NEW FOR 2020


With its wooden balconies, colourful rugs and stone fireplace, Gogen Evi offers a respectful hat-tip to Kalkan’s traditional Ottoman style, upgraded for 21st century guests to include four en suite bedrooms and an infinity swimming pool. The views are spectacular, the mood is relaxed and the location is one of the best in town, ideal for friends or a family with older teenagers who’ll appreciate the freedom to head into Kalkan without having to take a taxi.

The house sits on a hill just a 10-minute stroll from Kalkan harbour, your departure point for numerous boat trips and excursions, and the heart of the town’s surprisingly sophisticated bar and restaurant scene. Wander away from the sea and you’ll discover a maze of winding streets crammed with coffee shops, tea houses and smart boutiques where you can pick up an extra holiday bikini, some silver jewellery or just browse at leisure and soak up the vibrant old town atmosphere. With everything accessible on foot, Gogen Evi is ideal for reluctant holiday drivers, and the perfect base to enjoy all of Kalkan’s many charms.

As a thank you for booking… Choose a holiday in Kalkan and we’ll be delighted to include a complimentary Turkish bath (hamam) at the Kalkan Regency Hotel spa, along with an all-day excursion on the hotel’s traditional gület boat, Poseidon, with a delicious lunch included.

Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
