Villa in Komurluk, Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Fantastic Location; just a few minutes walk to the Beach Clubs, 10 minutes from harbour and town
Villa Mercan is situated in Komurluk which is known locally as the most prestigious and exclusive area of Kalkan, with breath taking and uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean Sea and Turquoise Coastline.
Offering stunning sunsets; the harbour and lights of Kalkan also give a spectacular evening view from Villa Mercan and the extensive Ottoman cushioned seating area on the Roof Terrace.
Close to the historic old town and the abundance of restaurants, bars and shops to tempt all. The Beach Clubs are also close by, with Palm Beach Club just 100 metres away.
Whilst Kalkan is an extremely safe place for adults and children alike, Villa Mercan is fully alarmed for additional peace of mind.

Second to none outstanding property
We had a fabulous holiday the villa was outstanding hard to pick fault maybe mention the many steps access to the villa but it didn't really bother us its just what it is. The villa had every superb luxury you could imagine I highly recommend this villa to other holiday makers. Kalkan was lovely lots of restaurants and great food perhaps a little quiet but this was the month of May so to be expected There is no doubt it is a beautiful place and the people are wonderful. We had reservation about travelling to Turkey but there really was no need to have worried, the whole experience contributed to one of the best holidays I have ever had we certainly want to return.
We are delighted you and your family had a wonderful holiday... and appreciate such a lovely review.
We look forward to welcoming you back to holiday at Villa Mercan in the near future.
Helen & Alan
We had 13 nights in Villa Mercan and were joined by a nice mix of friends for the second week. The villa is the perfect spot for getting the absolute best from Kalkan. The heart of the town is just 10 minutes walk along a lovely coastal path or 3 minutes in a taxi, which costs a mere £2. Kalkan has an abundant supply of really great authentic restaurants all within striking distance. The villa itself has pretty unrivaled views of Kalkan bay and is tucked into a hillside, affording a good deal of privacy and peace. The organisation and logistics were seamless with Helen taking care of all arrangements for us. The villa is clean and tidy with ample space for relaxing. It would suit a large family as much as a collective of couples. The facilities there are superb with everything you could possibly need provided. The pool area lends itself perfectly to just chilling in the afternoon sun with a beer or cocktail and cooling down with regular dips in the cute infinity pool, which is in immaculate condition and is cleaned daily. When it gets too hot during the day, there is a nice sheltered canopy on the roof terrace above some low bench seating, and a roof top jacuzzi. We tended to eat a large breakfast at the villa, possibly have a light lunch or snack, then dine out every evening on one of Kalkan's many brilliant and very good value restaurants. Everyone in town seems to know Villa Mercan and the local agent knows everyone in town so you will never be short of a safety net or an essential contact to get something organised. We took a boat trip from the harbour on our own bespoke itinerary and explored a fabulous picturesque cave. Kalkan is a lovely spot, very affordable and with friendly, welcoming people. It is clear to us that Villa Mercan is one of the prime accommodation choices. A stunning location.
An absolutely stunning property
We came to Kalkan last year and didn't think we could better our experience but oh my goodness, how wrong could we be. Villa Mercan was beautiful and in a beautiful location. It offered everything that we could possibly want from a holiday home.
The infinity pool was stunning and the seating area at the top of the building was brilliant end for a night out.
All the rooms had floor to ceiling windows with stunning views and en suite facilities.
I am sure we will make a return visit.
Rock star villa, amazing
Villa Mercan in Kalkan is as fabulous as it looks on the pictures. Loved using the roof top Jacuzzi in the morning and last thing at night sipping some fizz. The beds are comfy and the walk-in showers are spacious and unlike some villas the water pressure is good and the temperature great if you need a hot shower. The location is great as well. There are a few steps to negotiate in the villa as it is on four levels, however this is a great way to burn off those extra calories accumulated from the amazing restaurants in Kalkan. The Palm Beach club is just at the bottom of the steps to access the villa from the bottom road and you can swim in the sea here, get a boat taxi or eat in their restaurant. Also from here you can walk into town and it takes about 15 minutes. As this is such a great location there are a few more villas surrounding the plot, but this is typical in Kormuluk and is to be expected because it has the best views in Kalkan. I can highly recommend this villa and Helen (the owner) who looked after the booking and arranged our pick ups from the airport. She is very helpful and she has an on site agent Ibo to take care of any issues. Than you Helen and Alan for our perfect 10 days!
When you work hard all year you deserve a break that rewards you.
However, this property, it's location and level of style and luxury exceed expectations! The owners and the process were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Book with confidence. Safe, secure and with a smile.
Reward yourself next holiday, I'm sure you've deserved it.
Thank you so much, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Mercan and that we could be of help to you. We look forward to you staying again in the near future.
Fabulous villa , fabulous views , fabulous place
We had a fantastic week , villa had everything we needed and more , difficult to tear ourselves away to enjoy the area. Views to die for , close enough to town but taxis easy to arrange . Lots of steps but worth it . Every bedroom as a great view so no arguing about who gets what bedroom, lovely sun deck, seating area and jacuzzi at the top , great for late night drinking and relaxing . Can't recommend highly enough , just go .
Kalkan is also a really lovely place . So many places to eat and drink and easy to get around with private taxis and private boats to snorkel . We will hopefully return . Thank you for sharing your home .
Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed what Villa Mercan and Kalkan offers. Hope to welcome you back again in the near future.
