Villa Vista is a fantastic location for larger group holiday - whether that is two families, a multi-generational celebration or group of friends looking to reunite.

Over our 11 years of holiday letting we have hosted weddings, significant birthdays, university reconnections, international family reunions as well as plenty of one family and smaller groups escapes. Regardless of the make-up, all have been left with fond lifelong memories based on the brilliant experience the Villa delivers and the wonderful place that is the village of Viganj.

The Villa is also a superb example of how to restore a magnificent 350-year-old stone house to its original grandeur together with all mod cons, high comfort level and a wonderful large pool in an outstanding setting.

The Villa's large inside and outside spaces mean there is a ton of room for the whole team to be together and equally, the opportunity to find somewhere quiet for a snooze or read.

There are a number of good bistros nearby but if you enjoy shopping for local produce and cooking up a storm, the Villa’s kitchen is set up for you. A large 120 cm oven and 5 gas ring hob is complimented by an amazing stone open BBQ with all the equipment you need to prepare a fantastic meal which can be shared on the terrace taking in the breath-taking views over the Adriatic in the shade on an invariably warm day, or under the stars at night.

In summary, Villa Vista the perfect tonic for the stresses of modern life.

Sitting above the village of Viganj at the tip of the Peljesac Peninsular, the amazing views from the large terrace and large swimming pool take in the length of the island of Korcula and its vineyards, and the beauty of the Medieval Citadel of Korcula Town across the sparkling crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic – and this with the sea just 250 meters from the terrace steps.

We also have access to a second villa that sleeps 8 acting as an ideal overflow for larger events.

About Jane Grant

A New Zealander living in Woking in the UK for the past 25(!) years, living with my husband Craig, daughter Ella, dog Monty and our chickens.. We fell in love with Croatia on our first trip in 2003 which set us off hunting for our perfect holiday home. We found Villa Vista the next year and set about putting it back to its former self. By all accounts, including the locals, we did a pretty good job of it. We knew there were a number of old stone houses in the area but bought and renovated this one because of history and commanding position. We make an active contribution to village life and have made many goods friends in Viganj, our home away from home. Jane

Jane Grant purchased this Villa in 2004

Why Jane Grant chose Viganj

Why this property? Our guests love being here! Villa Vista has the best of both worlds in Viganj. It is a stones throw from the Village - it's shops, bars, restaurants, sea etc., and yet has the peace, calm and unbelievable views due to its enviable position just above the village. It has been described by a recent stayer as being in your own private resort. It is tough to beat waking up and being able to see up to 10 Adriatic islands over you morning coffee or tea - or lunch and dinner over a chilled glass of lovely local wine. Largest private swimming pool in the area. Private, secluded position.

                                                                  This is actually the third time we have stayed in this perfect gem. It's hard to describe the pure magic of this place. It is stunningly beautiful, quiet, well stocked, easy to relax. Yet just a short jaunt down the road, either by foot or by car is the awesome action of a seaside village with lovely bars/restaurants, kiting, shopping, biking, boating, tennis etc. The people are amazing, some of the nicest in the world. The winerys are an easy day trip, as is Korcula, another fabulous must see. Then back to the oasis of this beautiful property. We did look at changing our location to be in the village and decided against it because we truly enjoyed the feeling each day of 'getting away' from it all. I highly recommend this place to any group that is looking to relax and have fun, it offers the perfect balance. I will be going back again and again.

                                                                  Hi Wendy,

                                                                  It is always lovely to have to you back to the villa and thank you for writing this wonderful review. We really do work hard to make sure the villa holds its standards for every guest, every year and it seems this hard work has paid off for you and family. Cant agree more with the "getting away" from it all with your sentiments reflected in those of other guests reviews too.

                                                                  Very much look forward to welcoming you back soon.

                                                                  Jane

                                                                  wonderful villa and plenty to do

                                                                  Jane C.

                                                                  A wonderful and comfort villa with fabulous views of the sea and the beautiful island of Korcula . So much to do on the doorstep for all ages, from cycling, walking, wine tasting on the land and boating, wind and kite surfing in the crystal clear sea. Safe local village for youngsters to walk and hang out in. Highly recommended.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

It is indeed a wonderful place and as you say, so much to do right on the doorstep yet enough away from the bustle of the village to be able to able to relax in your own private resort too.

