A perfect getaway in a tranquil Croatian paradise!

  • 5 of 5

When we read the reviews for this villa before booking we almost thought it sounded too good to be true but our week at the villa completely exceeded all our expectations!

Magda & Alan provided us with the warmest welcome despite us a arriving very late in the evening & had stocked up the fridge with the essentials to refuel after our long journey.

The villa is in a beautiful remote setting up in the hills, a short drive from the main town of Podgora (car hire is needed). The peaceful setting with surrounding fruit trees and spectacular views of the sea made it a wonderfully relaxing stay. Magda and Alan let us know we could pick fruits from the trees which we would have gladly done but Alan's cousin beat us too it and came and offered us a bowl of figs he had just freshly picked - delicious!!

The villa is well equiped, we had some lovely dinners at the villa with the boys getting stuck into the outdoor brick oven. We also ate at Magda & Alan's restaurant twice because it was so lovely - fantastic food & service by the water. They were always so helpful with recommendations for what do in the area but also for our next stop in Dubrovnik.

Overall, the villa exceeded our expectations, in part due to our fantastic hosts Magda & Alan. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here to my family & friends and very much hope we can go back on day!

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Roko. Magda and Alen were perfect hosts and could not have been more helpful. We ate many times at their restaurant on the beachfront, the food was lovely and they have excellent staff who are friendly and very knowledgable of the local area. The Villa is beautiful. Decorated to a high specification, clean and crisp. Stunning views of both the sea and the mountains behind. We visited both Dubrovnik and Split, a drive away but worth it. We also had a very enjoyable boat trip to a couple of the nearby islands.

Magda and Alen are lovely people and I would recommend this Villa to friends and family.

Croatia is beautiful. We had a great holiday.

Thank you

A superbly appointed villa in a quiet rural location, finished to a nice standard - well done Magda and Alan.

Had a great time just relaxing with the family. Would defiantly recommend for either a quiet getaway and or a base to explore the area.

Pure Paradise in Croatia!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the previous posts! Magda and Alen were wonderful hosts! So many thoughtful details, from wine and milk in the refrigerator, fresh bread, to helping plan some sight seeing and a boat trip. The villa is beautiful and spotless! We loved their Roko restaurant, as well! Fabulous food! The views from the villa are breathtaking! This is a great location to visit southern Croatia, with day trips to Split, Dubrovnik, Krka National Park/waterfalls, Makarska. My only complaint is that we needed more time here!

Wonderful villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 5 days at the wonderful Villa Roko. The location is amazing with breathtaking views to the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. The house is very clean, spacious and very tastefully furnished. We spent much time in the pool and eating at outside. The town of Podgora is a 10 minute drive and from there you can hire boats to explore the coastline. Split is an hour away and well worth a visit and Trogir is a real gem and just half an hour from Split. We loved Croatia and would recommend the house and the country to our friends.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Magda and Alan were perfect hosts during our stay at their superbly finished villa. On arrival the fridge was stocked with lots of water, milk and even some wine. The house was presented in a very clean state. We collected the key from their restaurant in the port and were shown around the villa. Towels are provided for showering and sitting by the pool. The pool experiences sun all day right through until the sun goes down. All the facilities are quite new finished to a nice standard.

We would recommend having a hire car for this villa as the supermarkets are around a 15 min drive away. If you are feeling adventurous you can walk the old footpaths down to the port and beach but it is very steep and you would not be able to do with children or buggies. We managed to walk back up once but the other couple of times we had a meal in Magda and Alan's restaurant "Roko" and she was kind enough to drive us back to the villa.

The port/beach area is packed with bars, restaurants and has a nice feel to it. The food is lovely with loads of fresh fish. Roko has a very extensive menu and all the food we tried there was excellent. If you are going to the beach take some rubber beach shoes as it is quite stoney but the sea is amazing and clean and clear.

We went to the Krka national park one day (Around 1.5hrs drive) and it was stunning being able to swim in the waterfalls. If you decide to drive to Dubrovnik make sure you take your passport as you have to drive though a small coastal section of Bosnia.

All in all we had a great time and were made to feel very welcome.

Thank you and good luck for the future.
