment, location, and facilities - fabulous! The Olive Grove was exactly as described, little extras included hairdryers, straighteners, pool/beach towels, adaptors, books and dvd's and a welcome pack on arrival. This complex is beautifully maintained, a wonderful freshwater 25 mtre pool which most of the time we had to ourselves. Four designated sunbeds and two parasols. Views to die for from the balcony, an awning to sheild from the sun if needed/wanted. The owner went out of his way to be helpful and offered much advice. Arranged taxis on arrival and we were able to pay by credit card once in Kalkan in English pounds. We experienced a mini heatwave so tended to laze by the pool, a few steps back to the apartment which was efficiently airconditioned, and back to the pool. Cocktails and breakfast on the balcony. We did visit the market and into town a few times and ate at Aubergine and The Olive Tree. In the evenings we just went to the abundance of local restaurants - all excellent and the Turkish people are a delight. All in all a fantastic holiday. Just be aware it is quite hilly - build in £3 or £4 to get a taxi back up to the complex!

Owner's Response: Jane- this review is so useful to prospective guests when they are evaluating whether to stay with us or not. They get an honest appraisal of what to expect, both in the apartment and on the complex. It also lets us know that the 'holiday package' (car hire/transfers-advice on trips - restaurant information etc.) that we provide is well received. Thank you for your comments. Chris and Ian
