Kalkan Retreat is in a perfect location. The town has many bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance and plenty of supermarkets. If you like Baklawa please try Saliha Sultani Baklawa It was delicious
The villa itself is very clean and tidy and adequately kitted out for families felt like I am in my own home. Kitchen have all the utensils, even more than what we have at home. The views are breathtaking from every room. Massive terraces, swimming pool, BBQs both gas and traditional. We have a 10 year old and a 8 year old who remarked that this is the best holiday we have ever had. We would definitely book this villa again.
The company who manage Kalkan Retreat are excellent and the rep Ozay is amazing always a call away. Special thanks to villa owner Pauline she answered all the questions we had and provided us all the relevant information about the area and the villa. The villa is exactly as described and there were no hidden costs or charges. If you are visiting this region of Turkey make sure you stay in Kalkan Retreat you won’t regret it. Once again Thanks Pauline and Ozay you guys are amazing and we will definitely return next year or may be later this year. I can’t wait.
What an amazing time we had in Kalkan... 5th time back for me & some of my family, but 1st time staying in Kalkan Retreat Villa, but hopefully will not be the last. The villa is absolutely perfect in every way & no complaints at all from us.. The weather was quite changeable when we was there but we had no problem staying in the villa as it is so lovely to wile away the time in.. The heated pool made all the difference as well as was very welcomed at times during our stay..
Pauline (the owner) is very quick to answer any questions you have prior to the holiday & extremely helpful & accommodating..
Hope to be back again real soon x
What an fantastic place and what a lovely holiday we had. When we arrived we had a personal tour from the property management and they'd thoughtfully stocked the fridge with some essentials which made for a very relaxing start. The villa is stunning, when you walk in you are greeted by a lovely dropped lounge and a big fully equipped kitchen. Just out from the lounge is a terrace with a BBQ and an outdoor eating area and of course the pool which we spent half our time in! The bedrooms are all massive with ensuites and the cleaners come every day to give the place it a quick once over so the villa stays very clean. For me, the best bit is the roof, we used to go up there every evening to have a drink and watch the sun go down before heading out for dinner, it has fantastic views of the bay and a very comfortable seating area! It was my first time in Kalkan and I was shocked how well geared up for tourists it is, we walked down the hill into town most days and nights but taxis were very easy to come by when we were full of shopping or food and wine! They were also cheap (about £2.50 from the town to the villa). Nearly all the people running the bars and restaurants spoke English and were very friendly which was another thing that just made everything very easy. We also took a boat out whilst in Kalkan which was a great activity if you fancied getting out of town for a day. We had a great time and would definitely recommend the Kalkan Retreat, despite the fact it's an amazing property it's just so well managed by the local team they have that it means you can really relax right from the minute you get there.
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!
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 !!
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
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!
