This is what's said about a stay at Villa Paramelle:

Yes we had another fabulous holiday at Villa Paramelle and its now feeling like coming home! We especially enjoyed watering the garden every morning before the sun hits the terrace. It takes a good half hour and becomes a time of reflection. The flowers are now appearing on the bougenvillia by the parking space. I cant think of anything that needs changing - everything is perfect! We're already looking forward to coming back next September but may look at a week earlier in the year if you have space. Kalkan was busy and we enjoyed eating locally at The Brothers and The Cosmopolitan Bar. In Kalkan town we can particularly recommend Gourmet restaurant. For boat trips we went on the Kalamaki 2 which was excellent.

N.B. It's lovely that you think of the villa as coming home, makes the holiday that bit more relaxing.

We had a fantastic time capped off by seeing Frank the turtle right at the end of the day when we took a boat out.
Roy & Debbie, UK. Aug 2017
N.B. Ah the elusive turtle in the bay, you were one of the lucky ones though some see regularly

We had an absolutely fabulous holiday - the villa was perfect for us. I particularly love the master bedroom! (the fact that were so many hangers and so much wardrobe space/ space to put toiletries etc. was great). The villa is very comfortable and had everything we needed and the views are obviously very lovely too! The location was ideal. The girls loved it too, they didn't want to go home and spent a lot of time in the pool. I can't think of anything in the villa that needs improving - as far as we're concerned it was perfect!.

Just back from the most wonderful week in Kalkan staying at Villa Paramelle. The resort is lovely, the villa is very luxurious with absolutely stunning views, am going to miss waking up to those views. We went with our 19 year old twin boys. I was worried there wouldn’t be enough for them to do but how wrong was I. During the week we went quad biking, on a boat trip, trip to Patara beach, OluDeniz, ghost town, Fetihey Market, beachparks and did various water sports. The restaurants were all lovely, the locals are great and the food amazing. I would highly recommend Kalkan and particularly Villa Paramelle, it’s even better than the photos and the owners and arrangements made were faultless. We will be back!

We're home now after another lovely relaxing holiday at Villa Paramelle. I really appreciated having a full length mirror... And we really like what you've done with the roof terrace. The fluffy his and hers pool towels were really appreciated too. I can't think of anything else to suggest by way of improvements, its pretty much perfect.
Hilary & Chris, UK. May 2017
N.B. We love the roof terrace too, it's like a whole new space. Glad you like the pool towels, one less thing to pack.

Stunning Villa with breath-taking views. Fell instantly in love with Villa Paramelle .... It was spotlessly clean and the lay out was perfect. Not far from the Kalamar road where there are some gorgeous little restaurants and bars and a nice walk into town. The pool is perfect for a cooling off dip .... The kitchen had everything we needed ...and the bedrooms were spacious with the most amazing views of the Med ! The sunsets in the evening on the terrace roof were out of this world! The gardens were beautiful .... It was just a fantastic 2 weeks once again in Kalkan. Both the holiday and villa were perfect, thank you so much......met so many new friends out there, that we just didn't want to come back. Credit to you both......the villa was the best we'd had so far. We even went to the dog shelter at Kas to sit with them all and give them some love........one of the most moving experiences of my life!! We would honestly have no hesitation on returning and also recommending the villa to anybody who may be interested........absolutely superb, thank you so much.

Right from the first email in contacting owners their communication with us was excellent. They helped organise our airport transfer, which was slick. On arrival at the villa, WOW!WOW!WOW is the only thing we said to each other when we first stepped onto the patio area. The views are amazing, Paramelle itself has everything you need to make your stay extremely comfortable, we were a party of 4 adults. The kitchen had everything we required, the new BBQ area was well used by us. My husband spend the afternoons in the ottoman to relax and read his book. We spend our week relaxing by the pool with the occasional trip into the town. Kalkan is a lovely Turkish fishing town, which takes about 15 minutes to walk to the old town. We always had a taxi back to the villa due to the steep hills in Kalkan, the cost of the trip from old town to the Paramelle is 9 lira. (Worth every lira due to the extreme heat in August). The Turkish people are friendly, respectful and go out of their way to help you in any way they can. This year Kalkan has really suffered from the lack of tourist due to the problems in Turkey, we can only stress that we felt very safe and most welcome from all the people we meet during our stay.
Linda & Edward & friends, UK. August 2016

We had a fantastic time at Villa Paramelle. The interior was finished to a high standard and we loved the double bedroom. Outside there were lots of different areas to relax in, including the hammock which was great for reading in, the Turkish seating area which we loved after dinner in the evenings (especially with its colourful electric lanterns) and above all the lovely roof terrace which was great for star gazing. The kids also loved the infinity pool with its amazing views. We stayed in Kalkan last year in a different villa, but preferred Villa Paramelle for it's dual aspect views and great location close to shops and restaurants. It is also close enough to walk into town to the harbour area in the evenings. I would definitely come back and would recommend it to friends and family. Given the current situation in Turkey we felt very safe and were treated with open arms by the locals. I will definitely be back again in the future.
Emma F & family, UK. July 2016

