Wow what a view! Is what you will say when you stay at the very pretty Kalamar House, overlooking the beautiful Kalamar Bay, in the exclusive town of Kalkan on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. This classic architect designed four storey villa has four ensuite bathrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests, perfect for a family or friend’s holiday. Built in local white plaster, brown brick trim, and natural wood finish, with delicate white lace metal balconies, which offer simply superb Mediterranean Sea views. The villa has its own off road private garage, and comes with complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout. The interiors are simply decorated with a neutral palette of cool whites, soft beiges, with sunshine yellow and sea blue highlights. Park your car in the road entry garage, and take the steps to the ground floor to the entrance of the villa.

The ground floor is an open plan living space, light and airy with floor to ceiling sea view windows that give access to the terrace. The seating area has a large comfy creamy beige L-shaped sofa and matching pouffe, a set of useful occasional tables, two chairs and a coffee table, facing a flat screen television with satellite receiver, and a smart Adams style enclosed fireplace for the cooler evenings. Adjacent to the seating area is a well-equipped kitchen with an American family sized fridge freezer, cooker and hob, dishwasher and washing machine, a table and chairs, and an eight-piece place settings. A convenient guest cloakroom is accessible from the living area. Take the stairs to the first floor where you will find two double bedrooms. Simply furnished in crisp white linens and drapes, the largest room has a double bed, wardrobes, flat screen tv, floor to ceiling curved windows with panoramic sea views that open onto a furnished balcony, and an ensuite black and white tiled marble bathroom. The second room is a twin, with two single beds, which can be pushed together to make a double, a bedside table and wardrobes, and a balcony, where you can sip your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the Mediterranean Sea. The second floor has a further two double ensuite bedrooms, both with stunning sea view balconies. The top terrace has a jacuzzi bath, relaxing sun loungers, and a bar with built-in fridge, what more could you ask for than to sip some bubbles in some bubbles as the sun sets over the horizon.

The terrace can be accessed via the ground floor living space, where you will find a stunning ladder entry L-shaped swimming pool, which unusually follows the curves of the house. The pool is surrounded by sea blue cushioned sun loungers with shady parasols, and a huge inviting sun bed with its own pull-down canopy, just imagine relaxing in the sunshine reading this year’s latest best seller. A mustard yellow six-seater rattan dining table and chairs and barbeque complete the picture, and is the ideal place to enjoy some alfresco entertaining under the twinkling stars.

What you should know…

  • Kalamar is built on a steep hillside, which is why you get such superb sea views, fortunately Kalamar House is at the bottom of that hill but but it does mean a steep walk uphill when you head into town. Think of it as your gym for the day or book a taxi!
  • Sorry, no pets, no smoking, no parties or events or fireworks, and we keep our neighbours happy too
  • The villa comfortably sleeps up to eight guests, we do not offer extra beds, cots and highchairs can be hired locally

Villa Kalamar House is located in beautiful Kalamar Bay, to the west of the quaint harbour town of Kalkan, situated on the Turquoise Coast, the jewel of the Mediterranean Sea. The town of Kalkan is 125 kilometres from Dalaman Airport, a scenic one and a half hour journey through the Turkish countryside and Taurus mountains. Originally a Greek enclave called Kalamaki, Ottoman and Hellenic influences can be found in the winding streets of the old town, full of traditional white houses and home to a plethora of restaurants, cafes and bars, and souvenir shops full of goodies you’ll want to take home. From the villa it is a short walk to local shops and restaurants, and a five minute drive into Kalkan where you can find supermarkets and banks, and a local Thursday market, that can cater for all the provisions you will need for a happy holiday.

Within walking distance of the villa, is the charming Kalamar and Kulube Beach Clubs, with restaurants, and full size swimming pool. Take a trip into town, and at the harbour get aboard the complimentary water taxi to one of the many exclusive beach clubs with bathing platforms, sea views, swimming pools, and waiter service, there’s no need to leave your sun lounger all day. No stay in Kalkan is complete without a boat trip from the harbour, whether it’s a shared one with family and friends or you charter your own gulet, a day out at sea with your favourite captain and crew, is one to treasure. All aboard for a day of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays, enjoy a meal of local homecooked meze, take afternoon tea, and then sail back to harbour cocktail in hand to watch the sunset.

For the beach bunnies, Kalkan has its own pebble beach with easy access into the sea. Travel further afield to the stunning Kaputas Beach set in a natural gorge, only two hundred steps down and back again, but well worth it. Take a trip to Patara, where you will find twenty kilometres of unspoilt golden sands and a protected area for the hatching turtles, an archaeological site over two thousand years old, and the most stunning sunsets best seen from the ever-changing dunes. Kalkan is home to a number of beach clubs along the length of its coastline, have some fun in the sun at family-friendly resorts offering water sports and swimming pools, or relax and unwind at exclusive luxury destinations and be waited on hand and foot whilst enjoying alfresco spa treatments.

