Villa overview - owner's description

Footprints Villa is a large detached 5 bedroom (sleeps 10) beach front villa with private pool in mainland village of Viganj, on the Peljesac Peninsula, Dalmatian coast, Croatia.

It's a restored 19th century former sea captains residence, enjoying a magnificent position right on the sea front, with a lovely south-westerly facing panorama and its own large private pool.

Being located on the Dalmatian mainland there is no need to catch a ferry, saving hours of travel time, especially in peak season. Viganj is opposite the famed island of Korcula, where you can enjoy experiencing the old 12th century walled city - accessible via the little foot ferry that leaves just 200m from the villa.

Viganj and the adjacent villages/towns have many excellent family run restaurants, serving seafood caught in the bay. The village is also Croatia's premium windsurfing and kiteboarding capital, with great facilities, tuition for beginners and is quite a spectical for those on shore to enjoy (the villa's seafront terraces overlook the main areas).

For those wishing to stay closer to shore, the village has delightful little beaches, with boutique bars dotted along the sea edge through the village and beyond.

It's a perfect sea side escape for groups & families.

I am Richard, the (UK) owner and it will be my pleasure to be of service from the moment you enquire.

I can arrange low cost airport (Dubrovnik) transfers to and from the the villa, far cheaper than those offered on line through a general search. Cars can be hired locally for days out. ALSO, I offer a free pre-arrival shopping service - just send me a list for provisions you will require for your first evening and all will be awaiting you upon your arrival. Groceries simply charged as detailed on the receipt.

My sea edge villa home has exposed original stone blending with stylish, contemporary finishings, hi-end sanitary ware & furnishings. Footprints is fully air-conditioned, and heated if you come in the cooler months. The villa actually dates back 2 centuries and its original features have been carefully retained, yet it offers modern elegance in one the most amazing location one would wish to find in Croatia.

You'd fly to Dubrovnik (I can advise about flights).

My home is near the 18th century church in the middle of the village as is every facility one requires (beaches, bars, restaurant, shop, water taxi), although as the property is elevated and walled, privacy is ensured.

As well as an IPod Dock, my TV system runs UKTV EVERYWHERE - a new Internet system provide top UK and International channels.

Of course, there is free high speed wireless Internet all through the villa.

You may be interested to read in the publication - 'The Croatian Adriatic', published by N&N, available on line and a definitive guide to Croatia, that it states in this region's section - 'the houses & bay of Viganj form what is the most beautiful location on the Adriatic'.

The lovely pool is private and is in the rear courtyard, and a good size at 8.3mx 6m. It's surrounded by sun beds & has a stone dining table for all. The villa is fully gated to secure little wandering guests from escaping.

The front of the villa, overlooking the clear and inviting Adriatic is the real unique feature of my villa. A huge terrace, west facing with comfy settee for lounging, and a further stone table and chairs for sunset dining is such a special place to just take in the beauty with your family and friends. My photos can't fully impart its great setting.

It's worth noting that Viganj hosts the national and World windsurfing championships, so from the terrace you can watch the pro's doing there stuff as well as have a go yourself. Tuition is offered on our beach to beginners. If teenagers are in your party, they will love to 'hang out' with the surfers (one of my first photos shows the beach, (with bars for a beer) from where this exhilarating sport can be enjoyed...or just watched!).

My open the villa for my clients from May to mid October each year.

I have a wonderful local manager who speaks several languages, and she will assist with any thing you may need during your holiday. She is also responsible for oversees the cleaning, servicing, pool care etc.

I will do all I can to be of service. I will reply to your enquiry immediately. You will not have to wait for a reply and answers to your questions.

Now please read on, take a look at the photos and facility lists further down this listing and if you have any questions, just complete the enquiry section. I provide my UK landline and mobile with my reply and invite you to call with any questions you may have.

