Villa Seyhan combines the best of both worlds with a holiday in a traditional style Turkish stone cottage with all of the modern amenities. This three-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-storey villa can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Situated above the exclusive holiday destination of Kalkan, the villa benefits from stunning panoramic sea views over the old town and working harbour. Villa Seyhan is built with natural local stone, and is decorated sympathetically throughout with cool terracotta and highlights of indigo to reflect and compliment the colours of the Turquoise Coast. This beautiful detached villa is set in its own grounds surrounded by green trees and old olive groves, and benefits from complimentary air-conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout.
Enter the villa on the ground floor, where you will find a large open plan living space. The seating area has a classic three-seater sofa and two comfortable armchairs, coffee and side tables, and a flat-screen television with English speaking news channels. An adjacent dining area has a designer table and chairs where you can entertain up to six guests. The well-equipped kitchen has a hob, fridge-freezer and dishwasher, and a machine to make your must-have morning coffee. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with a king size bed, and an ensuite marble shower room. Just off this bedroom through floor to ceiling sliding glass doors is a heated plunge pool, perfect for an early morning dip. The second bedroom can also be found on the ground floor, a twin room with two single beds, traditionally decorated in natural wood and sea blues, with an ensuite marble shower room, and access to the pool terrace. There is also a very convenient utility room with a washing machine and guest WC. Take the stairs to the master bedroom, which is located on the first floor of the house, furnished with a king-size bed, an in-room jacuzzi bath, and a frosted glass shower room, as well as a furnished balcony with magnificent sea views.
The marble-paved terrace is home to an extra-long 3.5m x 12.5m infinity swimming pool with a shallow end, and easy entry Roman steps. The pool is surrounded by six cushioned sun loungers, with parasols for shade, and a comfortable seating area to take morning coffee or sip cocktails and watch the glorious sunsets. Make sure you go to the Thursday market, then cook up a feast of fresh local food on the terrace barbeque, where you can eat alfresco under the stars at the six-seater pergola-covered dining table

Villa Seyhan is nestled in the hills and olive groves overlooking the harbour town of Kalkan, with panoramic views over the aptly named Turquoise Coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The town of Kalkan is 125 kilometres from Dalaman Airport, a scenic one and a half hour journey through the Turkish countryside and Taurus mountains.
Originally a Greek enclave called Kalamaki, Ottoman and Hellenic influences can be found in the winding streets of the old town, full of traditional white houses and home to a plethora of restaurants, cafes and bars, and souvenir shops full of goodies you’ll want to take home.
No stay in Kalkan is complete without a boat trip from the harbour, whether it’s a shared one with family and friends or you charter your own gulet, a day out at sea with your favourite captain and crew, is one to treasure. All aboard for a day of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays, enjoy a meal of local homecooked meze, take afternoon tea, and then sail back to harbour cocktail in hand to watch the sunset.
For the beach bunnies, Kalkan has its own pebble beach with easy access into the sea. Travel further afield to the stunning Kaputas Beach set in a natural gorge, or take a trip to Patara, where you will find twenty kilometres of unspoilt golden sands and a protected area for the hatching turtles. Kalkan is home to a number of beach clubs along the length of its coastline, have some fun in the sun at family-friendly resorts offering water sports and swimming pools, or relax and unwind at exclusive luxury destinations and be waited on hand and foot whilst enjoying alfresco spa treatments.
For those with itchy feet, the Lycian Way walking trail cuts through Kalkan. Follow in the footsteps of thousands of years of history as you trek the trail taking you through major archaeological sites, local villages, dramatic coastlines, and the areas’ flora and fauna. Take a short journey to the town of Kinik, where you can step back in time to the Lycian city of Xanthos. Follow the D400 to Fethiye, and discover the historical sites of Patara, Letoon, Tlos, and Pinara, where you can see the ancient ruins, amphitheatres and temples with Lycian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine influences.
The harbour town of Fethiye is also full of ancient sites worth seeing, as well as a foodie-heaven fish market, and home to some seriously good designer labels and fabulous jewellery shopping. Whilst the nearer town of Kas is just twenty-five kilometres away, and worth the journey alone along with one of the world’s most stunning and dramatic coastlines. Walk through the harbour to the cobbled streets full of Ottoman architecture and overhanging balconies festooned with pastel coloured bougainvillaea, barter for unique handmade and antique goods in its many shops, and make memories dining in one of the traditional restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine with mesmerising sea views. And if you’re feeling intercontinental hop on the twenty-minute ferry from Kas to the Greek island of Meis, where you can explore the Blue Cave and dine by the water’s edge.

Indigo Beach Club
Patara Beach and Ancient City
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.
Kalkan is the perfect holiday hot spot for kids of all ages. Starting with the villa’s private infinity pool with a shallow end, and heated indoor plunge pool, and as there’s no set hours, your children can swim and splash all day.
Take a short drive down to the harbour and hop aboard a dedicated sea taxi to one of the many beach clubs. Start with the family-friendly JoJo’s with its sandy beach and water sports, or Zest’s stunning setting with huge infinity and kid’s swimming pools, to the sophisticated Villa Mahal with bathing and diving platforms and the laid-back cool Palm Beach. In the pretty town of Kalkan you will find an original authentic Turkish village full of winding streets of white-washed houses, child-friendly restaurants and cafes, and shops galore selling souvenirs. For your little daredevils, Aristos Water Sports will take them on exhilarating sea rides, tandem parasailing, jet skis, and racing speed boats. For the not so adventurous, Kalkan has its own public pebble beach, with sunbeds and brollies and safe entry into the calm sea.
A trip to Kalkan isn’t complete without a lazy day at sea on one of the traditional gulets that leave the harbour daily, with stopovers at beautiful bays, mud bath inlets, super swimming and snorkelling in the warm waters of the Turquoise Coast, not to mention the magnificent meze lunch with freshly caught fish, then sail home and turtle spot as the sunsets. Whilst you are in town book a day trip for all the family. Enjoy a jeep safari through the local villages, see the natural flora and fauna, and ride the famous Patara sand dunes. Go further afield to Sakilkent Gorge, where you can walk through a flowing river to a magnificent waterfall. Take a trip to Kekova and see a sunken city through a glass-bottomed boat.
On the way to Fethiye stop off at the ghost town of Kaya, where you can explore the ruins of an abandoned Greek town with original houses, churches and chapels. The town of Olu Deniz offers the best of both worlds, with stunning sandy beaches with easy entry shallow waters, and a magnificent one thousand seven hundred metre cable car ride up to the top of Mount Babadag, from where you can tandem paraglide and land back where you started. A short boat taxi journey from Olu Deniz will take you to Butterfly Valley, where your children can discover over eighty species of beautiful butterflies in nature’s garden.
