About us


We first visited Turkey in 1999 and immediately fell in love with the country, the people and the lovely climate. We bought our first place, a small garden apartment in Kalkan a year later, and after some fun times there decided to have our own purpose-designed holiday dream home built when we came across a nice plot of land in the nearby area of Kisla, just across the bay from Kalkan town. It’s a slightly quieter location which suits us just fine. We enjoy the tranquil setting knowing that the bustling town of Kalkan is a short water bus ride away. Overseeing the construction, mostly from back here in the UK, was a challenging but very rewarding experience as you can imagine. And now, having retired a few years ago after careers in the medical sector, we are lucky enough to get to enjoy our lovely villa 3 or 4 times a year. But it deserves to be utilised more frequently and we have found great pleasure in letting the property to some really nice people over the years – families, couples, and we’d like nothing more than to entice you along too.