After a delayed start to our holiday (as we were supposed to be arriving in Istanbul Sat 16th, needless to say our flight was cancelled!) we had a lovely time at your villa & loved Kalkan. We reversed our stay and are now in Olundeniz for a few days (kind of wishing we were still in Kalkan)
Lisa C & friends, UK. July 2016

Thank you once again for another lovely stay in your delightful villa. We spent our first week in a newly built villa which although very comfortable made us really appreciate the charm of Villa Paramelle. Your attention to detail makes it such an enjoyable and easy holiday experience. Again I cannot think of any suggestions for improvements. We look forward to staying with you again!
Jane B, UK. August 2015

After arriving safely back in the UK I would like to thank you all for making our recent visit to Turkey so hassle free. The weather and villa were perfect, as was the service and communication from you all... fond memories will be of a great view from the villa, and the fantastic Turkish people of Kalkan. You all make a great team. Thanks again.
Jeremy G, UK. July 2015

Had another great holiday in your lovely villa. We thought the pool terrace extension was super and we loved having a glass (or two ) of wine in the kosk before going out for a meal. During conversation with management company I said it would be useful if the villa name was on the wall by roadway... and we also said a better barbecue would be great. Please don't take this as a criticism as it didn't detract from us having a superb time and hopefully we will return, the sooner the better.
David & Maureen B, UK. July 2015
N.B. Villa Paramelle sign now up on wall by gate. And traditional stone BBQ now built.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Paramelle, the views are amazing overlooking Kalkan. The villa was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The infinity pool is the perfect place to cool off, especially after a walk back from the town, very inviting! The views from the roof terrace were fantastic, especially in the evening, with the lights of Kalkan and the night sky. Perfect spot for a night cap! The ottoman sitting area is an ideal spot to sit with a good book. Kalkan did not disappoint, plenty of restaurants, good food (Turkish breakfast a must), and friendly people. Thank you for making our 30th wedding anniversary special. Would definitely recommend Villa Paramelle, hope to return one day!
Shirley W, UK. June 2015

We did have a lovely time in Kalkan, your villa and the town was a great place to spend our honeymoon. Thank you for the bottle of bubbly... it was very nice to be relaxing with a glass of it on the balcony. It is a lovely villa with great views of the area.
Shar & Duncan, UK. Sept 2014

We have returned from our holiday in Kalkan at your villa and just wanted to let you know we had a lovely time relaxing by the pool and in the much needed shade of the hammock. The villa was really comfortable and well equipped with lovely views of the bay both day and night with all the lights. Thanks for sharing your villa.
Heather F, UK. August 2014

Very quickly ... had a wonderful time in your lovely villa. Key problem soon solved by excellent Suleyman. A really great holiday – did something different every day; dined regally, and now proud owner of many watches!!
O'Reilly Family, Devon, UK. July 2014

The villa is lovely in every respect with your advice and information very helpful. I have no doubt we will be back and will be pleased to leave an entirely positive review.
David & Jill, UK. May 2014

We had a lovely, restful holiday at Villa Paramelle and really didn't want to return home. The villa is stylish with homely touches and has a light and airy feel. If anything, the photos do not do it justice because the 180 degree views from the lounge and main bedroom are simply stunning. We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Paramelle and hope to return one day.
Lynn & Keith, Bristol UK. Sept 2013

Wonderful villa with absolutely stunning views, perfect for watching the sun go down with a glass of wine. Everything you could possibly need is there and only a short walking distance from the town centre although there are many excellent restaurants to choose from within a couple of hundred yards too. Booking was so easy and Tony arranged our transfers which even with an 8 1/2 hour flight delay still went smoothly! Would recommend this to anyone who wanted a great holiday in a wonderful location with the friendliest local people I have come across in a long time!
Mold Family, UK. Sept 2013

We had a great time in Kalkan and absolutely loved your villa. The views and the outside areas were particular highlights for us. I loved the gardens and snoozing in the hammock, and we made good use of your comfy bean bags out on the terrace day and night. The location and views were fab, and we liked the fact that we didn't overlook other villas. We thought the villa was very well-equipped with good quality stuff - nice crockery and glassware, comfortable bed, interesting selection of paperbacks to browse etc. Absolutely no complaints at all and would have no hesitation in recommending your villa to others and will definitely book it again when we go back to Kalkan.
Caroline & Danny Brown, UK. July 2013

After getting engaged in Kalkan two years earlier, there was little question as to where we should spend our honeymoon. Villa Paramelle looked absolutely perfect – and it was! We couldn't have asked for more, and only managed to pull ourselves away from the pool, comfy sunbeds and absolutely incredible view once during the entire holiday (other than for the short walk into town for some fantastic meals in the evenings). The whole holiday was perfect, and Gai and Tony were brilliant in terms of booking and arranging transfers from the airport – we didn't have to think about anything ourselves which was exactly what we needed. We couldn't recommend the villa more highly, especially for anyone looking for the perfect place to spend a honeymoon in Kalkan, and cannot wait to go back.
Hannah & Craig, UK. June 2013

