An excellent extremely comfortable, well equipped private villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We have been on villa holidays for the last 12 years and Villa Oliva is by far the best villa in which we have ever stayed. The villa has everything, is extremely quiet and private, in a stunning location with wonderful views. It is really stylishly decorated and well equipped and a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into making it so homely and comfortable. Vedrana and Milan are excellent hosts and went above and beyond what we would normally expect to ensure that we had everything we needed and that we had a wonderful holiday.The pool is a lovely size and is well maintained and clean and sits in front of the villa which is set amongst olive groves. The town of Podgora itself is lovely with plenty of good restaurants and a few really pleasant cocktail bars. We ate out most nights on our two week stay and every meal we had was of a high standard ( our top recommendations being Roko, Nolto Bene and Konobo Klemic. ) Vedrana and Milan kindly recommended a taxi driver who we used each night to take us down into the town and bring us back and he was very reliable. We had a really wonderful holiday and hope to return to Villa Oliva and Podgora one day. We highly recommend this villa and would like to express our thanks to Vedrana and Milan for their hospitality.

Beautiful villa, the owners have thought of all the small details. Suberb quality.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa - probably the best we have stayed in in over 10yrs of booking villas independently. The correspondence with the owners before we arrived was prompt & detailed so felt v straightforward.

The villa itself is beautiful, newly finished with some lovely contemporary features including a bbq/smokehouse, outdoor speakers on the patio and jet current in the pool. It all feels so nicely finished & thought through it was easy to instantly relax. Its slightly higher up the mountain than we expected but the pay off was the absolutely stunning sunsets and absolute peace & quiet.

Its a very quick drive down to Podgora, or there is a path which takes you straight to the beach- its pretty direct but very steep so definitely more of a hike than an amble!

The pool and grounds around the villa are stunning, surrounded by olive & fig trees and secluded patios to watch the sunset.

The owners were fabulous. We were told to help ourselves to the tomatoes, melons and carrots from.the vegetable garden & the figs from the trees. With a plethora of companies to choose from in Podgora harbour it was lovely to be able to text them to arrange a boat trip and skipper for us, with a recommended itinerary.

I really cant recommend this villa enough - absolutely idylic in a stunning part of Croatia.

Beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

With a superb attention to detail, the owners have created a comfortable and immaculate home, with generous and well lit rooms, excellent bathrooms and a well fitted kitchen. The pool and grounds afford jaw dropping views and this tranquil spot, 5 mins drive from the beach, enjoys gorgeous sunsets. All washed down by the owners' delicious home made brandies. It is difficult to find fault with this place, and the owners are so keen to ensure the stay is a memorable one. The best villa we have ever stayed in, one which would work equally well for couples or families.

Fabulous home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Milan and Vedrana gave us a warm welcome despite the lateness of our arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. The house is comfortable and worked well for our group. We were 7 adults and one child. The pool area is great as is everything about the villa. We loved the communal seating area inside the house. The house is set alone which is great if you have a large party as you don't feel your ' upsetting the neighbours' , but close enough to Podgora itself if you fancy a day by the beach. Podgora itself is charming. I would definitely recommend the villa.

A beautifully equipped villa with the most stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This was a very special family reunion and it did not disappoint. Milan and Vedrana were the most welcoming and attentive hosts and nothing was too much trouble to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

The villa is very special to Milan and Vedrana having been in their family a long time and this is reflected inthe quality of the fixtures and fittings. We were a family of 7 and it just swallowed us up. The pool was brilliant and the garden spacious and safe for the children

Watching the sun go down over the sea, visiting little coves and just chilling. You will not be disappointed in Villa Oliva or Croatia. I hope we shall return.

Thank you so much for everything Milan and Vedrana

A superb location with wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful destination for our first trip to Croatia! We chose the house due to its location between Split and Dubrovnik, but had no idea it was such a find till we stayed. Despite the Bora wind blowing for some of our stay, this didn't dampen our spirits at all. Milan and Vedrana were wonderful hosts and helped us to hire a car for our unforgettable day trip to Mostar, as well as directing us towards local restaurants and supermarkets. We went on several walks from the house in the peaceful countryside surrounded by olive groves; it's hard to believe the turbulent history of the area when such peace is so abundant. The sunsets were over the sea were truly spectacular watched from the terrace with a glass of wine; we even spotted a couple of shooting stars after dark. Watching the storm from this location was just as impressive with the lightening lighting up the expanse of sea. The house was warm and cosy with a fireplace and heating in the bathrooms, bedrooms and lounge and the outside area was enjoyed throughout our stay. A real find and we're already planning our next visit without the kids!
