Stairs & Local History

After 4 & 1/2 months of travelling round Turkey on an overland adventure camping in a tent I decided to come back to Turkey and have a proper holiday and I found 'Kalkan'.  As soon as I came over the mountain and saw curving round the beautiful bay this small town with 2 islands situated slap bang in the middle of the entrance to the bay I felt like I had come home.  Two years later I left the UK and moved here to make this 'special place' my home.  A few months later I bought a plot of land and designed and built my beautiful villa, which I now can share with you.
