It’s all about the view when you stay at Villa Caria, situated just outside of the town of Kas, overlooking the dramatic coastline of the stunning Mediterranean Turquoise Coast, Turkey. This ultra-modern three bedroom, three bathroom villa can comfortably sleep up to six guests. This two storey detached villa is the latest in contemporary design with stark whitewashed walls, full length glass windows, and metal surrounds, nestled in the hillside with sea views from every room. The villa is decorated in a neutral palette with cool accent colours, including gun metal grey and iron blues on the ground floor, and bright jewel highlights in the bedrooms. It’s the perfect holiday home for a family or friends’ sharing, and enjoying time in the Turkish sunshine.

Enter the villa at ground floor level to reveal an open plan living space. The adjacent dining area has a modern dark grey table and six metal chairs, great for some indoor entertaining. There is a small, practical L-shaped white kitchen, equipped with everything you will need for your stay, including a family-sized fridge-freezer and a traditional Turkish coffee maker. On the ground floor there is a large bedroom with two twin beds, and floor to ceiling windows that give access to the pool terrace and superb sea views. Take the stairs to the first floor where you will find two spacious double bedrooms. The first has a sapphire blue velvet in-set surround bed, wardrobes, dressing table and mirror, an in-room Jacuzzi bath, an en-suite marble shower room, and floor to ceiling windows that offer spectacular sea views, and open to a balcony, where you can enjoy a morning coffee and watch the sunrise. The second bedroom has a large ruby red round in-set bed, in-room Jacuzzi bath with a view, an en-suite marble shower room, and a balcony with beautiful sea views, where you can sit sipping cocktails as the sun sets.

Access the pool terrace from the ground floor living area, where there is an impressive swimming pool, perfect for a few lengths before breakfast. The pool is surrounded by six mesh sun loungers, shady parasols, and a swing chair in which to while the day away. Relax on the cushioned soft seating area, or catch up on some holiday reading on the matching bench. Shop for local homegrown produce in the weekly market, and eat alfresco in the pergola dining area with table and six chairs.

Villa Caria is in the most stunning location, built into the foothills of the Taurus mountains, above the coast road between the towns of Kalkan and Kas, with panoramic sea views of the aptly named Turquoise Coast, the jewel of the Mediterranean Sea. The villa is 155 kilometres from Dalaman International Airport, a scenic mountain and coast road journey that takes approximately two hours by car.

The nearest town is quaint Kas is just over three kilometres away, with its Ottoman houses hanging with pastel coloured bougainvillea, winding streets, busy working harbour, and lots of inviting restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as a lively music scene in the evening. The town draws an international crowd, and has some seriously good shopping, whether its for hand crafted souvenirs, fabulous holiday fashion, delicious foods from organic grocers and delis, and the must-see Friday market. The nearest beach from the villa is just three kilometres away, on the way into Kas there is an impressive marina, which is home to luxury yachts cruising the Med. Around the Kas coastline there are lots of exclusive beach clubs, where you can enjoy a day sunbathing on wooden platforms, diving into the sea from jetties, swimming and snorkelling, and sampling the local fare in their cafes and restaurants. 

No stay in Kas is complete with a boat trip from the harbour, all aboard for a day at sea, snorkelling and swimming, discovery secret coves and beautiful bays, not to mention the homemade mixed meze lunch and fresh fish served for lunch. If you want to go further afield ask the captain to take you to Kekova, where you can view a sunken city through a glass bottomed boat, climb ancient Roman ruins, and try the famous homemade ice cream as an afternoon treat. For those interested in history Kas is fully of surprises, just a walk around town will uncover amphitheatres, tombs, and archaeological sites from Lycian, Greek, Byzantine and Roman times. A boat trip to Aperlai allows you to swim above age old ruins, and get off the boat to wander through Roman remains. The coast road to Kalkan is well worth a trip, with breath taking views of the stunning and dramatic coastline that dates back to the time of Homer. On the way stop at Kaputas beach, formed from a natural gorge, there’s only two hundred steps down to a beautiful beach with sunbeds and parasols, cafes and loos, and the most welcoming warm sea in which to swim. If nature is your thing the area around Kas has it all, follow the famous Lycian Way, trek the trail to discover the areas natural flora and fauna. And if you’ve really got itchy feet and a desire to travel, you can always get to Greece from Kas harbour by taking the daily twenty minute ferry to Meis.

Kas

Kas have 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

Kas is the perfect holiday hot spot for kids of all ages, with lots of places to see and activities to do within a small radius. Starting with the villa’s private pool, as there’s no set hours, your children can swim and splash all day. A short drive away there are lots of family-friendly beach clubs, with shallow entry warm sea, bathing platforms, and lots of water sports to keep them amused all day. A trip to Kas isn’t complete without a lazy day at sea on one of the traditional day boats that leave the harbour every morning. Stopover at beautiful bays and islands, swim and snorkel in the warm waters of the Turquoise Coast, enjoy a magnificent meze lunch with freshly caught fish, then sail home and turtle spot as the sun sets.

Take a trip to Kekova from Kas harbour and see a sunken city through a glass-bottomed boat. 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. Drive or take the local dolmus to Kalkan, follow the D400 coastline until you reach Kaputas, and walk down two hundred steps to discover a beautiful beach in a natural gorge, with family changing facilities and a handy cafe. Continue onto the pretty village of Kalkan, originally a Greek harbour town, now a fashionable holiday destination. Work your way down its winding streets, shop for handmade souvenirs, before reaching the harbour, where you can enjoy traditional Turkish food in a family-friendly restaurants. Go further afield to Sakilkent Gorge, where you can walk through a flowing river to a magnificent waterfall.

On the way to the town of Fethiye, stop off at the ghost village of Kaya, and explore the ruins of an abandoned Greek settlement with original houses, churches and chapels. You and your children will love a day out in Olu Deniz, 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.
