Vacation Rental Description
Recommended by the Lonely Planet and Time Out Guides to Croatia, this attractive stone townhouse has real appeal, located centrally in Vis town yet hidden away in a delightful Mediterranean courtyard. Spacious and comfortable, it sleeps six people (eight using the sofabed), with a full DVD and video collection available for the rare rainy day. Original details such as the wood-fired stove, Venetian-style balcony and exposed wooden beams provide oodles of character.

Owner Location Comment
Vis, Croatia's most beautiful and remote inhabited island, lies 40 km off the coast of Dalmatia. It's the Mediterranean as it used to be. You won't find hotel complexes or rampant commercialisation on Vis. What you will find are the friendliest of people, unspoilt, secluded coves, delicious sea-food, stunning scenery and the cleanest waters in the Adriatic.
