About Julia Sondack

I'm a happy Londoner with a fun & lively family and equally lively if not a teeny bit crazy dog whom we all adore. I've always enjoyed travelling and my first encounter with Turkey was over 10 years ago when we stayed as a large family group in Oludeniz - not more than 30 minutes from Kalkan and we were bowled over then by just how much there is for everyone to do in South West Turkey - no matter their tastes. We found the locals friendly, humorous and welcoming and of course loved the food!

By profession I'm an Interior Furnisher and have been working in people's homes both in the UK and abroad for nearly 20 years. Thus the project of Villa Kalkan Charm was a perfect marriage for me of doing the thing I love in a place I adore.

When I arrive at the Villa I breathe in the air let out a big sigh, relish the view, enjoy the peace and sense of freedom from everyday responsibilities. Its very easy to relax there.

Julia Sondack purchased this villa in 2014

Why Julia Sondack chose Turkey

The property itself would suit many different groups of people. Sleeping 8+ over 4 double bedrooms means its more than possible to have 2 families stay together or also perfect for a group of friends. A small fitness party would be able to make use of the upstairs outdoor terrace - this would be well suited to yoga, pilates, tai chi or a gentle sport which could be taught as the sun rises or evenings whilst the sun is setting. Its also an ideal spot for dive buddies to stay as there are 20+ dive sites within easy reach of the villa.

The villa has the advantage of not being in the centre of Kalkan in terms of a little serenity but its near enough that you can dip into whatever you fancy be it a meze at a local restaurant or dancing into the wee small hours at one Kalkan's 2 small night clubs.

There is an assortment of shopping in town from supermarkets to arty jewellery boutiques, chic dress and handbag shops and of course the market which is present in town every Thursday.

The great thing is if you would rather stay in your own company the villa's kitchen is fully equipped with every utensil, crockery, cutlery and glassware item you could possibly need. And if cooking al fresco is your scene then you'll be able to make perfect use of our new barbeque awaiting your culinary skills on the lower terrace.

What makes this villa unique

Ooooh and did I mention the views?

Ok so possibly once or twice but I cannot convey just how awesome these are from the villa, from both terraces at any time of day or indeed night. I have been known many a time to sit on the upper terrace - an area with virtually no light pollution - into the small hours, surrounded by a blanket of a million stars - its simply phenomenal! As you may well appreciate if you come from a major city as I do, this is something I rarely get to see. I could not tell you what time of day I love the most at the villa as the view and feel of the place is equally wonderful as the sun moves around projecting different hues of light and warmth from east to west but I will give you a top tip. For a highly gratifying and pleasurable experience make yourself a delicious cold drink, cocktail or pour yourself a glass of wine as the heat falls out of the day and watch the sun set over the mountains to the west....breathe it in and.... relax.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I've booked mine 😉򒐠....... If you are considering a holiday in Turkey this year I can highly recommend the outstanding services of Julia @ Holiday Homes Turkey. An amazing lady with a wealth of knowledge and experience of Turkey, specifically Kalkan. Julia took care of us from the word go patiently allowing us to choose a Villa from her extensive luxurious collection available for rental, of which we chose #VillaKalkanCharm a delightful comfortable villa set in a peaceful location with private infinity pool & very close access to the main town. Julia arranged our flights & transfers, provided us with expert trip advice & tailor-made excursions, boat trips to Kekova to see the Sunken City and we spent time relaxing and fishing on the boat it was a spectacular day. We also had made available to us when booking with Holiday Homes Turkey various discount cards for local boutiques, restaurants and cocktail bars. Turkey is an amazing country, the historical places to visit are a wonderment, the people are simply lovely, generous and kind .... I fell in love with everything there and can't wait to be there again soon. 😍򓐮 It will be your best decision & holiday destination - contact Julia Sondack

Kalkan and its surrounding areas literally have something of interest for everybody, regardless of age, fitness or taste which is why it makes it an ideal holiday location for children, young adults and our slightly more mature clients with discerning preferences – all can enjoy a multitude of various activities, tours and choices of relaxation.

For our sporty guests we recommend a visit to Kalamar beach (just 5mins by car) from the villa. Here you can easily spend a day or so trying out all manner of aqua sporting activities including, Scuba, banana boat rides, skiing, fly fishing, kayaking, pedal boats ,snorkelling or swimming in the crystal clear waters of the bay where you can climb up onto the water trampoline (I haven’t yet found a way to elegantly disembark from that yet!) or simply relax, read a book and soak up the sun on a bed with full bar service and free wi-fi.

Do you have a love of history? Villa Kalkan Charm is ideally situated to visit a plethora of ancient historical sites. This area known as Lycia has been beautifully preserved and many significant structures have been painstakingly pieced together by local and international archaeologists. Xanthos and Letoon are a mere 30min drive away and listed by UNESCO – I won’t spoil the legend of Xanthos but it’s pretty incredible! There is also a wealth of other ancient ruins all with interesting history showing us development of civilisations over more than a 2000year period and all within a 2 hour drive radius of Kalkan. Why not explore Myra, Demre, Kekova with its sunken city, Olympos, Phellos, Phaselis, Patara, Tlos, Kaunos and Kaya Koyu? Ok maybe that’s a few too many but you can always save some for your next visit.

The Lycian Way is a 500km long footpath which stretches from Oludeniz (near Fethiye) to Hisarcandir (20km from Antalya). The Sunday Times listed it in its top 10 walks of the world however we wouldn’t recommend you do it all in one go but certainly to do parts of it would be most satisfying. Again it is steeped in history but not recommended for the faint hearted as the terrain can be heavy going in places and also not an activity to contemplate in the height of summer unless you have been in training but spring or autumn are perfect times.

The areas around Kalkan are blessed with beautiful beaches ideal for all from small quiet shingle bays such as Butterfly Valley ( normally accessed by boat), to large expanses of golden sand such as Patara which boasts 18km of the yellow stuff and is protected along with Iztuzu and Olympos beaches as they are home to egg laying loggerhead turtles, so after 7pm the beach belongs to them. Whatever facilities and attributes you like in a beach just tell us and we will happily recommend the best one for you.

Again for the more active and perhaps a little daring visitor there are a range of activities such as horse riding, jeep safari and tandem paragliding – yes if someone wants you to jump off a cliff you really can!

However we do advise that if you intend to do any of these sports activities to check for insurance coverage before you leave the UK – most regular travel polices do not normally cover them.
