“A really nice little apartment with pool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

Lycia Sun Studios are a group of 3 apartments that lie underneath Villa Lycia Sun where the owner Ali Çitci, a retired university academic & his wife live. On the website: http://www.lyciasun.com/ they are referred to interchangeably as both ‘Lycia Sun Studios’ or ‘Lycia Sun Apartments’ which can lead to a little confusion as with there being so much accommodation in Kalkan, sometimes similar sounding properties can be quite different places. The apartments open up onto a small swimming pool shared by visiting guests. My apartment, one of two smaller ones, comprised a large bedroom/kitchenette with a small bathroom with shower & WC. The apartment was very clean – a tiled floor & two scatter rugs – made for easy cleaning which was done on a weekly basis together with the provision of a change of towels. It had a large double bed, television, small desk and a very efficient air conditioning unit. Television coverage is mostly Turkish with very few international channels. The cooker was built into the draining board and had two electric plates and an extractor fan above. Underneath was a fridge with freezer compartment and this was very good at keeping perishables cold. The electric socket for the kettle was loose but this was the only really negative thing about the condition of the apartment. All three apartments had only started taking guests in 2010. The apartment also had internet access which was very useful although the wireless connection tended to drop fairly frequently and the download speed was somewhat slow. Lycia Sun is a very convenient place to stay in ‘hilly’ Kalkan and with the adjacent pool I was very content to ‘chill out’ for several days while I acclimatised to the heat and cater for myself with the pretty well equipped kitchen. The cost of the apartment was very reasonable. All in all this is a nice place to stay. You have to remember that other guests are close by but there is plenty to do so you can get out and escape if needs be, visit beaches, ancient monuments etc and the cost of such visits/tours is not prohibitively expensive and even cheaper if you take the dolmus. There is one small supermarket very close to hand & cash machines and shops and other supermarkets within reasonable (up & down hill) walking distances. Ali and his wife are very friendly but don’t intrude and are extremely helpful if you need anything.