Location, Location, Location Great house in a wonderful location. We thoroughly enjoyed the laid back Viganj lifestyle during a week of perfect weather. The locals are friendly, water sports are reasonably priced, the house was comfortable and well equipped and the owner was a pleasure to deal with. However the highlight for us was the location of the house just yards from the clear, warm sea and with gorgeous views. Swimming multiple times a day without having to take more than a few strides was a real winner. Highly recommended! CH

Fantastic Villa in a wonderful location. We have had the pleasure of staying in one of Richards Majorcan Villas before so we knew that it would be wonderful and we were certainly not disappointed! There is so much attention to detail, so much comfort and so many extras that can take your breath away. The welcome pack was outstanding, the toiletries lovely and the use of bathrobes are not commonly seen. The kitchen is superbly equipped and allows for enough settings that there is no waiting for the dishwasher to finish. It would be difficult if not impossible to find a way to improve on the villa. The location just across a narrow lane and you are can be in the clear blue sea, the views from the front terrace are so lovely. The rear area has the pool and plenty of sun loungers with the upper rear balcony overlooking the pool area. There is a good supermarket very close and several eating establishments within walking distance and lots of places to visit nearby. I hope that we can return one day

Jaqui H Sep 2018

Excellent property and location. Listing was described perfectly. The villa was spotless and in such a great location. Two families stayed in the villa and was just right for our requirements. Within walking distance was a supermarket for basic needs and plenty of local restaurants. Although easy to book a taxi into the local town, no-one paticularly wanted to leave such a relaxed, unspoilt location. Water sport facilities close by and perfect for wind and kite surfing. Booking a boat is highly recommended for a half day trip including lunch. Was so good, we went twice!

Lynne Murphy Jul 2018

Absolutely fabulous in every way! The villa is fantastic and we were all bowled over by it. We loved just walking across the road and getting in the sea and then sitting on the Jetty. Before I went I was not sure how I felt about not being able to lie on a sandy beach but it made not one jot of difference. We loved that the village was not too big or busy. We ate in 3 different restaurants and went over to Korcula one evening and had dinner with friends who were sailing. We also hired a small boat one day and went to a cove down the coast with only a restaurant and had lunch. On our way back to the airport we went into Dubrovnik for a couple of hours. Wow how stunning!!! I really hope to return to your villa soon Richard.

Deb D Jul 2018

Amazing Villa! I highly recommend Footprints Villa, sitting right on the sea front in the picture postcard village of Viganj. We has a fantastic time! The large villa was ideal for our two family party, with a big pool in the private courtyard and a seafront terrace with stunning views. Lots of space, fabulous rooms. The owners attention to detail is worth noting. Invaluable help before arrival too from the owner who sorted transfers, arrival lunch, even groceries bought and placed in the villa for our arrival. Try the boat charter arranged by the lovely agent Fani. Incredible value. Best of all...the location...right on the sea and close to lovely little bars and restaurants. First time to Croatia. It won’t be our last.

Tama Lees Jun 2018

Perfect spot for an extended family adventure. Footprints Villa was the perfect home for our extended family's vacation. The house was clean and well appointed. The terrace fronting the house was a lovely spot to eat meals, drink the wonderful local wines and gaze at the gorgeous blue Adriatic. Viganj is a sweet little town with everything we needed just a short walk away. Turn right and walk to the cash machine and local grocery. Turn left and find several great restaurants and Water Donkey windsurfing/kayak/SUP rentals. We couldn't have been happier with our choice.

James Cannon May 2018

Sea front relaxation. A wonderful stay at this sea front property. It felt like we were on a boat we were so close - wonderful sunsets , fab location opposite Korcula and a stunning villa. Richard and Fani looked after us really well. Many Thanks James Helen and family