This was our first visit to Turkey, and on recomendation from friends we booked your lovely villa. We were not disappointed! Had many lovely days by the pool, or at local beaches, and on cooler days we were able to take trips - can especially recommend Patara beach and the nearby ancient ruins that are being restored; also had great fun at Saklikent Gorge. Lots to do, but the villa was hard to leave and had all we needed for a very relaxing holiday. Thanks for all the useful information as well.
Alison & David Moore, UK. Sept 2012

Thanks again for the stay at Villa Paramelle; Kalkan was as wonderful as ever and the whole family thought the holiday this year trumped our previous stay in terms of comfort, style and 'those' magnificent views every day.
Dan & Jen, UK. August 2012

Having just returned from a fantastic two weeks in Kalkan we'd like to let you know that we thought Villa Paramelle was fantastic. The location was excellent with brilliant views of Kalkan harbour and within easy walking distance of the old town as well as local supermarkets and cafes. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed and very private by the pool which we feel is a bonus. So thank you very much, we are looking to go back next year and will be in touch when we've decided.
Steve & Karen, UK. August 2012

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful villa. We had such a great time in Kalkan, the weather was perfect and the views from the terrace were the best we've had in Kalkan. Loved the market and our days out too - Saklikent Gorge was fun, went to Patara beach, and Kaputas. Great watermelon, peaches and tomatoes. We'll be back next year!
Daisy, Hollie, Emily, & Nicole, UK. July 2012

We had a great time, everything perfect at the villa. Many thanks, will recommend to friends......
David & Julie, UK. June 2012

Thank you for making our stay in Kalkan such an enjoyable one. Villa Paramelle was fantastic with the stunning views and so well positioned for the town and the beach. Great for eating out as so much to choose from but really liked an inexpensive new place, Cafe Ev opposite the market. Still warm in the day, cooler at night. Villa very comfortable with everything we needed, had a relaxing time there.
Sally, KL, Malaysia. October 2011

This was the first time we'd been to Kalkan and we really enjoyed our stay. The people were so friendly (bus driver actually dropped us to the door), the beaches we visited fantastic and varied (some sandy, others pebbled), there is so much to see and do but a trip to the gorge is a must - riding the 'rapids' great fun. The villa was wonderful to stay in, lovely decor, very well-equiped, and the view amazing even from the pool! We had memorable meals at local cafes as well as the rooftop restaurants overlooking the sea. Loved the market and the shopping as well. Hamza sorted a small problem with the air-con very quickly, and was so friendly and helpful, as was the pool man Osman. Unfortunately we went before the pomegranates by the villa were ripe, but we did manage to pick some figs on the walk back. We also found two wild tortoises in front of villa, one a baby and have attached a picture for the website! We're hoping to come back to the villa next year - we loved this part of Turkey.
Ali, John, Beth, and Megan, Oxfordshire. August 2011

Loved the pool, sunning ourselves on the private terrace, or reading in the shade on the beanbags. Took a couple of boat trips - an evening BBQ cruise was great. Lots of shopping and bargaining too. People sooooo friendly. And the iced coffees and cocktails brilliant!!
Lia and Lizzie, Oxfordshire. July 2011
N.B. Hope to have a hammock up in the shade next year - watch this space.

What a wonderful villa and a wonderful holiday we had! It was all perfect but what we looked forward to each day was the drink on the roof-terrace as the sun went down and the lights of Kalkan came on - so beautiful and peaceful. The sunrise from the bedroom awesome as well. We've stayed in Kalkan before and this is best position so far - quite and private but easy to walk into town (though we took a taxi back some evenings)! We enjoyed many restaurants and can particularly recommend Trio - for food and friendly service; and the new Cafe Aqua just near the villa a good recommendation - for inexpensive meals and drinks, and connecting to wifi for that quick check of emails. Still love Kalkan, will be coming again, thank you.
McAndrews, Cheshire. May 2011

We found that your villa lived up to our high expectations and was indeed beautifully and tastefully furnished. I particularly enjoyed the extra large comfortable bed! The views were fantastic from the bedrooms, living area and of course the terrace. It was great to have the pool and terrace maintained on a daily basis so it was always clean and the perfect temperature. We found it was worth having a hire car to visit the beach clubs, restaurants and to go on lovely excursions. Many thanks!
Angela, London. August 2010

We had a great time thank you. The villa was really lovely.
Mike, Arlington USA. September 2009

We had a great time. After a week of good sailing & some quite strong winds we came to Kalkan. Lovely spot and very interesting inland too. The villa was great and we found it very well furnished and well equipped. Lovely pool and very well looked after. Great restaurants nearby, in fact we were very impressed overall by the food in Turkey. Lots of places to visit, we particularly liked the ancient part of Patara. It was a lovely time of year to come to Turkey, not too many people and not too hot!! Once again, great !! Highly recommended.
Roger, Swanage. May 2008

Many thanks. We had a wonderful time in Turkey (Istanbul, Ephesus, Pammukale, Anatalya), and particularly our 2 weeks in Kalkan. The villa and its location were just perfect. We spent most days just lazing around the villa, taking advantage of the infinity pool and enjoying the beautiful view. The villa was exceptionally clean and ideally suited to our requirements.
