Apartment in Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - South Facing Views And Sunshine All Day Long, Only 12-15 Minutes Walk To The Town Centre
About Nicola Empacher
Our names are Nikki and Konrad Empacher. We first went on holiday to Kalkan in May 2009 and were hooked instantly. So much so that we decided to buy an apartment the following year and haven't looked back. On 18th May 2011 we were married in Kalkan and had a wonderful week with family and friends. Then on 18th May 2013 we were thrilled with the arrival of our little boy, who has since travelled with us to Kalkan and loved every minute of it. Kalkan is a home away from home for us and I don't think we will ever get tired of going there.
Nicola Empacher purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Nicola Empacher chose Kalkan
We like the location of the property as it is bathed in sunshine all day long with some great views. It is easily walkable into town, with some local shops and restaurants also nearby. It is one of 16 apartments in a very unique complex with a stunning cascading pool.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love our apartment because it has a great private sun terrace with sunshine all day long and private access into the swimming pool for when you need to cool off. We love open plan living and al fresco dining at home, but also being within walking distance from Kalkan for when we want to dine out or go shopping.

The perfect place for relaxation
My husband and I spent a week in apartment Elena in September and had a wonderful, relaxing stay . Like previous posts have said, the majority of the time we had the whole pool and communal area all to ourselves making it feel very private and exclusive. The main bed was super comfy and we always had hot water for a shower. Yes the plumbing isn’t great and you have to put toilet paper in the bin rather than flush, but we’re used to doing this in Greece so no big problem (however you have to provide your own bags for the toilet bins). The location was perfect for us in that there are a great selection of good restaurants, a couple of supermarkets and a brilliant spa at the Elixir hotel all within 5 minutes downhill walk ( though a lot tougher walking back up). Walk into the start of town takes about 15 minutes and taxi back to apartment is 20lira.
Local CanCan supermarket will Deliver to the apartment for free any shopping.
The location was also very quiet at night, though we had a regular visitor in the form of a friendly and beautiful ginger cat who we named Harvey. We would frequently return to the apartment to find him waiting to greet us on the terrace for a stroke. Other than that, very little traffic.
If I return to Kalkan I would definitely stay at the Ekena
What a super property. Great layout and location with a wonderful view. We were well looked after by Nikki’s representative Suleyman who recommend and arranged 2 days out which were both highlights of our holiday.
Just returned from a lovely stay in beautiful Kalkan.
The apartment is well situated in the town with lovely views and easy access to the town centre.
The apartment was well presented and spacious. We had just a couple of minor issues that were sorted out very quickly.
Something just to bare in mind if you are a party of sun worshipers, if there were 6 of you staying at the apartment there would not be an adequate provision of sun loungers, for example there were only 2 provided for private use of the apartment with the rest having to use the communal ones. There weren’t very many of these and some had no cushions (not the apartment owners fault) . There were 5 in our party and because the 2 apartments next to us were full this sometimes meant there were none available.
The apartment owner from booking to leaving was very easy to deal with and provided any assistance/bookings we required with our stay.
We had the most fantastic 2 weeks in Elena. It was the perfect place to totally relax and chill out on the lovely sun terrace then swim in the absolutely huge beautiful pool. It was a brilliant apartment for a family of four with plenty of space and was very well equipped. Suleyman was very helpful too. Kalkan itself is a very special place with lovely friendly people, amazing restaurants and interesting shops. We loved Captain Ali’s boat trip and going to the local market. We will definitely be returning for another lovely holiday.

Dalaman Airport is the nearest airport and is about 1 hour and 45 minutes journey in a private transfer. Car hire from the airport is also possible.
It is a 12-15 minute walk downhill into Kalkan town centre. Kas, a slightly larger port town, is about 25 minutes drive. The biggest town nearby is Fethiye, about 1 hour's drive north of Kalkan.
