Hooked on top of a small cliff dominating the center of the village, Villa Julia has more to offer than any other rental villa...

A few steps away from the village and its shops (the Paseo is at about 400 meters), Villa Julia is located on a small hill overlooking the ocean and the village houses, at an altitude of about 100 meters; it will easily host up to 11 guests in the greatest comfort, among a contemporary luxurious decor which combines sobriety and refinement.

NEW : natural rock jacuzzi on the roof + lounge area with BBQ

Villa Julia Concept: Villa Julia was designed by a team of young and very promising Argentinian architects (the ones who designed the acclaimed Villa Sofia) with 3 objectives :

1) Contemporary lines : the owner wish was that Villa Julia offer clear modern looks, but do not look like any other villa in Las Terrenas; also volumes had to be big and different, adapting to the main asset of the location : the views!!!

2) Integration into nature : the plans of Villa Julia were thought to 'hide' the house in the nature without spoiling the panoramas; the main building roof is even covered by a beautiful garden of lawn and tropical plants!

3) Comfort and privacy : Villa Julia is luxuriously equipped with the best quality modern furniture and equipments, and nonetheless close to the beach and village, offers the quietest environment in town!


Facilities and services: Villa Julia offers a full range of facilities :

- automatic portal, private parking, full staff, day&night security, 6/7 cleaning service, optional cook, ...

- air conditioning, modern bathrooms, privates patios and terraces, outdoor showers

- washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, wine cellar, oven, microwave, outdoor grill, ice maker, ...

- large flat TV screen, satellite, internet access, DVD, hifi system, nightly colored pool, ...

- infinity pool with a flying sunbathing deck and numerous depths platforms, colored laminar jets tunnel....

At Villa Julia, everything was designed for your comfort !

Entertainment: Besides the classical activities of a tropical destination, Villa Julia's main asset is to be located in... Las Terrenas !!!

Las Terrenas is unique :

Excursions to National parks or local producers are a few minutes away.

For the watersports oriented : scuba-diving, surf, windsurf, kitesurf, sailing or deep sea fishing....

Did you know that kite-surf was invented in Las Terrenas ?

Do you prefer biking, horseback riding or golfing ?

Gastronomy is not just a word here ! The big number of Italian, Spanish and French residents of Las Terrenas logically made it a culinary destination for all the fine food adepts. Besides the tasty local cuisine, restaurants serving food from all over the world have flourished : seafood, pastas, pizzas, sushi, Tex Mex, burgers, beach BBQ, French elite gastronomy, paellas, tapas, etc...

And if you just want to party? You will just have not enough time to experience all what Las Terrenas has to offer !

About Patrick

In love of las Terrenas since my first visit in 2004, I immediately chose it as my second home... It is now my first home and I truly enjoy making my best to make our guests discover our paradise !

Patrick purchased this villa in 2009

Why Patrick chose La Iglesia

When I arrived in LT, there was no luxury villa in the area. I chose this 'loma' (hill) because of its fantastic location : in the middle of the village, at a few steps from the beach, but very quiet and really above the crowd, in a very peaceful site which benefits from the Alises Winds.

I wanted to build a luxury home, but totally unique in its conception and decoration; reading our guests comments, I think I really reached my goal !

Villa Julia is unique !

Guestbook comments from the owner

La villa Julia est extraordinaire. Très belle construction, grandes chambres très belles, maison ultra moderne, cadre superbe. Nous avons passé 8 jours de rêve. Nous recommandons vivement cette location pour 8 jours, 15 jours ou plus !

Stunning house and views

  • 3 of 5

We went on a family trip for New Year and as soon as we arrived we fell in love with the house. It is exactly as you see in the pictures. Tori and Lala (housekeepers) are very helpful!! However, we had some issues on our stay that we tried to address with the Owner (Patrick) while we were there, but we never received an answer. First issue: a bed was missing. Our stay was for 13 people for 9 nights, so prior our arrival all requested details were sent. For the first night, our housekeeper came up with a temporary solution, and the next day, the bed was there, problem solved!

As the days went by, issues started to arise, the MOST important was that the refrigerator broke down and was NEVER repaired or changed, so we had to throw away of our food twice. UNACCEPTABLE!!

Some other features like the main dining room light and hot tub did not work. Some of the furniture had termites. The day before we left we started to feel a bad smell coming from the wall. We were told that probably a frog was dead. Unbelievable!!!

On New Years day, housekeepers just came to prepare breakfast and do the dishes, but did not clean the bathrooms, neither do the beds nor change the towels. Even though we understand it was new years day, daily fees were charged for services to be rendered, and were not performed. This is also unacceptable!!

