Perched on the hillside with magnificent panoramas of Kalkan Bay on one side and the traditional village of Ordu on the other, Villa Ilda offers the opportunity to experience the tranquillity of the countryside with a lively cosmopolitan resort just on your doorstep.

Villa Ilda was definitely built to impress, spread over three floors with ever more amazing views from each successive increase in height. The vast living area opens onto a stone terrace where you can enjoy breakfast overlooking the pool or pre-dinner drinks before the trip to Kalkan to indulge in some delicious Turkish cuisine and low key night life.

The interiors are sleek and chic – more New York Loft than Turkish Fishing Village, creating a pleasing contrast with the beautiful natural surroundings. Peaceful and quiet, this is a stunning retreat within easy access of all the smart resort facilities of Kalkan.

Customer feedback

We have had an amazing time in Villa Ilda, the pool was fantastic and swimming at night is mind blowing. The view from the villa is breathtaking and overall it's astonishing. There was a great deal of variety down by the harbour, which served delicious food. It has been an amazing experience and we would very much love to come back. Thank you.
Cohen Family July 2017 

Yet again, a great holiday with Simpson Travel.
Mr Twinn – June 2016

Villa Ilda is the perfect place for a relaxed family break. The views are wonderful and the villa is spacious, extremely well laid out (inside and out) and brilliantly well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay there and were hugely disappointed to have to leave.
Miss Ellis – May 2016

We had a great holiday in Villa Ilda in Kalkan.The views from the villa are superb, also very quiet and relaxing. Ramazan and Umran were so helpful and ensured our holiday was such a great success. Chris Young went out of his way to solve any problems. Great holiday.
Mr Twinn – September 2015


Villa Ilda is a wonderful property; fantastic location with stunning views of the sea and beautiful sunrise/sunsets. The space is well planned for a large party with a choice of outside eating areas, balconies and a shaded pavilion to shelter from the midday sun. The setting is tranquil but within easy reach of Kalkan with good local food in plentiful supply. This is a true Simpson Secret!
Mr Haynes – June 2015

We stayed at Villa Ilda in Kalkan at the end of June, a family of three adults. The information on the website cannot do it justice. The villa itself is magnificent, the views are breathtaking and it is the most tranquil and peaceful setting for a holiday and yet just a five-minute drive from the centre of Kalkan, or 15 minutes to Islamlar. Well done to Simpson Travel for discovering this gem, unfortunately its secret is now out.
Mr Mullins – June 2015

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 a holiday there in 2018, we'll include a complimentary hamam experience and a day trip along the Turquoise Coast in a traditional wooden gület.
