Seafront villas are relatively rare in Kalkan. The position of Grania’s House in prime frontline position just above the water’s edge in a garden of oleander, palm and olive trees at prestigious Club Patara/Patara Prince Resort makes it very special. It is the perfect romantic setting in which to relax and unwind, surrounded by gardens, very near the pools and with an unsurpassed view out to sea. Directly below is the round pool, with the main pool and sea-bathing from platforms over the rocks (the water is blue-flagged for quality) only an extra few paces away, all just a short stroll through the lush garden. The hotel, restaurants and bars are only a few steps further.
The villa sleeps 6-7 in 3 bedrooms including the garden suite, but it is possible to rent just the 2-bed villa outside July/August (please ask us for rate details for this.) The garden suite is not available independently.
3 bed/3 bath
Wi-fi: the villa has its own network
TV, limited channels. CD/DVD.
On gated complex with 24-hour security
Built on a steep hillside with many steps, the resort is unsuitable for the very young and the less mobile.
The villa's elegantly furnished interior is spacious and welcoming both in the villa and in the garden suite below, reached by outside steps from the villa terrace. Bedrooms throughout villa and suite are good-size doubles, each with a hair dryer. All the rooms are air-conditioned and all have wonderful sea views over the garden which provides an oasis of shade in summer heat. Sleeping accommodation is in bedrooms, not on sofa beds elsewhere, although there is room for a full-size folding bed for an additional guest if required. Cot and high chair can be made available. Bed linen, towels and beach towels are provided .
Our villa is privately managed, and our delightful manager is on hand in Kalkan town to deal speedily with any maintenance queries.
The garden suite is a stunning space, fronted by full length glass to take advantage of the fabulous view. It consists of sitting room with fridge and kettle; bedroom with double bed, looking directly out over the garden to the sea; bathroom with bath and shower; small patio with two wooden sunloungers. It is the perfect private space for additional family or guests and there is plenty of space for our full-size folding bed if required.
The villa main entrance leads into the open-plan sitting room with traditional fireplace and big French windows, stylishly decorated with Ottoman coffee table, antique artefacts, kelim rugs on the floor and as cushions on the generous and comfortable low seating. The well-equipped kitchen is separate, overlooking sea and garden, and has a full size cooker, extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, toaster, coffee-maker and electric kettle. Both rooms open onto the large partly-shaded terrace, fringed with bougainvillea and furnished with comfortable cane sofa, dining table and chairs. Steps lead down from here to the garden suite and patio. The downstairs w.c. houses a washing machine and there is an iron and ironing board. There is also a small safe.
The master bedroom has a Juliet balcony and boasts an elegant double four-poster bed, draped in fresh blue and white cotton. Its shower bathroom and w.c. is en-suite. The twin bedroom is attractively decorated in soft and light colours and has room for the folding bed, if required. Another shower bathroom and w.c is on the landing.
Club Patara/Patara Prince Resort is one of Kalkan’s best addresses, where terracotta houses with pantile roofs are set in gardens running down to the sea. An exclusive gated complex with 24-hour security, it was designed by the distinguished Turkish architect, Turhan Kaso. There are two seafront swimming pools, (both directly below Grania’s House) another at the top of the resort and one in the health centre; two tennis courts, one floodlit; restaurants, bars, a boutique hotel, shop and other amenities. Watersports are available. There is a free shuttle mini-bus to take you through the car-free resort. Club Patara is only a few minutes' boat or taxi ride from Kalkan harbour and village or a pleasant twenty minute walk in along a quiet side road.
