It seems England’s footballers can’t get enough of Turkey this year! High profile football names were in the country earlier this year when the England team competed in the Under 20 FIFA World Cup, and now the manager of the national squad, Roy Hodgson, has been spotted relaxing there.
In recent weeks Roy has been seen around the desirable resort of Kalkan, including dining at some of the fine restaurants Kalkan is known for, as he holidays there with his wife. Who knows, could Roy be tempted to snap up one of the great properties available there? Amongst the homes on the market there that might appeal to Roy, and just as importantly Mrs Hodgson, is a brand new luxury five-bedroom villa, just a short walk from the charming cobbled streets of Kalkan’s centre, beautifully fitted and with a private pool and of course incredible panoramic views of the Med and bay.
Kalkan is on Turkey’s south-west Mediterranean coast, between the towns of Fethiye and Kaş. It sits at the foot of the Taurus Mountains in a beautiful bay. It has a man-made pebble beach, but is best known for its beach clubs and nearby stunning beaches of Patara and Kaputas cove. The beach clubs are private rock bathing platforms with cosy restaurants, typically five minutes’ water taxi ride round the bay. The sea around Kalkan bay has a Blue Flag award is suitable for all types of water sports.
Kalkan has an estimated 100-plus restaurants to choose from, with the most popular being located on roof terraces of the Old Town, where you can sit and watch the sun set overlooking the sea – the perfect setting for someone wanting to escape the high pressured world of international football for a few days!
