What Oliver loves…
- Sublime sea views, stunning outdoor space with large fresh-water pool and abundant outdoor living potential
- Only a ten-minute walk to Kalkan’s beach and the harbour (offering an array of quality restaurants), and fifteen minutes on foot to the town centre
- Both bedrooms have en-suites and access to the full-length balcony
Villa Gemlik is a spectacular, contemporary detached villa for up to six guests, nestled in the up-market Komurluk area of Kalkan with views to write home about, just a fifteen-minute walk to the town centre. Set against the cliff-face, clad in local stone with a flat-roofed structure in the local style, this impeccably executed home is finished with architectural panache and modernist styling. Designed to bring in maximum natural light, it has floor-to-ceiling glass on both storeys and a full-length balcony on the first floor.
Six guests can be accommodated (including use of a double sofa bed), with two hotel-standard double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and balcony access. A natural interplay between indoor and outdoor living means al fresco dining is a stylish affair, with a sublime, fresh-water pool overlooking views of the bay. With luscious day beds, elegant parasols and ample shade beneath the veranda, guests can enjoy the outdoors protected from the heat of the day.
Set across two storeys, this home offers all the contemporary touches, with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and Satellite television. Airy, open-plan living space looks out onto the sea vistas, with a minimalist, contemporary finish complete with enormous L-shaped sofa for those down-time moments and feature fireplace. This unfussy and neutral space sits alongside the dining area and kitchen offering granite work surfaces and top-grade appliances, making self-catering a breeze.
Guests are ensured a restorative stay with the exquisite bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, stunning views and balcony access. Finessed with grace, they have crisp, quality linen and the master has a sumptuous velveteen chaise-longue. Wandering out for morning coffee on the balcony will ease you into the day nicely!
The outdoor space comprises pool with infinity edge and Roman steps for graded entry, spacious terrace area together with shaded pergola and a second pergola with Ottoman-style seating, meaning poolside dinners overlooking the beautiful sea views are in order, or pool-side breakfasts after a refreshing morning dip.
For a seamless stay, in a meticulously finished independent home, with easy access to all that Kalkan has to offer, Villa Gemlik delivers every time.

- Ample outdoor terrace space, full-length balcony and dining areas - but no grassy lawns

This prestigious villa is in a smart area of Kalkan - the Komurluk area, just moments from one of Kalkan’s most popular beach clubs. Access to the harbour can be reached via free water taxi from nearby Palm Beach Club, which is a few minutes walk away.
The beach club provides direct access to the sea via stunning sun-deck and small private beach. Sun loungers and parasols are available for hire, and there is also an excellent sea view restaurant.
Originally a local town of winding cobbled lanes and traditional sea-food restaurants, today Kalkan is a bustling town with colourful markets, vibrant bars and restaurants as well as charming boutiques and artisanal fare. Kalkan is set on one of the most beautiful parts of Turkey’s ‘Turquoise Coast’ and offers endless boating and water sports potential. Boat trips, whether by gulet (traditional wooden fishing boat) or yacht, are a memorable way to explore hidden coves and islands. Stopping off for snorkelling, or a local lunch of gozleme (flatbread) will be a pleasure.
Kalkan is a historically enchanting place, remaining an unspoiled haven of luscious nature, crystal-clear azure sea, historic architecture, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality. Known for its proximity to ancient Lycian sites (around 20 major sites) and distinctive funerary architecture, history buffs will be in their element.
With the majestic Taurus mountain range as a backdrop, access to local life and traditional cuisine, this part of Turkey has much to love, and remains free of mass-tourism.
Zest Beach Club
Kalkan Public Beach
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 Gemlik provides a stunning space for the whole family to enjoy the turquoise coat and all that Kalkan has to offer, complete with seamlessly equipped contemporary living, together with pool and outdoor space.
Çocuklar (children) are much loved in Turkish culture, and they will be welcome wherever they go, while the turquoise coast has excellent beaches for the whole family and plenty of water parks for days out. The beach club offers an array of activities, and the beach at Kalkan offers safe, sparkling clear waters.
Patara Beach is particularly magnificent, only fifteen minutes from Kalkan. Whilst Oludeniz, with its clear waters and fine sands is considered one of the most family-friendly beaches on offer. Oludeniz Waterworld Aquapark is sure to be a hit, complete with an array of pools, chutes and slides.
Water sports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice, with everything from kayaking to paddle-boarding and jet-skiing. For older children, sea kayaking and horse-riding are on offer, while a day trip to the Greek island of Meis will leave them with lasting memories.
