Then visit Villa Antiqua! The villa has the surface area of approximately 130 m2 and 660 m2 of garden area with heated swimming pool and Hot Tub.

With regard to the walls, vegetation and its location, the property offers a great privacy. You can enjoy the shade of the old pine trees, watch the bay and the sail boats just few meters away, or you can just walk to the beach which is only 250 meters away. The renovated villa provides 130m² of living space and can accommodate seven people. The villa consists of a kitchen, living room, bedroom, hallway and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms, a bathroom and a hallway on the upper floor. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a hob, oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, coffee machine and ice maker machine. The living room has a dining and a sitting area. Wood for the fireplace is provided free of charge. The first bedroom has a king's size bed (160 x 200cm). The second bedroom has king's size bed (160 x 200cm). The third has double bed (180x200cm), sofa bed for 2 persons (160x200cm) and extra bed. In addition, a cot is also available. The two modern bathrooms have a shower and toilet. All the rooms in the villa can be heated and air conditioned. There is a free wireless high speed internet connection. If you like to hike there is the mountain Osorčica with the highest peak of 588 meters. Osor also offers you the possibility to hunt wild boar, deers, woodcock and wild pigeons. Interesting thing about hunting ground is that there isn't closed season for wild boar through the year. Interesting fact is that once the islands Cres and Lošinj were actually one island named Lošinj, before Osor channel was dug. Nowdays Osor lies at channel that separates islands Cres and Lošinj. Islands are connected with a rotating bridge. The channel was build by Romans to make sailing possible through the channel. Osor is an open-air museum where you can find ancient town square surrounded by beautiful buildings from XV and XVI centuries, Bishop's palace, cathedral and bell tower from the early Christian era. Through the town you can encounter many sculptures left behind by the great croatian artist Ivan Meštrović. During the summer months the town becomes open-air stage for Osor Musical Event, which has been held every year in the summer since 1976. Beautiful nature and peaceful environment are granted all the time... Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HR21618839071More

About the neighborhood
The Osor portage, which is supposed to have been much wider than it is today, has been inhabited since prehistoric times due to its strategic importance, as evidenced by numerous finds, especially near the town of Osor.

The name is probably of Illyrian origin and its transformation can be traced since Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Latin records to modern day Italian and Croatian terms: Apsoros, Apsorus, Opsare, Absortium, Osero and Osor.
