Sister property to Meryem and equally irresistible, Lidya is not only charming, elegant and wonderfully welcoming but also commands the most impressive, far-reaching views to Kalkan, Patara Beach and the iconic Siçan/Fare islands.

Having stood on the expansive pool terrace and balconies we can confidently say it is impossible to do the beauty of the views justice in photographs. Space, comfort and style are found in abundance.

Handmade to the owners’ personal specifications the house staircase, various light fittings and several pieces of furniture, sit atop polished wooden floors, intricately patterned rugs and eye catching mosaic tiling.

Kalkan is only a 15 minute drive downhill however with two restaurants and a mini market within a 20 minute walk this is an oasis from which you will surely struggle to stir.

Great Things to Do Near Lidya

Cross over to Greece

Take the opportunity to visit the closest Greek island to Turkey, Kastolorizo, just 3.5 nautical miles off the coast of Kas. After a short but scenic crossing explore the delights of this quaint Greek fishing village, including the local museum, church and mosque. Wander round the white washed back streets before enjoying a lunch on the harbour front. Don't forget your passport!

Ride 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!

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.

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.

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.

Sticky delights

Try one of the rich, gooey Turkish pastries, rich in honey, raisins, nuts and cinnamon and layered in Filo pastry - along with a Turkish coffee to clear the palate. Kalkan's harbour front is the best place to enjoy this indulgence!

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 right on your doorstep!

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 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.
