Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 10 plus access to another villa that sleeps 8

Villa Vista is a fantastic location for larger group holiday - whether that is two families, a multi-generational celebration or group of friends looking to reunite.

Over our 11 years of holiday letting we have hosted weddings, significant birthdays, university reconnections, international family reunions as well as plenty of one family and smaller groups escapes. Regardless of the make-up, all have been left with fond lifelong memories based on the brilliant experience the Villa delivers and the wonderful place that is the village of Viganj.

The Villa is also a superb example of how to restore a magnificent 350-year-old stone house to its original grandeur together with all mod cons, high comfort level and a wonderful large pool in an outstanding setting.

The Villa's large inside and outside spaces mean there is a ton of room for the whole team to be together and equally, the opportunity to find somewhere quiet for a snooze or read.

There are a number of good bistros nearby but if you enjoy shopping for local produce and cooking up a storm, the Villa’s kitchen is set up for you. A large 120 cm oven and 5 gas ring hob is complimented by an amazing stone open BBQ with all the equipment you need to prepare a fantastic meal which can be shared on the terrace taking in the breath-taking views over the Adriatic in the shade on an invariably warm day, or under the stars at night.

In summary, Villa Vista the perfect tonic for the stresses of modern life.

Sitting above the village of Viganj at the tip of the Peljesac Peninsular, the amazing views from the large terrace and large swimming pool take in the length of the island of Korcula and its vineyards, and the beauty of the Medieval Citadel of Korcula Town across the sparkling crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic – and this with the sea just 250 meters from the terrace steps.

We also have access to a second villa that sleeps 8 acting as an ideal overflow for larger events.

About Jane Grant

A New Zealander living in Woking in the UK for the past 25(!) years, living with my husband Craig, daughter Ella, dog Monty and our chickens..

We fell in love with Croatia on our first trip in 2003 which set us off hunting for our perfect holiday home. We found Villa Vista the next year and set about putting it back to its former self. By all accounts, including the locals, we did a pretty good job of it.

We knew there were a number of old stone houses in the area but bought and renovated this one because of history and commanding position.

We make an active contribution to village life and have made many goods friends in Viganj, our home away from home.

Why Jane Grant chose Viganj

Why this property?

Our guests love being here! Villa Vista has the best of both worlds in Viganj.

It is a stones throw from the Village - it's shops, bars, restaurants, sea etc., and yet has the peace, calm and unbelievable views due to its enviable position just above the village. It has been described by a recent stayer as being in your own private resort.

It is tough to beat waking up and being able to see up to 10 Adriatic islands over you morning coffee or tea - or lunch and dinner over a chilled glass of lovely local wine.

Largest private swimming pool in the area.

Private, secluded position.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful last minute family holiday with our four children staying at Villa Vista- this was our first visit to Croatia and it lived up to all our expectations of a stunning destination. The sea views from the villa were really breathtaking and the villa itself was spacious, comfortable and attractively done. We immediately felt at home. Our children loved having a pool all to themselves, being able to walk down to the sea and sitting in the hammocks. We went in the quiet low season and really enjoyed the tranquility. We relaxed at the villa but also found it was a good spot for exploring the gorgeous coast. The owners offer lots of helpful information about the area. Highly recommended.

Beautiful property with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Jane’s villa is quite simply fantastic. The rooms are stylish, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is much bigger than it appears in the photos and is so well equipped one could cater for an army! The pool is amazing and but what is unquestionably the outstanding feature of the property is the terrace with the most fabulous views over the coast and the island of Korcula. Jane was so kind and helpful, offering us advice and recommendations before and during our stay. I would say that you definitely need a car since, whilst the village is not too far away, it is a very steep climb to the villa. I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Jane’s villa.

Wow - stunning views, Villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Villa Vista and as with our previous holidays there we had a superb family holiday.

The Villa is located on the hillside above Viganj with incredible views of Korcula.

With the pool, the veranda and all the mod cons in the Villa we had many lazy days relaxing and unwinding, swinging in the hammocks or swimming in the pool.

The Villa is stunning and such a perfect place for a proper break to escape, relax and recharge.

