About the property

Villa in Kalkan - Meltem has a heated pool. Beautiful peaceful setting, and a short 8 minute walk to the old town

Villa Meltem is your home away from home. The pool is heated. Located just 8 minutes walk into town, where you will find restaurants and bars galore to suit all tastes and budgets. The town has its own pebble beach with crystal clear water. There are many beach clubs situated in and around Kalkan - water sports are available from most beach clubs. Kalkan town is sophisticated and relaxed - there are so many restaurants to choose from with a wide range of foods available to suit all budgets. If you wish to go to alternative beaches Patara is just a 30 minute bus ride, or a 10 minute drive. Kaputas Bay is also close by and can be accessed by a 15 minute bus ride or a five minute car journey. Patara has toilet and shower facilities, Kaputas has a few umbrellas and basic toilet facilities - you can also hire beach beds and umbrellas . Boat trips from Kalkan harbour are highly recommended and you can either hire your own boat for the day or join one of the many day boats that leave to cruise around the nearby islands and coastline. There are many historical sites in the vicinity that are well worth a visit. Xanthos is a UNESCO world heritage site and Letoon and Patara also boast some fantastic ruins.

Patara is the birthplace of the original Santa Claus, St Nicholas. He became a bishop in the town of Demre which is about an hours drive from Kalkan.

You could consider incorporating a trip to Kekova which has a sunken city with a detour to Demre which as well as the church boasts some great catacombs and ruins.

There is paragliding available, jeep tours and safaris, and white water rafting in Saklikent .

Saklikent gorge is up to 1000ft deep in places and a guided tour through to the top of the gorge is great relief in the very hot summer. It is half an hours drive north of Kalkan and inland. The fees are very reasonable and discounts are available for students with their Student ID. Once inside you can get a guide who for a small fee for your group will take you and guide you up the gorge. Wear swimwear and get some diving shoes like you would wear on pebble beaches or for coasteering. You can hire or buy them at the gorge but we always think that your own are always best. They also come in handy when walking on hot sands instead of flip flops.

About Len

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.

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. Quiet location yet close to large choice of restaurants. Kalkan is a great holiday town and we were warmly welcomed by the friendly locals. Our first visit to Turkey but already planning our return to Villa Meltem.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a lovely review.We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and we will continue to keep the villa in tip top condition. You probably did not need the heating in the pool but it is great to have it in May and September when the night temperatures drop

Superb accommodation, great facilities and great location

  • 5 of 5

We were guests at the property for a week in August. Great to have a water machine and bottled water delivery. Internet telly worked a treat for the Olympics. The roof terrace was a super place for early evening drinks prior to wandering in to the old town to one of the hundreds of rooftop restaurants. After fantastic meals and more drinks we tended to opt for the £3 taxi to get us home. Just laziness in the heat.

Meltem is very well appointed and every comfort was taken care of. Too hot to take advantage of the table tennis table. Read loads of books, and just chilled out for the whole time. Wonderful place

Super family holiday in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many Villa's and Villa Meltem is definitely up there with the best. It is well appointed, all fixtures and fittings are of a high standard and the views of the Town and bay from the rooftop terrace and the many balconies are breathtaking. The walk to and from the town centre includes a number of steep hills but taxi's are numerous and very cheap if you are not feeling particularly energetic.

We were all very impressed by Kalkan, with its relaxed sophisticated atmosphere and numerous restaurants and cafe's it felt more like a Cote D'azure resort than Turkey.

Overall summary, superb villa in a great resort making a superb family holiday.

Owner's Response: Very pleased you loved the villa and Kalkan. The hills make the views. The mountains behind Kalkan are as high as anything in the UK and are only 5km from the sea. We agree it is a magical place to holiday

Beautifully appointed villa, fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property over 4 floors. Very nicely decorated and appointed with modern appliances. Bedrooms all have nice bathrooms and balconys. Beautiful views from both pool area and balcony.

15 minute walk into town, and to local bakery and shops. Definitely need local taxi service!

Nice large fridge/freezer on ground floor - but long way to take ice to top floor to watch sun set!

Owners really helpful as was Roger in Kalkan.

Definitely will return - only disappointment was TV reception (children and sport to escape heat).

Highly recommend

Thanks to Len and Geraldine for allowing us to share in their beautiful home x
