Located opposite the shop is the ferry. The 10-minute journey transports you to the beautiful island of Korcula, where you can first-hand experience the Mediterranean ambiance.

About Sally Rowe

After spending time searching around different locations in Croatia, we stumbled upon the small village of Viganj and instantly fell in love with its unique rustic charm. We viewed many different sites in the area until we found the soon to be Villa Rosa and embarked on the journey of resurrecting the ruin to becoming a welcoming family home. Originally the villa was built approximately 300 years ago by a sea captain. The historic charm of the villa and village influenced us into ensuring that we kept to the true Dalmatian background when restoring the house into what it is now. We bought the house in 2004 and after 4 years of renovations we have carefully retained the original features but also offer a modern elegance.

Sally Rowe purchased this villa in 2004

What makes this villa unique

Viganj is a small tourist place on the western part of the Peljesac peninsula, only 8km from Orebic.It is said that Viganj is a botanical garden in itself, rich with flowers and bushes brought as gifts by seamen to their beloved wives from their journeys. The population has long been involved in agriculture, fishing and, more recently, tourism.

Visit historical sites such as: the St. Ivan church (located on an eponymous hill and offers a beautiful view of the Peljesac canal), St. Ilija hill and the Nakrana village.

Viganj is rich with pebble beaches and is very popular among sports and active vacation fans, especially those who enjoy water activities (windsurfing, sailing, diving…).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jamie,



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.

Beautifully Renovated Villa in an Idyllic Village Location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 10 adults staying at Villa Rosa. Before we even arrived, Sally had been very helpful by phone and email by answering questions regarding our booking, the villa, boat hire and surrounding area. We even discussed options on how to get to Viganj from UK and potential days out (one of which was Mljet, which was fantastic!)

The neighbour Bozo was waiting to greet us when we arrived and was on hand any time that we needed help with anything during our stay. The villa is very well appointed and while tastefully modernised, you do get the feeling you are staying in a real piece of Croatian history, especially with the beautiful stone walls. The AC units in the bedrooms were very useful for getting a good nights sleep too! The rear garden and pool are immaculate with beautiful stone walls and patio. Villa Rosa has everything on its doorstep: the sea, a mini-market, fresh fish from the quayside, great restaurants, the ferry and sunsets. Having the use of the bikes, sailing dinghy and kayaks added another dimension to our stay. It was great to go explore further afield by bike on the very safe seafront road, and we enjoyed our morning swim, sail and kayak sessions with the whole family in the clear, warm Adriatic Sea all just 10 paces from our front gate.

A few small minor points were: not many cups and bowls etc for such a large group; the pool is same depth throughout so not ideal for non-swimmers; no food prep area next to the (fantastic) BBQ and no dining table at the rear. Need to be quiet after 9pm because of neighbours behind the property.

We really loved our time at Villa Rosa. The whole Peljesac peninsula is a wonderful part of Croatia and the best wines come from here. It still feels unspoilt and there are no huge holiday complexes around! The village of Viganj is busy, but quietly so, without huge crowds; a real good spot to unwind and relax. The worst part of staying here was having to leave after two weeks, but we all took very special memories with us to keep forever. We would definitely recommend Villa Rosa to anyone looking for a really special Croatian holiday experience.

Fantastic location. Wonderful outdoor space. Good amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The location was fantastic. It was wonderful just to cross the quiet road to get to the jetty and the sea opposite the property. The well stocked shop was 100 yards away and there were a variety of local restaurants within walking distance. We were able to travel to the island of Korcula using the passenger ferry which stopped just outside the shop. We were also able to hire a boat for the day from the nearby travel agents and were picked up from outside the shop. It was great to have use of the kayaks, mountain bikes, table tennis table, bbq and pool. The outside space was well designed with space for dining, sunbathing and shady spots. It was a short walk to the windsurfing school where they catered for beginners. We hired cars to get from the airport but we only used them once to get to the bay of Loviste as there was plenty to do in and around Viganj.

Beautifully renovated villa perfect for our two families

  • 5 of 5

Spreading over three levels, with lovely outdoor areas in front of and behind the house, the villa enabled our group to spread out. The covered seating adjacent the pool offered welcome afternoon shade. Although we only cooked the occasional breakfast, the kitchen was well equipped. It was great being handy to the shop for cold drinks, and to the wharf for jumping in for a dip.

Best house in the village .....

  • 5 of 5

A fantastically beautiful home in the centre of the village of Viganj . Everything was perfect in the house and the 'toys' provided were put to good use - bikes -pool - kayaks -table tennis .

The house is 2 minutes from the sea with a lovely jetty to sit on . Lots of little beaches along the rd 2/3 mins away. The sea in June was the clearest and warmest I have ever swam in for the time of year. The village has a wonderful vibe to it - very laid back - you won't want to leave. It is uncommercialised and so pretty especially with all the blossom trees in bloom

Bob the caretaker was charming and took us in his boat to Korcula and collected us late at night - a star.

The supermarket is 3 min walk away and is very well stocked. Restaurants of note - Forte - fabulous fish, no menu and reasonable

The Villa is located in an excellent position and the photos on here do not do it justice. We were there with my sons and partners 25-33 yrs and they all loved it

They all tried windsurfing and paddle boarding at Water Donkey who were very helpful

For a large party to holiday you can't beat it. The owners were most pleasant and prompt in all my dealings with them

I can't recommend highly enough

Thanks S & J

Beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

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.

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
