Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Viganj - Footprints Villa
5 Bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, pool, wifi, air-con. Amazing Views.
Footprints Villa is a large (5 bedroom), fully renovated 19th century detached stone residence, located directly on the sea front in the little mainland village of Viganj - a peaceful oceanside setting with views over the sea to the ancient mini city of Korcula.
The resorted stone villa has its own large private pool ( it's an ideal 8.3m x 5.6m in size) and wonderful views out to sea, with beaches just 10 metres away! Located in this quiet beach front village that over looks the crystal clear Adriatic, Footprints Villa offers spacious living with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and sleeps 10 (up to 12 if infants in cots). It has 2 large reception rooms, atrium, a huge kitchen with Bosch fittings, beverage fridge (for the local wines provided in your welcome pack!) dishwasher, sit up bar, triple sinks, granite work surfaces etc etc...leading to stunning decks, front and rear, to enjoy the access to the ocean & the huge sea front south-west patios, and around its large private pool to the rear of the home.
To secure a booking, my deposit requirement is 50% and the balance would not be due until just 8 weeks before your holiday.
Better still, its sea front, so no need for a car, as easy walking to this lovely little fishing village's bars and small restaurants, serving local fresh foods, especially sea food. The well stocked shop is just 150 meters away. Beaches are seconds by foot too. The villa has a jetty in front.
Footprints Villa was restored over a 4 year project from a ruin by us (English owners), and features exposed original stone features which blend beautifully with stylish, contemporary finishings, polished wooden and tiled floors, hi-end sanitary wear, designer kitchen and quality outdoor furnishings. Large stone BBQ.
The original features have been carefully retained, yet it offers modern elegance in undoubtedly the most amazing location. Other features include flat screen TV, thick, fluffy towels & robes, 600 thread Egyptian bedding, The White Company toiletries, pool towels, free wireless internet.
A perfect private, spacious luxurious family villa.
Footprints Villa, in Viganj, is located on the Adriatic mainland, so no need to catch (or worry about catching!) ferries to the islands. From experience, if a ferry is missed, especially in higher season, the delay can be significant, stressful and rather hot in the summer sun!
The village of Viganj (pronounced ve-gan) sits on the azure clear Adriatic sea, and north from the city of Dubrovnik, and faces the 'mini Dubrovnik' of Korcula - easy to reach by the foot passenger only water taxi that leaves just 200m by foot from Footprints Villa. The village has a plentiful supply of excellent bars, restaurants, its very well stocked mini supermarket, at ATM....all of course within walking of the villa. The beaches are safe and again, all near the villa.
Viganj is famous for its windsurfing and kitesurfing scene, with plenty of opportunity to learn or improve your skills with the various companies that offer tuition - again, all within a short walk of the villa.
If you like to enjoy more sedate forms of relaxation, the region is equally famous for its vineyards with tours and tastings all available that we can arrange, as can boat hire, both for own use and captained.
No need for the car once once in residence, or long walks in the hot summer heat to 'close to the sea' accommodation in the area. Taxi's too are a cost effective wy to visit the near villages with more choices of places to eat and drink.
Full details of many things to do locally are provided in the villa.
I hope you come and enjoy sea front living at Footprints Villa!

''What a perfect place! We loved everything about the villa, the town, the sea and Korcula. So relaxing here, I wasn't sure if I still had a pulse!
Little Viganj village is really enchanting. We can't wait to come back!
Beautiful sunsets, Drinks on the terrace. Great local restaurants, church bells ringing. So quiet and peaceful.
Would definitely come back here, Fabulous home''

Hello! I bought Footprints villa as a roofless ruin back in 2008, but knew with some hard work, I could restore it to its former glory as the former Sea Captains house it once was. The position of course, being sea front, is unrivalled, and made me all the more enthused to create a great home. It took 3 more years to complete the project to what you can now see.
Why this property?
It's always been very rare indeed to find a large, historic sea front house with plenty of outside space, but after 4 years of visiting and searching Croatia, when this popped up, I grabbed it.
It took nearly 3 years to create Footprints as it is today, with over 40 return visits as the restoration progressed.
Sea front living on a holiday can't be beaten. Not just for direct access to the sea, amazing views, but also the convenience of being able to wander to all local facilities (no 'a short walk' or ''just a 5 minute drive for the shops and beach' with this villa!!).
We spend enough time behind the wheel of a car not to have to do the same on our holidays.....,there is no need for a car at Footprints...I can recommend transfers for you...as you are in the village, on the beach, everything is within walking distance (shops, bars, great restaurants).
Better still, my villa is on the mainland, so no waiting for hours and hours in the summer sun (after 3-4 hour flights and car journeys) queuing for a ferry to the outer islands such as Brac, Miljet, Hvar etc etc!
We supply wireless Internet of course and bath, hand AND pool/beach towels, plus also a large array of complimentary toiletries.
An extensive welcome pack is provided, with my compliments.
I have excellent stay who care for my guests when in residence, and as you can see from my many reviews, their service is welcome and appreciated.
