Kalkan Photo Diary

Happy Monday Lovelies!

This is the last post of our trip to Kalkan - if you missed the other two posts you can catch up here & here.
We stayed at the Kalkan Regency which is a family run boutique hotel with stunning views across the bay of Kalkan & the Taurus mountains. I loved that the family also had their own organic farm up in the mountains, where nearly all of the fruit, vegetables, milk, cheese, yoghurt & meat was produced for the hotels consumption. It was a little gem of a hotel that we would definitely return to.

Kalkan by night
Before we went on holiday we had planned to eat out in Kalkan each night. We only did this once as the Kalkan restaurants definitely weren't classy & didn't offer us the fine dining experience we tend to go for. We ate at the hotel for the rest of the holiday - the setting on the hotel terrace was pure class, & carried the best views. The food was exquisite, the service excellent.

We took a visit to the hotel's organic farm as I wanted to see first hand where all the delicious food I had eaten came from...

first time I'd ever tried milking a cow!

Until next year Kalkan...

Wishing you all a wonderful week
