Likya Residence is just a short stroll from the heart of the charming harbour town of Kalkan.
The historic town
of Kalkan is an enchanting place and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Coast. With the absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoiled haven of lush nature
, brilliant blue crystal-clear sea, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality.
There are many places of historical interest, as well as areas of natural beauty within easy reach and are well worth a visit.Kas
The bohemian town of Kasis is a 30-40 minute drive away from Kalkan. En-route, the stunning coastal road snakes its way along the edge of a rocky coastline providing truly spectacular views out to sea
. Kas itself is situated in a sweeping curved bay (the name 'Kas' translates as 'curved').Xanthos
The ancient Lycian capital was buried after an earthquake and is still in the process of being excavated from Roman and Byzantine times. Notable sites include a magnificent amphitheatre, several monuments
and the ruins of a large church with some clearly visible coloured mosaics.
Saklikent Gorge is home to the rushing torrent of the Xanthos River which has carved itself deep into the rock and created a 100m long canyon
, 4km of which is walkable after April, once the snow from the Taurus Mountains has melted and passed through the gorge on its way to the Xanthos. The gorge is a 22 miles drive from Kalkan.
