Having been shut off from foreign visitors for the majority of the twentieth century, Vis has retained a wonderfully authentic Dalmatian island feel. You’d be forgiven for thinking you were in Greece, so much so that the island was chosen to be home to Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again, and for good reason – quiet island life, friendly locals, deliciously fresh food and buzzy little bars. Vis is as much of a must see as the film.
Crystal clear, glistening waters lap gently against the shore, and there are ample spots for swimming directly off the water-side paths straight in to the warm seas. The two main areas of Vis on its North East coast are Vis Town and Kut. Vis Town is the busier of the two, with many bars and restaurants, the main marina, a sweet chapel, the main ferry port and plenty to see and do both day and night.
Kut is a short walk further East, following the ambling coastal path, and is also home to some wonderful eateries that are within easy strolling distance of some of our villas. Keep following this path and you’ll reach Grandovac beach – a glorious pebble beach with its own outdoor bar and dancefloor during the summer months, great for teenagers who want to escape in the evenings whilst the adults needn’t fear they’ve gone too far afield!
On the West coast is Komiza, a ‘friendly’ rival to Vis Town, known for its slightly bohemian feel and proud fishing heritage. There are delightful little beaches scattered around, and from the harbour you can catch a boat to the neighbouring island of Bisevo to visit the beautiful Blue Caves.
You simply must explore the area by boat once here – it would be crazy not to! We took a boat over to the nearby island of Budikovac, where the island’s single inhabitant (rumour has it he was banished from Vis many years before, though he seemed friendly enough to us!) prepares the most incredible fresh dishes at his menu-less restaurant – your skipper will drop anchor just offshore, and a charming rowing boat will come across to meet you and take you safely ashore. This Crusoe-esque set up is quite simply wonderful and should definitely feature on your holiday itinerary; the fish is so incredibly fresh and the flavours divine.. the whole experience alone is not to be missed.
Built in the 1700s, this glorious seafront town house is ideally situated in the heart of Vis town. Looking out over a quiet, cobbled square right on the water’s edge, this house feels like a charming oasis whilst still being perfectly in the thick of it.
Owned by a wonderful, design-led couple, the interiors are just to die for, a wonderful mix of modern and vintage, with fabulous colours and put together with impeccable taste.
Enter from the cobbled square (conveniently positioned just a hop, skip and a jump away from one of the islands best restaurants) and head straight up stairs to the beautifully light and breezy living space, accented with cobalt blue furnishings and statement walls. The kitchen is simply divine – wonderful original tiles and old-fashioned jars and nick-knacks paired with all the necessary mod-cons and luxuries.
As for the bedrooms – where to start! White walls, sumptuous linens and drapes, muted colours and real one-off pieces – each room as wonderful as the next means you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing between you all.
Step up from the kitchen area to the outdoor dining terrace, with integrated stone seating areas, plush comfy cushions and wonderfully mood-lit in the evenings. Continue further still through the paved gardens, past fertile lemon and orange trees, towards the swimming pool area – the citrus trees providing the perfect dappled shade for the seating areas below.
