This exceptional villa is the creation of Aşkınay Tomanbay, one of the family who run our wonderful Kalkan Regency hotel. The Regency has been welcoming our guests for several years and the family are consummate professionals in the art of hospitality, so Aşkınay understands better than most what Simpson Travellers appreciate. From the impressive 9-metre pool to the outdoor jacuzzi and the mesmerising sea views, Villa Talya is one of the finest properties in our Turkish collection.
The elegant style is reminiscent of a luxury mountain lodge, with exposed stone walls and lots of unpolished wood giving a rustic-chic feel, perfectly in keeping with the lovely rural location. The overall effect is both stylish and romantic, but what impresses everyone most about this beautiful spot is the view, a sweeping panorama that stretches all the way down to Patara beach and the infinite blue of the horizon beyond. You can spend all day making the most of this glorious outlook, swimming laps in the pool, soothing muscles in the hot tub or pouring bubbles into your glass instead as the sunset burnishes the sky in copper and gold, and the lights start to twinkle on the coast.
With views like this you may find it hard to leave, but buzzy Kalkan can be reached in around 20 minutes, part of which is on an unmade track. And if all that seems like just a little too much effort, there’s a local restaurant just a few minutes away, with a beautiful setting and delicious food. Villa Talya is secluded but not isolated, set in a cluster of similar properties each carefully positioned so as to retain a good degree of privacy for all, making this wonderful choice for an intimate celebration or a peaceful family break.

Fabulous villa with breathtaking views. The rep (Olivia) was excellent throughout, offering sound advice and very easy to contact. We would be extremely happy to stay at Villa Talya again and would certainly recommend to others.
Simon & Sue Bailey – August 2019
Secluded, remote, quiet and beautiful. If that’s what you’re after then it’s perfect.
Mr T M Edwards – July 2019
It's our third time travelling with Simpson and we really rate them. They are small enough to be expert and care about their customers but large enough to be able to provide a great service and get brilliant local deals. Even when things go wrong, they do their best to put it right.
Nicola Cohen – July 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 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.
