Kalkan is a small peaceful village on the Med which hasn't been touched by mass tourism. Set against the majestic backdrop of the Taurus mountains, it occupies possibly the most beautiful position along Turkey's stunning Lycian coast. The area is renowned for it's natural wonders such as Patara Beach and Saklikent Gorge and it's wealth of historical sights such as Xanthos, Patara, Letoon and Tlos. Villa Florence is situated in a commanding, elevated position with lovely views over Kalkan Bay and is a short, 10 minute walk into the town. The nearest shop is 1 minute walk away. The villa is sited in a plot of 4 other similar villas, none of which overlook each other and separated by thick garden vegetation. The plot is backed by natural landscaping (mainly olive trees) and the nearest villa is approximately 1 kilometer away. We are very close to the main, though generally quiet main road into Kalkan and we are opposite the sleepy, new bus garage with cafe and barbers.
