Holidays will be different this summer. Find out how travel is changing and what we are doing to keep you safe here.
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.

This was our third villa holiday with Simpson Travel and they seem to get better each time. We were met at the airport and taken a short walk to our almost new hire car, a quick signature and we were on our way. The villa was in a fantastic location overlooking the bay of Kalkan and the swimming pool (constantly used due to the fabulous weather) was amazing – the best we have ever had in many years of villa holidays. The outdoor seating areas were vast and very well equipped with good quality furniture. The villa itself is extremely well presented with everything you could possibly need and all to a high standard – we have never been so satisfied with such a full complement of supplies. The town/harbour was just a 15 minute walk down a well-lit walkway and was a great place to be at night with all the boats lit up and overlooked by a huge selection of high quality restaurants. The shopping area, set up overlooking the harbour, has an excellent range of interesting and varied products to a much higher standard than many holiday resorts. Whist we were not able to meet her due to the Covid-19 situation, our resort contact, Kitty, was always available to rapidly respond to any queries and kept us regularly updated on any relevant developments. Looking forward to our next Simpson holiday.
Doug Smith – September 2020
Simpson Travel were fantastic. Unfortunately we were caught up in the Thomas Cook collapse, and our flights through Simpson Travel were with them, but they were extremely quick in offering us support in getting alternative flights, which we did and we were lucky enough to still be able to go away! Kitty, our Simpson Travel representative in Kalkan, was wonderful. She was extremely helpful and quick to respond to our needs. The villa was fabulous and had everything we could want. We have never used Simpson Travel before, but we certainly will be using them from now on. A 5-star service!
Mrs I B – October 2019
Another beautiful week in Kalkan at Taş Bahçe. This will be my last visit (of 3) to the villa it’s now too big for a solo traveller but I have high hopes of Tepe Ev where I’m visiting next October. As usually the Simpson magic is all around – Kitty has been wonderful, especially ‘rescuing’ me after I mislaid my car! But it’s the peace and quiet and wonderful views of this villa that I needed most and that’s been here for me in abundance this week.
Sue Cook – September 2019
This is our second trip to Taş Bahçe (we were here last year). Everything has been just as good as last year and we have had another week of wonderful weather, laughter and great eating and drinking. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip on Poseidon – very well organised and good food. Absolutely stunning view of the bay from the villa. This holiday suits us so well – a week of real R&R and we have booked to return again next year. Thank you to all involved for making the week so comfortable.
Alan, Tricia, Iain & Melissa – September 2019
Well done Simpson – a first class operation by all of you. A lovely, lovely villa in a superb location, simply nothing to find fault with! The boat trip was a great day out. We will return.
Karen & Jonathan – September 2019
This is our first visit to Kalkan in over 8 years – it’s definitely grown since we were last here! Taş Bahçe is a beautiful oasis away from it all and we’ve had a glorious week doing very little. The villa is beautifully maintained and has everything you could wish for. We’ve had lovely meals in Olive Garden, Coast, Trading House, Kosli and Belgin’s Kitchen. All in all a fantastic week. The hamam is also really worth doing.
Devi, Steve, Tarun & Deya – August 2019
Our second stay at Taş Bahçe and we would certainly return again. It enjoys a beautiful, private location with stunning views but is within easy walking distance of the town with its restaurants and shops. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and well maintained throughout our stay.
William & Jenny – July 2019
Second stay – if anything better than before and I am sure we will be back again. Thank you.
Jenny & William – July 2019
Another fantastic Simpson holiday, our second in Kalkan. This villa was perfect for our week and we have already booked for 2020! So many wonderful restaurants in the town; great food and very friendly staff. Thank you Kitty for your help and thank you Simpson for another great holiday.
Paul & Jan – May 2019
We sadly pack our bags (loaded with the obligatory genuine fakes, ceramics and a beautiful carpet) to leave Taş Bahçe. Definitely third time lucky for us with Simpson – villa head and shoulders above the previous two – beautiful view, great access to town, all mod cons and impeccably maintained. Thank you so much to Kitty for her invaluable knowledge and we look forward to our next action-packed adventure!
The Jouett family – May 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Korsan Taş Bahçe, and Simpson Travel's local representatives cannot be bettered. They are never intrusive, but they are always ready to help or offer advice if needed. We hope to see you again soon.
Glynn Warren – October 2018
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, 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.
