About Julia Deans
We are a Toronto-based family of four and started visiting the Callas area while living in Asia with young children. We have a wide variety of interests but all love coming to Callas to relax, explore, and immerse ourselves in all things French.
Julia Deans purchased this house in 2005
Why Julia Deans chose Callas
We bought our villa after renting in the area for many years. Every time we left, we had a longer list of things to do on our next visit, and so we knew we'd never get bored! The list now includes everything from great markets and restaurants to running routes and basketball courts to beaches and cultural sites - we love sharing it with our guests. Callas is also a great place to relax - have a morning cafe au lait in the square, a leisurely lunch on the terrace and an afternoon reading under the shade of the mulberry tree or by the pool. Perfection!
