About Pippa Leggate

David & Pippa Leggate.

We live in England with our two dogs, but travel regularly with our work and visiting our family overseas. Southern Turkey has become a favourite destination for us all over many years, reflecting our enjoyment of it's fascinating culture, hospitable people, Mediterranean climate and beautiful coastline with it's terrific range of water sports. As keen sailors, Turkey has simply been our favourite country for all that it offers.

Pippa Leggate purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pippa Leggate chose Kalkan

We love Kalkan for it's stunning sea views, charming ambience, relaxed sophistication, range of excellent restaurants and the variety of sea sports available. It is accessible, but appeals especially to those discerning individuals of all ages who enjoy good living and the opportunity to escape to the Turquoise Turkish Coast with all that it offers during the different seasons of the year.

A place close to my heart

  • 5 of 5

As always, what a wonderful stay in Kalkan. A place close to my heart. This is my 4th time staying in Villa K and every time it feels like it gets better and better. The villa is kitted out with everything we needed to make our stay a comfortable one without loosing a warm homely feeling.

The rooftop views at sunset are one of my all time favourite places to. A truly magical and reflective location.

The owner of the property goes out of their way to think of what the villa needs - and then some! Everything is well - maintened and cared for.

Going to Kalkan Beach club for an afternoon dip is a must - along with a iced coffee! If you go for an early morning swim, you may be in luck to see a turtle or 2! Taking out a day boat with Deniz is also an unmissable experience, we spent the whole day swimming with turtles in quiet, secluded bays!

I have no doubt that I’ll be back!

Amazing property in a fantastic place.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. 3 minutes walk from Kalkan beach Club. Our 3 teenage boys could have their independence within a reasonable distance from us!

The villa is well equipped with everything you need. The gardens and pool are cleaned daily by Irfan who will deliver bread every morning if asked. Karyn Rutherford who runs the villa is an absolute gem. This was our first time to Turkey and she made everything possible, no job too little or too big.

Kalkan is a 15 minute sea taxi ride away or 10 minutes in ordinary taxi.

Do not hesitate to book this property, definitely value for money!! The boys each had their own room with en-suite and a balcony.

A fantastic villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very clean, modern and extremely well equipped and a home from home. A great amount of space inside and out so that everyone was able to chill. The location in Kisla is quiet but with easy access to the beach and Kalkan town by car or water taxi. Support from the owner and her representative was excellent and made the stay so easy.

Beautiful view from a lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after midnight to find food and drinks to keep us going along with a very clean and well furnished villa. The beds were very comfortable and the showers provided a plentiful supply of hot water. A separate water cooler is a great idea,. though there is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking the tap water but of course it's not cold. It is certainly a very fine villa bordering on luxury. The sun beds are great quality with comfortable cushioning. There is plenty of helpful information and the TV system was most welcome to the teen boy.

The beach club so near is a real plus where the sun loungers are free the water is cool and you can just dive straight in off the pontoon.

There are so many restaurants in Kalkan providing excellent food that it is almost impossible to go wrong. It is worth a trip up to Adam's Place where you can watch the sunset over the sea, a great view.

we had 2 excellent relaxing weeks in Sunny Kislar.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a wonderful week at this beautiful villa in Kalkan.

After seeing photos online and hearing recommendations from friends, I decided to book a holiday myself. I was not disappointed.

The owners were in touch immediately and the booking was smooth. A transfer was arranged and we were in touch with Karyn, who managed the villa who gave us all the details we needed prior to our arrival.

The villa was exactly as described, beautiful pool, breathtaking views and everything you would need for a home away from home. The owners have thought of everything: a mobile phone to use during your stay, a welcome pack detailing all the sights, a music system, books to read, daily bread deliveries, sunhats, you name it, they have it.

The villa was sparkling clean and we were welcomed on arrival and shown around. People were then in touch during our stay to see if they could be of any help. Attentive and welcoming without being intrusive.

This was indicative of the service throughout Kalkan. Everywhere we went people were friendly and welcoming and made us feel right at home. We ventured to the Thursday market, a hamman in town, Kalkan Beach Club and an array of restaurants and shops in Kalkan itself. The food was superb, the weather amazing and the welcome and hospitality from the people of Kalkan simply wonderful.

Sometimes self-catering can mean additional stress, whereby you have to stock up on essentials for your stay to make the accommodation run as a home. With this villa, the attention to the villa made us feel as though we lived there and we had everything we needed from day one, allowing us to have a truly relaxing holiday and enjoy all the delights of Kalkan. We hope to return next year and would highly recommend the villa to anyone looking for a relaxing escape.

Thank you for enabling us to have a truly relaxing break.

Villa Kaplumbaga is approx. 300m from the sea. Kalkan Beach Club and The Mahal Beach Club are just a few minutes walk down from the villa. They all have restaurants and operate a water taxi service to Kalkan Harbour. Kalkan has a pleasant pebbly beach.

Within easy reach are Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach, both of which are sandy and gently sloping. Details are available in the villa.


Dalaman Airport is some 1 hour 45 minutes drive. Transfers to and from can be arranged. Many charter and scheduled airlines fly directly from UK airports.

Car hire is not necessary, but can be arranged if needed, to see the sights further away.


The centre of Kalkan takes 3/5 minutes by taxi. All Kalkan is hilly, so the walk will take about 25 minutes. Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and there are many historical sites close-by to visit. The ruins of Patara, still being excavated, and Xanthos, formerly the capital city of Lycia are a 30 minute drive.

Further Details:

Kalkan is sophisticated with a multitude of excellent harbour and roof top restaurants offering a high standard of culinary delights, together with a good selection of atmospheric blues and jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellers, carpets, clothing and leather bags. The narrow streets of the old town are ideal for an evening stroll. There are two banks with cash dispensers, as well the Post Office which usually offers the best exchange rate.
