There's a special place that we strive for and dream of all of our lives. It has to do with finding peace and tranquility, calm and contentment. It's the feeling you get when you've reached your spiritual home. Here at Villa Rosemary, welcomed by the warm and friendly people of the Kalkan region, you can find the holiday of your dreams.
Villa Rosemary brings you the ultimate in luxury and style, in one of the most beautiful places in the world. A holiday that will stay in your heart forever. In the foothills of the Toros Mountains, overlooking the breathtaking plains of Patara, and surrounded on all sides by the enchanting landscapes of Turkey's famous Lycian coastline, you will find your own secluded corner of paradise. At 3000 square feet, this property is not only very generously proportioned, but the way the cool and contemporary design connects with the views is nothing short of spectacular.
Villa Rosemary has been constructed to an exceptionally high standard and furnished with immense style and flair, both inside the property and on the extensive terraces, to make the most of relaxing, dining alfresco, entertaining new found friends or just enjoying a gin and tonic as the sun dips behind the mountains. The level of amenities at a property of this quality ensures that guests can relax and rejuvenate, but wireless internet will enable you to keep in touch, and the on-site staff will be close at hand should you need them... available but unobtrusive.
It is not just the accommodation that makes Villa Rosemary so special. Situated in the foothills of the Toros Mountains - close to local restaurants, and just 20 minutes by car from Kalkan – the villa offers a compelling combination of peace and utterly breathtaking views, along with the convenience of being close to Kalkan, justifiably famous for its fine dining and beautiful old town.
Accommodation is arranged over 3 floors, with a large open plan living space on the middle floor to make the most of the incredible views that the property’s location allows. Large floor-to-ceiling windows offer dramatic, awe-inspiring views of the landscape, sea and Patara beach. Sunlight floods into the living area, and the early morning sun, and sunset in particular, create a wonderful ambience in which to relax.
The living area comprises 2 areas of lounge seating with coffee tables, kitchen, dining area, cloakroom, and stairs to the floors above and below. The large open plan living space opens onto large balconies through sliding doors at each end, where guests can enjoy the views and outside dining. A large screen LCD television with satellite channels and DVD player are provided, as well as wireless internet. Various pieces of wall art and paintings give the living area a warm, stylish and contemporary feel.
The kitchen is fully fitted, with granite worktops, and is exceptionally well equipped. The appliances are German top of the range and include a dishwasher and large fridge freezer. The gas hob and electric fan oven will also appeal to those serious about cooking. The dining area, like everywhere in the living space, has lovely views and comfortably seats 8 people.
On the ground floor, sliding doors from the 2 double ensuite bedrooms open onto the large pool deck, with swimming pool and sun terraces with sun beds and large swing seat, and a barbecue and outside dining and lounge furniture. There is also a large sliding door from a central hallway onto the pool deck. A downstairs shower and cloakroom completes the lower floor space.
The villa is accessed via the front door on the top floor, which opens into a large central hall. The huge window over 2 floors reveals the spectacular views, giving a dramatic and quite stunning first impression. The master and twin bedroom suites are situated either side of the hall.
The bedrooms on the top floor of the villa offer extremely spacious and beautifully appointed ensuite accommodation. Both have large furnished balconies with lovely views over the countryside below and mountains and sea beyond. The master bedroom also has a fitted dressing area and a safe. The 2 ground floor double ensuite bedrooms have direct access to the swimming pool and pool deck. All double beds are super king size.
At dusk, imaginative and clever lighting transforms the feel of Villa Rosemary, and sets the mood for an unforgettable evening ahead.
Villa Rosemary lies in the heart of Turkey's finest region of outstanding natural beauty midway between the quiet, charming villages and local shops of Islamlar and Üzümlü and surrounded on all sides by the landscapes of Turkey’s enchanting Lycian coastline.
