Just back from an amazing two weeks at this villa.Absolutely amazing views from the rooftop which more than makes up for the very steep bank up to it...after a week we hired a scooter...the locals know exactly how to get about....great for sightseeing too! £8-10 per day! Kalkan is not for anyone with mobility problems but you could use the taxi service which is very cheap approx £3!
The villa was just as described and only a five min walk over a footbridge finds you in the town.. which is a little gem full of fabulous rooftop restaurants and shops....so many to mention our favourite being "Kosk" but Mussaka, Sofra,Olive Garden and Wapiano were all excellent...surprisingly we found Aubergine a bit of a let down...very overrated! Best breakfast was Marine Restaurant at the harbour.The villa looks over the whole of Kalkan and it was magical sitting on the rooftop watching the changing sky with the sun setting and the whole town twinkling....
Don't leave without going on a boat trip..the most relaxing time was on the Yildiz boat with Adem and his wife.
The villa has a Jacuzzi bath in main bedroom where you can relax and have another amazing view.We had a couple of issues with the water going off but a quick phone call to Mustafa told us it was the whole area but within 30 mins the owner called to sort it.Incidently we thought he was the pool cleaner not the owner..he was lovely and brought his wife to meet us on the day of departure.
The villa has all the equipment you need however I would have liked some instructions on how to work some of it.
There are numerous pots,pans, dishes and a barbecue if you fancy a night in..you can also have food delivered from several places..we ordered from Fotos Pizza via face book.
If I had to make any suggestions for improving our stay it would be to have padding on the sun loungers and maybe a small welcome pack on arrival as I have had previously. Nothing is a problem and Mustafa is most helpful and a lovely guy..we cannot wait to return and have passed on the details to lots of friends...so sad to leave.
We just got back from stopping here for 2 weeks. What an amazing Villa this is, from the pool to the roof top it has everything and more. The views from every level are stunning. Mustafa and the owner were only a phone call away if we needed any help with anything like how to work the tv, he was round in five minutes . Villa is 5 minutes from town nice downhill walk. Surrounding area is very nice and peaceful. You get the sun from morning until night. My favourite time was sitting on the roof top at midnight overlooking Kalkan with the lights from town and the stars in the sky and the midnight cruise boats coming back into harbour. Kalkan is a hidden gem a beautiful romantic little town and we will definitely be back and definitely stopping at Villa Tepe.
We holidayed at Villa Tepe during the early August; 2 adults, 2 children and a teenager (18).
Suffice to say we all had a superb time; the villa was perfect, the location ideal and the property manager (Mustafa) bent over backwards to ensure that our stay was perfect.
The villa itself was clean, the pool wonderful - especially in the Turkish heat, the rooms and en suites lovely and the views superb - although we nicknamed the roof terrace the 'oven' for obvious reasons.
One suggestion would be for some basic instructions on how to operate some of the equipment in the house - particularly the oven and the electricity supply (it's very particular about which was the key fob is put in).
Kalkan itself is idyllic - everyone was very friendly, no pushiness as in some resorts. There are literally restaurants everywhere serving delicious food at very reasonable prices (for a Londoner) so we dined out every night.
The only thing to watch out for is the local beach - it's a man-made one and not too good, but with a pool at the villa we spent our days lounging around and relaxing in it.
Overall one of the best holidays we have had in years - I cannot recommend the villa or Kalkan itself highly enough.

Just finishing our 1st.week of 2 in this villa.
All equipment and furnishings are top quality,all electricals are Seimens,which says it all.
On leaving the airport we were collected in a car and the driver (Lewis Hamilton) sped along the dual carriageway at an average speed of 130 kph.( hairy)
When we arrived at the villa Mustafa was waiting for us with the groceries we had ordered and gave us a tour of the villa.Nothing is too much trouble for Mustafa and a small problem we had was professionally dealt with in 5 mins.
The rest of the villa is exactly what it says on the tin.
Fastest internet connection I have ever had.4 levels with views to die for on the top floor with the lovely settees.We have already spent a couple nights up there.
The villa is only a 5 minute walk,all downhill,to the centre of Kalkan and a 1 minute £3 taxi ride back.
Everything is perfect and really looking forward to our 2nd week.
One comment,beware of strange men trying to exchange your partner for a camel.
My camel was lame,thank god I organised Sale or return,not half missing the camel!!
Myself and 5 friends have just arrived home from a superb week in Kalkan.
Villa Tepe (also known as villa Armagan) was perfect for us! The Baransel Group were extremely helpful especially Mustafa who was very attentive to our needs.
It was clean and tidy and had all the facilities we needed. It was in a perfect location with a breathtaking view. The pool area was lovely and relaxing and the rooms were comfortable and clean all with en suits. Can't wait to return again next year!
