Myself and my husband stayed in Villa Valentine from the 23rd to the 30th of Sept 2018, its a huge villa large enough for at least 3 couples, but we own a restaurant and work hundreds of hours, so we took the whole place for ourselves to have peace, quite, tranquility and privacy. We could not have done better. Villa Valentina is gorgeous, clean, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. We did not turn on the television once the whole week, preferring to lose ourselves in the 360 stunning views. Walks around the villa down to the beach and all around the island were perfect. The area is very natural and unspoiled. Josip and his wife Slavica are very gracious hosts and although there is a language barrier - we somehow found how to communicate with hand gestures, little bits of german and english and their daughter Valentina was only a phone call or a what's up message away with perfect British English. On our second night, when we were having dinner on the terrace - Josip handed in a plate of apple streudel that no doubt Slavica had made and on Wednesday he grilled us the most delicious bbq of fish and meat. We had forgotten to buy potatoes, and the local shop closed at 2pm that day, Josip came around the corner holding a substantial amount of potatoes, from his own garden and refused for us to replace them. We were also curious to try the sourdough bread from a bakery in Split, but did not feel like venturing there, Josip so kindly bought some on one of his foray's to the city and brought it back for us. This is the kind of genteel hospitality you will experience and you can tell it comes from the heart to make his guests feel welcome and at home.
The pool, the terraces allow a huge amount of privacy, yet are large and inviting if you are a larger group.
The surrounding area is beautiful, we particularly loved Primosten and Rogoznica where you can enjoy a beautiful lunch or dinner and also purchase any groceries you may need for your stay at Villa Valentina.
We ate dinner 3 times in Buffet Toni, a simple but lovely little restaurant a 10 min walk away, and also enjoyed lunch in Lanterna, which is expensive for what they serve, but you are paying for the location and the views and we felt it was totally worth it.
We are already planning our next visit to Villa Valentina. The big question whether to bring a couple of friends to discover this little paradise, or keep the secret and this gem all to ourselves again. Thank you Josip, Slavica and Valentina for an extraordinary experience. A bientot!
Wir (2 Erwachsene, 4 große Kinder) haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Kommunikation und Check-In/-Out waren super und Entgegenkommend und haben uns das Ankommen leicht gemacht. Die Lage ist sehr nahe am Wasser und der Garten lädt zum Verweilen ein, dort konnten wir auch Schatten genießen.