This year we chartered a yacht from Split and sailed down to the Peljesac. The owners were v helpful in helping us find a charter and in the logistics for our transfer to the Villa in Viganj.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you returned for your third visit to the Villa and that both our yacht charter company recommendation and, of course, the stay at the Villa worked out as you remembered and the way you all wanted it to. Having the perfect place to stay is one part of a perfect holiday. We are real believers in making sure your opportunity to escape, relax and recharge is delivered. We are always very happy to help out in any way we can as with logistics to the villa, provisioning shopping, child minding service alongside the activity, wine and restaurant recommendations in the notes provided. It was a pleasure to meet you all and hope to have you stay again sometime! Many thanks Jane

We (5 old friends) had a wonderful week. House, garden and pool were all lovely.

  • 5 of 5

Pool lovely and secluded. Villa very well equipped.

A short walk to the small village of Viganj, by the water's edge. Steep climb back!

2 good bar / restaurants for simple evening meals. People friendly.

Altogether a great time.

Thanks, Jane, for always being at the end of the phone for texts etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post this review Sarah. I am delighted you had such a wonderful time at the Villa and that all was as you wanted and needed it to be there. Really pleased you all enjoyed your time in the village too. There have been a couple of new bars open in Viganj this year which I am really looking forward to trying out taking the number of restaurants and bars local to the Villa to the to 10 so plenty to different venues to enjoy! We hope to welcome you bar again soon. Jane

Magic

  • 5 of 5

This is actually the third time we have stayed in this perfect gem. It's hard to describe the pure magic of this place. It is stunningly beautiful, quiet, well stocked, easy to relax. Yet just a short jaunt down the road, either by foot or by car is the awesome action of a seaside village with lovely bars/restaurants, kiting, shopping, biking, boating, tennis etc. The people are amazing, some of the nicest in the world. The winerys are an easy day trip, as is Korcula, another fabulous must see. Then back to the oasis of this beautiful property. We did look at changing our location to be in the village and decided against it because we truly enjoyed the feeling each day of 'getting away' from it all. I highly recommend this place to any group that is looking to relax and have fun, it offers the perfect balance. I will be going back again and again.

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy, It is always lovely to have to you back to the villa and thank you for writing this wonderful review. We really do work hard to make sure the villa holds its standards for every guest, every year and it seems this hard work has paid off for you and family. Cant agree more with the "getting away" from it all with your sentiments reflected in those of other guests reviews too. Very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Jane

wonderful villa and plenty to do

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful and comfort villa with fabulous views of the sea and the beautiful island of Korcula . So much to do on the doorstep for all ages, from cycling, walking, wine tasting on the land and boating, wind and kite surfing in the crystal clear sea. Safe local village for youngsters to walk and hang out in. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, Thank you for taking the time to do this review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your time at the Villa. It is indeed a wonderful place and as you say, so much to do right on the doorstep yet enough away from the bustle of the village to be able to able to relax in your own private resort too. Best regards Jane

Delightful for a gathering of friends to celebrate a special occasion.

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular views overlooking the water and Korcula. House is charming and well-maintained and equipped for large gatherings. It was the perfect place for my husband to celebrate his fantasy 60th birthday with good friends. Even though we weren't windsurfers, it was fun to watch them enjoying their idea of paradise. Jane (owner) is attentive and suggested many local spots for eating and activities. House is maintained by a friendly band of locals who were only too willing to help us with inane questions and minor issues. Can't wait to celebrate my 60th!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write this review Sheila. I know this was a big event for you all, months maybe even a year in the planning with friends and family travelling from the US and all points north and south. I am delighted you had such a wonderful time and that the villa and my local team lived up to my promise of a special location for a special occasion. Safe onward travels and roll on your 60th! Best regards Jane

A local ferry runs to Korcula from a jetty a short walk from the Villa where further ferries can be caught to the island national park of Miljet and the unmissable city of Dubrovnik.

Viganj and its neighbouring villages of Ponte, Kuciste and Loviciste offer a range of restaurants and bars that provide a welcome break from the heat of day and a place of real beauty for evening drinks and dinner. All serve a range of local produce and fish caught on the day, together with excellent local wine.

Orebic, 4 kms away, is the main town for shopping, markets, banks etc.

Viganj has a number of windsurfing and kite boarding schools and plays host to an international windsurf and kite board competition each August. Other sporting activities include water skiing and wake boarding, scuba diving, sailing – small and blue water yachts, Para sending, tennis, hiking and mountain biking.

Other Activities: Kite Boarding, Wine Trails
