Every Simpson Exclusive villa falls into the ‘wow’ category for one reason or another, but now and again we come across a property to get extra excited about, and Villa Canim is just such a place.

Let’s begin with the location. Villa Canim lies in prestigious Komurluk, the most desirable and conveniently-located part of Kalkan, with steps and a pathway leading directly to the beach, the harbour, the shops and an enticing choice of restaurants in just five to ten minutes. Sitting just above the Palm Beach club, the villa is well known locally for its stunning, completely unobstructed views over the harbour to Snake and Mouse islands: the classic Kalkan panorama and a breathtaking backdrop for indulgent afternoons by the infinity pool and warm starry nights on the terrace.

The second stand-out feature of Villa Canim is the décor. Recently refurbished, the villa takes a tasteful, less-is-more approach, with muted colours, natural materials and hints of this coastline’s rich archaeological history creating unique and refreshingly understated spaces to relax in. The design is as practical as it is beautiful, made up of a three-storey main house and an attached, self-contained annexe, ideal if some of your party would like a little extra space and privacy. With multiple terraces there’s plenty of room for everyone to find a quiet corner, or get together as a group to share the experience of this blissful spot over drinks and dinner.

As Simpson Exclusive guests, you’ll enjoy the extra services of our local concierge, a true Kalkan expert who can arrange everything you need to make the most of your stay, from restaurant reservations and boat cruises to an in-villa massage or dinner cooked to order and served in the luxurious comfort of your own villa terrace. With Kalkan’s beach clubs, watersports, rooftop restaurants and pretty winding streets within easy walking distance, Villa Canim is an outstanding base for a multi-generation gathering, two families travelling together or to mark a special occasion in style. Booked in combination with one or both of our neighbouring properties, Villa Hanedan and Villa Sultan, it also offers a wonderful opportunity for large groups to travel together and enjoy this special spot.

Looking for 10 nights..? Why not add a 3-night stay in a boutique hotel to your villa holiday. To find out more, view our 10-night holidays in Turkey.

As a family this was our seventh visit to Kalkan and Villa Canim has to be one of our favourite villas. The pool was such a great size and the uninterrupted view of the bay and harbour was absolutely stunning. What we liked was that from this villa you can walk into Kalkan, which we did many times. There was a very small area that was a little bit uneven and on a slope, but once you passed this it was a flat pathway, which was fine. The villa was well-equipped and had 6 bedrooms which enabled us to move around, as not everyone wanted air-con on at night! We would definitely return to this villa!

Mrs Hilary Vitale, September 2023

Super week in this villa – have to say Zeze just made it all happen – brilliant lady! Will again be using Simpson Exclusive in the future. Thanks so much.

Keith, Chris, Bertie and Matt, September 2023

Another wonderful week in Villa Canim. Zeze is utterly brilliant and makes the whole stay run so perfectly; she is brilliant. We loved our Poseidon trip too, and adore the villa and its wonderful view. Until next year!

The Tricard and Williams families, August 2023

Here to celebrate a 50th – six couples to have fun and chill. Villa Canim was perfect. Great location to walk into town, sea swims at the Palm Beach Club, boat trip, fabulous catering and party by Korsan. Zeze was gracious and super helpful and Simpson team met all our requirements. Visited the Saklikent Gorge for a never-to-forget adventure, some had a Turkish shave at Sweeny Todds and the group hammam was a must do on Day One. Sunsets over the pool a visual post card. Thank you from us all.

Simpson Travellers, August 2023

Fabulous week spent in this villa with everything you could wish for. The hammam massage was not to be missed. The boat trip was lovely and a day at Zest Beach Club was wonderful with fabulous food. The villa is perfectly positioned to walk into town but still peaceful and great to be able to walk to Palm Beach Club too! Zeze was a complete star and wonderfully helpful – no problem too small. Thank you for making our holiday special.

Hampshire, Wiltshire, Essex family/friends, July 2023

Everything about this experience was exceptional. We loved Kalkan and the villa. Zeze was friendly, welcoming and very knowledgable. Nothing was too much to ask, and she happily responded to us on what turned out to be her day off. Thank you Simpson Travel!

