  • Romantic and stylish cottage
  • Beautiful sea views
  • Stunning infinity pool
  • Walking distance to restaurants

With one of the most sought after positions in the village, offering dramatic views down towards Kalkan and also further west to Patara Beach and glorious sunsets, Yaz Evi is an intimate place that will capture the essence of this special country.

Yaz Evi is translated as ‘The Summer House’. In times gone by people living by the coast would retire to the hills to escape the summer heat and in July and August Islamlar offers cooler temperatures to those on the coast below. With the same owner as Villa Buse, Yaz Evi mixes the contemporary style of chic Kalkan with the traditional elements of rural Turkey – the result is an intoxicating blend of flair and panache.

Walking trails along the Lycian Way, wonderful beaches and a visit to the local restaurants await.

A stay here is to be immersed in nature taking advantage of an exceptional house with tasteful furnishings and stunning infinity pool.

Customer feedback

We keep coming back to Simpsons Travel because the service & quality of the Villas is second to none. Looking forward to our next adventure with you.
Mrs Venton – June 2015

Yaz Evi is a beautiful, very well appointed villa with superb views. Situated in a traditional Turkish mountain village with excellent local restaurants within walking distance, but also a short drive into Kalkan and Kas. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday and are already thinking about returning next year! Karen Rowland and Dave Pearce
Mrs Rowland – May 2015

Thank You Simpsons for a wonderful holiday at Yaz Evi in Islamlar. The villa, pool, location and welcome from Kirsti were all excellent. The village is just the right place for a peaceful holiday with a choice of good restaurants to walk to, but close enough to Kalkan, Kas and the various historical sites to enjoy trips out in the car when you want a change. We will definitely be using Simpsons again for future holidays as the quality of service and standard of accommodation has been excellent.
Mrs Skelton – July 2014

Simpson Travel have done it again!! A wonderful 2014 villa holiday in Turkey, with everything organised to perfection. The new Simpson Travel desks at the airport were just excellent, appreciably cutting down the check in time. Roll on 2015 and back with Simpson Travel again. Many thanks.
Mr Cunningham – June 2014


I broke my wrist three weeks before we were due to travel and Simpsons were so kind and accommodating and helped to make the necessary arrangements required to still travel. Our holiday was villa based accommodation and could not be faulted. The rep in Turkey was amazing and provided us with lots of local information. We will not hesitate to travel with Simpsons again and are already starting to plan our next holiday with them.
Mrs Gould – April 2014

If you are looking for a holiday that is completely relaxing, in the most beautiful surroundings and is accessible to the very cosmopolitan Kalkan then Yas Evi in Islamlar is most definitely the place to head to! Set in the hills above Kalkan the scenery is breathtaking, the villa is stunning and far better equipped than my own home. The village boosts a good selection of restaurants and a short trip down the hill into Kalkan where the shops, restaurants and bars are of a very high standard. Mamhut the Villa owner is a complete gentleman and really could not do enough to ensure our stay was real pleasure. This is the second holiday we have had with Simpsons and we can not fault them, we will definitely be back for more next year!!
Mrs Essex – October 2013

Yas Evi is a stunning villa and very well equipped. How can you not relax in such a beautiful, peaceful setting. Mahmut and all his family are truly some of the most friendly people you are ever likely to meet.
Mrs Bausor – July 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.
