Charming cottage in village near Kalkan. Discover the real Turkey!
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.
The whole cottage and garden is for you.

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.
