About the property

First Row Beach Front Villa With Pool And Mediterranean Charm

This lovingly resorted villa has its own large private pool and wonderful views to the Adriatic - just 5 meters away! Located in this quiet beach front village that looks the crystal clear Adriatic, Villa provides four-star accommodation for six - eight persons in an outstanding seafront position.

A sea-view private pool with counter – stream swimming, colourful Mediterranean garden, 2 sea-view terraces, 1 sea-view balcony, 2 sea-view sun decks, unique access to the sea in front of the house, separate BBQ area, garage for your car and sports equipment and a private parking.

Absolutely the most amazing location in Viganj! There is no need for a car, as you can easily walk to this lovely little fishing village's bars and small restaurants, serving local fresh foods, especially sea food. The well stocked shop is just 150 meters away. Different beaches (besides the one in front of the villa) are seconds by foot too. The villa has a jetty in front.

Seafront villa is in the very heart of picturesque Viganj. Utilities, such as shop, grocery, restaurants and harbour are in the very vicinity.

Villa Nelly consists of 3 bedrooms (two of them on the first floor with en-suite bathroom and the third one on the ground floor with 1 extra bathroom), open space with kitchen, dining and lounge area.

The master suite, bedroom, and living room have sea view terraces.

All rooms have a sea view.

All bedrooms have king-size double beds and villa Nelly can accommodate 6 persons or even 8, if two would sleep on the couch in the living room. The couch has dimensions 170 x 130 cm so it is suitable only for children.

Villa is completely air-conditioned.

...pool shower, 2 sun decks, 6 sun loungers, 2 sea-view terraces, 1 pergola shaded sea view terrace, outdoor dining and sitting, BBQ terrace, garage for car and/or sport equipment and 2 private parking places will make your summer holidays dreams come true.

Mediterranean garden will spoil your senses with colourful oleanders, lavender, rosemary, pomegranates, lemons and oranges.

Past and present melt together, and it offers hi-tech and vintage flair.

About Tanja Gutenmorgen

Owners are art-loving people and promote Croatian contemporary art by exhibiting works of established contemporary academic painters.

Their concept is to share their oasis with other families and people who appreciate exclusivity, privacy and first row locations, good books, good food, good wine, gourmet and wine tours, culture tourism, swimming, hiking and excitement through sports!

Tanja Gutenmorgen purchased this villa in 1900

Why Tanja Gutenmorgen chose Viganj

Viganj sits on the azure clear Adriatic sea, 120 km north from the city of Dubrovnik (where the nearest airport is), faces the 'mini Dubrovnik' medieval little town of Korcula, which is easy to reach by the water taxi that leaves just 200m by foot from the Villa.

Viganj is famous for its windsurfing and kite surfing scene, with plenty of opportunity to learn or improve your skills with the various companies that offer tuition.

On the other hand if you like to enjoy more sedate forms of relaxation, the region is famous for its vineyards with tasting tours with wonderful gastronomic surprises!

What makes this villa unique

- Beach front in the first row

- no need for a car

- near cultural attractions

- excellent sports possibilities

- fully serviced (all kind of additional services can be arranged in order for you to really feel the local way of life)

- wonderful pool with sea view terrace

- when doing sports such as surfing and kiting, there is no need to walk - you can start surfing in front of the villa!

Fabulous R & R

  • 5 of 5

Overall our group had a very pleasant & enjoyable stay, the location is in a quiet & senic area, which is what was our most important objective was to achieve, its a fair drive from Dubrovnik airport but well worth it if you plan to stay more than a couple days, everyone we meet were friendly & helpful, highly recommended for some fabulous R & R

Clean and well presented property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Nelly. The property is in a small town by the sea with a local shop down the road and a few restaurants.

The property was excellent and finished to a good standard, with three decent sized rooms (two of which were en-suite) and a good kitchen/living area. The pool and lounge area were fantastic. The immediate area around the property was quite quiet, too.

A car is an must if you want to stay here as there is not much to do nearby on foot (unless you like water sports). There is a good private parking space outside the appartment.

