What Oliver loves…
- Breath-taking views of Kalkan & Kalamar Bays
- Fabulous locating facing the coast. It’s in a peaceful spot, yet Kalkan centre with its restaurants and beaches is a short near enough to walk
- If you can't be bothered to cook or leave the villa several of the restaurants are happy to deliver, same goes for some of the supermarkets
- There is really nothing nicer than cooling off in the jacuzzi or pool after a hard day at the beach or an evening socialising in Kalkan's old town.

Villa Kekik is in a peaceful location in Kalkan and has panoramic views of the both Kalamar and Kalkan bays and the Turkish Mediterranean coast below. It’s a short 20-minute downhill walk to the local restaurants, shops and amenities in the lively town centre. This incredibly beautiful part of Turkey offers a compelling combination of unspoilt rural terrain, top eateries and historic cultural sites.
Cosmopolitan Kalkan has plenty of beach clubs, vibrant waterfront bars and rooftop restaurants for tasting the local cuisine. The town has the majestic Taurus Mountains as a backdrop (which you can explore by mountain biking or walking), alongside an exquisite harbour full of Turkish wooden gulets (boats), and a beautiful and historic old town which extends back from the sea. You can wander the streets full of traditional houses or visit the small boutiques and markets for handmade souvenirs.
There are also plenty of swimming beaches in and near Kalkan including Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach, both favourite spots to swim due to their clear and calm waters. You can also take part in water sports like scuba diving or sea kayaking, or head out on a gulet to experience the full beauty of the coast, stopping of in glistening bays and enjoying a healthy lunch cooked by the crew.
From Kalkan, you can take a day trip to Saklikent Gorge,as well as several Lycian cities such as Patara, Xanthos, Tlos and Letoon. Kas is a 30 minute drive and for a cool off head to Islamlar in the mountains above Kalkan and enjoy a fresh water trout lunch in one of it's several restaurants.

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 Kekik has a private swimming pool and plenty of shaded spots outside for children to play safely. Kalkan’s town centre with a harbour, pebble beach and restaurants is within a 20-minute walk. There are a few childrens play grounds scattered around the town. In the harbour is a traditional ice cream seller, here are plenty of flavours on offer. Turks are family orientated and they are very hospitable to young and old. Children will always be welcomed in any restaurant.
In Kalkan town itself, you’ll find a fantastic selection of family-friendly water sports including scuba diving and snorkelling. There are also lovely beaches that have sheltered and calm waters and soft sands, including Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach.The area around Kalkan also specialises in historic sites with a range of intriguing ruins nearby that promise a great day out for the kids. You can also jump on a boat to explore the coastline and stop off for swimming and snorkelling.
There are plenty more outdoor activities to keep all entertained. In the cooler months, families can go trekking on the nearby Lycian Way – a myriad of walking paths that runs from Antalya to Fethiye. There is horse riding at Patara and you can book Canoeing on the Xanthos river.

Oh ...those views..amazing
This villa is pretty amazing. The first thing that gets you is the views of both Kalamar and Kalkan bays. The pool is huge, the jacuzzi is great and there is an ottoman area if you want to chill in the shade.
The villa is well appointed, and should you have a problem the owner is very responsive, and friendly. Nothing was a problem.
Actually it was pretty hard to drag ourselves away. We even arranged food and drinks to be delivered by a local supermarket.
Kalkan is quite a special place, do go to a rooftop restaurant and wander the streets of an evening. Do visit one of the beach clubs and also do a boat trip. Patara beach has a great sunset too. We used taxis to and from the villa, they were less than £5 and very efficient, plus nice drivers.
Just going back to the villa, Villa Kekik is pretty special, so shhhsh, please keep it to yourself.....
Fabulous...and that view
We stayed at Villa Kekik as a group of 9 people. When we arrived the view was amazing, you can see both bays from the pool terrace.
The villa was spacious so we could be in different places without feeling on top of each other. We cooked in a few times and used the large gas barbecue. there was a number for someone to deliver drinks and groceries. We walked down a few times but the walk up was quite a challenge, so we used the very reasonable taxis.
We visited the owners restaurant in Islamlar, went on a boat trip, had a wonderful Hamam and enjoyed the sunset at Patara beach. Kalkan is pretty special. It was all magical.
