It is the second year in a row that we visited Croatia. The first time we were astonished by the beauty of the country itself. This year however, we were suprised about the appropriateness of the accomodation in Viganj on the south-west shore of Peljesac peninsula.
This recently built modern house is fully equiped and immediately feels like home. A refrigirator, a dishwasher, a washing machine so we didn't have to worry about bringing too much clothes. Quite convenient if you have children. There were also towels, sheets,... There is no need for a dryer since the temperature easily rose to 30°C, and this in the beginning of september. The airconitioning with remote control provided a much appreciated cool breeze in the evening. And even is the weather is to good to spend too much of the day inside, the fullsize flatscreen television came quite handy to look at the pictures we took during the day or watch a movie at night. The owners have a child of the same age as ours so besides a babybed and chair, childrens toys and were abundant. The childrensbedroom also had room for two older children. The wifi connection made it possible to share our experiences with friends & family withouth making endless long distance calls.
The wooden floor in the mezzanine bedroom made the place all the more charming. A second bedroom with double bed made it possible for our parents to come over for a midweek and spend time with our daughter. This allowed us to make use of the mountenbikes that came with the house and discover the beautifull countrysight and seasight. The equally beatiful iseland Korcula (birthplace of Marco Polo) is a must to visit. However we needn't take our car to do so since a ferry service located at a 5 minute walk took us there and back. The bay, visible from our favorite spot on the beach allowed us to look at the beautiful yahts and sailboats visiting from Dubrovnik. From that same spot I could launch my kite and enter the water. The temperature of the adreatic sea is also ideal for swimming.
On top of that there were nice restaurants with seaview at a walking distance where one could enjoy the local food and wine. I must say I also enjoyed a cocktail from one of the nearby beach bars. Ther was aksi a local supermarket where you could buy most elementary products. The house provided everything so we didn't have to worry about anything and could relax and enjoy our holliday.
We plan to go back to the same house in the near future.
