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

Villa Celeste was originally part of a 400 year old fortified mansion which has been lovingly restored under supervision by the heritage society. The house has kept many original features but the interiors are modern, cool and comfortable.

Situated at the end of a quiet cobbled street, the entrance to the villa is through wide double doors which lead you into a large airy courtyard with palms, a lemon tree and herb garden. There is a fabulous covered dining area with white floaty curtains to shield the midday sun or the perfect place to enjoy an evening drink, maybe a gin and tonic with a slice of lemon from your very own lemon tree! There is an outside kitchen and shower and there are stone steps which lead up to the first floor of the house.

On the ground floor, the house is open plan with a modern kitchen/dining/sitting area. It has underfloor heating and a wood burner which keeps the house cosy for early or late season bookings. There is a downstairs loo and a utility room.

On the first floor there are two large double bedrooms and a single room which all share a spacious modern shower room. Wooden stairs lead up to the second floor where there are 2 further double bedrooms and a shower room. All the rooms are light and bright and this house has a great feeling of space.

This is the perfect secluded spot, a real oasis from the hustle and bustle of the town. It is the ideal situation to enjoy a little peace and quiet and yet the shops, bars, restaurants and the sea are only a short stroll away.
