Haha babs!!! What on earth does that mean?! Just laughed out loud!

That mission will be willingly accepted! We're thinking of coming for New Year! Anyone know what it's like at that time of year?

BL...what about a mankini?!  ^-^

it is very subtle of you Agent Ottoman to pretend to not understand the secret code words....wouldn't want your cover to be blown.....now we must stop communicating this way or the other side will point out we are off topic!!  :angel:

Hi
Loved reading your holiday report .. glad you had a great time.
We went to kalkan last year for christmas & new year and it was just amazing. The  weather was nice in the day but cold at night.
We went to Aubergine & fenner cafe the hunkar was also open as was kaya, Mussakka, Doy doy,Ayse kitchen, and a couple more but I forgotton which ones.
A couple of the bag shop & Gift shops were also open.
But to be honest we just had some lovely walks in the area & explored a bit further a field due to the cooler weather.
Followed by diinner & drinks and catching up with friends that were also there.
The new years eve party at aubergine was a great night lots of expats & locals enjoying the night.

Babs, you are so funny, really made me giggle and I would just love to see BL in his disguise.
Well agent ottoman - there's no hope for you now. You must accept your new year mission and report back in a few months using your secret code of course!!!  ;D

Lovely, inspiring joy-filled holiday reports - thanks for taking the time to share them with us all.

Re New Year in KK - I've been for the past few years and had a great time. The village has a very different character in winter, with mostly empty streets and shuttered up shops, but there are several cosy bars with open fires which are very inviting. The weather can be changeable and quite wet - but there are usually some sunny spells, and it's certainly warmer than the UK.

Re the legendary New Year party at Aubergine - which is where the whole town tends to gather at midnight for dancing in the street and fireworks, and is always awesome - I heard a rumour that Aubergine were not planning to open this year - so that would need checkling out.

On New Years Day there is the Looney Dook fancy dress charity swim in the sea outside Kleo at midday - which is huge fun.

Fener is always open, as in the past have been Kleo, Kaya, DoyDoy, Isos.

Usually there is only Flythomascook.com who operate Winter flights to Dalaman and they can get booked up quickly. In the past I have flown to Antalya.

I don't think the hotels are open - most people stay in villas/apartments - but none of the pools will be usable. I'm sure there are any number of forum members who could recommend places to stay, or give other useful advice.

Hope this had been helpful. Chris

Hi Christina,

Thank you so much for that info. We have managed to find some flights with flythomascook but at the moment OH doesn't have any holidays left to take  :(, however he is looking for a new job so fingers crossed one materialises as we'll just say it's already booked >:D !!

The party at Aubergine sounds amazing, I often think that NYE here is such a let down, a load of hype etc and then you go out and it's ram packed in restaurants, ten deep at the bar and stuffed in like sardines so would be nice to be somewhere more relaxed and I LOVE fireworks!

I'm keeping my little fingers crossed as what you described sounds right up our street. Is anyone else planning a NY in Kalkan? We could all meet up for EK drinks?  ;D

 :)been coming out for christmas/new year for the last 12 years, we love it! weather can be dodgy but! no ques in supermarkets. a big bonus! last new year there was a big party on the roundabout with lots of fireworks and street food. that was the first time. we were at kaya. used to go to sofra but now closed in the winter. hubby always does the new years day swim . lots of fun! we have booked our flights already with pegasus as at the moment a lot cheaper than thomas cook. have to go via istanbul but rather do that than taxi from antalya. our flight was £180 each cheaper than than the thomas cook flight in to dalaman :)

PS Christina, did you ever find out who the Small House block booker was ?! Asked Maria about you when buying our bags! Did she say hello?!

Yes, I walked into the BSG shop one afternoon to have Maria say to me, 'Chris, does the name *I Love Ottoman Chicken* mean anything to you?' (That was before your graduation to Agent, remember.) I got some very strange looks from her customers but I knew exactly who she meant. I must have just missed you - so sorry we didn't get chance to meet up - we could have made some mischief together. The Small House block booker remains a mystery I'm afraid and it's probably best left that way.

I haven't decided about New Year in Kalkan yet. I've just been checking prices of flights from Manchester at NY (flythomascook.com) and they are over £300 before baggage - I've never seen prices so high so early - and they'll need to come down a bit to make it affordable for me. If I am in KK at NY, I'd love to meet up for some shenanigans and jolly japes. :D
