An Insight Into Kalkan
Good dining is a way of life in Kalkan, whether in the locantas among the locals where a meal costs a few pounds or by candlelight in the atmospheric harbour side restaurants or the romantic roof terrace restaurants for which Kalkan is renowned. Alternatively you can take a short trip into the hills and the pretty village of Ismalar with its trickling streams and springs and enjoy a dish of locally caught fresh trout traditionally cooked in olive oil.
Kalkan has an array of sophisticated antique shops, fashion boutiques, art galleries, jewellers, hand painted chinaware shops along with traditional souvenir outlets. Authentic hand woven Turkish rugs and carpets are also widely sold. Shopping in Kalkan should never be rushed and your host whilst browsing will inevitably offer you a glass of traditional Turquish tea. The maze of cobbled lanes that wind their way down to the harbour are perfectly complimented by bougainvillea-clad pensions, shops and restaurants.
If you plan to self cater there are plenty of supermarkets in Kalkan from which to purchase food and consumables and many will deliver to the villa. There is an excellent fish market butchers and stalls selling locally produced fruit and vegetables at a low price. There is a Thursday market selling a wide range of goods, from locally produced fruit and spices, to jewellery, leatherwear, souvenirs to clothes with fake designer labels.
A variety of Gullet cruises are available from Kalkans cosmopolitan harbour and will often include a visit to Kaputas beach, Mouse Island, Snake Island (just the shape of the islands, not their inhabitants) and the Blue Caves to name but a few destinations, you can go swimming, snorkelling by the coral wreaths and even participate in a mud bath. The cost is approximately £10 per person for a party of ten and lunch is normally provided for within that cost, and the ship is at your sole disposal all day.
Kalkan also offers massage, manicure parlours, numerous amounts of shops selling an array of merchandise as well as Turkish Baths that offer a sensual relaxing experience, if you have never tried one before there a must.
We would recommend exchanging currency locally rather than in the UK, you will find a better exchange rate locally within the town of Kalkan many Banks and Post Offices.
We have produced a guidebook to Kalkan and the various nearby attractions and recommended places to visit, so please do not be concerned you will arrive at Villa Breeze and will have no representative to guide you around. We have tried to think of all the small important things that will make your holiday a memorable one. You will find this book at the villa so please feel free to browse through at your leisure. We also have a good friend of ours Roger who manages our villa, he is always available via the villa mobile if you need help or guidance, just to reassure you he is English so there's no need to be concerned about communication issues.
If you wish to make calls back home we would recommend using the local phone shops or Post Offices you will find these a very cheap alternative to using your own mobile phone.
Hints & Recommendations
We would recommend hiring a car whilst you stay at our villa, the cost of hiring a normal family sized car is very reasonable approximately £20 per day including insurance, We can arrange for a hire car to be delivered to the villa and it makes getting about much easier, or alternatively you could use the local taxis they again are very reasonable and their are plenty available in town.
We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance for your visit to Turkey, you may find your family are already covered under your household insurance, but please confirm this with your insurance company before travelling.
The nearest airport to Kalkan is Dalaman, it takes around about an hour and half from the airport to Kalkan via taxi or a minibus, transport costs are very reasonable in Turkey and can easily be arranged either by yourselves or by us prior to travel, please see below for further details.
Flights to Dalaman are plentiful in supply and it only takes around about three and half hours from the UK on average, but it pays to book your flights early as a rule of thumb, there are plenty of airlines that fly to Dalaman airport if you perform a search via:
www.google.co.uk or www.ask.co.uk etc
You will need to organise a visitors visa prior travel to Turkey, this is easily arranged via www.evisa.gov.tr ,for further information just visit the Turkish Consulate website
We are a family of 8 and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately return if we all get together again.

