Footprints Villa is a large detached 5 bedroom 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. Booking deposit 25%, fully refundable in regard Covid - 19 - see my website for T&C's.

Fully restored, this 19th century former sea captains residence enjoys stunning south-westerly facing sea views and beyond to the island of Korcula.

The 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 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 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 (I can advise about flights and book luxury transfers for you.

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 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 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 25%. Balance not due until just 8 weeks before your holiday. Credit cards taken. Cancellation - if the UK FCO advises against all but essential travel on your arrival date, you will get a full refund on that date, or you can move your holiday.

Perfect for a family or group stay

P wrote on Google:: Date of stay: 30th July - 6th August 2022 ​ This beautifully renovated and presented old "Captain''s House" is perfect for a family or group stay. Ideally located right on the seafront, it has a bakery, small supermarket and wine store within a few hundred meters, and is only a short 8km trip from big supermarkets at Orebić if you need more (and the villa has off-street parking if you have your own vehicle). The villa is well-equipped for self-catering, or you can take advantage of the many nearby restaurants and bars. Multiple outdoor areas at the front and rear of the villa ensure that you always have somewhere outside to sit or dine even if the wind is blowing, and a huge central kitchen island bench and separate dining room provide indoor alternatives if you must. If you don''t want to swim in the Adriatic just across the road, the pool in the rear courtyard is a delight, with good privacy when swimming or relaxing on the sun loungers, and a double bedroom and separate bathroom with direct access off of the pool deck. A pool maintenance man services the pool at least every second day, early in the morning. He comes and goes through a service door before 7am so as not to disturb guests. The villa is air-conditioned throughout and has UK satellite TV and fast broadband with wifi to stay in touch with the world. Best of all are the friendly host Richard, and his local manager Fani, who were extremely helpful with arranging transfers to and from Dubrovnik, local car services, water taxis, and generally advising on the local area. Definitely recommended.
