Contemporary five-bedroomed Villa Bartu is a luxury haven a few minutes walk from Kalkan's cobbled streets. Tucked away on the hillside on Turkey’s serene Turquoise Coast, it’s a stylish and spacious villa with plenty of privacy and beautiful panoramic views across the bay. Modern minimalism and classic Mediterranean features rule indoors and out: the clean lines, whitewashed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows and doors are all the better to target your focus on the gasp-worthy sunsets.

The characterful building is made from beautiful local stone and is surrounded by a mature garden with several olive trees and fragrant native plants, set against a backdrop of the majestic Taurus Mountains. The villa is arranged across three floors, and there’s a balcony extending the entire width of the property so you can wake up to those idyllic seafront vistas and tranquil blue hues.

There’s an open-plan living area with a fully-equipped kitchen and dining table, alongside a separate TV room and cloakroom. Glass doors from the living area open up to the pool and dining terrace beyond, bringing in lots of natural light. Four comfortable bedrooms are in the central part of the property, and there’s fourth on the lower ground floor with a small kitchen and dining space.

The main stand out feature is one of the en-suites with a deep soak stand-alone bath, perfectly positioned to take advantage of the wonderful views. Outside, there’s also a sunken swim-up bar with submerged bar stools, and plenty of space to sunbathe or relax with a good book in the shade. In the evening, dine al fresco on the terrace with lanterns and candles creating a romantic ambience.

Villa Bartu is just a short 10-minute walk from Kalkan's old town, beach and harbour. There you can dine at one of the vibrant waterfront restaurants, browse the quaint boutiques, shops and bazaars or take in the historic sites. With stunning walking routes off-the-beaten-track and soft sandy swimming beaches too, Kalkan is the perfect holiday destination for families and friends alike.

Good news! For a little extra, this property is available as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

What you should know…

  • The villa is on a slope so it’s easier getting to the beach and town than it is getting back
  • There are other properties in the area, however the villa is surrounded by trees and is private
  • The bedroom on the lower ground floor is separately-accessed from the main part of the villa, therefore, it’s unsuitable for young children but it’s ideal for teenagers or extended family members needing privacy or independence

Sitting pretty in central position just off of the Kalamar Bay, Villa Bartu is in a great location. From the villa you only have to walk 200m and you are in the centre of Kalkan, easy for restaurants and shopping. Kalkan's harbour and pebble beach are a 1 km downhill walk, which may make you feel a taxi up is a better idea after a tough day in the sun.

In Kalkan's centre, a short walk from the villa, you’ll find vibrant roof top restaurants, quaint boutiques and cocktail bars. The town sits on the Turkish Mediterranean coast and has a backdrop of the stunning pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains. At Kalkan's weekly market you can pick up everything from fresh produce to handmade souvenirs. Later you could visit a traditional Turkish bath for a relaxing massage or have lunch at one of the many beach clubs. By night there’s the charming cobbled streets of Kalkan, where you can wander the whitewashed streets and visit the quirky shops and boutiques, dining at one of many rooftop restaurants underneath the twinkling stars.

For outdoor adventuring , the Taurus Mountains can be explored via the popular Lycian Way – a trail that traverses the coast from Kayakoy to Antalya.  Kalkan Bus Station is within walking distance of the villa – for venturing further afield to nearby places like Patara, Xanthos or Saklikent Gorge. You can book days out such as exploring the 'sunken city' of Kekova by boat, canoeing or horseriding on Patara's sandy beach. There are also plenty of swimming beaches in and near Kalkan including Kaputas Beach ideal places to swim and snorkel or Patara, which has 12km of sandy beach. You can also take part in water sports like scuba diving, jet skiing or take a boat trip on a Turkish Gulet, stopping in various bays and enjoying a hearty lunch cooked on board, experiencing the full beauty of the coast.

If it gets too hot in Kalkan, escape up to the mountains and enjoy a trout lunch, fried village cheese and the freshest of rocket in one of Islamlar's many restaurants.

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

With a private swimming pool and located within walking distance of Kalkan’s town centre, Villa Bartu  is an ideal villa for families with children. Thoughout Kalkan there are small children's play grounds so the young ones can use up their energy. It's key to note if the children are still in pushchairs Kalkan's steep cobbled streets may be a challenge. Taxis are however plentiful and reasonably priced.

From any of th beach clubs you’ll find plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports including jet ski and snorkelling, and there are a couple of scuba schools too. There are also lovely family-friendly beaches that have sheltered and calm waters that are ideal for swimming, including Kalkan's pebble beach & Kaputas Beach.

For adventurous types try canoeing the Xanthos river, ringos at Saklikent or Horseriding at Patara  are options. All ages enjoy a day at sea in a traditional Turkish Gulet one of Kalkan's best days out and a way to appreciate the natural beauty of the coastline.You can book a trip to the underwater ruins of Kekova.

There are plenty more outdoor activities to keep all entertained. Families can go trekking on the nearby Lycian Way – a myriad of walking paths that take you to top sites including Kayakoy ghost town (an abandoned Greek village), and closer to town the ancient viaduct and Patara ruins.

One thing that will be apparent is Turks are family orientated and love to welcome children to their restaurants or other businesses. The perfect place for a family holiday.

    Fabulous Villa in superb location. Everything you need for your holidays and more! Would love to return one day.
