“The return was even better!!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was our second visit to this bolt hole in the Turkish mountains and it did not disappoint. The owner Pat together with Cihat, who maintains the property, were very accommodating to our every need. The villa itself is well equipped, spacious and extremely well maintained. The surrounding area is beautiful with a number of local markets and restaurants that provided us with everything we needed. We spent the best part of our holiday just relaxing by the pool and eating at the local restaurants and didn't want for anymore. I hate to recommend this place only because I want to keep it all to myself! Seriously one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays we have had. You have to try it out.....I promise you, you won't want to leave :-)

“Luxurious Relaxation”
Reviewed 14 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

If you are looking for a clean, well maintained, well equiped villa away from the hustle and bustle then this is undoubtably the place for you.
Pat (owner) and Cihat (gardener and helper) are always on hand but keep a discreet distance allowing you to enjoy the beautiful views whilst bathing round the refreshing pool with the reassurance they are nearby if you need any help or advice on local dining or attractions.
The villa is meticulously cleaned mid stay and fresh clean sheets and towels provided.
All 4 bedrooms have ensuite facilities and the downstairs area is large enough for a big group to enjoy the space without being on top of each other.

We are certainly hoping to enjoy a perfect week of relaxation at Villa Ruyam in the future.

“Perfect holiday getaway”
Reviewed 7 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Villa Ruyam was a perfect holiday getaway. The villa was well equipped and most importantly clean and very modern. Each room had a beautiful view, whether it was a mountain view, sea view or the view of the amazing sunsetting each evening. The pool was a really good size and nice because we had a younger child with us, so the shallow end was perfect. Cihat the caretaker was most helpful bringing us fresh bread each morning, as well being on hand for any problems, which there were none. We experienced a number of excursions from horse riding in Patara and Quad biking through Patara national park. We also experienced a lovely days boat trip in the small bay of Kekova, visiting the historical site 'the sunken city'. We were also treated to some traditional cooking of fresh fish cooked on the boat. Not only was the villa beautiful, but the owner, Pat was so welcoming and couldn't do enough to help and make sure our stay was problem free. I would definately recommend Villa Ruyam and can't wait to go Turkey again and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

“Easily the BEST villa we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 11 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

For the last two years (July 2010 & August 2011) we have spend two of the most relaxing two week holidays ever! We are so pleased to have found Pat's amazing Villa in this incredible area of Turkey.

Where to start?! The setting is without a doubt the best in the area with 360 degree views with no chance of anyone overlooking you at all. The villa kitted out to a superb standard and even though we felt it couldn't be improved upon Pat had added new touches this that further enhanced our stay.

Having rented many private properties one of the areas that stands out so much is the love and attention that Gihat and family (Pat's year round caretaker) place on ensuring the Villa is cleaned on a regular basis and all sheets / towels changed frequently. They bring lovely bread, honey and eggs each morning and the pool / terrace area is cleaned to perfection each morning before you wake up. This is an excellent perk of Villa Ruyam and certainly not the norm in Villas of any price range.

The views are to die for and I could take photo after photo of the Villa at various times of the day as the light changes.

Amenities are very very good and we are able to make very good meals when we feel like staying in. That said there are so many great local places to eat in both Islamlar and Kalkan that we do eat out very often!

All in all paradise and I think we will return for the hat trick of stays in 2012 :-)

Pat, keep up the great work.
