“Gorgeous villa, gorgeous place!”
Reviewed October 15, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This was my first time at Kalkan Retreat and I hope it won't be the last! The villa is beautiful, well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The views of the bay are gorgeous and watching the sunset on the roof terrace each evening was definitely a highlight! The villa is ideally located and only a short walk away from the town which has plenty of lovely restaurants, bars and shops. I couldn't recommend this villa enough, we were only there for a short break but could have easily stayed longer. A huge thanks to Pauline and co for making the trip so easy and for a fantastic holiday!

“Superb Superb Superb!”
Reviewed October 9, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

As a party of 8 friends we had a wonderful holiday in Kalkan. It was a first time visit for all of us. The Villa is Superb, it's in a excellent location and is furnished to a very high standard. The owner Pauline was extremely helpful and responsive to any enquiries we had from the time of booking and the management company that look after the villa do an excellent job and are on hand for you as soon as you arrive to look after your needs. I would have no hesitation on recommending this Villa, our only regret was that we had to leave !!

“Wonderful Kalkan Retreat”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This was our third time visiting Kalkan Retreat and every time we find something new to enjoy. The villa is in a great location, with a fantastic view of the bay and the sea.

They have made the most of the outdoor space, with lots of different areas to sit and relax, rather than just sunloungers by the pool, although they are perfectly comfortable if you want to just do that. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the roof terrace at night which gives you a great view of the bay and is a great place to find a breeze.

The location itself is a fantastic place to stay, having been to Turkey a few times now we have been able to venture to other tourist spots, and have concluded that none are as peaceful, tranquil, or enjoyable

Thank you for another wonderful stay at a beautiful villa

“Excellent villa in a perfect location. Good sized pool and lovely roof terrace.”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Superb villa, could not have wished for anything more! Spacious, scrupulously clean, very well equipped, nicely furnished, beautiful views and a walk away from the sea and local restaurants. Kalkan is a bustling seaside village, with so many lovely rooftop restaurants, just a few mins.taxi ride away and Patara, a stunning long sandy beach, a 15 min.drive.away. There is something for all the family, just relaxing by the pool [plenty of shade available] or local boat trips, snorkelling or scuba diving available. Turquoise warm, clear sea. Pauline organised all transfers and was extremely helpful. Local people all very friendly. Very highly recommended indeed!

“Fantastic villa in an ideal location”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Kalkan Retreat is a beautiful villa in the attractive town of Kalkan. The villa is immaculate, luxuriously furnished and appointed. Pauline, the owner, is extremely helpful and sorted out airport transfers and car hire for us.
Sunset viewed from the roof top terrace was a particular favourite.
I cannot recommend the villa enough - we hope to visit again.

“Best accomodation and holiday”
Reviewed October 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Late with this review - however cannot recommend it enough. Stayed June 2016 for 10 nights incorporating our Daughters wedding and took friends and family (50) to Kalkan all staying at different accomodation. Kalkan Retreat was amazing as you can see from the pictures they actually don't do it justice. Cleaned to q high standard daily and with cameras alarms and a great security system I cant wait for our next visit to this villa.

“Perfect! Beautiful villa with stunning views!”

We booked Kalkan Retreat after staying here in 2014 (after stumbling across the pictures online of the villa). We then fell in love with Kalkan and decided to return for our wedding this year. At the top of our list was to ensure we could book Kalkan Retreat for our stay! It certainly didn't disappoint, it was just as beautiful, if not more, than what we remembered! It really does have everything you could need (and more!). Our friends stayed in the fourth bedroom and were just as pleased with the villa as we were. It was an amazing base for welcoming friends to Kalkan, as well as a great place to get ready on the day of the wedding. The views are amazing, the walk into town is pleasant, the restaurants are delicious and the locals are the friendliest people you could ask for. We can't wait to go back!!
