For a relaxing holiday away from the stresses of everyday life, escape to charming two-bedroomed Villa Nisan in beautiful Islamlar, Turkey. The villa is set in a stunning location in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains and boasts landscape views stretching through a valley all the way to the sea. Think stylish modern interiors, a large outdoor swimming pool and a spa-like Jacuzzi bathtub.
With a sauna, steam room and gym too, Villa Nisan exudes luxury. The spacious villa is set over two floors with a double bedroom – featuring a furnished balcony and the circular Jacuzzi – and twin bedroom, also with a furnished balcony and those stunning mountain views. The décor is modern in style with white and creamy interiors and playful pops of colour in the soft furnishings.
From the fully-equipped open-plan living, kitchen and dining room you can directly access the pool terrace where the large swimming pool steals the show. The surrounding terrace has a day bed, sun loungers, cushioned chairs and a coffee table so you while away the afternoon in comfort. There’s also a shaded area with table and chairs and barbeque for effortless al-fresco dining.
With its peaceful and quiet setting, Villa Nisan is an ideal mountain retreat to relax and enjoy the uninterrupted company of friends and family, while soaking up the spectacular views and surrounding nature. For a home-from-home experience, the villa is fully air-conditioned and comes with chic Chesterfield-style sofas, an LED television and a DVD player. The fitness room includes a cross trainer, free weights and treadmill – as well as floor-to-ceiling windows – so you can survey the surrounds while you train. Then top the lot by resting those muscles in the sauna or steam room.
An ideal location for couples or small families looking for a peaceful holiday, Islamlar has not been touched by mass tourism, yet still boasts plenty of things to see and do. Curling around a historic harbour, it’s sandy shores are sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains and provide the perfect opportunity to go swimming, take part in water sports or get back into nature.
The friendly Turkish village of Islamlar lies in the foothills of the towering Taurus Mountains on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. The incredibly beautiful area offers a compelling combination of a peaceful, utterly unspoilt terrain with the convenience of being close to the lively town of Kalkan. The villa is in a countryside spot, yet is close to local restaurants and shops for picking up essentials.
In the centre of Islamlar (or its surrounds) you can get an authentic insight into traditional rural Turkish life. Explore the olive groves and vineyards or head to one of the famous trout farm restaurants with locally-sourced ingredients and beautiful views down the valley. The villa is also close to parts of the Lycian Way Trail – a wonderful walking route that traverses the coastline.
A fifteen-minute drive from Islamlar will take you to Kalkan, an old fishing town and harbour between Kas and Fethiye. It’s famous for its white-washed houses, descending to the sea, and its brightly coloured bougainvillaea flowers. Dine on a roof terrace restaurant or bar with wonderful views of the town or while away the afternoon at one of the many harbour-side restaurants.
There are plenty of beaches in the area including Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach. Both have cafes, sun loungers and sunshades. You could also leave Kalkan harbour on a wooden gulet (classic Turkish sailing boat) to experience the full beauty of the coast. For an exciting cultural day trip instead, you could visit the sunken remains at Kekova. Boats go there from Kas, a 30-minute drive from Kalkan.
