Escape to five bedroomed Villa Libra, a beautifully designed and located villa, set high upon a hill on the coast and providing glorious views across the Mediteranean Sea.  The seaview is simply breathtaking, and you can't ever tire of it.

Architects have adopted an open space layout throughout the entirety of the villa, so you can choose to admire the grandeur that surrounds you and your fellow travellers while in close proximity or enjoy the personal and private space such a design offers. Exterior grounds are kept immaculately presented and remain spaciously laid out, so everyone always has leeway!

The ground floor opens up to a vast living room, perfect for unwinding after a day of memorable activities as a gentle breeze floats in through open sliding doors into the room. Conveniently, the contemporarily designed kitchen is located at the rear of the ground floor, so tuck into meals in the dining area or hop from the sofa for some snacks and drinks.

Exit the living room through the sliding doors and prepare to have your breath taken away from the views the grounds provide! Dine alfresco at the shaded, outdoor dining table with the whole family, as you watch the sunset on the coast of Antalya and across the Mediterranean Sea! The infinity pool will allow children and adults alike to enjoy unlimited amounts of fun and feel as if they are swimming at the top of a waterfall! Comfortable sun-loungers, large sofas and expertly manicured gardens complete Villa Libra's first-class exterior!

Holidaymakers will have a selection of five bedrooms to escape and snooze in! The ground floor master bedroom comes with an en-suite bathroom and opens up to thepool terrace, so you can always go for a dip in the pool. On the first floor, a further three more double bedrooms also with en-suite bathrooms come equipped with balconies, so you can kick back on comfy seats and unwind, watching the twinkling lights from the coastal town at night and from the ships on the sea! A smaller bedroom is also available with a single bed to accommodate children or for larger groups.

The stone built barbecue is yours to be used and Villa Libra offers guests an opportunity for a chef to deliver prepared and marinated meats and vegetables, as well as an additional service of preparing a barbecue feast inhouse!

Seeped in a rich mixture of cultures, Turkey provides an excellent retreat for relaxing, revelling, sight-seeing, learning and dining. The villa is located on the southwestern coast of Turkey, meaning all the delights the coast brings, adds to your experience with Turkish culture.

One of the first coastal delights you can indulge in, include the multitude of beaches around you and across the southern coast. For a more exclusive and tranquil beach experience, visit the golden sand beach of Kaputaş, just a  seven minutes drive from the villa. Kalkan's pebble beach is more central and offer dining and activities right by the seaside, so you can have more relishing experiences after a frolic in the turquoise, azure sea! Patara's long sandy beach, a back drop for the Lycian ruins, is great place for sunbathing and has fabulous sunsets.

The remarkably blue water will make for a perfect place to connect with habitat. The coast here is one of the only parts of Turkey, able to support an abundance of marine life. If you prerfer the underwater life scuba diving is readily available with a couple of schools in Kalkan. Another great day out is a boat trip on a traditional wooden gulet, maybe spotting dolphins or turtles!
 
In just a 30 minute drive from the villa, you can find activities to satisfy any adrenaline seekers in the group! In Kas, or Olu Deniz you can go paragliding across the beautiful southern coast, giving breathtaking panoramic views and make your senses rush! Both solo and tandem flights are offered to accommodate all guests at any level of experience!

Turkey's history is a melting pot of different cultures from Asia, Africa and Europe! Visit Antiphellos Ancient City, a former settlement and port. Explore how life was in the Lycian era as you visit open-air theatres, sculptured tombs cut into the cliffs above the town. Other nearby ancient sites include Tlos, Xanthos, Myra and Letoon.

Turkey is famed for its cuisine which is replicated all across the world. Try the original and authentic Turkish dining experience at the many varied restaurants across the coast! Just a few minutes stroll into the centre of Kalkan will give guests access to so many options for food, you will be clueless as to what to eat! In the same area, guests can shop until they drop at the many stores in the centre and party the night away at bars and clubs with views of the sea!

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.

History and experiences with culture are not hard to find and you will probably spot some places even upon your arrival at Villa Libra. Settlements from the Lycian era are scattered all across Kalkan so take your pick from the many! From an ancient church atop water to the Saklikent Gorge, the second largest gorge in Europe! An hours drive away from the villa, the gorge is 20km long and is the deepest in Turkey.
