Villa Ece has a gorgeous position, located in the quiet and elevated residential area of Kiziltas. Elegant and modern this five-bedroom property has glorious views across the bay, a large infinity pool and alfresco dining area, ideal for sea gazing over long family dinners. Larger parties can combine with the identical sister villa, Villa Emin, next door. The wonderfully picturesque town of Kalkan is less than a ten minute drive away. Kalkan offers everything you could possibly want from a Mediterranean resort town, a postcard harbour setting, exquisite cuisine, weekly markets, artisan boutiques and laid back beach clubs. Not far away, are some of the wider region’s best bits, Saklikent Gorge, the ancient city of Xanthos and Patara Beach.

Guests will enjoy the large private swimming pool and dramatic views across the bay and towards Mouse and Snake Islands. The pristine pool deck is furnished with days beds for ten guests and fluttering parasols. There is also an en plein air lounge with plump and inviting rattan furniture, slump into a cosy corner and switch off in the serene summer sun. A shaded pergola stretches the length of the side of the villa, under which is the generous alfresco dining terrace and bbq area. Gather with friends and family for peaceful lounging, leisurely poolside lunches or lengthy summer suppers as the sun slinks below the horizon.

Inside, the ground floor is home to the roomy open plan living space. Villa Ece enjoys bright-white interiors punctuated by grey and yellow homey furnishings. While you may not have come on holiday to cook, the kitchen is fully fitted with everything you could need to cater a culinary masterpiece. The sitting and dining room overlooks the indigo sea and pool terrace providing a wonderful inside space to gather, if respite from the sun is required. A games room with ping pong, billiards and sports equipment will provide hours of entertainment for the active within the group.

Upstairs the soothing neutral palette continues. The five en-suite bedrooms are all stylish and generously proportioned, three are doubles and two have single twin beds. More sea views can be soaked up from at least three of the bedrooms and one even has a large furnished sundeck with day beds for some private intimate downtime.

Surrounded by family and friends in a second to none location with all you could possibly need, there is little reason to leave. But in case you do, Kalkan will tick all the boxes, delivering everything you need for the most memorable family holiday

With its treasure trove of cobbled streets, Ottoman-Greek architecture, laid back beach clubs and glamorous roof top restaurants-Kalkan is a great pick for a multi-generational family holiday, intimate escape or group of friends travelling together.

Delve beyond the initial first attraction and discover absolute authenticity. Make time to experience the local heritage, sleepy mountain villages sit out of sight inland. A few of the closest are Islamar, Saribelen and Bezirgan. The natural scenery is spectacular and the culture thought provoking. These hidden corners are where a true taste of Turkey can be enjoyed. Many hours can be squandered in tiny village shops where they sell the most authentic and delicious rose-water Turkish Delight and heady scented spices. Visit simple lokanta style restaurants and eat local delicacies at local prices. Make time to stop off at a cay garden and listen to the hum of activity, the fluttering of cards, clattering of dice, as well of course as the slurping of Turkish Cay.

The region is a haven for ramblers, historical and archaeological enthusiasts. The Lycian Way Walking Trail has been considered one of the ten best walks in the world. This 300 mile stretch is an ancient trail and mule road. On foot, discover many remote Lycian rock tombs, roman roads, aqueducts and ancient classical sites accompanied by dramatic views from virtually every direction. Ancient sites are in abundance in this region and with so many within a short drive of Kalkan it is easy to combine a morning at perhaps Tlos with an afternoon relaxing by the pool.

Back to the coast, one of the most sought after holiday experiences in Turkey is to cruise on a traditional wooden gulet. A truly relaxing journey with the freedom to set your own pace. Whether the decision is to embark in Kalkan, Kas or even Kekova a succession of memorable seascapes await, remote coves, rugged peninsulas, little villages and thriving harbour towns. There are many stops for swimming, snorkelling and some vessels even have non-motorised water sports. Lunch is usually served aboard, freshly prepared in the galley, and raved about as one of the holiday culinary highlights.

On those days when relaxing hangtime is all that is needed, there are many waterside options to pick from. Bare-foot beach clubs pepper the shoreline and offer an upmarket experience with lots of facilities making it easy to relax by the water’s edge. If an ‘actual beach’ is more enticing than bathing platforms, there is the public beach in the centre. Within a 15 minute drive of Kalkan, Kaputas and Patara are worthy of expedition. Both justly famous, Kaputas is often featured on the front of travel guides for its luminous turquoise waters and Patara celebrated for its classical ancient site and never ending golden sands.

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.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Ece is an ideal choice for a family holiday. Conveniently located, within a pleasant 90 minute journey of Dalaman Airport, and with so much to see and do in and around Kalkan, the entire family are bound to enjoy a relaxing and entertaining escape. Days can easily be spent lingering by the large swimming pool and making the most of the games room. We recommend venturing out on some occasions to experience the vast, varied landscape and vibrant culture too.

Saklikent Gorge is the second longest in Europe. Its length is 18 kilometres and throughout its path are hidden caves, steep jagged cliffs and many waterfalls. It is well worth a visit, providing a few hours of exhilarating fun for the whole family. Trek through the icy cold water en-familie and admire the dramatic scenery, or raft down the fast flowing Xanthos river. The area is a National Park, steeped in natural beauty and flanked by heavy pine tree coverage. After so much activity, refresh at one of the many waterside restaurants with kosk style seating. Swing in a hammock, while enjoying a gozleme and watch the ducks glide along the water. Or continue on, just up the road, to the ancient ruined Lycian hilltop citadel Tlos.

Relaxing afternoons can be spent at one of Kalkan’s well known beaches. The public pebble beach is in the town centre. Sheltered and gently shelving, it’s a great pit stop with little people who want to splash around and gain some confidence in the shallows. Not far from Kalkan is Patara Beach, nature reserve and ancient site. The area is a breeding ground to the endangered loggerhead turtles who return to lay their eggs. Sometimes, it’s even possible to watch the hatchlings making their debut towards the sea- an unforgettable experience for nature lovers. Patara has sand in abundance so is great for sandcastles and other creations. The current at the beach means children will need to be supervised in the water.

The sunken city of Kekova is the perfect balance of child-friendly history and water based activity. Paddle in kayaks over the submerged ruins while listening to the history from one of the enthusiastic guides.

Back in Kalkan, teenagers will love the water sports centre based in the heart of the village. They have the fastest and newest toys available and some more gentle non-motorised options too, such as stand-up-paddleboarding. Kalkan also attracts many divers, as it is one of the best dive sites in Turkey. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a try dive and for more experienced divers there are many reefs to visit too.
