A place to relax, enjoy and keep secret


We’ve had lots of lovely comments from previous guests at Villa Lucia, many of whom have returned on more than one occasion - here are a few comments:

“We had a thoroughly great holiday and very much enjoyed staying in Villa Lucia. We really cannot fault a thing about it. It was very comfortable and clean and your handbook came in very useful. We were so impressed that we would like to re-book sometime in the future and perhaps bring some friends along too (if we can bear to share it). Once again many thanks for providing such a fantastic service and wonderful place to stay. We hope to stay again”

Chivonne & Mike (London)

"We all had the most wonderful holiday in Kalkan, your villa is superb and we would not hesitate in unreservedly recommending to friends and colleagues. You provided everything we required and although we have previously holidayed in luxury villas that were well equipped yours surpassed all expectations and has been by far the best. The maintenance staff and your friends from the Kalkan Elite and Xpress travel were extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble for them please convey our thanks to them all when you next meet. Once again please accept our thanks for your thoughtfulness, and for sharing your beautiful Kalkan holiday home and views with us."

Kathy Peat, Trish Johnson & Family (Wirral)

"Your villa is fantastic, by far the best-equipped villa we have ever stayed in (and there have been a few!) Your attention to detail such as the excellent pictorial instructions for appliances and the (much appreciated by the whole family) comprehensive CD collection. Things like this really made the holiday. Everything was scrupulously clean and the people who came to do the pool and linen were very unobtrusive. You really are very lucky to have such a wonderful Villa. We'd love to come back to Kalkan next year."

Claire McKenna & Family (Bristol)

"We had a super holiday in Kalkan. We loved the villa - you had thought of everything - even down to the icepacks and cool box for keeping our water cool while out in the heat. The villa was comfortable, roomy and well equipped, the pool and terrace area ideal and well-used by us all. We loved Kalkan, had some super trips and delicious food. The staff at the Elite Hotel and Xpress were helpful, friendly and sorted everything out perfectly and looked after us and your garden and pool perfectly. We'd love to come back to Kalkan and your villa for another holiday. Thanks again for all your help and advice and good luck in all your future visitors, I'm sure they'll have similar experiences to ours."

Rose Tilley Family & Friends (Dursley)

"We had a fantastic holiday in Kalkan thank you. The villa was absolutely perfect and really felt like home from home but with the sunshine. Kalkan is beautiful and the guys at the Elite were very friendly and always eager to help. We have already decided that we will be going back again and just hope that you will have the dates free once we have decided when to go - I have a feeling we’ll have to get in quick."

Gaye & Karl Evans (Rugby)

"We would just like to say that we all had a fantastic time at Villa Lucia, Kalkan. Everything was really well organised, from airport transfers to the private gullet day trip you arranged for us. The website certainly did the villa justice, every room and every view is just what we had hoped for and more. Finally, we would just like to say thank you."

Samantha & Paul Middleton & Family (Milton Keynes)

"Just a quick note to say we had a fantastic time at Villa Lucia - you have a really lovely place there. Everything went smoothly and we had no glitches with the transfers and car hire - thanks for arranging those with Xpress Tours."

Robin Lahiri & Family (London)

"We are writing to say thank you for a lovely holiday at your villa. We were made to feel most welcome by the locals and absolutely loved the spotlessly clean, fantastic views and very relaxing atmosphere your villa offered. There are plenty of villas to rent in Kalkan but we would definitely go back to Villa Lucia."

Mary & Gary Thomas & Family (Moelfre, Anglesey)

"I am writing to pass on my family’s thanks for your assistance in making our visit to Kalkan, a holiday we will never forget. The accommodation was fantastic and exceeded our expectations - one of the nicest villas in Turkey we could have chose. Please pass on our thanks to the team from the Elite who maintained your villa to a very high standard and the transfer company (Xpress tours) who made the trip to and from Kalkan very comfortable. Finally, villa rental in Kalkan is becoming very popular but your villa is without doubt the best equipped and cleanest villa that we have stayed in. Should any of your new clients require a reference I will be more than happy to share our experiences with them."

The McKearnen Family (Lytham St Anne's)

"Just to say a huge thank you for the use of your fantastic villa, it was outstanding and we could not have wished for more. All the facilities were in excellent condition and I for one was loathe to go out - Heather."

Heather & Aziz (Bedford)

"I would like to thank you on behalf of myself and my family for the wonderful week we spent in Villa Lucia. I have been to Kalkan many times and am always delighted when I return that nothing changes. It is the first time I've stayed in a Villa and I can assure you it wont be the last. Villa Lucia was perfect not only in setting but in comfort too. Perfect!"

Laura Pegg & Family (London)

"I researched Kalkan prior to booking and thought it looked like our type of destination, I wasn't disappointed it is a fabulous location. Your villa is superb, everything that we needed was catered for, the location is stunning, it was all kept spotlessly clean by your staff. I never like to return to the same location as I love seeing new places, but I am under severe pressure from the other four to return next year."

Rhodic Paul & Family (Cwmbran Torfaen)

"Sadly back at home and at work after a fabulous holiday at Villa Lucia. The Villa was every bit as good as we had hoped, very comfortable, well equipped, lovely pool, pretty garden and great views over Kalkan. We felt very spoilt with your staff coming every day to check the pool and clean up the garden. Great holiday we will return!"

