About Lili Gaunt
I live in Croatia, having returned to my family roots after years of living in England and having a busy international career. I will be happy to share my love of Krk island and local knowledge, making sure you have a wonderful relaxing holiday.
Lili Gaunt purchased this Villa in 1995
Why Lili Gaunt chose Brusići
After returning back home to Croatia, Krk, a lush green island with the clear blue sea, was the right choice. A run down stone cottage in a little village, bought in 1995, was a challenge and a labour of love. Originally an olive press, it was transformed by the local builders and craftsmen into a spacious family home, loved and visited by both my English and Croatian family and friends.
What makes this Villa unique
The island of Krk is a great place for an active holiday, but after a day of swimming, sailing, walking or exploring the old towns and villages along the coast, it is great to come home and relax, have a quiet drink in the garden, smell the lavender, watch the butterflies, enjoy the sunset and the beautiful Mediterranean night sky.

Lovely spacious house
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is very spacious, well furnished and well equipped. Lili gave us a very warm welcome and good information about the island. We enjoyed eating outside and using the large bbq. Peaceful, private setting in the countryside and a good base for visiting different parts of the island.
Fantastic stay at Villa Lavanda
Villa Lavanda has everything you could possibly need , beautiful surroundings friendly locals. The owner Lili is a person who cannot do enough for your stay and goes above and beyond what anyone would expect. I cannot recommend enough and I and my family will be returning in the near future.

rural paradise with the scent of lavender
Very beautiful and well maintained house and garden for people who like nature and peaceful holidays. The house is spacious, you won´t step on each other´s toes. You will find everything you need for a wonderful time. Lili, the owner is a lovely lady with a good sense of "british" humor and provides lots of information about the island. We didn´t want to leave and will definately come back.
You were perfect guests! I am so happy you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you again.
This is a beautiful and lovely location. Very good for the ones who are looking for a secluded location that is still close to all the means of entertainment offered on the island.
The description is accurate. The villa has all the facilities one wants and the owner is more than lovely and helpful!
I would definitely recommend this location to a friend! I hope to be able to go back there one day!
Beautiful, clean and has all the facilities top locations offer!!
Thank you for your nice review. With a large, lively group, I am glad you found space, comfort and privacy you needed. Look forward to seeing your lovely family and friends again. Lili
Lovely House in a Rural Setting
The villa is very private, spacious and very well equipped. Lili the owner is an absolutely fantastic hostess and makes you instantly feel that her home is your home. Me, my friends and family have stayed at the villa on three or four occasions over the last few years and have never been disappointed.
You do need a car at this location, but Krk town is only 10mins away so you have the beauty of a very quiet location and being a short drive to the supermarkets, restaurants etc. of the main town and quiet local beach is also about a 10 minute drive
Beautiful island, villa and people! 10/10
I am so glad you feel at home in Villa Lavanda and enjoy a relaxed and fun holiday. It is always a pleasure to see you!
