About the property

Villa , pool , 3 bedrooms , airconditioned , sea , Podgora, Makarska ,Croatia

100 year old recently renovated villa with pool with stunning panoramic views.

The villa was chosen by British 'Sunday Times' to be amongst 100 most beautiful in Europe. Published in 'Design & Arhitecture'. The Villa Jan which dates from the 1890s, is an ideal location that offers magnificent view of the sea and amazing sunsets. It is located inside the old upper Podgora village but at the same time it is totally secluded, thus guaranteeing absolute privacy to its visitors. This Villa has been designed aiming to offer the ideal accommodation solution to people who set high standards with respect to their vacations, people who wish to combine relaxation at an idyllic spot with adventure as well as comfort with luxury. It is definitely not for those who seek to enjoy the intensity of night life, to mingle in the noisy swarm of tourists and to visit luxurious shops, and night clubs . This Villa will take you on a journey to discover the unspoiled Dalmatian landscape, to discover enchanting secluded beaches, to get to know its people and to charge your batteries and to find relaxation and serenity in nature The architects used dominant design elements such as-stone, wood and iron, strong and dynamic materials that have given a distinctive aspect and character to the building allowing for an exceptional architectural design,-- the light that gives an outdoor aspect inside the house through spectacular openings and offers magnificent view of the pool, the garden and the sea; the sound of the water creates a sensation of serenity and relaxation by itself; at the same time, it offers continuity in the view of the sea and the horizon.-- Together with the terrace with stunning view of islands Bra, Hvar and Pelješac; the veranda, the patio and the pool, the Villa has something from the aura of a Roman mansion that stands still in absolute harmony. Behind the property, is the 8m x 3m swimming pool with roman steps,shower and sunbeds; at one end is wooden decking with outdoor chairs and steps that go up to an upper terrace with panoramic views, at the other end is another terrace with a barbecue plus dining table and chairs for outdoor dining in the most idyllic

Idyllic, relaxing and a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxed holiday ever with a nice mix of trips out and chilling by the pool. The villa had everything we needed and was lovely and spacious even with the six of us (four adults, two kids). The outdoor areas were great for sunshine or shade, but sun set champagne and scrabble on the top terrace area was my favorite! Unfortunately our week was not long enough - too much to see and do and wanted to spend longer relaxing at the villa.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

An ideal villa for our family holiday. The villa was really exceeding our expectations at all standpoints .Bedrooms were all beautifully presented, bathrooms great, lounge room spacious and cool. Fully equipped with dishwasher, fridge, and laundry plus quality linen and plenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware. The pool was well maintained, as were the gardens, terrace and outdoor patio areas. It was a unforgettable week in Dalmatia, a lovely villa with relaxing pool and beautiful views, we have enjoyed the peace, the quiet and the tranquility. It has been a truly wonderful and relaxing. We loved our stay here. Highly recommended!

Stylish

  • 5 of 5

You cannot fail to be bowled over by the breathtaking view on arrival at 100 year villa. Situated in the hill outside Podgora village you can see the beautiful Croatian sea and islands for miles. The villa itself is spacious and achingly stylish with all the amenities you could wish for. It was hot in early June and it was a joy to sunbathe and swim in the beautiful pool then explore all the delights of Podgora and surrounding villages, later in the day when it cooled down a bit. The barbecue area was also a hit when we felt like staying in. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, it is just gorgeous!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Where can I possibly begin to describe this amazing little haven in Podgora, that they call 100 year old villa, nestled comfortably with breathtaking views We were at 100 year old villa for one week and it was absolutely amazing! Beautiful beautiful beautiful! So peaceful, so comfortable, and there's nothing more that you could possibly want while you are there. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend on the property, because we took alot of day trips.

Our week in 100 year old villa was one that we will never forget and I came away with a very special feeling and love for Croatia. The Best!
