Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas
Villa Asli is the ideal holiday home for a large family or friends’ gathering. This classic white, glass, and chrome three-storey villa is located in the desirable destination of Kalkan, situated on the Mediterranean Turquoise Coast. With four spacious bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, Villa Asli can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. The designers have cleverly contrasted fresh white interior decor, with rainbow-coloured outdoor furnishings. Floor to ceiling glass windows flood the villa with natural daylight, and a sense of privacy is created by the surrounding properties. Local beach clubs are within walking distance, not to mention cafes, bars, restaurants, and local shops and supermarkets for everything you will need during your stay.
Enter the villa at ground floor level to discover a world of open-plan living. The seating area has a large comfy L-shaped soft white sofa, two matching armchairs, and a pouffe, facing a satellite channel flat screen LCD television, with handy coffee and side tables. There is a dining area with a wooden table to seat six and a table for two, great for indoor entertaining. An adjacent white family sized kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you will need to cook the local cuisine during your stay. If you are feeling flush, you can request a chef to come in and cook for you, now that really is a holiday treat.
Take the marble staircase to the first floor where you will find two spacious bedrooms. The first has a king size bed, double mirrored wardrobes, a vanity table, and an en-suite modern marble shower room with wash basin and WC. The second bedroom is a twin room, with wardrobes, dressing table and en-suite bathrooms. Both bedrooms share a balcony that extends the width of the villa, with their own separate table and chairs. The second floor has two further fully furnished en-suite bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two twin beds, and a baby play pen. There is a large glass-surround balcony with a lounge seating area, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail as the sun sets.
The pool terrace can be accessed through the floor to ceiling glass doors from the living area. The ladder entry swimming pool invites you to jump in for a few lengths before breakfast. Eight brightly coloured sun loungers surround the pool. A matching eight seater dining table and free-standing barbeque is the ideal hot spot for eating alfresco under the stars.
Villa Asli is located in the smart part of the town of Kalkan, situated on the Turquoise Coast, the jewel of the Mediterranean Sea. The town of Kalkan is 125 kilometres from Dalaman Airport, a scenic one and a half hour journey through the Turkish countryside and Taurus mountains. Originally a Greek enclave called Kalamaki, Ottoman and Hellenic influences can be found in the winding streets of the old town, full of traditional white houses and home to a plethora of restaurants, cafes and bars, and souvenir shops full of goodies you’ll want to take home. From the villa it is a short walk into town, where there’s lots of shops, supermarkets, and banks, and a local Thursday market, that can provide all the provisions for a happy holiday. Many of Kalkan’s best beach clubs are within walking distance of the villa, with bathing platforms, sea views, swimming pools, and waiter service, there’s no need to leave your sun lounger all day. No stay in Kalkan is complete without a boat trip from the harbour, whether it’s a shared one with family and friends or you charter your own gulet, a day out at sea with your favourite captain and crew, is one to treasure. All aboard for a day of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays, enjoy a meal of local homecooked meze, take afternoon tea, and then sail back to harbour cocktail in hand to watch the sunset.
For the beach bunnies, Kalkan has its own pebble beach with easy access into the sea. Travel further afield to the stunning Kaputas Beach set in a natural gorge, or take a trip to Patara, where you will find twenty kilometres of unspoilt golden sands and a protected area for the hatching turtles. Kalkan is home to a number of beach clubs along the length/ of its coastline, have some fun in the sun at family-friendly resorts offering water sports and swimming pools, or relax and unwind at exclusive luxury destinations and be waited on hand and foot whilst enjoying alfresco spa treatments. For those with itchy feet the Lycian Way walking trail cuts through Kalkan. Follow in the footsteps of thousands of years of history, as you trek the trail taking you through major archaeological sites, local villages, dramatic coastlines, and the areas’ flora and fauna. Take a short journey to the town of Kinik, where you can step back in time to the Lycian city of Xanthos.
Follow the D400 to Fethiye, and discover the historical sites of Patara, Letoon, Tlos, and Pinara, where you can see the ancient ruins, amphitheatres and temples with Lycian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine influences. The harbour town of Fethiye is also full of ancient sites worth seeing, as well as a foodie-heaven fish market, and home to some seriously good designer labels and fabulous jewellery shopping. Whilst the nearer town of Kas is just twenty-five kilometres away, and worth the journey alone along one of the world’s most stunning and dramatic coastlines. Walk through the harbour to the cobbled streets full of Ottoman architecture and overhanging balconies festooned with pastel coloured bougainvillaea, barter for unique handmade and antique goods in its many shops, and make memories dining in one of the traditional restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine with mesmerising sea views. And if you’re feeling intercontinental hop on the twenty-minute ferry from Kas to the Greek island of Meis, where you can explore the Blue Cave and dine by the water’s edge.
