Four-bedroom Villa Kordere is a family-friendly gem in Kalkan, Turkey. Set in the peaceful foothills of the majestic Taurus Mountains, you get fantastic views of the tree-lined hillside and sweeping coastline below. Kick back on a cushioned lounger by your private swimming pool that looks as if it's spilling straight into the sea – complete with mini water fountain. With plenty of chairs, too and an alfresco dining table, the terrace is the perfect place to catch rays or while away the afternoon.

The villa is elegantly furnished throughout with modern decor and furniture in a fresh and cool colour palette. Inside, you’ll find the spacious living room with a dining table to seat up to ten guests and sofas for relaxing on after a long day of exploring. With glass sliding doors, light flows into the villa, and from the living room, you can step straight out onto the pool terrace.

There’s also an American-style kitchen, fully-equipped with everything you’d need for a self-catering stay, like an oven, a microwave, a dishwasher and a washing machine. There’s an en-suite bedroom on the ground floor, too – perfect for those who have limited mobility or who would like some extra privacy.

On the first floor, you’ll find the other three en-suite bedrooms – one with a bathtub and a large balcony, from where you can survey the beautiful surroundings and catch a sunset. For your comfort, air conditioning and Wi-Fi comes as standard at this villa, and there’s a smaller pool for kids.

If you’d like to go exploring, you’re well placed to discover this beautiful part of Turkey. Make a beeline for one of the beaches or into Kalkan Town with its boat-dotted harbour, quaint streets lined with houses and shops, and its famous markets and waterfront restaurants.

Villa Kordere is set in the foothills of the majestic tree-lined Taurus Mountains in Kalkan, Turkey. It’s a short drive from the centre of Kalkan – a vibrant town known for its charming character, stunning architecture and striking natural scenery. With a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere and plenty of things to do and see around the area, this villa is an ideal choice for families and couples alike.

Because Kalkan is at the base of the Taurus mountains, there are plenty of fantastic walking, biking and hiking routes. Most people use Kalkan as a base to explore the nearby Lycian ruins – exciting ancient sites – or engage in the many local activities like snorkelling. You can’t come to this beautiful part of Turkey without exploring the charming villages of Xanthos, Patara and Myra either.

In the town, you can visit one of the bustling markets where you’ll find everything from spices to hand-made rugs, produce and jewellery or browse the boutique shops. Look out for stalls selling fresh gozleme (savoury pancakes). Stop off for a drink and bite to eat at one of the waterfront cafes or famous roof-top restaurants, which offer fantastic food and unrivalled views of the bay.

In Kalkan, you can also take your pick from a selection of stunning golden beaches. There’s Kalkan beach near the marina, and Kaputas, a scenic sandy cove about 7km east of Kalkan. Patara Beach is also a popular choice. Most of the beaches have beach clubs which offer sports like sea kayaking, scuba diving and parasailing, and have decking with chairs and loungers, plus restaurants.

For a fun day trip, you can jump on a boat from Kalkan harbour to explore the surrounding bays and coves. Boats also leave Kas (a 30-minute drive away) to the island of Kekova where there are half-submerged ancient 2nd-century ruins – discover them via swimming, snorkelling or sea kayaking.

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

With an enclosed private pool and garden area, plenty of places to play in the shade, and the sea a short drive away, Villa Kordere is an ideal choice for families with children.

The nearest beaches from the villa include Kalkan, Kaputas and Patara. They all have crystal-clear and calm waters that are ideal for younger swimming. The beaches also boast beach clubs with restaurants, sun loungers and opportunities to take part in adrenaline-fuelled water sports.

In the cooler months, you can go walking in the foothill of the Taurus Mountains and explore the surrounding forests and olive groves. You could also jump on a traditional wooden boat from Kalkan harbour to traverse the coastline, stopping for swimming and snorkelling, or head further afield to Kas where glass-bottomed boats take you to the island of Kekova with half-sunken ruins. Top ancient sites that promise an exciting day out include Xanthos, Patara and Myra.
