“Unbeatable luxury accommodation for the whole family”

We visited Gemma Lycia in August 2015. While we understood it had been hotter in July, temperatures while we were there reached 41 degrees C. It was our first trip to Kalkan and my husband and I went with my parents, our daughter and her husband and our grandchildren (6 and 4) to celebrate my 50th Birthday. The information provided by the owner, Lena, in advance of our trip was incredibly comprehensive and accurate and really helped us to get our bearings in the villa and Kalkan quickly.

There can be no disappointments with this villa (or Kalkan which is amazing!). It was perfect for us in every way. It is very well located (short walk into Kalkan and taxi ‘hop’ back (uphill) at a cost of 10.5 Lire (about £2.50). The area is quiet with absolutely incredible views (day and night) across the bay towards Kalkan old town. The accommodation is incredibly spacious, immaculately finished and well laid out for an extended family like us or a group of more than one family. To help appreciate the layout: my husband and I used the upper floor (two double rooms) with my parents and had a good size landing sitting room on that level between us with a balcony all the way around accessed from all three areas. Our daughter and her family used the lower ground floor which had a huge sitting room with TV etc. and its own big outdoor terrace area with comfy seating. Because the two children shared a twin room, there was a spare twin room on this level and a large sofa in the sitting room would accommodate another couple whilst hardly encroaching on the space! The laundry on this floor also meant that our daughter stayed on top of her washing and took everything home clean! There was an abundance of towels and spare sheets available if needed (although of course linen was refreshed for us twice each week). The ground floor (another massive area) includes a large, very well stocked kitchen (we were able to fill the dishwasher and still have plenty of cutlery and plates left to use), a sitting area and large dining table and chairs. An additional toilet on the ground floor provided quick access from the main terrace. The villa air conditioning kept us perfectly comfortable when we needed to escape the sun.

We were able to use the outside space all day because of access to shade at all times. There were 10 sunbeds and 12 chairs around a huge outside table (which can be separated). The pool is a fantastic size and we were often all in it together with no problem at all. Our grandchildren can swim but they wore little flotation jackets which meant we could relax because the entire pool was out of their depth. The terrace floor does not get too hot in the sun. The outdoor kitchen and seating area is at the far end of the terrace and this provided a great space in the evenings with the fridge constantly stocked with the local beer (Efes) and the stone BBQ used on several occasions.

The entire family with its diverse needs enjoyed everything about this villa (with the help of Ali and his staff) and we will definitely revisit.

“Fantastic villa for all”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this Villa. What an amazing villa in an amazing place. Ali and his team could not do enough for us even allowing us to stay in the villa until pick up time at 6pm on departure day despite having to clean around us! Ali delivered fresh bread and water each morning and nothing was too much trouble even when we explained we had 3 further families visiting us from their respective villas meaning there were 25 of us on one day. The villa was clean as was the pool area and Kalkan itself is a beautiful friendly place. Our group consisted of 4 adults, 8 children (7 of whom were teenage girls). The lay out meant we all had our own space when required. A truly amazing holiday. Cannot recommend this villa enough.
