A hidden Gem
Villa Gemma exceeded our expectations on all levels, the pictures really don’t do it justice, the views are incredible and the villa, pool and outside area is just perfect ! also that really is a great barbeque, super hot and perfect for a family of our size ! Ali & Zeynip the onsite team are both lovely people and looked after us perfectly, they went above and beyond our expectations even delivering fresh bread every morning ! We loved Kalkan, what a hidden gem with loads of great restaurants and shops and bars, there is nothing not to like about the whole experience. We had a great day out on Whisper 3 with Captain Ali and Ali his crewman and his mother who cooked the most delicious lunch not returning until 7:30pm as we had moored for early evening drinks which went on a little longer than expected !! All in all we had the most amazing holiday in the most wonderful place, we will almost certainly return. p.s. Lena the owner is a joy to deal with, fast responses to every question and gave us full information on both the villa and Kalkan. I wholeheartedly suggest that you visit this wonderful villa and Kalkan, you won't be disapointed.

Fantastic villa for a family holiday!
Beautiful villa in a great location. Fantastic views and a short walk from old town restaurants, bars and shops. A spacious, modern villa ideal for a family holiday. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to visit Kalkan with friends or family as the villa is perfect for large groups and conveniently located for nights out in town or evening barbecues by the pool as supermarkets etc. are located nearby. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful, as are the local team. A thoroughly enjoyable two weeks spent in idyllic surroundings.

Fantastic villa with great views and easy access to Kalkan town
Thanks for another wonderful 2 week stay at Gemma Lycia Lena. The villa was as well equipped as 2 years ago and we adored our stay (as did our guests). Ali was very helpful bringing us bread and water every day. You don’t need a car but we rented one this time which allowed us to explore further afield. We went to Xanthos and Le Toon on a cultural excursion one morning (one of our party was a expert in ancient ruins) and on a gulet trip (twice) and wake-boarded with Olga too. Next time we must do an early morning ride along Patara beach! All in all a fabulous holiday.

Great Villa
This villa has amazing views over Kalkan bay and is literally a 10 min walk into town. The villa is extremely well equipped and there is a full support team on hand to sort out any problems. Highly recommend this owner and villa, we have already booked next year.

Stunning villa
Stayed in the villa Gemma Lycia from 14th May for one week . Wow, this villa is stunning. Every room in the villa is immaculate, very tastefully decorated and comes with beautiful views of the harbour, mountains and sea. The outside space was the initial main draw to this villa and it didn't disappoint. Plenty of space around the infinity pool and fantastic shaded area with bar. The villa is situated high up and we knew that before we booked. We sometimes walked into the town but often got a very cheap taxi back up. Kalkan itself is very pretty and there is so much choice when it comes to bars and restaurants. Very people of kalkan we're very friendly and would go out of there way to help you. Would definitely recommend. Only downside was that we weren't there for longer. Hope to book again in a few years time.

Stunning!
Just spent a week on a gulet boat to then spend a week in Villa Gemma Lycia Kalkan…. Wow!! Gorgeous villa with great communication from the owner and a helpful hand from the property manager at the Villa. It was certainly a holiday to remember. The villa was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The outside space and pool are fab and the views across the bay are second to non! A fairly easy walk down into the town (cheap taxis back up) The Turkish people we encountered could not do enough for you and Kalkan is still the prettiest little gem of a place! We would love to return and would not think twice about booking this villa again.

Fantastic Views!
Amazing Villa in Kormuluk. Spacious both inside and out, well positioned with fantastic views across the bay and the harbour. The outside space in this villa is amazing, and the interior is very tasteful with lots of nice homely touches. It has loads of of space to enjoy, across 3 levels. An easy walk into town, for Kalkan pretty much without any steep inclines. Close to two beach clubs if you fancy too. Lena was amazingly accommodating, and was great to deal with - nothing was too much trouble, and we were looked after well by her team while we were at the villa. Great value for money - we will definitely be back to stay.

