Breakfast by the sea.
Our first trip to Croatia was as a result of a recommendation of this villa. We knew the credentials of the owner after staying in another property. After an interesting drive from Dubrovnic, courtesy of local minibus driver Peter, we arrived in the quiet village of Viganj, right at the edge of the calm sea. There it was, perched a very minor road width from the waters edge. The view from the front terrace was wonderful and a favourite of our party of six. Despite the private pool at the rear with its own eating area, or the rooftop terrace, this was the place to eat. Sun all day and a sunset in the evening. A calm sea, views across to korcula. Bliss.
The rest of the villa was huge with a little used dining/lounge area and a kitchen you could party in. The bedrooms were luxuriously comfortable each with ensuite facilities.
The villa itself was a treat but around it was a quiet and easy going affair. We were there at the end of the season and the bars and restaurants, of which there were a few good ones within a few minute walk, were relaxed and good value. The fish and seafood was excellent.
Also within walking distance was the water sports schools where you can hire equipment. Recommended.
Beyond the immediate village, Orebic was a long walk with more bars and more facilities. There was a local bus service though if you didn't have a car. Failing that, Peter was always available.
The island of korcula, was reached twice a day from just down the road from the villa or several times from Orebic. Well worth a visit. And also a stopping off point for ferries to other islands.
All in all, a great week for our introduction to Croatia, and one I would recommend if you like the peaceful laid back type of holiday and you are willing to explore the area. One thing for sure, you won't be disappointed with the villa. You won't want to leave.
Dear Mick and Family
My sincere thanks for your detailed review, to report on what sounds to have been a wonderful holiday at my property Footprints Villa! I am so pleased you all had such a lovely relaxing time and the villa was just as needed for your group. I am pleased the transfer and local driver I arranged worked out well too. He's a great contact to have.
We are so fortunate to be able to share such a lovely location with its stunning vistas and thrilled you enjoyed every aspect. It was a pleasure to have been of service again (this client stayed at my other property in Mallorca (footprintsvillamallorca.com) and do hope you return again soon! Kind regards. Richard, owner. footprintsvillacroatia.com
The warning that "If it looks too good to be true-it probably is !" is overturned by Footprints! This place really is as good as it looks. The location is amazing. " Near the sea" -really does mean near the sea! But its not just the sea-the local supermarket, cycle and water sports hire shops and restaurants are also a few steps away yet the location is quiet, friendly and peaceful.
The villa had everything we needed as an extended family group of 10. Its very well equipped, has a wonderful pool, air conditioning , lashings of hot water, super fast Wi-Fi, UK TV and some wonderful outside eating and sun bathing areas - along with some quirky furniture and fittings.
The 15 minute boat trip to Korcula is a must and our mixed age group family found plenty to do without the need for a car.
All in all - Footprints provided a wonderful holiday . We are already planning our next stay!

Wonderful Villa Holiday
We had a wonderful holiday at Footprints Villa, set in such a beautiful seaside village. As first timers to Croatia we were really pleased with the property and location. Being keen walkers, seven adults were well served with the stunning areas to explore in the immediate vicinity.
The villa itself is very well appointed with lots of space for all. The kitchen was a great social area with seating as needed whilst we enjoyed cooking together. There are outside dining tables by the pool or on the seafront terrace and also a dining room inside, so plenty of choice. A cold glass of local wine went down well while enjoying the beautiful view from the front patio. We were blessed with warm Autumn sun.
Lots of nice touches too, with a big welcome pack we found on arrival and a very helpful local agent.
Comfy beds too to rest our weary bones!
Made very welcome when we went out to eat, to explore or just for a village wander.
A lovely large home to spread out and relax in. Highly recommended.
