Three-bedroomed Villa Tulay is in picturesque Islamlar, a rural village nestled in the Taurus Mountains. The luxurious villa boasts uninterrupted, panoramic views of sandy Patara Beach and the glistening turquoise sea, and is surrounded by two acres of land for your utmost privacy. The interior is as impressive as the exterior with super-stylish décor including exposed brick walls and sky lights.
Skilled architects have designed the villa, and it shows in the spacious and well-thought-out layout. There’s an expansive open-plan living, kitchen and dining room with a special wooden dining table and state-of-the-art cooking appliances. On chilled evenings, sink into the comfortable cushioned sofas and watch movies on the large flat-screen television. The dining room looks out onto the terrace, with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors making the most of the tranquil views.
Outside, the cliff-edge infinity pool is the perfect gathering spot for family and friends, with a bank of sun loungers and two swinging chairs in prime position for the best blue views. The pool has a mini waterfall and is split into two with a separate shallower section for children. Sun seekers can find their ideal sunbathing spot, while shade-lovers will enjoy the undercover part of the villa.
You’re spoilt for choice for rooms at Villa Tulay too; all are equally seductive, stylish and serene. Take your pick from two doubles and a twin. The master benefits from a chic circular bed, balcony overlooking the coastline and a jacuzzi bathtub for a spa-like feel. The twin has its own on en-suite shower room, while the double boasts a ‘luxe’ tub – and both have direct access to the terrace. Homely furnishings like candles, poofs and patterned rugs add warm finishing touches, while wood accents like beams and dark furniture evoke the natural tree-lined surroundings.
With the beauty of the Taurus Mountains on your doorstep, the chic amenities of Kalkan just a 20-minute drive away and the translucent water of the Lycian coast nearby, Islamlar is the perfect base to explore the best on offer in this stunning region of Turkey.

Villa Tulay is in Islamlar village, nuzzled in the Taurus Mountains not far from the sophisticated Turkish town of Kalkan. The quaint village is known for its dozen-or-so trout restaurants making use of icy mountain streams to fill their tanks. In the village square, have a look at one of two working mills that still use water power and a great millstone to turn residents' grain into flour.
This incredibly beautiful area offers a compelling combination of a peaceful, utterly unspoilt terrain. The villa is close to parts of the famous Lycian Way – it’s a spectacular walking route that has breath-taking views over the coast from above Kas and Kalkan and goes to remote, unspoilt places like the 12km long beach at Patara or the historic castle, harbour and ruins at Ucagiz.
For exploring further, a twenty-minute drive will take you to Kalkan, an old fishing town and harbour between Kas and Fethiye. It’s famous for its white-washed houses draped in brightly coloured bougainvillaea flowers. Dine on a roof terrace restaurant or bar with beautiful views of the town or while away the afternoon at one of the many harbour-side restaurants.
There are plenty more swimming beaches in Kalkan including Kaputas and Patara, as well a many beach clubs built into Kalkan's rugged coastline. You can take part in water sports or head out on a traditional wooden gulet (sailing boat) to experience the full beauty of the Turquoise Coast, with time for a swim or snorkel.
If you're interested in history the area is scattered with historic cultural sites such as Patara,
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.
Villa Tulay has its own private swimming pool, and shaded spots in the garden area – all enclosed by a wall – which is perfect for younger children to play safely and in sight.
With a fantastic selection of water sports including scuba diving and snorkelling in the area, Islamlar is an ideal destination for families. There are lovely family-friendly beaches that have sheltered and calm waters, including Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach. Part of a national park, Patara Beach is rich in birdlife and is the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle.
Kalkan, 20 minutes from Islamlar, specialises in historic sites with a range of intriguing ruins that promise a great day out for kids. For a fun day trip, you can jump on a boat to explore the coastline, stopping off for swimming and snorkelling. Families can also go mountain-biking in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains or trekking along the nearby Lycian Way Trail.

Lovely week in Turkey at the Villa Tulay, located in the mountain hills just outside of Kalkan. The villa is located in a beautiful area, with amazing views down to the ocean. Especially spectacular during sunset. The villa itself is very nice, but requires some updating. This is obviously work in progress and the all the bathrooms were new and modern. Hopefully this renovation will continue as it has so much potential. I would definitely recommend this villa based on the location and value for money. Car is essential! Kalkan is the nearest town and is located on the marina. We spent most evenings here, experiencing the various roof top restaurants and taking in the views.

Hopefully this renovation will continue as it has so much potential. The only real let down was the outside games (table tennis & table football), which were falling apart and need replacing. The owner was very nice and helpful and fixed any issues we had on the same day. I would definitely recommend this villa based on the location and value for money. Car is essential! Kalkan is the nearest town and is located on the marina. We spent most evenings here, experiencing the various roof top restaurants and taking in the views.
Everything was wonderful. Villa Tulay is a great villa and comfortable, making for a good holiday. I would recommend it to anyone.
