Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

With three charming bedrooms, a spacious outdoor pool and sun terrace, Villa Meral is an ideal family-friendly choice. The curved villa is bright and welcoming with whitewashed walls and pops of colour in the artwork and soft furnishings. Ideally located in Kalkan on Turkey’s turquoise coast, you get the best of both worlds – a peaceful and private spot that’s a short walk from the centre of town with its famous roof-top restaurants, cobbled streets and beautiful boat-lined harbour.

The large open-plan living, kitchen and dining room has natural-coloured furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows and doors creating an extra feeling of light and space. You’ll have no trouble preparing meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, while the lounge with comfortable sofas provides the perfect place for families to get together and chill or plan the next day’s exciting excursions. The living room leads directly out onto the terrace and swimming pool, which is surrounded by greenery and carefully placed loungers so you can make the most of the sun or the shade.

There are three bedrooms: a double en-suite and twin en-suite on the first floor, and a quaint attic room with two single beds and a toilet just outside the room. Each room has plenty of wardrobe space and is air-conditioned to keep you cool in those warmer months. Apart from all these fantastic facilities, the villa’s crowning glory is perhaps its panoramic balcony, where you can survey the beautiful mountainous surrounds, town and bay below or simply relax on the cushioned chairs.

Villa Meral is only 500 metres from the nearest local restaurant and food market, 1.5km from the town centre and 2.8km from Kalkan beach. It’s also close to public transport links, so you can head further afield to towns like Kas and Fethiye. With its scenic harbour, sandy swimming beaches and plenty of activities on offer, it’s the ideal starting out point to explore this fantastic part of Turkey.

What you should know…

  • The villa is built on the slope so it’s easier getting to the town than it is getting back.

Kalkan is a historic fishing village turned popular holiday destination on Turkey’s glistening turquoise coast. The harbourside town is built largely on tree-lined hills that look down on an almost-perfect bay. It’s famous for its harbour dotted with boats and cobbled old streets. Visit one of the bustling markets where you’ll find everything from spices to hand-made rugs, produce and jewellery or browse the boutiques. 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 have dinner at one of the trademark roof-top restaurants, offering fantastic food and unrivalled views of the bay.

Most people use Kalkan as a base to visit the nearby Lycian ruins – exciting ancient sites – or engage in the many local activities. Apart from Kalkan beach near the marina, and Kaputas, a scenic sandy cove about 7km east of Kalkan en route to the cosmopolitan town of Kas (a 30-minute drive), watery activities include beach clubs which offer sports like sea kayaking, scuba diving and parasailing. For more aquatic adventures, you can jump on a traditional boat from Kalkan harbour to explore the surrounding bays and coves. Boats also leave Kas to the island of Kekova where there are half-submerged ancient 2nd-century ruins. Discover them via swimming, snorkelling or sea kayaking.

You can’t come to this beautiful part of Turkey without exploring the many Lycian sights in the area too, such as Xanthos, Patara and Myra – all within easy reach from Kalkan. For nature lovers, there are also plenty of fantastic walking, biking and hiking routes in the foothills of the mountains.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Children are the beloved centrepiece of family life in Turkey, and you and your children will be welcomed wherever you go. The villa itself has a private swimming pool, shaded grassy spots for children to play and a television for those family entertainment evenings indoors.

Kalkan town is a short walk away with any amenities you may need, a beach and family-friendly restaurants. Another beach Kaputas is a short drive with calm and crystal-clear waters for swimming. The beach also has a beach club with water sports facilities, a decking area and restaurant.

This part of Turkey is known for it is natural beauty and there are plenty of walking and hiking routes in the area. You could visit the nearby towns of Kas and Fethiye to explore the ancient architecture or jump on a boat from Kas to the island of Kekova where there are 2nd-cenury half-sunken ruins.
