Villa Zeytin Koru

Ref: 4279

Sleeps: 10 (4 Bedrooms)

Location: Kalamar Road
Pool: Private 
Aircon: Yes
Wifi: Yes 
Car? Not necessary
View: Sea


This extremely spacious and attractive 4-bedroom villa is situated on the hillside overlooking Kalamar Bay and enjoys stunning sea-views.

It has a slightly upside-down layout but to great effect: three of the bedrooms (two king-sized doubles and a twin) are on the ground floor, with direct access to the pool terraces. The main living area and kitchen are on the first floor with a covered dining terrace with sea views and external steps down to the pool area. The fourth king sized double bed-room occupies the whole of the top floor and has a large terrace with sea views and external steps to the dining terrace and pool area. All the bed-rooms are en-suite and large enough to accommodate a cot if required. there are also three sofa-beds, providing extra flexibility and inceasing the total capacity to 10 people.

There are extensive terraces and gardens around the property offering a choice of sun or shade at all times of the day, as well as a roof-top terrace to make the most of the lovely views. The large swimming pool is attractively shaped and there is a separate children’s pool.

Villa Zeytin Koru is very close to the Kalamar road so it is a fairly flat 15-20 minute stroll to and from the top of the old town. This makes it possible to walk into the centre of Kalkan even in the height of summer and it is a pleasant stroll back after dinner without the need to take a taxi! There are small bars and cafes along the road so you can stop for shade and refreshment or a night-cap if required! The sea-front and beach-club at Kalamar Bay are closer, but the walk is obviously steeper, approx 5-10 minute down and slightly longer on the way back. If you visit the beach club they will provide complimentary transport back to the villa to avoid the climb back up. There are also two mini-markets and several restaurants and cafés close to the Villa (within a 5 minute walk) so a car, although useful, is not essential. Airport transfers can be arranged on request at additional cost.

The local English manager provides a meet and greet service on arrival at the villa and a local contact in case of any problems or queries during your stay.

  • Just got back from our stay in Kalkan at villa zeytin koru, we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The villa had everything we needed for a young family & very child friendly. Stuart the owner was always on hand & a great help throughout the booking process & the stay itself if we needed any of his expertise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • This is a fantastic villa in Kalamar district of Kalkan with high quality features, furnishings and technology. A huge amount of thought has gone in by the owners into making sure visitors have everything they need for a stress free and successful holiday, with many thoughtful touches. The villa is well set up for parties with children and for our party with teenage boys, good wifi across the whole property was appreciated as was the set of gym weights. A very large property outside and inside on many floors, so space for large groups and a great pool area. The location just off the Kalamar road is ideal, quiet, but with easy access to Kalkan centre. Having stayed in many villas in this area over the years can highly recommend this one.

  • villa was perfect, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly want. Welcome pack was full of information and advice, also recommendations of many restaurants nearby which were all excellent. Location ideal for amenities in town and harbour and plenty of activities to suit all ages.

  • Our 2nd visit to the villa and you don't go back to a place unless you are happy and we were more than happy! I'm sure there will be someone out there who could find fault with the villa, customer service etc but I would suggest in such circumstances any "problem" is more likely to be with the person. Great facilities, some lovely local restaurants - highly recommended!!

  • Our best villa yet!

    We travelled as an extended family of 11 and zeytin koru was so spacious we never felt on top of each other. There are so many areas to sit and relax. The pool is a great size with steps for ease of access, which my parents greatly appreciated. We had a couple of days with changeable weather, which we expected, so a real bonus was the Nintendo wii, the fussball and air hockey tables. The table tennis table at the front of the villa was a real hit with the teenagers. The villa is exactly as pictured and was spotlessly clean for our arrival. After a week it was fully cleaned again with new sheets and towels. The location is perfect, being just 5 minutes walk from cafe vita on the Kalamar road. This is definitely the best villa we have stayed in yet for the price and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to friends and family.

  • Book it! You will love your stay.

    Stuart offered lots of advice before we booked and was so friendly and welcoming and sent us lots of information once we had booked the villa. Emailing us Maps, local information and recommendations. There was a welcome pack with food and drink waiting for us on arrival along with a spotlessly clean and inviting place to stay. My Husband and I travelled with our 2 young children and they had a ball. They loved the pool, all the outside space, TV, Games and of course the amazing games room. The Vila is in a perfect location, there is a excellent Restaurant at the top of the road. Plus lots of choice a short walk into town. We had a car which meant we could explore more, which I recommend. But, this is not necessary as the village of Kalkan has more than enough to tempt. Great Villa, Amazing location. Thank You!

  • A beautiful well appointed villa in a fabulous location

    This a a superb villa in a great location. This villa is spacious and will accommodate 8 people comfortably. The pool is quite large and was warm when we were there (early May). The views down to the bay are lovely. The villa is about half a mile from the town of Kalkan. There are many restaurants within a couple of hundred yards of the villa. This is a great place to stay for a relaxing holiday.

  • Luxury stay with fabulous views

    We stayed in Zeytin Koru with friends during the first week in May. We were blessed with lovely weather. This is a lovely spacious villa with well decorated rooms all ensuite. The view from our room at the top over Kalkan was stunning with our own private balcony. Other rooms have equally nice views over the pool. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay and cleaned to a very high standard. Beer and wine plus food essentials were left for our arrival which was a nice touch. If you can bear to tear yourself away from the poolside there are several good restaurants nearby including recently opened The Brothers and Yelken. It takes about 20 minutes to walk down into the old town of Kalkan where there are many more restaurants offering rooftop dining. It is a bit of a hike back up the hill but we enjoyed walking off our dinner and there are plentiful cheap taxis if you would prefer not to walk.

