What Oliver loves…
- The villa is sea facing with breath-taking views of the Turquoise Coast. It’s in a peaceful and quiet spot, yet you’re within walking distance of Kalamar town with plenty of shops, restaurants and cultural sites.
- With a barbeque, sauna, steam room, gym and private swimming pool – the facilities at Villa Yunus are second to none.
Perched in the hillside and overlooking the sea, five-bedroom Villa Yunus boasts unrivalled views of Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. It’s in the sleepy village of Kalamar in Kalkan, and has the towering Taurus Mountains as a backdrop. When you’re not relaxing around this villa’s large private pool – there are plenty of chairs and loungers to choose from – head to the white-sand beach near the marina for swimming or sunbathing, or Kaputas, a small sandy cove, that’s just 7km east of Kalkan.
The villa adds an Instagram-worthy exterior and interior to its resume, too. Think contemporary, yet comfortable furnishings. There’s an open-plan living room – equipped with a large kick-back-on corner sofa – and a modern American-style kitchen. Large glass windows and doors flood the space with light, and truly showcase those coastal vistas. It’s spacious enough for the whole family to relax together, and with the addition of both an indoor and outdoor dining table, meal times are a real treat here. You can pick up your fresh local produce from the shops, just a short walk away.
Thanks to its cinema room – perfect for kids young and old – and sauna, steam room and Hamman, Villa Yunus really packs in the benefits, too. There’s a gym here too so you can keep up with your fitness regime while you’re away. The rooms are spread across the four spacious floors. For those wanting a bit of extra privacy, or with limited mobility, there’s a double bedroom with bathroom and kitchenette on the ground floor. On the first floor, you’ll find two double bedrooms – one with a spa-inspired Jacuzzi bathtub – as well as a twin bedroom. Last but certainly not least there’s another double bedroom on the terraced floor – also equipped with a bathroom and Jacuzzi bathtub.

Villa Yunus is set in a peaceful spot overlooking Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. It’s in the sleepy village of Kalamar, and has the majestic pine tree-lined Taurus Mountains as backdrop. The quiet area benefits from a white-sand beach, and is the ideal place to swim or simply relax.
A short walk from the villa takes you into Kalamar Town with plen ty of local shops, cafes and restaurants. You could also drive 7km to nearby Kalkan Town, where there’s a charming harbour dotted with Turkish wooden gulets – traditional boats – as well as 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 take a boat trip 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.
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 sites including the ghost village of Kayakoy near Fethiye, with abandoned Greek buildings. For even more sites and things to do, the bohemian town of Kas is a 30-40 minute drive, while the resort town of Fethiye is a one-hour drive away.
Restaurants & Shops
Kalkan Public 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, cinema room and plenty of space, Villa Yunus is the ideal villa for families with children. The nearest beach / beach club with calm waters – perfect for younger swimmers – alongside water sports opportunities is only a short (downhill) walk away.
The centre of Kalkan is also within walking distance where 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 or sea kayak over half submerged ruins at the small island of Kekova.
For cultural trips, adults and kids alike can enjoy the more bohemian town of Kas, a 30-40 minute drive away from Kalkan. There you’ll find the ancient ruins of Antiphellos scattered around the town and 500 metres along from the harbour is a small well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre, many other Lycian sites are within a short drive including Patara, Xanthos and Tlos. Saklikent's famous Gorge provides another attraction with it's colling waters, popula for tubing and canoeing.
