Myself, my husband, daughter, her boyfriend and our 12 year old son stayed at Villa Emily for 2 weeks in July. So glad we chose villa Emily - amazing contemporary villa - comfy beds, well equipped, fantastic roof terrace overlooking Kalkan. The sheets were changed & villa cleaned well, towel changes were more regular. The only downside would be for someone with mobility issues as the villa was over 4 floors but for our family it was perfect. If I had one crib it was that the pool didnt have a shallow end - again not an issue for us as we all swim. I't was a pleasant 15 minute walk to the harbour (I specifically tried to book a villa that wasn't miles away from the harbour & old town & this was perfect) Kalkan is very hilly & you can't avoid hills in the old town but again as we pottered around the shops & into bars (I'd recommend Black & Gold & Botanic Garden) & restaurants the hills were manageable. We took a taxi back to the villa from the main taxi rank 10 TL (£2.50) We booked the villa via Truffle Properties & after booking private villas for years I can safely say they are an excellent, professional & extremely helpful company to deal with - Mel & Nigel arranged the transfers - the vehicles were fairly new & the drivers safe. Mel also arranged a taxi to & from Patara beach a couple of days. We usually don't go back to the same place twice but we will definitely visit Kalkan again - it was great for our family of different ages & requirements - we will also book via Truffle & stay in Villa Emily. 10 out of 10 - a fantastic time ...

Don't know where to start! Literally the best holiday I've had in years. Always heard mixed reviews about turkey but kalkan is the one of the nicest resorts I've ever had the pleasure of staying in.
The weather was superb, the amount of activities to do were overwhelming from boat trips/ snorkelling to quad biking, fun for all ages! The food was incredibly reasonable and superb quality at every restauraunt we ate it, with a particular highlight being the steak at kalamaki on the last night, which is a rooftop restaraunt overlooking the whole resort.
Villa Emily was the perfect place to stay; it was close enough to local Amenities to mean there was no need for a car but not right in the thick of it that we felt we were overlooked. The standard of the villa is incredible, with a fabulous pool area and incredible ocean views from all four floors. I would 100% recommend kalkan to anyone and there really is no better place to stay than villa Emily
The best holiday I've had in a long time. Kalkan is beautiful, the locals are so friendly and the restaurants are all amazing with gorgeous food complemented with breath taking views of the harbour.
Villa Emily is in a prime location for the town and the beach but just far enough away so that your just out of the way from all the hustle and bustle. The views every morning from the bed i stayed in were just unbelievable.
The villa has an amazing pool area which gets sun all throughout the day and the pool is a prefect size but for me the best feature of the villa was in the evening coming back, pouring a nice glass of red and going to the best view of Kalkan on the roof of the villa with lovely big sofas and the view i cant even explain, you'd have to experience it for yourself.
Truly the best holiday I've been on. A beautiful place to stay too complement a gorgeous town with plenty of sun and great value for money.
