An Insight Into Kalkan
Good dining is a way of life in Kalkan, whether in the locantas among the locals where a meal costs a few pounds or by candlelight in the atmospheric harbour side restaurants or the romantic roof terrace restaurants for which Kalkan is renowned. Alternatively you can take a short trip into the hills and the pretty village of Ismalar with its trickling streams and springs and enjoy a dish of locally caught fresh trout traditionally cooked in olive oil.
Kalkan has an array of sophisticated antique shops, fashion boutiques, art galleries, jewellers, hand painted chinaware shops along with traditional souvenir outlets. Authentic hand woven Turkish rugs and carpets are also widely sold. Shopping in Kalkan should never be rushed and your host whilst browsing will inevitably offer you a glass of traditional Turquish tea. The maze of cobbled lanes that wind their way down to the harbour are perfectly complimented by bougainvillea-clad pensions, shops and restaurants.
If you plan to self cater there are plenty of supermarkets in Kalkan from which to purchase food and consumables and many will deliver to the villa. There is an excellent fish market butchers and stalls selling locally produced fruit and vegetables at a low price. There is a Thursday market selling a wide range of goods, from locally produced fruit and spices, to jewellery, leatherwear, souvenirs to clothes with fake designer labels.
A variety of Gullet cruises are available from Kalkans cosmopolitan harbour and will often include a visit to Kaputas beach, Mouse Island, Snake Island (just the shape of the islands, not their inhabitants) and the Blue Caves to name but a few destinations, you can go swimming, snorkelling by the coral wreaths and even participate in a mud bath. The cost is approximately £10 per person for a party of ten and lunch is normally provided for within that cost, and the ship is at your sole disposal all day.
Kalkan also offers massage, manicure parlours and Turkish Baths a great experience if you have never tried one before all at very reasonable rates.
We would recommend exchanging currency locally rather than in the UK, you will find a better exchange rate locally within the town of Kalkan many Banks and Post Offices.
We have produced a guidebook to Kalkan and the various nearby attractions and recommended places to visit, so please do not be concerned you will arrive at Villa Breeze and will have no representative to guide you around. We have tried to think of all the small important things that will make your holiday a memorable one. You will find this book at the villa so please feel free to browse through at your leisure. We also have a good friend of ours Roger who manages our villa, he is always available via the villa mobile if you need help or guidance, just to reassure you he is English so theres no need to be concerned about communication issues.
With regards to the above mentioned villa mobile this is available for local calls only and works on a top up card please feel free to use this phone to order take away food or pre-book restaurants or excursions or as stated above, if you wish to make calls back home we would recommend using the local phone shops or Post Offices you will find these a very cheap alternative to using your own mobile phone.
Hints & Recommendations
We would recommend hiring a car whilst you stay at our villa, the cost of hiring a normal family sized car is very reasonable approximately £20 per day including insurance, We can arrange for a hire car to be delivered to the villa and it makes getting about much easier, or alternatively you could use the local taxis they again are very reasonable and their are plenty available in town.
We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance for your visit to Turkey, you may find your family are already covered under your household insurance, but please confirm this with your insurance company before travelling.
The nearest airport to Kalkan is Dalaman, it takes around about an hour and half from the airport to Kalkan via taxi or a minibus, transport costs are very reasonable in Turkey and can easily be arranged either by yourselves or by us prior to travel, please see below for further details.
Flights to Dalaman are plentiful in supply and it only takes around about three and half hours from the UK on average, but it pays to book your flights early as a rule of thumb, there are plenty of airlines that fly to Dalaman airport if you perform a search via:
www.google.co.uk or www.ask.co.uk etc
