Villa Zeynep Turkey


Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas

Villa Zeynep is one of two identical sister villas. Contemporary and secluded these mountain retreats are hidden away in the village of Islamlar, yet only fifteen minutes from the sun-baked coastal town of Kalkan. This two-bedroom villa sleeps up to four and is deceptively spacious, ideal for those seeking peace and solitude. Whitewashed natural stone walls encase the immaculately sculpted garden and the private pool offers an outstanding degree of privacy and intimacy, an utterly serene space to refresh and renew. The mountain location enjoys a slight breeze which is especially welcome during the hottest months of July and August. Villa Zeynep affords a unique opportunity to capture the essence of the region, while having every creature comfort and mod con available.

This light and airy new villa takes full advantage of the tranquil surrounding nature and greenery whilst blending subtly with the environment. The architectural design is fresh and attractive. Built on two stories, huge picture windows at the rear of the house frame the swimming pool, garden and gnarled olive trees beyond. Inside, the décor is effortlessly chic. Neutral pastel tones and white walls are balanced by slate grey fixtures and fittings.

While you may not have come on holiday to cook, the contemporary Italian style Kitchen is fully equipped should you wish to create an array of scrumptious meze. The open plan living area is comfortably relaxed and the perfect spot to linger. There is a real sense of inside-outside living space, the large glass doors open allowing residents to enjoy the best of both worlds with very little effort. Lazy days can be spent hanging between the pool deck, shaded outdoor lounge and there is also a built-in barbecue for those evenings you do not want to leave.

Sleeping quarters are located to the far side of the house and are divided between the ground and first floor. A staircase leads to the romantic galleried master bedroom with en-suite. Outside, there is a comfortably furnished corner balcony with magnificent mountain views. The second master bedroom is located downstairs and is equally as elegant and roomy but with the added benefit of a spacious freestanding jacuzzi bath and doors open onto the pool terrace.

Villa Zeynep is the ultimate relaxation location. Switch off from the everyday in the privacy of the villa, or put your shoes on and explore rustic mountain village life and jaw dropping vistas.
Islamlar, near Kalkan, is very much an escape from it all destination, offering a sense of authentic Turkish Village life within striking distance of the turquoise coast. Direct daily flights from the UK, an enjoyable 95-minute transfer together with a consistent Mediterranean climate make this region one of the most desirable choices for your well-deserved vacation. This rural corner has remained very much untouched for centuries, with agricultural traditions being the beating heart of the local community. Islamlar is a quintessential rural settlement within a fifteen minute drive of the picture-postcard and elegant harbour town of Kalkan, famed for its charming, cobbled passageways, archetypal waterfront, and seriously chic roof terrace restaurants.

Perched on the foothills of the Taurus range, the landscape adopts a lusher tone than nearby Kalkan. The hillsides amok with vines, an abundance of fruit trees and a stream that runs down the valley, flanked by trout restaurants. Once a Greek settlement, and known locally as Bodemya, the area enjoys a calm breeze, created by the flowing spring waters which run off the mountains. Traditionally, it was popular for the wealthy merchants from Kalkan to maintain a second home here to escape the intense summer heat. The area is criss-crossed by the ancient Lycian way, a demanding walking trail affording some of the most scenic panoramic vistas you can imagine.

The village is dotted with intriguing small restaurants, servicing the local community and villa trade, many of which enjoy sensational views across the valley below and beyond to Mouse and Snake islands. Enjoy the low key atmosphere and relaxingly refreshing ambience. The village still retains two working mills where villagers bring their grains to be turned into flower. Unwind to the soothing tune of the water mill while sipping on a chilled glass of wine from a vineyard local to the area. The fare is authentic, local, and bursting with flavour, produced on the fertile plains of the valley by self-sufficient locals.

Descend from the mountainous passes to the sparkling inky sea. A plethora of upmarket beach clubs ring the horseshoe bay where Kalkan proudly takes centre stage. This relaxing and well serviced concept makes it easy to spend time lingering and socialising by the water’s edge. Kaputas, is probably the most photographed beach in this southwestern corner of Turkey and is well worth a visit, just 10 minutes east of Kalkan. Venture, a similar distance in the other direction, west, to the ancient city of Patara. The beautiful golden sand is a breeding ground for the loggerhead turtles, strict conservation restrictions have ensured this 18 kilometre shoreline remains undeveloped. Behind the dunes we recommend you explore the ancient port which is possibly the most fascinating Lycian site in the region.

There is a myriad of interesting places to explore and time can easily be spent between relaxation and exploration on land or at sea. Whether you wish to visit ancient sites, sail on a traditional wooden gulet from cove to cove or enjoy an exhilarating morning of canyoning. There is something to be enjoyed by everyone. Islamlar is a fine base from which to explore the very best of the Turquoise Coast.
