"We had a fantastic time in Villa Lycia. In fact, for some of us, this has been our 6th visit to Turkey and this holiday was by far the best! Kalkan is a beautiful village and the people are great very, very friendly. We ate out every night and each time the meals were superb. We would strongly recommend sampling the cuisine of the Aubergine restaurant the steaks were wonderful. Also, the Ottoman House restaurant was very good with lots of traditional food to choose from.A boat trip is also a must, especially when you can rent your own private boat for as little as £100.If you have time, rent a car and take a trip into the mountains the scenery is worth the drive.All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider a return trip!" - Natasha, Paul, Martin, Jessica, Robert, Wendy, Matthew & Julia (Swindon & Bristol UK and Malta) 27th June 2005

Today's Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a few good quality low-rise hotels, a selection of privately owned holiday villas and a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars.
The village shops stay open 'til around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, carpets and clothing. The narrow streets of the old town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea intermingled with shops and terrace-topped restaurants. These streets twist down to the harbour, which is the focus of the village and here you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the world go by or by looking at the array of elegant 'gulets'. During the day, you can make use of one of the many 'beach clubs', visit the local market, engage in some of the local sporting activities (such as water-skiing, parascending, scuba diving, trekking etc), take a trip to one of the historical sites, drive a jeep up into the mountains, cruise on a gulet or simply relax by your pool.
Unlike some other Turkish coastal resorts, Kalkan's main economy derives from tourism and consequently, its inhabitants put much effort and pride into the town's historic preservation. As a result of very strict building regulations and the efforts of the Kalkan Foundation, the town has retained its charm and special ambience. The wonderful hospitality of the Kalkan people is another reason why the first-time visitor invariably returns time after time. Travel Details Taxi / Dolmus (Local bus)
