We have just returned from one of the most memorable holidays ever at the Villa Sea Breeze in Kalkan. The moment we walked up the steps towards the entrance we were thrilled by this wonderful villa. From the highest quality furniture and fittings, to the polished marble floors, the luxurious showers and wet room, the infinity pool, Jacuzzi, games room, outdoor dining and bar, spectacular views. The list goes on. Every area of this gorgeous home from home continued to surprise and delight us.
Everything had been thought of to make our holiday perfect. Little touches like UK plug adaptors and insect repellent were on hand. Not significant on their own but an indication of the thought and care that has gone into designing and fitting out this amazing villa. Even beach towels and bags were there for our use. The villa manager Ramazan was on hand to answer any questions we had or to give us advice on where to eat or visit. For one evening we engaged Kazim, the owner of Chefs At Home Kalkan, who cooked the most amazing, genuine Turkish food for us. He visited us the day before to discuss menu and likes or dislikes. Be warned though, he does not do small! http://www.chefsathomekalkan.com/
I have been visiting Turkey since 1986 and lived there for several years so my expectations of the building were of the usual Turkish standard. OK but not outstanding. No longer. This villa is by far the most impressive I have ever seen in Turkey. Trip advisor only goes up to 5 stars. That’s not high enough. Go there before it’s booked up!
Our holiday at this luxurious villa was everything we could have wished for and more, we could easily, (and very happily), have stayed a lot longer. From the careful thought that has clearly been given to ensure we had everything we needed, either at the villa or for beach trips and days out, to the lovely pool that we spent most of our time in. I came with 2 children aged 5 and 6 and they had a wonderful time, the jacuzzi was perfect for them to relax in safely and the infinity pool was great for their swimming lessons!! They could both swim by the end of our stay. There was plenty of room any many things to do. We are already planning our return trip for next year. It was brilliant.
This villa is amazing it is so fresh and modern with beautiful views. It is very clean and the decor is brilliant. The town is very quirky with lots of lovely shops and restaurants. I would defiantly recommend Trio. I would defiantly stay here again would recommend it to anyone
Villa Sea Breeze is just the most gorgeous, sumptuous villa I have ever stayed in. The furniture, soft furnishing and decorations are all high end and all look really plush. You can tell that a lot of thought must have gone into the design. The bathrobes were a lovely touch and the luxury bathroom products made me feel really spoilt there. The beds are very comfy (I normally have problems sleeping in new beds, but not there) and we even had feather pillows to sink into at night. And talk about beds – what an amazing treat to wake up to those fabulous views! The views are fab from all the beds, but next time I go I will fight for the master bedroom – in there you can wake up, open your eyes and be faced with a view truly to die for. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi looked extremely tempting but when we went in February it was too cold for swimming so I can’t wait to try them out when I go back later this year. The villa is a large one with plenty of seating, plenty of crockery, cutlery and pans so we were never short of anything we needed. There was a lot to keep us entertained during our nights in with games tables, board games and TV’s in 3 of the bedrooms plus the one in the lounge. (One is a 3D TV). All have Apple TV and I hadn’t realised how much you can do with Apple TV linked to an i-pad! The wi-fi works well throughout the villa so we were able to keep in touch when we wanted. The management team fell over themselves to help at every opportunity and Ramazan reliably brought us fresh bread each morning for breakfast. The stunning views from the villa are as a result of it being up a steep hill high above the village. The walk down to the shops and harbour is an enjoyable 10 minute one, but we opted for a taxi back each time. The taxis are reasonable (TL14 when we were there) and I would think that in the summer heat it would be even more necessary. Kalkan village is a cute place with loads of restaurants and places to sit and while away some time people watching. The beach in Kalkan is a pebble one so we went to Patara beach just down the road (I think it was about 10 minutes by car) and found that it was miles and miles of quite unspoilt sand and sea with only us on it. I will be interested to see what it is like in the busier months, but I was told by the locals that it is still a relatively quiet beach even then. We went to stay in Villa Sea Breeze in February for two weeks. We weren’t expecting much in the way of sun but actually had the most beautiful weather one week and a few days of rain the next. Even then it was relatively warm, though, and bright. Prior to going, the owners of the villa, Suzanne and Jon, were very attentive to all my questions and very accurate and honest in their replies, so thanks for your help guys! We had a brilliant time there and can’t wait to go back in the summer.
