Footprints is a large detached 5 bedroom beachfront residence with its own private pool positioned right on the sea front.
Fully renovated, the house dates from the 19th century, once a historic former Sea Captains detached stone residence. Located in the renowned picturesque mainland village of Viganj, with stunning views over to the amazing Korcula, birth place of Marco Polo. Located north of Dubrovnik, on the stunning Dalmatian Coast.
Viganj is a peaceful oceanside setting, within easy reach of Dubrovnik airport (I arrange transfer), with striking seafront views, beautiful beaches, restaurants and a vibrant windsurfing scene (ideal for children and adults of all ages - low cost tuition provided) and just a 10 minute foot-ferry trip on the village boat to historic 12th century Korcula (being the featured destination of the BBC 2 Rick Stein series for is historic and culinary excellence).
The restored stone villa has its own large private pool ( it's an ideal 8.9m x 5.6m in size) and wonderful views out to sea, with beaches a few footsteps from the front door!

Footprints Villa offers spacious living with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and sleeps 10. It has 2 large reception rooms, atrium, plus 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 to stunning decks, front and rear, to enjoy the access to the ocean & the huge sea front south-west patios, or around its large private pool to the rear of the home.
There is 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.
I also offer a free pre-arrival grocery shopping service. Just send me a list for basics you'd like for your first evening/breakfast and it will be awaiting you on your arrival. Groceries just charged as per the receipt.
Footprints Villa dates from the 19th century and was restored over a 4 year project from a ruin to its present glory with 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 & bath robes, 400 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 lengthy and rather hot in the summer months!
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 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!
