What Oliver loves…
- You can dine al fresco on the shaded terrace with stunning views of the bay.
- Kalkan town is only a short walk away, with local shops, bars and restaurants, and there are plenty of taxis for the journey home.
If you’re looking for an idyllic group or family-friendly stay in Turkey, spacious five-bedroomed Villa Selale is an ideal choice. Set in an enviable spot on the hillside in Kalkan – an old fishing village, turned lively seaside resort – the luxurious villa is just a short stroll from the centre of town and the shoreline and boasts stunning views of the sea, bay and surrounding tree-lined mountains.
The building fuses modern and Mediterranean style with whitewashed walls, natural-coloured furnishings and rustic stone features. The villa is set in private grounds, dotted with native plants and trees and features an inviting outdoor space with a large private pool. For an extra dose of luxury there’s a salt water feature, as well as a shallower children's section in the pool and a separate jet Jacuzzi tub on the terrace. Take a cooling dip after a day of exploring Kalkan’s winding streets and historic sites – or simply put up your feet and relax. There’s a cushioned day bed surrounded by romantic voile curtains, sun loungers and a chic swinging hammock and for that too.
Inside the villa, you’ll find a bright and inviting open-plan kitchen and living room, equipped with modern amenities, including a fridge, oven and washing machine. There’s also sofas and an indoor dining table for those chilled evenings in. The villa sleeps up to ten across its five stylish bedrooms: three double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms – all decorated elegant with simple and classic interiors. The ground floor room has direct access to the swimming pool, while three of the rooms have a private balcony and the master has a private terrace and Jacuzzi tub in its bathroom. With a total of five bathrooms across the villa too, you don’t need to worry about queuing for the shower.
For more action, the villa’s handily positioned just a short walk from the centre of Kalkan, so you’re never far from local restaurants and bars. With shops and supermarkets nearby too, you’re perfectly positioned for a relaxing stay-in holiday or for exploring more of this charming part of Turkey.
What you should know…
- There other villas nearby, but the building is detached and is surrounded by trees.
- It’s on a slight incline so it’s easier getting to the town than it is getting back.

illa Selale is built into the hillside in Kalamar on Turkey’s turquoise coast. Perfect for relaxing or exploring, it’s in a quiet spot, yet is only a short walk from the centre of Kalkan town. There you’ll find a beautiful boat-lined harbour, sandy beaches and colourful markets selling everything from hand-crafted traditional Turkish rugs (kilims) to fresh produce, jewellery and leather goods.
Kalkan sits on a curving bay and has plenty of waterfront cafes and restaurants serving both traditional and international cuisine. Spend afternoons exploring the narrow streets and then stop for a cold coffee or tasty lunch that go hand-in-hand with magnificent views of the coastline. To experience Kalkan from another perspective, you can jump on a traditional wooden gullet from the harbour and take a trip around the pristine bays, stopping off for swimming, snorkelling and lunch.
Kalkan is also renowned for its sandy beaches and there are more options for swimming and snorkelling. Kaputas Beach with crystal-clear waters and Patara Beach, a long stretch of shoreline that’s also a National Park are both excellent choices. With day beach clubs at both, you can relax on the sand, take part in water sports like kayaking and parasailing or relax on the shoreline.
For trips further afield, Kekova island with its part-sunken ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the 2nd century is a must do. Boats usually leave from cosmopolitan Kas, about a 30-minute drive from Kalkan. Kas also has the ancient site of Antiphellos, with still-visible ruins including a theatre which are sure to impress.
Islamlar (trout restaurants)
Restaurants & Shops
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 family-friendly beaches, all within a short drive of the villa, as well as Kalkan town centre with shops, restaurants and amenities, Villa Selale is an ideal choice for families with children.
Most of the beaches in Kalkan have day beach clubs, offering opportunities to take part in water sports like jet skiing, sea kayaking and scuba diving, as well as restaurant facilities so you won’t be stuck if the children get hungry or thirsty. There are also beautiful walking routes in the area.
For fun family-friendly day trips, there are boat trips that leave Kalkan harbour to explore the bays and coves. You could also drive to the resort Kas where there are ancient ruins scattered around the town and a small well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre. Boat trips to Kekova, a beautiful island with ancient half-submerged ruins also leave from Kas.
