Getting to the villa involves a bit of a trek up alleys and steps in the old and beautiful town of Vilna. Open the entrance gate and you feel you're in paradise.
The house is a few centuries old and has all the character of age, with all the amenities you could wish for. It is thoughtfully equipped with everything you need.
There's a beautiful shaded outdoor eating area by the barbecue; a garden area behind the house with a trampoline, table tennis, and a playhouse for the kids.
There's even a pet tortoise in the garden my grandson fell in love with.
If you're at all like us you'll spend happy days by the pool, venturing out occasionally for boat trips from the harbour or a lazy drink by the quayside as the sun goes down.
Vilna is a beautiful old town with lots of alleyways to explore and restaurants that serve delicious food. Especially seafood....
The staff in the villa were friendly and helpful and we felt very well looked after.
The one thing you do need to bear in mind is that it's really only a place for the able bodied. You can only park your car ten minutes walk from the property; you have to climb steps and steep paths to get to it; and even more steps once you get there, as its many levels are part of its character and charm.
We were very sad to leave. But hope one day to be returning...
We had the most fantastic time at Villa Vicina! There is everything you can wish for;a playground for the kids, a fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, swimming pool and roof terrace. The house is fantastic and close by to the harbour and restaurants. We all loved our holiday here and the host Ivan gave us great tips what to do in the area as well. Brac is a beautiful island and this house is simply perfekt :)
This FULLY equipped house was in a wonderful location and lacked for nothing. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need to make a wonderful meal. There was more than enough bath towels, beach towels and extra duvets if needed. The garden was wonderful and the ping pong table provided hours of entertainment for the kids.
Ivan, the gentleman who showed us around when we checked in, was full of information on tours and things to do and was easy to reach if we had a question. Would absolutely come back!
What a fantastic villa - both the location and the amenities were superb. We would recommend this to anyone.
Excellent week in a villa,located in the center of town. Villa is well equipped, bigger and more gorgeus in live then on the pictures. All located in the vicinity (restaurants, caffe bars, supermarkets...). We rent a boat there and went to that secluded beach which was really as a small paradise.
Thank you Ivan on all your help and kindness.
