Our stay at villa Julia was enjoyed by all our family. Beautiful large villa with plenty of room for all 11 of us ranging in ages 8 to 74. The furniture was dated but suited us as it was a comfortable place to be without worrying too much . Lots of outside seating areas and a great balcony overlooking the bay outside 3 bedrooms on the first floor. All six bedrooms all with ensuite (plus a shower and wc by the pool) were excellent with such a large family. We enjoyed the lovely large clean sea pool with 12 loungers and many hours spent on the table tennis table outside the villa. The villa is situated in an enviable position with the beach outside the front entrance, fabulous views and located in a quiet fishing village with several restaurants and three very small shops. Penny the owner was moored on the jetty for most of our stay, and was such a lovely lady we enjoyed her company and knowledge of the area. The only downside to the holiday was that the boats and jetty (only free for 4 days out of 15) we thought would there for us to use were not available, there was only a canoe which had a slow leak. We had planned to use the jetty and boats to fish in the sea and also take the children out around the lovely bays but this was not an option as neither were available to us . We managed to borrow a kayak from one of the restaurant owners which was very generous of him. Gulcan, our cleaner, was a gem. Such a lovely lady and not at all intrusive and a great help. We did have a fabulous holiday in a great villa situated in a lovely unspoilt part of Turkey and would definitely return but would check out the boat situation before booking.
A unique villa built into the hillside in quiet village, furnished with beautiful Turkish rugs, traditional copper pans, colourful pottery tiles, brimming with personal objects, including a piano, making it feel very homely and a very friendly cat. Delightful garden with plants cascading down from one terrace to the next until you reach the utterly private swimming pool. Wonderfully quiet, just birdsong and of course calls from the Mosque at prayer time. Pretty terraces beside the house, with built in stone BBQ just outside kitchen and beside it 2 large sofas and stone table for outdoor meals. Any window gives lovely view of the garden. 10 mins. by car to the beach.
Ayfer always available on the phone to fix any problems. This villa will appeal to anyone who likes the traditional. We loved it.
Plumbing slightly quirky but endless supply of hot water. Steep road up to drive, best to arrive in daylight to find the villa.