Dear James & friends
My sincere thanks for your kind and valued comments following your recent October stay. It sounds like you all really made the most of our wonderful location. I wonder if you happened to ascend the hills that rise up behind the villa and village? The largest is as high as England's highest! Scar Fell (located in my neck of the woods!). I am pleased the villa was ideal, inside and out for all your needs, and made for a great social trip together. Thank you for your appreciation of my agent and your final recommendation to others. With kind regards. Richard (owner). I now have my own web site - footprintsvillacroatia(.com)
Bad choice for a late season stay
We would have given a higher star rating as the house is well equipped and
in a lovely setting but there were two major issues which marred our late
season stay and others need to be aware of this. We arrived in late
September and the owner had not made us aware that building works are
permitted from 15th September onwards. Builders were tearing down the first
floor and roof of a property two doors away so we were subjected to drilling
with a jack hammer, grinding etc which often didn't end till gone 7pm so
ruined our peaceful sunsets.This completely ruined our holiday. The owner
suggested we move elsewhere but made no offer to assist with the cost of
this. He hides behind his Terms and Conditions about noise, especially as
his manager lives locally and clearly knew about the noisy works before our
arrival. Also be aware that all the lovely restaurants within walking
distance close for the season on 30th September, so heaven help any client
without a car who cannot make the trek to the nearest town of Orebic. We
were also disappointed that the manager did not put in an appearance for our
arrival (or departure) and we had to let ourselves in. A most disappointing
choice for an autumn holiday, based on the previous five star reviews. PS
one of the double rooms which fronts onto the pool area only has a cell-like
window high up and there was a smell of drains from the bathroom which is
obviously an ongoing issue as it was acknowledged by the manager.
As an owner, I have a right to reply to reviews. This unique submission is exaggerated, inaccurate & it is important to provide a balanced view. This guest arrived 2 hours later than expected & my agent Fani waited until well after the allotted time. The village is small, safe & being a local she left the villa’s door unlocked for them. The agent noted they arrived early evening.
As rare as it is in our historic village, building should not as I understand progress until the end of the season. It’s why I spent 3 years restoring my villa, honouring this. The guest emailed that someone in the village was doing some work. My agent was asked to address the issue with the villager. The work stopped the next day. The guest confirmed in writing to me that this was the case. I’d had many communications with her over this 48-hour period. Such communications also included her complaint that some crisps had not been supplied with her welcome pack.
In my T&C’s it states that I cannot be responsible for any issues arising from another location in the village but will do all we can if needed. This we fully did, but nothing appeased. Thus after just 48 hours of trying, I suggested a move. We heard nothing further. Once the guest returned home, money was expected. I do not hide behind my T&Cs. They state that if needed, I will offer alternate accommodation and if not suitable, a refund. They are standard rental conditions that any respectable villa owner must supply to you.
The guest states that ‘the lovely restaurants’ where closed. There remain numerous places to enjoy excellent local cuisine in late season in this coastal area. If asked, we could have suggested plenty of choice. If everything was closed where do the locals eat?
This party was only 2 couples. My villa has 5 bedrooms and the room she refers to was not intended for use. As such, the bathroom services had not been used and a run of the hot tap remedied the issue. It has 2 windows front & rear, high enough for privacy, large enough for light. It’s a very old historic house, so we retained such 150 year-old features.
I would invite you to read the large number of recent past reviews below & on other sites, many from just days/weeks before this guest. Over 6 years you will see no mention of any building work, incomplete welcome packs, smelling drains, small windows, an unhelpful agent or closed restaurants. My historic villa home is in a lovely village with decent respectful neighbours.
The villa was beautiful with marvellous facilities. Great kitchen and fab views from bedrooms and large terrace. Sea literally across the road, crystal clear waters and lovely little stone jetties all along the coastal walk. So peaceful and unspoilt. Lots of restaurants and bars closeby with one almost next door for a cold beer sitting right out over the sea. Loved it and would certainly go back to "Footprints" .
I'm so pleased you all had a wonderful stay at Footprints Villa. My sincere thanks for your kind comments regarding the villa and its features and the fortunate location right on the seafront! To be positioned on the tiny village promenade, with peaceful places to eat and drink just a wander away is what makes Footprints so unique. I feel very fortunate. Come back soon! Kind regards. Richard, owner. Lots more info too on my own site - footprintsvillacroatia(.com).
Relaxing on the Adriatic
Seven ladies, seven days, spent at a lovely villa on the Adriatic. The views from Footprints were spectacular. The villa was clean, spacious and well equipped. Fani arranged two terrific tours for us, one to the vineyards and one to Mali Ston to watch them harvest the oysters and mussels.. We enjoyed Viganj, the local people were helpful and gracious. The restaurants were within walking distance, they served great food, fresh fish and fresh local vegetables. One note...make sure you have Kunas, some of the restaurants do not accept credit cards. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Footprints, Viganj, and Croatia for a great vacation. Our stay ..May 21st to the 28th, 2016 The Vermont Ladies
