Located 4km above the old port of Kalkan and in a quiet neighbourhood, Roma has a lower floor suite boasting an indoor pool with floor to ceiling glass windows to admire the vista below - a touch of decadence doesn't go amiss from time to time! Much of your time will be spent on the upper floor floating between pool and open plan living areas, however Roma benefits from a second large living area on the lower floor, which adds flexibility for multi-generational families wanting some privacy or the space to relax separately.

Roma is well placed for visiting vibrant Kalkan which is just a ten minute drive. This animated coastal town has no high-rise buildings, excellent amenities, vibrant restaurants and cool café/bars. Whether diving, fishing, sunning or lazing, gulet boat trips abound to the scenic local beaches and islands. There are also popular beach clubs within a short drive including the pretty cove at Kaputas (11km) which is about a 15 minute drive from Roma.

  • The road access to Roma is narrow and steep in places.

Great Things to Do Near Roma

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.
 

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.
 

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!
 

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.
 

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.
 

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!
 

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 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.
 

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.
 

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!
 

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 around 15 minutes away.
