My name is Mehmet, I was born in Kalkan and since my retirement from the Turkish Airforce have managed the family business here in Kalkan. The family has been involved in tourism since 1980 and now maintains 9 villas, runs a successful restaurant. Because of our unique knowledge and connections with Kalkan we are able to offer a comprehensive service not only in first class maintenance but in organising any tours, trips and transfers if required.
Why Mehmet Kayir chose Kalkan
Villa Lilyum - was built by myself in 2008 and in the future would like to build others to the same quality and finish as this delightful villa.
What makes this Villa unique

Beautiful Villa Lilyum
Lovely villa, owner could not have been more helpful. Clean spacious villa indoors and out. Lovely pool with lots of outside seating. We had a really lovely time.
A lovely villa in a beautiful setting
Our stay at villa lilyum was a marvellous experience , the villa was clean and comfortable and is exactly as shown in the photographs , the views from every room are wonderful and the pool and barbecue area excellent .
Mehmet is efficient and very quick to respond to enquiries and any problems you may have. The man who greeted us on arrival was also very nice and helpful, I believe he was a relative of Mehmets,
The pool and outside area was cleaned and kept tidy every day
Kalkan itself is a short walk from the villa but be warned the hills are extremely steep so after the first 3days of tackling these we walked down to the town and taxied back which is about 15turkish lire. Kalkan offers very many wonderful restaurants which all serve excellent food and if you want to go a little upmarket go to the harbour .
All in all we had a great time and wouldn’t hesitate to go back to this lovely villa
The villa was exactly as described and with ample space for the number of people.
I holiday in Kalkan every year and this is the first time in this villa.
The views from the villa are wonderful and the standard is the best I have stayed in.
Although we were only a party of 6 adults, the villa was not too big. It was great to have ensuites on the rooms.
A Nice welcome pack was included.
Mehmet also arranged transport which was great.
I would recommend this villa.
Th villa is situated quite high up and the climb back is a hike - you can always walk down and taxi back up.
It takes 20 mins to walk to the harbour.
Thanks for your booking my villa and nice compliment about the villa. Also l am very happy to hear that you had good holiday. I try to do my best for my all guests as usual. I hope you come again and nice holiday.
Villa Lilyum - Lovely !
We had a fantastic holiday at villa Lilyum in Kalkan. The villa was lovely, well maintained, very spacious and had everything we needed for our holiday . Mehmet was there to meet us on arrival and was available by phone throughout our stay. The views over Kalkan Bay are spectacular from the villa, especially from the roof top terrace. Whilst the centre of Kalkan is within walking distance the local taxi service from the villa was great. Kalkan hosts a variety of restaurants which all serve a great standard of food . Several of the restaurants have roof top terraces which makes dining out really special. We would definitely consider returning and would definitely recommend the villa to others.

The nearest bank, doctors, pharmacy, dentist are all with in 5 mins At the southwest corner of the Turkish coast (Turquoise Coast) lies one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of the Mediterranean. Kalkan was once occupied by the Greek Ottomans and their legacy has left an old town full of character. It has steep cobbled streets that wind down towards the harbour and the locals are exceptionally friendly.
During the day Kalkan is almost disarmingly laid-back, as visitors choose to enjoy the crystal clear waters lapping the Lycian coast. The public beach next to Kalkan's harbour was recently extended and is more than adequate for swimming and sunbathing. However you choose to spend your days, no-one can resist being back in Kalkan in the evening, for the variety and quality of eating places on offer is quite astonishing for such a compact town. There are little restaurants that are so low key that many visitors never notice them; just the place to enjoy delicious and genuine local cooking. Magical surroundings, a dash of relaxed sophistication and a seeminly limitless variety of places to explore make Kalkan irresistible. The restaurants in Kalkan offer an exceptionally high standard of food and service ,many restaurants have romantic roof terraces looking out over Kalkan. Eating out is excellent value and the Turkish wines are surprisingly good. The pretty cobbled streets of the old town are an Aladdin's cave with an abundance of shops selling clothes, jewellery, handbags, gifts, etc. There is also a weekly market on a Thursday. There are a number of bars that stay open through the small hours and play music but no loud nightclubs.
