If you’re looking for plenty of bang for your holiday buck then Kalkan has always been the smart choice. Our villas here offer outstanding quality and value compared to many of the Greek or Balearic Islands, and the town itself is a wonderful holiday experience with its signature beach clubs and rooftop restaurants. Located at the less developed western end of Kalamar Bay, Thalassa is Kalkan luxury living at its finest, combining supremely stylish interiors with direct sea access at the end of the garden.

Thalassa has four elegant bedrooms, giving lots of space for a family group. All the comforts of home are here, from the flat-screen smart TV to the sleek designer kitchen and palatial bathrooms. The outdoor areas are equally generous, with quality loungers around a (heatable)12-metre pool, table tennis, a barbecue terrace and a shady pergola where you can retreat with your favorite drink and contemplate the mesmerizing views across the bay.

The pool is irresistible, but for sea lovers, the water’s edge lies temptingly close. Follow the little path down through the grounds and you’ll come to a cluster of beach platforms, each with its own loungers, shade and ladder into the sparkling turquoise sea. It’s a beautifully privileged spot at any hour, lapped by the gentle ebb and flow of the waves that have caressed these shores since time began. The joy of this villa is that with a pool in the garden and the sea on the doorstep there’s really no need to leave your luxury home-from-home, but for a change of scene, Kalkan town is a short drive or taxi ride away.

Thalassa is one of three properties on this exceptional site, and may be booked together with Poseidon for an extra-large group. Each villa is well screened for privacy around its own pool and terrace area, and each has its own dedicated section of beach platform. 

Looking for 10 nights..? Why not add a 3-night stay in a boutique hotel to your villa holiday. To find out more, view our 10-night holidays in Turkey.

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.

We had a great holiday in Thalassa! The villa worked really well for us. Plenty of space, plenty of shade and well equipped. The private access to the sea was the major benefit! Getting into town and Islamlar was easy with local taxis and we were pleased we didn’t hire a car. The boat trip and Turkish bath, which came with the trip, were really good and worthwhile. Zeze was superb and helped us figure out what to do as well as sorting out our lost luggage!

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.

Set against a breathtaking mountain backdrop, Kalkan sits on Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast: a cosmopolitan, vibrant resort perfect for exploring the timeless beauty of ancient Lycia's pine-clad shores. The pretty town centre is a treasure trove of narrow streets, whitewashed Ottoman Greek houses and inviting boutiques. It's also famous for its harbourside lounge bars and rooftop restaurants serving a variety of delicious food with impeccable service.
