We’ll equipped comfortable villa in a rural peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lovor is a traditional style villa fitted out in a home from home style. Every kitchen appliance, utensil, bathroom, umberella, slippers, beach towels, books, BBQ, cushions etc etc is supplied. Two of the bedrooms are accessed independently with their own front door and staircase. It is possible to go through the main villa back door to get to the staircase.

The villa is very well maintained. The gardens are planted with a variety of pretty plants. The garden has a good assortment of outdoor seating. The villa itself was very clean.

We had a lovely holiday visiting all the recommended places. The Bacina lakes are a real pleasure and we all enjoyed kayaking around the lake. The lakes are also a good place for an early morning jogs and afternoon swim. Actually they are beautiful.

Danijel and his parents are superb hosts. They were very responsive and attentive.

It was comforting to know that if a problem had occurred they would be at the villa immediately to sort it out.

Our family had a lovely holiday in this accommodation and would highly recommend it. We were a family of 6 adults. I would say the villa isn’t suitable for a family with younger children. There are a lot of stairs with open bits. The pool has no shallow paddling area.

It is necessary to have a car in this villa. The nearest restaurant is a short drive away but on a main road. ( this restaurant is very very good and not too expensive). We ate out in Gradac twice and the next village along another night. The villages on the coast are lively with a good choice of restaurant. The villages are traditional and unspoilt.

Thank you Danijel and your parents. We had a great holiday

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Villa Lovor! Spent a great week there relaxing with the family in June of 2018. The house is lovely and equipped with everything you need to do your own cooking. The grounds surrounding the house are full of trees that provide plenty of shade from the hot sun, but still allow for the pool area to get nice a warm. The bedrooms are large and everything is very clean. Beaches are a 10 minute drive from the house and there are plenty of restaurants/grocery stores nearby. The internet is fast and reliable. Daniel and his family and lovely people and very responsive if you have a question. We'll be back!

A very nice property

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, well furnished inside and out, with good sized rooms and excellent outdoor areas, which included a pool and a barbecue house. In a good location to explore the area between Split and Dubrovnik, and close to ferries to the islands, it served as a fine introduction to Croatia as none of our party had been before. The owners were also very helpful and constantly in contact to make sure things were OK, and their excellent English made up for our complete lack of Serbo-Croat! An easy and relaxing holiday, with plenty to do and a comfortable and peaceful house to stay in.

This is a delightful villa. Plenty of space for our family , 6 adults + baby.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Villa Lovor. Danijel and his mother were there to meet us when we arrived and showed us around. The villa was plenty spacious for our needs with everything included in the house for a home from home stay, including a cot and high chair for the baby. Very quiet rural setting. Lovely pool and gardens.

A car is a must, and we did a lot of driving in a week up and down the beautiful Croatian coastline to the main areas such as , Dubrovnik (where we flew in to) Bosnia, the Kravice falls and Mostar, Hvar, Korcula, Ston, and Krka falls north of split. Also just behind the villa are the beautiful Bacina lakes. There are also many little towns with great restaurants not too far up the road, we mainly ate in Gradac but the best most delicious meal was at a restaurant Galeb just up the road. Excellent roads mean driving is not a problem.

A very enjoyable stay.

What a fantastic villa. Beautiful inside and out with a gorgeous pool and gardens. Just the best!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be better! Villa Lovor is located close to Bacina Lakes, down a gravel road in a small setting of a few houses. Danijel and his parents couldn't have given us a warmer welcome and were fantastic in providing us with information, fresh grapes, homemade cake. The loveliest people ever :-)The villa has everything you could possibly need, beautiful rooms, aircon, great kitchen, towels galore. We felt so relaxed. We stayed with another family of 4 and the layout of the villa worked really well. The pool and gardens are so beautiful and the children loved exploring the rocky surrounds. The villa is also perfectly located for local beaches at Gradac, fab restaurants as well as trips to Bacina Lakes, Kravica Falls and Mostar. All incredible. We are now off to Korcula and catching the ferry from nearby Ploce. Thank you so much for a truly amazing week. :-)

Beautiful villa, great location and lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Villa Lovor in August 2017. The villa is beautiful and more than lives up to the photos on this site, the pool is perfect and its literally a few minutes drive from the Bacina Lakes which are stunning. The location is great for Makarska Riviera and also only an hours drive to Mostar in Bosnia which is well worth a visit. Its incredibly quiet and relaxed here but you can still drive to a supermarket or restaurant in 10 mins.

We stayed here with my four children aged from 6-21 and they all loved the pool, wildlife including seeing frogs and tortoises, the basketball and volleyball court and looking at the stars at night. Its difficult to find any negatives with this villa - take bug spray though.

Danijel and mum Daniella could not have been more helpful without being intrusive. They greeted us on arrival, the villa is well stocked with with ample items such as beach towels, cleaning products, books, shower gel, information on the local area etc. Air Con is good and was well needed as temperature was over 40 degrees. Midweek delivered cakes and also came to say goodbye. Thanks so much for all your help - I'm sure we will return to this villa in the future! Clare & Family x
