The subtle charms of Islamlar are beginning to be recognised by discerning couples looking for an authentic Turkish experience in picturesque surroundings.

Sakli Ev is unique, off the beaten track and with stunning views. This romantic retreat is perfect for those seeking style and comfort. The interiors are furnished to the highest standards with light and airy rooms complementing the glass doors and chic furniture.

The outside area and private pool is remarkably spacious for a one bedroom villa where all eyes are drawn towards the sensual views of Kalkan Bay below, whilst the well manicured gardens allow for quiet contemplation as the sounds, colours and smells of Islamlar heighten the senses and soothe the soul.

Footnote

Due to the village location, Sakli Ev does have surrounding neighbours and a villa next door. However from your terrace the villa remains private.

Customer feedback

Perfect location to relax, wind down & enjoy the sounds of the mountains and the fabulous view of the bay. Second visit as good as first.
Mrs Tynan – September 2017

We have just spent another wonderful fortnight in one of Simpson's Travel bijou properties with pool in the area around Kalkan on the Lycian coast. The area is beautiful, there is lots to see and do, and the people are very friendly and welcoming. Do not let the negative headlines about recent political events in Turkey put you off - the coastal areas are a world apart, where life carries on as it always has.
Mr McLermon – September 2017

Your local reps Kirsti and Hilary were excellent, as was Brave Tours.
Mr Batts – October 2016

We went to and stayed in Sakli Ev and loved every minute of it. The location of villa was superb and frankly, we loved the fact that it was removed from the hubbub of Kalkan. the info in the villa was superb and added to by Kirsti. Overall, we have a great time so thank you.
Mr O'Donoghue – September 2016

Simpson Travel were truly excellent. High quality accommodation, simple travel arrangements, unobtrusive but high quality support from the team on site. Highly recommended.
Mr Whitehouse – September 2015

We felt very well cared for, but in a non-intrusive, light touch kind of way. The accommodation and location were wonderful and surpassed all our expectations. It feels like we have found a travel company that knows what we like and delivers what it promises. We will definitely book with Simpson Travel again.
Mr McLernon – August 2015

We had a fabulous time at Islamlar Simpson Secret and would recommend it for peacefulness, the tranquility of its location, and the hospitality of the villagers. We loved our swimming pool and the cooler mountain air. It was fun to explore the many very good local restaurants, as well as the busier life of Kalkan and Kas. The perfect holiday...
Mrs Spikes – July 2015

We recommend Simpson Travel to all our friends, knowing that if they booked a holiday with you they would be as satisfied as we are.
Mr Hoyle – June 2015

 

A superb villa having the advantage of being "secret" and secluded but only a short walking distance from several restaurants and shops. Well positioned for exploring a very untouristy part of Turkey with many interesting sites of interest. Kirstie the Simpson Rep was very knowledgeable and gave us information of lesser visited sites and places of interest which was superb. The villa was almost too good to move away from but fabulous to plunge into the pool after a bit of culture! The kingsize bed and open plan rooms makes the villa so lovely light and airy. The outside furniture is fabulous. The chartered BA flight from Heathrow was excellent - despite the longer journey to an airport. The flight was almost as good as business class with an excellent meal and wine and free newspapers.
Dr Hine – May 2015

Wonderful villa in a superb location
Mr Jenner – September 2013

A wonderful, well equipped, secluded villa in a beautiful, quiet location with stunning views ...who could ask for more! The villa was as much a part of the holiday as the area it was in and we spent half of our time enjoying its facilities. The idea of encouraging local developers to build villas just for two clearly shows an understanding of what couples like us actually want; so often we have been forced to rent villas that were really too large for our needs. It's an approach that will doubtless work well elsewhere. The Simpson Secret in Islamlar is one of those places that will make your friends jealous and you wary of making it too well known! Some secrets should stay that way!
Mr Morley – June 2013

We were overawed by Simpson Secret in Islamlar, Turkey. A truly magical place to holiday.
Mrs Innes – June 2013

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.

A pretty mountain village just above Kalkan Bay, Islamlar is a place of bucolic tranquillity and rustic architecture with the dramatic backdrop of the Taurus Mountains – and a luxury holiday here is to experience a way of life truly unchanged in centuries: an old tea house, a bakery where flour is ground by millstones and shepherds herding their sheep among the olive trees.

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.
