Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Set in the foothills of the majestic Taurus Mountains in Islamlar on Turkey's Mediterranean coast, two-bedroomed Villa Zeybek ticks all the boxes for a relaxing holiday retreat. Peaceful location? Check. Private pool? Check. Complete seclusion yet close enough to a village and amenities? Check. Check. Check. The modern white-washed building has clean lines, floor-to-ceiling windows letting in the natural light and elegant interiors brought to life with pops of deep blues, reminiscent of the sea.

All the rooms are designed with your comfort and relaxation in mind. Contemporary furnishings include large corner sofas adorned with cushions, plush beds and unique artwork, combining beautifully to create a true oasis of calm. The rooms have a large balcony offering sweeping views of the countryside, and there are seats to survey the breath-taking landscape from. The bedrooms are both en-suite, one with a Jacuzzi and both have walk-in power showers for a serene spa-like feel.

The exclusive hillside villa also boasts a large terrace and just a short drive from Patara's sandy beach. The large swimming pool has two wading pools incorporated – perfect for a cooling dip or for smaller children to splash – and there's an outside shower, fully-shaded dining area and outdoor furnishings. You can reach the open-plan living, kitchen and dining area direct from the terrace.

Villa Zeybek is in a unique and serene setting amidst the olive groves and pine trees in the beautiful mountain village. Islamlar is renowned for its trout farms; restaurants serving fresh trout, slow-cooked lamb and other local delicacies and is only a 15-minute drive to the lively resort of Kalkan with a weekly fruit and vegetable market and shops. If you prefer to dine at home and soak up the enchanting sunsets, there are nearby shops selling fresh and organic produce. This beautiful part of Turkey is the perfect place to rest or explore the interesting cultural and historical sites nearby.

What you should know…

  • There are a couple of small grocery markets in Islamlar selling essential items, however Kalkan town, a 15 minute drive, offers larger supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and bars.
  • The villa is nestled into the hillside and is on a slight incline, it's worth remembering that a quick walk downhill will mean a steep walk back!
  • The outside jacuzzi isn't heated, won't be an issue in the height of season when it will be great to cool down in.

Villa Zeybek has a picture-perfect setting in Islamlar, a twenty-minute drive from the golden sandy Patara Beach, where the mountains rise behind you, and the Mediterranean sea sparkles in front. The beach is 12km-long, so you’re sure to find a private sunbathing spot away from any hustle and bustle. With clear waters, the beach is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Keep an eye out for loggerhead turtles, as these fantastic creatures build their nests up the beach. This popular village in Turkey is also known for its trout farms and restaurants serving their freshly-caught catches.

From Islamlar, it’s an easy 15-minute drive to Kalkan; a vibrant seaside boutique resort celebrated for its waterfront and roof-top restaurants, exquisite harbour dotted with Turkish wooden boats and historic old town area 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-day massage.

Nature lovers won’t want to miss exploring the pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains. With deeply cut valleys and canyons, they’re an ideal place to hike. In cooler months you could also join the popular Lycian Way – a long-distance footpath that takes you around the coast. The route stops at exciting sites ending at the 'ghost village' of Kayakoy near Fethiye. For even more 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. If you like history the area boasts many Lycian sites such as Xanthos, Patara, Tlos and Pinara.

Other fun escapades include boat tours to the small island of Kekova where you can snorkel and use the glass-bottomed boats to view part sunken ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the 2nd century. There’s also plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports like scuba diving and sea kayaking and more than enough craggy coves and caves for you to explore.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

With a private outdoor pool featuring two shallower wading pools and enclosed grounds, Villa Zeybek is an ideal choice for families with children. Patara is a sandy beach, which is a 20 minute drive from the villa. The beach has sunbeds, umbrellas and a small cafe. At Kalkan's beach clubs there’s plenty of opportunities for teenagers to take part in water sports like sea kayaking and scuba diving, plus all the beach clubs have drinks and food service, steps into the sea and comfortable sunbeds. Kalkan's pebble beach is perfect for younger swimmers and has a few restaurants and ice cream shops nearby.

The villa is in the foothills of the mountains, with walking / hiking trails to get back in nature while enjoying some quality family time. Islamlar is like time stood still and you will see locals working in their small holdings like their ancestors did a hundred years ago.

The centre of Kalkan is a 15-minute drive away where you’ll find family-friendly restaurants and exciting historical sites to explore. You can jump on a boat from Kalkan harbourand enjoy a day at sea with lunch and afternoon tea served by your captain.

For cultural trips, adults and kids alike can enjoy the more 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.