                                                                  Best regards

                                                                  Sheila T.Bethesda MD

                                                                  Spectacular views overlooking the water and Korcula. House is charming and well-maintained and equipped for large gatherings. It was the perfect place for my husband to celebrate his fantasy 60th birthday with good friends. Even though we weren't windsurfers, it was fun to watch them enjoying their idea of paradise. Jane (owner) is attentive and suggested many local spots for eating and activities. House is maintained by a friendly band of locals who were only too willing to help us with inane questions and minor issues. Can't wait to celebrate my 60th!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks for taking the time to write this review Sheila. I know this was a big event for you all, months maybe even a year in the planning with friends and family travelling from the US and all points north and south. I am delighted you had such a wonderful time and that the villa and my local team lived up to my promise of a special location for a special occasion.

                                                                  Safe onward travels and roll on your 60th!

                                                                  Best regards

                                                                  Super villa,fabulous views

                                                                  Caroline N.

                                                                  Interrupted a motor homing holiday, for a week in Villa Vista with our three children & their partners, all in their 20,s I had researched villas & areas( having never been to Croatia before) & the children had voted on my three final choices.The Peljesac peninsula is stunning & in June didn't seem very busy at all.

                                                                  Jane had said a small motor home could access the property but it was a heart in the mouth journey up from the road! With the childrens two hire cars it wasn't moved again until we left.

                                                                  Our daughter who had arrived before us from Dubrovnik airport( such an easy journey) rushed outside to meet us exclaiming " it's even better than the photos ".

                                                                  It was fabulous, great views,spacious,really well equipped & comfortable.

                                                                  The pool was a real bonus( particularly after a walk up the hill after the morning bread run) & we spent the late afternoons playing pool volley ball. The offspring tried their hand at windsurfing, we all snorkelled in the lovely clear waters & had some great food & wine both locally & on our outings.The sun shone every day. It was bliss- need I go on?!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I feel totally envious reading the wonderful reviews we get from our guests - I want to be there now! So for me the next 10 days until we get back to our wonderful retreat can't go fast enough.

                                                                  Thank you for taking a moment to share you and your families experience of staying at the wonderful Vila Vista.

                                                                  For sure the swimming pool is a definitely a bonus post the morning bread walk to the village, but it is a great way to start the day and the peace and view you get from the villa is truly unique. We also love escaping the bustle of the waterfront back to the peace and chill the villa offers in contrast - your very own slice of paradise.

                                                                  Let me know when you want to come back !

                                                                  Regards

                                                                  Perfect

                                                                  Craig R.

                                                                  A group of 8 of us stayed at Villa Vista for a 10th University reunion. We chose this villa based on the earlier reviews on this site and we were not in anyway disappointed.

                                                                  The Villa is exceptionally well equipped from truly comfortable beds, the kitchen through to the pool area and the views from both terraces are outstanding. There is a ton of space for everyone which meant we could hang out together or take time out from the group.

                                                                  The village offered something for all of us - water sports, cute restaurants and bars and a good local shop. Nearby larger Orebic was great for larger shopping etc.

                                                                  The Villa's position means you can take advantage of all on offer while being able escape the busy waterfront and relax over a glass of wine [ or two ] in our own space.

                                                                  Cant rate this place highly enough and we will be back.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We love that we can easily be in the village with all that happens and get away to our own slice of heaven too. I am off there on Tuesday for the better part of the week and can't wait for some late September sun.

                                                                  Hope to hear from you again soon.

                                                                  Matthew R.-

                                                                  It's difficult to describe just how wonderful our stay at Villa Vista was, from the unbelievably exquisite views, that changed by the hour, to the long, lazy hours spent in the hammock reading a book and drinking some of the peninsular's stunning wines, to swimming in the clear blue sea and sleeping in the comfortable beds.

                                                                  There was enough space for us all to relax together, or be apart, the pool area was well maintained and it was a delight to see so many beautiful plants and trees growing in the garden. The owners care and attention to every detail was truly outstanding.

                                                                  We'll be back, we felt the magic!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
