Croatian Island Villas – Some Amazing Places to Stay

by Saron Lease of Croatia Gems, 20th October 2023

An insider’s guide to the best villas for Croatian Island holidays, including the luxury villas on Islands Brac, Hvar, Korcula and Vis. Escape to Croatian Island Villas!

Brac Island

Brac Island is a fantastic choice for a villa holiday in Croatia. Take a flight to Split  & ferry hop in about an hour to Brac Island to explore unspoiled Croatian beaches, some of the best Croatian food and wine & charming sea edge villages full of ambiance. There are no shortage of activities on Brac Island, from boat trips to windsurfing,  agro-tourism in the island’s rural interior and some great places to eat or just exploring…

Where to stay

Villa Corrine which now has 6 bedrooms and the most beautiful garden full of fresh produce, if you have a budding chef in your party, this could tick all the boxes . On the beach itself there is a restaurant/ beach bar and a snack bar with another restaurant just outside the village – nearby Supetar is a 5 minute drive or 25 minute walk along the beach with a supermarket/craft shops and a good selection of restaurants, and its easy with 14 ferries a day to hop on one as a foot passenger and have a day/night out in Split old town – last ferry back just before midnight.

Or maybe one of several luxury villas in the exclusive Puntinak area close to Sumartin. For example Villa Oceanfront is a 6-bedroom sea edge villa in a stunningly beautiful spot. A really well-equipped villa where your every need is taken care of. Staff include the villa manager who is always available to assist you, or to help with organising food, boat trips and other activities, and daily cleaners who come for a couple of hours to tidy up and make the beds.

Villa Godi Star  a 5 bedroom all en-suite gets great reviews and was featured in the Mail on Sunday Travel section – Mail on Sunday Travel section. The villa owner and has an excursions company so you have really great hosts here! One of the best Croatian Island villas in our opinion. You have a beach bar and restaurant a short wander away and lots to explore as I said above. It’s in Sumartin Bay and it’s really lovely. Obviously locations do vary a lot in Croatia but in terms of Croatian Island Villas and the area around the villa – you sort of feel like you are in your own part of the island.  You can hop to Makarska very easily which is another great place to visit and nice day trip (ferry from Sumartin itself) and Bol Town is nearby which is well worth a visit. Brac Island is absolutely beautiful I have to say, lots of great places to see. Have a look at these Brac Island Locations.

Smaller Brac villas

Villa Sinatra in Sumartin Bay – a really lovely place and the beaches are great. This villa has 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, pool & is very close to the sea, has great views and within easy walking distance of all your day to day needs.  Sumartin has a nice buzz about it and is has everything you need and there’s lots to explore in the vicinity – some great places to visit by boat too.  Bol Town is nearby – about 30 mins in a taxi, with lots of bars and nightlife which is well worth a visit. There is also Mount Vidova Gora to climb with smashing views or plenty of other activities.

Close by are two luxury villas – Villa Stara and its sister villa, Villa More. They are super new sea edge luxury villas, each with 4 bedrooms, super views and within easy walking distance of all your day-to-day needs. They are different layouts, but equally lovely and high-spec, with staff to help make your stay even more relaxing.

Villa Adora is newly built to a high standard with 4 en-suite double bedrooms, spacious and within walking distance of everything in Milna at the western end of the island. There’s a large new marina so plenty of restaurants and convenience stores. There are also direct ferries to Milna from Split.

 

Hvar Island

Hvar Island – The Island of Hvar is home to the beautiful & cosmopolitan, yet traditional Hvar Town with its classy harbour. Dotted along the coast from Hvar Town you will find pretty little villages with that “off the beaten track” feel, but only a short drive to Hvar Town itself! The island’s Stari Grad Plain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the cultivation pattern of olive trees as laid out by early Greek colonists has been perfectly preserved for some two and a half thousand years. Or try the other side of the island and the ambience of Jelsa or Vrboska – Hvar Island – Hvar Town, Jelsa, Vrboska…

Where to stay

Croatian Island Villas – Luxury Villa Champagne will be right for you if you want to be near sought-after Hvar town but with some privacy. Four en-suite bedrooms, spacious living area and fabulous sea views from every room. Just a 20 minute walk into town. The concierge service can arrange everything for you.

Villa Sea Rose is just a 15 minute drive (or water taxi) from busy Hvar town and is part of a private national park area – the park is accessed through a private electric gateway, so a real oasis away from the hustle & bustle – no one can enter this area without an invitation!


Villa Belleview has it all – views and beach, restaurants and day-to-day needs on your doorstep. Three double en-suite bedrooms, plus a double sofa bed in the living room.

 

Korcula Island

Korcula Island is a hidden gem! Easy to get to from Dubrovnik or Split, just hop on a ferry and marvel at the beautiful scenery. Well known by those who have discovered it, Korcula is a beautiful island of fabulous beaches and coves, great wines and pretty sea side villages and stunning old towns. The old Town of Korcula is known as a mini Dubrovnik and has it’s own little islands! The Peljesac Peninsula is nearby and easy to get to too…Korcula Island – Lumbarda, Rasicse, Cara, Vela Luka…

Where to stay

Villa Opus – If you are looking for a spectacular villa with direct sea access, luxury design and peaceful surroundings, look no further than Villa Opus – this modern property is on three levels, located just 5 km from Korcula town. One of the main highlights of the property is the floor to ceiling windows which provide unsurpassed views over the bay and the Peljesac peninsula. The whole property is luxurious and elegantly designed and has been equipped using the best of everything, from crystal chandeliers to gorgeous fabrics and contemporary furnishings.

Just in the next bay a short drive from Korcula Town is a brand new Villa Lumbarda, tucked away in the beautiful bay of Lumbarda, with breath-taking views and spacious interiors. Arranged as two x 2-bedroom apartments, it also has a gym and jacuzzi, and includes breakfast served in a restaurant in nearby Korcula town.

Villa Milfora is a stunning 6 bedroom  6 bathroom villa in Prizba. It’s right on the sea edge in a really good location facing the Lastovo channel, beloved of divers and  snorkelers as the water there is crystal clear. Nice restaurant with more in the village of Prizba just 1.5km away – here you can also hire mountain bikes and kayaks.

 

Vis Island

Probably best known as the setting for Mama Mia, Here we go Again, but beloved by those who appreciate an unspoilt more authentic island experience. Not as easy to reach as other islands, it is less crowded and life feels at a slower pace. Nevertheless, there’s lots to see and do, with hidden coves, blue caves boat experience, an interesting history, vineyards and rolling hills.

Where to stay

Villa Silente has an idyllic setting next to the beach in Tiha Bay. You have 2 bedrooms (one with a double bed and a single bed, and one with twin beds) so perfect for a small family or a romantic getaway. The villa is well kitted out with all you need, and has a super terrace overlooking the sea where you can soak up the sun or have BBQs or romantic alfresco meals. There are a couple of beaches within walking distance, the nearest of which is literally on your doorstep!
