Bedrooms 2
Space 1,076 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedroom,, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 2 + 2

This historic hilltop property has been beautifully and tastefully renovated to offer guests a secluded and comfortable retreat, complete with panoramic views of the Dalmatian coast. Set amongst a private estate near the delightful fishing village of Vinisce, the property is ideally suited to a couple, small family or group of friends seeking a relaxing location with spectacular views.

The stone house has been renovated in traditional style and is accessed via a large terrace providing outdoor dining and relaxation areas with incredible views of the coast. To the property is connected a private, lovely pool area with panoramic view.

The main building consists of a large open plan living space. The main double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and is separated from the living area via a curtain. A mezzanine level overlooking the living area provides space for the second double bed.

The kitchen is in a separate building, near to the outdoor dining area.

Location info: The estate invites easy access to the beautiful green hills and secluded coves that have led to the area becoming popular with hikers and kayakers.

Famous for its pretty beaches and crystal clear waters, the Trogir Riviera is also ideal for fishing and scuba diving. To make the most of a holiday to Vinisce, car hire is recommended.

Other nearby places of interest include Split (35 minutes by car), the Krka waterfalls (45 minutes drive) and of course the many islands of the Dalmatian coast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello, Karin and Dominik!

We spent one of our greatest holidays there in Vinisce! We really enjoyed to be there. The house is so attractive and the view is so breathtaking! It was also nice to have a cat of our own and we could have many laughs and happy moments because of her. You have great websites so we can show the holidayphotos to our friends that way.

Tell our thanks also to Marino and Maria- they did their best too!

With kind regards

Ruhe und Entspannung pur in toller Umgebung und Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften für eine Woche die Ruhe und Stille und die tolle Landschaft, die Aussicht und das Ambiente des Cottages genießen.

Es war wirklich wunderbar!

Alles hat prima geklappt: von der Anreise über die Betreuung durch den Housekeeper, bis zur Abreise.

Wir können diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen. :-)

Beautiful, Quiet and Peaceful - We absolutely loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Dominik and Karin have created a stunning home. Beautifully built and restored, thoughtfully equipped with all you could require, with so many lovely places to sit and enjoy the view it was hard to choose! Most of the time the only sounds we heard were the buzz of insects and songs of the birds. It was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. The location was a convenient starting point for a number of day trips we took by car, but we looked forward to returning to the house each afternoon. We also did two walks from the house in the nearby hills and roads which we enjoyed very much. Marino the housekeeper was very thoughtful and helpful, bringing us fresh bread each morning and answering any travel questions we might have.

Highly recommend sitting by the pool after dark to watch the bats catch insects over the pool and stare at the many stars. We really can't say enough about how much we loved our stay, it was a very special experience.

Wonderful views with home from home touches

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful holiday and for making our stay so comfortable. We visited with our two children and all of us thought the house and pool was amazing.The views from the house were spectacular, the house was spotlessly clean and there were so many little touches to make the stay special - flowers, toiletries, coffee for nespresso machine and bread delivered daily to name just a few.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone!

Thanks for a memorable holiday.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is our idea of the perfect relaxing vacation. The cottage is presented and cared for better than most 5star resorts. We have been before and will be back again!!

The day bed by the pool, is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view. The front terrace, is perfect to enjoy a romantic dinner and watch the world go by. And breakfast is best enjoyed at the small table outside the kitchen.


You are literally alone on the hilltop. If you are looking for a quite, relaxing spot to unwind - then the cottage is wonderful. You may encounter the odd passer by, bike riding on the path below - but 90% of the time you will be alone. The walk down to the village is a steep one ... that takes a good 15-20 minutes. This road is not for regular cars.


Wonderful, perfect, amazing. The cottage has been finished and appointed very well. Certainly not a 'normal' holiday rental. Everything about the cottage and its presentation has been done with love and with the best for guests in mind. Inside the cottage it can be a little dark - but in the heat of summer, this style is essential to keeping the temperature inside down. We love the separate kitchen building - with the wonderful ole' fashioned open fire/grill.

Whilst there is the loft upstairs with a double bed - I would really recommend the cottage as a romantic location for couples. It is your own private paradise.


We love this place - this is our escape. But it may not be for everyone, it is a little isolated - so if you are after a short walk to restaurants, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for something amazing, a place to relax, recharge your batteries and watch the world pass by then this is for you. When you feel like joining the civilization - you can get in the car and visit Split or the beautiful Primosten.

The local supermarket has limited supplies, so plan to stop in one of the larger cities on the way to stock up on supplies.

Simply wonderful. Dominik & Karin are fabulous - we will be back to stay again and also will stay in Villa Amore in May. There are few owners with properties that take the care in the little finishing touches and quality that they do.

ruhiger, freier Erholungsurlaub für Paar

  • 5 of 5

Toll abgelegenes Ferienhaus, weg vom Tourismus. Lage auf dem Berg erlaubt 24 h FKK. Man hat viel Zeit zu zweit. Toller Pool, der nicht eingesehen werden kann. Bad mit 2 Waschbecken, Dusche, WM reicht aus. Küche zwar sehr einfach, trotzdem ist alles da, was man braucht. Tolle Sitzgelegenheiten auf der großzügigen Terrasse. Von Terrasse und Pool aus geiler Blick auf Meer. Houskeeper immer erreichbar, kümmert sich um Pool und Probleme. Mietauto unbedingt zu empfehlen, um einzukaufen und die schönen Lokale anfahren zu können. Meer zu Fuß innerhalb 30 min erreichbar, jedoch Zugang zum Wasser aufgrund spitzer Felsen fast unmöglich.

K. und S.

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt wunderschön in einem alten Olivenhain und hat eine tollen Meerblick.

Im Haus und der Küche ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen ruhigen Urlaub, etwas abseits vom überlaufenen Massentourismus benötigt.

Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt und viele schöne Stunden am traumhaften Pool verbracht.

Vinisce is a small quiet fishing town located in a beautiful bay of clear sea and untouched nature, only 12 km from Trogir.

In the surroundings there are several beautiful bays well known for their attractive pebble and sand beaches – Voluja, Ri'evo Vrelo, Stari Trogir, Si'enica. Viniš'e has several markets, restaurants, cafe bars, and a small marine for yachtsmen.

The place has a small ACI marine, restaurants and cafés, and a short drive can get you to the city of Split, the cultural center of Dalmatia. Viniš?e is a place intended first of all for lovers of quiet family vacations in private rooms, apartments, and houses and the destination is suitable for those who wish to have their privacy.

Concerning activities, along with swimming and sunbathing, we can recommend surfing, sport and underwater fishing, and boat excursions. For those who love entertainment and night life, we recommend visiting nearby Trogir, Šibenik, Rogoznica, and Split.
