Little Paradise

Ella ,Leon and families - June 2019 

We have just come back from this little paradise called, Kalkan in the Dalman coast of Turkey.
We stayed at lovely Villa Lucia. We have been to Dalaman before but had never hired a Villa .This time we were meeting up with the rest of my family and we decided it has to be turkey and Dalaman again. We come across this villa which could house us all as we were 9 adults coming from three different countries and what a fabulous decision this was!
We all arrived at the early hours of the morning to Dalaman Airport. Maria the owner organised the taxi transfer for all of us to the villa. The taxi ride was comfortable and the driver was very good and gentle. The road was new, with no bumps.
Upon our arrival in the early hours of morning we found the fridge full of goodies and drinks, cheese and marmalade was set out for us to use and even the smell of freshly baked bread on the kitchen counter. It was such a fantastic gesture and so comforting that we don’t need to rush to shop in the morning to get breakfast. The villa is spacious and immaculately furnished. Attention to details in every single aspect of it is amazing. Anything and everything that you may need during your stay has been thought of. The view from all floors is out of this world. Kalkan Bay is picturesque with its blue green clear water and white pebbles. The sea water was a bit cold at this time of the year but the heated swimming pool at the villa was perfect instead. Walk to centre of the town takes about 15 min and you need flat shoes to be comfortable. There is a bakery next to the footbridge and tasty Turkish bread from early hours of the morning. The supermarkets are not far and there are few choices. There was also a butcher where we bought our meet and chicken form for BBQ. The villa has a lovely BBQ area with stone made BBQ. There is a bus station (OTO GARI) to the left of petrol station and you can take a minibus to Pathara beach which is a sandy stretch of beach for miles. It is absolutely amazing and we spent the whole day there with picnics and drinks. Our whole stay was fantastic thanks to Maria and Mark the owners of villa Lucia by providing all the information and organising everything we needed. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed every second of our visit to this beautiful part of the world at villa Lucia. We can’t wait to go back next year for hopefully couple of weeks this time. Thank you Maria and Mark for sharing your villa with us.
Love from Ella ,Leon and all our families

 

Simply Stunning

Jo & Neil Trueman - June 2019

We have just returned from the most wonderful stay at Villa Lucia, Kalkan, Turkey. This amazing gem of a villa is absolutely beautiful. Nestled on the picturesque hills of Kalkan, Villa Lucia has everything (& more) you need for a comfortable, luxurious stay. The interior is beautifully decorated throughout, air-con in all rooms, modern and spacious - the numerous extra 'home' comforts provided by owners Maria and Mark didn't go unnoticed. We arrived to find a food hamper and drinks, which was so unexpected and welcome. Maria and Mark have thought of everything - even spare toiletries for guests in each bedroom in case you may have forgotten bits.
The views from the villa are breathtaking, wheather you are swimming in the pool, sitting on one of the bedroom balconies, pottering on the cabana roof terrace or simply relaxing on a sun lounger in the garden, you see spectacular bay views from all aspects.
The taxi service in Kalkan is fantastic. Just call and a driver arrives in 5 minutes. A trip into the centre of town costs just £2.  The 10 minute walk down into town is also pleasant, so worth a go. The restaurants are all amazing - and so many to choose from - we ate somewhere different each night and had some amazing food. The harbour has numerous boat trips running, so if you fancy a sea excursion there are loads to choose from. Maria and Mark have complied 2 information folders highlighting lots of recommendations and info which was invaluable.
I would recommend a stay at Villa Lucia to anyone. We have already booked again for May 2020.
Thank you to Maria and Mark for making our holiday so wonderful and for sharing your beautiful home with us.
