Villas in Kalkan, Turkey
Kalkan, once a small Greek fishing village known as Kalamaki, is now one of the most sophisticated and picturesque seaside resorts in Turkey, making it the perfect destination for villa holidays. It offers a wide variety of cosmopolitan restaurants, shops and bars scattered along the pretty harbour front and around the atmospheric cobbled back streets of this beautiful old town. It comes as no surprise that villas in Kalkan have become a popular base for the discerning traveler over the years – yet despite this, it has managed to retain its unique character and charm and is now a relaxed, yet sophisticated choice for a truly indulgent villa holiday.
Despite being the up-market resort that Kalkan has become, you can still drive up into the mountains to Islamlar in no more than 15 minutes from one of our villas in Kalkan. Here, you’ll be transported back in time to a way of life that hasn’t changed for centuries – Islamlar has a rambling collection of interesting and unique old houses and is renowned for its orchards and trout farms. But wherever you choose to explore, you can be sure a villa in Kalkan will give you access to Turkish hospitality in abundance.
Villas in Kalkan - Islamlar
In the Taurus Mountains above Kalkan is the traditional and ancient hamlet of Islamlar. To stay in one of our Islamlar villas is to experience an authentic and timeless taste of traditional Turkey.
You will find distinctive architecture, charming people and a simple way of life, all within easy walking distance of our Islamlar villas. There is still an old tea house, a bakery where the flour is stone milled and shepherds tending their sheep between the shady olive trees.
The area is renowned for its trout farms and, not surprisingly, fine fish restaurants are to be found in the vicinity of our private villas in Islamlar. This remote location is the perfect place for keen walkers who will appreciate the landscape and breath-taking views over the Kalkan bay and Patara, where you will find the stunning sands and ancient ruins of Patara beach.
