Sleek, chic and very spacious, Pirlanta is one of a small cluster of luxurious Simpson Travel villas perched high above Kalkan. The contemporary style works perfectly with the drama of the setting, with floor-to-ceiling glass in every room adding to the generous sense of space both inside and out.
With this elevated position comes incredible sea views, most magical at sunset when the sky is painted in regal purple and gold and the islands in the bay darken to floating shadows. This is the moment to head to the most exclusive table in town: your villa’s own rooftop bar, where you can plan your evening over a glass of something perfectly chilled or retire after dinner into the balmy calm of a Mediterranean night. There’s everything you need here if you opt to dine in, or if you decide to sample Kalkan’s excellent restaurants and low-key nightlife, you can walk into town in around 25 minutes; taxis are plentiful and recommended for the return journey, unless you’re keen to burn off any mezze excess!
Kalkan offers plenty of daytime enticements too, with beach clubs, watersports, character shops to browse and a range of coastal cruises available from the harbour. For larger parties, Villa Pirlanta can be combined with Villa Elmas, a neighbouring but completely independent five-bedroom villa built to the same impeccable standards.

Simpson is the best holiday company we have travelled with. The villa was beautiful, the car hire the most straightforward we have experienced and the rep was friendly and very helpful, definitely going above and beyond! Even when travelling back during the unfortunate problems following the Thomas Cook collapse, the airport reps looked after us all day whilst trying their utmost to get us on a return flight. When one was finally found, Jess stayed with us until we had gone through the gate – absolutely amazing!
Jackie – September 2019
A massive thank you to Kirsti and the team for such a great stay in Villa Pirlanta and for all the helpful recommendations. We particularly enjoyed the Korsan barbecue – there was enough food to feed a small village so maybe order one dish less than you think you need. Our favourite restaurants in town were the Korsan Fish Terrace, Doy Doy (the filet steaks are amazing) and Ahi (on the harbour – they do great kebabs at a very reasonable price). We also really enjoyed going to the Kalkan Regency hotel for the hamam – best to do it at the beginning of your trip because of all the exfoliation. We managed to go to the market on Thursday twice (morning best or it gets pretty hot) to have some tasty gosleme (Turkish pancakes), go to Patera to see the ruins and beach, and visit the Greek island of Meis (Kastellorizo) for a day trip. We can’t wait to come back next year.

Wow – amazing two weeks! We have loved our time in Kalkan – everyone was so lovely. The beach clubs were amazing. I loved the Indigo and Kalamar. Our favourite restaurants were Kalamar (rooftop) and the Korsan Fish and Meze. In the evening the atmosphere was great and our taxi drivers (Selim and Yusef) were great! We would have definitely stayed longer if we could have and will definitely come back again. The experience of the Korsan barbecue was the best and I definitely recommend. Thank you to Kirsti for giving us some brilliant recommendations.
Chloe, Julie, Simon & Carol – August 2019
The most amazing villa! We have loved this holiday. Thank you Kirsti and Simpson – it’s been the best. The children loved the beach clubs – we took a boat and swam in caves. One week is just not long enough!
The Badega family – August 2019
Villa Pirlanta is a stunning luxury villa, with the best pool (large, multi-level with stepping stones, Jacuzzi and great views). It is a very steep walk down into Kalkan, so to avoid getting hot and dusty, we took taxis down as well as back. The taxi service is great – a car arrives in minutes and costs just 20TL (a couple of pounds). Kalkan has so many fabulous restaurants, rooftop bars and shops. But most impressive was the service from Simpson Travel – from our initial booking through to the reps at the airport and especially Kirsti (our resort rep). Nothing was too much trouble and everyone went above and beyond to make our stay that little bit more special.
Gilly H – June 2019
Would wholeheartedly recommend Simpson Travel to other customers. We felt looked after from the moment of booking until we got on the plane at the end of the holiday. Kirsti, our rep in Kalkan, was on hand 24 hours for help and answering our queries. Felt very looked after and it was such a treat. This was our first holiday booked through Simpson but will be booking with them again.
The Hughes family – June 2019
An amazing villa and with wonderful views – a fabulous place to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday. Many thanks to Kirsti, Yasir and the team who made our stay a delight – even helping to arrange a birthday cake and champagne for when we arrived! It's the special customer experience touches like that which mean we come back to Simpson again and again.
Mrs Rees – 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.
