Queen is a wonderfully located property within walking distance of Kalkan Old Town, where the quality shines through in all rooms. Interiors are light and airy with marble floors and tasteful furnishings as well as a vaulted ceiling in one upstairs bedroom. Add to this a sunny infinity edge pool, the beautiful first floor sea views and close proximity of the coast and restaurants.

Queen is located adjacent to sister properties Lykia View  to one side, and Royale behind - all of a similarly high stature. The villa sits in a peaceful, select enclave which is one of Kalkan’s most sought after locations largely because of the two beach clubs, a watersports facility and the many atmospheric harbour side restaurants of Kalkan Old Town that are all within walking distance.

A car is not essential here which makes Queen an easy and relaxing holiday villa destination.

Great Things to Do Near Queen

Explore the backstreets 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.

Visit the nearby town of Kas

 Arpound half an hour's drive from Kalkan, enjoy the  charm of Kas as an alternative to the more local Kalkan.  A  modern seaside town which occupies the site of ancient Antiphellos, some ruins are still visible today.  The Lycian Way, a marked trail, passes by the town.

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 cost.

Mountain Trekking

Trekking in the Taurus mountains is where you will find some of the most beautiful scenery. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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 from Kalkan.