The Still & Bird Families (Devon)

"We have just returned from Kalkan where we have had a wonderful two weeks holiday. Your villa was fabulous, a home away from home with all the comforts anyone could need. The pool boy (who worked very hard each day, making the outside of the villa look immaculate) and cleaning staff were all excellent. I would certainly recommend your villa to anyone. We had a fantastic time - thank you we can not wait to get back there."

Dawn and Jes Speke (Co Durham)

"Just a quick line to say a very big thank you, we had a fantastic holiday. Villa Lucia was perfect; very comfortable, great location and breathtaking sea views. 4 bedroom villas for rent in Kalkan are not in abundance, we are so glad to have chose Villa Lucia, beautiful. We'll be back!"

Sara Jenkins & Family (London)

"Having got home at gone midnight on Monday this is the first chance I have had to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your lovely villa. How we wish we had booked two weeks. What a fab place you have. We had a lovely week and you have clearly put a great deal of time and effort into ensuring things are just right for your guests. It was just what we needed and we would like to say a very big thank you for the effort which was made to make it just such a wonderful week."

Trevor Quinn-Thomas & Family (Somerset)

"I have stayed at Villa Lucia twice previously, the first time in 2007 with extended family and the second in 2008 with friends. I have just booked my third holiday for next year (2014) and am thoroughly looking forward to (what i already know) will be a wonderful experience.The villa is very clean and very well maintained, in a lovely location. Not too close to the restaraunts etc (about 10 mins) but not too far away either so its quiet and peaceful. Kalkan is beautiful.Gary and Jayne are always most helpful and will assist with anything where they can. I put my trust in them for a smooth and well organised holiday. Thank you both and look forward to more holidays at Villa Lucia" ! ;-)

Rachel Rickman (Bournemouth)

"What can I say about this beautiful villa other than visiting Kalkan and staying at Lucia was by far one of the greatest holidays we have ever had. The villa is immaculate, roomy, well positioned for the town and with exquisite views that will be engrained in your memory, long after you leave. All that you need for your stay is in Villa Lucia which is exceptionally well priced for what you get we felt. A return trip is definitely on the cards so if you want a stunning villa, a destination to shut your mind down, enjoy great food, wines and friendly locals...this is a jewel you must unearth"

Abby Newell & Friends (Berkhamstead)

"My husband and I along with four friends visited Villa Lucia during May. We had a fantastic holiday and everything at the villa more than fulfilled our expectations. Jayne and Gary have obviously put a lot of thought and consideration providing all the amenities and service to ensure our holiday to Kalkan was a memorable one for all the right reasons. The villa was immaculately clean throughout and has 4 large bedrooms all if which are comfortable, tastefully presented, have individual bathrooms but most of all have stunning sea views. The lounge area is also very spacious with plenty of seating for at least 8-9 people. I am not a big tv fan, however the satellite service had lots of English speaking channels including news, film, sports etc. the WiFi was also very good and used regularly during our stay. The open plan kitchen is very well equipped and provided some extras you wouldn't always expect in a rental property i.e. large bottle water cooling machine. The open plan kitchen area has a large marble top breakfast bar, however we mostly ate outside in the shaded dining area which was lovely especially at breakfast time. The pool area provided comfortable sunbeds and umbrella shades, the pool itself was a good size and clean however it is quite deep without a shallow end. I would have no hesitation recommending this villa to anyone, we definitely have plans to return in the near future. May I take this opportunity to say a big thank you once again to Jayne and Gary for making our stay in Kalkan such a special one"

Mr & Mrs Swan (Chester)

"We stayed at Villa Lucia in June, myself and my partner and our 9 month old baby. The villa is lovely and very comfortable, exceeded our expectations and we really didn’t want to leave. There were 2 good baby cots and highchairs for us to use and a stair gate for the bottom of the stairs which was great for our little one. The kitchen was very well equipped, the living room very comfortable with great tv (better than the UK!) and lovely views out to the pool/garden and beyond to the sea (especially nice in the evening when the pool is lit up). The master bedroom has an enormous bed, we slept really well and the air con throughout was very welcome. The garden is lovely and well maintained by the guys who visit each morning and evening to treat the pool etc. Nice touches with the vast CD collection, free phone for local numbers, cool box and ice packs for days out to the beach etc. and all the information provided by the owners in the info booklet (really helpful). The villa is approx. 10-15 minute stroll to the centre of the old town or a quick taxi ride away. Kalkan itself is a pretty old village with lots of excellent restaurants – Sofra and Doy Doy were our favourites. There were also good BBQ facilities for dining al fresco for when you want to stay home and a good butcher in town. Many of the food places will also make deliveries to the villa if you phone orders through as we did for lunch occasionally. Thoroughly recommended and hope to return again one day… Loved it"

Andrea & Liam (Lytham St Anne's)

Our holiday in Villa Lucia was fabulous and met all our expectations.   The villa was ideal for our party of 5 adults and was equipped with everything that we could possibly need.  The wifi access was a bonus as was the complimentary telephone for ringing taxis and ordering food to be delivered!  It was like home from home.  We have visited Kalkan before and have never ever been disappointed.  We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Lucia with its comforts, luxury private pool and beautiful gardens and hope to visit again in the future
