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!

Beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Oliva was everything we hoped it would be. Beautiful restoration of an old house surrounded by mountains with a view of the Adriatic. The location was great for day trips to Split, Dubrovnik, beaches and the Islands. The house and property were clean and well kept. The owners Milan and Vedrana were extremely nice and accommodating. They provided us with lots of good ideas for sight seeing and restaurants. We loved our stay and hope to return in the future.

An amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Villa Oliva. It truly was a dream vacation. Vedrana and Milan were excellent hosts. They have thought of every amenity you should need, and more. The house itself is comfortable, roomy, well-appointed and so clean. We loved the 'outdoor barbeque', the pool, and the outdoor patio in general. Having coffee every morning, overlooking the town of Podgora and islands was amazing. Their recommendations for restaurants and tours were perfect. They really know the area - helped us with taxis, reservations, etc. There are olive trees all around the property from which they make their own olive oil, and a little garden where you can pick tomatoes and peppers in season. You can walk up to the old town center of Podgora easily from the house. Walking into town takes about 20-25 min., and taxis back up are no problem. The town of Podgora is charming, and has lots of restaurants and bars. The beach is not as crowded as Makarska. We loved the 'Ranc' restaurant in Tucepi (town between Podgora and Makarska) - dining under the olive trees. I can't say enough about our whole experience at Villa Oliva. Again, I can't thank Vedrana and Milan enough for all their help and information. They really know how to make a vacation special. I really appreciated their attention to every detail. I would highly recommend this property!
