Overview

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

stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is nestled amongst other old rustic buildings and has panoramic views of the beautiful coastline and marina. The villa is well equipped and designed to a high standard. We loved the open plan kitchen/lounge area and really enjoyed alfresco dining by the pool.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and artistic home to stay in during your vacation. If you are looking for a beautiful, home-like, representation of the Croatian culture, this is your place. The ambiance of the home, paired with the spectacular views towards the sea and islands make this place a real jem. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a taste of an authentic Croatian hospitality and culture. We will be back soon.

Lovely villa with amazing sea views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks at the villa with family of 4 adults and 1 child. The villa is really well equipped and beautifully designed inside and out. The bathrooms are extremely well presented. The pool and outside spaces are well maintained and the sea and mountain views from the roof terrace are spectacular. We spent every evening up there to take in the beautiful sunsets. It was extremely hot during our visit and although the house has air conditioning, there is none in the bedrooms which made nights rather hot especially in the master suite. Otherwise we had a very enjoyable stay in the villa and would highly recommend it.

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!
