Maron boasts a wonderful location in a quiet area of Kalamar Bay, just 300 metres from the sea and within a few minutes' walk of a beach club where the crystal clear waters of Kalkan bay are ready to cool you down whilst you enjoy the warm Turkish sunshine.

Stylishly furnished and with all bedrooms enjoying balcony views out to sea, Maron is a comfortable and spacious holiday retreat. Surrounded by attractive planting, the pool terrace and outdoor dining table is the focal point of the villa where guests will enjoy the ever changing sea views and wonderful Mediterranean sunsets. Moving inside, the ground floor living areas are pleasantly furnished in a modern, light style. Three bedrooms on the upper floors offer guests excellent privacy as well as balcony access where a quiet moment and evening drinks can be enjoyed.
 
There are a selection of restaurants and cafes within a 5 minute walk and the centre of Kalkan town (2.5km) is a short drive or a gentle 20 minute walk. Here you will find a wider variety of boutiques and a surprisingly varied selection of restaurants, many situated on attractive bougainvillea clad roof terraces where matchless views come as standard. All along this gorgeously scenic coastline the cuisine is a tempting range of fresh Mediterranean dishes, traditional Turkish favourites, and sumptuous seafood. The picturesque beaches of Kaputas (8km), as well as Patara (18km) are two further coastal highlights. The Patara ruins (17km) are also well worth a visit, dating back to the Byzantine Empire and featuring extensive and impressive archaeological restorations and excavations.

  • * Pool heating may be requested only in April, May and October. Please request at least two days before arrival. The water temperature achieved depends on the ambient conditions so is cooler in low seasons.

Great Things to Do Near Maron

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. Enjoy having a wander around.

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.

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 Kaş. 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!

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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 only 15 minutes 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.

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.
