Set high on the hillside above Kalkan’s celebrated waterfront, Villa Venus is an extremely well-appointed four-bedroom house with magnificent panoramic views across the bay. The villa terraces are comfortably furnished, with a number of inviting options for relaxed lounging in either sun or shade and guests here enjoy the luxury of not just one, but two inviting pools. Ample entertaining space ensures dining in this remarkable, elevated spot always feels like a special occasion and when you’d rather someone else took care of the details, we are happy to arrange a private chef. Booked in combination with neighbouring Villa Mars there is also a wonderful opportunity for large groups to travel together.
The villa interiors are spacious, stylish and well-designed, offering every modern luxury and convenience, from the striking state-of-the-art kitchen to the beautifully fitted bathrooms. All the light and airy bedrooms at Villa Venus are en-suite and the three upstairs bedrooms also benefit from private balconies, perfect for stepping out in the morning to drink in the dazzling views.
Within easy walking distance of Kalkan’s vibrant centre and the host of upmarket beach clubs dotted around the bay, Villa Venus has everything you might wish for in this cosmopolitan and sophisticated harbour town. The choice of restaurants and quality of food here is exceptional and as the call to prayer echoes across the bay, and the lights of the rooftop restaurants begin to sparkle in the soft evening light, it is hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a candlelit dinner. A little further afield Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast is yours to explore and if you’re after a little splendid isolation, nearby Patara beach is stunning, with seven miles of uninterrupted sand to roam at will.

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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
