“The Villa on the Hill - a perfect getaway destination for a travelling party”
Reviewed 9 January 2012 for a stay in November 2011

Villas on hills are supposed to be grand – and Villa Tymnessos does not disappoint. This four-storey home perched on the slopes overlooking Kalamar Bay (and the Snake and Mouse Islands of the Mediterranean Sea) provided a comfortable home-away-from-home for our week of relaxing (and a bit of exploring) as summer faded in the tourist-happy town of Kalkan. This usually-bustling town, on the western coast of Turkey, was quietening down after the buzz of summer. The calmness was rather pleasant though, and the weather was still glorious: blue sky and blue sea from every window of the villa.

The villa is within walking distance of the hub of the town and Kalamar Bay (a local launch spot for scuba-diving and kayaking), yet far enough removed from its rush. The house itself is spread over four floors, so there’s also plenty of space to escape the rush of domestic bliss too. Our party of eight was comfortably accommodated: there are three floors with bedrooms and areas for relaxing on all the levels. The best bits of the house: the roof-top terrace offers views to drown a few sundowners by, and the pool soaks up the sun while you laze under the shaded terrace nearby.

The hard part starts when you decide to leave the villa ready to explore the local area. Historical sites, beaches, outdoor activities all vie for attention.

If you meander northwesterly towards Fethiye, you’ll come across Patara – home to a gem of an archaeological site and one of the best beaches in the world (or so it was voted in 1999) that plays host to thousands of nesting turtles in the summer months. I was also surprised to learn that St Nicholas of Myra, the inspiration for the modern-day Santa Claus, was born here a few centuries AD.

If you head south towards Kas, you’ll pass Kaputas Beach, a pebble beach accessed only by over 300 stairs built into the side of the cliff. If the entrance is a bit daunting, be sure you’ll be greeted below by someone ready to offer you fresh fruit and tea.

A bit further on after Kas you’ll find Kekova, a tiny island with a little secret hidden just under the water. In fact, it’s a whole town (named ‘The Underwater City’) that was submerged following an earthquake in the 2nd century.

Once you’ve explored Fethiye and Kas, don’t forget the bays around Kalkan. And there’s no better way than by water. Either on top (in a kayak) or below (on a scuba dive), the sea is as plentiful and exciting as the land in this part of Turkey.

Or simply follow the sun, and enjoy the relaxed, spectacular Turkish coastline. Thanks, Villa Tymnessos for an unforgettable week!
