A lovely apartment, perfect for our family holiday. Quiet, with a fantastic view, my favourite parts of the day were sitting on the balcony first thing in the morning, and last thing at night watching the boats go in and out! Although it is slightly out of town it is only a short bus journey into town for restaurants, or to get to the beaches. The bus service is fantastic, day tickets are the best option as they last 24 hours, and under 7s travel free.
The owners were lovely, extremely helpful and even rescued us when my son stood on a sea urchin! Top hosts!
Lovely apartment with amazing views and a wonderful host! Easy to catch the bus to old town. Would definitely come back!
Villa is well maintened & clean .2minwalk to bus stop bus No3 that takes you straight to the old town in approx 15 mins .we were well looked after with us organising With Antonija our transfers which went very smoothly & reasonably priced .We were able to check in early which was a bonus once at Villla we got to meet the friendly family & were treated to coffee & water & all the local information that would be helpful for us during our stay . They were always on call for us if we needed anything highly recomend this villa for any number of people over 6 but room for 10
We're just back from an 8 night stay at Villa BUTIGAN, as a family of 5 (myself & my husband, two kids ages 15 & 11 and my mother). What an absolutely brilliant holiday it was, too. The Villa is perfect and in the best location, in my opinion. The rooms are all spacious and comfortable, the air-conditioning a god send (it never dropped below 28 during the nights we were there!), the terrace and views are incredible and provide the perfect place for relaxing afternoons/evenings, sitting with a bottle of wine, watching the boats go about the harbour! Maria was a wonderful host - so warm and friendly, even gifting us with things like home-made strudel (delicious) or fresh figs when we saw her in the mornings! Always on hand and asking if everything was ok but also giving complete privacy during our stay - thank you so much, Maria!
The Villa is a 30 second walk to the bus stop, which provides a great half-hourly service to all the main stops, with the Old Town being the last stop. It is a flat rate of 15 Kuna per person with kids under 12 being free. There was so much to do in the area that I could've stayed another week but I will review each attraction separately. The Konzum Supermarket is a 5 minute drive and we found everything we needed to stock the Villa during our stay. We enjoyed walking (down the very steep hill!) to the Port area of Gruz in the evenings, where we enjoyed nice meals, and from there, it was very easy to get the no 3 bus back to the Villa, which is the last stop on the route. All in all, a fantastic family holiday location in a beautiful apartment with the most accommodating, lovely family as our hosts. Would definitely recommend and hope to return one day! x
