Tucked away in a serene hillside location, Villa Eymen is an enchanting one-bedroom hideaway designed for couples seeking relaxation and intimate moments together. Surrounded by rolling terrain, the property is embraced by majestic trees that have stood the test of time, providing a haven for diverse wildlife. As you explore the garden, you'll be treated to sweeping views that extend beyond the untamed foliage, revealing glimpses of the mesmerizing inky-blue sea. Villa Eymen offers a rare sense of seclusion and privacy, making it an idyllic retreat. With both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, as well as a meticulously landscaped courtyard garden, guests can indulge in ultimate tranquility.

Should you manage to tear yourself away from the villa, the province itself is steeped in rich history, as it lies in the heart of ancient Lycia. The picturesque village of Islamlar, surrounded by scenic beauty, offers all the qualities one desires from a rural escape, while still being conveniently located just a short distance from the charming town of Kalkan.

Quirky and cozy, Villa Eymen is a striking and unique sanctuary that stands out from the crowd. Its exceptional location and charming features make it a truly remarkable retreat. Despite its intimate size, the main swimming pool is surprisingly spacious, allowing guests to enjoy a refreshing swim before breakfast or indulge in some invigorating laps. The garden terrace surrounding the pool is thoughtfully furnished with an alfresco dining table, a built-in barbecue, and comfortable lounge spaces, inviting guests to savor outdoor moments in style.

Upon entering the villa through the glass doors, you'll find an open-plan space encompassing the kitchen, living, and sitting areas. The villa is elegantly appointed with all the modern amenities one would expect, ensuring a comfortable stay. The interior exudes a fresh and airy ambiance, with whitewashed walls beautifully contrasted by darker wooden fittings and complemented by vibrant soft furnishings. The expansive gray sofa serves as an inviting spot to unwind, offering panoramic views of the garden and the rugged, mountainous landscape beyond.

The master bedroom takes center stage with its showstopping feature—the enormous round bed, adding a touch of theatricality to the room. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors on two sides of the bedroom create a seamless connection between the interior and the exterior. One set of doors opens onto the garden and the outside pool terrace, while the other leads to the indoor pool, allowing you to literally roll out of bed and into the water if you so desire.

Villa Eymen is a hidden gem where every detail has been carefully crafted to provide an unforgettable retreat for couples. With its captivating surroundings, delightful amenities, and unique character, this sanctuary promises a truly extraordinary escape where you can relax, rejuvenate, and create cherished memories with your loved one.

Islamlar is the closest mountain village to neighbouring Kalkan and is a fine choice for a summer escape. The village boasts some magnificent scenery, perched in an elevated position on the foothills of the Taurus Mountain range, breath-taking panoramic views can be enjoyed from every aspect.  This delightfully remote location has a surprising number of amenities, a local bakery, two working mills pressing grains for the local population and a dozen or so mini markets which are surprisingly well stocked.  Islamlar is a sanctuary for peace and tranquillity, tucked away, far from the madding crowd. Life in this sleepy village remains very much as it was centuries ago and provides a rare opportunity for visitors to sample a genuine taste of rural Turkish village life.

Undeveloped and unspoilt, Islamlar has preserved a strong sense of heritage. The village is predominantly populated by native local farmers and a peppering of holiday villas. Dining options are simple and good. There are a selection of unassuming local restaurants all serving, but not limited to, the renowned freshwater trout which is a local delicacy. Frequented by locals, holiday residents and visitors from further afield, the restaurants are known for having the most relaxed ambience. Listen to the running spring water, straight from the mountains, and take in the most panoramic vistas under dusty pastel pink skies.

Kalkan is the closest town to Islamlar and is just 15 minutes down the road. Once a Greek fishing village, Kalkan has retained some of its old charm and is undeniably beautiful. In the old town, bougainvillea can be seen sprawling luxuriously over the tiny and colourful balconies of restored Greek houses. In the summer months, the town is extremely atmospheric and popular with Guests who return year after year. Aside from the glorious horseshoe bay and barefoot beach clubs, the town is probably just as popular for its excellent choice of elegant roof terraced restaurants.

The Lycian coast has so much to offer, gleaming moonstone-grey pebble beaches, long strands of golden sand, walking trails, classical ruins, the second longest gorge in Europe, classical cookery classes, paragliding and lazy days at sea. Even the toughest crowd would be easily pleased exploring Islamlar and beyond.

Islamlar

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.
