THE LOCATION- Viganj Village
Footprints Villa sits in the heart of the beautiful village of Viganj, just + 90 minutes from Dubrovnik airport (transfers arranged, starting from £14 per person - based on 8 guests in one van). Viganj has it's own web site, so for more specific local information - just search 'viganj'.
Adjacent are the villages of Kuciste, Perna and the town of Orebic, and across the water (accessable via the little foot ferry that leaves the quay just 150m from the villa in peak months) is the stunning mini-city of Korcula (pictured right). Korcula is of course accessible in all low season months via the hourly ferry that docks 10 minutes way in Orebic.
The villa is the ideal base for simply relaxing, or cycling, walking, sailing, kayaking, winetasting (this is Croatia's wine region) and certainly enjoying the regions famed cuisine.
If you're inclined to just soaking up the sun, the vista of all the kites and sails darting across the bay is a delight to enjoy with a glass of something cold in hand, viewed from the terrace of the villa. Or by the private courtyard pool.
The village has many restaurants, most opening in June to September. In the quieter months, there are lovely places to eat no more than a 5 minute drive away, and we arrange taxis for such occasions.
