About the property

3 bedroom, 600 m2 private garden area, antic Venetian and Roman wall

Do you want to enjoy a lovely family villa in ancient city of Osor, the anti-stress oasis of the islands Cres and Lošinj, one of the most beautiful parts of Adriatic Sea in Croatia?

Then visit Villa Antiqua!

The villa has the surface area of approximately 130 m2 and 600 m2 of garden area. An antic wall from Venetian era (height of about 3,5 m) forms the eastern boundary courtyard and is a part of city walls, while the southern border is an antic wall from Roman era which is also a part of city walls. With regard to the walls, vegetation and its location, the property offers a great privacy. You can enjoy the shade of the old pine trees, watch the bay and the sail boats just few meters away, or you can just walk to the beach which is only 250 meters away.

The villa consists of fully equiped kitchen, living/dining room, bedroom, hallway and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms, bathroom and hallway upstairs. The villa is equipped with wood furnace, SAT TV, DVD player, Radio with cd and mp3 player, ice maker machine, espresso machine and air conditioning in all rooms. The villa is right across the small marina where you can place your sailboats and bigger powerboats. The villa is accessible by car or boat.

If you like to hike there is the mountain Osorčica with the highest peak of 588 meters. Osor also offers you the possibility to hunt wild boar, deers, woodcock and wild pigeons.

Interesting thing about hunting ground is that there isn't closed season for wild boar through the year.

Interesting fact is that once the islands Cres and Lošinj were actually one island named Lošinj, before Osor channel was dug. Nowdays Osor lies at channel that separates islands Cres and Lošinj. Islands are connected with a rotating bridge. The channel was build by Romans to make sailing possible through the channel. Osor is an open-air museum where you can find ancient town square surrounded by beautiful buildings from XV and XVI centuries, Bishop's palace, cathedral and bell tower from the early Christian era. Through the town you can encounter many sculptures left behind by the great croatian artist Ivan Meštrović. During the summer months the town becomes open-air stage for Osor Musical Event, which has been held every year in the summer since 1976.

Beautiful nature and peaceful environment are granted all the time...

A very nice place for hiking and hang around

  • 4 of 5

The garden is beautiful and the house is an antique villa. All you need you will find. For cooking there are enough dishes for about 8 Persons. A TV-Set if somenone likes to do so, and look German, Austrian or other country TV. Also a Stereoset prepared for Iphone and Radio. The technical equipment was not on the highest level, but it works very well.

The small village called Osor is a really old village and have its foundation time back ago to the 12th Century.

A short remark to the landlord: He is a really courteaus and helpful friendly person.

I can recoomend this property to everyone who wants to stay in a placid countryside. For the personal use, you will be wellcomed.

Owner's Response: Dear Andreas, thank you for your kind words. My aim is for my guests to be given a warm welcome and to feel totally relaxed and comfortable during their stay in Villa Antiqua. Also, I want to thank you for leaving the house so tidy. You, your family and your cute dogs are always welcomed to visit us at Villa Antiqua in the future. I have to correct the information related to the age of ancient city of Osor. The foundations of the city walls reveal an ancient history, which can be traced back to a prehistoric era – IX century BC. Kind regards, Ivica Bulat

Wonderful house and garden in beautiful surroundin

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 10 days in Villa Antiqua, enjoying the house but also very much the garden in beautiful croatian surroundings. The house was squeaky clean upon our arrival, and we were greeted by a friendly host who did everything to make our stay a real pleasure. I warmly recommend!

Marvellous stay at Villa Antiqua

  • 5 of 5

We, 3 adults and one child, spent some wonderful days at Villa Antiqua. The house is in good shape, very clean and extremely well equipped. Ivica welcomed us although we arrived late and furnished us will all relevant information. The garden with the old trees is an oasis. The property is only 2 minutes walk away from the most lovely town square of Osor. And it is the perfect starting point to discover the Islands of Cres and Losinj with its incredibly lovely beaches and villages. We appreciated our stay very much and would like to come back again.

Wonderful stay in Osor

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is very well located in the middle of two islands so you can visit both Cres and Lošinj. House is amazing, it has everything what we needed, the kitchen is fully equipped and clean. Garden is very big, perfect for relaxation in the shades with a good book.

Ivica, see you next year.
