So close to the sea you can hear it! In the heart of Viganj, Villa Rosa offers so much. Set back from the sea you get privacy on the front and rear terraces but close enough to jump in the sea for a swim, Take the kayaks for a paddle or go for a sail.
In season there are 6 restaurants and 3 bars within a 5 minute walk, the village shop is a stone throw away, selling all the basics you should need for your stay as is the ferry which takes you to the beautiful island of Korcula. This family owned villa is the perfect family retreat, having the crystal clear Adriatic so close children and adults alike will have a unique and memorable holiday.
The House Boasts a rear walled garden, with a pool and dinning area covered from the sun which houses a large stone BBQ.
We had an absolutely great time at Villa Rosa. The house was perfect, and so much space inside and out. You have done a really good job on it. The terraces, pool, BBQ - all lovely. The outside space was much more spacious than the website photos suggest.
It was also great to have the kayaks and the pico, which were out on the water several times.
The weather was quite mixed with sunny spells and torrential rain and thunderstorms, but it really didn't matter. Someone said it was the coldest week for 160 years !!!!
Several family members were already talking of a return visit sometime
It was the perfect solution for our family celebration.
The house and outside areas are excellent and as described. Having access to the bikes and canoes made the holiday with everyone enjoying them daily. The village is very pretty and the locals friendly hoŵever when visiting in
October all bar one restaurant/bar was closed (orebic provided more that were open).
I'd definitely recommend both the area and the villa.
Our stay in Viganj was our first visit to Croatia and we can't wait to come back. What a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The Villa was great, the people were great and our vacation was a total success!
This is a lovely old, spacious, airy, well-equipped house and we loved the glorious views from our bedroom window. The owners have done a fantastic, thoughtful and sympathetic conversion, so its modern inside but still retains a great deal of character.
It was immactulately clean when we arrived with lovely fresh cotton bedding and towels. A very-well equipped kitchen was much appreciated - we were catering for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters. We did not use the barbeque. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms that had air conditioning were nice and cool in the evenings. With a large group, it was great to have 4 bath/shower rooms.
We were a group of mixed ages - ranging from 18 to 66! Villa Rosa was absolutely ideal as it catered for all our needs. The younger (and not so young) thoroughly enjoyed the use of the Pico sailing dinghy, the kayaks and bikes. The older, less-energetic ones could relax around the pool or in the sea in or out of the shade. Loads of space inside and outside.
The village is incredibly laid back and at one end there are centres for wind and kite sailing. We didn't participate but it would be a great base for anyone interested in this activity. The local shop (just 100 yards away) is brilliant and amazingly had quite a random range of goods, including a good choice for our vegans!!
We went twice to an interesting fish restaurant called 'Forte'. Otherwise there are some great places to eat very nearby with good choices for kids, such as pasta a pizza.
We loved Croatia and we loved Villa Rosa. We do hope to go back. Would thoroughly recommend to similar groups like ours!
We arrived to a warm welcome from Bozo the neighbor who acts as the caretaker. The property is much more impressive in person. We quickly settled in and started to enjoy the laid back location and great weather. The village is very pretty with everything you need in easy walking distacnce. We did venture out to restaurants, wineries and the Island of Korchula among others. All were amazing, the dollar goes along way in this part of the world, which was a pleasant suprise. The only small issue we had was mosquitos as there had been a lot of rain since it was early in the season. We highly recommend The Croatian coast and this propery. Enjoy!
Two families from Norway with six children (4 - 14) had a great holiday in Villa Rosa in July 2015.
The villa is as nice as it looks on the photos, with a barbecue area and a small pool in the backyard and a front area over two levels. The property is well looked after and easy to live in – it’s not crammed with the owners personal property as some rentals are.
There is a small shop with the basics and a bit more virtually next door. We had a rental car for the week, but hardly used it. Although shopping in the supermarkets of Orebic is a bit cheaper, it is possible to take a taxi from the airport and shop locally. There are a number of small, surprisingly decent restaurants along the waterfront.
The beaches across the bay are busy with watersporting tourists, but the jetty and area just down from the villa is very quiet and pleasant. Remember to bring bathing shoes for the children. Looking at the map before we arrived, we were a bit worried about the traffic on the road, but there are few cars and they drive very slow along the waterfront.
Note that the two bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor have a separate entrance. You have to go out and up the outdoor stairway to get to the rest of the house. This was no problem other than for the logistics of organizing all the kids into practical subgroups.
There is a small sportsground by the school behind the villa. A good spot for early morning and late afternoon games, at least during the school holidays in Croatia...
We had a fabulous family holiday at Villa Rosa at the end of June.
The villa is an attractive traditional house, with great outside living areas, in an unspoilt village.
It was lovely to have the use of the pool, although the sea is just outside the door so we spent much of our time in there, and on there, in the kayaks.
There are plenty of little restaurants within walking distance. We particularly liked Bota 1865 in Kućišt and Konoba Forte Viganj, eccentric with excellent fresh seafood.
Water front property With the magical Dubrovnik only 2 hours drive away, Split 4 hours and Korcula a 15 minute ferry away (from Korcula connecting ferries can transport you to Hvar, Dubrovnik, Split and Istria making Viganj the perfect holiday base. Unusually for a house of this age and position it has a front and rear garden. The front garden is enclosed and is ideal for sunbathing with the sea being only feet away. The rear garden has a large terrace with a private pool and a large covered BBQ area with new black rattan table, chairs and sun loungers.
Out of the front gate, 6 or 7 steps and you are swimming in the crystal clear Adriatic sea. Or you could go for a sail in the laser sailing dinghy or go for a paddle in one of the kayaks.
In Viganj there is windsurfing, scuba diving and kite surfing schools (in main season) as well as over 6 great restaurants and beach bars.Villages Kuciste and Loviciste are just a short drive from the villa and also have some beautiful restaurants. Car hire is best purchased on-line before travel.
Orebic is only 7 km away with banks, supermarkets, car ferry port and doctors.
Other Activities: Viganj is one of the most popular Kite surfing /Wind surfing venues in Croatia
