Footprints self catering villa is a large detached 5 bedroom self catering villa with private pool right on the seafront in the lovely mainland village of Viganj, Croatia.
I also have my own web site - www.footprintsvillacroatia.com
Fully restored, this 19th century former sea captains residence enjoys stunning south-westerly facing sea views and beyond to the island of Korcula.
The self catering villa is located in the historic seaside village of Viganj (pronounced vee-gan), north of Dubrovnik on the Dalmatian mainland. Being on the mainland, there is no need to catch a ferry to island destinations, 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 100m from the villa.
Viganj has 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 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 safe, seaside escape for groups & families.
Just a little about myself and my self catering villa home...I am Richard, the British owner. After buying the property, we spent 3 years of painstaking and dedicated restoration using local craftsmen.
If you choose to come and stay, 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. I also offer a free pre-arrival shopping service - just send me a list for provisions you will require for your first evening/breakfast and all will be awaiting you upon your arrival. Groceries simply charged as detailed on the receipt. Complimentary vineyard tour also included, including food!
My sea edge self catering 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 self catering 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 right on the sea front, near the 18th century church in the middle of the village so no car is needed, as every facility one requires (beaches, bars, restaurant, shop, water taxi) is no more than 100 metres in either direction.
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 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 of 8.3mx 6m. It's surrounded by sun beds & has a locally made stone dining table for all. The self catering 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.
It's worth noting that Viganj hosts the national, and every few words the 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!).
I own and operate the self catering villa directly with all clients who enquire and book. I have my own site or, you can book below. Homeaway now adds a booking fee for using this site. I can assure you of a personal service and can answer any questions you have.
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.
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. I have my own web site with lots more information and a secure booking system that takes credit cards. www.footprintsvillacroatia.com.
Booking deposit just 25%. Balance not due until just 8 weeks before your holiday. Credit cards taken.
Absolutely Fabulous In Every Way!
By Lynne Murphy on 07-Aug-2018
The Villa Rental 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 Rental soon Richard.
Perfect Spot For An Extended Family Adventure
By Tama L on 31-Jul-2018
Footprints Villa Rental 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.
By Deb D on 19-Jul-2018
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 Rental 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 Rental 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.
Sea Front Relaxation
By James C on 01-Jun-2018
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
By Mike S on 31-Oct-2017
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 Rental 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 Rental 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 Rental 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.
Wonderful Stay At Footprints
By Craig W on 08-Sep-2017
Another great 2 week holiday at the Footprints Villa Rental in Viganj. It's been 5 years since we last stayed at the Villa Rental 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.
By Tony D on 03-Sep-2017
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 Rental 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).
Wonderful Stay At Footprints
By Rob L on 28-Aug-2017
We stayed in footprints Villa Rental 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 Rental 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 Rental 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 Rental for lunch. We were two families of four and it catered superbly to everyone's needs.... we didn't want to leave!!!
Peaceful Hideaway With Stunning Views
By Anonymous on 21-Jul-2017
Just back from a lovely weeks stay at Footprints Villa Rental in Verganj. The Villa Rental 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.
Quality Accommodation In An Outstanding Location
By C.G on 07-Jul-2017
We had a wonderful family holiday at Footprints Villa Rental 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.
Beautiful Seafront Villa!
By Jane B on 06-Jul-2017
A beautiful seafront Villa Rental with an amazing view! This location is perfect for all services, restaurants, ferry to Korcula, supermarket and water sports rental. The Villa Rental is well serviced and spotlessly clean! A memorable trip and our family would not hesitate to return!
Wonderful Villa Holiday
By James C on 07-Oct-2016
We had a wonderful holiday at Footprints Villa, set in such a beautiful seaside village. As first timers to Croatia we were really pleased with the property and location. Being keen walkers, seven adults were well served with the stunning areas to explore in the immediate vicinity. The Villa Rental itself is very well appointed with lots of space for all. The kitchen was a great social area with seating as needed whilst we enjoyed cooking together. There are outside dining tables by the pool or on the seafront terrace and also a dining room inside, so plenty of choice. A cold glass of local wine went down well while enjoying the beautiful view from the front patio. We were blessed with warm Autumn sun. Lots of nice touches too, with a big welcome pack we found on arrival and a very helpful local agent. Comfy beds too to rest our weary bones! Made very welcome when we went out to eat, to explore or just for a village wander. A lovely large home to spread out and relax in. Highly recommended.
