  • Stylish and spacious villa
  • Best location in Kalkan
  • Stunning sea views
  • Ideal for couples or families
  • Walking distance to shops and restaurants

One of the most memorable aspects of a Kalkan holiday is the superlative, deep blue views that seem to linger in your mind long after the suntan has faded. Anyone lucky enough to stay at Korsan Taş Bahçe can look forward to just such a view from the terrace, the pool and even from the galleried master bedroom, which also has its own balcony for the full panoramic effect.

Set in a rare and highly enviable frontline position, this villa seems to float above the water’s edge, with nothing but pinky-gold rocks to separate the pool and terrace from the sea. The outdoor space is incredibly generous and it’s hard to imagine a more perfect spot to swim, sunbathe and shake off the stresses of day-to-day life. Stylish and elegant, Korsan Taş Bahçe is the classic romantic retreat, but if you can bear to share this mini-paradise with someone else, Korsan Taş Bahçe is also a fantastic family villa with a separate twin bedroom for the children or teenagers to share.

Kalkan’s other great appeal is the wide choice of excellent and surprisingly sophisticated restaurants and rooftop bars crammed into the narrow streets and along by the harbour. Korsan Taş Bahçe is located just a ten-minute walk from the centre of the village, so you can enjoy a relaxed, car-free evening sampling some of the traditional and contemporary cuisine on offer, returning for a night cap or two beneath the endless starry skies.

As a thank you for booking… Choose a holiday in Kalkan and we’ll be delighted to include a complimentary Turkish bath (hamam) at the Kalkan Regency Hotel spa, along with an all-day excursion on the hotel’s traditional gület boat, Poseidon, with a delicious lunch included.

Customer feedback

The Korsan Taş Bahçe is in such a wonderful location, we hardly left the villa as the views were so relaxing. Breakfast, lunch, a G&T before going out for dinner – Taş Bahçe is perfect for gazing out over uninterrupted views. The villa has a charm which is unique with rustic stone walls and very traditional furnishing – Claire has such good taste and always makes the villa feel like home. A short walk to the many restaurants is just right. A really enjoyable two weeks, we did not want to leave. Simpson Travel made it perfect, thank you.
Moira & Roger – September 2018

Simpson Travel made the whole booking process painless. Their experience is really highlighted in covering details such as airport hotels, car parking and car hire. Each transaction was totally painless.The two villas we stayed in Zaffre and Korsan Taş Bahçe were both beautiful, as was the resort. I have no doubt that we will be using Simpson services again.
Lynn Barnes – August 2018

We had an amazing experience at The Korsan Kuzey. We would really like to express our appreciation to the Korsan team who looked after us so well. Receiving the welcome pack, herbs, spices, daily bread delivery and plates of fresh fruit and cake really are so appreciated and such a lovely touch. Also the ability to barbeque and takeaway delivery, despite the out-of-town location, was great. We had a really a fabulous holiday. Also thanks to Kirsti, the Simpson Travel representative, for the amazing birthday cake for my son that she arranged for us – very much appreciated.
Catherine Irvine – July 2018

Our two weeks at The Korsan Taş Bahçe is the best family holiday we have ever had. A wonderful villa, very well equipped with a great pool in a good location. The hills mean you need to use the very cheap taxis. This was backed up by the excellent local Simpson Travel representatives, Olivia and Hilary, and the Korsan cleaning crew. We will come back.
Mark Collard & Lisa Price – July 2018

The Korsan Taş Bahçe is an oasis of peace and tranquillity during the day, but so close to amenities and three most fabulous restaurants – not one of which was anything other than excellent. If you are a foodie, Kalkan is the perfect place to holiday.
Alan Sturrock – July 2018

Another wonderful stay at Korsan Taş Bahçe – another blissful holiday in beautiful Kalkan, another faultless experience thanks to Simpson Travel. As a solo traveller, I really appreciate the reassuring presence of Simpson staff, knowing they will go out of their way to make my stay yet another one to remember.
Ms Cook – May 2018

 

We spent a fantastic week in this beautiful, extremely comfortable villa. The villa had superb views and the outdoor area and pool area were perfect. The villa itself was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented, we couldn't fault it in any way. A lot of extra care had obviously been taken in the design and fitting of the villa and pool area and it was very much appreciated. We would love to return.
Mrs Rose – September 2017

We love Kalkan and every villa that we have stayed at has been excellent, so much so that we are returning again in September 2017 to experience yet another villa. Thanks Simpson Travel – keep up the good work!
Mrs Speer – July 2017

What a fantastic place to relax and unwind! Have had a marvellous couple of weeks, relaxing by the pool, heading out to see the ruins at Andriake (a fascinating place with an amazing museum, entrance a mere 5 TL) and revisiting Patara (we have noticed a lot more work has been completed since we visited last). If you do go to Patara make sure to visit the beach! All in all a fabulous week – already planning a return! Thanks to Kirsti and the team for all their help – and if you are reading this I hope you have as fantastic as time as we did.
John & Rach – June 2017

Another beautiful stay in delightful Kalkan – my fifth visit with Simpson Travel, faultless as usual (thanks Kirsti). Korsan Taş Bahçe is a lovely villa, perfect for one or two, and one never tires of that wonderful view across the bay. This time I didn't stray far from the fantastic pool and terrace as the week was all about relaxing and restoring lost sleep – Taş Bahçe certainly provided all that and more.
Ms Cook – May 2017

Simpson Travel was very efficient and professional. This was our first booking with Simpson Travel and we will certainly book again.
Mrs Hodge – May 2017

This is the second time that we have booked a villa in Kalkan with Simpson Travel and I would have no hesitation in recommending their service to others – they provide an excellent all round service.
Mr McGurk – October 2016

Good location, excellent spot. Will revisit next year.
Mr Buckman – October 2016

Gorgeous villa in a great location, fantastic pool and wonderful view across the bay. This is why we keep coming back to Simpson Travel!
Mrs Twitcher – July 2016

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.