Good value for money at the up-market resort of Kalkan. Straighforward walk downhill to the town but get a taxi back since the return journey is steep, and hot in August. A roomy villa which is not obvious from the photographs and most bedrooms have their own ensuite! Pool is a good depth all round and well-kept during our entire stay. Pool lights for night-time fiddly to locate but worked fine once we knew where the switch was. Roger, the villa manager, very helpful with just the right amount of contact. Patio and pool area fairly private - only one villa next door and one villa across the road. We cooked in a few nights and found all the pots/pans that we needed. Complimentary welcome pack very helpful and due to our flights being delayed we arrived very late at about 00:30 but were welcomed by Roger and shown around. A few seats on the first floor balcony or on the top deck sunning area would be a great addition. The outdoor dining table is ready for some tlc in the winter maintenance months however it didnt affect our enjoyment of our holiday at this villa. We hired a car which was tricky to park in the lower parking area and there is a much easier driveway at the upper ground floor level. Very handy local shop on the main road to Islamlar, behind the villa and about 400 yard walk uphill - fresh bread daily 29p / 1TRL - you can walk there without needing a hire car. Local supermarkets have taxis outside ready to take you/your shopping back to the villa.

This is a beautiful villa about 20 minutes walk from the harbour and the restaurants in Kalkan. ( which is a great place to shop and eat) Plenty of taxis available to get back to the villa.
We had a smooth airport pick up and transfer organised by the owner. The pool is beautiful- and very welcome in the heat. The views from the villa are amazing especially from the roof.
We had some problems with the electricity cutting out ( affecting mainly sockets in the kitchen/ 2 air conditioning units and the washing machine) Roger the property manager efficiently organised an electrician the same day we reported it. Unfortunately the fault recurred over 3 days which was a bit inconvenient as we had to juggle bedrooms and we ran out of clean towels.Luckily we didnt need to use all the bedrooms. I understand a repair has been organised which will fix the problem permanently
looking at the previous comments-we had plenty of cups/ plates etc. and there were 4 parasols which was plenty for round the pool.
One suggestion-It would have been nice to have some comfy outdoor chairs either on the patio or on the roof to " chill" in the evenings.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa- we had a great time apart from the electricity problems.

We loved our holiday in Villa Breeze.
Location is ideal, Kalkan is a great town, the villa facilities were great - the pool was perfect and always pristine, the pool table was fun, we used the barbecue, it was sunny (which always helps!), and there were no problems with insects which have near enough ruined holidays in other places with a similar climate, so thats one less thing for you to worry about if youre reading this.
The kitchen might have been a bit small if there were loads of us, but there were only 2, and we took the guide books advice and almost always ate out anyway, so it certainly wasnt a problem for us.
Minor negatives - hot water was unreliable at first, but they happily got tradespeople to come around until it was fixed. And the wi-fi was intermittent at working with mobiles, although it was fine with the laptop.
Thanks to Roger for helping us while we were there, and to David for always being on hand to help out from the UK. We will recommend Villa Breeze to friends and family.

What a lovely week we"ve just spent at this wonderful villa in august, my party being 5 adults & 5 children ageing from 17months-16 yrs. The villa, the location, the views, amazing, absolutely loved every minute of it just wished we had booked two weeks, the villa is very home from home, very spacious and the pool& games room were in constant use by us all as temps got to high 30s. We spent many an evening round the pool watching the sun go down. Kalkan is quite hilly but that wasnt a problem as taxis up and down only cost 10 lira £3, we ate at some lovely restaurants on the harbour,Seaport, Ilyada, and trio all fabulous food, the swordfish is a must yummy!!! Everyone really friendly, oldy worldy cobbled streets and numerous shops to explore. Roger the villa manager is a sound man always on hand if you need anything popped in a few times to see if everthing was ok, recommended a few places to visit .Kalkan beachpark is a must had a fab day out there, free boat taxi over to the park and back. Patara beach lovely and you get to see pataras old ruins on the way in the taxi, 100 lira return not bad! Thanks David and caroline for letting us stay at your wonderful villa and will be recommending it to our friends and family. And we will definately be returning in the future!!! thanks again.
