We can’t wait for this retreat!
Our first ever Kalkan retreat, organised for ladies in business, wishing to connect and socialise on a deeper level than meetings usually permit, was in 2016. Each year this business women’s holiday has become more and more popular. Our group has grown from just 8 of us to what we hope will be 20+ this year.
We truly believe it’s growth is down to what each and every woman brings to the group and gains from one another in our safe and relaxing environment.
Want to know more?
We bring together ladies from a variety of business backgrounds that essentially have these very important things in common:-
Business owners or partners
A commitment to support others
An openness to discuss challenges and wins
A willingness to share knowledge and advice
Is this for you?
If you like the sound of the above then it more than likely is. It’s a natural form of networking and team building while developing our skills in other areas too.
An opportunity to step out of your business in order to work on it, gain ideas and learn from others in a mellow, laid back atmosphere.
There is an easy structure to the days and no pressure, so if you need to hop on a zoom call or get a quote out to a client or even just need a little ‘me time’ nobody will bat an eyelid.
That said there will be plenty on offer to ‘do’ too. From a wonderful day at sea on our private gulet to pampering ourselves at the hammam. There are some beautiful places to visit which are totally inspiring from nature or a historical viewpoint.
Where will this take place?
In glorious Kalkan, a charming bay resort on the turquoise Mediterranean coast of Turkey. We have reserved three luxurious 5 bedroom villas on one plot forming a part of our Cedar Villa Collection
Each room has its own en suite bathroom and twin or double beds, there is a large pool terrace, ideal for sunbathing and exercising. We love to eat al fresco so breakfast is laid out on the dining table and we also make use of the barbeque one evening too.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, 2 fridge/freezers and ample crockery etc. There’s also a handy downstairs’ loo meaning you don’t need to schlepp up to your room when you’re in the living room or outdoor areas. And talking of schlepping there’s no need to worry about carrying your suitcases up the stairs as the villas also have a lift.
