  • Simply luxurious
  • Stylish and contemporary
  • Stunning views
  • Ideal for large families or groups of friends

The stylish and contemporary villa sits above Kalamar Bay in a dramatic elevated position next to Villa Lapis.

With four en-suite bedrooms and its own rooftop bar, the villa has the feel of a luxurious small hotel, ideally suited to groups of friends or families looking for a high degree of comfort. The crowning glory is the ultra-glamorous swimming pool, with a specially designed shallow end which allows you to take your sun lounger right into the water: a first in Kalkan and an innovative way to keep cool! The view from here is simply mesmerising, encompassing the whole electric-blue sweep of Kalamar bay and its islands in the distance. For those looking for a bit more action, the Kalamar Beach Club is just a short drive away with a good choice of watersports on offer.

Zaffre’s roof terrace is a natural focal point in the early evening; enjoy the perfect sundowner here before dinner in Kalkan, or settle in for a magical evening under the stars in your own private bar.

For larger groups, Villa Zaffre can be combined with the five bedroom Villa Lapis. Although next door, both properties are entirely independent and relatively private from one another.

Customer feedback

Simpson Travel is a superb company. We have never booked a holiday with such an efficient company, they made everything so easy. Villa Zaffre was stunning, we have never stayed in anything so wonderful. We will definitely be using them again in the future and cannot recommend them highly enough.
K Whitehead – October 2018

From start to finish our holiday to the stunning Villa Zaffre was perfect. Wonderful pool, luxurious poolside furniture and breathtaking views. Loved every minute of our visit to Kalkan. Hope to return next year.
Patricia Kelly – October 2018

What a splendid place. To contravene our cardinal rule of 30+ years of travel, we are actually thinking about coming back to the same place on holiday for once, it was that good! Thank you.
Bayley Family – September 2018

Villa Zaffre is a stunning villa. We had three generations staying and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Kalkan and its people are very friendly and welcoming. The restaurants are never ending in their selections and the Beach Clubs add an additional element to the town.
Mrs Lacey – August 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 loved our first visit to Kalkan. Villa Zaffre has amazing views and was a perfect base for all our family and friends. Would highly recommend Kirsti, the local representative, and Simpson Travel to anyone. We all want to go back!
Mrs Conway – July 2018

The villa overlooking Kalkan and Kalamar bays was spectacular in every way. The accommodation was beautiful and the views spectacular. Everything was tastefully done – from the kitchen equipment to the poolside furniture. We were sorry to leave!
Mr Johnson – June 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.

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 2019 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.