For those with itchy feet the Lycian Way walking trail cuts through Kalkan. Follow in the footsteps of thousands of years of history, as you trek the trail taking you through major archaeological sites, local villages, dramatic coastlines, and the areas’ flora and fauna. Take a short journey to the town of Kinik, where you can step back in time to the Lycian city of Xanthos. Follow the D400 to Fethiye, and discover the historical sites of Patara, Letoon, Tlos, and Pinara, where you can see the ancient ruins, amphitheatres and temples with Lycian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine influences. The harbour town of Fethiye is also full of ancient sites worth seeing, as well as a foodie-heaven fish market, and home to some seriously good designer labels and fabulous jewellery shopping. Whilst the nearer town of Kas is just twenty-five kilometres in the other direction, and worth the journey alone along one of the world’s most stunning and dramatic coastlines. Walk through the harbour to the cobbled streets full of Ottoman architecture and overhanging balconies festooned with pastel coloured bougainvillaea, barter for unique handmade and antique goods in its many shops, and make memories dining in one of the traditional restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine with mesmerising sea views. And if you’re feeling intercontinental hop on the twenty-minute ferry from Kas to the Greek island of Meis, where you can explore the Blue Cave and dine by the water’s edge.

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 Kids Ideal for Teens

Kalkan is the perfect holiday hot spot for kids of all ages. Starting with the villa’s private pool as there’s no set hours, your children can swim and splash all day. Within walking distance is the family-friendly Kalamar and Kulube Beach Clubs with shallow entry warm sea, bathing platforms, swimming pool, and lots of water sports to keep them amused all day. Across the harbour is Zest, in a stunning setting with huge infinity and kid’s swimming pools, and a wood-fired pizza restaurant, makes it great place to take your children. For the more sophisticated or older children Indigo Beach Club with bathing platforms and step entry into the sea is ideal, whilst the laid-back cool Palm Beach is smaller and quieter. In the pretty town of Kalkan you will find an original authentic Turkish village full of winding streets of white-washed houses, family-friendly restaurants and cafes, and shops galore selling souvenirs.

For your little daredevils, Aristos Water Sports will take them on exhilarating sea rides, tandem parasailing, jet skis, and racing speed boats. For the not so adventurous Kalkan has its own public pebble beach, with sunbeds and brollies, safe entry into the calm sea and a rather good cafe. A trip to Kalkan isn’t complete without a lazy day at sea on one of the traditional gulets that leave the harbour daily, with stopovers at beautiful bays, mud bath inlets, super swimming and snorkelling in the warm waters of the Turquoise Coast, not to mention the magnificent meze lunch with freshly caught fish, then sail home and turtle spot as the sun sets. Whilst you are in town book a day trip for all the family. Enjoy a jeep safari through the local villages, see the natural flora and fauna, and ride the famous Patara sand dunes.

Go further afield to Sakilkent Gorge, where you can walk through a flowing river to a magnificent waterfall. Take a trip to Kekova and see a sunken city through a glass-bottomed boat. On the way to Fethiye stop off at the ghost town of Kaya, where you can explore the ruins of an abandoned Greek town with original houses, churches and chapels. The town of Olu Deniz offers the best of both worlds, with stunning sandy beaches with easy entry shallow waters, and a magnificent one thousand seven hundred metre cable car ride up to the top of Mount Babadag, from where you can tandem paraglide and land back where you started. A short boat taxi journey from Olu Deniz will take you to Butterfly Valley, where your children can discover over eighty species of beautiful butterflies in nature’s garden.

Reviews

  • Great spot in Kalamar

    on 09/10/2022

    We've stayed in Kalkan before and prefer sleepy Kalamar to other areas. Villa ticked all boxes, especially beds were comfortable, good Wifi, hot shower. We loved being able to walk down to the beach club or the platforms in the nearby hotel. We also enjoyed walking a few 100 meters to House Cafe for dinner, Ali is the best host & food good. The boys did Scuba Diving with Kalkan Dive centre at Kalamar Beach club so it was great we could meet them for lunch. Taxi into town was approx £5 each way, just whatsapp them for when you want pick up. The villa had everything we needed and the owner was open to feedback. We loved the rooftop jacuzzi, and bar area, lots of the restaurants deliver (use the KalkanEats app), same for the supermarkets. We will be back...
