Overview

Pool Self-Catered Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite

Set in an enviable spot overlooking the azure Kalkan coast, three-bedroomed Villa Baykus is your perfect base in Turkey. This stylish villa ticks off all the holiday favourites – prime beach postcode, private outdoor swimming pool and comfortable, modern furnishings, and then dials up the luxury some more. We’re taking a large terrace area that really makes the most of the photo-worthy views, as well as contemporary décor in the form of a calming colour palate.

Inside, you’ll find everything you’d need for a self-catering stay. There’s a spacious, open-plan living, kitchen and dining area with an indoor dining table seating up to eight, as well as a large television and comfy sofas and chairs. The villa also boasts a dishwasher – so cleaning up after meals is easy – and a washing machine so you don’t need to worry about getting sandy down at the beach. From this room, large glass sliding doors lead straight onto the sun lounger-lined terrace. Here, there’s an alfresco dining table – hello meals with views – plus a barbeque and a handy outdoor shower.

Villa Baykus is spread across four floors. There’s an extra under-cover seating area on the ground floor, and you’ll find two of the bedrooms – one double and one twin room – on the first floor. Both have glass windows which let in the beautiful natural light and benefit from their own bathrooms and sweeping balcony. The other double bedroom is in the loft – it’s a cute and cosy space, which also has a bathroom and a balcony. Air conditioning comes as standard across the villa, so you can get some cooling reprieve from the warming Mediterranean sun when you need to.

Looking to go exploring? No problem. It’s only a short 250-metre stroll to Kisla Beach. This beach flaunts a soft, sandy shore and is one of several around the bay with a beach club. So, there’s a restaurant, bar, sunbathing platforms and slides going into the sea there. The villa’s also a short stroll from local restaurants shops, and a slightly longer walk to the centre of Kalkan Town.

What you should know…

  • The villa is set on an incline so it’s easier walking down to the beach that it is getting back.

Villa Baykus flaunts a fantastic spot, overlooking Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. It’s in the laid-back village of Kalamar, and has the majestic pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains as backdrop. In this quiet part of southern Turkey, you’re only a 250-metre walk from the nearest beach. At this sandy spot, you’ll find calm waters – its sheltered in a bay – as well as beach club with bars, restaurants and places to sunbathe. The villa’s a short 200-300 metre walk from local restaurants and shops, too.

A short 2.4km walk from the villa will take you into Kalkan Town, where there’s a charming harbour dotted with Turkish wooden gulets – traditional boats – as well as waterfront restaurants and a beautiful and historic old town area which extends back from the sea. Spend afternoons wandering the cobbled lanes, with houses draped in brightly coloured bougainvillaea flowers, or dine on a roof terrace restaurant with spectacular views of the town and the coastline. There are also plenty of swimming beaches in Kalkan, as well as Turkish Baths if you’d like a relaxing end-of-day massage.

To immerse yourself in the rich history, you can take a boat trip to the small island of Kekova where you can snorkel and explore the part sunken ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the 2nd century. For outdoor adventurers, the dramatic Taurus Mountains with deeply cut valleys and canyons are an ideal place to hike. You could join the popular Lycian Way – a long-distance footpath that takes in great views.

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 outdoor pool, three spacious bedrooms and plenty of space for the family to relax together, Villa Baykus is ideal for a family-friendly holiday. It’s in a peaceful spot of Turkey, yet is only a short walk from shops, restaurants and sheltered sandy beaches for swimming.  

The nearest sandy beach with calm waters – perfect for younger swimmers – alongside water sports opportunities like jet skiing, sea kayaking and snorkelling is only a short 250-metre walk away. There’s a beach club there too, so you can pick up snacks and the restaurant or bar.

The centre of Kalkan is also within walking distance where you’ll find plenty of family-friendly restaurants, as well as exciting old streets to explore. Venturing further afield, you can take a boat trip or sea kayak over half submerged ruins at the small island of Kekova. For more 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.
