We thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday in Villa Jolio. The villa and surroundings itself were beautiful and spacious, and its location was perfect. The open-plan villa was lovely, as was the large outdoor veranda. The pool was a really good size with plenty of sunbeds and lots of space around the pool. The air con was great and kept the villa cool even when 41 degrees outside! The Celay hotel next door was great – very helpful and friendly staff with a good bar for food and drinks. A five minute walk away is a good choice of bars and restaurants, a water park and a short ride away is Hisarönü with its lively bars, shops, and restaurants. Loads of info prior to the holiday from the owners, great communication and we were allowed a late check-out. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to go back again soon. Thank you for having us!

Our family of six adults enjoyed every minute of the stay at Villa Jolio. Great location, friendly staff that took care of us and villa, helpful owners recommendations. We will be back for sure.
I have only one recommendation: some kitchen supplies should be revised and updat ed. It would be nice to have a coffee maker.

After our latest visit to Villa Jolio (which have been numerous) we continue to thoroughly enjoy the ambiance and the environment no less than we have always done. Our recommendation will always be that this is a place of tranquility and enjoyment with excellent facilities. One can not fail to appreciate this villa and its environs.

A really wonderful villa with everything you could possibly need. We loved relaxing on the large terrace overlooking the well maintained pool and garden. The children had lots of fun here as the villa is so spacious. It is extremely handy having the Celay Hotel next door, everyone there is very friendly The villa is very clean, well equipped, has a beautiful pool and is in good proximity to Olu Deniz. We had a fantastic family holiday.

We have utilised the facilities of Villa Jolio on several occasions and it continues to provide an excellent base for a wonderful holiday in Turkey.
It is still highly recommened to anyone that wishes to visit this region, as the Ovens family and the Celay proprietors and personnel complement your stay in this ideal location.
It is our intention to visit the Villa again sometime in 2012.
What an amazing place! The Villa felt like a home with everything you could possibly need or want there. The staff at the Celay Hotel next door were so friendly and helpful and extremely welcoming. We couldnt have asked for a better place to stay in terms of location either. The local bus service is excellent, very cheap and very regular! There is so much to see and do and really one week was not enough. There was a very helpful folder in the Villa with lots of useful information and recommendations. The location of the Villa is just perfect for relaxing - no traffic noise etc. and the views are just stunning. The accomodation is of the highest standard and so clean. The whole holiday was just perfect in every detail.
Briefly... the most wonderful place .. it certainly lived up to my friends recommendation... Thankyou Kim. I hope that we have the chance to return soon - particularly now that we are beginning to take advantage of our recent semi retirement situation. Thankyou John and Liz
