Spotblue.com is delighted to offer this traditional Ottoman style house with every comfort one could wish for, yet with a genuine sense of character and tradition, in an astonishing mountainside location in the friendly village of Islamlar in Kalkan.
What is the area like?
Kalkan is a typical Mediterranean place with traditional seaside houses, covered with wooden shutters and pink bougainvillea tumbling down white washed walls. Coastal restaurants promote the concept of Mediterranean dining and due to the hillside leading away from the beach; most restaurants provide a romantic, rooftop-dining experience with slow music and tasty cuisine, while the sun slowly sets on the horizon.
Small boutique shops, modern restaurants, and traditional bars, line both sides of the cobbled streets and at the entrance to the resort is an average sized bus station, with transport to neighbouring towns and bigger bus stations, that operate transport to other destinations within Turkey.
Thanks to the influx of expats, the current population is approximately 3,500 people, but during summer, this increases because of tourism. All facilities and amenities exist within the town, including doctors, post offices, banks, and supermarkets and for serious medical attention, expats use the private hospital based in nearby Fethiye. Other activities and places of interest which you can enjoy are diving, snorkelling, beach clubs, historical sites, water sports, and Paragliding, plus spa treatments.
Where is the villa?
This property is located in the village of Islamlar, which is set in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains, yet close to local restaurants, and just 15 minutes by car from Kalkan centre and the coast.
This incredibly beautiful area offers a compelling combination of a peaceful, unspoilt location with breathtaking views and the convenience of being close to Kalkan and Patara. Islamlar village provides an insight into beautiful rural Turkish life which has remained unchanged for many years. Full of olive groves and vineyards and where the flour for the bakery is still ground using an old water-powered millstone.
The area has several trout farm restaurants where they serve simple, authentic Turkish food, bursting with flavour. All ingredients are locally grown and organic. Small waterfalls, springs and mountain streams provide constant fresh water, giving natural irrigation and feeding the trout pools that supply the local restaurants. Prices are lower than at the tourist resorts and there are wonderful views down the valley to the sea. Notably, Islamlar is several degrees centigrade cooler than at sea level, and Kalkan locals use the restaurants as respite from the warmest summer days.
What is the villa like?
This house has been built in Ottoman-style and exudes character from its wooden floors and intricately carved balcony to the strewn artefacts that are dotted around.
The stylish interior is traditionally furnished to a high level and combines authentic, charm – quality rugs and ceramics – without compromising on comfort. It has a rich sense of academia courtesy of its owners who created the retreat for themselves to escape the hustle and the bustle of city life.
If you can tear yourself away from the utter peace and tranquillity the delights of Kalkan then the dramatic mountain landscapes unfold in the other direction are just 15 minutes away.
