Overview

Pool Villa/House Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite

Kisla Evi is a charming two-bedroom villa in Kalkan on Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast. It’s a popular destination due to its sweeping Mediterranean bays, majestic backdrop of the Taurus Mountains and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. From the villa, you’re within 80m of Kalkan Beach Park, great for a morning swim or jump on a boat over to the harbour front.

The villa is spacious and has been designed to resemble a ship, with circular porthole-inspired feature windows, and it overlooks the bay and the town. It’s an excellent space for small families and outdoor living with a private and enclosed swimming pool and sun terrace, and plenty of comfortable spots for you relax or play in the sun or the shade. You can dine al-fresco while watching the sun set on your undercover dining table or cook up a storm on the outdoor BBQ.

Inside, you’ll find an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with a statement fireplace, ample seating and a dining table and chairs by the fully-equipped kitchen. Patio doors, letting in the beautiful natural light, open onto the pool terrace where you can take a dip in the cooling waters, curl up with a good book or play pool on the pool table while taking in the spectacular vistas.
The two bedrooms – a double and a twin – each have an en-suite shower room and patio doors leading onto a shared terrace which again offers fantastic views over the bay and resort. The bedrooms have plenty of windows letting in light, and that’s also where you’ll find the porthole windows for a nautical feel. For your convenience, there’s also a shower room on the ground floor.

Vibrant Kalkan town is within walking distance, or a short taxi ride, of the villa, along with the harbour which is a starting point for boat trips and excursions. The town lays on a selection of tempting dining options too, including the famous rooftop restaurants and waterfront eateries along a promenade of laid-back cocktail lounge bars.



Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • You’re within walking distance Kalkan town (about 25 minutes), with restaurants, shops and bars, but you may prefer to get a taxi home as the walk back can be more taxing.
  • The villa isn't one of Kalkan's newest but the owner wins marks on hospitality and comfort, making this a lovely place to stay.

Loading map

Kisla Evi overlooks the coastline, and is in the old fishing village of Kalkan. The town is a treasure trove of narrow streets, whitewashed houses and inviting boutiques. It's also famous for its harbourside lounge bars, rooftop restaurants serving a variety of delicious food and shops. A trip to the Thursday market is not to be missed, look out for Turkish specialities like delightful gozleme (thin dough crepes) with cheese and spinach fillings.

For outdoor exploring, there’s lots of walking and hiking routes in the area. The best known, and arguably most scenic, is the Lycian Way – a 310-mile tying-together of goat tracks and paths, which will lead you to unspoilt beaches, lush forests and soaring peaks, and stops at the ghost village of Kayakoy near Fethiye, where you’ll find abandoned Greek buildings, left from the population exchange nearly a century ago. With the dramatic pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains as a backdrop too, families can explore there too.

To immerse yourself in the rich history, you can visit the church turned mosque by Kalkan`s harbour. Venturing furthering afield you can take a boat trip to the to Kalkan's many pretty bays you can snorkel and enjoy a lunch cooked the the boats captain. You'll also find plenty of beaches in the area for a day of relaxing on soft sands or taking part in water sports like scuba diving or water skiing.

Shingley Kaputas Beach is 5.2km away, while Patara Beach, a 12-mile long stretch of shoreline that’s also a National Park, is a 18km drive. Both are ideal for swimming. The lively town of Kas is a 30-40 minute drive from Kalkan, while the seaside resort town of Fethiye is a one-hour drive away with plenty more restaurants, shops and fascinating cultural sites to explore. The area boasts a rich picking of ancient Lycian sites such as Xanthos, Patara, Letoon and Tlos, to name but a few.

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

Kisla Evi is perfectly placed on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast and has a private pool and enclosed grounds, making it an ideal choice for families with children.
The nearest beach from the villa, is less than 100m, a beach club with sheltered bay that has calm crystal-clear shallow waters – perfect for younger swimmers.
There’s also plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports in the local area, like scuba diving, jet skiing who will all visit the beach club on request.

The centre of Kalkan is within walking distance, but if the beach clubs water taxi is running even easier to reach, where you’ll find family-friendly restaurants and bars, bordering cobbled streets. From Kalkan's karbour, you can take a boat trip around local bays for the day, with a hearty lucnh cooked by the captain, such a relaxing day. You can also head to the bohemian town of Kas, a 30-40 minute drive away, with ancient ruins scattered around the town and a small well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre.

Other notable sites for keeping the children entertained include Tlos, Patara, Xanthos or Letoon. A trip to the cooling waters of the Saklikent Gorge is also worthwhile.

Reviews

  • Mature and well run

    on 15/07/2018

    This is one of the older villas in this location, but what it lacks in youthful flashiness it makes up for with the kind of touches that only come with years of well-learned customer service. This is no cynical agency let - stripped clean of all supplies between bookings. We arrived to find a well thought-out range of supplies in the kitchen and the Turkish owner waiting to welcome us personally. Beds were super comfortable with first class linens, bathrooms had very good hot water and shower pressure, all the air-con units worked well and were quiet and there were fly screens on some of the bedroom windows so you could sleep with fresh air coming in. The standard of furnishings, fixtures and fittings were pleasant, uncluttered and traditional. It felt like a well-built Turkish house, rather than a 'could be anywhere' villa.
    The real selling-point of this one however is the location, just a few steps from the entrance to the beachclub which has lovely sea swimming, good bar food all day and a little ferry boat shuttling back and forth to the main Kalkan town (about £1.10 each way, running until 20.000 hrs). It all makes for a very relaxing holiday: swimming and snorkelling by day, pottering over into town in the evening with a cheap taxi home.
    Privacy-wise, the lovely large terrace is raised up from the road so you are not overlooked while sunbathing by passers-by. There is now a new villa to its left (as you face the villa) which is higher and therefore overlooks this one's terrace. The new neighbour is just a one-bedroomed property which is being marketed as a honeymoon retreat, and the owners of Kisla Evi have put in a tall and well-designed planted border which hopefully will fill out in time.
    Overall it had all the ingredients for a super holiday. The little swimming pool was crystal clear, and the very good quality little pool table provided great entertainment. A success.
