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!

Lovely property, excellent pool and view. Taxi transfers from and to the airport were excellent. We had great service from Hasan, the local taxi driver, to take us to and from Kalkan harbour most evenings. The daily bread delivery was much appreciated. Kitty was very prompt in responding to our messages/queries but the lack of face-to-face contact due to Covid-19 was regrettable.
Simpson Travellers – September 2020
Thank you for a truly relaxing break. We really appreciated the included barbecue (it was a very special treat) and the villa was very comfortable and very private which can be difficult to find in Kalkan! Kitty was a wealth of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble.
Alan & Sheila – September 2019
We wanted a private villa to completely relax and Tepe Ev delivered this and much more. A luxurious and spacious villa which was difficult to tear ourselves from, but we did to enjoy the complimentary Turkish Bath and boat trip, both absolutely lovely and visited Kalkan twice. Kalkan is a lovely place, beautiful harbour and relaxed. We returned home and booked the trip again for next September... a first for us!
Mrs Latimer – September 2019
We had a wonderful week at this stunning villa. A fabulous pool and a private and peaceful setting. It is the ideal spot to relax in the sun, have a drink in the shade, dine on the terrace or just enjoy the view. Nearby Kalkan has lots of fantastic restaurants, bars, shops and a wonderful atmosphere that we have thoroughly enjoyed but it isn’t easy to tear yourself away from Tepe Ev. We’re already missing the spectacular sunsets!
Mrs O’Dwyer – September 2019
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!
S James – July 2019
I think the level of service was 5-star and the attention to detail immaculate.
S Kerfoot – July 2019
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.
Lesley & Ian Underhill – June 2019
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, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
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.
