The villa is a short walk from Kalkan's centre; an old fishing town turned popular holiday destination on Turkey's Mediterranean coast.
It's famous for its colourful boat-lined harbour and picturesque white-washed houses, draped in pretty bougainvillaea flowers descending to the sea.
The majestic Taurus Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop and plenty of opportunities to go exploring.
If it's downtime you're after, Kalkan is blessed with some of the best restaurants, many on rooftops.
There's Blue Flag Kalkan Town Beach with calm crystal-clear waters that make it great for swimming and snorkelling, as well as Patara Beach, an 18km-long sandy stretch of shoreline which is also a natural park.
Look out for loggerhead turtles which nest there and birdlife.
Kalkan Beach is just a two-minute walk from Kalkan harbour, while Patara beach is around 20 minutes from Kalkan by car or the local Dolmus.
For a more sophisticated experience, Kalkan has many beach clubs, with food and drink service and steps into the sea.
History buffs can spend some time visiting some of the finest ruins in the region, such as the Lycian sites of Xanthos, Patara and Pinara.
At the same time, if you've got a taste for adventure you can enjoy a host of watersports, quad-biking, horse-riding at sunset or take boat trips along the coast.
A great boat trip will take you to the island of Kekova, with underwater ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient Lycian settlement. You could also visit serene Saklikent Gorge or wallow in a rejuvenating mud-bath at the nearby springs.

Kalkan has become boutique resorts, with cobbled streets and converted Greek houses, which belonged to the Greek merchants before the exchange of population in the 1920’s.
Once quiet fishing harbours these days you are more likely to see traditional wooden gulets taking tourists to soak up rays on the sparkling turquoise Mediterranean.
A boat trip is a must do, from the boat you can snorkel and usually a delicious lunch is prepared on board.
Keen walkers should check out the Lycian way for designated walking paths in the area.
You cannot come to this area without spending some time exploring the many Lycian sights, such as Xanthos, Patara, Myra or the sunken city of Kekova.
Patara is said to be where democracy started (they excavated stone voting block) and is also said to be the birthplace of St Nicholas, who became bishop at nearby Myra.
The ruins here include an ancient theatre, city walls, government build and agora.
The lighthouse on the site is said to be the earliest of its kind.
Visit Patara in the late afternoon and finish the trip with a drink on the sandy beach watching the amazing sunset.
The Salikent Gorge is a great place to visit, especially if you want to cool off in the fresh waters whilst walking up the gorge.
For the more energetic there are rafts and rings to ride the flowing waters.
Further down you can enjoy a day canoeing toward the beach.
Islamlar sits 8 km above Kalkan.
Once the place Kalkan folk went to cool off at one of the trout farms built to make use of the mountain’s springs.
Today Islamlar houses many a villa, enjoyed by Istanbul Turks who prefer a holiday in slightly cooler and cleaner air.
Here the locals grow grapes and pomegranates, but you’ll mainly see the men sat gossiping next to the local teahouse. The trout farms remain a place to come for a wonderful fresh meal, or a breakfast consisting of fresh local fare.
The rocket will be the freshest & most tasty you’ve ever had; and the fresh chips cooked in olive oil take some beating.
By night both Kalkan and Kas come alive.
Kas has more of a bohemian feel, people ambling through the cobbled streets, passing the ancient tomb in the street, haggling for textiles, carpets and other goodies, maybe stopping for the traditional Turkish ‘maras’ ice cream, a tulip-shaped glass of tea or a wonderful kebab in the shadow of the mosque.
Most of the villas in Kas are just out of town on the Cukurbag Peninsula.
A reasonable (5km) taxi or Dolmus (local bus) ride into town.
Be sure to try the Piyaz, a white bean salad with tahini sauce.
Travelling along the coast, towards Kalkan you pass the modern marina, the children’s beach park (run by the local hotel school) and halfway to Kalkan the stunning Kaputas Beach, cut in a gorge with all different shades of turquoise in the sea.
Kalkan is a more sophisticated resort, with the villas built onto the mountainside.
Evening are spent enjoying the rooftop restaurants, perched on the top of the old ‘konak’ houses.
Then wandering to a seaside bar for a cocktail, after shopping for glass lanterns, Iznik pottery, handbags or pestemel towel.
Do visit the ‘pastane’, local patisseries which do the most delicious morning pastries and you must try the ‘Gozleme’ pancakes at the Thursday market.
Other things to do in the area include scuba diving as the visibility is excellent, paragliding, horseriding on Patara Beach or kayaking around the sunken ruins at Kekova.
