Charming cottage in village near Kalkan. Discover the real Turkey!

The space

A unique cottage with great bucolic charm built in stone and wood in a beautiful village 10 minutes from the coast at Kalkan with sea views.

It is simply furnished and rustic in style with Turkish textiles and wooden floors.

Here you can relax in a peaceful Turkish village but not far from stunning beaches, archaeological sites, markets full of fresh produce, cheese and olives, a range of water sports and diversions or a relaxing time in a beautiful shady garden under the vine.

The cottage has a living room and a simple but well equipped kitchen upstairs made from wood with marble surfaces, taking advantage of the wonderful views and a large thatched balcony overlooking the valley and the sea which is ideal for dining and stays fresh with a slight breeze. It is a renovated old stone house and is generally rustic and traditional.

Downstairs there are two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.

Please note that this is not a newly built villa, but a simple cottage that will appeal to those who enjoy country style living. As you can see by the reviews most people have enjoyed staying here, but please do not book if a luxury apartment is more to your taste as you may not be happy here.

The garden is large and shady with many trees and has chickens and ducks so free range eggs are always available.

The cottage is at 750 metres above sea level and is cooler than the coast in the Summer. It is well located for walking in the Spring and Autumn being situated on the Lycian Way walk made famous by Kate .Clow.

There are several fine restaurants in the village serving trout and delicious fresh produce. There is an ample supply of spring water that you can drink from the tap and the village is always lush and green.

Deborah is an excellent host, she made me feel very welcome during my stay. Deborah was very generous with her time, offering lifts to places and suggestions on where to go. Deborah has created a special place at the Grapevine Cottage and I would thoroughly recommend a stay there.

Just fantastic all round. Deborah is a wonderful lady who has the most fantastic animals (Roxy stole my heart and the dogs are so well behaved and very very funny). What a truly idilic home. So full of charm. It is what a true cottage in Turkey should be (with an artists sprinkle of bonhemium creativity of course). Like all of the correct reviews say on this site, a true home from home. I can't wait to return one day soon. My main foody tip; buy the fresh water trout and then cook it on Deborah's BBQ. It's so so good! TomTom will help you out with any excessive portions.

Grapevine cottage was a truly amazing stay. From the minute we got there, we were greeted by Deborah and felt totally relaxed. The cottage itself is extremely homely with all Deborah's wonderful paintings in each room as well as being so well equipped. Having breakfast and occasionally dinner on the terrace with such an amazing view totally made the visit into the mountains even more worth while. Having the spring water flowing around the gardens and hearing it from every room in the house was so calming and natural just like the entire place, such a gorgeous sound to fall asleep to each night. Deborah's directions to local places and quiet beaches were fantastic and were very totally worth a visit. We loved having Deborah's dogs and other animals come to visit from time to time. A very natural gem in the mountains we wouldn't hesitate to go back to

Deborah’s grapevine cottage is just like a little oasis where one can find peace and calm to relax, but it’s also still in close proximity to the restaurants and beach in Kalkan. For us it was just the ideal place to stay for our holiday in Turkey. The cottage is located in a little village up in the mountains and is a about 15 minutes drive from Kalkan. We were simply charmed by the cottage’s interior and the attention to detail paid to it. The cottage is surrounded by grapevines and a beautiful garden through which a mountain stream runs, it was just divine waking up to the sound of the mountain stream. But most of all we enjoyed being surrounded by Deborah’s colorful collection of animals. Deborah is a very kind and helpful host, who was always happy to give us advice about which local markets or restaurants to go to. We arrived late at night and she had even bought some groceries for us to have for breakfast. All in all we highly recommend staying in Deborah’s grapevine cottage to anyone who likes to stay somewhere away from the tourist places and that still has its own distinct charm.

We had a wonderful stay at Grapevine Cottage. It's extraordinarily beautiful, hidden away in the hills. It's full of character and very comfortable. Deborah is very kind, amusing and helpful.

The Debora’s house is the loveliest place. We traveled with two kids and we loved the village life in the Turkish mountains with the British host. It is safe and friendly. We were surprised that there is no need for AC (it is chilly up there). We drank clear water form mountain springs, and enjoyed organic fruits, vegies. Besides, there are nice authentic restaurants in the village. Village people are open and friendly and we made friends in the local tea room (the kids loved to drink Turkish apple tea under the old trees). The sea is 10 min drive down the hill and there is the National park next door. The roads are fabulous and we easily rented a car in the airport for the whole stay. However, petrol is expensive, we chose a diesel car. We are going to come back in the next summer so, please, do not book the whole summer ;-)

Deborah's cottage is a lovely place to stay and was a highlight of our trip to Turkey. The cottage is beautiful, fully equipped, and in a lovely valley and village. Favorites for me were the sound of running water from the streams, the view down to the ocean from the deck, and the gardens surrounding the house. Deborah was a very kind host and was totally available and accommodating. Deborah stayed in another cabin next door during our visit. Highly recommended.

I am British but lived in Mexico for 20 years in San Cristobal where I started Madre Tierra Restaurant. I currently live in a village near Kalkan in Turkey at Grapevine Cottage, a romantic retreat, which I rent in the summer. I keep lots of animals and birds and like to paint.