Breakfast by the sea. Our first trip to Croatia was as a result of a recommendation of this villa. We knew the credentials of the owner after staying in another property. After an interesting drive from Dubrovnic, courtesy of local minibus driver Peter, we arrived in the quiet village of Viganj, right at the edge of the calm sea. There it was, perched a very minor road width from the waters edge. The view from the front terrace was wonderful and a favourite of our party of six. Despite the private pool at the rear with its own eating area, or the rooftop terrace, this was the place to eat. Sun all day and a sunset in the evening. A calm sea, views across to korcula. Bliss. The rest of the villa was huge with a little used dining/lounge area and a kitchen you could party in. The bedrooms were luxuriously comfortable each with ensuite facilities. The villa itself was a treat but around it was a quiet and easy going affair. We were there at the end of the season and the bars and restaurants, of which there were a few good ones within a few minute walk, were relaxed and good value. The fish and seafood was excellent. Also within walking distance was the water sports schools where you can hire equipment. Recommended. Beyond the immediate village, Orebic was a long walk with more bars and more facilities. There was a local bus service though if you didn't have a car. Failing that, Peter was always available. The island of korcula, was reached twice a day from just down the road from the villa or several times from Orebic. Well worth a visit. And also a stopping off point for ferries to other islands. All in all, a great week for our introduction to Croatia, and one I would recommend if you like the peaceful laid back type of holiday and you are willing to explore the area. One thing for sure, you won't be disappointed with the villa. You won't want to leave.

Location, Location, Location! The warning that "If it looks too good to be true-it probably is !" is overturned by Footprints! This place really is as good as it looks. The location is amazing. " Near the sea" -really does mean near the sea! But its not just the sea-the local supermarket, cycle and water sports hire shops and restaurants are also a few steps away yet the location is quiet, friendly and peaceful. The villa had everything we needed as an extended family group of 10. Its very well equipped, has a wonderful pool, air conditioning , lashings of hot water, super fast Wi-Fi, UK TV and some wonderful outside eating and sun bathing areas - along with some quirky furniture and fittings. The 15 minute boat trip to Korcula is a must and our mixed age group family found plenty to do without the need for a car. All in all - Footprints provided a wonderful holiday . We are already planning our next stay! Tony, Suzanne ( Norfolk) and family (West Yorkshire)

Craig W Jul 2017

Another fantastic holiday at Footprints in Viganj. Another great 2 week holiday at the Footprints Villa in Viganj. It's been 5 years since we last stayed at the villa and it is still as stunning as the first time. The pace of life in Viganj is so laid back it's impossible not to unwind in the beautiful surroundings. We love sitting out on the front patio watching the boats and kitesurfers fly past! I would highly recommend hiring a boat and skipper for the day (organised by the tourist office in the village) as we had a great day out to Korcula - visiting the old town and some of the beaches there. The area is great for water sports - a great kite surfing spot, my kids learnt to windsurf at the Water Donkey centre and we also hired Paddle Boards/Kyaks from them. If you like chilled out relaxing holidays I can't recommend Footprints enough.

Rob Lamb Jul 2017

Wonderful stay at Footprints We stayed in footprints villa for a week, and it was nothing short of outstanding! The layout is absolutely perfect for two families. We loved the many outside seating areas at the front and rear. The villa is beautifully appointed and has everything you need. The location is fabulous....breathtaking views of the sea on your doorstep,and close to all the local amenities. We love Croatia and usually motorboat to different areas but this year we decided to rent a villa and a day boat and we certainly weren't disappointed!! The owner arranged our transfers etc and the driver was so helpful and friendly, taking us to a lovely old town en route to the villa for lunch. We were two families of four and it catered superbly to everyone's needs.... we didn't want to leave!!!

Just back from a lovely weeks stay at Footprints villa in Viganj. The villa has a superb location, right by the sea and is well equipped with all mod cons. Although Verganj is small and relatively undeveloped we managed just fine without a car. The local shop was very well stocked with cash dispenser and fresh bread/ croissants daily and there were a selection of reasonable bars/ restaurants within walking distance - our favourite was Bota 1865 in Kučište, a pleasant 20 minute flat stroll along the sea front. We also enjoyed getting the ferry over to the much livelier resort of Korcula several times which conveniently departs at 19:00 returning at 23:00 to enabling access to the many great restaurants and bars there. Richard's agent Fani was on hand should we have needed anything but we managed just fine without any assistance.

