Wow - this is by far the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in and my nicest ever beach holiday. A small, friendly, quirky, pretty little bohemian place with idyllic views, friendly staff, WONDERFUL food and an all round chilled and happy atmosphere. We stayed in the deluxe timber room - Mimosa - which has so much personality and absolutely panoramic views - perfect for honeymooners and absolutely worth an upgrade for anyone looking for an unforgettable trip. PLEASE book this room, you won't regret it. The location was perfect for us too, close enough to the centre of Kalkan which had a huge choice of lovely restaurants (not one bad meal) but didn't feel too over-run with Brits, and at the same time, the hotel itself felt fairly secluded. On some days we even had the pool and small timber bar entirely to ourselves with what felt like private service. Kalkan is a pretty little town and if you want culture, history, sights and beaches, this place is for you. If you're looking for somewhere lively and want entertainment, it's not. It's pleasantly bustling with atmosphere but not spoiled. The near-by Kaputas beach is one of the nicest I've ever seen (10 min drive) and even the little man-made beaches a short walk from the hotel are beautiful, with clear waters and dramatic scenery. There was just so much wonderful stuff to do. We went in late September and virtually had the ancient ruins we visited all to ourselves - breathtaking! If you're just looking for a restaurant in Kalkan, then it may be worth making the trip to this side of town for Fidanka too, it's very different to what's being offered elsewhere, small, isolated, quiet and romantic with the nicest food we tried all week and great music and ambiance. I really can't recommend Fidanka House highly enough. I'm amazed it isn't ranked number 1 on Trip Adviser and I don't even think the pictures do it justice. It felt like home. I didn't ever want to leave and will now recommend it to everyone I know.... although a part of me wishes I could keep this place our little secret.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fidanka, with its fauna, trees, beautiful gardens and antique furnishings, is a Mediterranean fairytale brought to life by a family from İstanbul who loves nature, art, gourmet food and locales with soul. Fidanka means female sapling in Bulgarian, and grows even more beautiful year after year with our love and the happiness of our guests. We have collected hundreds of objects and fauna throughout the years all over Turkey and the world, not because we think of them as decorations, but because we couldn’t bear to be without them. Toys from our childhood, mementos from our families, wooden ceilings, timber doors, window frames - some from nearby villages, some from the other side of the world, all combine to make Fidanka what it is. Fidanka offers five types of beautiful rooms each with immense terraces opening to breathtaking sea views. We used antique furnishings in all rooms, especially in the Timber Rooms. ... more less
