“Plenty of space - lovely villa”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Villa Tahta is a really lovely villa. We had a really relaxing holiday and anything you could need is there.
We did stay for 10 days with our extended family , and even with 6 adults and 1 small child it never felt crowded. There is plenty of space and rooms, and also 2 bathrooms with showers- extra 10 points for that.
We did rent a car, and maybe its not absolutly necessary but it makes your holiday easier, there is a lot to see and do in the surrounding of Kalkan, beautiful beaches and historical places you should visit. And the villa has a privat parking in front of the villa.
Walk down to centrum approx 10-15min, walk up takes a bit more time, but taxi is not too expensive for the lazy ones.
We did get good service both from owners and reps in Turkey.
The only negativ thing, is the pool. pool. Too deep for small kids but great for adults or kids who can swim

We can really recommend this villa.

“What a delight”

person found this review helpful

We (two fifty+ parents and twin eighteen year old daughters) were fortunate enough to stay at Lorraine & Neville's lovely villa for the first two weeks of July. The standard of the villa could not be faulted and was very much home away from home, with a lot of extras.......pool, pergola, hammock, sunshine, etc.
The facilities were better than described and exceeded our expectations. The support staff( Hakan, the cleaners and the pool man) were superb. The pool, sun terrace and gardens were well maintained and the shaded areas provided a welcome relief at the height of the day.
We cannot add to the many comments about Kalkan itself and would only confirm that it really is a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday. We would certainly look to return to Kalkan and Villa Tahta at some time in the near future and would recommend both without hesitation.

“Well-appointed villa in great location”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Villa Tahta with our three teenaged children and it was perfect for our needs. Plenty of space and a well-equipped kitchen for a family. We stayed in peak season but it was mostly a peaceful spot -- just occasional happy noise from neighbouring families. We spent some days by the pool and other days exploring the many sights and beaches not far from Kalkan. We found Kalkan itself quite expensive compared with the other places we stayed in Turkey but the fruit and vegetables were cheap to buy and we cooked for ourselves most nights. An internet connection was the only feature missing from this property which would really have valued.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments about our Turkish home, it's wonderful to have guests that enjoy it as much as we do. After much debate I have succumbed to my husband's view and for 2014 we will have a wi-fi connection.

“It must be special, we keep going back, again and again !”
Reviewed April 23, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We love this Villa, it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Light and spacious accomodation, with wonderful views of Kalkan and Kalamar bays with a backdrop of mountains. Lots of outside seating inc. covered/shady dining table, we love to sit outside at night on the comfy sofa with a nice glass of red, watching the Sun go down and the Moon rise, bliss! Lovely coast line and harbour walks around Kalkan old town which is full of wonderful restaurants. The people are very friendly and helpful and most speak a little English. The old town is unspoiled with winding cobbled streets and lots of interesting shops and places to stop for a Turkish tea or an Efes. Getting around is easy with very cheap taxi's and even cheaper Dolmus buses.

Thanks so much for the lovely review and we are delighted that you love Villa Tahta, Kalkan and Turkey as much as we do. We normally walk to the centre of Kalkan ourselves, it only being a 10 minute walk to the nearest restaurants and shops and a further 5 minutes into the heart of the village. We agree about the Turkish people they are so friendly and generous and really make the holiday special.

We too have spent many hours watching the sun go down and then the magnificent star lit sky, very special.