Reviews

  • Totally recommend!

    on 02/09/2022

    We had previously visited Villa Zeybek three times before Covid restrictions, and then booked and had to cancel our planned holidays in 2020 & 2021. So it was great to at last manage to return for our fourth visit. Why? Because if you’ve found somewhere that you love as much as Villa Rudi, why go anywhere else. Fabulous Villa, immaculately maintained and serviced, and great views from upstairs balcony, all as my previous reviews. Kalkan 20 minutes away, the last section of road which a certain reviewer took exception to is now surfaced, and the nearby Village Restaurant as great value and welcoming as ever. We could never make up our mind which part of the day we loved best in this beautiful location. The wonderful mornings with only
    swallows chirping and cockerels crowing to break the silence, usually lovely breezes through the day with slightly lower temperatures than in Kalkan, and again the peaceful evenings. And as all our previous visits & reviews, Rudi himself and his lovely family. IF there was ever a problem with anything, Rudi is on hand to sort out. Rudi makes your visit feel special. Thanks again for your special friendship Rudi which we treasure. So all in all, a five star experience, which we totally recommend.

  • Gorgeous place, gorgeous villa!

    on 02/09/2022

    We enjoyed a lovely week here. The surroundings are beautiful, it’s peaceful and tranquil.
    The villa itself is very new, spotlessly clean and very well equipped as well as being very comfy. We barbecued and enjoyed the Well appointed outside area very much and the air conditioning in every room was very welcome when it got too hot. Pool well maintained and great size.
    There are homes nearby but you wouldn’t know it as it’s supremely private and not overlooked at all.
    Owner is on hand if needed but not at all intrusive and the family are delightful - especially papa who farms next door and gifted us the most amazing organic produce.
    Relaxing - luxurious - great value. Highly recommend this lovely home.

  • Perfect option for quality time into the green mountains!

    on 01/09/2022

    If you want to spend some quality time high into the green mountains, then Zeybek villa is a perfect option for you.
    I spend a week in Zeybek villa with my wife in April, and i had a wonderful experience there. The villa is absultely fantastic, located in a unique place and is equiped with everything you would need. The host Mr. Rudi himself is an amazing person, as he treats you special and is very helpful.
    Note: The road from Kalkan to Rudi villa is 7-8km, uphill into the beautiful mountains, however the road has some risky curves and is broken at some places, making the drive a little challenging.

  • Wonderful stay!

    on 17/08/2022

    We stayed 10 nights at Villa Zeybek. The villa is comfortable, stylishly decorated and well appointed - aircon in all main rooms, 3 bathrooms, nice open plan kitchen / dining / living room. All appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, oven etc) are working without issues, the Pool is clean and all terrace furniture in good order. The owner Rudi is a local and he and his family live nearby and can pop over within minutes to help - we had a rain storm and they quickly folded the parasols and put our washing inside without us even asking. Rudi is also happy to provide local information and arrange taxis etc. The surrounding land is farmed by said family, and they turned out to be absolutely adorable, giving us free vegetables, grapes and figs from their garden. There are also goats, chickens and sheep, completing the rural theme. The mum also bakes her own delicious flat breads which she delivered to order to the villa (for a reasonable Price).
    Note the price of this rural tranquility is that the villa is accessed through 3/4 mile of single track untarmaced road, quite steep in some places. it’s manageable (and not unusual for Islamlar, which is built along the mountain) but maybe worth nothing for less confident drivers.

  • Great time at Villa Zeybek!

    on 02/08/2022

    Not long returned from a two week stay at Villa Zeybek where we had a great time. The villa is fantastic, so well equipped, it contains everything you need. The views down over Kalkan are beautiful. Surrounded by farmland, the location benefits from peace and quiet and complete privacy. Rudi and his family were so helpful and made themselves available whenever needed. Midway through our stay, they carried out the most thorough clean through of the villa possible. It was immaculate afterwards!
    It was our first time to the region. Kalkan is approximately 20 minutes drive downhill. Near to the villa are some local shops and restaurants about 5 minutes drive - you could walk this, but the villa is on a mountainside so the terrain is steep in places. We chose to use taxis throughout. Gokhan, our taxi driver offered a great service and took us everywhere, prices were reasonable.
    Patara Beach wasn’t too far away, waves were strong though and quite dangerous. Beach clubs are a great alternative and we found them much safer. Our favourite day out was a private boat hire with Pala Boats organised by Rudi.
    We had a fantastic time away and have returned home extremely relaxed. Thanks to Rudi and his family for the lovely villa experience, and also for helping to organise us throughout our time in Turkey.

  • Lovely villa

    on 13/07/2022

    This is a luxurious villa! The Villa was lovely and spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The outside area was fabulous with lots of space, plenty of furniture and comfy sun-beds and a view to die for. Rudi was very helpful from the initial booking, transfers and any information we needed to know about the villa and surrounding town. All in all, a wonderful holiday in a fabulous villa, to which we are very much looking forward to returning to next year.
