You’ll find charming five-bedroomed Villa Harem sequestered on the hillside overlooking picturesque Kalkan town and the Turkish Turquoise Coast. It nods to characteristic Mediterranean features with dark wood accents and Roman-style columns and hints at a modern alter-ego with sleek white-washed walls and contemporary furnishings like chic circular beds and vibrant cushions.

Perhaps the main stand-out feature is the outdoor swimming pool and sun terrace, strategically placed at the edge of the hill, so that you can enjoy sweeping views of the coast and tree-lined bay from on high. Find your prime sunbathing spot on one of the loungers or curl up with your favourite holiday read on the cushioned swinging chair. The villa is complete with a shaded al fresco dining table too – perfect for gathering with family or friends with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset.

Inside, each room is bright and spacious and is fully equipped with the best mod cons. There’s an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, as well as a laundry room. The five bedrooms are spread over three floors, with one on the top floor boasting an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi tub and floor-to-ceiling windows where you can survey the breath-taking landscape from your armchair. The other bedrooms are equally inviting with thoughtful homely touches like dressing tables and mirrors.

For a traditional taste of Turkey, the villa also has a shaded outdoor seating area with a classic patterned Kilim (rug) and a shisha pipe. Having your own kitchen and stone barbeque too means that you can pretend to be a local, haggling at Kalkan’s market for fresh local produce and tasty treats. With the town centre and nearest sandy beach a short drive away, Villa Harem is ideally placed for exploring more of this beautiful part of Turkey.

Villa Harem sits pretty on the hillside, a short drive from the centre of Kalkan on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. This old fishing town, turned popular holiday destination, still retains its old-school charm and laid-back, friendly atmosphere. Head to the harbour with waterfront restaurants or wander the streets with pretty white-washed houses draped in bougainvillaea flowers. With the majestic Taurus Mountains nearby alongside ancient sites, there’s plenty to see and do.

The landscape around Kalkan is diverse in exciting walking trails, including the famous Lycian Way Trail. From gentle half-hour walks to more strenuous full-day excursions, you can discover a wealth of history and culture. Traverse through olive groves or head to spots like the preserved ‘ghost village’ of Kayaköy with hundreds of deserted, Greek-style houses and churches.

For relaxing downtime, there are plenty of beautiful beaches in and around Kalkan, including Kaputas Beach – a stunning cove with turquoise water and sand. There’s also Kalkan’s own beach, close to the harbour, with clear water for snorkelling. Patara Beach is also worth a visit. It’s rich in wildlife and is the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle. It’s also a short stroll from the area’s ancient ruins; a vast theatre as well as impressive Roman baths.

History lovers can continue the culture and visit Tlos in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains. It’s one of the principal cities of Lycia, and you can still see the remains of the Acropolis, fortress, cave tombs and a Roman stadium. For more fun day trips, you can jump on a boat from Kalkan Harbour for a day trip, stopping in various coves. If you drive beyond Kas you can get a boat to go to Kekova island with underwater ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient Lycian settlement. Saklikent Gorge, a beautiful river and 18km canyon is also well worth a visit.

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.

Kalkan is renowned for its pristine, family-friendly beaches. Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach are both excellent choices with calm crystal-clear waters for swimming and snorkelling. Patara is rich in birdlife and is the nesting ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle – see if you can spot one.

For some child-friendly archaeology, you can jump on a boat to visit the sunken remains at Kekova. There you can explore the half-submerged ruins of walls, staircases and the original harbour. There are also plenty more ancient sites in the area including at Tlos with the remains of the acropolis, fortress, cave tombs and a Roman stadium.

Teenagers will love the water sports available around the beach clubs, from sea kayaking and paddle boarding to jet skiing and snorkelling. Kalkan also has plenty of popular dive sites including intriguing caves, caverns and sunken ruins. You can mountain bike, walk or horse ride in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains or join the popular Lycian Way Trail, stopping off at note-worthy sites.