WOW…..
We couldn’t believe our luck in more ways than one, not only did Turkey come off the red list just in time for our holiday but when we arrived we realised we had managed to book the most fabulous Villa. Villa Gemma Lycia is stunning, very well equipped, so spacious inside and out with magnificent views from the infinity pool and its many terraces. Ali looks after the Villa and pool and as mentioned in many posts before will bring you any provisions on request, he was so accommodating. The Cleaner came in a couple of times a week to do general housekeeping and change beds and always had a chat and a smile. Kalkan centre is only a ten minute walk away either on the top road or via the beach path, there you can enjoy the many top notch restaurants or shop for handbags! A couple of minutes downhill brings you to several beach clubs well worth a visit…. Zest was our favourite. The booking process was made easy from start to finish by Lena the owner who was so helpful during difficult covid times. We eventually got there and feel very lucky that we did.

Totally stunning, best ever stay, care, location & view!
Dear Lena, We had a wonderful holiday - even the scorpion bite (once safe) was an adventure.  The house and the whole setting was perfect with the most amazing view- our group enjoyed taking superb sunset pictures over the infinity pool. Your description is not only accurate but even more special in reality, great size rooms and well spaced. Weather was perfect throughout, lovely town. I can’t recommend it all enough. Locally - we loved Ringo-ing, hiring little boats for snorkelling, hotel Elixir Turkish spas, Tlos ruins, patara beach, Saklikent gorge. So much to do locally. Good ambulance and hospital service!  Easy walk into town though we often took the car and as one had a broken foot - four days before we left for the UK. Yes we don’t have quiet holidays ... Ali was very friendly, cleaners too. Very helpful having the bed change and bins daily, bread and water. You obviously organise this perfectly. In the villa all was good, especially the bedroom space for all with en-suite a, balconies views, fabulous outdoor comfy seating - the bar with fridge was superb. Washing room very useful, air con all great.  SO thank you so much for your excellent service and emergency help when It went wrong when my husband got bitten by the scorpion in the gorges. Totally scary at first but one of the people at the gate handled it very well for us. It was v good for an active holiday with 6 young (15-27old) people plus us a parents. We appreciate were so lucky to be able to do this after our weeks sailing during Covid time without any issues before or after of quarantine. I’m not surprised your villa gets booked so fast even during Covid. Thanks for your understanding cancellation policy which thank fully we never needed. Thanks also for your highly responsive fast emails. We wish you all the best to you any any future holidaymakers - we hope you get to have a good summer next year. All the best, the king crew.

About the neighborhood
The enchanting historic town of Kalkan was once a small fishing village. Today it still retains its charm in spite of increasing sophistication due to its popularity with international visitors. The winding, cobbled streets teem with life at night to the accompanyment of jazz and blues music wafting from bars and restaurants. Kalkan boasts more than a hundred fine restaurants , many set at roof top level, offering excellent Turkish and European cuisine at reasonable prices. There are several good quality food shops including supermarkets, boutiques selling everything from jewellery to pashminas, and all essential daily needs are well catered for. On Thursdays, there is a local market in Kalkan. As you wind down the alleyways you come across the glorious harbour where beautiful traditional gulets and luxury yachts moor up for the evening. Diving, fishing, scuba diving,snorkling, water skiing, caneoing can all be booked from the harbour. You can sole charter a gulet which will take you to secluded bays which are inaccessible by road. There are daily boat trips going out in the morning and back in the afternoon, one of these trips goes around the Kalkan bay area and the islands in the bay. There is a fine, children friendly, pebbled beach in Kalkan. The prestigeous Kömurluk area is located a 10 minute stroll from the Old Town. The area, nestled in an olive grove has the most spectacular views of Kalkan bay, the islands and the harbour. There is a beach club, Palm Beach Club, providing boat taxi services, a restaurant and a bar as well as sunbathing facilities The wonderful friendliness, warmth and hospitality of the peole in Kalkan, together with the incredible beauty of this unspoilt area of Turkey, are probably the main reasons why visitors that have once come to known Kalkan tend to come back, year after year!
