Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas
Ortaalan Suite is a stylish two bed, two bathroom villa, located in the fashionable area of Ortaalan, at the top of Kalkan town, on the Turquoise Mediterranean coast. This modern three storey villa has a unique configuration that makes it perfect for two couples sharing, a small family, or even a honeymoon just made for two. Every room in the villa commands stunning views over Kalkan town and harbour, and as far as the eye can see across the Mediterranean Sea. The furnishings and décor are contemporary, funky, and fabulous, using light coloured woods with splashes of primary colours. Including a sauna, Jacuzzi, and a playroom, a stay at Villa Ortaalan Suite is guaranteed to be full of fun.
Enter the villa at ground floor level where there is a covered private parking space, and step access to the first floor. Walk through the entrance hall to a large light and airy room that is home to a full-size pool table, a display unit with a flat screen LCD-TV, and multi coloured upholstered armchairs. Go through the floor to ceiling glass doors to a furnished balcony with a sea view. A further games room plays host to table football, a dart board, and an air hockey kit. Work up a sweat in the seated cedar wood Finnish style indoor sauna. There is an adjacent small, fully equipped kitchen with a family size fridge-freezer, and the must-have morning coffee maker. The first of the two bedrooms is on this floor with a double bed, dressing table, wardrobes, and an en-suite shower room. Take the stairs to the second floor where there is a vaulted living area with a port hole window. The seating area has two comfy sofas in blue and yellow, a satellite channel LCD television, and a matching dining set with four chairs. There is a further fully-equipped kitchen with all the mod cons to cook up the local cuisine. The second bedroom has a large king size double bed, with wardrobes and make-up table, a satellite LCD-TV, and an en-suite glass enclosed shower room with vanity unit and WC. After a hard day’s sunbathing or sightseeing, relax in the beautiful big built-in Jacuzzi bath with a superb sea view. A handy guest cloakroom completes the second floor.
Access the pool terrace from the floor to ceiling glass doors of the living area, where you will find an impressive private plunge pool, perfect for a few lengths before breakfast. The pool is surrounded by sun loungers with parasols, handy side tables, and the shaded seating area is a lovely spot for a cocktail at sunset. A dining table with chairs and a barbeque is the ideal place for some alfresco eating under the stars.
Ortaalan Suite is nestled in the hills and olive groves of desirable Ortaalan, at the top of Kalkan town, overlooking the harbour, with panoramic views over the aptly named Turquoise Coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The town of Kalkan is 125 kilometres from Dalaman Airport, a scenic one and a half hour journey through the Turkish countryside and Taurus mountains. Originally a Greek enclave called Kalamaki, Ottoman and Hellenic influences can be found in the winding streets of the old town, full of traditional white houses and home to a plethora of restaurants, cafes and bars, and souvenir shops full of goodies you’ll want to take home. From the villa it is a short walk into town, where there’s lots of shops, supermarkets, and banks, and a local Thursday market, that can provide all the provisions for a happy holiday. Many of Kalkan’s best beach clubs are within walking distance of the villa, with bathing platforms, sea views, swimming pools, and waiter service, there’s no need to leave your sun lounger all day. No stay in Kalkan is complete without a boat trip from the harbour, whether it’s a shared one with family and friends or you charter your own gulet, a day out at sea with your favourite captain and crew, is one to treasure. All aboard for a day of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays, enjoy a meal of local homecooked meze, take afternoon tea, and then sail back to harbour cocktail in hand to watch the sunset. For the beach bunnies, Kalkan has its own pebble beach with easy access into the sea.
Travel further afield to the stunning Kaputas Beach set in a natural gorge, or take a trip to Patara, where you will find twenty kilometres of unspoilt golden sands and a protected area for the hatching turtles. Kalkan is home to a number of beach clubs along the length of its coastline, have some fun in the sun at family-friendly resorts offering water sports and swimming pools, or relax and unwind at exclusive luxury destinations and be waited on hand and foot whilst enjoying alfresco spa treatments. For those with itchy feet the Lycian Way walking trail cuts through Kalkan. Follow in the footsteps of thousands of years of history, as you trek the trail taking you through major archaeological sites, local villages, dramatic coastlines, and the areas’ flora and fauna. Take a short journey to the town of Kinik, where you can step back in time to the Lycian city of Xanthos.
Follow the D400 to Fethiye, and discover the historical sites of Patara, Letoon, Tlos, and Pinara, where you can see the ancient ruins, amphitheatres and temples with Lycian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine influences. The harbour town of Fethiye is also full of ancient sites worth seeing, as well as a foodie-heaven fish market, and home to some seriously good designer labels and fabulous jewellery shopping. Whilst the nearer town of Kas is just twenty-five kilometres away, and worth the journey alone along one of the world’s most stunning and dramatic coastlines. Walk through the harbour to the cobbled streets full of Ottoman architecture and overhanging balconies festooned with pastel coloured bougainvillaea, barter for unique handmade and antique goods in its many shops, and make memories dining in one of the traditional restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine with mesmerising sea views. And if you’re feeling intercontinental hop on the twenty-minute ferry from Kas to the Greek island of Meis, where you can explore the Blue Cave and dine by the water’s edge.