Stunning Villa And Location
By Martin R on 21-Aug-2016
A beautiful Villa Rental that has been lovingly restored. Much thought has gone into the internal decor making it a real gem. The Villa Rental is only matched by its location right on the sea front in a most magnificent part of Croatia. The local shop and restaurants offer everything one could have wished for and the service provided by the Villa Rental owner was excellent. I would recommend this Villa Rental to anyone who wants to stay in this part of Croatia.
A Gem Of A Place That Is Laid Back
By Carol W on 07-Aug-2016
Hi Richard We had a fabulous time the Villa Rental 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 Regards carol Sent from my iPhone
Amazing Villa, Stunning Location
By John S on 24-Jul-2016
The Villa Rental 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 Rental 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.
Wonderful Location For A Relaxing Holiday
By Clodagh B on 17-Jul-2016
We couldn't have asked for more. Very comfortable, well equipped Villa Rental 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 Rental in its very special location.
Luxurious Spacious Villa On Metres From The Sea
By Alex K on 10-Jul-2016
THE Villa Rental 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 Rental 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!
Lovely Villa Exactly As Described
By Vivien L on 12-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.
By Norren M on 06-Jun-2016
The Villa Rental was beautiful with marvellous facilities. Great kitchen and fab views from bedrooms and large terrace. Sea literally across the road, crystal clear waters and lovely little stone jetties all along the coastal walk. So peaceful and unspoilt. Lots of restaurants and bars closeby with one almost next door for a cold beer sitting right out over the sea. Loved it and would certainly go back to "Footprints" .
So Amazing I'm Returning Again This Summer!
By Laura R on 21-May-2016
The town of Viganj is picture perfect and this has to be the very best Villa Rental 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 Rental 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.
By Louise K on 06-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 Rental 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 Rental 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 Rental to anyone who loves luxury and relaxing in perfect surroundings. Thank you Richard. It was fabulous!
Perfect Chill Out Holiday
By Kim V on 29-Aug-2015
We have just returned (party of 5 couples) from our stay at Footprints Villa. Footprints is situated in the village of Viganj which is still an unspoilt area of Croatia. The Villa Rental itself was perfect for us. Plenty of space for 10 adults and the actual location which is just a few steps away from the sea was absolutely great. Rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and overall a really lovely Villa Rental with all the facilities you need (home from home really). Whilst there, we took a water taxi (20 mins) to the island of Korcula which is mostly catered for tourists. Lovely thought it was, we were so glad that we were spending our week among local people, away from the hustle and bustle of shops and tourists!!. If you want a totally chilled out holiday with good food and drink, then this is the place to visit. We hope to come back to Footprints one day ourselves.
By Susan P on 22-Aug-2015
We just spent an absolutely glorious week at Footprints in Viganj. Two families, 10 of us in total enjoyed all the Villa Rental 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 Rental 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.
Fabulous Villa In A Beautiful Village Location
By Ali 64 on 08-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 Rental 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!!
By Lynne A on 01-Aug-2015
Just back from a weeks stay at this amazing Villa Rental which was one of the best I have ever stayed in and location is perfect. The Villa Rental 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.
5 Stars Out Of 5
By Mats H on 11-Jul-2015
A wonderful house and very nice surroundings. We, a family of 10 people (2 kids 5 and 6years old), had a wonderful stay at the Footprint in july 2015. The accomodation have a very high standard, comparing with Craoatian normal standards (as far as I could see), and the layout of the rooms are great. A very big kitchen and rooms enough for all of us to also have a normal privacy. The house is just a few meters from the clear beautiful ocean where we could take our swims in the mornings. The children, 5 and 6 years old, loved the pool which also we adults used bathed when we were not out and windsurfing or kiteing. We bought food at the grocery store 100 meters away and had some nice dinners out at good restaurants just a five minutes away from the house. Services at the were also good, with a nice lady who popped in a few times to us saw that everything was OK. We can really recommend it and we give it 5 stars out of 5!
