Villa Gunebakan is an ultra-modern and swanky villa nestled in the mountains. Travellers who adore nature and want a luxurious home to enjoy it all from will be right at home at this villa. What's better than waking up to such beautiful vistas each morning?
The sun loungers lined up poolside look out onto the wonderful scenery so that you can dry off in between dips in the pool while taking in the wonderful views. The pool comes complete with a small ladder for easy access and looks out onto the magical horizon. An attractive seating area situated on the pool terrace looks out at the islands and dazzling sea waters. This is the place to come to for a tasty afternoon cocktail. Outside, you will also discover a charming dining area where elegant evening meals can be enjoyed.
Villa Gunebakan boasts a bright interior with plenty of large windows magnifying the lovely natural light that lights up the home. The brilliant open plan design emphasises space and light. Multiple balconies mean that you can admire mesmerising vistas from almost anywhere in the house and the roof terrace is the ultimate sun-catching spot.
The master suite provides the ultimate luxury as it comes equipped with a plush L-shaped sofa and an en suite behind glass doors that contains both a bathtub and a shower.

Kalkan Beach is only eight hundred meters away and is home to the lovely Kalamar Beach Club. The club has the best of both worlds and is both a relaxing retreat where guests can enjoy peace in the sunshine and a fantastic site for watersports.
With snorkelling, scuba diving, trampolining in the sea and diving at the dive centre available, those looking for a thrill won't be disappointed here. Alternatively, grabbing a sun lounger and admiring the dazzling views above the glistening waters sounds like a day well spent.
Kalamaki is a nearby restaurant serving delectable European and Turkish cuisines as well as providing vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Here you can enjoy your meal on the amazing roof terrace and gaze over vistas that you simply don't get to see every day.
Due to its tasty menu, it's advised that you book in advance to ensure you not only reserve a table but you reserve one of the most desirable in the whole venue. The calamari, Turkish meatballs, sea bass and steak are favourites amongst visitors to this restaurant and can be deliciously washed down with a selection from the wine list. This romantic spot is ideal for couples seeking a blissful evening away together and boasts a menu with something for everyone.
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.
Kalkan Beach Park is a fun-filled water park located right on the beach, only a few kilometres away from the villa.
Kids will love using the water slide to jump into the sea and trampoline situated in the water! It's easy to spend the whole day here as there is plenty to do, even if that just means relaxing with a colourful alcohol-free mocktail specially created for kids!
At Patara Amphitheatre kids can use their imaginations to delve into times gone by. The ruins which are now partly buried in the sand are a fascinating site and slice of history.
Built all the way back in 147 A.D, the theatre is an example of ancient Turkey and is a great way for kids to get a history lesson without them realising. The views from the top of the site are inspiring and present lovely and memorable photo opportunities that will turn into lifelong memories.
