Patara in Turkey has ranked 4th in the TripAdviser top 5 World Destinations for 2010. Patara is known around the world for its 12 mile-long beach which has been made into a national park. The coastline at Patara has been an important piece of ground since Roman and Lycian times, and you can still find dozens of artefacts amidst the ruins that rut out among the sand dunes.
"We have always considered Patara the hidden beauty of the 20th and 21st century, while Dalaman, Alanya, Antalya and Ankara take all the limelight. Nobody knows whether the TripAdviser chart is based on bookings or simly predictions. Either way it seems that 2010 is going to be a year that people will find out about the beauty of Patara," said Julian Walker director of Spot Blue.
Spot Blue are currently marketing properties for sale in Kalkan and Fethiye, including a spectacular 4 bedroom villa for sale in Kalkan: I try not to get too excited about a property based on images, but then sometimes an image really captures the atmosphere and the beauty of the location, and that is what the first image of the Hillside Villas does.
Yes, that is the sea you are looking out over; the sea directly behind the aforementioned 12 mile long beach. A 4 bedroom 4 bathroom villa, 30 minutes from the ocean, and 90 minutes from the airport, for just £399,000 would be fantastic value for money whatever its precise location. The fact that it is in the incredibly beautiful Kalkan, and boasts those views off the terrace makes it simply spectacular.
