Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas
If you are looking for peace and tranquillity Villa Lalam in the green hills of the luxury holiday destination of Kalkan, Turkey, is the place for you. This traditional stone-built villa has three en-suite bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to six guests, perfect for a family holiday. Set in its own grounds built over two terraces into the sloping hill, this unique villa has all of the accommodation on the same floor, with one of the bedrooms having its own separate access. Villa Lalam comes with its own private parking spaces, and complimentary Wi-Fi and air-conditioning throughout. The furnishing and décor are contemporary, using a predominantly neutral colour palette colour, with splashes of sunshine yellow, within its walls and outside space you will find an oasis of calm and seclusion.
Enter the villa at ground floor level to discover a world of light and airy, vaulted ceiling, open plan living. The well-equipped modern black and white kitchen has an American style family-size fridge-freezer, oven and hob, microwave and water-cooler, as well as the must-have classic coffee maker, and a Turkish coffee machine for those who like their caffeine rich and thick. The kitchen has an island surrounded by bar stools, the perfect place to enjoy a family breakfast before a day’s sunbathing. The master bedroom is also on the ground floor, with a double bed, an en-suite shower room, and best of all stunning sea views, and access to a furnished balcony on which to enjoy them. The second bedroom has two twin beds, which can be made into a double, wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and spectacular sea views. The third bedroom can be accessed separately from the house, and has a double bed, an en-suite shower room, and panoramic views. A separate guest cloakroom completes the living space.
The outdoor space is cleverly divided over two separate terraces, beautifully built into the hillside, both commanding wonderful vistas. The upper terrace can be accessed from the ground floor and is home to a fabulously furnished dining and seating area, classic wicker work chairs with comfortable cushions, and a stone-work built-in barbeque to sizzle some local cuisine and dine under the stars. Take the stone steps down to the pool terrace where you will find a simply stunning step entry swimming pool, surrounded by comfortable cushioned loungers, and straw parasols to keep you shaded in the summer’s sun.
* Please kindly note that Villa Lalam does not accept children aged 8 and under due to the hillside location.
Villa Lalam is nestled in the hills and olive groves of Kalkan overlooking the harbour, with panoramic views over the aptly named Turquoise Coast 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. On the way into town 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 a short drive 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.
