Local Information

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 to 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 a 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.

Our View

This beautiful 16th Century townhouse is in such a perfect spot – set back from the main thoroughfare, but still just a stone’s throw away from a wonderful restaurant, and right on the water too.

You enter through a charming courtyard garden, following the walkway round to the main entrance. Head up the beautiful old stone staircase to the main living area – wonderfully lit by the stunning floor to ceiling glass doors, opening out onto a sea-facing terrace. This sitting room is so perfectly light and airy, with huge comfortable sofas, and an incredibly homely feel, accentuated with one-off pieces of antique furniture.
On this level, the three main double bedrooms lead off the sitting room, each with its own en suite bathroom, lovely, comfortable beds and ample room.

A hallway guides you through to the open plan kitchen/dining room, fully equipped, and leading out to another terrace with sea views. Leading from the opposite side of the kitchen, there is a lush walled garden, with a covered dining table, perfect for late night summer suppers alfresco, or sunny lunches, as the canopies of lemon and orange trees provides the perfect shade.
Back indoors, further on from the kitchen, there’s a second sitting room, with a cosier feel; an open fire and the potential to become an indoor dining room for off-season stays.

A corner staircase leads up to the attic floor, where there are three triple bedrooms, the perfect crash pad for children and teenagers alike, with three double beds and three single beds, two bathrooms and the run of the whole floor!

This house really is the perfect base from which to explore the island..
