We holidayed at Villa Tepe during the early August; 2 adults, 2 children and a teenager (18).
Suffice to say we all had a superb time; the villa was perfect, the location ideal and the property manager (Mustafa) bent over backwards to ensure that our stay was perfect.
The villa itself was clean, the pool wonderful - especially in the Turkish heat, the rooms and en suites lovely and the views superb - although we nicknamed the roof terrace the 'oven' for obvious reasons.
One suggestion would be for some basic instructions on how to operate some of the equipment in the house - particularly the oven and the electricity supply (it's very particular about which was the key fob is put in).
Kalkan itself is idyllic - everyone was very friendly, no pushiness as in some resorts. There are literally restaurants everywhere serving delicious food at very reasonable prices (for a Londoner) so we dined out every night.
The only thing to watch out for is the local beach - it's a man-made one and not too good, but with a pool at the villa we spent our days lounging around and relaxing in it.
Overall one of the best holidays we have had in years - I cannot recommend the villa or Kalkan itself highly enough.

Just finishing our 1st.week of 2 in this villa.
All equipment and furnishings are top quality,all electricals are Seimens,which says it all.
On leaving the airport we were collected in a car and the driver (Lewis Hamilton) sped along the dual carriageway at an average speed of 130 kph.( hairy)
When we arrived at the villa Mustafa was waiting for us with the groceries we had ordered and gave us a tour of the villa.Nothing is too much trouble for Mustafa and a small problem we had was professionally dealt with in 5 mins.
The rest of the villa is exactly what it says on the tin.
Fastest internet connection I have ever had.4 levels with views to die for on the top floor with the lovely settees.We have already spent a couple nights up there.
The villa is only a 5 minute walk,all downhill,to the centre of Kalkan and a 1 minute £3 taxi ride back.
Everything is perfect and really looking forward to our 2nd week.
One comment,beware of strange men trying to exchange your partner for a camel.
My camel was lame,thank god I organised Sale or return,not half missing the camel!!
Myself and 5 friends have just arrived home from a superb week in Kalkan.
Villa Tepe (also known as villa Armagan) was perfect for us! The Baransel Group were extremely helpful especially Mustafa who was very attentive to our needs.
It was clean and tidy and had all the facilities we needed. It was in a perfect location with a breathtaking view. The pool area was lovely and relaxing and the rooms were comfortable and clean all with en suits. Can't wait to return again next year!
We stayed at Villa Tepe for a week at the beginning of June. A family holiday for 6 of us, to celebrate my Dads 60th. Age range from 25-60 years.
The Villa itself was beautiful, very well equipped, and the views were outstanding.
Mustafa was most helpful with correspondence before and during the holiday, he kindly arranged our airport transfers. We had a small problem with the pool, I emailed him about this and it was sorted within the day, great!
The Villa is situated up a VERY steep hill, however with this came the beautiful views from each balcony and the roof terrace, which more than made up for it!!
We enjoyed meals at a number of restaurants including Korsan, Salt and Pepper and spent most days at the Indigo Beach Bar.
We also took advantage of the amazing fresh fruit and veg from the green grocer and some meat from the butcher for our own barbecue!!
I would thoroughly recommend Villa Tepe, and I would be happy to return. Perhaps a small welcome package, including some tea/coffee and toilet roll would have made the first night a bit more comfortable?
All in all a fantastic holiday - I'm sure we'll be back!!
