Umag in Istria

This picture-perfect stone cottage, built in a typical Istrian style, tops every preconception of beautiful holiday accommodation. Located in the town Umag on the north western coast of Istria, you’ll be able to spend hours relaxing on the sun terrace, cool off in the spacious pool or go for a wonderful stroll over to the small harbour. The house itself offers space for up to 6 people and the fireplace will make for plenty of romantic moments. If you’d rather enjoy being together outside, then you can make yourselves cosy by candlelight on one of the loungers by the pool.

Trsteno near Dubrovnik

The small, picturesque villa named Trsteno will get any holidaymaker’s heart racing, especially when you’re staying at the cute Villa Sea Paradise. As if the location directly by the Adriatic Sea wasn’t amazing enough, the villa provides a heavenly pool with a view of the sea surrounded by charming gardens. The elegant interior design of the 250m² villa leaves nothing to be desired – three bedrooms with two balconies, two bathrooms (one of them with a Jacuzzi!) and a huge, cosy living room with a view of the sea. Yes, even when you’re just having breakfast you’ll be looking at the sea – what more could you want?

Lopud in the Elaphite Islands

Have you ever spent a holiday in Dubrovnik’s stunning front garden? We’re talking about the stunning Elaphite Islands of course, a delightful archipelago north-west of Dubrovnik. It’s right here – on the idyllic island of Lopud to be more precise – where you’ll find this unique villa that’s unparalleled across the country. From the outside it looks like the ruins of an old castle, standing alone on a hill surrounded by fragrant cypress and olive tree groves. Once you enter this stone house from the 15th century, you’ll won’t believe how both old and new could ever harmonise so well. This is luxury in the most unique and most beautiful sense. The pictures speak for themselves.

Bobvisca on Brac

The next luxurious residence that I want to introduce to you is a dream in blue, located on the popular island of Brac off the Golden Horn. By blue I don’t just mean the blue sea in the Bay of Babovisca, but more the spectacular infinity pool with its bright blue waters that seem to merge gently into the azure sea. Thanks to the marvellous location of the elegant residence, you’ll have breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and the sunny bay from almost every room – it’s only a few steps to get there too! You’re best looking at the villa for yourself, because I can’t even put into words how much I love this place…

Sveta Jelena in Kvarner Bay

You know that feeling where all you want to do is just get away from any kind of hectic place? Going on holiday amidst idyllic landscapes, escaping much of the outside world and simply relaxing to your heart’s content – is that what you’re craving right now? Then Villa Tramontana, located in the picturesque coastal town of Sveta Jelena, will fit the bill perfectly. Enjoy a carefree holiday at Kvarner Bay, just a few kilometres away from the popular seaside resort of Poatija, and simply live the good life at this charming and very uniquely styled holiday home! The views of the surrounding green landscapes and the island of Krk themselves will be enough to put a smile on your face.
