Overview

Exquisite top-floor apartment occupies a commanding position right at the top of magical Patara Prince Resort with both sea and Kalkan views. May 23-28, £150; Earlybird 10% off; Long-Stay 15% off (greater discount applies); cheap flights with easyjet!

Designed by one of Turkey's top architects and constructed on white, local stone terraces leading down to the Mediterranean, you won't believe how beautiful Patara Prince Resort is, even when you're there! Situated 1km across the bay from Kalkan (recommended as a destination of choice by the independent, especially for those seeking a romantic vacation) amid abundant tropical gardens and giving direct access to the sea, Patara Prince Resort is unrivalled in this part of the Mediterranean for style and elegance. 'Nothing short of a seaside paradise' (Frommer's Guide).

With stunning sea and Kalkan views from the private, bougainvillea-swathed balcony, inside, this roof-level apartment boasts a wealth of character features including vaulted cedarwood ceiling, bamboo-screened window separating kitchen from living area, atmospheric ceiling fan in bedroom (and mosquito netting at window) and tasteful furnishings throughout.

Fully air-conditioned (there are 2 air-con units, one in the living area and 1 in the bedroom which also switch to provide heating in the cooler months), all mod cons include living area with 2 sofabeds (1 double and the other converts into 2 singles), 26-channel satellite TV, DVD, CD/MP3/USB/SD/MMC player; king-size bed in bedroom, wardrobe with safety-deposit box; washing machine, ironing board and iron, marble worktops with fitted electric hob and mini-oven, kettle and toaster in kitchen; hairdryer in bathroom and 2 cushioned sun loungers on the balcony. A shop which stocks all the essentials you're likely to need is literally a stone's throw away as is an infinity pool (one of 3 pools on the complex), kids' pool, tennis courts and car park.

Location & area

'...you could imagine yourself on the Côte d'Azur without the pretentiousness. Drive along the mountain-backed road to Kas, and you might be touring the Amalfi coast.'The Times.



Kalkan itself is a sophisticated small resort but friendly and completely undeveloped compared to places like Marmaris and Bodrum. English is widely spoken and it's the kind of place you'll want to come back to again and again and again. Kalkan and nearby town Kas were Greek-populated until 1923 and both are renowned for their Greek architecture – wooden balconies, bougainvillea etc. The old town is subject to strict preservation orders so is guaranteed to retain its character. In Kalkan, where there is a roof there is a restaurant and competition has made the town a gastronomic treat. If you've tried all the restaurants on Patara Prince Resort already – there are 3 serving everything from pizza to Turkish and Mediterranean specialities - take the water taxi over the bay to Kalkan town or an economical taxi ride and sample one of the 40 restaurants there. Our favourite is Adam's Restaurant and if you eat there you'll get 10% discount.



Kas, about 12 miles away, is the nearest small town and Greece comes right up to the Turkish mainland here. Kastellorizo, the most easterly of all the Greek Islands – and the setting for Best Foreign Language film Mediterraneo – sits practically in the harbour at Kas and within a mile and a half of the shore. Take a glorious day-trip from Kas which will cost you only 12 euros. Greece's proximity makes it possible to make a stay here a two-country holiday as from Fethiye, 45 miles away, hydrofoils make the 1½ hour crossing to Rhodes (an official entry point into Greece) every weekday in summer too.



It's a little-known fact but there are more Greek and Roman ruins in Turkey than in Greece and Italy put together! Just one such is to be found at nearby Patara –birth-place of Father Christmas and oracle of Apollo - and after which Patara Prince resort is named and indeed modelled! This ruined Roman city guards the approach to a 10-mile long white sand beach, one of the longest anywhere in the Mediterranean and which has recently been featured on BBC1's Holiday programme and topped the Evening Standard's list of Ten Fantastic Summer Beaches! Sun-bathe, swim or go horse-riding there all day long but at night Patara beach is the exclusive preserve of loggerhead turtles who come there to nest.
In ancient, pre-Roman times, the Turquoise Coast from Fethiye round to almost Antalya, was known as Lycia ("Land of Light"). The Lycians' many monuments still dot the entire landscape of the south-west coast of Turkey and the ruins close by at UNESCO World Heritage site, Xanthos – those which weren't removed by Charles Fellowes and taken to the British Museum! – are a must. As is the sunken city at Kekova, reachable only by boat either from Kas or Ucagiz or, better still, charter a boat in the harbour at Kalkan and take a 2-day private cruise in style and at a price which, for the experience, you simply won't believe. Saklikent Gorge (“Hidden Valley”), was only discovered as recently as 18 years ago and is the longest and deepest gorge in Turkey and the second-biggest in Europe! And the Lycian Way, Turkey's only long-distance footpath also passes through Kalkan, Kas and Finike as well as many ancient sites on its spectacular route through the mountains and along the coastline of south-west Turkey, following the line of Roman and Ottoman roads, mule tracks and nomad trails.



Public transport is plentiful in this part of Turkey and remarkably good value - 3YTL (£1) will take you all 12 miles along the glorious road to Kas – listed as one of the Top Ten most beautiful coastline drives in the world. If you'd rather hire your own car then we can arrange the best rates for you in Kalkan. Dalaman is the nearest airport 75 miles away and we can also set up transfers for you at last year's prices! Patara Prince is a holiday home to international politicians and celebrities and you will also feel safe in the knowledge that the resort has 24-hour security.



Swimming, sun-bathing, sailing, scenery, walking, history – we believe this part of Turkey has it all. Come and see it for yourself now while it's still so unspoilt – you won't be disappointed. It's not a holiday – it's heaven!
