Excellent holiday!
Three couples travelled together and enjoyed an excellent holiday. The strengths of Villa Jasmine are many, but it is the combination of the sheer quality of the building and its well chosen contents that make the first impression. The mountainside position is stunning with panoramic views and tranquility; away from the busy coast, but near enough for easy access - ten minutes by car, or in our case an hours run. The location also allows guests to drop into untouristy local restaurants (which double as trout farms) and drive a relatively short distance to incredible historic sites, which aren't crowded packaged and guided in the way they so often are elsewhere. The gorge walk is a must do for the more intrepid. On the coast Kalkan is a shoppers paradise with some great eating and an abundance of character. The harbourside is a delight and a boat trip with Captain Abdi provides a relaxing day and includes some of the best food you will eat anywhere in Turkey. The staff were attentive and resourceful, Ahmet can source just about anything, but is particularly strong on BBQs, either cooking for you or providing lovely fresh fish, quality meat and pretty much anything else you may want. We had planned to laze around the pool and read the week away, but the surroundings offered so much we were tempted away every day.

Absolute peace!
The Villa is set in the hills above Kalkan , far enough away to enjoy absolute peace and tranquility and yet close enough to Kalkan to enjoy the town and all it has to offer. The Villa is of the most modern design and equipped to the highest standards by the owners , this is not a holiday home as many are , it is the owners home in Turkey and you can certainly tell the difference. We will be returning as soon as possible.

We would most definitely would like to go back to Villa Jasmine!
A group of six friends stayed at Villa Jasmine from 7 - 14 July 2014. We arrived very late at night by transfer bus and despite the lateness we were were met with a warm welcome by Ahmet the caretaker very welcoming indeed after a long trip. The Villa is lacking in nothing, it is spacious, comfortable but at the same time luxurious. It is situated in a very tranquil place surrounded by fruit and olive trees and looks down on Kalkan town. The views are amazing! We would most definitely would like to go back to Villa Jasmine and recommend it highly especially to a group of friends holidaying together.

Stunning!
Villa Jasmine is absolutely stunning. Comfortable, clean with beautiful surroundings. Ahmet was at hand, if you needed anything and we found him very helpful through our stay. The journey to Kalkan was further than we thought but well worth the long drive to come back to villa Jasmine. I would definitely recommend this villa to any of my friends wanting to holiday in Kalkan.

WOW!
WOW! There are four things that keep drawing us back to Turkey;The Food and Wine,Kalkan Mountain Villas,The People and The Weather. We were extremely fortunate this year in being able to stay at both Jasmine and Angelica, once again. I cannot decide on a favourite, as they are both amazing. For me it's like living on a film set, or being in the house that you've always dreamed of. They're just beautiful, both inside and out-all so well appointed, and tastefully done. The views to Patara beach are incredible, and the sunsets' over the mountains are quite breathtaking. Location, Location, Location.....five minutes from the mountain restaurants/20 minutes from the classier Kalkan restaurants. There is so much to do in the area. I have to say, I'm at my happiest, lying by the pool, G&T in hand.........

Great place to relax!
Fabulous mountain villa overlooking the Turquoise Coast. Space, light, amazing views, heated infinity pool , high-spec, contemporary style - exceeded our expectations & was the perfect base for our week in Kalkan with our friends. The villa is set up in the hills & in a tranquil position - a great place to relax after the bustle of Kalkan. Car or scooter essential if you are looking to explore the area - Kalkan is a 15 minute drive/taxi ride away.

One visit won't be enough...
Well as everyone has already said these villa's are tremendous for so many reasons.5 star and more without doubt. That will be why we have been lucky enough to have visited both Angelica and Jasmine 6/7 times,lost count as have terrible trouble tearing ourselves away.Even visiting twice in the same year!! The mountain position,the stunning villa's themselves,the weather,the sunsets,calmness,total peace and tranquility. You really can loose yourself and completely relax and unwind in your own private undisturbed piece of heaven. We never tire of BBQ's taking in the awesome sunsets. When we manage to leave the villa eating in the mountains is always a joy,great food and drink at amazing prices too. Kalkan has lots to offer again with some great restaurants as well. To add to that Ahmet can never do enough for you.Taxi-man,shopping and always there to help. Can't wait to be back there floating in that pool or swinging in my hammock ...unwinding with my g&t... Bliss

Paradise
Perched up in the mountains 15 minutes away from the bright & bustling Kalkan, Villa Jasmine is a hidden slice of paradise. Whether you spend all day at this spacious, modern, beautiful villa in a superb location relaxing by the pool or take a few day trips to Patara Beach, Saklıkent Gorge & Xanthos. It truly is the most beautiful place to call home for your vacation. (Lets be honest, it is that nice you will not want to leave! We didn't) Villa Jasmine is so well equipped and comes with everything you may or may not need. An absolutely fantastic place!! I hope we will be able to return here year after year.

An Oasis of Tranquility & Luxury
We have just returned from an amazing week at Villa Jasmine (Kalkan Mountain Villas). The beautiful villa took our breath away – luxuriously furnished, spotlessly clean, fully air-conditioned, well designed accommodation in a perfect setting – it really has everything you could need for a comfortable stay in Kalkan. Set high in the mountains – there is a beautiful view towards Patara Beach and the air is fresher and less humid than in the main resort – yet Kalkan’s wide choice of restaurants and activity are only a 15 minute drive away and there are other more rustic restaurants and food markets nearby. The villa is split over three levels with four double bedded en-suite rooms, - each with balconies or direct pool access, a huge galleried lounge dining area, unbelievably well-equipped kitchen, sun terrace with ample comfortable loungers and a wonderfully cool infinity pool with jacuzzi. There is ample comfortable bedding, soft white towels and toiletries We enjoyed every second at the villa and in fact failed to get round to some excursions due to the fact that we were so chilled and contented by the pool. The spacious layout of the villa and numerous balconies and terraces provide ample space for privacy and relaxation and there is ample parking out front. The owners seem to have anticipated your every need – with comfortable sofas, dining table for eight, a huge satellite TV, stereo, computer workstation, Wi-Fi and a selection of, DVD’s, books and board games. We all loved our stay at Villa Jasmine and wouldn’t hesitate for a second to return. Highly recommended.
