About Julia and Tarkan
*Corona Virus Update* Our historic apartments make comfortable, secure, medium term homes and we understand and respect the issues of social distancing and isolation. The cleaning we provide is suitably thorough and we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. Extra cleanings are an option during your stay. If you're looking for somewhere to hide away for a while, please don't hesitate to message us to discuss details and special rates for these difficult circumstances. ***** We've been busy, building up a collection of lovely historical apartments in Galata, our favourite part of Istanbul. We've personally renovated most of them and stay in them ourselves whenever we can. Very recently we've added a sweet flat in the UK's Cotswolds into the mix. 17 years ago we met in Istanbul, Tarkan's home city, while I was there for a photography assignment. Since then we've led international lives together, based in Istanbul, Singapore and now England, my original country. Along the way we've raised our son, Eren, across the cultures as we've steadily grown this holiday apartment project, our second baby. We see it as a way to find balance in our family life and to always have a home in our best-loved city. We understand from our own experiences, what makes a great city-break stay and we try our very hardest to deliver it to you in Istanbul. For this we've won i-escape's global Guest Award for 'Best City Apartment' two years running and Tripadvisor's Certificate of Excellence 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 (2020 isn’t announced yet ;). We are also listed in many guidebooks. Your questions and booking will be handled by us. On your arrival our manager Taskin and friendly team with their natural Turkish hospitality, will welcome you to your apartment, pass over your keys and explain practicalities and the neighborhood. You'll have as much or as little help as you choose and we're sure you'll soon feel at home in the cosmopolitan an
