Photos and Description of this İslamlar holiday cottage

Cottage & Villa in Islamlar, Kalkan, Turkey - Stress Free And Peaceful Location

Nestled away in a small village oasis, these properties epitomize the warmth and charm associated with the area. Set in the hills of pretty Islamlar offering incredible views of Kalkan Bay, the Ottoman styled house and charming villa will be a sensual treat of Turkish rugs, and traditional ornaments creating a romantic haven - just for two, or a relaxing getaway for small families. The hidden and unpretentious allure of Islamlar Village (5 min walking) also beckons – from trout restaurants and boisterous tea houses full of friendly locals to the dramatic walking trails along the Lycian Way. Sophisticated Kalkan (15 min) with its array of exotic restaurants and shops can be reached easily by car, so too the superb beaches of Kaputas (25 min) and Patara (25 min).

About David

Hello my name is David, and I am the owner of the listing you are viewing. First off, thank you for your consideration and I truly hope you will enjoy your time in Islamlar whether by yourself or with a loved one. If you have any recommendations to make the experience better for others or yourselves then by all means please let me know and I will do whatever I can to make it happen.

Why David chose Lycian and Turquoise Coast

I recently left the military after 14 years and took a job in the Middle East. Living there has its pros & cons, but ultimately me and my wife needed a place outside of the country where we could relax and spend quality time together. After much searching into various other countries, we came across this cottage, and after the third visit decided to purchase it. There's few properties such as this one that offer a mountain point vantage overlooking the Mediterranean set within a traditional Ottoman village. This advantage as well as the culture, and friendliness of the local people were the deciding factors for us.

What makes this cottage unique

The main benefit that I get out of staying here is that I feel recharged when it is all over. There's no stress, everyone is kind, the food is as organic as it gets since it is all made centrally in the village, and the only sounds you hear at night is water cascading down the mountain sides. This village is genuine, and peaceful. If one wanted to enjoy something a little more upbeat though then Kalkan is a 15 minute ride down the hill.

Fantastic, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed for a week in August and really enjoyed our stay. It has such great views, a nice pool, and a small garden with seating area for meals.

The cottage itself is a wood cabin seemingly modeled off of traditional Ottoman design and has a rustic appearance which we really enjoyed.

Overall, I've given it five stars for being a great vacation property along with an attentive owner that took care of our every request.
