Having been a previous visitor to Kalkan and having fallen in love with the place and another villa, I was nervous booking Villa Defne in case it didn't live up to my very high expectations....I had absolutely nothing to worry about!
Beautiful, bright, modern and luxurious inside and out with top quality marble and fittings everywhere, and, with floor to ceiling, panoramic windows in every room, the view of the whole bay, the town and the amazing sunsets were truly spectacular and something you never tire of. Lying in bed with the lights off, seeing the bay and the star-filled sky is the perfect way to fall asleep. The additional benefit (regulars to Kalkan will appreciate this) is that there are only a limited number of steps down to the villa and, if you don't feel like the 20 minute (very pleasant and reasonably level!) walk into town, the taxi's are prompt and very reasonably priced.
I booked through Olive Tree travel who were superb. Omar looked after us (I took three friends with me) superbly and arranged all of the food shopping (and wine, water etc.) on demand and had it delivered to the door for a very reasonable price. As our flight arrived late, we had arranged meze to be waiting when we arrived and a meal delivered before we left for our flight, which were both amazing.
All of the bedrooms are very spacious and have lovely marble bathrooms (even these are glass-fronted, so you can still see the view....it's ok, no-one can see in!). Some have balconies and all are air-conditioned with plenty of storage and cupboards.
So, a few tips.....
A private transfer from and to the airport is well worth the money, especially as it's not very expensive if there are a few of you in your party.
Believe the hype on the 'net about not exchanging more sterling than enough to see you through a day or so. The actual exchange rate I was able to get in the UK was 3.19, but many places there accept sterling and the worst rate I saw in town was 3.46 with no commission!
If jet-ski thrills are something you would like, then, unlike Europe where you need a licence, the skis are not the best and it's very expensive, you can hire a very powerful (they can reach over 100km per hour, so you have been warned!....start slowly with the accelerator), 2 person jet-ski at a very reasonable rate. One of my friends hired for a full hour at £90 and he came back totally exhilarated from investigating the entire bay and even out to the nearby islands. Just passed the car park in the centre of town.
I need to be careful here, but I strongly suggest that you buy provisions from outlets in Kalkan town (or the big supermarkets out of town) and resist using any supermarkets close to the villa. I'll say no more than that!
So, with luxury, air-conditioned space inside and multiple sunny/shady areas for eating, lounging or swimming in the lovely infinity pool staring at the bay, and close to all of the bright lights of the town, Villa Defne is a fantastic place to be for either chilled relaxation or the best of the Kalkan restaurants and bars.
I/we will be back!

We have had a wonderful time in Kalkan and were very impressed by Villa Defne and the service provided by Olive Tree Travel. We have never been to Turkey before and found the people of Kalkan charming and friendly and the restaurants were superb. The villa was absolutely incredible, it was hard to drag ourselves away at the end of the stay but the memory of the views will help sustain us through many a cold month in the UK! Abi transport were great too; we weren't the easiest of holidaymakers with people arriving and leaving at different times, but all the transfers went smoothly.
We will certainly come back to Kalkan in the future and won't hesitate to get in touch with Debbie at Olive Tree Travel to help with the organisation.

We had an amazing time at Villa Defne and in Kalkan.
We would like to thank you for all your help and attention to detail - that made our holiday so perfect - from the original booking, to the transfers and the food on arrival. The villa was absolutely stunning and met all our expectations. It was a beautiful place to relax and enjoy. The views from all of the rooms was breathtaking and the design of the villa made the most of it. I think it's one of the best villas and views we've had the pleasure to wake up to!
Our transfers with abi Tours were perfect and the vehicles immaculate and the staff were so friendly and professional. We would also like to thank and recommend Yousef ay from the local taxi company who, along with his friend Baris, looked after us for the 2 weeks we were there. They were there anytime we needed them and couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Even packing bags for us at the supermarket! We felt as if they were our own personal chauffeurs!
Your local rep Omer was also so helpful and friendly, organising any trips we wanted and also at the end of the phone when we needed things sorted in the villa - liaising with the maintenance company. ( the air-conditioning wasn't working in one of the rooms when we arrived and one of the living room blinds fell down on the first night!).
In fact everything was perfect - and the town of Kalkan was stunning, full of great restaurants ( highlights Coursan Mezze, Kalamaki, Nar and Kleo Bar) and super friendly people.
I would definitely recommend Olive Tree Travel and if we go back to Kalkan I would come to Olive Tree first, without hesitation.
Many thanks once again - just sad it's over!
Best wishes for a successful year and future for Olive Tree.

I am so glad Olive Tree Travel arranged everything for us; the transfers, car seats for my three children, meal on arrival & Debbie's immediate help via email to any concerns or questions we had whilst on our well-deserved holiday made us all feel very well looked after. The Villa Defne is an incredible place to stay, we were instantly happy as soon as we arrived. Between the four of us adults we each have our 'issues' let's say but it was quite simply perfect. My children were all safe & happy & I felt it was as child-friendly' as such a beautiful villa can be (having tried 'child-friendly villas' we prefer to be attentive & vigilant around the pool rather than have huge barricades obstructing the way). The cleaners were swift, unobtrusive & friendly & the twice weekly clean was thoroughly appreciated. The standard of everything was exactly what you promised & we all had an amazing time. We were already planning our return to Kalkan whilst still on this holiday.
