Amazing villa in a beautiful town
We have just returned from a weeks stay at Kalkan Retreat and can't stress enough how much of an amazing place this villa is. Everything was perfect and it truly has been a holiday to remember. We hope to return in 2020. Thank you for sharing your amazing villa with us.
Lovely place but a couple of issues!
On arrival at Kalkan we could not locate the villa because the name was given as, No. 6
Turquoise Villas, and nobody locally, including the local restaurant owners, knew such a place. They both directed us to a 'Villa Turquoise' but that was occupied! We tried to contact the owner via telephone and email but got no reply. After 4 hours of searching we called HomeAway, who where excellent but we spent £50 on phone calls! Then we did get a what's app reply from the owners who gave us a phone number for the management company - who we found to be excellent. They gave us the correct name for the villa which is 'Kalkan Retreat'. We located it within two minutes and they enabled access. They did not meet us though but we read the information provided with the villa on arrival. The villa itself was excellent and provided very comfortable, well equipped accommodation and a very good welcome pack.
On our sixth night at 4.15 am we were woken by an attempted break in. Some damage was caused to the kitchen door and adjacent wall but they were scared off by my husband. We reported this to the management company who said not to worry about the damage as they would deal with that but also said we should be sure to set the burglar alarm each night. There was no mention of this in the information pack, no code provided for the alarm and we were leaving that day anyway. Thankfully we had made sure that all windows and doors were secured throughout our stay, both day and night.
Overall we had a fantastic family holiday, loved the area, the views, the food and we would certainly visit again. Our rating would be 8 out of 10 but would have been 10 out of 10 if the correct villa name had been provided and the number for the management company had been supplied in advance.
Perfect home away from home
This house was absolutely perfect for us, lots of space, plenty of sunbeds, was immaculate throughout and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could need. Also every staff member we dealt with from the cleaners to the welcome staff were lovely and in typical Kalkan style they were eager to do anything they could to make our stay perfect, which it was. We will definitely be returning and have already recommended to friends.
Wonderful villa, wonderful place x
Many times in Kalkan, 2nd time in this villa which is beautiful. Thank you to Pauline yet again, will be back next year x
A beautiful quiet villa with outstanding sea views over to the islands.
We were celebrating my 60th birthday and my husband and adult children and partners got together for a holiday in Kalkan.
The villas was ideal. There was 7 of us and we had 4 beautiful bedrooms with en suites. The villa had so many sitting and eating areas. We used to meet for pre dinner cocktails on the roof terrace before dinner by the pool. The kitchen was so well
stocked, there was nothing that we needed that wasn't in the kitchen. Including the dish washer which helped with regards to arguments to whose turn it was to do the dishes...
We played table tennis, swam all the time in the pool and the maintenance man came in every morning to make sure it was cleaned. The bins in each room was emptied
by the maintenance team daily and one big clean during the week we were there. We had bread delivered each morning as well. The furnishings were of a very high standard.
The high light of the week with regards to trips was a private day out on the yacht Anil with Ali the skipper with his teenage daughter Lucy and chef, anchor man Jimmy. We had such a good trip and swam with the turtles in the bay. The standard of food was amazing It was £200 for the day for us all.
The 5 girls (all together) had a Turkish massage, scrub at La Sera (just up the road nearly opposite Cafe Vita) which we really enjoyed. we negotiated the cost and paid 450Tl . 90Tl each.
We also went canoeing again a private trip that cost £27 each . all day and canoed 15kms. It was hard work and you need a degree of fitness. I would not recommend for young children under 10 as the adult in the canoe would have to work very hard, you really need two adults working together. We also had one capsize and the water was running quite fast. A mud bath during the trip was required as well. It was great fun but exhausting for the older members of the group....
We all visited Yali beach club for a morning and had a drink and stayed for about 4 hours and cost just over £5 each. It was quiet lovely position to watch the yachts going in and out of the harbour and rafts to swim to and sunbath on.. The younger members had been to Kalamar Beach club as well but preferred the Yali beach club. 30KL taxi away.
