This luxury detached villa is a successful blend of contemporary and traditional Turkish decor and furnishings It was built as a family home and is exceptionally well equipped. The villa has all the ingredients for a perfect holiday. Situated in an elevated location, with panoramic views over Kalkan and out to sea. Villa Hilal has three double bedrooms all with ensuite marble bathrooms, including a Jacuzzi bath, a further bathroom on the ground floor, a large comfortable lounge with sat TV and internet access, dining area, granite American style kitchen, balconies, and a furnished roof terrace. The luxury also extends outside to its large, furnished pool terrace, 9 metre pool, children's pool, al fresco dining area, stone and gas BBQs and traditional Turkish kosk where you can lounge on cushions and enjoy a few drinks as the sun sets or seek shade from the sun. Villa Hilal is on the hillside overlooking Kalkan and has stunning panoramic views across the town, the bay and the Taurus mountains. It is located on the fringe of Akbel village in an area of Turkish family homes and new contemporary holiday villas. The villa is just a few minutes drive from Kalkan old town, harbour and beach and 5 minutes walk from shops and a local market. The villa accommodates 6 people comfortably. All rooms have beautiful unobstructed sea views. There are marble floors and staircases throughout and attractive concealed lighting in the lounge, which has traditional Turkish rugs and cushions. This villa is particularly suitable for families with young children because of the additional children's pool, although young children should still be supervised outside. The large well furnished pool terrace enjoys day long sunshine and the spectacular views. It has a stone traditional BBQ and a modern gas BBQ. It has a large pergola for shade and has six teak sunbeds, cushions, tables,and parasols. The pool which may be illuminated at night is 9 x 4 metres, with a shallow end of 1.20 metres and a deep end of 1.7 metres. There is also a small child’s pool. For alfresco dining both the pool terrace and the roof terrace have marble topped tables and chairs. An unusual feature is the Turkish “kosk” where you can relax on cushions in traditional style, a perfect place for relaxing with a drink before or after dinner. Below the pool terrace is a small hidden garden with trees and shrubs. Coast/Beach The villa is less than 5 minutes drive from Kalkan's attractive pebble beach. Alternatively, a 15 minute dolmus ride (local minibus service) will take you to beautiful Kaputas beach, or a 20 minute ride takes you to the famous Patara beach with its 18km of white sand. Patara beach, set in a national park, has been voted one of the Med's most beautiful and undiscovered beaches. Olu Deniz beach, the most photographed in Turkey, is around an hour's drive. Close to Patara and a few minutes drive from the villa are the fascinating and historically important remains of ancient Lycian and Roman cities, Letoon and Xanthos. Travel The nearest airport is Dalaman (approx 1.5 hour drive) and flights are direct from the UK. Transfer to and from the airport is usually by private car hire, taxi or minibus. We can help arrange transfers and car hire from Kalkan at competitive prices. Car hire is not essential but is recommended and is readily available in the town. There are also flights to Antalya which is a 3 hour drive. Distances Kalkan town centre, 5 mins drive (2.5km). Kaputas beach, 15 min drive. Patara beach, 20 min drive. Kas, 30 min drive. Fethiye, under 1 hour drive.
