This was our second time of staying at this amazing villa,there was plenty of room for the ten of us.The location is perfect,an easy 12 minute walk into the town.The swimming pool is huge compared to other villas around.It is very well equipped with excellent appliances and furniture.The cleaners were very good and Ali was always about if we needed any advice,he also delivered our bread daily and water when required.Hopefully we will return for another great stay at Villa Gemma Lycia,the owner Lena was very helpful and easy to deal with when booking.
The views in real life are even better than the pictures. Quiet location 10 mins walk to beautiful, peaceful and picture perfect harbour town of Kalkan. Gorgeous rooftop restaurants, quaint little shops and a few small bars await you in Kalkan if you can manage to drag youself away from the mesmerising views and the sheer luxury and beauty of this idylic private villa.
A fantastic villa with everything you need for a superb holiday. A great location with unrivalled views only 10 minutes walk from the beautiful town of Kalkan which has to be the best destination in Turkey. You will not be disappointed!
We have just returned to the UK following a 2 week stay at Villa Gemma Lycia; the villa is in a great position approx 10 min walk from Kalkan center and 5 min from a small stony beach ( part of palm Beach club and a 12TL cost for a bed per day which also includes unlimited water taxi rides to/ from downtown Kalkan. Onto the house; it is absolutely huge and the proportions were perfect for our 3 couples and 2 children to each have enough space to be under the same roof and not claustrophobic; the kitchen allowed us to prepare food when we wanted and Ali ( manager ); brought fresh bread & water every morning. The pool area id equally large and there are so many balconies that we didn't explore them all. The villa has full facilities ( e.g. washing machine ) so there is no need to bring your entire wardrobe. In fact, everything about the villa and its location were brilliant and i cannot recommend it enough. My only note of any worth from a negative view would be that the pool only has a very small 'shallow end' , however, we were teaching our toddlers to swim and this turned out to be a blessing. The manager Ali helped hugely when organizing trips for us; we had a day trekking up a river gorge and a day on a sailing boat which was great value and such a brilliant memory. We all will be visiting again. Thank you for letting us stay.
We had a wonderful fortnight at Villa Gemma Lycia in Kalkan for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. A group of 6 friends holidayed with us for the first week and then we had a peaceful/romantic week just to ourselves at the Villa. Kalkan has retained its old world charm and all our friends felt very safe holidaying here. We have holidayed in Kalkan for the last 6 years with 5 of those visits at this very special Villa. The villa has so much indoor and outdoor space that we never felt cramped and the views from the private pool terrace are very special. The Villa owner is a delight to deal with and the Villa management team ensure everything runs smoothly once your there. We have already booked another return visit to Kalkan and Villa Gemma Lycia and are counting down the days to our next holiday - we can't wait !
5th time to Kalkan and 4th time back to the wonderfull Villa Gemma Lycia. The Villa is very private and has breathtaking uninterupted views out to sea as well as lovely views of the harbour and small picturesque town of Kalkan. We love the layout of the Villa with its 3 living areas/lounges on 3 floors , 5 ensuite bedrooms , 2 further toilets, kitchen, and utility room but it is the size and quality of the outdoor living area that includes built in BBQ and Bar with outdoor fridge and gas burner unit that really sets the Villa apart from others in Kalkan. The pool area is very private and a relaxing place to be both day and night with a fantastic soft seated area as well as a large outdoor dining table under shade where we have enjoyed tranquil breakfasts , quiet lunches and some evening BBQs and local take aways. The day to day management of the villa is handled by Ali the pool man and a couple of lovely ladies who clean the villa and empty the bins, Ali even brings fresh bread everyday and replenshises the bottled water if required. The owner of the Villa is a joy to deal with from start to finish and has security and comfort at the top of her list when it comes to providing for her guests. This year the pool was newly tiled wth a couple of new sunbeds replacing older ones. The property is alarmed and has a very good safe as well as great air conditioning in all bedrooms and all lounges. Not overlooked it is in the peacefull area of Kalkan called Komurluk which is within 10-12 mins easy walking distance to town (very flat), though we often taxi in and out to save our legs for the hills, inclines and steps of the small picturesque cobbled streets of Kalkan and the many fantastic roof top restaurants. We have already rebooked for 2017 for a special celebration and wouldn't have chosen anywhere else other than Kalkan and Villa Gemma Lycia.
