SEAFRONT - Footprints Villa is a beautifully restored contemporary 19th century 5 bedroom beachside residence with large private pool in the picturesque village of Viganj, north of Dubrovnik, Croatia.
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 can arrange 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 (nearest) or Split. 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 UKTV2GO - 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 mid May to mid October each year.
