We have just returned from a family holiday for a joint Birthday and wedding anniversary celebrations. The Villa is superb , with so much space and spectacular views. Words cannot really describe how wonderful this place is - its a wow from the minute you walk in - prepare to be spoilt. Kadir and his Wife looked after us throughout the holiday , we also had Kazim cook for us which was an amazing and utterly delicious Turkish banquet. Kalkan is a slice of heaven and this Villa allows you to soak up and enjoy every moment in luxury. Our thanks to Joanna for making this holiday so special and sorting all of our needs to perfection.
This is my third visit to this beautiful villa and it still wows me every time. This year the occasion was my daughters Wedding and last year my other daughters 21st. Each year the owners add a little something to the villa making it even more perfect, this year a lovely new outdoor bar area and seating in the pool. I most not forget to mention Kadir and his wife who make the most enchanting Turkish breakfasts for us, enjoyed in the outdoor dining area. Can't wait for my next visit.........
I had my wedding here
It's an amazing villa no words can describe the views this villa has!
There is everything you need in the villa from suncream-sun glasses.
Joe is lovely and makes sure everything is perfect for your arrival.
Couldn't off asked for a better location for my wedding
I will be returning next year
This was our fourth year staying in Kalkan and the third time we have stayed at one of Joanna's villas. We are a family of 7, including 4 teenagers. Joanna really goes the extra mile in making your stay a memorable one. Nothing is too much trouble and she is more than happy to book anything or your behalf or make suggestions on anything from restaurants to excursions. There is a very detailed villa manual which tells you everything you need to know about Kalkan and more. Villa Amycha is a truly luxurious villa and by far the best villa we have ever stayed in. The facilities are superb with something for everyone from the outside bar and infinity pool to the X box, table tennis, pool and air hockey. We were looked after by Gadir and Ayfer who between them keep the villa spotlessly clean and bought us fresh bread every morning. Kalkan is a very special place which is why people return year after year. There are many gorgeous roof top and harbour restaurants to choose from at very reasonable prices and not a KFC or MacDonalds in sight. We were very lucky to have Chef Kazim cook for us again this year and that evening was certainly one of the many highlights of our holiday. We were also looked after again by Ayhan the taxi driver who took us everywhere. If you are lucky enough to be able to stay here you will have a truly amazing holiday and if it's already booked take a look at Villa Jaysea which is Joanna's other villa a few doors along. We will certainly be holidaying in Kalkan again next summer and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
photos. We visited in the May half term and were after a relaxing week away. It couldn't have been a better result. We arrived late, to be met by Tarik and Gadir who grabbed our bags and showed us around. They had already got the shopping in and were obviously proud and pleased to see the family's reaction to the villa.
The standard of decor and the attention to detail is phenomenal. Joanna obviously runs a tight ship. She is the most organised and efficient villa owner I've dealt with and was genuinely interested in making the visit a special one. Everything is immaculate. And it's the little things that make a difference, such as decent soap and shampoo, aircon, hairdryers, a water cooler, decent wifi, a heated pool, the best sun beds I've ever been on, a pool table, table tennis and air hockey, the villa being cleaned every day, bread delivered every day and the most amazing breakfast prepared by Gadir and Ayfer every morning.
We had to tell the kids that they mustn't get used to this kind of villa if we went anywhere else, as we have stayed in many but nothing like this.
Kalkan has now become our favourite European place to visit. We had 2 great days at the gorgeous local beaches, had some delicious meals down by the port and on the rooftops of some lovely buildings. We visited the trout farms and we enjoyed just getting out for a drive into the hills or along the coast.
Since home, we've already looked at flights in October and for next year. The reason? Kalkan is different and has a great atmosphere. And if we came back, there's only 1 villa we'll be enquiringly about first.
One of the great memorable journey with the lovely and sedative villa in kalkan.
The heated pool was helped children's to really enjoying in the little bit cold weather of April's. The villa was so peaceful and quite.
we've just returned from our 2 week stay at villa Amycha, this being our third visit to Kalkan in a row.
We stayed at villa Jaysea 2 years ago and that was fabulous, so when Joanna told my wife about villa Amycha, we knew we would be in for a real treat. Everything was arranged for us i.e transfers from the airport, maid/cleaner 7 days per week and an extremely helpful man who looked after the pool, brought us fresh bread every day and much more, he was there to help us whenever we needed him- even when we locked ourselves out!!!.
The quality of the villa is unbelieveable, the facilities were amazing and the sheer size and space is remarkable- there were 10 adults and a baby and we never once felt cramped or claustrophobic. Its a fifteen minute walk down the hill to the town which full of wonderful estaurants and bars. Everyone was so friendly especially the taxi drivers. Its about 10 lira in a taxi from the villa into town (not even £3). Again we used another recommendation from Joanna, Ian who was always availalble whenever we called him. This was a great help when the younger ones went out at night because we knew they would get back safely.
We would thoroughly recommend the boat trip with Captain Abdi, again the owners gave us all the details.
So much to recommend about this villa, Kalkan and the owners, so many perfect memories from an amazing holiday. We would love to come back.
