NEW FOR 2024


Kalkan is a long-standing favourite with mixed groups and families with older children, drawn by the exceptionally high quality, fully en-suite villas plus just enough activity to keep everyone happy for a week or two. What makes our Eden Collection villas especially covetable is their proximity to all that makes Kalkan so appealing, from beach clubs and harbour cafes to the shops and roof-top restaurants of the attractive Old Town. With all of this within walking distance of Villa Minos, your entire party can come and go as and when they please, a big step on the path to family holiday harmony!

Villa Minos is stylish and impeccably finished, consistent with the high standards required by owner Jimmy Aaladag, who is responsible for several of Kalkan’s most desirable properties. The villa boasts a 12-metre-long swimming pool with a built-in Jacuzzi, and a terrace with plenty of room to lie in the sun or dine in the shade. We love the clever new pergola, with electric shutters that can be lowered to ensure privacy without obstructing your sea view. Interiors are equally spacious and appealing, flooded with sunlight through vast expanses of glass. And if the sun gets too much, you can always escape to the games room and challenge the kids to a game of ping pong, pool or table football.

As evening falls, it’s time for drinks on the terrace as the lights in the town begin to twinkle temptingly below. It’s an easy stroll into town for a taste of the Mediterranean fusion dishes that make eating out here such a treat, or if you prefer something even closer at hand, the Korsan Suites and Kalkan Regency Hotel restaurants are perennially popular with Simpson Travel guests.

Private airport transfers to your villa are included for an effortless start to the holiday. For those wanting to explore beyond, we're happy to arrange a hire car or advise on local excursions, allowing you to experience the area's impressive beaches, Lycian treasures and timeless mountain landscapes.


Good to know… The interiors of Villa Minos will be enhanced with improved soft furnishings over the winter in time for the 2024 season.

Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Set against a breathtaking mountain backdrop, Kalkan sits on Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast: a cosmopolitan, vibrant resort perfect for exploring the timeless beauty of ancient Lycia's pine-clad shores. The pretty town centre is a treasure trove of narrow streets, whitewashed Ottoman Greek houses and inviting boutiques. It's also famous for its harbourside lounge bars and rooftop restaurants serving a variety of delicious food with impeccable service.

Our guests return to Kalkan year after year. To find out why, visit our collection of luxury villas and hotels and, if you book your Kalkan holiday with Simpson Travel, we'll include a complimentary hamam experience and a day trip along the Turquoise Coast in a traditional wooden gület.
