Kalkan is a Mediterranean harbour village with buildings covered in bougainvillea, winding cobbled streets, roof terraces, restaurants and bars. A picturesque harbour with a recently extended shingle beach more than adequate for swimming and sunbathing and stunning sandy beaches nearby.
As a village, Kalkan is far more sophisticated than the average holiday resort and is situated on the Turkish Riviera. It is packed with arguably the best selection of quality restaurants outside Istanbul and those who have discovered this Mediterranean jewel return again and again. One of Kalkans biggest assets is the warm welcome you will get from the locals, ask any previous visitor to the village and they will tell you all about the friendliness of the people, both in the hotels and in the village itself.
By daytime Kalkan is very quiet and peaceful. Stroll around the village, look around the small interesting shops, little carpet bazaars and arty jewellery shops and enjoy a glass of apple tea with the local shopkeepers.
Take a sea taxi from the harbour to Kalkans beach clubs where you can swim or snorkel.
Take a cruise aboard a gulet, which takes us over the clear blue waters for which this enchanting area of Turkey is renowned and offers great value for money.
A dolmus (a local bus) from the bus station takes 10 mins to reach Kaputas Beach, a lovely sandy beach perched at the foot of a ravine.
To the west is Patara Beach, regularly featured in lists of the top 10 most beautiful and undiscovered beaches in the world and its 18km of sand make it easy to see why. Patara contains many ancient ruins as well as being the birthplace of St Nicholas. The whole beach is a protected area due to the turtles who nest there.
By night Kalkan is lit up with coloured lanterns displayed outside the numerous shops that line the quaint cobbled streets. As well as the variety of quality eating places on offer there are outdoor cafes and bars catering for varied musical tastes.
You can sit cross legged on killims or floor cushions and sample Turkish dishes in the traditional way or indulge in an orgy of seafood in one of the smart waterfront restaurants.
Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly. There is simply no other town quite like Kalkan along Turkeys coast.

THE TURQUOISE COAST/LYCIA REGION
Sparkling turquoise seas, endless golden sun kissed beaches, bathed in sunshine for nearly 300 days a year, and local Turkish hospitality that is second to none. Kalkan is set in a beautiful area of Turkey, scenically spectacular and steeped in history, right in the heart of the old Lycian region.
There are many ancient sites in the immediate vicinity including Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Tlos and Patara. Slightly further afield are the marvellous sights at Kekova, Demra, Myra, Phaselis, Olympos, Aspendos, and even Ephesus is within reach (although this requires an overnight stay). Also a simple trip up to the mountains behind Kalkan will surely take your breath away. If you are feeling energetic it is possible to snorkel, scuba dive, windsurf, paraglide or go mountain walking.
At Kekova you can hire a boat over to the pretty little harbour at Kale and clamber up to the hilltop Byzantine fort past the eerie sarcophagi of the ancient Lycians.
At the village of Bezirgan you can watch as carpets are woven and at Arycanda there is a wonderful archaeological site, whose remains and setting rival thosse of Delphi.
The combination of a wonderful climate, turquoise sea, beautiful beaches, stunning scenery and numerous ancient sites makes the south coast of Turkey the perfect place to holiday.
Villa Julian Kalkan is a beautiful, well equipped, peaceful, central holiday villa. Communication from the owner was brilliant which really put my mind at ease as this was the first time I had ever booked a holiday outside of a travel agent .. nothing was to much trouble and every question answered. The villa is very spacious as we were a family group of 6 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 4. We all had plenty of space ... the pool is brilliant and cleaned every morning by very friendly staff from the nearby hotel. We were collected from the airport and headed to kalkan which took approx. 2 hours but this did include a stop of for refreshments and the transfer really is not that bad. Being in Kalkan is like being in the middle of a mountain !!! it is very steep .. the walk down into the town is ok but the walk back is a killer ... especially in 43 -45 heat !! we rented scooters which where a Godsend, taxis are also available and really cheap. Kalkan really is the place for a relaxing holiday, it is very unspoilt - I can imagine in 10 years time it will be much more touristy !!!! bare this in mind if you are looking for a rocking place as Kalkan is more glass of wine and restaurants which is idyllic !!!!
We jet skied, did the beaches and beach clubs, took an amazing boot trip with captain Alli ( Ramzan can help you out with this from the near by hotel !) a must if you do visit Kalkan , and just enjoyed lounging by the pool.
All in all a most enjoyable family holiday and we would most defiantly return to Villa Julian and Kalkan.

The villa had a beautiful view over the bay. It was ideally situated for the bus station, supermarket and taxis but it is a steep walk down and back to the harbour,however taxis are plentiful and cheap.

The villa has everything needed for a comfortable self- catering holiday.
Unlike many rental villas Juline has a very nice atmosphere, that is because it is clearly someones personal home.
Only 1 problem arose, the first 2 days were not sunny so there was no hot water. I had to find the tank, switch on the power and open the valves. The managing agent did not know how to sort this problem. However the following day we were back to solar heated water and the electric heater switched off.
The property is great with stunning views,but Kalkan is extremely steep we usually returned from town by taxi.
We were a party of five with my two sons, 21 and 16, and my partners son, aged 11. Due to the fact that the villa was so spacious and everyone had their own space it was an outstanding success. Everyone enjoyed it and the views from the villa were spectacular. The villa is very well equipped and the pool area is wonderful with very comfortable sun beds. We are already saving our pennies for another visit.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa. We stayed for 2 weeks in August 2007 with our family. There was 8 of us in total and the villa is so spacious it was perfect. It is clean and well equipped with magnificent sea and mountain views. The pool and surrounding areas are clean and well maintained with comfortable sun loungers. We used the bar and restaurant facilities at the Samira Deluxe Hotel only a minute's walk away where the staff are very friendly and helpful. Kalkan itself is a beautiful place with its cobbled streets leading to the harbour and an abundance of shops, open cafes and quality eating places. The maintenance staff are on hand should they be needed for anything. Overall Villa Juline is the perfect place to relax and unwind and we would definitely recommend both the villa and Kalkan itself.Rosemary and Tommy Welsh, Wallsend, Tyne and Wear
We stayed at Villa Juline for two weeks in August 08. Had a superb holiday. We have been on villa holidays in the past but this was better than any other. It was clean and well equipped with breathtaking views. The maintenance manager called regularly to enquire whether he could help with anything. Kalkan itself is a picturesque place which has kept its quaintness. There are many top class restuarants and the people are so friendly. The beaches at Kaputas and Patara are fabulous with turquoise water and golden sand. Altogether a great place to visit.Shelagh and Kevin Ahern
Idyllic setting, spectacular views, wonderful restaurants with food and service second to none. The villa was scrupiously clean and spacious. There were 8 people in our party and it was more than adequate. Our first visit to Turkey and more than we expected. We will definitely be back, had a truly memorable holiday.June Lillford
