11 of us, old friends and new have just returned home from Villa Julia. Our stay in this lovely village was wonderful, peaceful and relaxing. My son was keen to make memories and we certainly did that.
Villa Julia is in a wonderful spot on the edge of the sea. The people in the village are warm and welcoming and can’t do enough for you.
We ate almost every night at the ‘Captains Table’ fresh produce, expertly cooked and the best calamari I have ever eaten. Special mention to Carlos whose warmth and friendship was the icing on the cake, organising everything from lifts to individual food requests and local information.
There are several restaurants and cafes and it is well worth a trip to the next village to eat, they will collect and return you in their boat, the food was excellent and the journey back under the stars was magical.
The villa itself is rustic think more ‘the Durralls’ than the Dorchester. If 5* luxury is your bag this is not the place for you. There are plenty of seating areas to get together or have some time out. The bedrooms are basic but clean and the beds are comfortable. Plenty of bugs etc as you would expect so come armed with protection. The air con is very efficient.
Gulcan, who overseas the property and cleans, organises and takes care of everyone was a star, very unobtrusive and welcoming.
Mustafa collected us from the airport at a very late hour and the return journey wcas equally as relaxed and organised.
We had 2 never to be forgotten boat trips with Captain Harry aka Ariffe, fabulous food and hospitality and he even came to the aid of our 2 youngest in the party when they got a little lost in another village ensuring they got safely home.
We made great use of the canoe at the villa and the breath taking views were something I will always remember.
If you are looking for a relaxing break, a taste of real Turkey and don’t mind basic accomodation then don’t hesitate.
Special thanks to Gulcan, Mustafa and Captain Harry, Carlos we love you, see you all next year, can’t come soon enough.
Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday...the appartment was perfect.
Ellen and her husband were always around if we ever needed some advice or just a chat.
Made good use of the washing machine which ment we did not have to bring too many clothes.
The dish washer was nice luxury too!
We did not go hungry either because on arrival the fridge was stocked with milk, butter, tomatoes, water, apple juice, bread etc as well as a full fruit bowl....oohhh and a lovely cake Ellen had made for us.
Loads of towels, cleaning liquids, gloves, soap and the list goes on and on.
Basically your kitted out to go from day 1....a home from home!
We used the bus a lot because it passed the end of the drive every 15 mins or less and only cost £1 for 4 of us!
Bus no 3 you need there and back...simple.
Bit of a steep walk the last 150m to the appartment so may not be suitable for those how find steep hills a struggle.
Nice quiet location.
