We've just come back from a wonderful holiday on Kolocep Island. The island chain is probably the most unspoilt place we have been to - beautiful, peaceful and very relaxing. We found enough to do for the week we were there, walking, swimming and visiting Dubrovnik Old City as well as the other islands and we would definitely return.
Our hosts were warm and welcoming, providing gorgeous cake from a family celebration. Also, my partner left his phone in the taxi. Ante's daughter arranged to pick it up and she brought the phone to the island the following day.
The apartment is in the loft space at the top of the house and was spotlessly clean. There is a super king-size bed which is great but bear in mind the limited headroom which renders much of the space in the apartment unusable. We are not tall people and still banged our heads several times.
We were able to use the large terraced area downstairs but this is shared with the two other apartments. Personally, I would make an opening in the end wall of the living room providing a private west facing balcony and this would bring a lot more light into the property. There would then be a means of escape in the event of a fire - there are currently only two small windows in the apartment overlooking the sheer drop to the water and rocks.
The kitchen could be relocated too, at present there are no sockets and we had to boil the kettle on the floor in the living room. Because eating out is a little bit limited, we would have liked to have had some more facilities and equipment to prepare food ourselves.
Being ourselves in the rental business in the south of France, we know we can be picky and have high expectations sometimes. And what a surprise to see that everything was perfect from the first to the last minute during this wonderful stay on Kolocep/Kalamota island. The location is absolutely stunning with beautiful views from the bedrooms/apartments. Very peaceful and ideal for a relaxing holiday.The island is so charming and peaceful, far from the touristy crowd of Dubrovnik but still very easy to reach by boat when you want to do sightseeing or more action. The house itself is beautiful, full of history with old stones walls, renovated with taste to add comfort and privacy, nice gardens. I should not speak so highly of this rental as I would like to keep it the way it is now, a small hidden gem but they do truly deserve it. A special mention to the very delicate owners, Ante, Nina and all the Svilokos's family working in harmony together. They made us feel truly welcome and at home right away. They were very attentive, helpful and so kind to us throughout our stay. It was very hard to leave and hope to be back soon. Thanks again for everything. Catherine and René from France
On arriving on the island of Kolocep we were blown away by how beautiful and unspoilt the island is. Mena met us off the ferry and Ante took our bags by boat to the house. We stayed in the romantic apartment; it had all that you could need and lovely and cool, with fantastic views across the bay.
Ante and his family made us feel most welcome and were always on hand without being intrusive. My husband and son both enjoy fishing, Ante took them fishing on his boat and put down wire traps in the sea, which we took great pleasure snorkelling out to check on.
We had a great fish supper with what they caught. Our holiday was wonderful and the Svilokos family are lovely, caring people. We were there for 2 and a half weeks and it started to feel like home.
It really is a beautiful place made even better with marvellous hosts. We were so sad to leave and hope we will be back soon. Thank you Svilokos family!!
We are a family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and stayed here in August 2014. This was a delightful place to stay whilst visiting Dubrovnik. (There are 4 ferries a day and the journey is just 30 mins from Dubrovnik so check out the times and plan your travels). It was peaceful and idyllic with a few houses around the bay and no cars. We had intended to make several visits to Dubrovnik but couldn't tear ourselves away from the lovely island of kolocep. We swam for hours, hired canoes to canoe around the Island (highly recommended), walked, enjoyed the views from the terrace... We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. The owners are thoughtful and helpful; the apartment is exactly as described. Book early!
We have just spent 10 days at Villa Svilokos and can honestly say that everything from start to finish was just perfect! We had a really easy transfer from the airport using the Atlas shuttle bus to the port followed by ferry to Kolocep. We were met as promised by the lovely Nina who escorted us on the short walk to the apartment pointing out items of interest along the way. On arrival and after we had caught our breath from looking out of the windows at the spectacular views we noted that everything was exactly as described and spotlessly clean. We were made extremely welcome by Nina and the Svilokos family, nothing was too much trouble and Nina's home baking was a wonderful treat! Visiting Dubrovnik and the neighbouring islands is recommended and easily done. If you need to relax and return home happy and refreshed then this is the place for you.
Kolocep has two small villages Donje Celo and Gornje Celo. Old Croatian chapels and churches are scattered everywhere and the ruins of medieval forts stand on every important stronghold of the island.
Already the first encounter with the island of Kolocep cannot leave you unmoved. You will be intoxicated with the still calm, the scent of the Mediterranean plants and the intensity of the colours of the Adriatic. The beaches are sandy and pebble located in Donje Celo Bay.
Also in the port you will find cafés, restaurants as well as the one main shop that is well equipped with all necessary ingredients. As you go further along the Riviera which stretches from the port around the bay to the Villa Ruža there are lounge bar and luxury restaurant, which is the nearest place to our apartments.
Feel the morning sun from the early start with a guided sea kayaking tour of Kolocep Island or one of the other Elafiti Islands.
