Detached Private Villa in Kalkan, Kalkan, Turkey - Exclusive Setting, 15 Minutes Walk To Shops, Restaurants And Beach Clu
About Tracy Pullee
Steve and I visited Kalkan in October 2009. The charm of Kalkan and the high quality restaurants drew us in. We left with a memorable holiday and also returned home as owners of a building project. This was to be the original! It was part of a small complex of exclusive Villas and one of the first glass fronted contemporary villas to be built in Kalkan. We immediately fell in love with the style, luxury and amazing views and after our first season of rentals and rave reviews we decided to purchase our second Villa in the same area and same builder - Serenity II. Kalkan has also worked it's charm on our children (ages 17 -22) and our parents who love the people, history, boat trips, diving, turquoise blue sea and delicious food- hence the need for a larger villa!
Tracy Pullee purchased this Villa in 2011

Amazing family Holiday
Before our holiday started it was a pleasure dealing with the Villa's owners as they were more than helpful with great communication and sending us all useful information to help with smooth running of our holiday.
Our holiday started once we was greeted by our driver who provided us with chilled water and a small gift for the women in our group which was totally unexpected and the mini bus was extremely comfortable. We was welcome by Billy who explained the running's of the villa and also a mobile phone was provided if you need to contact him at any time.
The Villa was beautiful with the most breath taking and stunning views. My grandchildren loved the swimming pool and not forgetting the many family tournaments on the pool table and table tennis. The BBQ was used on a regular bases.
We visited many restaurants in Kalkan and they catered well for a party of 12 we especially enjoyed our meal at Poy Poy. Two members in our group are vegetarian and there was a abundance of food for them to eat. I would highly recommend this villa to all, ladies make sure you pack you flat shoes. I would highly recommend this villa, it lived up to our expectations and more.
Kalkan's pebble beach has been carefully and attractively extended. There are also several beach clubs with fantastic facilities including water-sports, refreshments, sunbeds and swimming platforms. The beach clubs will collect you from the villa using a free taxi service.There are also stunning beaches a short drive away. Patara is a 15 min drive or bus ride, and is regularly featured as one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful beaches. Smaller Kaputas beach is also a few minutes drive away.
