Amazing villa. Very spacious, clean and extremely well equipped. Air conditioning a godsend as was the water fountain - cold water always readily available!! Close to Kalkan town centre but always cheap cabs available if you don't want a walk back up the hill - we never bothered - it was one way of using up a few calories after dining in one of the numerous restaurants down by the harbour. Didn't have one bad meal in two weeks. Tom (pool man - daily visit) and Maria (cleaned the villa midway through our stay) were friendly but not at all intrusive. Pool is a great size and very clean. Couldn't fault anything. We enjoyed ourselves so much have just booked for 2015!

“Excellent villa, everything we needed.”
Great villa, lovely pool, close to food shops, restaurants and beaches. Easy to spend a day around the pool with a BBQ in the evening. Very helpful owner and good communication meant that the holiday ran smoothly.
Enjoyed boat and canoe trips. Daughter did a diving coarse from harbour.

We have visited Kalkan many times and this is one of the best villas we have stayed in.

“Our 4th Stay at Poppy is already booked”
Our 4th stay at poppy is already booked, a villa we can thoroughly recommend. The villa is very well maintained and equipped with everything you could wish for. Stunning views, a lovely pool where we enjoy late night swims when the pool is beautifully lit and the water warm. Outside sun loungers, umbrellas and BBQ ensure we have everything we need. The villa is in a lovely location close to the town and harbour near lovely restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. First class service by Elaine & Lorraine who arrange our transfers and answer any questions we may have. We enjoy our walk to and from the villa, Kalkan is hilly but taxis are cheap and plentiful for those evenings when we overindulge! Everything about holidaying here is wonderful and relaxing. Kalkan is beautiful, we adore the locals and the laid back atmosphere. This has been our secret destination that we're sharing with you, so you too can indulge.

“Fabulous holiday at Poppy Villa".
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Poppy Villa. The villa is in a good location, clean and well maintained , with every need catered for. A 5 minutes walk downhill brings you to the lovely restaurants of Kalkan,and a further 5 minutes brings you to the harbour. I would definitely recommend this villa,and am sure we will make a return visit. Our favourite restaurants included Kaya, Kosk, The Olive Garden, Trio and Cafe Zula. We spent a day at sea with Capt Abdi on his boat which was a lovely experience,stopping at various bays and swimming in the clear blue sea,and then enjoying a lovely lunch cooked "on board". A visit to the Thursday market is also a must. You will not be disappointed-Enjoy!

We have visited Kalkan many times and this is one of the best villas we have stayed in. The villa was clean on arrival , staff finishing off when we arrived, but everything was clean, tidy and outside space excellent.
I must say the outside area is very nice - pool excellent, with a shallow end which was a must for us with a youngster, and all the shades and umbrellas in good condition. View is great from the villa and we were not overlooked.
The villa itself is very comfortable - nice kitchen with mod cons , good beds and the shutters on the windows helped with making sure our son didn't get out of bed too early !
We enjoyed the use of the books and games - Monopoly played many an evening after a meal out in the village.
The walk/stroll into the village was fine - Kalkan is hilly, but as transport/taxis are cheap and plentiful not an issue for us.
The village is still as lovely as ever and we just hope it remains so. Restaurants a plenty and our favourites were The Alternatif, and The Olive Garden. There are many places to visit - Patara beach, Tlos, Letoon, Saklikent Gorge - all excellent and we had a great time going to the Gorge on a jeep safari - included in the trip was a mud bath near to the gorge, which was amazing .
I would recommend this villa to family and friends - we wanted to book again this year but the summer weeks had already gone!

“4 thumbs way up from my 2 sons!”
I would thoroughly recommend this villa. It has everything you could need when you are away from home. A very spacious and clean villa, pool and surrounding area. Some very homely touches with ornaments, photos of the owner and their families and a great little book case where you can exchange your read paperbacks for others. Lots of information in the villa about the area and recommended restaurants etc. We only did two weeks worth of the local restaurants so really need to return to do a lot more. The owners kept you well informed of everything and even called upon our return to check everything was ok. Thoroughly recommend.
