We purchased the property as a renovation project and worked on it over twelve months turning it into a lovely villa. Previously the villa had only a downstairs and we put in stairs and made the loft area, which had been used for smoking meat into bedrooms. If you look hard you can still see the darkened beams from the smoking. We visit the property as often as we can throughout the year in between guest bookings. We always enjoy the local people and enjoy the company of our Croatian friends. As we work hard in between visits a rest is always welcome.Stacey is a carpenter so often it is a working holiday, tidying up the villa or working on a new project.
Well equipped for small and large groups. Plenty of space for children to play and adults to relax.
