Beautiful and relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

Last September we had the most wonderful stay at Danijels house. My partner and I travelled with our 70 year old mothers and the house was everything and more than we'd hoped. The description of the property is excellent but the décor, layout and tranquillity far surpassed our hopes. We were met by Danijels parents who showed us around the villa even though we arrived in the early hours of the morning they were so friendly and accommodating we felt welcome immediately. They also met us on our last day and presented us with a gift to remind us of our fabulous week- a very thoughtful and generous touch.

The pool is magnificent and the covered seating area next to it perfect for very hot days. There are two sitting rooms which was useful for our group- we were able to be in different areas of the property but still be sociable! All the bedrooms were a good size and very comfortable and the bathrooms and kitchen were well equipped.

We really enjoyed visiting Gradac for afternoon swims in the sea and ice cream and had two fabulous days out at Split and Dubrovnik, althoughyou need to have a head for heights when driving along some of the costal stretches! I highly recommend this property.

A beautiful, private setting.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lovor is a beautiful, private and peaceful property. There are other properties nearby but the neighbours made our week and gave us much information about the area and it's history. Ivan (Bacina Lakes Stand Up Paddle Boarding) was really helpful, arranging a superb day trip by charter boat to paddle surf off the island of Korcula.

The house was really well equipped and Danijel's parents and the neighbours were on hand for any questions/queries. Air conditioning in the house was a welcome addition.

The outdoor lounge area was great for relaxing during the day and eating at night. We used the pool numerous times every day.

We also paddle surfed at the Bacina Lakes - a beautiful, peaceful spot where you can also swim - just a few minutes drive, park up and jump in.

The nearby coastline and islands are just beautiful and the local cuisine (numerous great value places serving local specialities) is rustic and delicious. Evenings were fuelled with the local 'Posip' wine.

For a relaxing, 'get away from it all' break, we'd recommend staying here any time!

Gorgeous villa, lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

The villa really exceeded our expectations, as did the hospitality of the hosts. The location is remote but beautiful and you're just a short drive away from beaches, supermarkets etc. I would absolutely recommend Villa Lovor.

Super Croatian Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lovor is a lovely Croatian house, private, tranquil and well equipped. Lovely outside areas for relaxing, sunbathing and eating and a perfect pool sheltered by laurel and olive trees. Four good bedrooms (two with their own shower rooms) and plenty of relaxing space elsewhere. A really nice annex room with an open BBQ / fireplace - perfect for grilling local fish for your evening meal. Car is pretty much essential but plenty to do and see in this area of Croatia exactly half way between Split and Dubrovnik. Lots of wonderful local fruit and vegetables on sale from the roadside around the Neretva delta. Ivan next door took us paddle boarding on Bacina lakes five minutes away, well worth it and you can go kiteboarding at Neretva too. Visited Dubrovnik (2 hrs), Split (2 hrs), Mostar (1 1/2 hr) and Kravicé Falls (1 hr) in Bosnia, took the ferry Ploče to Trapanj (1hr) and hired a RIB from Orebić and went waterskiing, swimming round the islands and visited the old town of Korčula - beautiful. One morning of rain but otherwise lovely hot weather around 28-32C for our week. Very attentive owner Danijel who arranged for his parents to meet us late in the evening to show us the villa and Danijel was excellent with communicating over the booking and checking we had all we needed. Must come back here another time!

We were 6 adults aged 23 to 63 all went WOW! upon seeing this wonderful home. After a horrendous car rental experience with Fleet car hire at Split airport, we arrived at the Villa late. But we were greeted by wonderful people, Dan's parents, Friends, neighbours and pets. They made us feel as if we were family. Such lovely people.

A car is a must and roads are excellent. Places to visit include Split old town, Dubrovnich old town (but we would not go back as it was all touristy, expensive, etc..). Bacina lakes, where you "Paddle surf" with Ivan ( check his website). Lots to explore . Mostar old town in Bosnia and the large waterfall in bosnia also worth visiting.

Food is excellent and people are friendly and helpful. Prices are much cheaper than England

We stayed for two weeks, the location is stunning to say the least and sad to leave.

Danijel's parents even came to bid us farewell, so touching.

A wonderful home for a holiday in Croatia.

  • 5 of 5

What a lucky find for our first visit to Croatia. The house is wonderfully cozy. Nice furnishings, immaculately clean, and a nice homey feel. (not as just a place that gets rented).

Since we have four kids all in the young adult phase of life, the many bedrooms were also very very handy. Plus the two top bedrooms have small kitchens which is great for being able to have some coffee in the morning without going down to the kitchen.

The house also has many places to "get away" which can be nice when you're a large group on a long holiday.

There are a number of restaurants up and down the coast, serving everything from pizza to gourmet dining. Even a fairly demanding foodie should be able to find some suitable cuisine.

There are a number of nice beaches in the area, and they are all easily accessible with a bit of walking (you don't get the scenery without stairs).

One highlight of our trip was Kravice Falls in Bosnia. It's about an hour's drive away, but what great fun to have a swim next to such beautiful waterfalls. We went twice. Great fun.

If you want beautiful surroundings in a nice peaceful location, then Villa Lovor will suit you fine. The owners are very good at communicating and will help make your stay a memorable one. Enjoy.