  • A fabulous stay at villa Zeytin Koru

    We arrived at villa Zeytin Koru in the early hours of a Saturday morning following a good transfer from Dalaman which was arranged via the owner. It was lovely to arrive to a welcome pack consisting of beer, wine, fruit juice, milk, tea, coffee etc a perfect way to start the holiday! The villa itself is lovely, was spotlessly clean and spacious, with lovely outside space and a fantastic pool. It is actually a traditional Turkish style home, with three bedrooms on the ground floor and the living room & kitchen / diner on the first floor leading onto a lovely terraced area which gives superb sea views and is a lovely place to eat and drink. This type of layout is excellent, as the bedrooms all give easy access to the pool area, so although it feels odd at first, it's very practical. The facilities within the villa are ideal and plentiful, the dishwasher is a god send, the Sky TV was a bonus and the owners even have a little mobile phone left there for you so that the English lady who manages the place for them, Sharon, can contact you or vice versa should the need arise (she gives excellent advice on shops, bars & restaurants etc and lives locally). There is also a very good BBQ on the first floor terrace which we used a couple of times, cooking lovely steaks whilst drinking cold beers looking out to sea is a must! The location of the villa is very good, a car is not required, as it's a ten minute stroll into town (Kalkan is quite hilly but the walk along the Kalamar Road is more or less flat) and if you know the Turks, you'll know that the shop or minimarket owners and most bar / restaurant owners will pick you up or drop you back if you ask. Otherwise, it's a couple of quid in a taxi. As for places to eat, we have holidayed in Turkey for the last 4 years and never had a bad meal, the food standard is brilliant and caters for all. There are so many places to eat in the old town (too many to mention), with several lovely places close to the villa along Kalamar Road such as Cafe Vita (good for breakfast and BBQ night), Yelkin, Kaptans and more besides. Overall we were very happy indeed and would highly recommend this villa.

  • Go and see for yourself you will not be dissappointed!

    Left on Sep 22, 2015 for a stay in Sep 2015
    We arrived at night so the welcome pack was a god send, we dumped our cases and headed straight out to the Yelkin bistro it was the nearest we could see, it was really nice food. The next morning we couldn't wait to get up and see the views, sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea looking out to sea what more could you want it felt like paradise. The villa more than met our expectations, it has everything you need, we loved the outside space and the decent size pool, it is in a perfect location. The villa felt like home and all the bedrooms are a decent size. There are several bars and restaurants close by so if you don't feel like the walk into town there is no need to. We ended up making Café Vita our local, if we didn't eat in there we always ended up in there for a night cap, such lovely and friendly people and the food is superb, you must go on bar b q night, really good value. We also recommend Ekin Han hotel, the views are wonderful and again the food was superb it was funny meeting a Turkish Scouser (one of the owners) being Scousers ourselves! Another local restaurant to try is The Brothers again really nice food and people, it was funny watching one of the waiters trying in vain to stop a small puppy coming into the restaurant he had to give up in the end! Highlight of out stay was a return to Adams Place it has to be our favourite restaurant he is based on the road to Kas and he will come and pick you up, the restaurant is ran by Adam and his family and nothing is too much trouble, the views are outstanding and the food is divine.Lots of other restaurants in town but too many too mention all of them really nice food and friendly people. Kalkan is such a beautiful place, we love place, the food, the people and the wildlife we even found wild tortoises living in the bottom garden. We have all thoroughly enjoyed and had a very relaxing holiday at Zeytin Koru and will certainly like to return in the future. Thank you :)

  • Second visit - says it all!

    A lovely villa with enough room for everybody to be together or have some quiet time to yourself. A nice distance from the port for a pleasant walk or if you're feeling lazy there are plenty of great restaurants within 200 yards of the villa gate.

  • Beautifully appointed villa for totally relaxing holiday

    The villa is beautifully appointed with all the creature-comforts of home, set in a Mediterranean setting. Good sized bedrooms throughout, and a comfortable and large lounger area. Breakfast was taken on the balcony daily.....such a pleasant way to start the day. The villa is in easy walking distance to the town of Kalkan, and we ventured down each day to experience some of the best meals we have ever had on holiday. If I could recommend one activity, it would be the boat cruise of the nearby islands... full days experience, but well worth it. If you don't fancy walking to town, there are numerous restaurants nearby, again all with excellent and tasty menus. This was one of the best holidays we have ever had, and we'll definitely be back to Villa Keytin Koru.

  • What a fantastic villa and location. Kalkan is a fabulous base, there are so many day trips to do within an hour of the villa including Saklikent Gorge, Patara beach, the ruins at Letoon and Xanthos and boat trips. The villa is about a 20 minute easy walk from the old town, passing lots of cafes and stores along the way, the closest restaurant, bar and store is a two minute walk. We tended to drive into town each night and leave the car at the top, as the old town is pedestrian only. The villa was perfect for the 3 generations of our family including two kids 6 & 8. All doors lead to the large pool and the kids were in and out of it all day. The pool is the biggest we've ever had on a private villa and really deep too which suited us. The villa was immaculate and the English agent that the owners use was so friendly and helpful and always on hand if we needed anything.

    It was the best holiday we've ever had and we couldn't fault the villa at all. We hope to go back again one day.
