“Excellent accommodation in a simply stunning location”

I can wholeheartedly recommend Swallows rest after spending a blissful 7 nights in Kalkan. The villa is wonderfully appointed with everything you could wish for. The watercooler is of particular note as it saves constantly having to travel to the shops to buy water!

The pool gives welcome respite from the heat and in the evenings, to sit and watch the sun disappear with a glass of your particular poison sitting in the Kosk, is pure bliss! There is a BBQ for those (like me) who want to make use of the local produce and I can honestly say it is not often you BBQ with a view as breathtaking as the one offered by this villa. I would never tire of waking each morning and opening the curtains to see that vista.

Kalkan itself is a bustling little town where old Turkey and new Turkey mix surprisingly well. The old harbour is dominated by modern sleek restaurants and lounges all vying for your custom. Having said that, as they are outdoors, they blend seamlessly with the surroundings. More restaurants than you could ever possibly require are similar in pricing and give good quality food. Particular note should go to Sade where the food was beautifully cooked and service was great. Avoid the Mahal beach club, which despite having one of the best locations I've ever experienced for a restaurant is very over priced and the food quality is poor.

All in all Swallows Rest will definitely be at the top of my list for a return visit to Turkey. I cannot think of a single reason why I would want to try anywhere else !!

We have just spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Swallows Rest . The villa is spacious with everything you could wish for. One of the most useful things was the water cooler in the kitchen - such a great idea. The views are fantastic . We loved everything about this beautiful villa and would love to return.

“Wonderful villa with excellent view!”
Reviewed 12 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had a wonderful time at this spacious villa. We enjoyed the pool and the garden, and the stunning views of the ocean. The pool was nice but it has no shallow part, so it is not suitable for small children. A rental car is almost a must, it takes you easily to the wonderful beaches of Patara and Kaputas. Warm and sunny weather, good food, interesting historic sites and beautiful scenery - what else can you ask for? The only minor disturbance were stray dogs (and cats) who wanted company, since a lot of the other villas were empty due to low season.
