This stunning panoramic sea view villa is located at the top of the town of the holiday hot spot of Kalkan, on the Mediterranean Sea of Turkey’s Turquoise coast. Constructed of classic white stone and shimmering glass, the villa is delightfully airy, flooded with natural light, and offers the most incredible views of the town, harbour, and the beautiful bay of Kalkan. Villa Ayca is a detached property, built over three floors, with five ensuite bedrooms, which can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests, ideal for a large family gathering or friend’s get-together. The villa has a parking space for two cars and its own private heated swimming pool, complete with complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout.

This contemporary villa has been furnished with only the highest quality products, and the interior is decorated in a neutral palette of soft shades of grey with splashes of jewel colour highlights.

Enter the villa at the ground floor level, where you will find a world of open-plan living. The seating area has floor-to-ceiling glass windows that let in lots of natural daylight and opens onto the pool terrace. There is a large wrap-around L-shaped elephant grey sofa and a contrasting brown armchair facing a flat-screen television fully loaded with SKY, box sets, and a Superbox. For the cooler evenings, there is a suspended wood-burning Turkish fireplace. The adjacent dining table and eight upholstered chairs are ideal for impressive indoor entertaining. A state-of-the-art stainless steel grey and apricot kitchen are fully equipped with everything you need to cater for a happy holiday, including a built-in oven and hob and microwave, a family-size fridge freezer, and a large preparation island.

Take the stairs to the first floor, where you will find three bedrooms, ensuite marble bathrooms with showers, and fully furnished sweeping sea-view balconies. Two of the bedrooms have large double beds, and the third has two single beds, great for children sharing. The master bedroom terrace suite can be found on the top floor, furnished with a king-size bed, a separate fully fitted dressing room, a glass-fronted jacuzzi bathroom, a huge ensuite marble bathroom with walk-in shower, and a furnished balcony with sea views as far as the eye can see.

There is a shallow children’s pool area and a sea-view jacuzzi bath on the terrace for the adults. The pool is surrounded by modern grey mesh sun loungers, matching shady parasols, and some squishy bean bags to sit in and catch up on this year’s bestseller. A turquoise cushioned relaxed seating area is ideal for a morning coffee and chat or sundowners at sunset. The ten-seater matching turquoise cushioned table and chairs are perfect for enjoying an alfresco dinner under the stars, served with local Turkish delicacies cooked on the portable barbecue.

Loading map

Villa Ayca is located in Ortolaan, at the top of the quaint harbour town of Kalkan, situated on Turkey’s 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 cobbled streets of the old town, full of traditional white houses, festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea.

Kalkan is home to a reputed one hundred and fifty restaurants, cafes, and bars, and lots of souvenir and craft shops, full of goodies you’ll want to take home. From the villa it is a short walk to the local mini market for your daily provisions. Take a three minute drive into Kalkan where you can find supermarkets, shops, banks, and a fabulous Thursday market selling fresh local produce and hand crafted souvenirs. The nearest beach can be found five minutes’ drive away by the harbour, it is a pebble beach with calm clear waters, sun loungers and parasols for hire, and a local café for refreshments.

Alternatively hop on one of the many private water taxis to whisk you away to a beach club of your choice. There are fifteen very different beach clubs populating the Kalkan coastline, from the sophisticated Villa Mahal and laid back Indigo, to the family friendly Kalkan Beach Park and the beautifully staged Zest with its huge adult and kids’ infinity pools. Travel further afield to the stunning Kaputas Beach, set in a natural gorge, it’s only two hundred steps down, and two hundred back up again. Or take a trip to Patara, where you will find two two-thousand year old amphitheatres, ancient ruins, and fortifications, and twenty kilometres of unspoilt golden sands, with a protected area for the hatching Caretta Caretta turtles. No stay in Kalkan is complete without a boat trip from the harbour, whether it’s a shared one with family and friends, or why not charter your own private gulet for a day at sea with your favourite captain and crew, it is the stuff memories are made of. All aboard for a day of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays, enjoy a meal of local homecooked meze, take afternoon tea aboard, and then sail back to harbour, cocktail in hand to watch the famous sunsets.

Back on dry land don’t miss the opportunity to experience an authentic Turkish hammam, enjoy the heat and bubbles of a hands-on massage, and be pampered in one of the many super spas all over town. 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, it’s 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. If you are feeling intercontinental, hop on the twenty-minute ferry from Kas to the Greek island of Meis, known locally as Kastellorizo, where you can swim in the beautiful Blue Cave, then dine alfresco under a Grecian sky 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 with dedicated children’s area, as there’s no set hours, your children can swim and splash all day. The nearest beach is a five minute drive away, and can be found next to Kalkan harbour. This public pebbly beach is great for young children, with easy entry shallow water, an adjacent kid’s playground, sun beds and brollies for hire, and a local café for refreshment. There is also a great choice of local beach clubs suitable for families, most notably Kalkan Beach Park with a selection of kid friendly water sports and its own beach, and Zest with a large children’s pool, and a wood fire pizza restaurant. For the more sophisticated or older children got to Indigo Beach Club, with bathing platforms and step entry into the sea, whilst the laid-back cool Palm Beach is smaller and quieter. In the pretty town of Kalkan you will find an original Greek village, full of winding streets of white-washed houses, lots of child-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. No trip to Kalkan is complete without a family lazy day at sea on one of the traditional gulets that leave the harbour daily. Stopover at beautiful bays, mud bath inlets, swim and snorkel in the warm waters of the Turquoise Coast, dine on the magnificent meze lunch with freshly caught fish, then sail home and turtle spot as the sun sets. Whilst you are in town book one of the many day trips 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 and explore the ruins of an abandoned Greek town, with the original houses, churches and chapels. The town of Olu Deniz offers the best of both worlds, with stunning sandy spit 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. In the evenings during high season watch your favourite stars under the stars at Indigo Beach Club film nights, take a sunset cruise and swim with the fishes under the light of the silvery moon, or drive to the Patara dunes to watch the sun set over the sea and watch in wonder as it dips under the horizon, before enjoying a fabulous family supper of traditional Turkish cuisine in Gelemis village.
