Peaceful Patara View House is a four-bedroom stone-built gem in the sleepy village of Uzumlu on Turkey’s glistening Mediterranean coast. The rustic-looking villa boasts panoramic views of sandy Patara Beach, stretching across the coastline for about 12km and is surrounded by half an acre of natural grounds as well as forests lined with pine trees for a private, secluded and tranquil stay.

With wooden shutters and its tree surrounds, the family-friendly villa elegantly blends into the countryside. You’ll perhaps feel like you’re staying in a tree house rather than a holiday home. The terrace is lined with comfy cushioned sun loungers, and there are plenty of shaded grassy spots for curling up with your favourite holiday read while children play alongside you. The pool has a Jacuzzi section so you can relax with jets massaging your body while you take in the stunning rural views.

The villa is split into two equally spacious and stylish sections. On the first floor, there’s a fully-equipped kitchen, large sitting room with banquette-style seating scattered with cushions and two bedrooms – a double with an en-suite and a twin room. The kitchen leads onto a balcony with a table and chairs for enjoying dinner with the magical sunsets. On the ground floor, there are two more bedrooms – a double and a twin both with en-suite shower rooms – each with a separate entrance from outside.

With two hammocks in the garden too, alongside a shaded kiosk with a barbeque, professional table football and table tennis, there’s much to keep you occupied. For when you’d like to eat out or explore more of the beautiful surrounds, there are local restaurants, markets and wineries all within a short drive, as well as charming Uzumlu and Islamlar village centres. The lively town of Kalkan with its harbourside restaurants and eclectic mix of Greek and Turkish architecture is also 18km away.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Being in a natural setting you’re more likely to come across local wildlife including wild tortoises and a host of other things, however the villa is regularly cleaned and treated for insects and not so welcome pests.

Patara View House is in the charming village of Uzumlu near Islamlar on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. It’s 18km from lively Kalkan and has the majestic pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains as backdrop. The quiet area is dotted with charming traditional Turkish houses and green meadows with grazing sheep and is known for its wineries producing excellent wines. Due to it's position a car is essential.

If you drive into Kalkan centre, there’s an exquisite harbour dotted with classic wooden boats and there are waterfront restaurants and a beautiful and historic old town which extends back from the sea. Wander the streets with houses draped in brightly coloured bougainvillaea flowers or dine on a roof terrace restaurant with spectacular views of the town. There are also plenty of swimming beaches in Kalkan and Turkish Baths for a relaxing end-of-the-day massage or body scrub.

To immerse yourself in the rich history of this charming part of Turkey, you can visit the Lycian Ruins at Patara where it is said democracy originates and is also believed to the the birthpalce of St Nicholas. Venturing furthering afield you can take a boat trip to the small island of Kekova where you can snorkel and explore the part sunken ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the 2nd century.
For outdoor adventurers, the dramatic Taurus Mountains with deeply cut valleys and canyons are an ideal place to hike. You could also join the popular Lycian Way – a long-distance footpath that takes you around the coast. The route stops at great sites, many Lycian, including a Roman Aquaduct . For even more sites and things to do, the bohemian town of Kas is a 30-40 minute drive, while the resort town of Fethiye is a one-hour drive away.

Kalkan

Kalkan has become boutique resorts, with cobbled streets and converted Greek houses, which belonged to the Greek merchants before the exchange of population in the 1920’s. Once quiet fishing harbours these days you are more likely to see traditional wooden gulets taking tourists to soak up rays on the sparkling turquoise Mediterranean. A boat trip is a must do, from the boat you can snorkel and usually a delicious lunch is prepared on board. Keen walkers should check out the Lycian way for designated walking paths in the area.

You cannot come to this area without spending  some time exploring the many Lycian sights, such as Xanthos, Patara, Myra or the sunken city of Kekova.

Patara is said to be where democracy started (they excavated stone voting block) and is also said to be the birthplace of St Nicholas, who became bishop at nearby Myra. The ruins here include an ancient theatre, city walls, government build and agora. The lighthouse on the site is said to be the earliest of its kind. Visit Patara in the late afternoon and finish the trip with a drink on the sandy beach watching the amazing sunset.

The Salikent Gorge is a great place to visit, especially if you want to cool off in the fresh waters whilst walking up the gorge. For the more energetic there are rafts and rings to ride the flowing waters. Further down you can enjoy a day canoeing toward the beach.

Islamlar sits 8 km above Kalkan. Once the place Kalkan folk went to cool off at one of the trout farms built to make use of the mountain’s springs. Today Islamlar houses many a villa, enjoyed by Istanbul Turks who prefer a holiday in slightly cooler and cleaner air. Here the locals grow grapes and pomegranates, but you’ll mainly see the men sat gossiping next to the local teahouse. The trout farms remain a place to come for a wonderful fresh meal, or a breakfast consisting of fresh local fare. The rocket will be the freshest & most tasty you’ve ever had; and the fresh chips cooked in olive oil take some beating.

By night both Kalkan and Kas come alive. Kas has more of a bohemian feel, people ambling through the cobbled streets, passing the ancient tomb in the street, haggling for textiles, carpets and other goodies, maybe stopping for the traditional Turkish ‘maras’ ice cream, a tulip-shaped glass of tea or a wonderful kebab in the shadow of the mosque. Most of the villas in Kas are just out of town on the Cukurbag Peninsula. A reasonable (5km) taxi or Dolmus (local bus) ride into town. Be sure to try the Piyaz, a white bean salad with tahini sauce.

Travelling along the coast, towards Kalkan you pass the modern marina, the children’s beach park (run by the local hotel school) and halfway to Kalkan the stunning Kaputas Beach, cut in a gorge with all different shades of turquoise in the sea.

Kalkan is a more sophisticated resort, with the villas built onto the mountainside. Evening are spent enjoying the rooftop restaurants, perched on the top of the old ‘konak’ houses. Then wandering to a seaside bar for a cocktail, after shopping for glass lanterns, Iznik pottery, handbags or pestemel towel. Do visit the ‘pastane’, local patisseries which do the most delicious morning pastries and you must try the ‘Gozleme’ pancakes at the Thursday market.

Other things to do in the area include scuba diving as the visibility is excellent, paragliding, horseriding on Patara Beach or kayaking around the sunken ruins at Kekova.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Teens

With half an acre of grounds and a backdrop of pine tree forests and green meadows, Patara View House is the ideal place for families. There are plenty of exciting walking trails, as well as family-friendly swimming beaches in the area, including sandy Patara Beach with calm, sheltered waters.

The centre of Kalkan is a short drive away, where you’ll find plenty of family-friendly restaurants. You can jump on a boat trip from the harbour or sea kayak to the island of Kekova where there are interested half submerged ruins to explore, as well as prime swimming and snorkelling spots. There are also plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports like scuba diving and parasailing.

For cultural trips, adults and kids alike can enjoy the bohemian town of Kas, a 30-40 minute drive away from Kalkan. There you’ll find the ancient ruins of Antiphellos scattered around the town and 500 metres along from the harbour is a small well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre.
