About Lili Gaunt

I live in Croatia, having returned to my family roots after years of living in England and having a busy international career.

I will be happy to share my love of Krk island and local knowledge, making sure you have a wonderful relaxing holiday.

Lili Gaunt purchased this villa in 1995

Why Lili Gaunt chose Krk

After returning back home to Croatia, Krk, a lush green island with the clear blue sea, was the right choice. A run down stone cottage in a little village, bought in 1995, was a challenge and a labour of love. Originally an olive press, it was transformed by the local builders and craftsmen into a spacious family home, loved and visited by both my English and Croatian family and friends.

What makes this villa unique

The island of Krk is a great place for an active holiday, but after a day of swimming, sailing, walking or exploring the old towns and villages along the coast, it is great to come home and relax, have a quiet drink in the garden, smell the lavender, watch the butterflies, enjoy the sunset and the beautiful Mediterranean night sky.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa “Lavanda” exceeded our expectations. Every room was clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen, which is in the historic part of the villa, was very clean and is very well equipped. We used the two bikes for various excursions in the next surroundings. Herbs and trees are planted in the garden of the house. Hopefully we can enjoy a holiday here again.

exclusive location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and lovely location. Very good for the ones who are looking for a secluded location that is still close to all the means of entertainment offered on the island.

The description is accurate. The villa has all the facilities one wants and the owner is more than lovely and helpful!

I would definitely recommend this location to a friend! I hope to be able to go back there one day!

Beautiful, clean and has all the facilities top locations offer!!

Lovely House in a Rural Setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very private, spacious and very well equipped. Lili the owner is an absolutely fantastic hostess and makes you instantly feel that her home is your home. Me, my friends and family have stayed at the villa on three or four occasions over the last few years and have never been disappointed.

You do need a car at this location, but Krk town is only 10mins away so you have the beauty of a very quiet location and being a short drive to the supermarkets, restaurants etc. of the main town and quiet local beach is also about a 10 minute drive

Beautiful island, villa and people! 10/10

rural paradise with the scent of lavender

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful and well maintained house and garden for people who like nature and peaceful holidays. The house is spacious, you won´t step on each other´s toes. You will find everything you need for a wonderful time. Lili, the owner is a lovely lady with a good sense of "british" humor and provides lots of information about the island. We didn´t want to leave and will definately come back.

Casa comoda, molto curata, in zona silenziosa

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato otto giorni in questa casa e ne siamo pienamente soddisfatti. Una villa isolata con un bel giardino. La proprietaria, Lili, è una persona cortese e attenta alle esigenze degli ospiti e questo si vede anche in come ha dotato la casa di tutto quello che serve per un bel soggiorno. L'aspetto più gradevole è stato proprio questo: Lili si è immedesimata nelle esigenze degli ospiti e ha preparato ogni spazio con cura, facendo attenzione ai più piccoli dettagli. Lo abbiamo molto apprezzato. Dalla casa si possono fare delle passeggiate nei campi e il nostro cane lo ha apprezzato molto. La casa è collocata in un posto molto tranquillo perché fuori dai centri abitati più grossi. Il paese di Krk e altre cittadine o i luoghi per fare il bagno richiedono 10 - 15 minuti di auto per essere raggiunte. Le strade sono ottime. Una bella esperienza.