Jane B Jun 2017

Beautiful Seafront Villa! A beautiful seafront villa with an amazing view! This location is perfect for all services, restaurants, ferry to Korcula, supermarket and water sports rental. The villa is well serviced and spotlessly clean! A memorable trip and our family would not hesitate to return!

Carol G Jun 2017

Quality accommodation in an outstanding location. We had a wonderful family holiday at Footprints Villa Viganj. It was better than we expected, the sea is literally on your doorstep and the pool area was great for a sunbathe and refreshing swim as well as evening BBQ’s. There are several restaurants in walking distance as is the grocery store and Water Donkey (wind and kite surfing centre). Our favourite restaurant was Bistro Ponta, good service, great food and excellent value for money. Fani the onsite agent was friendly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Petar our taxi driver was reliable informative and very friendly. If you want a relaxing holiday in a home from home accommodation where you can unwind and watch the sunsets across the bay this is definitely the place for you.

Carol W Aug 2016

We had a fabulous time the villa was all we could wish for we hired boats took the ferry and went on a speed boat which was brilliant for the day Would certainly recommend footprints to our friends our only disappointment was the children were to young to wind surf!! But we did try and get to grips with the paddle boards. Fani does you credit nothing was too much trouble for her a lovely lady in fact all the locals were very friendly and the supermarket staff really helpful We chose well thank you.

John S Jul 2016

The villa is beautifully maintained and the owner, Richard, takes a real interest in helping make sure your trip runs smoothly. The location though is everything, the village of Viganj is wonderful, 8 restaurants and we tried about half of them, all friendly and the food is good solid Croatian fare. The villa is literally on the beach and sitting on the front terrace watching sunsets and shooting stars is nothing short of magical. A brief boat ride to old Korcula town is a must, known as a mini Dubrovnik and it doesn't disappoint. Finally if you do like water sports, Viganj is world class, my 6 and 9 year olds loved learning to windsurf - all a brief stroll from your front door.

Clodagh B Jul 2016

We couldn't have asked for more. Very comfortable, well equipped Villa in a perfect location with a warm welcome from the delightful agent Fani. The sea yards from the door, swimming pool in your back yard. Restaurants,shop and Ferry to Korcula within easy walking distance. Perfect place for friends and family to be able to stay together and yet not get under each others feet. Plenty to do, windsurfing, paddle boarding, swimming, boat rides, running, eating, drinking and most of all relaxing with beautiful views in every direction. We would love to return to this very special villa in its very special location.

Alex K Jul 2016

THE VILLA WAS IN AN IDYLLIC POSITION JUST FEET FROM THE SEA WITH FANTASTIC SPACE SUITABLE FOR OUR LARGE FAMILY. IT WAS WELL EQUIPPED AND THE OWNER ARRANGED TRANSFERS FROM DUBROVNIK AIRPORT. THE VILLAGE HAS A FANTASTIC SHOP JUST A FEW HUNDRED YARDS WALK AWAY WHICH HAS ITS OWN BAKERY WITHIN. OPPOSITE THIS A FERRY RUNS THREE TIMES A DAY TO KORKULA WITH ANCIENT COBBLED STREETS AND A WONDERFUL ARRAY OF RESTAURANTS. WITHIN THE PEACEFUL VILLAGE ITSELF THERE IS A FABULOUS FRIENDLY WINDSURFING/KITESURFING SCHOOL WHICH ALSO HIRES BIKES. YOU CAN CYCLE OR WALK ALONG THE QUIET ROAD WHICH RUNS IN FRONT OF THE VILLA AND THERE WERE MANY RESTAURANTS WALKING DISTANCE AWAY WHICH OFFERED FRESH LOCAL FISH AND SEAFOOD AS WELL AS DELICIOUS ICE CREAMS AND PANCAKES. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOOTPRINTS FOR A TRANQUIL AND BLISSFUL HOLIDAY. WE LOOK FORWARD TO OUR NEXT VISIT!

