What you'll do

After meeting at KALKAN I will take you to our village Bezirgan with a transportation vehicle that will be enough for us. It takes 20 minutes (17 km). We will visit the village's historic plane trees and granaries. If you want to take some photos ı will be ready as a photographer :) We will visit the houses in the village and take part in their daily routine. We will have the opportunity to drink tea in the village coffee and interact with the villagers and observe them. And then we will take the same way to our starting point.

I have a family experience that can be called local.My grandfathers were living in this region.I had travelled countries such as America, France and Italy during my school years ( I am a graduate of tourism management ) I searched for local experiences during my travels. Therefore, I know well what travel lovers are looking for to experience local experiences. In this village, we have restored the house that my grandparents had lived in and my family live in. I know the local life, local tastes, different places unique to the region and the people of the region.

I absolutely loved EVERYTHING about this experience! Super personalized and not like any regular pre-planned “tour” excursion. I’m pretty low key and I love people and culture... and I really wanted a relaxing fun authentic day in a village... This experience really jumped out at me from the start. Ilklima and her family is as fun, real, and authentic as can be! We had a beautiful walk and chat through the village, tasting fruits and things along the way, talking with locals, etc. Ilklima and Özgür were so kind and happy to take photos for me to have priceless memories to take home! The meal, with fruit, nuts, vegetables from their garden and farm area, was delicious beyond belief! Everything tasted EXTRA fresh and amazing! I felt very safe regarding this Covid situation, we wore masks most of the time and kept distanced, and outdoors generally. No risk.... though after the day was done, I really wish i could have hugged them all for their kindness! (next time!) Such a wonderful, kind and hospitable family! Highly recommend if you are near Kaş /Kalkan.

I really enjoyed this experience with İlklima and her family. İlklima’s village of Bezirgan is in the mountains directly above Kalkan, and the drive up there is beautiful. We stopped at a ledge on the outskirts of the village where we got to enjoy one of the best views I saw while I was in Turkey. Once we got to the village, we walked around and enjoyed the weather and peacefulness, before heading back to their house in the village where we enjoyed a home cooked meal, as other family members who lived in the village joined in. Overall, I am very glad I got to experience the village of Bezirgan, as it was a very peaceful and friendly atmosphere, and İlklima and her family made sure that it would be a experience I won’t forget. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who is staying in or around the Kas region.

I've been on many Airbnb experiences, and this is far and away my favorite one. İlklima was the warmest, most hospitable guide I've ever had. She took me into her village, introduced me to people, we ate dinner with her family, we walked around their gorgeous backyard, and we had experiences I would've never dreamed of having. This is a truly unique experience, and İlklima is a truly wonderful person. Make sure to also book the fishing experience with her dad! He is the cutest and it's a really wonderful experience.

I really enjoyed the trip to the countryside and visiting local family. We had dinner together, special local pancakes made by Ilkima’s dad on the fire place, we eat outside in a old Turkish way together with the family and neighbors. Later we walked through the village meeting other locals, hearing the stories of the traditions & lifestyle of the village and how some things change due to modernization. It felt like I visited a hometown of an old friend, Ilkima is very hospitable and warm. The village is very quiet and relaxing, her family was simply wonderful and very friendly. I can say it was a highlight of my stay in Kalkan.

We were treated to a unique insight into village life with ilkilma at her family’s village. She is very warm and knowledgeable and a perfect guide who went out of her way to make help us enjoy the day and our onward travel plans. The real highlight of the tour are her neighbours who’s hospitality we enjoyed making and tasting gozleme pancakes in their open fire and drinking tea over a good bit of village gossip! Their house is a true connection to a fast disappearing way of life and Ilkilma’s house is a carefully restored and sensitively modernized counterpoint. We also greatly enjoyed drinking coffee and reading fortunes to the strains of the best music in town at the village cafe - her father and the owner both had great cameos here.
