We are UK residents. I grew up in Cumbria, and my wife is from Birmingham. We honeymooned in Turkey nearly 30 years ago and fell in love with Kalkan when we first visited it back in 2011.
Len purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Len chose Kalkan
We maintain the villa to the highest standards and are constantly seeking to improve the villa and its contents. We own this villa as we think it has the right balance between brilliant sea views and also its accessibility to the Old Town. The roof terrace is a great place to wind down at the end of a day with a drink overlooking the bay. We are always looking at ways of improving the villa and each season all feedback is welcomed and any suggested improvements made.
What makes this Villa unique
Meltem is a large villa on a 750m2 plot with stepped gardens affording lots of privacy compared to many villas in Kalkan. It is an easy walk to the the Old Town and harbourside. The pool is heated so you can swim without shivering from April through to October. There is table tennis in the basement and the kitchen is fitted to a high standard boasting an induction hob rather than the traditional gas hobs with bottles often found here. The TV in the lounge has IPTV as well as a satellite system. This means the occupants can benefit from being able to watch virtually any channel braodcast in the UK along with many other european and Turkish channels. There are fantastic views from all bedrooms, all communal rooms and the outside pool area and dining terrace.

Five star plus experience
If only we could give this property more than five stars....
As two families, we have holidayed in Kalkan three times previously - but this was our first stay at Villa Meltem. It certainly won’t be our last.
We can not recommend this villa highly enough. The owners were so helpful prior to our holiday, answered questions and gave us transfer advice. We arrived late at night to a spotlessly clean house and a very welcome “welcome pack” - thank you!
The villa itself is spectacular. A wonderful luxurious mix of modern but with a Turkish feel. Modern, well equipped kitchen, quirky split level seating areas, a roof terrace to die for, a bath with a view (and great WiFi and table tennis for happy teenagers!) It really is very well equipped with everything you need and more.
The outside area is the best we have experienced in (many trips) to Turkey. Large space with plenty of comfortable seating , sunny all day, fabulous views and a wonderful large pool. A daily visit from the pool cleaner means it is immaculate.
If you’ve been to Kalkan before, you’d be hard pressed to get a better villa which isn’t too far from town, and still has the uninterrupted view. If you haven’t been to Kalkan before - GO! Such a hidden Turkish treasure and Villa Meltem is a great base to explore and relax. The information folder at the villa is invaluable and the management company can also offer advice, and were also great when we had any queries.
Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay at your wonderful villa. Such a special place.
Beautiful villa, beautiful Kalkan.
Villa Meltem is beautifully designed and equipped. Every room and space has been carefully considered and it shows. From the poolside to the roof terrace every area is a pleasure to be in. Our family of 5 had a fantastic week in Kalkan. Len was really helpful pre arrival with advice about transfers etc and the property manager was simple to get hold of, if needed, once in Turkey. We found from the villa into town was an easy 10-15 minute walk downhill and a cheap taxi ride back at the end of the evening. Kalkan itself is not too touristy and everyone seemed genuinely friendly. We can't wait to return!
Thank you for treating Meltem like your second home. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and took advantages of the space and ambience our villa offers. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Perfect- highly recommended.
Extremely well positioned and well appointed villa.
Beautifully maintained and spotless both inside and out. The cleaners and garden/ pool lady do an outstanding job.
All bedrooms are excellent so no one “ draws a short straw”.
Len responded promptly to any queries pre departure and the manager, Roger, was exceptional when dealing with one or two minor issues whilst we were in situ.
There is a sweet, gentle old dog who spends a lot of his day seeking shade around the property. Please look after him - we left food bowls and food,!!!
Thanks for the lovely review of Meltem. We try and keep it top drawer for our guests and for when we visit. We've been very pleased with the maintenance teams and how they look after our gardens, pool and home. Great to hear you got quick service for the minor issues. We always encourage our guests to shout up and the speed at which problems are solved still amazes us. Our management thought you were lovely guests and so you will always be welcomed at our property should you ever wish to return.
We did not think the old puppy would be around this year. We lost our own dog a couple of years ago and when we first saw this "big boy" we took out worming and flea treatments just in case he turned up!!
Beautiful villa, lovely pool and view. Kalkan is such a fabulous place - seeing a turtle in the harbour in Kalkan on the last day a real highlight

We can highly recommend this lovely villa. It is fabulous. Supetb views. Spacious accommodation inside and out with high quality fittings and furniture. Very clean, well maintained and comfortable.