Vivien L Jun 2016

The property is spacious with terrific views. A well equipped kitchen with a wonderful welcome pack of goodies. Viganji is a beautiful spot and an absolute haven for water sports enthusiasts.

Laura R May 2016

The town of Viganj is picture perfect and this has to be the very best villa in town. I was there with 6 girlfriends and will we headed back in 2 weeks with my extended family, can't wait. The villa is perfectly located and Richard was so helpful. We had a driver take us on a vineyard tour and a boat ride to sample fresh oysters. Still my favorite part of the trip was just sitting on the front porch looking out over the sea. It is truly a magical place!

Louise K Sep 2015

We had a fantastic holiday here in Footprints Villa. It was 5 star accommodation and we really miss looking out to the sea whilst having our shower! We found the villa to be of very high quality and it was lovely to sit out on the terrace and watch the sun go down and to hear the waves lap against the beach. We often would go down into the sea after filling ourselves up at breakfast with the freshly cooked bread from the shop only 2 minutes away. We found 5 restaurants in Viganji that were all reasonably priced. Although the food was good we did find it a little repetitive. There was a lot more choice over in Korcula where we went most evenings, catching the little ferry boat from outside the shop. This only cost £3.00 return. Korcula is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit. It was wonderfully clean, and all the local people were very friendly. Footprints villa was in the most perfect location and we would have found it hard to beat. We will definatley be returning! Croatia is a hidden gem with stunning scenery. Richard Afleck the owner was a fantastic, arranging everything for us. We all had a well rested holiday and recommend this fantastic villa to anyone who loves luxury and relaxing in perfect surroundings. Thank you Richard. It was fabulous!

We just spent an absolutely glorious week at Footprints in Viganj. Two families, 10 of us in total enjoyed all the villa had to offer in this lovely village. We ate out every evening and enjoyed Forte which is a bit slow and chaotic but wonderful food. A special mention to Slaven at Karmela's, one minute from the villa. He is the nicest guy serving great food, especially the fresh fish. His sister works in the tourist office and they are a good source of information. The villa was perfect for all our needs and we tended to eat lunch on the terrace every day - the supermarket and local fruit and veg shop have all you will need. The supermarket has an ATM. The fishing boats come in at this point and we bought kilos of fresh fish for £3. Delicious barbecued. Our families all enjoyed hiring SUPs, windsurfers and kayaks from Water Donkey where the guys are very friendly and efficient. Watch out for Bonita the miniature pig who was a particular hit with our children. We decided not to hire cars and instead thanks to Richard the owner, met Stevie and Paula who drove us in a minivan whenever we needed transport. Some of the more intrepid members went to Bosnia to visit Mostar and we all enjoyed trips to Oribec, Loviste and Korcula. Well worth it in all cases. Definitely full marks from us to Footprints villa.

Ali64 Aug 2015

We were a party of 7, a family of 5 plus the older chiidren's 2 girlfriends so the ensuite rooms were ideal, giving everyone their own space. The communal areas were really spacious, enabling the 7 of us to enjoy each others company while preparing food/drinks, eating in the sun (at either ample outside table), and lazing round the pool. We ate out each evening bar one when we barbequed at the villa. Good choice of local restaurants where food and service great. The local supemarket and fruit/veg shop have all you need for breakfasts and lunches. The larger supermarket in the neighbouring town has a better choice of meat for bbq. The local ferry is very convenient for a trip to Korcula, which is well worth a visit. Fantastic service from Stiijepo (Steve) who collected us at the airport, giving lots of tourist information on the journey to the villa and once there provided us with minibus travel around the area, advice on places to eat and things to see. Only negative - we were only there for a week!!

Lynne A Aug 2015

Just back from a weeks stay at this amazing villa which was one of the best I have ever stayed in and location is perfect. The villa has everything you could ask for and all rooms are very spacious and well presented. Location is perfect for local shops, restaurants and bars. Loads of activities on your doorstep including windsurfing, hiring boats, diving. Loved this place and will be back.
