To put it simply, we just could not resist adding this gorgeous two bedroom apartment to our Turkey portfolio. Lebam is a rather special place, offering guests a wonderful level of quality, remarkable range of facilities and a location that is only a five minute drive downhill (or about a 20 minute walk) from the vibrant shops, bars and restaurants of Kalkan itself.

Clever design sees the wonderfully appealing accommodation flowing easily over two privately interconnected floors, each one self-contained, making Lebam a perfect choice for a couple, or even two separate individuals/couples who can holiday together whilst still enjoying their own independent space and privacy.

With lovely décor, good living space, a beautifully appointed double bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen on each floor there is so much to recommend. The private sauna and games room will certainly vie for your attention with the lovely rooftop sun terrace, home to a barbecue, shaded dining area and far-reaching sea views. Here, the private pool also comes with an option to set the water ‘flowing’ from one side to the other creating a gentle current to swim against if desired.

Home to numerous colourful shops, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants (at both street and roof level!), Kalkan is a delightfully vibrant mix of old and new with various ‘beach clubs’, a lively marina and small sandy beach bordering the atmospheric old quarter of the town. Just a ten minute drive away the picturesque beach of Kaputas, as well as Patara (20 mins) are two of the coastal highlights. A breathtakingly scenic coastal drive south will bring you to the picture-postcard harbour town of Kas in less than half an hour.

Great Things to Do Near Lebam

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.

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.

Explore the back streets of Kalkan

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

Mountain Trekking

Trekking in the mountains behind Kas is where you will find some of the most beautiful scenery in the Taurus range.  Below the tree line and winter snow are the yayla (highland plateaus).  Trek through canyons, gorges and passes - many of these gorges were important trade routes, some still in use, some completely forgotten, though all at one time jealously guarded.

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 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.

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. It's just a short drive away.

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.

Visit the nearby town of Kas

Less than an hour's drive away, enjoy the laid back charm of Kas as an alternative to the busier atmosphere of Kalkan.  This small fishing village at the foot of the Taurus mountains retains an unhurried ambience.

Rise horses through the sand dunes of Patara

There are stables within the Patara National Park that cater for riders and non-riders of all ages and ability.  Due to the strict conservation laws there is not a building to be seen, which is what makes this beach so special - endless golden sands, surrounded by nature, so it's perfect for an early morning ride enjoying the beautiful scenery!

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.