Sarah Tebbit, July 2023

We had the most wonderful week - it really was perfect! Zeze, our Simpsons rep was incredibly helpful and saw to our every need. Huge thanks for a fantastic holiday!

The Hendersons, July 2023

Would very much recommend Simpson, Kalkan and Villa Canim to others - we had a fantastic holiday.

Danielle Gumm, July 2023

This villa is a little slice of heaven! Sheer luxury and truly memorable experience. Zeze is amazing very helpful and always available.

Kim Nuttall, May 2023

We have had the most fantastic holiday staying in this wonderful villa. We are a three generational family and there was plenty of space for all. The trip on the Poseidon was amazing – it was a beautiful boat and the staff so friendly and kind to the children. The hammam was very different to anything we’ve ever experienced but was well worth doing. We visited Patara and went to the beach and also the ruins. We all went up to the mountains to experience a full Turkish breakfast. Some of our group went to Kaş, which they said was very different to Kalkan. Zeze was very kind and helpful and sorted things out for us on occasions. A super holiday.

The Scragg and Bushell families, May 2023

We had a wonderful holiday in Kalkan, the Villa was excellent, the people extremely friendly and helpful, and Zeze (the Simpson Rep) was utterly brilliant. We will definitely come back! Thank you Simpson Travel.

Sophie Tricard, August 2022

Our fourth holiday with Simpson travel and another excellent villa in a beautiful location. Villa Canim was a fabulously comfortable villa with great outdoor space in an amazing position. There is a great concierge team in Kalkan that just made everything run smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you to all at Simpson.

Felicity James, July 2022

A beautiful villa in a wonderful location. As always, Simpsons took excellent care, and nothing was too much trouble. Even though there are cheaper alternatives, I will always come back to Simpsons because I know I will be in the best of hands.

Nicholas Hicks-Beach, July 2022

Fantastic time in Kalkan staying at Villa Canim, the villa and views were beautiful. Zeze our concierge was amazing, very helpful, welcoming and friendly. We have used Simpson Travel before and will definitely use their services again.

Louise Duckworth, May 2022

This was our 3rd holiday in Kalkan and our 2nd at Villa Canim. We can only say, everything was perfect. Simpson's do a superb job and we are so grateful for all their efforts.

David Brown, May 2022

We booked a villa to accommodate a party of 12 family members including 6 adults and six children the youngest being 11 months. This was a very special family holiday for several reasons and one that we wanted to be as perfect as it could be. So we had very high hopes and expectations which did not disappoint. From the very first contact with Simpson travel, I had lots of questions prior to booking and the team answered honestly and gave advice when needed. I contacted them on many occasions to fine tune the details, and every question, was dealt with patiently and talking me through options. We had in villa dining on two occasions, our concierge arranged a birthday cake, balloons etc and the welcome pack was plentiful with all the requirements of feeding a large family! Truly so much more than we expected. The private transfer was amazing, excellent vehicle with chilled water for everyone, baby seats and a courteous driver who was equally excited for our family who were visiting Kalkan for the first time. We are new to Simpson Travel, but we will certainly be using them again. And as an added service, the Simpson travel app was amazing!, not only did it give you a daily countdown in the dark winter days, but was very informative and gave updates on flight status, maps and lists of places close by but also all contact details for our stay. All in all, exceeded our very high expectations. Bucket list well and truly ticked!

Jacqueline Jarvis, May 2022

Beautiful villa in great location. The photos do not do it justice.

Sarah Bishop, July 2020

We usually travel independently. On this occasion we chose Simpson Travel as we were a large party and travelling with family. We were very impressed with all aspects of our trip. The pre-departure team and communication were excellent. Resort staff were most professional, knowledgeable and always available. The quality of the accommodation was excellent. Simpson Travel exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to use them again.

Mrs Lee, August 2019

The villa is perfect and easy to walk to Kalkan. The boat trip and Hamam at the Kalkan Regency were both really good – the boat is beautiful. Our rep, Kitty, was excellent. Simpson Travel just gets better and better.

David & Ann, May 2019
