The views are extraordinary and yet the walk to town is a comfortable 15 minute stroll and there you find a staggering range of high quality restaurants serving a mixture of turkish and western European cuisine to a very high standard. This is truly a sophisticated and 'grown-up' resort sometimes referred to as the San Tropez of Turkey. Akkaya's location really gets the most out of the resorts facilities

Location description from owner

The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region

The Lycian Coast.
The Turquoise Coast' – stretching from Fethiye to Antalya, dominated by the Taurus mountains, – famed for its beauty - bays and beaches, islands, archaeological sites and funeral monuments (Lycian tombs) in abundance, carved into the cliff face or perched on rocky crags. Walk the Lycian Way (a waymarked long-distance footpath); cruise along the coast in a gulet; or drive along and enjoy its scenery and visit the sites
Xanthos
A hill top city, former capital of Lycia: an extensive site surrounding a well preserved Roman theatre, the 'Harpy Tomb', a Byzantine Basilica with floor mosaics, and many tombs dotted around the hillside.

The Letoon
Low lying, originally the area's religious centre and oracle, with temples, nympheum, church and theatre.

Patara - Best known for its 18 kilometre long, white sand beach which is a turtle breeding ground, Patara was the original port for Xanthos, and is now an archaeological site at its eastern end,
with some parts standing proud and
others peeking out of the sand dunes,
still being excavated each year.

Pinara
A more remote site, a vast acropolis and wall tombs, and wonderful views over the valley. Nearby is Tlos, the most ancient of Lycian cities with its necropolis and the Tomb of Bellerophon.

Saklikent gorge – a dramatic gorge inland from Xanthos. Walk past trout restaurants on stilts at the base of the cliffs, then take the 150 metre walkway through the mouth of the gorge to the gushing springs, coming right out of solid rock. From there, wade up the river bed – initially waist deep but soon up to only the ankles or thighs – for a good part of the chasm. The more intrepid can clamber over fallen boulders and walk on to reach the waterfalls – absolutely worth the effort!

Olu Deniz – probably the most photographed spot in Turkey, a breathtaking azure lagoon with long sand spit and acres of beach. Water sports are available, including paragliding from the cliff-tops. Just 10 km from the old town and harbour of Fethiye, well worth a visit in its own right, for the old quarter, the harbour, and the coastline beyond.

Gocek – in a corner of the Gulf of Fethiye, now a major centre to pick up a gulet trip, for a few days, down the indented coastline.

Kas is 'a must' to visit – if only for the stunning drive round the coast at sea level - just forty minutes from Kalkan by car, taxi or dolmus. Old cobbled streets with over-hanging balconies and lots of lovely shops to browse, a bustling yacht harbour, its own small Roman theatre and well-photographed Lycian sarcophagus. At the nearby Limangazi beach, full water sports, a diving centre and paragliding from the clifftops. Also, daily boat trips to the sunken city of Kekova , and to the Greek island of Kastellorizo (Meis in Turkish).

Drive inland to the trout farms of Islamlar for lunch, and the plain of Bezirgan. Driving slowly round the twisty lanes will take you back to a farming style almost of Thomas Hardy times, or you can organise horse-riding treks around the area.

Beaches – Kalkan itself has a pebble beach close to the town centre, used by locals and visitors alike, while nearby Patara and Kaputas are close enough for even a half-day outing. Patara is famed for its fine white sand stretching for eighteen kilometres, and sun shades can be hired at the near end of the beach. It closes at sunset and is home to nesting turtles in season: about 20 minutes drive from Kalkan, with a regular dolmus service. The beach at the base of Kaputas gorge is closer, and is a favourite – but there are about 150 steps to take you down (and up again) from the road. Or you can visit it by sea ferry from Kalkan harbour


Kalkan

Kalkan is a small, peaceful Mediterranean resort on the beautiful Turquoise Coast of Turkey. More sophisticated than many resorts, Kalkan has been little touched by mass tourism, and is special: All everyone who haves visited it says so, and many return time and time again. There are many British ex-pats living in Kalkan – those who came as tourists and loved it so much they made it their permanent home.

The town overlooks a beautiful bay, and the sea shimmers. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, and are lined with whitewashed villas with shuttered windows, alongside small local speciality shops and restaurants.

Unlike other Turkish coastal resort towns, Kalkan's main economy is tourism and therefore its people put much pride and effort into looking after the visitor. The people of Kalkan happily welcome you, and you may at first be surprised by the universal friendliness within the town. We have found it absolutely genuine.

Good dining has always been the way of life in Kalkan and it is said to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per square metre on the Turkish coast. Its numerous roof-top terrace restaurants and bars offer a wonderful view of the town, the sea and the stars. Kalkan is a small town of only a few thousand, and this creates a wonderful intimate feeling. You will not be hassled while you shop in Kalkan, and with the shops, bars and cafes staying open at least until midnight, you have every opportunity to enjoy the town.

“Just perfect!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

Well what can i say? We stayed at the Villa in May for a week and to be honest did not have high expectations of Turkey. We'd stayed in Antalya previously and it was over commercialised. Waking up to this spectacular bay view, delightful pool, in the wonderful house with high ceilings and views to die for, was simply perfect. The landlord couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations for restaurants, hire car, directions and general advice. The location is on the side of a hill, roads are a bit bumpy, but perfectly located for visiting the superb restaurants around Kalkan in the evening. Taxis are also abundant if you don't want to drive. The restaurant and bar scene in Kalkan is uber cool - not what we expected - and we hired a yacht one day for £200 for 6 of us including all our freshly cooked food and drinks. Amazing! This place is very special and we won't hesitate in going there again next year. Just lovely!!

“Absolutely beautiful.”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

The villa is outstanding. Well furnished inside and out with nice touches everywhere. The kitchen has every appliance you need and everywhere is clean and tidy. Tv and DVD player in the lounge , wifi and air conditioning, basically there is nothing I can think of that wasn't supplied. Outside the pool was spotless and a man came everyday to maintain it and would sort a problem if there was one. Plenty of sun beds , chairs and a lovely shaded area to sit and dine in the cool. The views from the villa are amazing and uninterrupted , looking across the sea to the pretty town of Kalkan. We certainly hope to return next year .
