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

The villa was perfect, beautiful and comfortable 2013

It is a 5 star house; congratulations on the style and decoration 2012

'We had a lovely time in your villa. The view is just enchanting. Wonderful weather. Thanks again for everything, this has been one of the best houses we have stayed in and certainly the most helpful owner!' (August 2008)

'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)

Beautiful villa, thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very enjoyable week in Philomena. It is as beautiful as the pictures suggest, really spacious (we were two families with 5 children) and the views are stunning. Probably the nicest feature about the stay was the very thoughtful arrangement of details in the house, from useful explanations and tips to a number of small extras provided - table candles, books, games, mosquito repellents (alas, much needed), basic cooking ingredients...including a half bottle of brandy :).

Excellent House - Comfortable but with character

  • 5 of 5
Villa Philomena is a big old house but completely renovated within the last 10 years or so, so everything inside is modern, clean & comfortable.

We were 2 families (9 people in total) and there was plenty of space for everyone. Big kitchen inside and terrace outside (with Barbecue) both with big tables, which was great for breakfast and evening meals for the both families together. There is also a large lounge area inside and second terrace in the sun so plenty of space for people to relax in their own space.

The villa is away from the main village up a narrow concrete track and very quiet with views over the sea and the island of Korcula. It is just a few minutes walk down to the sea front, although it is a slower walk back since it is quite steep uphill.

The owner provided excellent information (the best we have ever had) on Croatia, the local area and especially local restaurants, of which there are many. This was really helpful and very much appreciated. Although there is no air conditioning in the bedrooms we didn't find it too bad and didn't even bother using the air conditioning in the main part of the house.

Loviste is certainly worth a visit and was probably our favourite beach, with a lovely bay and a good restaurant, Gradina, on the sea front. Croatia feels very safe in many ways and your are made to feel welcome, in contrast to many European destinations. My wife is quite paranoid about theft and won't normally leave a bag unattended on the beach for more than a few minutes, but had no problems with leaving our towels, snorkels etc on the beach whilst we went off for lunch in the restaurant for a couple of hours!

We also did some walking in the hills behind the Villa, which was also really good, excellent paths and stunning views, but you need to have decent shoes and plenty of water.

We also took a high speed Rib (speedboat) to Miljet for a day, which whilst a little pricey at 260 kuna per person was certainly worth while.

All in all I would certainly recommend Croatia and if you want a decent sized place this is an excellent choice

Highly recommended

Beautiful house - stunning view

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Villa Philomena. The house is beautifully reconstructed with a stunning view and a relaxing terrace. It is really well equipped with everything to make for an enjoyable holiday. We had a great barbeque on the outside grill and spent enjoyable evenings looking at the stars... During the day we explored the peninsula, finding lovely and secluded beaches and impressive landscapes.

Highly recommendable!

It's an 8-10 min walk downhill to the sea and swimming areas. The nearest beach is a 10-15 min walk or 5 min drive - that's a popular swimming/kite surfing/windsurfing beach with nice relaxed restaurant and beach bar. There are other little beaches all along the waterfront.

The centre of Viganj village is a 10 min walk from Villa Philomena. Orebic town is a 15 min drive. Korcula Island is a 15 min ferry ride from Viganj, Orebic or Kuciste (Kuciste is a village that's a 5 min drive from Villa Philomena). Korcula Island has a delightful medieval Venetian town. Loviste village in a quiet bay is a beautiful 15 min drive over Mt. Illijah from Viganj.

There are many vineyards along the Peninsula and the area also offers sailing, mountain walking/climbing/biking, windsurfing and fishing. The protected waters are very popular for sailing and the 3-4 h walk to the top of Mt. Illijah (961m) provides wonderful views across the Peninsula and Korcula Island.

Other Activities: Kitesurfing
