Ideal for Kids Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Villa Ceren is a modern and substantial seven-bedroom villa with spectacular sea and island views. This established house is located in a pleasant and quiet residential area of Kiziltas, less than ten minutes by car from the centre of Kalkan- arguably the most picturesque harbour town on the southwest coast of Turkey.

Among its finest features are the dramatic infinity pool with glorious sea views over the Bay of Kalkan. Bathe effortlessly in your pool paradise while sea gazing under the intense Turkish sun. The pool deck and spacious terrace is comfortably furnished with a scattering of day beds and parasols. The roomy alfresco dining area is sheltered under a pergola, creating an ideal spot for barbecuing and dining under the moonlight. The entire outside space is walled with thick jasmine and sprawling bougainvillea creating a peaceful oasis in which to relax and unwind.

Generously proportioned and built on three floors, the house has been designed to maximise the sea views from every aspect. The large, cool interiors have a neutral palette creating a tasteful and laid back ambience. The open plan kitchen, dining and living space is enormous and made for socialising on cooler days at the beginning and end of season. Double Height glass windows create an airy feel throughout and imbibe the magnificent seascape beyond. Bifold doors provide a feeling of inside-outside living and it’s effortless to drift between the two spaces.

Each of the seven bedrooms are en-suite, air conditioned and located on the first and second floors. Minimalist interior design is aesthetically pleasing and creates a feeling of light throughout. Five bedrooms are double, with yet more views out to sea. There are also two twin rooms ideal for children sharing.

The large roof terrace provides a bird’s eye view of Kalkan and the most awe inspiring sweeping views across the bay and tumbling terrain. A place to sit back and enjoy a little slice of paradise while sipping a glass of wine or two! Villa Ceren is an excellent choice for several families taking a holiday together, or a large group of friends, its spacious and modern with all the facilities you could need to create a memorable holiday.

Kalkan is a fabulous find for a summer holiday. Once an old fishing village, today it has grown into an elegant harbourside holiday destination attracting a discerning clientele. The town rises from an idyllic seafront setting and has retained much of its traditional charm due to strict conservation restrictions. Small and Niche, Kalkan is well-known for it’s Ottoman Greek architecture, pretty pebble beach, bare-foot beach clubs, authentic Thursday market and especially famous for its rooftop restaurants.

Kalkan isn’t necessarily the most obvious beach resort, featuring just one pebble beach near the harbour. However, there are several excellent beach clubs peppered around the bay and they are very much a place for gathering as well as relaxing by the seafront. Cleverly built into the rockface are wooden and stone platforms dressed with teak day beds and fluttering parasols. Steps lead into the crystal clear water and hours can easily be spent sea gazing under the shade of an olive tree or socialising at the low-key waterfront bar.

A wide range of water sports are available from the local centre including wake-boarding, jet-skiing, and paddle boarding. Lessons are also offered for anyone who wants to brush up on their skills or try something new. Diving is another popular sporting activity in Kalkan, the team are based in Kalamar and there are options to enjoy a full certified course, just give it a try and tailor made trips to one of the fourteen reefs.

Back on land, you might want to head into the mountains and explore remote rural villages such as Saribelen and Bezirgan or go further afield to the Emerald Lake in Gombe. You don’t have to go too far to experience an insight into real rural Turkish Life and the scenery is magnificently varied.

Kalkan sits in the heart of ancient Lycia and the area is sprinkled with ancient cultural sites. With so many within a short distance it is worth visiting one or two and combining the day with a trip to a less discovered beach.

Throughout the entire region there is an incredible amount to offer, sun-drenched beaches, magnificent wildlife, awe-inspring scenery and a colourful history.

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.

Villa Ceren is a wonderful choice for a family holiday, days can easily be spent jumping in and out of the pool. While out and about in Kalkan, you are only ever within a short distance of an activity suitable for the entire family. With so many places of interest in striking distance, activities can be combined, a morning spent on horseback trotting along Patara beach and the afternoon wading through icy cold water at Saklikent Gorge.

Kalkan dates to the Hellenistic period and sits in the middle of what was once Ancient Lycia. The area is steeped in history and littered with archaeological sites many of which are rarely visited. With so many sarcophagi, amphitheatres and agora’s to see we recommend picking just a couple, you are bound to have the place to yourselves to explore.

If there are any junior master chefs in the group you may enjoy a visit to Kuru’s place. This activity is fun for children but certainly not limited to them. Learn to cook traditional Turkish meze with the charming Huseyin. There is the opportunity to pick the freshest ingredients straight from the garden and visit some suppliers. The lesson will then take place back in his restaurant kitchen and once the dishes are complete you can sit back and enjoy a sumptuous feast that you have created.
Board one of the many wooden boats and explore the islands and coves around Kalkan. During the day the gulet stops several times to explore local caves with plenty of opportunity for swimming, and fishing. A delicious lunch and afternoon tea is usually served on board.

A little further afield, just beyond Kas, is the sunken city of Kekova. The ancient city was once joined to the mainland but after a series of earthquakes the city sank into the sea. Today the site is best observed in kayaks, it is possible to go in a single or double . The water is usually wonderfully calm and the area is sheltered, you will see mosaics and underwater foundations that are almost 2000 years old.

Early morning, it might be nice to explore a section of the famous Lycian Way walking trail. Experience a real insight into Turkish village life while enjoying the dramatic scenery. Tandem paragliding is another popular choice, descend from Kas or Babadag mountain and see the sites and turquoise coast from another perspective.
