As a frequent traveller to various apartments over the years I have to say that this one really did take our breath away.
It was our first visit to Kalkan and this apartment was situated on a hillside with the most amazing views that I have seen.
The owner had considered every attention to detail, from booking and paying our deposit, we received an information pack through the post with maps of the local area and things to do.
There was information that we could download from the owner about how to use every gismo and gadget that the apartment had to offer and let me say there was everything that you need, from pool towels to washing machine and pots and pans if you feel the need to cook.
Yusuf manages the apartment is very hard working and helpful, if you did need him he would be there in minutes.
There are sun beds and a table and chairs on the large balcony where you can dine al fresco and just soak up the sun and watch the fabulous sunsets.
Also a nice sized pool with sun beds if you do fancy a swim to cool off.
About a 10 minute walk away down steep stairs there was a beach club called Palm beach, if you did fancy a change of scenery and a drink, from here if you had spent the day relaxing there was a free water taxi which took you back to the harbour, where you could meander through the cobbled streets and have a gentle stroll back to the apartment at your own pace.
Kalkan is very unique, it is hilly and has very small stone cobbled streets with an abundance of restaurants many that have rooftop tables with views over kalkan rooftops and out to sea.
There are coffee shops, bars and shops selling the local pottery etc.
Why not try a boat trip from the harbour, we went on a boat called Eylul, with captain Ramazan and his wife and their delightful daughter Eylul, the cost was 50 TL each and what a great day, a choice of about 10 to 12 different dishes, later followed by fruit and afternoon tea and cake, there was approximately 12 people but also other boats in the harbour that had smaller parties.
Kalkan is just delightful, the apartment has everything you need and is like home from home and the owner has gone to great lengths to ensure you have a stress free holiday
