We are sorry, this accommodation is not available to book at the moment
Villa Defne has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 6 persons sleep capacity and it is located at Kalkan’s Islamlar Village. We tried to use mostly natural materials when we were designing and building it. It has two floors and second floor is completetly wood and it is a very unique experience to wake up with birds’ songs in the morning in these rooms. It is a great location to have a holiday which is far away from crowd and pollution of your city. A design in harmony with nature, a garden with fully fruit trees, and charming atmosphere with amazing sea, nature, mountain views waits you in Kalkan Villa Defne for a memorable holiday.
At all cost we tried to avoid damaging nature’s beauty of great Islamlar Valley while we were building Kalkan Villa Defne. In the process we particularly tried to build and situate the villa around the natural landscape to avoid cutting trees and disrupting the natural beauty of the Valley. We truly believe that nature, love and peace in the world is the meaning of life! Being part of nature means true relaxation and tranquility and it is for this reason we have preserved the landscape around our Villa as well as using only natural materials indoor such as wood floors & ceilings contrasted by water based paintings, travertine natural marbles and other elements throughout the Villa to ensure that your stay at the Villa will be as close to nature as possible indoor & outdoor for your full relaxation and piece of mind!

Sports & natureOne of the world’s most famous water sports areas is Kalkan’s Incomparable underwater world. The most important sport, with professional trainers, is diving. The special regional climate allows diving in the bays around Kalkan, for nine months of the year, where underwater life and sunken ancient relics like Sakarya Boat, Duchess of York, and an uncovered sunken boat of the Byzantine era, which was found in the summer months of 2011 by sport divers, can be explored. Geographically surrounded by three mountains, Kalkan has the ability to offer paragliding. From the mountains around Kalkan, the entire area of the town can be enjoyed from gliding parachutes. The prevalent thermal winds fill the parachutes, making this sport possible. From a 1,050m high platform, the descent can last between 15 to 25 minutes, depending upon the weather conditions. Canoeing and rafting can be enjoyed on the Esen River, just 30 minutes away from Kalkan by road. Also, water sports like kayaking, jet skiing, waterskiing and ringos etc. are provided by professional water sport businesses in Kalkan. Additionally, Kalkan offers Karate courses (2 Shihan Level Instructors are living in Kalkan), dancing etc. In the Centre of the town there is also an artificial football pitch, where games can be played until late at night, and for fitness training there is a gym. Biking and hiking tours are offered along the Lycian Way including villages like Saribelen, Firnaz and Bezirgan. For relaxation, several Turkish Baths (Hamam) can be found where massages, foam baths etc. can be enjoyed.
Nightlife infoThough a small place, Kalkan never fails to surprise you and once you are here you will be amazed at the variety of entertainment it can offer. By night Kalkan is equally exciting with a host of things to do. A leisurely walk by the harbor is equally tempting as visiting the numerous cafes and bars scattered around the town. Many bars provide live performances like gypsy bands, jazz bars and dancing bars as well. There are discotheques too if you want to boogey the night away.
Culture and history infoKalkan, located on the lands between Antalya and Fethiye, where the Lycian civilization existed over 3,000 years ago, does not seem to have been a place of settlement in antiquity. lt is believed that Kalkan was settled by the merchants who came from the nearby island of Megistis about 150 – 200 years ago. Kalkan was a safe harbour for the sailors throughout history. For this reason, it kept its reputation as a trading point for agricultural and forestry products, coming from the Elmali-Gombe-Bezirgan regions. The merchandise coming to the harbor was transported to the inlands (Elmali, Xantos) by camels. Kalkan was a harbour where the trading of materials like coal, silk, olive oilwine, cotton, grain, sesame, flour, grape was big business. ln 1923, following the Exchange period, some local people left Kalkan and the population decreased. However, a steady flow of people coming from the villages around, revitalized Kalkan, and after the 1970′s, with the opening of the Antalya road, maritime trade came to an end. Following the development of tourism, which brought lots of foreign nationals, some of whom eventually settled in Kalkan, various new sectors and branches of commerce developed. Kalkan was an old Greek fishing town until the 1920s, with the name of “Kalamaki”. The former church of this town is now being used as a mosque. The old part of the town extending towards the surrounding mountains, is a conservation area and called “Koyici”. The districts of Kalamar is in the west, Komurluk and Kisla are in the east and Kiziltas is at the north end of the town. At the beginning of the 20th century Kalkan started to expand. According to a report from the year 1915 there were 17 restaurants, one locksmith and a tailor’s shop. First local elections were held in 1928 and the elementary school was constructed in 1937. Atter the First World War and during the Turkish War of lndependance, based on the Exchange Agreement made between Turkey and Greece, in 1921 all of the Greeks in town emigrated to Greece. ln spite of all the transformations, the old traditions still exist. The local people in the mountain village of Bezirgan spend the summer months there, and come down to Kalkan in winter months. It is said that the historian Herodotus, who lived about 2,300 years ago, referred to Kalkan as “THE PLACE NEAREST T0 THE STARS”.
