Viganj Villa Rental Photos and Description
Architect-redesigned in idyllic tranquil location with stunning sea views
This family-owned villa was fully renovated in 2005 and updated in 2010 and provides unbeatable views over the channel between Viganj and Korcula Island. All 4 bedrooms are large with lovely sea views. Viganj is a charming, unspoilt village combining peaceful tranquillity with an array of activities, attractions and culinary pleasures. We provide full advice on beaches, restaurants, shops, local travel, maps and activities including windsurfing, wake boarding, kite surfing, boat hire, ferries, scuba diving, mountain biking, climbing, rambling and tennis.
The living room and dining room are both 6m x 5m and the latter is open-plan with the kitchen. The living room has glass double-doors opening onto the top stone terrace with outdoor dining table and chairs and a traditional stone BBQ. On the second stone terrace to the front are recliners that are just perfect for surveying the scene below on sun-soaked days! At the back of the villa is a small stone terrace set against Mt. Illijah.
Villa Philomena is well managed by a lovely English-speaking lady living nearby. She is on hand to answer any requests during your stay.
Services provided with Villa Philomena include: weekly clean and linen launder (full linen and beach towels are provided), 24-hour Emergency Service - English speaking, Welcome Hamper (water, bread, jam and cooking basics).
With its beautifully clear and calm seawater, channelled landscape and consistent maestral wind at sea, Viganj is hugely popular for its wide variety of water sports. The World and European windsurfing championships have each been held in Viganj in recent years, and the Croatian windsurfing championships are held here each August.
For a real sense of Croatian culture, check out the local events, festivals and concerts. There is the Loviste August festival and the Narkovan September festival is a fantastic party in in an ancient, abandoned village between Loviste and Viganj - the locals are very sociable and welcoming!
There are also many vineyards on the road from Dubrovnik - and in the Orebic area. It's a little-known fact that Croatia produces some wonderful wines. And fear not, there are good producers and providers around Viganj!
We all had a great time at Villa Philomena and thoroughly enjoyed the interior, its outstanding views, stroll down through the trees to the beach, moonlit nights on the terrace. Wind and kite surfing were wonderful. 2012

'We had a wonderful time at your spectacular villa and all your advice has been most useful. The weather was great every day, we hired the boat you suggested and enjoyed exploring the surrounds by water.' (September 2008)
'The location is private and beautiful and the villa comfortable. We had many dinners prepared on the barbeque, spending hours on the beautiful terrace, sometimes with our first hours of sleep under the sky full of stars. We will be promoting the villa to our friends.' (Sept 2009)
