“A wonderful family holiday”
Villa Julia proved just the right place for the fifteen of us spanning three generation. Aged fron 68 to 4 years old we all found it a great place to be. it is homely, comfortable and unpretentious with 6 bedrooms, all en-suite, and a total of four double beds and five singles. The outside space is great and we only went indoors to prepare food or sleep. The pool and surrounding area is good and has a shower and toilet which were very useful. There are plenty of tables and chairs for outside dining and a big veranda with sofas for night time chilling. The views are amazing in every direction and the only sounds are natural; sea, birds, insects, oh and the Muezzin if the wind is in the right direction. The beach is gravelly sand and water shoes are essential, the canoes and rowing boat were great fun for all. The villagers are friendly, kind and helpful. Gulcan, the housekeeper is lovely. Not a chic boutique destination but oh so much nicer and Turkish! We loved it.
“WOW, a proper slice of paradise”
What can i say. We travelled with 6 adults and 8 children and couldnt have found a more amazing place. If you like being away from the hustle and bustle and experiencing a bit of the local culture... Like waking to the sound of the sea washing up twenty feet away.... Like jumping off a jetty underneath a blanket of stars at 2 o'clock in the morning.... Having boats turn up on your doorstep to whisk you off to the most beautiful restaurants.... Lounging around a fresh saltwater pool..... Playing in kayaks and rowing boats..... BBQing in the corner of the beach and eating with the waves rolling up at your feet..... Being treated fantastically by the locals who cant do enough for you including organising any trips out you could wish for.... Then this is the place for you. Take a trip out to swim in the most beautiful waterfalls. Eat a the captains table. Have your shopping delivered from the local shop. Feel the beautiful breeze blowing into the cove and watch the amazing boats roll in and roll out. The villa is a little dated and could possibly do with a little bit of attention but it didnt bother us, everything worked as required. If anything the condition of the villa suited the environment. At times i felt as though i was on a desert island. The 8 kids aged between 3 and 15 didnt ask for anything, they were too busy leaping into the sea, out in the boats or jumping in and out of the pool. A trip for very cheap ice creams and a play in the park just opposite the captains table was there only real treat and it was all they wanted because they had everything. We will go back.
“Wonderful location with stunning scenery for truely relaxing holiday.”
Villa Julia really is a special place. We were lucky with the weather for this time of year and had clear blue skies every day. The children (and therefore the adults!) were so happy between the pool and the jumping off the jetty that we did not need to go far. Its great to have complimentary canoes and rowing boat as well. The kitchen could do with a bit of an update, but we did not spend much time in there and were able to eat outside under the bouganvilia for all our meals. Salih at the Captain's Table Restaurant really could not be more helpful, you are very lucky to have him on hand. I cannot praise him highly enough. The best calimari and he also organised boat trips etc. for us. We did stop in Marmaris for food shopping on the way from the airport, although had we realised that the local shops would have been open when we arrived, we would certainly not have bothered on such a long transfer. Really it was so tricky to be faced with a large foreign supermarket after a long flight that it was not worth the stop and meant that it was nearly dark when we arrived. The local shops were so helpful with deliveries, translation and children's icecreams(!) that we would have preferred to give them our custom all week.
Breath taking spectacular location, clean and comfortable accommodation, lovely local people! Rural turkey at its best!
“Chill out holiday”
We holidayed as a 3 generation family group and had a fabulous holiday! Booking easy & Penny very helpful. Long trip from airport (wished we had missed out supermarket in Marmaris as small local shop open late, has most things and delivers). Villa in fantastic location, we loved swimming, kayaking, rowing, snorkeling over remains, watching the occasional yacht come in, watching the flying fish & jumping off private jetty. Good sized saltwater swimming pool. Villa lovely, not smart but perfect for relaxing with kids. Salih at local restuarant was our local tourist guide and organised boat trips, dinner at other restuarants, mini bus tours, whatever we wanted! We had a lovely relaxing holiday.
“The most relaxing holiday we have ever had”
Sögüt Köyü is a peaceful & remote village. There are grocery stores and a market once a week. There are three restaurants to eat at within walking distance - or they will deliver to you. The marina means there are people going in and out but it is never crowded. And restaurants in surrounding villages will send transport (boat or minibus) to pick you up, and take you back home after your meal. We had a fabulous time at Villa Julia. It was exactly the holiday we were hoping for, complete get away from it all, continual sunshine, perfect views, perfect sea, snorkeling, boat trips, rest and relaxation. And the added bonus was the lovely villagers - so helpful and friendly - they made our stay extra special. No one wanted to leave and we are all suffered from post-holiday blues. Ilkim, the maid, was almost invisible but kept the place looking spotless - well worth the extra cost. And it would have been a different experience altogether without Salih and his family at The Captain's Table, a nearby restaurant. He could not have been more helpful, and in an area where most people (this includes ourselves) do not have a second language his translation skills were invaluable. The taxi guys were great too, we had no worry with the airport transfers at all, which we booked in advance with Penny. We also hired a mini bus during the week and had an enjoyable sight seeing day out. Thoroughly recommend a day boat trip out, we did this twice and it was definitely a highlight. Travelling around the bays, swimming and diving off the boat or just enjoying the amazing scenery. One trip we were taken to a restaurant for lunch, the second time we had a barbecue on the beach. We would return.
“Wonderful views, could do with updating.”
The location is great, at the end of a bay, overlooking the sea and islands. Waking in the morning to the view from the main bedroom, across the veranda to the sea is glorious. You literally walk out of the garden onto the beach - not the best beach in the world, but fabulous sea. And a jetty which is perfect for diving/jumping into the sea, or just standing watching the fish. At the end of the bay are some good restaurants. The locals are great, and the whole area simply stunning. Unspoilt, with women in traditional dress lugging great sacks of stuff, or herding goats, while the men sit outside cafes, sipping tea and playing cards. Be aware if you book that you need to drive on a track which is actually on the sea line - on the day we left, we were actually driving in the sea! And that the bay has within it a boatyard, which brings much-needed employment to the area, but which is decidedly ugly. You cannot see it from the villa, however. Also, there is very little sand, if that is important to you. However, the biggest issue for us was that the whole house needs renovating. There are good sized bedrooms, which are clean, but the beds are dire: really uncomfortable. The kitchen is poor, and the equipment basic, including the oven which didn't work. A great pity, as we were looking for a large house in that area for a family holiday next year, and had the villa been of a higher standard, we would have immediately booked. As it is, we had a great week, but that was in spite of the villa, not because of it.
“a haven of real Turkey”
We found the Villa exactly as described and loved the ability to read in the shade, take out the rowing boat or canoes and watch the children jump off the jetty. We enjoyed the local restaurants with friendly kindly people who made delicious local food, which we could order from the Villa. We would certainly think of going back with family and freinds.
