We had the privilege of being hosted at Kleo Cottages 12-19 July this year. We were a group of 10 ranging in ages from 2 to 94, a whole family with four generations. The 2 houses we rented had everything you could wish for and need for all generations involved. We arrived late at night. Breakfast the first day was already in the refrigerator. Daily cleaning of the houses, friendly and very helpful personnel and wonderful owners who were present there daily to see to the needs of their guests. The houses in Kleo cottages are in a wonderful garden which provides shade for those who wished to avoid the hot sun. The establishment has very well kept pools, one for the minors and one deep. The garden itself was a beautiful "botanical garden". It had peaches, apples, various citrus fruits, vines, pomegranate and various types of berries. It also had the biggest rosemary bush I have seen. The children could walk around picking berries and apples and eating them. It was a very relaxing experience. I strongly recommend rental cars for those who wish to visit the establishment. Kalkan is still very unexploited compared to the some of the other places in the Turkish Turqouise Coast and it is on the hillsides that you find most of the residential facilities. There is a restaurant, Bodamya, 100 meters from Kleo Cottages which is very nice to visit especially if you have children with you. The restaurant has a big garden with playground, fish ponds, etc. The restaurant does not keep anything ready made, they make everything from scratch. In Kalkan there are a number of restaurants and bars which all serve good food. Do try local specialties and local Turkish food. Most restaurants also offer take-away food and are very generous with their portions. There are a number of beaches around Kalkan and one in the middle of the town. There are also restaurants offering bathing possibilities at an affordable price but they do not have sand/pebble beaches; they offer stairs directly into the water and serve food and drinks also in the sunning and bathing area. I recommend the Kalkan official website for all activities and sports that are available. It is usually hot beside the sea so Kleo Cottages at the hillside really was our paradise during the whole stay. Highly recommended for those who wish to have a relaxing vacation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kleo Cottages consists of a group of six completely detached two, three and four-bedroom country cottage-style spacious villas all of which have beautiful views across the mountainside and some out to sea. They are set in natural gardens, to the side of a mountain stream, and they share a communal pool hidden in the centre of the gardens. The setting perfectly reflects the relaxed pace of life in the mountains, where your peace is most likely to be disturbed by the ringing bells of a passing goat herd. The cottages retain a ‘village-style’ of architecture, and blend beautifully with the environment. Each cottage is extremely spacious and comfortable and is set out over two or three storeys, providing the feel of a house. Breakfast is served if guests needed.
