Lovely villa in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This villa has been immaculately updated and is the perfect peaceful retreat with the most fabulous views of both the sea and the mountains. It's just a short drive to the many beautiful coastal villages with a good selection of restaurants but is far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Nera, the owner, could not have been more helpful, both is correspondence in the run up to our stay and during the stay itself. I would strongly recommend staying here if you want to enjoy the beautiful Dalmatian coast.

What an absolute gem. Some people might be put off by the thought of having to drive for an hour from Split airport. Don't be. This place is worth it. To make myself understood, the House Olivia is not a slice of heaven, it is what is left over when the slice has been removed. Peace and tranquillity with stunning views are hard to come by and this place has it all in abundance. A great location within Croatia from which to explore the country around and a perfect place to lay back and relax, either in the pool or on a sun longer. I loved sitting outside for breakfast each morning and also at night, just looking up at the night sky with the benefit of reduced light pollution.

I cannot think of enough superlatives to use for the House Olivia. I was totally surprised by the welcoming gifts on the table and in the fridge and was equally surprised by the little present handed to my wife when we left. It's the little touches that you remember and my wife and I would certainly look to return here one day.

Many thanks to Marijo and Nera.

Great villa for a family of 4 with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was short but it was well worth it! We came by car from Dubrovnik using the excellent new A1 motorway (tolls to pay but worth the money). Marijo was waiting for us at our prearranged meet up and took us to the house.

The house is clean and very well equipped, and with air conditioning units so quiet we could leave them on all night without being disturbed. Our stay coincided with a heatwave so they were needed!

Our twin boys were in the swimming pool by 8am every morning and they adored it. The villa is not overlooked directly, and has olive groves stretching away into the distance in front, so we didn't feel we had to "keep them quiet". We enjoyed watching the swallows who came down to drink from the pool during the day, and the bats who drank at night. The perfume of lavender and rosemary in the hot air while you eat breakfast outside is heavenly.

In summary: a beautiful house in a peaceful location which requires a car to access, and which we would go back to.

Charming retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing week here with our two children, having spent a busy week on one of the islands with a large family group it was just what we needed; a peaceful location in this very well equipped villa full of charm but with every facility required such as airconditioning and wifi, the attention to detail was wonderful. Our hosts Marijo and Nera were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. I would have no reservation recommending this beautiful villa with its dramatic backdrop and hope to return here in the near future.

Beautifully equipped villa in outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week with our two teenage daughters at Villa Olivia. The villa itself was extremely well equipped considering its size with all the amenities you could wish for (air conditioning, wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, washing-machine, etc). The garden was a bonus with lovely views towards the mountains and the sea.

It's in a great location, away from the hustle and bustle, but only a short drive away from shops, restaurants, beaches and towns. We ate out at the local restaurant, Konoba Biston in Bast, three times (the only one you could walk to) where the food was excellent, very reasonably priced and the waiters very friendly and helpful.

Marijo and Nera were wonderful hosts, offering lots of useful suggestions as to day trips, etc. They also provided a welcome pack with all the necessities for your first day (including a bottle of home-made cherry brandy!).

We would recommend visiting both Baska Voda and Makarska on the riviera - both very attractive small resort towns. We also rented a boat for a day (600 Kn) stopping at a deserted cove for a swim in the clearest water and the island of Brac for lunch which was a delightful experience.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Villa Olivia and look forward to returning again sometime.

A fabulous and tranquil family retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in House Olivia, the pool delighted our two young boys and the terrace and amazing panorama made it instantly relaxing. It is a very peaceful place with quality throughout which really reflected Mario's helpfulness and attention to detail. The internet access was great for when our boys had tired themselves out in the pool and the surrounding wild life also entertained. We enjoyed visiting local towns and villages with the beach at Brela a favourite. Also the swift connection to the A1 via the tunnel meant a day trip to Split was very easy. Highly recommended by all of the family.
