About the Property

5 Bedroom, 5 bath, pool, wifi, air-con. Amazing seafront location. English owner

I HAVE MY OWN WEBSITE. FOR LOTS MORE PHOTOS & INFORMATION. www.footprintsvillacroatia.com

Footprints Villa is a large detached 5 bedroom beach access villa with private pool in Viganj, Croatia. Fully renovated, the house dates from the 19th century, once a historic former Sea Captains detached stone residence. Located on the sea front 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, the villa is within easy reach.

Viganj is a peaceful oceanside setting, within easy reach of Dubrovnik airport (I arrange transfer from as little as £12-18* per person), 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 in the August 2015 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 (up to 12 if infants in cots). 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 etc....leading 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 ATM....all 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!

Car: Not Necessary

Footprints Villa is the ideal family holiday villa. Located right on the sea front, as well as having a large private pool, this detached, imposing restoration of a 19th century house is located in Viganj, a delightful sea front village of the wine area of Croatia as well as it being the wind surfing capital of the country too! The villa is located on the mainland, so no need to catch a ferry to the islands, which, if due to flight delays can be very stressful!

With the backdrop of Mount Isla, this very upmarket fishing village, is a delight! Quiet, relaxed and perfect for a family holiday. Located on the Pelejsac Peninsula, the village looks over to the 12th century city of Korcula, know as the 'mini Dubrovnik'. Korcula is a 10 minute boat ride to visit during your stay.

Viganj is also the perfect place to enjoy the benefits of staying right on the crystal clear Adriatic, with plentiful water sports, snorkelling, fishing or just swimming right outside your door! Easy to access from Dubrovnik, the area is the nation's wine growing region. The food here is all organic, and the seafood is excellent. The villa's location makes walking access to bars, resturants, the supermarket and of course the beaches, just foot steps away. Thankfully, no need to use the car! In 'The Croatian Adriatic' guide, published by N&N, states 'the houses and bay form what is the most beautiful location on the Adriatic! This really is a very special and luxurious home.

Footprints Villa has free wireless internet.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hello! I bought Footprints villa as a roofless ruin back in 2008, but knew with some hard work, I could restore it to its former glory as the former Sea Captains house it once was. The position of course, being sea front, is unrivalled, and made me all the more enthused to create a great home. It took 3 more years to complete the project to what you can now see.

Why the Owner Chose Viganj, Croatia:
Why this property? It's always been very rare indeed to find a large, historic sea front house with plenty of outside space, but after 4 years of visiting and searching Croatia, when this popped up, I grabbed it. It took nearly 3 years to create Footprints as it is today, with over 40 return visits as the restoration progressed.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Sea front living on a holiday can't be beaten. Not just for direct access to the sea, amazing views, but also the convenience of being able to wander to all local facilities (no 'a short walk' or ''just a 5 minute drive for the shops and beach' with this villa!!). We spend enough time behind the wheel of a car not to have to do the same on our holidays.....,there is no need for a car at Footprints...I can recommend transfers for you...as you are in the village, on the beach, everything is within walking distance (shops, bars, great restaurants). Better still, my villa is on the mainland, so no waiting for hours and hours in the summer sun (after 3-4 hour flights and car journeys) queuing for a ferry to the outer islands such as Brac, Miljet, Hvar etc etc! We supply wireless Internet of course and bath, hand AND pool/beach towels, plus also a large array of complimentary toiletries. An extensive welcome pack is provided, with my compliments. I have excellent stay who care for my guests when in residence, and as you can see from my many reviews, their service is welcome and appreciated.
