|Minimum Stay||4 - 6 nights|
VILLA: A high quality villa with pool and fabulous views over the Bay of Vis and out to the Adriatic. The villa is BRAND NEW and has exquisite furnishings and fittings, so you can experience a holiday of five-star standard.
Main villa has 3 big bedrooms plus private pool and garden terraces and is on several levels. The villa can be booked as 3 or 4 bedrooms. Please see separate listing for 4 bed villa. Off-peak we offer a discount for a 2-bed booking.
If the villa is booked as 3-bed, without the apartment, there may be other guests in the apartment at the same time, but this does not affect privacy in the main villa in any way. Apartment guests do not have any access to the pool or to the villa's terraces as they are on a different level with a different aspect and the gate is locked. The villa’s top terrace has the pool, sunbeds, and evening drinks area. The mid terrace has a huge stone table for shady meals. Lower apartment terrace is available if whole property (4-bed) is booked
This fabulous property is a beautiful old stone building, in the Venetian style, and consists of a main villa with pool (sleeps 4-6) and a pretty apartment with garden terrace but no pool (sleeps 2-4). Together they make a wonderful 4-bedroomed villa with pool (sleeps 8-10). It was renovated in 2015 to an extremely high standard of style and comfort.
If you just want to book the apartment, or just want to book the villa (with 3 bedrooms), please be clear which unit you are looking at. Also, the pictures are clearly marked either "villa" or "apartment" so that you can be absolutely sure what you will get!
The beautiful old stone property has been stylishly renovated by its English owners to retain as much of the Venetian character as possible, while providing some of the most luxurious and comfortable accommodation available in the whole of Croatia. When the 3-bed villa is booked separately from the apartment, the villa guests are completely private from apartment guests, and vice-versa, as the property has been very cleverly designed for this purpose.
It is located in a quiet village just a few steps above a pretty, bustling quayside with its shops and restaurants, on the charming island of Vis. The great advantage of this location is that you don't need a car the whole time. Your evenings can be much more relaxing as you stroll around the bay deciding on your restaurant for the evening.
The property occupies the prime position on the bay, so it has wonderful views over the bay of Vis which is a picture postcard setting. There is a beautiful monastery on a promontory at the far side, a tiny island in the middle of the bay, and of course the turquoise Adriatic sea. You can watch the yachts and fishing boats come and go, and enjoy the evening sun as it sets across the bay. Vis is blessed with some stunning sunsets.
The island of Vis would suit people who want a completely different holiday, dislike commercialisation, and enjoy really good food and wine. They may also have an interest in history (lots of naval history), sailing, diving (Greek, Roman and 16c/17c/18c wrecks), vineyards, ecology (said to be the only totally organic island in the world) and incredible ice-cream.
The island is one of the few genuinely unspoilt islands in the Mediterranean - no high-rise hotels or villa parks here - yet it has a sophisticated Dalmatian culture and excellent food.
There are three main villages on the island - Vis 'Town' and Kut are on either side a a fabulous C-shaped bay on the north-eastern coast, while Komiza, a tiny fishing village is on the far west side of the island. The mountainous interior is scenic, well worth visiting. There are great beaches near to all the 3 main villages, and a few smaller ones down the east and south coast of the island, near to Stoncica, Milna and Rukavac. There are both pebble and sand beaches on Vis.
Please be aware that Vis is a hilly island and both Vis Town, Kut and Komiza have several sets of stone steps, usually on the lanes leading down to the quayside or towards the beaches. This holiday is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
We are a semi-retired couple, who found the island of Vis by accident...and realised it was one of the truly magical places in the world! We fell in love with the island and set about buying a ruin and then commissioning a local builder to renovate it. No idea how we managed it, but we did, and now the house is a delight.
Jan Stewart purchased this villa in 2004
We didn't intend to buy a house, but like many holidaymakers we amused ourselves by asking a local agent to show us what was for sale, and as we walked up the steps of this house we saw the view and we knew we had to move heaven and earth to make it ours.
