Nice trip

Had smashing visit to this drop dead gorgeous town today. Been few times before and always impressed.

Very upmarket, pricey property and excellent standard restaurants. Price difference shows between there and our wee village in that its dearer in Kalkan for a coke in some spots than it is for an Efes in our village-however you get what you pay for and the surroundings and views in Kalkan really are special.

Great place and well worth a visit.

Re: Nice trip

Sounds like a beautiful, classy place! Isn't it known as Turkish riviera..

I've always wanted to visit Kalkan from the photographs I've seen. Never been, would love to one day.

I imagine property prices are expensive, mind you if you sold your mansion and outhouses in Uzumlu you could possibly get a 1 bed in Kalkan?

Re: Nice trip

Lol they saw you coming Philip:

Emlakc?dan Sat?l?k Villa - Antalya Ka? Kalkan - 149.000 GBP - www.Emlak.net

But I agree, that area is generally much more expensive than places further north, say Didim and Kusadasi.

I would love to take a trip to Kalkan this autumn...

Re: Nice trip

Well Philip, you've opened my eyes - I've just browsed the villas in Kalkan and the area looks gorgeous; the houses are first class. If only I had some spare cash

Re: Nice trip

Well my name says it all. Kalkan has so many repeat visitors we can't all be wrong. Just like you Philip to inflate the price of property, although I agree it is more expensive to buy then many places, but then I haven't heard many rip off stories that you seem to get in other areas. The 100+ restaurants have some fab food. If you are still out there at the start of October you must come and visit us.

Re: Nice trip

I did not inflate the price at all
The prices were displayed in the est agent window-hillly street leading up from harbour next door to a kebab shop and a barber

Re: Nice trip

It must be some 2 bed apartment then Philip. Will have a look just to wonder at anyone paying that much in Turkey for 2 beds, I'll probably be able to look at the advert every year indefinately!!!!!

Re: Nice trip

I visited Kalkan on my first trip to Turkey 22 years ago. Then, it was very small, pretty, but falling down! Most of the old houses on the lanes running down to the harbour were in dire condition, many of them empty. It was cheap, had a few good bars, and I met some really interesting people there - it was on the backpackers trail in those days.

Very different now! I was gob-smacked when I saw the huge new road last autumn, and the building up the mountain behind.