Our taxi driver Ercan was the best, we whats app him and he was always there even with short notice and would take all 7 of us, none of the other taxi companies would.
Next time I would take £ sterling as took Turkish Lira but best rate in sterling and easy to exchange.
Fabulous villa in perfect location
We loved our holiday at Kalkan Retreat which was a spacious, modern, immaculately clean and well-equipped villa. The location in a quiet street at the edge of town was perfect for us. We could easily walk to the fabulous beach club for sea swimming and sunbathing and a few minutes away was a selection of great restaurants and small supermarkets. The main town was an easy 15 min walk with plenty of cheap taxis available to get home. We received fantastic help from the local representatives to organise daily bread delivery, a boat trip and a meze bbq delivered. Daily visits from housekeepers and pool meant the villa was always clean and tidy. We couldnt fault anything about our holiday and are grateful to Pauline and family for their help as well as the larger Korsan family.
Thank you very much for the review. We hope we will be able to welcome you back in the future!

Den nærmeste lufthavn er Dalaman (1. 5 timer overførsel), men flyvninger er også tilgængelige til Antalya (3 timer overførsel). Der er direkte fly til Dalaman fra mange britiske lufthavne, herunder British Airways og EasyJet fly fra Gatwick. Overførsler kan arrangeres gennem ejerne. Biludlejning er ikke inkluderet, og er ikke afgørende, selv om det er muligt at arrangere biludlejning gennem ejerne, hvis det ønskes. Taxaer er let tilgængelige.
Kalamar Bay er vidunderligt for mennesker på udkig efter fred og ro og giver den ideelle base for at udforske nogle af Tyrkiets fineste kulturarv i Lycian regionen. Kalkan er kun 15 minutters gang væk eller en 3 minutters taxatur. Steder at besøge inden for rækkevidde i bil, er den Lycian Way, Saklikent Gorge, Kekova sunkne by, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon og den storslåede strand Patara. Det er muligt at opleve en Hamam eller andre afslappende spa-behandlinger inden for en kort gåtur fra villaen.
På det sydvestlige hjørne af den tyrkiske kyst (tyrkise kyst) ligger et af de smukkeste og mest uspolerede områder af Middelhavet. Kalkan var engang besat af den græske osmannerne, og deres arv har efterladt en gammel by fuld af karakter. Det har stejle brostensbelagte gader, der snor sig ned mod havnen og de lokale er usædvanligt venlige.
I løbet af dagen Kalkan er næsten afvæbnende laid-back, som besøgende vælger at nyde det krystalklare vand lapning Lycian kyst. Den offentlige strand ved siden af Kalkan havn blev for nylig udvidet og er mere end tilstrækkelige til svømning og solbadning. Men du vælger at tilbringe din dag, ingen kan modstå at være tilbage i Kalkan i aften, for sort og kvalitet af spisesteder på tilbud er ganske forbløffende for sådan en kompakt by. Der er små restauranter, der er så lav nøgle, at mange besøgende aldrig mærke til dem; bare stedet at nyde lækker og ægte lokale madlavning. Magiske omgivelser, et strejf af afslappet raffinement og en tilsyneladende grænseløs række steder at udforske gøre Kalkan uimodståelig. Restauranterne i Kalkan tilbyder en usædvanlig høj standard af mad og service, nogle af de bedste forberedt og friskeste fødevarer, vi har smagt på vores verdensomspændende rejser. Mange restauranter har romantiske tagterrasser kigger ud over Kalkan. At spise ude er fremragende værdi og de tyrkiske vine er overraskende god. Den smukke brostensbelagte gader i den gamle bydel er en Aladdins hule med en overflod af butikker, der sælger tøj, smykker, tasker, gaver, etc. Der er også et ugentligt marked på en torsdag. Der er en række barer, der forbliver åben gennem de små timer og spille musik, men ingen højt natklubber.
