Stunning views and spacious villa
We had a fabulous holiday at this villa - stunning views from the balcony, which were enjoyed morning and evening watching the sunset. Great service from Billy who arranged airport transfers and gave great advice on days out and taxis, etc. Steep slope to villa but we walked down to sea and pools and a shuttle bus service made an easy return to the villa! Kalkan is truly stunning, and this villa in a great location to boat, walk or taxi to the town. Lovely pools, fantastic sea platforms and we loved snorkelling with a total of 5 loggerhead turtles during our stay. A gulet boat trip not to be missed either, plus fun at Saklikent Gorge. The whole family loved it, and we will certainly be returning to Turkey. Lovely people and a stunning place. Highly recommend!

Fabulous villa with beautiful views over Kalkan bay.
This is a well maintained and well equipped property in a great location. The view from the large patio/balcony is amazing, probably the best I have had from a villa or hotel room. The Patara Prince resort on which the villa is located is a lovely place and only a couple of minutes from beautiful Kalkan by taxi or water taxi. We will certainly come back at some point.

Tranquil and idyllic
A beautiful villa, sympathetically decorated with stunning views over the bay. A fabulous master bedroom with jacuzzi bath, a generous double and a small single catered for my family allowing each of them their own space! The large open plan living area offered spectacular views, particularly of the sunset and a nice space to unwind and socialise. The walk down to the pools and the sea consists of a considerable number of stone steps but there is the mini bus on hand if you do not fancy the walk down or up. The resort is enchanting with lush landscaping everywhere. If you like to be waited on hand and foot then the adult pool offers a level of unexpected luxury! Both the adult and the family pool are salt water, so if you prefer you can use the pool at the top of the resort, a couple of minutes walk from the villa, which is chlorinated. We made full use of the tennis courts throughout our stay and were able to cool off at the adjacent pool. The tranquility of the villa and the entire resort made the holiday completely relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable.

Wonderful apartment, great location and that terrace! The apartment was everything we hoped for - clean, spacious and tastefully done. Drinks and dinner on the terrace after a relaxing day and some of the more adventurous days is a lovely way to end the day watching the sunset across the Kalkan Bay.
Nigel was super helpful, friendly and most of all organised. All instructions were clear and he made the process seamless. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a wonderful country.

Fabulous penthouse apartment with stunning views.
Villa Manzara is in a fabulous location with stunning views overlooking Kalkan and the bay. It's position in Patara Prince Resort allows for the use of excellent facilities but it is not too far to walk into Kalkan if you wish. The welcome pack supplied was amazing and more than adequate to see you through the first couple of days. This was our 4th visit to Kalkan and would definitely plan to stay here on our return in the future.

Great holiday apartment
From the moment we arrived everything was ready for us...clean, well equipped and a very comprehensive and generous welcome pack. The apartment is very well sited for the site bus and taxis into town which we found essential. Our transfers were carried out by Mediterani who charged a reasonable £55 each way and have an office in the centre of Kalkan .This was our 4th visit over 30yrs to the area and everything is just as good...food, friendly locals, beautiful scenery. Patara is a well run resort with excellent facilities and combined with the stunning views from the apartments large terrace all combined to make it in our opinion the perfect holiday destination. Well done to the caring owners Nigel and Jan.
A truly luxury villa in a wonderful location! Very clean and well maintained villa with stunning views over Kalkan Bay. Large outdoor terraced area was a wonderful way to spend the warm summer evenings . Beautiful master bedroom with panoramic views and luxurious bathroom. Well equipped kitchen and spacious lounge/dining area. The resort itself offers beautiful, mature, well maintained gardens and beautiful swimming pools, tennis, spa and small shop.
The real gem of this resort though is the direct sea access with stunning platforms for private sunbathing and swimming. Kalkan itself is a wonderful vibrant fishing town with excellent restaurants, a beautiful harbour and friendly locals . We will definitely be back!

A wonderful experience
This villa is a real gem. Luxurious but homely and the views are incredible. Lovely decor and very spacious. The attention to detail is wonderful and the owners have thought about all the little things too like providing a cool box for days out, rucksacks and guide books.
The resort was beautiful and we loved the infinity pool which was only a very short walk from the villa, as was the shop. The position of the villa is perfect. The courtesy shuttle bus which takes you to the pool area at the bottom stops right outside. Walking into Kalkan only took 20 minutes.
Arriving at 10pm, the welcome hamper was much appreciated, as was having a local contact on hand, always helpful and willing to offer ideas of places and restaurants to visit. Kalkan Manzara Villa is a perfect base for exploring this area.
We were a family of 4 with two sons aged 10 and 13 and they loved it too. We were contacted before we left to talk things through which was thoughtful and reassuring and we would thoroughly recommend staying here

The apartment has the most wonderful view. Everything is there for you and the basket of supplies was amazing and plentiful. The shower was a pleasure so much space. We have been to Kalkan on several occasions and think the flat was the best so far. The resort was great and the courtesy a blessing after a long day relaxing at the pool.
“Wow - what a fantastic place for a holiday”
“A luxurious home from home with everything you could ask for and more” Having stayed at Patara Prince several times before, we now feel we have found the best. Kalkan Manzara's Villa 56, is beautifully renovated unlike others, traditional features, super king ensuite master bed, a relaxing spa bubble bath with views out to sea, a body jet shower and lovely stone fireplaces. If you have had enough of making do visit Kalkan Manzara you will not be disappointed.
“Wow - what a fantastic place for a holiday” This villa is lovely. So spacious, has a clean, bright and modern interior and there are wonderful views over the bay towards Kalkan with the mountains behind. We love it there and will be going for the fifth time later this year. "Guaranteed to have a superb sunny holiday” Beautiful villa well equipped. Weather was fantastic. All mod cons in accommodation and full air con.
Nigel and Jan have made this a home from home!

This is our first time in Kalkan. The Kalkan Manzara’s Penthouse was absolutely beautiful as was the location. We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful paradise and will be returning very soon.

Great apartment, fabulous spot
The apartment is great. Well equipped kitchen that far surpasses what you normally find in a holiday apartment, and lovely balcony that is a real suntrap and has the most fabulous view of Kalkan bay. Kalkan is a stunning spot and the apartment is at the very top of the Patara Prince resort which is a very peaceful place even though it's huge, so you have access to the beach club below, some very nice pools and best of all, the sea.
It's quite a hike back up the hill to the apartment from the beach club so if you don't like stairs this place may not be for you. Much needed air con was available, wifi and a washing machine. The welcome pack was truly great with wine, beer, bread, butter and some fruit and veg. High recommend this place.
Our first trip to Kalkan and what a wonderful place. We had such a wonderful holiday made extra special to stay at the Manzara: Luxury Villa & Penthouse Apartment. What a stunning view from the apartment, the pictures can't capture this you have to see it. The apartment is very comfortable and caters for all you could need - a home away from home.
Nigel and Jan from the initial contact right through to our return home were fantastic ensuring our stay all went well. The welcome pack was a really great addition and a lovely way to welcome us into our holiday. It was a great holiday and I'm looking forward to our next visit (not many places we return to twice so a real gem)

The apartment was clean and as described, lovely views over the sea, really relaxing in the evening with a glass of wine. The pools were lovely and the facilities were fabulous. Kalkan is a lovely place, the people are very friendly, and I will definitely be going back!
