About the property

Villas in Viganj, Peljesac Peninsular, Dalmatia, Croatia - Private Location, 15 Mins Walk to the Sea

Combining great charm and character with modern convenience the sympathetic restoration of these two Villas provides the perfect getaway for large groups or families. They are situated in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of Croatia with breathtaking views across the large terrace of the Adriatic and the historic town of Korcula. A short walk takes you to the crystal waters of the sea and the bars and restaurants of Viganj where you can sample some of the delicious local cuisine.

The Villas provide a unique and private setting for you to make the most of your stay in Croatia, where you can relax and unwind on one of the large terraces, but also still be close enough to stroll into the village to make the most of the local attractions.

Those interested in wine ( and who isn't?!) will find wonderful local vineyards and the more energetic will be able to enjoy the excellent water activities the area is famous for. There is even the walk up Mt Ilia which starts near to the Villas and will give the adventurous a stunning reward with the view at the top as well as a different experience of what Croatia has to offer.

Unusually, as they are two adjoining Villas which are only rented out together, these properties provide highly flexible holiday accommodation where large groups benefit from two kitchens, two separate lounges as well as being able to enjoy the communal outside where you can socialise late into the night!

About Bruce

Hi, I'm Bruce and I moved to Croatia in 2004 to renovate these two villas from stone ruins to the properties they are today. I spent 3 very eventful years living in Viganj with some very good times!

Although unfortunately I've had to rejoin the rat race I love going back and catching up with friends and seeing how the area is slowly changing while still retaining its wonderful character and beautiful nature. I now live in London with my girlfriend and two young children and love returning with the family to enjoy everything Croatia has to offer!

Bruce purchased this villa in 2003

Why Bruce chose Viganj

I travelled extensively in Croatia looking for the best combination of climate, activities and peaceful beauty. Old stone houses are very difficult to buy and I was very lucky to get these two in a unique position, private but close to the sea and amenities.

What makes this villa unique

Many of the locals tell me that I have one of the best views in the area, and I am constantly improving the properties as permissions and land become available. The properties are away from the crowds but only a short walk to the hustle and bustle of the sea front. Also unlike many big villas which cater for large parties having two attached villas enable groups or families travelling together to have some privacy while still enjoying socialising on the large terrace.

Superb Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I can't explain how great the view is from the swimming pool - you have to see it to believe it. Each morning I would grab myself a coffee and sit outside to admire the view before the rest of the family were up and about.

The great thing about this place is that you can go with an extended family or another family of friends and whilst some areas are shared, you also get your own villa and your own privacy.

Both villas are presented to a high spec and in fact the photos do not do the villas justice.

Everything was perfect for us - the accommodation, the swimming pool, the view, the weather, the restaurants, the people, the care and attention from the owner.

We will definitely be going back - I need to take some more windsurfing lessons!

We had a fantastic time at this Villa and Croatia is the most wonderful of countries. We had 3 generations (10 people) on holiday and we all enjoyed the lovely terrace and amazing views - our highlight was switching off the pool lights and watching shooting stars with wine glass in hand!

We had both villas so plenty of room and two kitchens made a real difference when you have little ones and some who don't appreciate that early morning experience! All well equipped and the BBQ is the biggest I've seen, the peace and quiet was amazing and we really relaxed.

The local area is lovely but we also discovered Loviste which became a family favourite, as well as Ciringitos on the beach for cocktails. All in all a great success and we would have loved to stay longer.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Pacobel and Karena. It is in a stunning location and the pictures don't do it justice! We went as two families and it was great to have two separate houses ( and two kitchens!) while being able to share the lovely terrace and pool area. Having the pool close meant we were able to supervise the children and relax, while enjoying all the facilities of the houses, big barbecue, and of course that fantastic view. We were quite surprised with how much there was to do in the area and the kids loved trying the water sports...we'll be back!

Nearest Ferry
6 Kilometres
Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

The local area provides lots of opportunities for wine tasting, walking and sports in particular water based activities. There is some notable history with deserted villages in the hills and the local fauna and flora is very diverse with some amazing flowers and plants throughout the year. Viganj is a venue for the European Windsurfing championships and there is plenty of opportunity for water sports including kitesurfing, diving, canoeing and wakeboarding/ waterskiing.


The sea is about 15 minutes walk away. The water is crystal clear and very safe for bathing as there is very little tidal flow and the sea is generally calm.


The nearest airport is Dubrovnik which is approx. 2 hours away. Split is 3 hours drive. Car hire at the airport is highly recommended as the surroundings are wonderful for exploring.


The nearest restaurants and bars are in Viganj a pleasant 10-15 minute walk along quiet country lanes. A local ferry runs to Korcula only a short walk from the Villas where further ferries can be caught to the island national park of Miljet and the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Viganj has several neighbouring villages which offer a range of restaurants and bars that all serve delicious local produce and fish caught on the day, together with excellent local wine.

Further Details:

Orebic 7km drive, is the nearest main town with banks (cash machines) supermarkets etc. The area is a mecca for sports including kite and windsurfing, diving, watersports, mountain biking.
