Have just returned from a week in beautiful Kalkan . We booked our accommodation through Olive tree . We were a large party of 9 and Debbie took the time to help us source the right villa to suit our needs and Villa Vanilla fitted the bill perfectly . Having stayed in Kalkan the previous year we knew how hilly it was and this villa situated on Kalamar road was closer to the old town and harbour area and an easier walk . Along Kalamar road itself there were several really nice bars which you could stop off in as you walked along in the evenings and several restaurants and supermarkets within a couple of minutes of the villa .
The villa itself was well set out , spacious and with beautiful views from the terraces . Pool was lovely and attracted the sun the whole day .
Transfers from the airport , arranged by Olive tree were seamless in a very nice comfortable minibus and very reasonable between 9 of us .
We will be back in Kalkan again without a doubt and would stay in Villa vanilla again .
“Spacious and luxurious made a happy, memorable holiday”

This property had a real wow factor-a large open plan kitchen/living area, well equipped and decorated. All good sized bedrooms, scrummy marble bathrooms; a large terrace with loads of loungers, so you could swim in the infinity pool with a view towards the sea.3 of the bedrooms had balconies-the top bedroom's was big enough for everyone to gather with drinks in the evening and watch the town below. Sitting on top of a hill, there were bars and restaurants close by, or a pleasant walk down to the old town for dinner. A beach club in the other direction down a steep hill, but doable. Comfy, ontime airport transfers arranged by olive tree travel.3 families stayed together and all loved the holiday and Kalkan.

I cannot fault either this villa or Debbie Warwick of Olive Tree Travel who organised everything for us. Transfer from the airport was prompt and stylish. The villa was spotless and exactly as we had wanted. Elevated, quiet with view to the bay and walkable to the old town. A real bonus were two restaurants on our doorstep (100 yards) in cafes aqua and Vita as well as a mini market. The pool was gin clear and cleaned every morning, the air-conditioning purred away and kept us cool from the 40 degrees heat. The kitchen was well equipped although the restaurants were so cheap we ate out every night. A real bonus were the bathrooms. Being 6'4" I do appreciate large showers with a limitless supply of hot water at pressure. And the beds were comfy too ! We will be back. Thank you Olive Tree Travel.
“Great villa and great back up from Olive Tree Travel yet again !”

Sadly back to work after enjoying another great week in Villa Vanilla Kalkan . This is the second time using villas booked with Debbie Warrick at Olive Tree Travel and on both occasions we have experienced fabulous new and contemporary well appointed villas in good locations. Well done to Debbie and her team.

We have just returned from a great holiday in Kalkan Turkey organised by Debbie of Olive Tree Travel who we would recommend highly and would have no hesitation in using again.
We stayed in Villa Vanilla, a lovely spacious villa in a good position,near to local stores and restaurants with fabulous views over Kalamar Bay and with an easy walk down into town.The villa is well equipped with everything you could need and with a lovely big pool, sun loungers etc.
We had our one year old grandson with us and Debbie arranged all the extra bits for us including high chair, cot etc.
The service we received from planning our holiday, and from arrival to departure was excellent with every query and request being attended to immediately.
One of our party had a mix up at baggage reclaim at Dalaman airport which was sorted out very quickly by our local rep. Omer.
Over all we are very impressed, love Kalkan and can't wait to go again.

We booked through Olive Tree Travel and felt in safe hands. Our chosen villa, Kalamar, suited our needs perfectly - a stunning villa close to the old town yet far enough away to be quiet at night. The infinity pool was a luxury that kept us from seeking trips to fill our days and the fully air conditioned rooms gave us respite from the heat when we needed it. The layout or the villa meant that our party of ten were afforded privacy when required - which for teenagers and older, was brilliant. All in all a succesful holiday, a super villa and an excellent service from Olive Tree Travel.
