High quality two-bedroom properties are increasingly hard to come by in an area that loves its vast, statement villas, so we were delighted to find the stylish Tepe Ev, one of a trio of smart new Simpson Travel villas set on a hillside above Kalkan.

Tepe Ev sits slightly above its neighbours, commanding exceptional sea views over Kalkan and as far as the Xanthos valley and Patara beach beyond. The villa has been cleverly designed to ensure your privacy by the pool, so you can bask in the sunshine, read in the shade or just sit with a drink and take in the stunning view without being disturbed. With just two bedrooms rather than Kalkan’s customary five or six, Tepe Ev is ideal for a couple or a smaller family. There’s no compromise on the little luxuries however, so be prepared to be thoroughly indulged; in addition to the beautiful infinity pool there’s a small plunge pool just off the master bedroom, with stylish interiors that can easily rival any of Kalkan’s much larger holiday homes. For an afternoon at the beach or an evening meal at one of the celebrated rooftop restaurants, Kalkan is just a five-minute drive down the hill, with plenty of taxis available if you’d prefer a glass or two with dinner. Car hire is included in your holiday, but as the villa sits high above Kalkan, we also include private transfers from the airport so there’s no need to negotiate the steep local roads on your first day. The views from the top more than reward any effort!

Customer feedback

We have had the best holiday at Tepe Ev. From start to finish, Simpson Travel has been fantastic, quick at replying to emails and the rep, Kitty, was super-efficient and friendly. Tepe Ev is a very special place – beautiful views over to Kalkan, quiet and private and the pool was superb. We wanted a memorable holiday for the end of GCSEs for my eldest and Simpson definitely succeeded in recommending this villa. Just need to book the next one now!

I think the level of service was 5-star and the attention to detail immaculate.

We’ve had the most fabulous, relaxing holiday. Loved every moment her at this beautiful villa. Kalkan is a very special place. Big thanks to all who made Oscar’s 13th birthday so special.
Emma, Andy, Oscar – June 2019

Our rep, Kitty, was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She recommended restaurants and arranged a taxi driver for us throughout our stay. She replied very promptly to our enquiries and nothing seemed too much trouble.

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 2019 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.
