From the moment we arrived in resort we fell in love with Kalkan and Safir was a huge part of this. If you want to be close to the old town and all its delights but at the same time want your base to be peaceful and relaxing then Safir is the place to stay. The apartment was welcoming, immaculately presented and maintained by Ramazan and his wife who we got to know quite well ! Thank goodness for the splash pool as we had a bit of a heat wave for a few days and I spent much of my time in the water. The apartment really was a home from home with everything you would need for your stay. Bridget( the owner ) has been amazing and couldn't do enough for us, even booked our first evening meal out at Sade (delicious) and provided us with a comprehensive guide on the apartment and also local amenities etc. and we found this invaluable. Would we stay at Safir again ? most definitely and I would recommend anyone reading this review to do the same !
Amazing apartment, (its the size of a villa and the private plunge pool was the icing on the cake.) Very clean,bright and airy with every thing we needed. A home from home. The views are exceptional and Bridget (the owner) couldn't do enough to help us. We even had a change of linen and towels and a house clean and we were only there a week. Truly brilliant service.
My husband and I treated our mother's to a weeks holiday here. 3 bedrooms which was perfect as our mum's had their own room.
The apartment is modern, immaculate and precious. It's plunge pool was great for us to cool off in and views to die for.
Bridget has equipped the apartment well with all the necessities.
Location is only around 10 min walk to restaurants, bars and shops....might take a little longer on way back as up hill (which we enjoyed as helped burn off all the lovely food)
The restaurants were all fantastic, so much choice and all were of high standard for reasonable cost with most having amazing views.A few of our favourites were aubergine, la terras, mussaka and Sade.
Everyone we spike to was so friendly, welcoming and non pushy.
We absolutely enjoyed our time in kalkan staying in a beautiful apartment so would definitely recommend and would certainly go back again x
Had a fantastic leisurely holiday staying at Bridget & Gareth's wonderful private duplex penthouse.
Duplex was well equipped with everything you need for your holiday including towels,beach towels and hairdryer so saves on luggage space. Bridget was an absolute star organising our transfers, excursions and even a reservation at a wonderful restaurant for our anniversary which saved us the stress. A very well put together welcome booklet with everythjng you need to know about Kalkan. Was also surprised with a well thought out welcome pack which saved rushing staight out to the supermarket for supplies when we arrived.
Pictures don't do the views of the sea from the balcony justice it is absolutely stunning.
Only recommendation would be a small table to put your drinks etc on beside the sunbeds.
Thank you for a Wonderful holiday. We will be back.
The apartment is located within easy walking distance of the old town but is far enough away to be quiet and peaceful resulting in a relaxing holiday. The apartment was very well laid out resulting in great views from the top floor and balcony. Bridge kindly arranged our transfers which worked perfectly and we hired a car for a few days which was easy and allowed us to visit the local beaches and historic sites. Great holiday enjoyed by all.
Safir welcomes you in and makes you feel so comfortable! We absolutely loved our 9 nights there and will grab a chance to stay there again in a heartbeat in the future! It has everything you need and so close to all the restaurants and shops. Bridget was the perfect host and made our stay perfect. Ramazan popped in regularly to make sure everything was ok and to tend to the pool and terrace. The kitchen was fully equipped, bed was comfy, great shower, fab hairdryer, laundry facilities were great.....the list goes on. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Date of the holiday 24th August- 7th September.
What an amazing time we had at the Samir, me and my wife visited with 2 of our friends, the Samir has everything you could wish for, well stocked with all you need for a very comfortable stay, the location is excellent, close to all restaurants and bars and the old town, this apartment is a credit to the owner Bridget, she has thought of everything, Iam sure that we will visit in the future, and not forgetting our fantastic boat trip, this is a must, I can't speaking any highly of the Samir, thank you so much to Bridget,
