Stunning views of Kalkan and Kalamar Bay, stylish modern interiors and a large private swimming pool: welcome to four-bedroomed Villa Rumi on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.

The sun lounger-lined infinity pool is set on the crest of a pine-tree-graced hill, with breath-taking views of the mountainside and Kalkan town in the distance. The swimming pool has an area into which sun loungers can be placed – ideal for transitioning from sunbathing to cooling dip – as well as a separate section for kids and a Jacuzzi. The pool terrace is furnished with an al fresco dining table too and a shaded seating area to enjoy those stunning views.
Inside, the contemporary style and luxurious comfort continue. The modern open-plan living and kitchen is well-equipped and includes appliances such as a large fridge-freezer, oven and microwave. It also a charming dining table, seating up to nine. The living area has plenty of comfortable seating, flat-screen television and direct access to the pool terrace. A separate toilet is located on this level, together with a utility area housing a washing machine, iron and ironing board for a homely touch.
The first of the villa’s four bedrooms, a double, is on this floor and this bedroom has an en-suite shower room together with direct access out onto the pool terrace too. On the first floor, there are two double rooms – each en-suite shower room and sea view balcony – plus a twin room – with en-suite shower room and sea-view balcony. When you can bring yourself to leave this haven, the vibrant centre of Kalkan with its famous rooftop bars and restaurants is a 20-minute walk away.
