Villa Peshtemal is a bright and modern four-bedroom villa situated in the lovely Kiziltas area of Kalkan, at the top of the Kalkan Bay. Kiziltas is set in the foothills of the majestic Taurus Mountains and surrounded by idyllic countryside. Kiziltas is more secluded than the Kalkan Old Town, yet it is only a few minutes away by taxi or a 20-minute walk away.

Kalkan has an exquisite harbour, full of Turkish gulets and small fishing craft, bordered with waterfront restaurants and the beach. It is a thriving but still unspoilt resort with the bustling historic Old Town being the heart of the town. After dusk, its narrow, cobbled streets, full of ancient houses, delicious restaurants, trendy boutiques and local craft shops with overhanging flower-filled balconies teem with visitors. The tantalising aromas of Kalkan’s renowned cuisine entice people down to the harbour and the surrounding streets.

Villa Peshtemal is very comfortable with squishy sofas and beds. It is so bright and cheerful. Full-length doors and windows illuminate the rooms and make you feel so happy to be on holiday. The living, dining and kitchen area is open-plan and open to the fabulous terrace. There are partial sea views from the living room and excellent sea views from the pool and terrace. The outside area is so welcoming with covered alfresco dining and plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas around the lovely pool. There is a gas barbecue to prepare some wonderful summer dinners.

The kitchen is newly renovated and has everything you would desire for a self-catering holiday. Also downstairs is a fabulously comfortable double bedroom with pool views and a separate shower and toilet. As you reach the first-floor landing, you will find another relaxation area with sofas. It is a great place if you want to read or listen to music. The large twin bedroom has a pristine, modern ensuite shower room and opens to a spacious balcony with fantastic views of Kalkan and the azure blue Mediterranean sea. It is even more spectacular at dusk! The master double bedroom also has a dazzling ensuite bathroom and a private balcony with gorgeous views. The final bedroom is on the top floor with another bathroom. There is a door leading to the wonderful rooftop terrace. The higher you go, the views get even better! It is a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the sunsets with a glass of wine.

Kalkan is set on a breathtaking, grand sweeping Mediterranean bay with the magnificent Taurus Mountains as a backdrop. Kalkan is a trendy, family-friendly destination with over 350 restaurants, many with roof terraces, an eclectic mix of Greek and old Kalkan architecture, chic bars, cosy cafes and atmospheric boutiques selling beautiful clothes, jewellery, textiles, football kits and ‘designer’ handbags. It is so lovely to meander around the narrow lanes full of whitewashed houses and stunning rays of colour from the bougainvillaea filled courtyards. The Greek Orthodox Church by Kalkan’s harbour has been converted into a mosque and is the best example of Greek architecture in Kalkan. From the harbour, many of the upscale beach clubs dotted around the bay can be accessed by colourful boats that transfer guests. The fabulous traditional gulets offer boat trips to the beaches, islands and inlets. You can also take fishing and diving trips.

The quality of cuisine in Kalkan is exceptionally high. You will find slick and modern restaurants as well as traditional ones. If you have not experienced real Turkish cooking, then you are in for a treat. Many of the restaurants have spectacular roof terraces with incredible views over the bay, which adds to the warm and welcoming ambience. If you want a change from the restaurants of Kalkan, you can go higher into the mountains for the freshest fish ever at the charming village of Islamlar. Springs diverted from the mountains into the village of Islamlar have led to a thriving trout farming industry. The views from the restaurant terraces are breathtaking, and the fish so delicious.

The upmarket beach clubs scattered around the coast are perfect for lazy days. You can order cocktails, lunch by your lounger and take frequent dips in the dazzling sea. If you want a sandy beach, you can head to the fabulous Patara beach 20 minutes away. It never feels busy.

Adventure seekers can kayak along the Xanthos River or visit the splendid Saklikent Gorge. The 18km long and 300m deep gorge was opened as a national park in 1996. You will wade through the chilled water, climb, swim and slide your way through. The fresh mountain water is often up to waist height. There is also an option for river-rafting and dining by the waterside on a delicious fresh fish meal at the end of your adventure.

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
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Peshtemal is perfect for a family holiday. Kiziltas is a lovely, peaceful area of Kalkan.

If you are looking for alternatives to the pebbly shoreline in Kalkan, Kaputas is a lovely cove 10 minutes drive away, or the spectacular Patara Beach is around 20 minutes drive from the villa. The 20km stretch of silver sand is unspoiled with the Patara ruins at one end. You cannot go onto the beach too early or late as loggerhead turtles nest in the sands.
Children will love the boat trips available from Kalkan. You can also visit the sunken city of Kekova, snorkel and swim, spot turtles, enjoy the traditional old gulets and try other watersports. 
Saklikent Gorge is such a fun day out. Children will love clambering over rocks, through tunnels, sliding and swimming. It’s an Indiana-Jones style, splish-splosh trek through the watery canyon. The white-water raft rides there add to the adventure.
Children will enjoy kayaking trips along the Xanthos River to Patara Beach. Even better fun is the mud bath on the way. You can stop off and get as covered in as much mud as possible. It is supposed to be therapeutic, but children don’t really care about the therapeutic qualities, they like to get covered and to throw a little bit your way!
For a change from the beach, you can take a trip into the Taurus Mountains. It is cool, and you will pass through forests with enormous trees along the Kibris Canyon. You can enjoy a relaxed lunch in Gombe Town Square.

  • Lots of room

    on 31/07/2018

    Villa Peshtemal is in a very peaceful location not too far from town, we’ve had bad experiences before when bedrooms are very small but here they are huge! Lots of room both upstairs and downstairs. Pool area is well designed and you are very close to the kitchen for getting drinks etc. The local manager is on hand and can help out if you need anything, he was very helpful when we needed to know where to buy bread and he even offered to deliver us a freshly cooked loaf every morning when he came to clean the pool. If you are looking for a peaceful location in a roomy villa with nice views then you can’t go wrong.

  • We had a lovely time

    on 24/07/2018

    We stayed here in July 2018 with our teenagers, we had a lovely time. Villa was spotless and much bigger than it looks. The outside area has great views and we usually stayed at the villa during the day and walked down into the town at night for dinner, which took us around 15 minutes. The bedrooms are large as are the balconies and we enjoyed watching the sunset. The kitchen could do with an update and I’ve been informed that it will be renovated in the winter. Due to the space and quiet location we will be considering this again for 2019, it’s good value for money.
