Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Taurus Mountains in ancient Lycia, lies the picturesque harbour village of Kalkan.
Proud of its preserved heritage at the heart of this historic coastline, and at ease with its gently cosmopolitan ambience, Kalkan welcomes the appreciative traveller with holidays that offer the best of both worlds: authenticity and antiquity, married with choice and comfort – plus the timeless beauty of Lycia's pine-clad shores.
A short stroll from the boutique hotels in Kalkan is Old Kalkan's narrow, cobbled streets: whitewashed Ottoman houses nestle up against artisan workshops and çay houses, where one can bargain for wares and sip black tea in the shadow of the ancient wooden balconies.
A holiday in Kalkan - enjoying the best of the Lycian coast
Harbourside, as the boats return and the night draws in, settle in a lokanda with a glass of rakı and discover some of Turkey's finest authentic cuisine. Or, by candlelight, enjoy the commanding views from one of the red-tiled rooftop restaurants, enveloped by the scent of jasmine and thyme.
Luxury Kalkan holidays also provide ample opportunities for excursions: an abundance of historic sites or the picture postcard beaches of Patara and Kaputaş. Or perhaps Kekova island, with its mysterious sunken ruins, crystal clear through waters refreshed from the mountains beyond – all comfortably reached and enjoyed in a day from villas in Kalkan.
