RESTORED 300 YEAR OLD VILLA, STUNNING VIEWS, IDYLLIC LOCATION, LARGE POOL

Viganj Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 10 plus access to another villa that sleeps 4

The first 4 star rated villa in the area , Villa Vista is a superb example of how to restore a magnificent 300-year-old stone house to its original grandeur with all mod cons. Villa Vista the perfect escape from the stresses of modern life. Sitting above the village of Viganj at the tip of the Peljesac Peninsular, the breathtaking views from the large terrace and large swimming pool take in the length of the island of Korcula and its vineyards, and the beauty of the Medieval Citadel of Korcula Town across the sparkling crystal clear waters of the Adriatic – and this with the sea just 400 meters from the terrace steps.

We also have access to a second villa that sleeps 4 with the possibility to sleep 6. This acts as an ideal overflow or for smaller groups not wanting the rent the larger villa. Please see www.homeaway.co.uk/p1272787.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

A New Zealander living in Woking in the UK for the past 25(!) years, living with my husband Craig, daughter Ella, dog Monty and our chickens..

We fell in love with Croatia on our first trip in 2003 which set us off hunting for our perfect holiday home. We found Villa Vista the next year and set about putting it back to its former self. By all accounts, including the locals, we did a pretty good job of it.

We knew there were a number of old stone houses in the area but bought and renovated this one because of history and commanding position.

We make an active contribution to village life and have made many goods friends in Viganj, our home away from home.

Villa Vista has the best of both worlds in Viganj.

It is a stones throw from the Village - it's shops, bars, restaurants, sea etc., and yet has the peace, calm and unbelievable views due to its enviable position just above the village.

It is tough to beat waking up and being able to see up to 10 Adriatic islands over you morning coffee or tea.

Largest private swimming pool in the area.

Private, secluded position.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

'We have to been to Croatia once before and yet were still surpised by the beauty and diversity of the Peljesac area. This combined with the villa's perfect position and creature comforts made for an exceptional holiday'- The O'Driscolls, Fulham, London.

'The ideal mix of culture, watersports and great food and wine made our family holiday fun for all. Villa Vista is exceptional and we really felt spoilt' - Sam Tremayne and family, New Haw, Surrey.

AWESOME VILLA, WOULD COME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
The photos really don't do the environment justice. This Peninsula is GORGEOUS. We traveled all over Croatia and the views here, the olive trees and vineyards, the quiet little fishing villages, all of it - probably the most beautiful place we visited in Croatia. My husband and I rented Villa Viganj with a group of friends for a low-key wedding just a few weeks ago, and we really just could not have been happier. Jane and her staff were fantastic, extremely professional, and just went above and beyond for us - and voluntarily I might add. We happened to mention casually at the last minute that we were getting married and Jane hooked us up with a stunning location, a water taxi to Korcula and a phenomenal dinner at the Lesic Dimitri. It was all perfect. The house is big enough that none of our group ever felt crowded; there is everything you could need for cooking fantastic meals, the bedrooms are tastefully and well-appointed, its just a short, fragrant stroll down the hill to the crystal clear water - really it was just perfect. Jane provides a TON of information to orient you when you get there, including recommendations for restaurants that are really special experiences. Highly recommended!!! I do suggest renting a car though - the Villa is not easy to get to by public transit and it helps to have a vehicle. Fortunately for us Croatia is just like driving in the US. Thanks Jane for making our vacation a breeze and full of fabulous memories!!

FANTASTIC - WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
There was plenty of space in and around the villa for all to find space, the air con worked well, beds comfy, sufficient number of loos for a full house, etc,etc.
For location, views, atmosphere, peace and tranquility it couldn't be beaten. We thought the locals charming and friendly, the local amenities ideal without being over commercilaised or developed, the local restaurants unpretentious, the water sports and windsurfing in particular, second to none. We thought the villa was just right distance up the hill for adequate effort, peace and seclusion but close enough to the seafront for convenience.
Fantastic, we absolutely loved it!

FAMILY HOLIDAY AT VILLA VISTA

  • 5 of 5
Can thoroughly recommend this property. We were two families holidaying together and there was plenty of room for everyone. Very well maintained and tastefully decorated; clean and well equipped throughout. The owner provided us with a welcome letter which gave us excellent advice about the best places to visit, restaurants, activities, etc. Last but not least, the views from the terrace were absolutely stunning - the photos simply cannot do it justice.

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah,

The house is perfect for two families. We set it up with that as one of our goals and bedroom config works well for that. Stacks of room on the terrace, around the pool and inside means there is always somewhere for children to play as well as somewhere peaceful for us big kids too. I am pleased you got what you did from the welcome letter. There is always something new to do so I look forward to reading about your experiences in the visitor book when I am there next week.

Enjoy the rest of your summer

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN....

  • 5 of 5
Along with 8 other very close friends we arrived at the Villa Vista with a delicious and fun lunch under our belts at nearby Ston for a week's R + R. And that is exactly what it turned out to be, and more! As with most photos, it is difficult to capture just how amazing the view is from the terrace - as far as the eye can see, sparkling sea with the hills and mountains of Korcula as a beautiful backcloth. The large terrace table hosted many a long lunch or dinner and the odd glass or two of excellent local wine and we barbecued fresh local fish a couple of times which was fun.

Inside, this old stone ruin (I believe an old mariner's home) has been skilfully and tastefully renovated to provide everything a large group or family needs during a holiday. A well thought out kitchen, large reception room (if you have to be inside) but does it ever rain? All the beds got rave reviews as did the ample, soft, comfortable pillows. The pool, reached by several steps through sensitively planted flowers and shrubs provided a relaxing area for all of us to swim, sun bathe, read, look at the views and share the odd cocktail or three!

The comprehensive “house book” provided us with all the information we needed to make our holiday very special – information about a day’s yacht trip, sea taxis to a terrific lunch spot with a fab bay for swimming, other suggested day trips, good local restaurants and recommended vineyards to sample the local wine.

All in all a memorable week not only because of the friends we were with but being in a villa that had been brought back to life with a creative vision for the future enjoyment for all. The owners are to be congratulated!

CROATIA 2011

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to thank you for all the arrangements re the renting of Villa Vista for our holiday over the past 2 weeks. We had a FANTASTIC time in your amazing house. The location is of course second to none. Local people are lovely and very welcoming everywhere. As an example, when the road up from the church was blocked off as we arrived, we stopped to ask the way and a gentleman from one of the nearby houses telephoned his friend, then hopped on his moped to lead us up to the villa!

Weather was great, which always helps but it was the the huge impression of an area completely unspoilt, combined with living in a lovely house that remains in our memories.