It's good to let the guests know, that you do not necessarily need a car, since 1) quite low cost to have a taxi from Dubrovnik, 2) food store close, 3) some restaurants close, 4) boat taxi option to visit Korcula.

Don't know whether having appropriate wood available for barbecue would be an option.

As there are bikes available, why not also couple of sup-boards.

Just the vacation we needed!

  • 5 of 5

It exactly matched the vacation we needed (on the sea, comfortable, everything nearby, no car, beautiful environment, nice people and great food). We felt welcomed and everyone we met in Croatia seemed happy to share a bit of their country/culture with us.

The villa is really beautiful; I would only remove TV’s in the rooms since they were unnecessary & spoiled the integrity of the decoration. And I suggest you talk with the host and let her know that there is no need to press the guests on the way out 1-2 hours prior to departure time.

Croatia/Adriatic is the spot for vacation in Europe; it combines great weather, warm sea, delicious food, great people and rich history.

The Villa was perfect

  • 5 of 5

and Croatia is beautiful country with friendly and helpful locals. We enjoyed in great views from our Villa. I loved the fact that villa had a ground floor bedroom for my mother and that all bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms.

I missed larger coffee mugs, instructions for the TV and a microwave but I'm being really really picky.

Apart from the confusion as to our expected arrival, our host Kate looked after us really well.

Our holiday in September month was great

  • 5 of 5

The location of the villa was superb and the booking process was easy and uncomplicated. Price performance and the organization of Adriatic Pearls were perfect (thumbs up for sending us the list of best restaurants in Viganj and Korcula) and you really get what you expect and see on the pictures.

We enjoyed in a great company, delicious local food (great restaurant in the vicinity of the villa) and sunny weather. Viganj is a good starting point for trips to Korcula, Loviste and Orebic.

The only thing I missed was mixer and better lightening in the living room and kitchen. It would also be great if you add a few more channels on the TV, since the most of them were Arabic, which was a little bit weird.

Owner's Response: Dear Anja, thank you for your nice comments. We are glad that you loved your stay in Villa Nelly and that you enjoyed in exploring hidden bays of Viganj, charming Korcula town which is just 15 minutes of taxi boat ride away and surrounding places. I am glad that my experiences of the local restaurants we have recommended managed to thrill you as well :) It is wonderful to see our guest returning home with such great memories! Thank you also for your suggestions, we will make sure that we add more channels on TV and provide even better lightening in the villa. Regarding the mixer, it is a pity that you didn’t tell us right away that you need it, since your host would organize it for you. Hope our roads will cross sometime in the future again. All the best, Adriatic Pearls Team

Villa Nelly is a beach front villa only 5m from the sea. You just need to cross the little local road to reach the beautiful pebble beach and refresh yourself in a turquoise clear water - or start surfing directly at the doorsteps of the villa!

Just a short walk away (5 minutes) is a main beach named Punta, from where you can launch your kite, enjoy the beach, drink a cocktail at the beach bar or just listen to a relaxing chill-out music.

There are other little beaches all along the waterfront, so you won't see crowded beaches in Viganj.

The centre of Viganj village is a 1 min. walk from Villa Nelly, where you can find ATM and a little supermarket.

Orebic town, where the doctors are is a 15 min. drive. Korcula Island is a 15 min. ferry ride from Viganj. Korcula Island has a charming medieval Venetian town, also named »little Dubrovnik« because of the resemblance of the Dubrovnik town, one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Europe - Croatia. It is a must see once in Viganj!

Loviste village in a beautiful quiet bay is a 15 min drive over Mount Iliya from Viganj and there you can find one of the finest local restaurants »Barca« (sorry guys, the owner is not a Barca fan, the resemblance is only a coincidence, famous for its delicious sea specialties and home grown eco-vegetables!

There are many vineyards along the Peljesac Peninsula and the area also offers sailing, mountain walking, climbing to the Mountain St. Iliya, biking, kite-surfing, windsurfing and fishing. The protected waters (a pretty wide channel between Peninsula and Korcula island) are very popular for sailing.

You can hike (3-4 h walk) to the top of Mount Saint Iliya (961m) that provides wonderful views across the Peninsula and Korcula Island – but do take your trekking shoes with you!
