Renovation Projects – Damla Tatil Sitesi, Kargicak
Dalma Tatil Sitesi in Kargicak is a delightful, picturesque, romantic holiday villa site on the hillside of Kargicak. Once popular as traditional holiday homes for Turkish families these properties have recently become popular as renovation projects for foreigners and Turkish city dwellers.
The site is in a quiet, peaceful location enjoying a sun all year round yet it is only a 7 – 10 minute walk to the shops and beautiful beaches of Kargicak; a 5 minute drive to the town centre Mahmutlar and 15 minutes drive to Alanya. The site is also on a bus route.
The basic structure of all these properties is sound and the cost for renovation is not huge but with some love and care these villas are being transformed into attractive holiday homes which combine the beauty of their traditional features with the kind of modern home comforts expected by todays investors.
We walked around the site, marvelling at the individual modernisation ideas people have had for their properties whilst keeping the overall character of these pretty little villas. We picked fresh fruit from the surrounding trees, walked through beautiful natural gardens, made our way up to the communal pool area and enjoyed a cold drink under the veranda and tea room built for residents to enjoy.
There are currently two renovation projects available on the site.
This villa is at the front of the site and benefits from space and gardens all around it and uninterrupted views across the coast. This villa needs complete refurbishment but with work will be worth it as the roof terrace is truly magnificent and the panorama is breathtaking.
As you enter the villa through the front door there are a few steps down to two small bedrooms which is just big enough for a double bed and a wardrobe / or two single beds and a wardrobe.
There is a bathroom on the ground floor.
A spiral marble staircase leads to the middle floor with a lounge / kitchen diner. There is a door leading to a shaded balcony.
A few stairs up from the lounge is a larger bedroom with room for a double bed and various pieces of bedroom furniture.
The stairs continue to the roof terrace which is a good size with spectacular views. Some owners have included an additional room on the roof terrace as it is certainly big enough to do so.
Damla Tatil Villa 2 – Renovation Project
This is located further up the hill through the gardens. There is easy access by road on the left hand boundary of the site. This villa is on the same level as the pool and is a minutes walk to these facilities.
The current owners have obviously used and loved this villa for many years and have undertaken some renovation work themselves such as re-plastering and coving on the ceilings. It has been looked after with love and care but, of course, would require further enhancements.
The layout is the same as Damla Tatil Villa 1 but part of the roof terrace has been enclosed with a wooden structure to create a sun lounge/kitchen.
Again there are panoramic views of Kargicak and the coast.