The view - it's glorious!
This is not our first time in Croatia but it is our first in Vis. We were not disappointed! The villa was beautiful perfectly equipped all that you could possibly need. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with own hairdryer. Kitchen really well equipped all appliances that you possibly need. The villa also supplied pool and beach towels also mats and cooler bags for the beach. So thoughtful!
The location is perfect the only placed we have stayed where you really don't need or miss a car. Restaurants, shops, bakery all just a short walk. There is a beach just a 15/20 min walk away also.
Vis is beautiful, cobbled streets beautiful 14 century buildings and churches. There are many different restaurants to choose from all reasonably priced with local food and wine.
Jan was extremely helpful with ferries and travel arrangements we were met and taken to the villa with help on booking ferries.
Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful villa and to experience Vis. We will definitely return again.
All practical matters before and during our holiday in Vis were smoothly handled by the host and owner of the property. It was our first experience of HomeAway and it will not be the last.
The house is beautiful, well managed and highly functional with separate shiny new bathrooms for each bedroom. We felt at home right away. Having access to a pool was just amazing. The location is perfect with a wonderful view over the bay and the town of Vis. We had many nice meals in different restaurants in Vis, especially good quality fish and seafood. It was our first visit in Vis but definitely not the last. We already look forward to the next one. We can highly recommend this property.
We were bowled over by this house. It's location is superb with great views from all aspects. The house has very recently been renovated extremely well. It is light, spacious and beautifully finished. We particularly liked the bedroom arrangements which meant that each of the three coupled had a spacious self-contained area to themselves. We will definitely be back.
Great house, impressive design and finished to the highest of standards. Great views of the 'bay' of Vis town to enjoy an evening cocktail. Close to some very good restaruants as well. A lovely home from home.
Previous reviews say it all but maybe do not convey what a truly special place this is in terms of location, views, furnishings, facilities, levels of comfort, luxury and service. In this magical place, stress disappears and time does not seem to matter. What a tonic! I am not sure 5 stars is enough! We will be back.
This was a real treat. A beautifully renovated stone house over three levels with lots of space to relax inside and out plus the added (and unusual for Vis) bonus of a pool. The position is wonderful with views over the bay and Vis town from all the bedrooms as well as the patios and lounge. We even had a view out to sea whilst showering! A good selection of restaurants and bars to wander to in the evening and a bakery close by for breakfast breads and croissants. Lovely for walking either along to the headland where there is a good little swimming beach or in the other direction round the bay into Vis town and harbour where there are many more restaurants and some nice little shops.
The villa is spotless and extremely well appointed with good quality furniture and kitchenware. All the bedrooms were en suite, very spacious with beautiful comfy beds.
I can thoroughly recommend this villa and would go back at the drop of a hat.
Perfectly located, this wonderful villa and pretty apartment are above the lively waterfront in Kut, a charming village of Venetian-built houses which rises uphill from the quayside. Kut has a good selection of shops and restaurants, and is just 20 minutes' walk around the bay from the larger Vis Town.
From all the main villa and apartment windows and terraces there are wonderful views of the sea and the stunning bay of Vis. All the terraces, including the apartment terrace, are great places to relax in the evening and to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets for which Vis is famous. The Adriatic sea is just a very short walk down some stone village steps and the beach is at the end of a lane which is just below the property. Apart from the wonderful Venetian architecture, the other big advantage to being in Kut is that you're just a few minute's walk away from all the good restaurants (most are in Kut) so no scary night-time drives around the hair-pin bends to get back to an isolated villa in a less populated area. And no need to get in a car and drive miles for your bread in the morning. There are two bakeries, two greengrocer's and small grocery store just a few minutes' walk away, down the village steps, while a fish market and a local fruit/veg market are in Vis Town which is a 20 minute walk away along the picturesque lane which winds around the bay.