By Hampus H, Denmark on 11-Jul-2015
Viganj was the perfect fit for a small children family but also with adults who wanted to kite and windsurf. Situated just a couple of minutes walk away from the main kite beach and the front door just five meters from the sea where you can take a swim in the fantastic crystal clear blue water. The surroundings are very laid back with mostly camping surfers staying here. The downside that comes with it is that it takes three hours by car from Dubrovnik airport to get here. If you have the chance maybe the best option is to take ferry to the small Marco Polo-town Korcula and then the smaller taxi boat over to Viganj. and there are many restaurants within walking distance. Also a small grocery store where we bought fresh baked bread every morning and outside you can buy freshly caught fish. Restaurant Ponta was our favorite spot for both lunch and dinner in Viganj. The house itself met all our expectations and even above. It was very clean and has all the facilities you need, very spacious kitchen and many places where you can eat and hang out (both in front with sea view, and besides the pool in the back). The owner Richard and the manager was from the beginning to the end very helpful.
By Richard L on 05-May-2015
It is very unusual for reality to exceed one's expectation but I think this is the case here .The location is stunning and well worth the drive from Dubrovnik to arrive in such a superb spot . Property is as described and plenty of room for an extended family party for my husband's 60th Birthday . Fani the local agent was very helpful organising a birthday meal and a wine tour /tasting which everyone enjoyed. We also hired bicycles and Kayaks locally .We were pleased we had hired cars as it was a bit before the main holiday season so not all the restaurants were open and the small local ferry to Korcula [which was a lovely day out ] only went at 7am but there were plenty of options from Orebic. The pool warmed up enough for us to use and the sea was refreshing ! We would thoroughly recommend this property.
By SJ on 27-Sep-2014
We've recently enjoyed a fantastic holiday at this exceptional villa, located in a picturesque and delightful sea side village. Footprints Villa Rental was just as described, with very large rooms, all uniquely furnished with quality fittings, and each room boasting a different design style. The kitchen was huge and so well equipped, we couldn't fault the attention to detail. Best of all was of course being on the sea edge with the best view from the equally huge front patio facing across the clear blue sea. Outdoor sofas and a large stone dining table made it the most used space in the endless sunshine we were lucky to enjoy. In the screened and private rear courtyard was a lovely pool and another table for pool side lunches and plenty of sun loungers. The location of the Villa Rental in the small village enabled us not to need cars and the owner sorted really good transfers from the airport for us and thus once there, we just wandered to the beaches or bars and restaurants and there is also a well stocked shop along the way run by the very helpful Ivan! We used taxis (cheap and friendly) to pop out if we wanted to other villages. Fani the local contact at the Villa Rental was ever helpful and her team provided the Villa Rental in a spotless condition and provided the biggest welcome pack we'd ever received on other Villa Rental holidays. We'd all recommend this Villa Rental to any family or large group.
By Guy V on 13-Sep-2014
I took my family out to Footprints last month (8 of us) and had a superb time. This was our first visit to Croatia so we were a little apprehensive. The Drive in the dark from Dubrovnik airport is about an hour and ten minutes on very quiet roads. We loved the Villa Rental and its position about 10 feet from the sea. There is a small esplanade that runs all the way around to the other adjoining towns which is great for cycle trips or even a long walk. Every evening we visited a different restaurant in the village and all of them having a different choice on the menu. We hired a motor boat on one day and visited all of the little islands around Korcula. One day we took the ferry across to the town of Korcula and found a mini Dubrovnik on our doorstep with its steep narrow streets and fascinating history. Its a great place to eat sitting at a table up on the battlements. If you want a village atmosphere with lots of restaurants , not to many tourists and you want a genuine bit of Croatia for a week or two try this place. I promise you that there is plenty to do so you will not get bored but you will feel like you have had a great and refreshing holiday at the end of it. Highly recommended The Vigar Family
Beautiful House In Young Sporty Village
By Chris B on 23-Aug-2014
After our journey from Dubrovnik we were really looking forward to arriving at the Villa Rental and we were not disappointed. A lovely modern house 5 metres from the sea. Lovely rooms all with air conditioning. One of the double rooms is in an annexe next to the pool so probably better for late teens or adults. The pool is very welcome for cooling off and a good size for kids if not for serious swimming. Vinganj is a fantastic village and a car is completely unnecessary with everything you need within 5 minutes walk. Including a small supermarket, ferry to Korcula, private water taxis, boat hire, wind or kite surfing tuition and 7 wonderful restaurants and we tried them all. We visited Korcula 3 times as we really liked the atmosphere of this mini Dubrovnik more than Dubrovnik itself. More restaurants, bars and a nice selection of jewellers and souvenir shops. We will be back but will probably get the ferry from Dubrovnik next time. Fantastic.
