Sleepy Selimye’s most contemporary villa – One of the few villages on the BozburunPeninsula slowly opening up to tourism now boasts a no-expense-spared villa. The three-bedroom Massi House is perched on a hillside, accessible only by a 100 metre private drive, with sweeping sea views. Its huge lawns and terraces are ideal for long, lazy meals between refreshing dips in the pool. There is an ensuite master bedroom and a second master suite which shares a bathroom with the single room next door, making it ideal for a family of five. A games room and fully equipped gym will keep guests amused, while the restaurant, beach club and spa facilities of the nearby Badem Tatil Ev are within easy reach. Price: Seven nights at Massi House costs from £890pp based on five sharing, including return flights, transfers and car hire.
Pasha’s Palace with extraordinary master suite – Aria is a vast estate, with a jaw-dropping master pool suite which contains an indoor pool framed by floor-to-ceiling glass windows with sweeping sea views. Set away from all prying eyes, Aria is just a short drive from the buzzing Kalkan waterfront. The six-bedroom house has wonderful seascapes from its position astride a rocky outcrop, which unfurls down to a wooded, valley floor where there is a floodlit tennis court. A large pool is surrounded by terraces and an al fresco dining area. The interiors boast double height ceilings, walls of glass and an air conditioned gym, sauna, Turkish Baths and a games room. Price: Seven nights at Aria costs from £860pp based on 11 sharing, including return flights, transfers and car hire.
Seafront villas with sensational roof terraces – The two, brand new, Avicenna villas – Setaraand Afsana – are the latest addition to Exclusive Escapes’ portfolio of seafront properties in Kalkan. The four-bedroom houses boast a cutting-edge design of angular lines and walls of glass to maximise the uninterrupted sea views. Spread over four floors, the highlight is the west facing roof terrace which spills across the entire floor, creating the perfect location for sundowners. The large infinity pool is surrounded by terraces with an outdoor dining area and a mature garden. Kalkan’s cobbled streets, roof terrace restaurants, boutiques and tasteful bars are a 10 minute stroll along the coastal path. Price: Seven nights at Avicenna Setara or Avicenna Afsana costs from £920pp based on eight sharing, including return flights, transfers and car hire.
Exclusive Escapes has weekly flights into Dalaman from the private terminal at London Stansted, with BA from London Heathrow and with Monarch from Manchester. Airport transfers are provided, and on arrival at the villa there is a light meal and a well-stocked hamper. Fresh bread is delivered daily, and a supermarket shopping service can be provided – without any mark-up – so guests don’t have to worry about the weekly shop. In-villa catering can be provided on request, including freshly made breakfasts and evening meals. The hire car is ready and waiting to drive on arrival at the villa.
