The Olive Grove Apartment

Kalkan, Turkey

The harbour at night

Kalkan – a small peaceful resort and fishing village with immense charm, has changed little over the years and offers a taste of traditional Turkish life. The narrow cobbled streets wind down through the village of whitewashed houses, shops, and restaurants until the small harbour is reached.

More sophisticated than the usual resort town, Kalkan appeals to travellers looking for more than a ‘sun and sea’ holiday.

The town itself is full of quality restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops selling hand-made goods. In the evening the local restaurants come alive, and the rooftop terraces provide a perfect setting from which to admire the beautiful scenery.

Many places of natural beauty and historical interest - Lycian Way, Saklikent Gorge, Kekova sunken city, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, are all within easy reach.

We offer you complete rest from the moment you step off the plane, and will arrange your transfer to/from from the airport if you do not wish to hire a car. The complex is managed by the Asfiya Group, and guests may use free of charge the nearby facilities of the Asfiya hotel and nearby beach clubs.

Our apartment is within easy walk of the village, local beaches and beach clubs. It is fully maintained during your holiday with people on hand to welcome you and help you with any problems you might have.

The apartment is situated midway between Kalkan town and Kalamar Bay, along Kalamar Road. It is contained within the Saneil complex of 15 privately owned luxury apartments.

There are stunning views from the balcony, kitchen, and lounge of both Kalkan and Kalamar bays.

A 10 minute walk takes you into Kalkan town, or for the less active, a taxi can be ordered.

With only 15 apartments on the complex, there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the freshwater swimming pool, which has a children’s area at one end. Umbrellas and loungers are provided for each apartment.

Guests may use the nearby facilities of the Asfiya hotel with large pool, rooftop restaurant, Turkish bath, gym and sauna and the Yali beach club. Transfer to the beach club is complimentary.

There are six beach clubs in Kalkan three of which are reached by a free boat service leaving the harbour at regular intervals.
Harbour road

Kalkan's streets are narrow and steep, and therefore not suitable for the infirm. Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say that the town is the only destination they would choose to visit repeatedly. There is simply no other town quite like Kalkan along Turkey's Mediterranean coast.

Kalkan sits snugly around the ancient harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus mountains. The town overlooks a beautiful bay, and narrow streets lined with whitewashed villas, small specialty shops, and restaurants twist down to the harbour.

Besides the historic architecture, the many restaurants contribute to the special atmosphere within Kalkan. Good dining has always been the way of life in Kalkan and continues today.
