“Great villa with lovely views”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The villa is very nicely presented throughout and the views across the bay are very nice. Close proximity to the beach club is nice for a swim in the warm sea and provides a water taxi to the main Kalkan harbour (for a fee - regular taxis are cheaper if there are 4 of you).
We ate at the Finduka (sp?) Hotel just down the hill which was very nice (best meal of holiday), but generally had to travel further for eating out (into Kalkan) - which required a short taxi ride (5 mins). Lots of things to do nearby including activities like water sports (and the villa has a very good condition table tennis table and bats) as well as more cultural sites to see. Weather was very nice in mid-September with sunshine everyday and temperatures in the high 20s. Would definitely recommend.

“The view is a jewel”
Reviewed October 6, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

The villa was just perfect for our needs. Having stayed at other villas in Kalcan, Swallows Rest offered particularly spacious bedrooms and ensuites. The view from the balconies was absolutely beautiful. The villa is about a 20-30 minute walk (depending on your speed!) down to Kalcan town. The super efficient taxi service costs about £6.
The restaurants in the town offer excellent value and delicious food. Trio, Aubergine and Moussakka were our favourites.
We took an all day boat trip which you can book at the harbour. We paid about 35 Turkish Lira and this included a freshly cooked lunch and stops for swimming in the clear blue sea. We had a fantastic week and will book with Karen and Derek again.
