The stylish and contemporary villa sits above Kalamar Bay in a dramatic elevated position. 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.

Our first holiday with Simpson Travel and we will definitely book with you again. Everything - booking, transfers, villa was trouble free and our rep was available and extremely helpful.

Mrs Deborah West, October 2023

We had an amazing holiday thanks to Simpson Travel. Kay, our rep, has been extremely helpful and we enjoyed the villa with all its amenities and the fantastic panoramic views. The choice of restaurants in Kalkan is exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip on Poseidon. All eight of us found our first visit to Turkey very enjoyable especially meeting friendly people. All the facilities in the villa are good and the infinity pool is beautiful with amazing views across the bay. Most of all, the service from Simpson Travel from the booking process to arrivals and departure was amazing. We will recommend and we will be returning!

Rich, Anita, Trew, Sharon, Neil, Kim, Mark and Nikki, September 2023

Thank you Kay and the Simpson team – we have had a truly wonderful holiday. Best pool ever and a welcome reward after the steep climb up the hill! We loved Korsan Kitchen – the mezze, the barbecues at the villa, the coffee and croissants and the evening cocktails. Also loved traditional breakfasts at Sahika Bahçe in the mountains – superb! We loved all the shops and roof terrace cafés and restaurants – fabulous holiday spot. Thank you.

The King family, August 2023

Another wonderful week in Kalkan. Wonderful weather and incredible views. As usual enjoyed our drive to Bouzivigan and the surrounding area, with lunch in Islamlar. Many thanks to Yasin and family and looking forward to next year.

Stuart, Val and Ollie Mullins, June 2023

We’ve all really enjoyed Kalkan. Our highlights were the boat trip, Coast restaurant, Mey & Meze, Zest Beach Club, Kalamaki restaurant and fresh juices from Korsan Kitchen. Kay has been brilliant at immediately sorting out any little problems we had at the villa.

Annie, Ziggy, Max, Amber & Eve, June 2023

Our post-Covid return to Villa Zaffre was most enjoyable. Our Simpson rep, Kitty, was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our stay, and we look forward to hopefully returning again next year.

Melvyn Taylor, October 2022

Villa Zaffre is amazing! We had a fantastic week of sun, visiting ancient sites and a memorable trip on Poseidon.

The Chilwit & Young families, September 2022

A really fantastic week in a superb villa. So much to do and see. Kitty recommended superb restaurants, the Poseidon tr is a must and so is the Whistler sunset trip. We had 4 yng adults with us who loved the bars.

Mel & Steve, September 2022

Wonderful week in a beautiful villa. Lots to do and see, excellent recommendations from Kitty. Travelled a little and relaxed a lot.

Andrew, Claire, Calvin, Zoe & Libby, July 2022

We have travelled with Simpson Travel several times now and can highly recommend them. All elements of dealing with them are excellent - from the actual villas and destinations to booking and subsequent communication with them. They make sure you are well looked after and tend to any question or difficulty quickly, effectively and courteously. We will always look at booking with them before any other travel company.

Ian Tichias, July 2022

A lovely villa in an excellent position.

Peter, October 2019

We have had a fabulous 2-week family holiday in Kalkan. We stayed in two villas to try out two locations and this worked out very well. Both villas were beautifully done out and both in great locations. One high up on the hills overlooking the whole of Kalkan and the other lower down overlooking both Kalkan and Kalamar bays. They both had fabulous outdoor space with amazing views, fab kitchens and shower rooms and comfortable bedrooms. Simpson staff were all fantastic and the local staff who helped out the Simpson team. Everyone was friendly helpful and very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. Kalkan is a lovely place filled with wonderful restaurants, bars and shops with great boat trips on the harbour. We had a wonderful day out at sea on the Poseidon boat put on by Simpson and that was fantastic. We also did the Turkish baths which was great fun. We visited Islamlar and Patara and the ruins are incredible. All in all another wonderful holiday with Simpson. Thank you.

Jennifer McBryde, September 2019

We really enjoyed our time in Villa Zaffre, especially the day out on the Poseidon and the Hamam. The villa is lovely and the views are amazing. The town is charming and we did lots of shopping. Overall a brilliant holiday.

Joanna, David & family, July 2019

Villa Zaffre excellent. Fabulous pool and views to die for. Simpson did not disappoint!

Mrs Eaves, July 2019

Villa wonderful, but the best thing was the resort rep who was so nice and helpful, an absolute star!

Johanna, June 2019

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

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

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.

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.
