Aria is the one of the jewels in the crown of one of the largest private estates on the Lycian Coast. Magnificently proportioned and extravagantly appointed, the equipment and facilities at this property are of a high standing. Space and privacy are yours to enjoy here in abundance and the sweeping views over the countryside to the sea and Kalkan Bay, on offer from so many vantage points inside and out, are breath-taking.

Top of a long list of highlights is surely the extraordinary lower floor bedroom with its own en suite swimming pool and floor to ceiling glass wall!

A large hammam, sauna, air-conditioned gymnasium, infinity-edged pool and Jacuzzi will also vie for your holiday attention. On the estate grounds in the valley below the house there is even a private tennis court at your disposal.

A self-contained suite occupies the entire lower floor of the house where an indoor swimming pool sits alongside the double bed, feasting over the view via vast floor to ceiling windows. A large hammam, sauna, state-of-the-art gymnasium and a kitchenette complete the suite. Upstairs, a further two doubles including one master bedroom with views over the pool, two twins and a single bedroom complete the sleeping arrangements.

Outside, generous paved terraces surround the property. Here, a children’s pool sits alongside the large swimming pool, ideally positioned to absorb the panorama over Kalkan town and the glistening Mediterranean beyond.  
 

A steep path to the tennis court (5/10min walk) and the elevated location mean younger children will need supervision.
Access to the property is along an unmade road that is steep in some places.

Great Things to Do Near Aria

For the biggest market on the Lycian coast

take the journey up to Fethiye and experience an authentic Turkish market. Produce is brought from all over the region - vegetables, spices and, of course, the 'genuine fake' designer goods. In the centre of Fethiye is the fish market, where fresh fish can be chosen from the stalls and cooked at one of the restaurants in the surrounding square - a great place for lunch. Tuesday is the main market day for Fethiye.
 

Explore the Saklikent Gorge

It's the second-largest (20 km long) gorge in Europe, with spectacular scenery and 4 kms of the gorge is walkable. Outside the gorge, restaurants have wooden platforms suspended just above rushing spring waters - great places to relax on Turkish rugs and cushions with a beer. You have to cross the water - beware, it's knee deep and fast flowing. Wear swim shoes - these can be hired if you don't have any.
 

Drive down to the stunning beach of Patara.

It's part of a huge national park, it is a key biodiversity area, rich in birdlife and the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle (caretta caretta). Only about a 15 minute stroll from some of the major ruins, even in the height of the summer it is never crowded. The absence of development and no water sports means that it is always peaceful.
 

A ‘must see’ is the ancient site of Xanthos

It was one of the six principal cities of Lycia and it is one of the most remarkable archaeological sites in Turkey and has been registered in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. Of note are the pillar tombs (unique to Lycia) and the Harpy column tomb with frieze. The 'Harpy Tomb' is so called as it was believed that the winged women figures in the frieze were harpies - monsters from Greek mythology with the head of a woman and the body of a bird.
 

Explore the backstreets of Kalkan

 
Wonderful atmospheric narrow streets that house a mixture of shops, coffee bars, restaurants with traditional overhanging wooden balconies above.  enjoy having a wander around.
 

Stepping down to Kaputas beach

In an unspoilt, idyllic setting, Kaputas Beach, much smaller than Patara, is only accessed by 192 steps down - so make sure you can manage the climb back up at the end of the day!
 

Explore Kas

Enjoy wandering around the narrow cobbled streets of the historic town centre.  They are lined with small shops selling local products.  Look up at the overhanging balconies with their bright and colourful bougainvillaea spilling over.  The main square is the focal point where tables are laid out inviting one and all to enjoy a refreshing drink or delicious meal of fresh, local produce.
 

Canoeing on the Xanthos river

Enjoy a fun day river canoeing on the Xanthos river. You can travel across ancient Lycian lands of lush and tranquil nature. The ride is downstream, so it's not hard going. The journey ends at Patara beach with time for a swim.
 

Enjoy fresh trout in the famous Islamlar restaurants

Islamlar is famous for its traditional trout fishing industry so make sure you sample the local produce.  Just a short drive away.
 

Visit the Lycian sites


at Myra, where you will be able to explore the spectacular Lycian, Greek and Roman ruins of this ancient city, including one of the best preserved amphitheatres and spectacular rock tombs. Entrance to St Nicholas Church is available, but as an optional extra.
