If you have ever dreamed of staying on a Robinson Crusoe style island then villa is just for you. Located on a tranquil olive oil estate with a private beach, this is a remarkable place for the type of holiday where you can really get away from it all.
The island in the Zadar archipelago is car-free and only accessed by private boat. It's uninhabited other than a scattering of holiday homes on the other side and a restaurant. As you step off the boat you will only hear the sounds of nature as you walk up to your homely villa. In the distance you’ll be able to see the well-known Kornati National Park as yachts sail by exploring. That’s for another day though, for now it’s just you, the olive trees and crystal clear waters that surround you.
There are five cosy bedrooms in total, split over two parts of the house united by one of the many wonderful terraces. In each part you will find a bright and well equipped open-plan kitchen-diner with a comfortable living area plus three bedrooms in one of the units and two in the other. Smaller groups can rent the three bedroom unit if they prefer, safe in the knowledge that the facilities are all theirs, except for pruning and picking season when the owners live next door.
The outdoor space makes this place really remarkable where you can watch the sun set over the sparkling sea from the wonderful swimming pool, relax on the sun-loungers reading a book amongst the olive groves or dine under the clear night sky by the stone barbecue on one of the al-fresco terraces.
Despite the remote location, you can easily sail back to the mainland where you will find restaurants, shops and great variety of activities or pick up a car and head to one of Croatia’s nearby cities such as beautiful Zadar or ibenik. You’ll also find shops, restaurants and glorious sandy beaches on the nearby islands of Vrgada and Pašman.
That said, you may not wish to venture far with the solitude and peace of villa and the idyllic islands that surround you. Please note - You are able to book the Three Bedroom Unit by itself, safe in the knowledge that no one will be in the Two Bedroom Unit. The only exception is during Pruning Season (March & April) and Picking Season (October & November) when the owners stay in the Two Bed Unit. This villa has a truly spectacular location on a small island in the Zadar archipelago. The only access is by private boat – day time boat transfers from the mainland (Biograd na Moru) are included for your arrival and departure, otherwise the only way to leave the island is to either rent your own boat from the mainland (you'll need a navigation license) or hire the villa’s skipper when available. It is a car-free island so if guests wish to hire a car then secured car parking can be arranged for approx. €6 per day in Biograd na Moru. There are two mooring piers by the villa for boat hire.
The villa is located on an olive orchard (47,500m2) where they produce a top quality olive oil on site. Pruning season takes place in March/early April and picking is mid October/November; during this time the owner lives in the two bedroom unit and guests next door can take part in the processes if they wish and be rewarded with a delicious meal. The island is uninhabited other than a scattering of other holiday homes and a small restaurant which may be open at times, accessed via boat or you can hike there if you are a keen walker. The island is for those looking for a special holiday away from everyday life where you can truly relax in the tranquillity of the area, enjoying the marvellous views in all directions. You have your own private rocky beach on the estate. Your nearest shops and restaurants are all accessible by boat only, on Vrgada Island (3km), Pakostane (5km), Tkon on the island of Pašman (8km) and Biograd na Moru (8km). The nearby islands of Vrgada and Pašman have sandy beaches you can sail to as well. The cleaner can being groceries for you, on request, when they clean your villa once a week or at an additional charge the housekeeper can deliver groceries to you at other times when available.
The idyllic Kornati National Park, made up of 89 islands, is just across the water, accessible by private boat. Known to be a ‘nautical paradise’ you can explore the archipelago, moor your boat, swim or snorkel, follow hiking trails or go scuba diving with an agency. The wildlife is amazing and there are some beautiful places to sample typical Dalmatian cuisine. Tickets for entry to the National Park must be obtained before or at the start of your visit.
You can also sail back to Biograd Na Moru (8km) for a great range of activities such as tennis, sailing, diving, basketball and beach volleyball or pick up a car and explore the mainland. Head to Zadar, one of Croatia’s coolest cities rich in history, natural beauty and some fine cuisine or drive across to ibenik, a magnificent medieval city and gateway to the Krka National Park and waterfalls. You are able to book the Three Bedroom Unit by itself, safe in the knowledge that no one will be in the Two Bedroom Unit. The only exception is during Pruning Season (March & April) and Picking Season (October & November) when the owners stay in the Two Bed Unit. The Villa