Thank you for your kind and honest review Dawn, it was a pleasure talking to you and offering our assistance prior to your holiday, and of course having you stay at our property and were both glad you and your family had a wonderful holiday, as our family does every time we visit. Also Roger & Didem asked us to send their best wishes, and again express it was a real pleasure assisting you during your stay. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the very near future. Kind regards David & Caroline

This villa is located about a 25-30 minute walk to the harbour and restaurant area of Kalkan. The walk back takes considerably longer than this as the villa is located at the top of a very steep hill north of the D400 (the main road running across the northern part of the town). You need to take a taxi which are readily available in the town but not so easy to call from the villa if the villa mobile is not available (as was the case during our two week stay). The villa lacks adequate cooking equipment and we struggled to cook for 7 people. The two patio umbrellas were in a very poor state and despite asking the Villa Manager for more, none were forthcoming. It was a shame but we were unable to swim in the pool for 2 days of the holiday when the water turned green. We noticed that other guests had commented in the guest book that they had also had similar experiences with poorly maintained pool water. When we have stayed in other villas the pool maintenance contractors have always maintained the pool surround to an extremely high standard ensuring that the pool area was swept and hosed down daily. Unfortunately this did not occur at Villa Breeze and as a result there was stagnant water along the pool edge for much of our stay. During the second week of the holiday the electricity was disconnected which did cause us some alarm (as opposed to a normal power cut which are relatively common in Turkey) however it was reconnected and we were able to enjoy the remainder of the holiday. It is worth noting that the photographs were taken in 2008 when the villa was new...........Overall we had a number of concerns which we have raised with the owners.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Roger was very helpful.
We have rented holiday houses all over the world and I can say, without hesitation, that yours is up with the best. I believe that properties can generally be divided into two classes: those bought to make money and those bought to live in and rent out as a secondary issue. The former are recognised by the corner-cutting in furnishings and equipment, usually cheap and nasty. Yours definitely belongs to the latter. Just about everything needed for a home from home holiday was there. I intend to submit a glowing review to Trip Advisor in due course.
Roger has probably told you that the oven packed in. We called Roger on the villa phone the maintenance man appeared the same day and returned the day after to complete the job: so no inconvenience at all.
The little restaurant up the hill doesnt look all that great but their casseroles were outstanding and only 12ytl including unlimited salad and flat bread - worth pointing out to your guests. Ali, the fruit and vegetable man on the same block became a generous friend. On one occasion, I only wanted a few onions: I had to force him to take some money for them.
Thank you for a lovely holiday. We shall have no hesitation in recommending your villa. You may quote any of the contents of this email to assist future guests.

We were a party of 9 Family and friends. The Villa was fantastic and had all the amenities you will need or could wish for. The hills are a little problem in Kalkan but we used the villa mobile to call taxis that were very cheap. A must is the boat trip to Kokova and the sunken city it was totally amazing the food was beautifully cooked. I would recommend Kalkan as a warm welcoming ,friendly, and lively but not rowdy town with plenty of shops, bars and resturants
Thanks again David & Caroline for letting us stay at your amazing Villa. Best wishes Natasha Gray, Maylandsea, Essex. July 2012.
5***** We have just returned from this villa, and the 2nd from last review was spot on, firstly we would like to thank Roger who looked after us, what a wonderful host, we found him so helpful and the fresh bread each morning was a wonderful touch mate "many thanks".
The town is wonderful so many resturaunts to choose from and they all coudnt do enough to help you, and the kids loved the attention the waiters showed them.
The villa was spot on, it had everything we needed, the kids loved the games room and internet, my wife loved the sun loungers and the pool and I loved the efes beer, and what a wonderful location with amazing views overlooking the old town, the sea and mountains, just fantastic! We would highly recommend both the villa and the town for any families with children, we will defiantly be back. Many thanks to David & Caroline for the helpful chats and emails prior to our holiday, you both have a wonderful place out there.
