We have just returned from two amazing weeks in the Lovely Villa Ana. I spent the last 11 months worrying it that it wouldn’t be as good as it looked but it was better! The views were really this stunning every day and the gorgeous pink sunset light was breathtaking. We didn’t use the telescope but did enjoy lying in the garden watching the stars. Firstly the accommodation. Rooms are all generously proportioned and four of the five bedrooms have fabulous sea and garden views. Bedroom five is a small double but still en-suite. We were there as an extended family group and so this worked absolutely fine, if you were going as friends / couples you’d need to think about this. The beds were very comfortable and good supply of beach and bath towels. The inside living space is big and well equipped although with wall to wall sunshine we didn’t really use it. Outside patio and gardens are stunning - lovely big table for lunches and suppers al fresco. The “bed / lounger” half way down the garden was used loads especially for a bit of time sleeping in the shade. Both the inside and outside kitchen were really very well equipped. Lots and lots of crockery and glasses etc, but also a kitchen equipped for actually cooking, with proper utensils, sharp knives, serving dishes etc. We were really very impressed. The fridge freezer is ample size for the villa and there is a smaller outside fridge. The pool is on the smaller side but given the vicinity of the sea it was used more for sitting and chatting / cooling down then much activity and was absolutely fine for this. Our group loved the table tennis and canoes and made good use of these and the bikes. Great to have life jackets etc all to hand. Worth taking sea shoes with you - the rocks getting into the sea are a bit slimey - also readily available in any of the shops. The local area is fantastic with a short walk / cycle (10-15mins) into the stunningly beautiful harbour town Jelsa. There are easily enough bars and restaurants as well as several supermarkets, butchers etc. All the local produce we had was not only great quality but great value as were meals out. Some real gems if you head back from the sea front. Probably the biggest surprise to us was the extent of the local wine production and we enjoyed a wide variety of great quality locally produced wine. A short cycle ride away is Vbrosnik (10-15min cycle) which is very different, a bit smaller but well worth a visit. We also drove into Stari Grad which again has a slightly different vibe but well equipped and worth a visit. We loved the low key feel to all these places. We had a car with us which made trips out very easy, but also found local taxi’s easy to get hold of and good value. All the ferry and catamaran services we used were efficient and reliable and very reasonably priced. The service we had from Michaela and the team was exceptional. Friendly, helpful, always on time and always going out of their way to make sure we had the best holiday; couldn’t have asked for more.
