Kalkan is a small, tranquil Mediterranean resort and fishing town, set in the Antalya province of Turkey on the beautiful Turquoise Coast. Kalkan has been less affected by mass tourism than some of the other resort towns. According to the Sunday Times, Kalkan attracts the kind of visitor who would also enjoy Tuscany or the Dordogne and it is an ideal location for travellers looking for more than sun, sea and sand. Its location, snuggled around a small bay at the foot of the Taurus Mountains, is particularly beautiful and one of the many things that make this town stand out from the rest.

Because of its particular appeal, Kalkan has proved popular to many perennial visitors who return year after year to sample the town’s ample charms. It is a tiny historic town with a resident population of around 3,500 people, although this swells in the summer to around 9,000. Strict building controls have helped retain the town’s authentic character and the Greek Ottoman architecture that it is famous for. Kalkan enjoys a great Mediterranean climate with summer sunshine almost guaranteed.

Kalkan is well served by airports with Dalaman Airport at 126kms (78 miles) and Antalya Airport 216kms (134 miles). Both airports have good links to Kalkan; by bus, or more popularly, by shared taxi.

Because of its size, property in Kalkan is not always as plentifully available as in other resorts. There is still plenty of choice however, although most of them are outside of the old town itself.
At the top of the range you can buy some luxury villas on the hillside with panoramic views over the whole town and bay.

£735,000 will buy you an enormous luxury pad with a private mooring, swimming pool and four very spacious bedrooms, with all of the usual luxury finishes you would expect at that price and a very private location. Anywhere from £350,000 up will get you something similarly luxurious.

£140,000 will still get you a large 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom place with a private pool, but much closer to the town and without the mooring, although the panoramic sea views are pretty much a standard feature.

At the lower end of the property for sale in Kalkan, Turkey you can pick up a 1 bedroom ground floor apartment in the popular Mediterranean Development, which is just a 5 minute walk from the town centre.  This comes fully furnished and air-conditioned with communal pool and gardens. With a shared bathroom this one would maybe be better for a buy-to-let or a holiday home rather than for emigrating to the sun.
