What Oliver loves…
- The villa is sea facing with breath-taking views of Kalamar Bay. It’s in a peaceful and quiet spot set up on the mountainside yet, within easy reach of Kalkan town with plenty of shops, restaurants and beach clubs.
- Pool towels are provided for your use and cleaning and linen changes are carried out on a weekly basis so you swim or beach to your heart’s content.
- With a BBQ, table tennis table and private swimming pool – the facilities at Villa Meltem are second to none.
Villa Meltem is a luxurious four-bedroom villa overlooking the breath-taking Kalamar Bay and boasts the majestic Taurus Mountains as a backdrop. From the villa, it’s only 100 metres to a quiet turquoise cove with a soft sandy beach and crystal-clear calm swimming waters, and you’re within walking distance of charming Kalkan town with an eclectic mix of Greek and Turkish architecture.
The villa itself elegantly combines traditional Mediterranean architecture with cool contemporary interiors. Outside, the building is minimalist with whitewashed walls and tinted-blue glass balconies picking out the hues in the sky and the sea. Inside, the rooms are airy, welcoming and spacious with natural-coloured furnishings, playful pops of colour and expansive windows letting in the light.
For a relaxing home-from-home experience, there’s a large, open-plan living, kitchen and dining area equipped with appliances such as a dishwasher, coffee machine and washing machine. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, and there’s Wi-Fi throughout. You’ll also find a TV and DVD player to keep you entertained on those chilled evenings in and a BBQ for dining outside in the warm weather.
Set over three wonderful floors, you’ll find the fourth room, a twin bedroom, accessed from the frony garden terrace at Villa Meltem. The main house houses two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, all with sea view balconies. The master double bedroom boasts a Jacuzzi and access to a furnished roof terrace which also has fabulous coastal views. All rooms are equally seductive and stylish and have en-suite bathrooms.
Making the most of the serene setting, you have a private outdoor swimming pool and a terrace that’s dotted with furniture and umbrellas – perfect for sun-lounging in peace or enjoying a refreshing drink after dinner. Oh, and did we mention there’s a shaded al fresco dining area (to accommodate eight), a table tennis table and an outdoor shower too? The villa really packs in the benefits to bring you an idyllic family-friendly holiday in a peaceful and popular part of Turkey.
What you should know…
- The twin bedroom is separately accessed from the front garden and isn't inside the main part of the house so would not be suitable for young children, however it's fitted to s similar standard as the other rooms.
- The villa is secure however there’s a safe for extra peace of mind.
- The road down to Kalkan is walkable but steep in places, probably easier on the way down than back up! If you don't hire a car we'd suggest a local taxi as they are very reasonably priced.

Villa Meltem is set in a peaceful spot overlooking beautiful Kalamar Bay on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. It’s slightly west of the old fishing town of Kalkan and has the majestic pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains as backdrop. The quiet cove is sheltered and is a popular place to simply swim in the crystal-clear turquoise waters or take part in water sports like kayaking, scuba diving or jet skiing.
A short walk from Kalamar Bay takes you into Kalkan centre with an exquisite harbour dotted with Turkish wooden gulets (boats), waterfront restaurants and a beautiful and historic old town area which extends back from the sea. Wander the streets with houses draped in brightly coloured bougainvillaea flowers or dine on a roof terrace restaurant with spectacular views of the town. There are also plenty of swimming beaches in Kalkan and Turkish Baths for a relaxing end-of-day massage.
To immerse yourself in the rich history of this charming part of Turkey, you can visit the Church turned mosque by Kalkan's harbour. Venturing furthering afield you can take a boat trip to visit various stunning bay or from nearby Kas to the small island of Kekova where you can snorkel and explore the part sunken ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the 2nd century, known as the sunken city.
For outdoor adventurers, the dramatic Taurus Mountains with deeply cut valleys and canyons are an ideal place to hike. You could also join the popular Lycian Way – a long-distance footpath that takes you around the coast. The route stops at great Lycian sites including the aquaduct betweenCavdir and Uzumlu with abandoned Greek buildings. Lycian sites in the area include Patara, Xanthos, Letton and Tlos to name a few. The bohemian town of Kas is a 30 minute drive, while the resort town of Fethiye is a one-hour drive away.

Patara Lycian ruins & beach
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.
With a private outdoor pool and enclosed grounds with shaded areas, Villa Meltem is the ideal villa for families with children. The nearest beach clubs with calm waters – perfect for younger swimmers – alongside water sports and scuba diving opportunities is within a 300 metre walk.
The centre of Kalkan, is a 20 minute walk away. Here you’ll find plenty of family-friendly restaurants, alongside shops and supermarkets for pick up essentials. Venturing further afield, you can take a boat trip to local bays or sea kayak over half submerged ruins at the small island of Kekova (1 hr away).
For cultural trips, adults and kids alike can enjoy the more bohemian town of Kas, a 30-40 minute drive away from Kalkan. Nearby Patara has something for everyone with the Lycian ruins, including a lighthouse said to be the oldest ever discovered and a government building where it's believe democracy was first practiced. The 12 km sandy beach at Patara is great for sunbathing or watching the amazing sunsets.
