This 200 year old luxury stone house on unspoilt Vis Island, Croatia is in the centre of the quiet pretty Venetian village of Kut. You can be in the sea 3 minutes after leaving your front door, and are surrounded by all amenities including grocery store, bars, cafés and many of the best restaurants on the island. Open air cinema, pizza house, etc are 15 mins walk.An excellent yoga teacher is within 1 min, with masseuse 20 mins along the promenade in Vis town.
The island of Vis is situated in the middle of the Adriatic Sea. The house was refurbished in 2006 and is kept to a very high standard. It is perfectly situated for a relaxing villa holiday in Croatia for 2 couples and 2 children. It is situated in the centre of Kut village at the far end of Vis bay with charming walks to Vis town and various beaches. Diving pick up point, sailing and cycling all on your doorstep.
The house is 1 minute from an ice cream parlour, 4 of the best restaurants & bars on the island, the riva (waterfront promenade) for a quick dip to cool off, village shop, small market, etc, and scuba diving pick up. In a 20 minute walk you can get to Grandovac beach (with a bar offering snacks and drinks), an open air cinema, theatre, museum, pizza and other restaurants. Car, scooter and boat hire is easily available locally, and recommended for a day or two to explore the island’s many beautiful coves, beaches, restaurants, vineyards, herb gardens, and fragrant hills abundant with flora & fauna. There is a regular bus service to Komiža from Luka (ferry port) – 25 mins walk. This is a must-do outing as it is the gateway to the renowned Blue Cave which you must not miss. Being a working fishing port it has a totally different atmosphere to Vis, and locals speak a different and similarly indecipherable dialect of the Croatian language! It has some good restaurants and two beaches (at either end of the village).
Fly to Split, Croatia and take a ferry or catamaran to the island. Alternatively you can take a ferry or catamaran from Ancona in Italy.
Split to Vis town
4 of the island's best restaurants are within 2 mins
Small bathing point off waterfront is 3 mins, multiple swimming points off the rocky promenade are 10 – 15 mins, pretty Grandovac beach & bar is 20 mins
Village shops, bakeries and wine cellars are all within 2 mins
In summer in Kut (2 mins) or Vis town (20 mins) all year round
Optional – nice for 1 or 2 days to see the rest of the island, but scooter hire is more fun and easier to negotiate the narrow streets.
The ground floor is home to the fully equipped kitchen including ceiling fans, dishwasher, washing machine and drier, a downstairs WC and access to the courtyard. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both with air conditioning and ceiling fans, and one of which has a balcony. There is also a bathroom on this floor. On the second floor you will find the large air conditioned sitting room with ceiling fan and balcony. Here there are two sofas (which convert to sofa beds), TV and DVD player and a separate shower room. There is also a roof space gallery which overlooks the salon inside and has a small balcony with panoramic views of the bay.
The kitchen opens on to a secluded gated courtyard which provides an opportunity for al fresco dining. It enjoys both sunshine and shade throughout all the daylight hours. There are 2 balconies at the back (for afternoon sunshine) and one at the top of the house to watch the sunset over the bay. Traffic is banned from Kut village and promenade to Vis town, making all area safe for children’s bicycles and shopping. Parking is 10 minutes.
Open air cinema (showing current films in English) is 15 mins, with pizza restaurant on the way. There is an excellent yoga teacher within 1 min of the house; masseuse and hair dressing 20 mins in Vis town. We can recommend a cook who will prepare local dishes if required. However, we often ask the Pojoda restaurant to put some fish soup and a risotto in our own pans if we are feeling tired and hungry! Our brilliant agent, Medo, runs off-road tours relating to WWII, Napoleonic & Roman history on Vis, wine tasting and provides GPS self-guided walking and bicycle hire.
