We have a number of extraordinary properties within our luxury portfolio but perhaps none as surprising as Villa Sade, our state-of-the-art Simpson Exclusive in a beautiful rural setting close to Kalkan. Jaw-dropping, breath-taking, original; we could quickly run out of superlatives to describe this high-end property which boasts a 22-metre infinity pool, complete with jacuzzi area and sun-warmed loungers suspended tantalisingly above the water. Only in Turkey would you find a three-bedroom villa with such fine features and the added bonus of a private gym, sauna and hamam, all perfectly positioned near a charming traditional village.
Islamlar is home to the villa owner Erhan, who spent many of his formative years down in Kalkan learning the art off flawless hospitality. The results speak for themselves and now he not only owns the best villa in the area, but also one of the finest restaurants in Kalkan, Sade, in the heart of the Old Town. Without doubt he has captured the best of both worlds in this exceptional single-storey house; peace, privacy and mesmerising views in an idyllic countryside setting, just a short drive from the hustle, bustle and sophistication of life down by the water.
Spacious, contemporary interiors are the epitome of relaxed elegance, sumptuously furnished and flowing effortlessly out onto the expansive terrace and pool area. You couldn’t wish for a more splendid spot to recline or dine as the mood dictates and when you’re after a little local fare, one of the best restaurants in the area is just a short stroll away.
For those who like to step out by day, Villa Sade is close to the Lycian trail and some truly spectacular walks but if you’d rather stay put (and why wouldn’t you) a couple of lengths of the pool or a little turn in the gym will go some way to help you hang onto your waistline in the face of great temptation. Because just a ten-minute drive away, Kalkan offers some of the finest dining in our collection and as the early evening call to prayer echoes down the valley, the lure of the meze, fresh seafood and köfte (Turkish meatballs) down in this vibrant cosmopolitan resort is almost irresistible.

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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
A pretty mountain village just above Kalkan Bay, Islamlar is a place of bucolic tranquillity and rustic architecture set against the dramatic backdrop of the Taurus Mountains. In the heart of Islamlar you will still find a truly traditional way of life, unchanged throughout the centuries: an old tea house, a bakery where flour is still ground by millstones and shepherds herding their sheep among the olive trees.
Nearby is Islamlar’s even sleepier neighbour, Üzümlü. This traditional village is wonderfully unspoilt – a place where you can fully immerse yourself in the every-day comings and goings of rural Turkey.
But should you wish to experience a more cosmopolitan expression of Turkish hospitality, Kalkan with its beach clubs, vibrant waterfront bars and rooftop restaurants, is just a short drive away, giving you the best of all worlds.
