When I organise our family holiday it is always with some trepidation as the holiday approaches. Vlasta has been so helpful from the first enquiries I made about the lighthouse and it was so reassuring to see her waving to us as the Drvenik ferry passed the property.
I cannot adequately describe the property as the pictures do not do it justice. It really is perfect. the building itself is stunning and the four double bedrooms are of a really high standard with ensuites befitting top hotel rooms. The beds are so comfortable and the windows open out to the sea and it was magical to hear the waves in the morning.
The kitchen has every bit of equipment you would ever need and the outside kitchen is every mans dream. A bbq oven which my husband enjoyed preparing meals in. Vlasta has a garden which was full of tomatoes which guests are allowed to pick - have I mentioned the peppers, basil, parsley, courgettes and cucumbers too?
We spent so much time in the garden - tables, chairs and loungers in all areas depending on wether you needed shade or sun. The creme de la creme is the access to the sea. with the temperature in mid 30s the jetty provided a perfect launch point for many hours spent snorkelling the beautifully clear seas.
The beautiful harbour town of Sucaraj is a short 5min walk away and it really provided all we needed - several good restaurants and small shops. Our favourite was Fortica which is run by Stipe and his family and his food was delicious - try the fish stew or the fish platter - amazing!
Vlasta has also made 4 bikes available and these were a godsend to us and we went on several long bike rides around the coast - a real bonus. One evening we sat and watched a massive thunderstorm and the 360 degree vantage point allowed us to view the most magnificent lightening strikes and sheets from the mainland and other islands!
It really was the best holiday destination I have ever been to and as I type this I am smiling at the wonderful memories I have. Vlasta invited us to her restaurant Konoba Varos in Split and we ate there last night and it was the perfect end to our time in Croatia.
