Turkey, conjures up a magical and exciting villa holiday destination and it is where continents meet and civilisations jostle and the exotic cultures of the east truly embrace the sophistication of the west. There are numerous villages and towns to explore and we have chosen the town of Kalkan which has grown over the years from a small fishing village to an exciting holiday destination which has still kept its charm and character.

Located less than a two hour drive from Dalaman Airport will find the old town and harbourside which has retained its “small town feel” due to the building restrictions introduced before the tourist boom in Turkey. There is a pebble beach by the harbour or explore one of the “beach clubs” which have swimming platforms carved into the rocks with an array of water sports to choose from; or just relax and soak up the rays!

Patara beach is a short drive away and offers 8 miles of a wonderful, sandy beach or the azure coloured waters of Kaputas. The town features a host of tavernas, restaurants, cafes, bars and a cuisine with an excellent selection of Turkish and European mix. Explore the Thursday local farmers market with fresh produce and meats (for that evening BBQ) or simply relax by your own private pool.
