Villa Seftali Turkey, Kalkan

 


The historic town of Kalkan is an enchanting place  and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's gorgeous Lycian coast.  With the absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoilt haven of lush nature, brilliant crystal clear seas, historic architecture ancient history and warm Turkish hospitality.

Once a simple fishing village, today's Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a few good quality low-rise hotels and apartments and a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights together with stylish and atmospheric bars.

The narrow streets twist down to the harbour, which is the focus of the town and here you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the world go by.

During the day, you can make use of one of the many "beach clubs", engage in sporting activities such as water skiing, para-scendng and scuba diving, take a trip to one of the magnificent historical sights, drive a jeep up into the mountains or simply relax by the pool.

The famous 18km long Patara beach is only 20 minutes away and Kas is 30 minutes away.

Kalkan curls snugly around an ancient harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus mountains. The town overlooks a beautiful bay in which islands seem to magically  float upon a shimmering sea.