Paul, Julie & family
Hi Paul & Julie, Firstly thank you for kind review and secondly your both most welcome it was a pleasure to assist you, we're glad you all had a great holiday and we look forward to be able to welocme you back soon. Best wishes David & Caroline
Had a great time at Villa Breeze. Our party was 7 adults and 2 children and the property accommodated us easily. Roger was great and ensured our holiday ran smoothly and the pool man delivered bread, milk, water etc every morning. Kalkan is really safe and friendly and we found that the owner of the supermarket would deliver our shopping to the villa allowing us to enjoy a cold Efes lager overlooking the harbour. We will be back!
Hi, Many thanks for your kind review we're glad you all had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back next year. Best wishes David & Caroline
Both my husband and I stayed in 'Villa Breeze' for two weeks in October 2009. The villa was very comfortable with everything you'd want for a relaxing holiday. There was a slight issue with no water for a couple of hours but we understand the whole of Kalkan suffered the same drought and to be honest it didn't affect our holiday or reflect on this wonderful villa. We hope to be back soon to Villa Breeze and we love Kalkan you can eat in a different restaurant every night.Mr & Mrs MiddletonCheshire
Dear David & Caroline,Firstly we just wanted to thank you both for the very friendly conversation we had via telephone & email prior to us holidaying in your villa, you were both very helpful and I know we did ask you so many questions as we had never booked a villa direct with an owner before but nothing was ever any trouble for you to answer.Now for our review of your Villa & Kalkan, well firstly as you know this was our first visit to Turkey and we found your villa absolutely fabulous both in appearance & the location, the views from nearly every window were amazing, and we felt so looked after from the moment we arrived at Dalaman Airport till the moment we handed the keys back to your villa manager Ertan (I hope I spelt his name correctly), your villa is extremely well furnished and equipped and the many DVD's you have supplied came in very useful as for some strange reason Rebecca, Abi & Alex find it so hard to cope without their traditional Sky TV channels for two weeks, and we all loved the pool table (Jeff said it was a lot bigger than the one's he's used to playing on, but he would say that after I beat him twice lol). The swimming pool was cleaned daily and was a welcome sight after we had come back from the town after a hot day, the cleaners came, cleaned and changed the bed linen and towels as promised, to be honest the all round service we found absolutely faultless.Kalkan and its many restaurants & shops that we managed to visit were all fantastic there food and hospitality was truly understated, Patara beach was absolutely beautiful and one of the best kept beeches we have every visited.We have all said without doubt we will be booking your villa next year, thank you once again for letting us stay and experience a truly incredible holiday.Kind regardsThe Croucher family (July 2009)
Dear David and Caroline, The villa was even better than expected, very spacious and bright. The sun shines on most parts of the villa throughout the day and the pool and air-conditioning in every room certainly helped cool us down! We were pleased to be barely overlooked at all and in our own private location made for a very peaceful break. As we arrived at the beginning of the season we had a couple of days of rain, however with the pool table, plasma tv and amazing views of the town we were kept amused and didn't really notice. The Villa is only a short downhill walk into the main town where you will find the most beautiful restaurants along the harbour, the service is excellent and the people very friendly. Having been to Turkey over fifteen times i would say this is the best experience of the country i have had. Thank you for providing the wonderful villa! Camilla and Louise 15thᆱth May 2009
Lynda Penny, Essex.Dear David & Caroline.Thank you for hiring us your villa, the villa is very modern and comfortable and situated in a very quite location with great views, we found it to be very relaxing and peaceful.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely villa. We will defiantly be booking again next year!
Wow what a Villa! I stayed at the villa just after the property had been furnished in the early part of January 2008, I have been a friend of the property owners for many years.David & Caroline purchased the property in the middle part of 2007, and took a number of month's to achieve the desired standard with regards to the general look and feel of the villa as well as it's creature comforts, I had taken an interest durring this process and had seen many pictures both internal and external showing all it's features and mod con's so to speak, I thought it was all very impressive, but I have stayed at a number of villas in the past with my family and thought they were all very much alike in reality. How wrong was I