So we ended up leaving the house happy for the moments shared but a bittersweet taste of a poor customer service by the owner and manager, so we will nor return. This house NEEDS MAJOR REPAIRS!!

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

We typically don't repeat vacation destinations much but Las Terrenas is an exception (3rd time) and Villa Julia is a big reason why. Just meets our expectations in every angle. This property along with the staff make you feel like millionaires in a totally unique freedom vacation area. Being close to the locals and village action is part of the experience. Great amenities, great service, secured but free at the same time. We have to say; we'll come back again for sure. Be sure to rent ATVs as it adds to the thrill of this great vacation destination. We just hope it won't be too commercialized by the US tourism so that it keeps it's eclectic european flare.

Simply the best. Don't hesitate to book; just keep one week for us :)

Luxury house surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

Villa Julia : the architecture and the quality of the house makes it the ultimate place to spend your holiday in luxury surrounded by nature and wildlife.

The view is superb: overlooking Las Terrenas and seaview. Located within a 7 minutes walk from the centre of Las Terrenas.

The staff was very friendly and helpfull. They took care of us and they the house very clean and well-maintained.

One of our best places to stay during our travelling through the Dominican Republic.

Owner's Response: Dear Olivier, Thank you for taking the time to share your encouraging comments with everybody. I am extremely happy that you enjoyed so much Villa Julia, the service we provided, and the beauty of Las Terrenas of course ! I take advantage of this opportunity to thank all our past guests who took some time to write comments here about the good time they had with us. At Villa Julia (and Villa Sofia), we pay particular attention to our valued guests, and because we know that nothing is ever perfect, we continuously try to improve our services, and listen to our guests comments. Olivier, thank you again for your nice words. We hope to host you again soon at Villa Julia or Villa Sofia ! Patrick

Honeymoon heaven

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I spent our honeymoon at Villa Julia in Las Terrenas. We were there from 9/15 to 9/22/2013. What an amazing place!!!! The owner Patrick was very easy to work with. The property manager Michel was great as were Leo and Tory, who took care of the house. Tory is a wonderful cook!!! Thank you! We rented a car and enjoyed the surrounding areas as well as Las Terrenas. We coordinated excursions through Flora Tours. If you like fine dinning you have got to visit El Lugar (The Place) in Las Terrenas. The owner Max is a wonderful chef. They cook on a grill over coals from a wood burning fireplace. In addition, if you sit at the bar, you can see them prepare all the food in front of your eyes. The food is some of the best I have ever eaten. What an experience. Patrick the villa owner introduced us to Max. Thank you! The home itself is beautiful. What a great infinity pool to relax in and see the ocean. Thank you so much for making our honeymoon so wonderful. We will be back!!!!!!!

We personally have never stayed at such a wonderfully architecturally designed, superbly situated, open and inviting, entirely relaxing house as this before, so it has inspired me to write a review. It was so good in fact I hesitate selfishly to let this secret location get too well known especially if we are planning to return we would be afraid we may not be able to book it again. Well enough selfishness. My wife and two grown children came with three friends from Guatemala to visit the DR and this portion of our trip was completed beautifully with our visit. One very important detail to consider was the great help that was there; Tory and Leo; we had such a great time with them cooking together, laughing and making us feel at home. The view was so great day after day. Our moments were so special - laughing and spending time together - these moments will never be forgotten. A grand applause to the owner and his architects and great decisions to have created such a masterpiece; better that it is enjoyed for years to some by all of you. Now I am convinced this is the way to have a vacation. Enjoy as we did!

Car: recommended

Villa Julia is perfectly located, in a very quiet environment, but close to everything you need for ideal vacations in Las Terrenas.

Between a visit to the National Park of Los Haitises and a long bath in the clear waters of the Cascadas del Limon, well deserved after a beautiful horseback climb through the forest, you will have plenty of time to join a quad (4 wheels) excursion and discover cultural specifics like a family owned coffee plantation and enjoy tropical fruits or cigar tasting.

For the watersports oriented, surf, windsurf, kitesurf, sailing or deep sea fishing are available through local clubs, hotels or agencies. With a total security.

Did you know that kite-surfing was invented in Las Terrenas ?

For the more adventurous, a scuba-diving trip among colorful tropical fishes can be a fantastic option; unless they prefer, during wintertime, a tour to Samana Bay with Kim Bedall's team to watch the biggest that Mother Nature has to offer: whales !
