Located in Podstrana, between the famous town of Split, and the small town of Omis, stands Villa Esse; a luxurious 4 bedroom holiday villa that accommodates up to 8 guests and features a private swimming pool, sauna and gym. Contemporary in design, fully air-conditioned and spacious throughout, the ground floor features an open-plan living and dining area with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that showcase spectacular views of your private pool area and across the Adriatic. The decor is modern and fresh in tones of white and soft grey with accents of teal and warm wood, and there are mod cons such as a flatscreen TV, WiFi and a PS5 for guests to enjoy.

On the ground floor you’ll also find your fully-equipped kitchen that includes a wine cooler, Nespresso and microwave, as well as all the basics that you would expect for creating family breakfasts and wonderful evening meals. There is a separate toilet on this floor, as well as one of the double bedrooms, which features a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite bathroom with shower and a TV.

You’ll find a further 3 double bedrooms on the first floor, all decorated in the same clean, neutral tones as the rest of the villa, and also featuring walk-in wardrobes, TVs and ensuite bathrooms with shower. Two of the bedrooms open out onto a private terrace, complete with comfy outdoor furniture and pool or sea views - the perfect place to enjoy that morning coffee or evening glass of bubbly in peace and quiet.

If, for you, a holiday is no excuse to not stay in shape, Villa Esse has got  you covered! The lower ground floor offers a Gym with a treadmill, a punching bag, weights and a yoga ball. There’s also a TV down here to enjoy while you’re working out, a shower, and a Finnish sauna, for the ultimate in post-workout relaxation.

The grounds of Villa Esse are just as impressive as the interior, with a private pool with hydro massage, a sun deck area with 8 deck chairs and a lounge area, as well as a covered outdoor dining space with a traditional barbecue and a TV. The villa is completely fenced and equipped with video surveillance for your privacy and safety, and offers a garage space and parking for 3 cars.

Villa Esse is situated in a quiet area above a coastal road along one of the most beautiful stretches of the Dalmatian coast. Just 250m from the beach, several shops, and restaurants, the villa is ideally located for both those who want to stay put, and those who want to travel further afield during their stay.

The whole region is well known for its gastronomy, and Podstrana is no exception. Dalmatian cuisine combines Mediterranean recipes with local and fresh ingredients, and in Podstrana you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of fish and vegetable dishes, risottoes, peka and pasticada, as well as fabulous prosciutto, olive oil, bread and cheese

The towns of Split and Omis are easy to reach from here, where you’ll be able to take part in all kinds of activities such as golf, tennis, canoeing, rafting and horseback riding. Split is a favourite destination for Game of Thrones fans, where you’ll recognise several famous locations from the popular TV show. Official tours are available - although you’ll want to book in early to avoid the crowds.This buzzing and exuberant city blends modern and traditional styles, and is the perfect place to visit if you want some contrast to the sleepier atmosphere of Podstrana. Inside the impressive Roman monument of Diocletian’s Palace you’ll find dozens of bars, restaurants, and shops to visit, and down at the bustling waterfront you will find fresh seafood served daily.

In Split you’ll also find the famous Bacvice Beach - popular thanks to its long sandy shallows and its close proximity to the city centre, where you can grab a beverage or do a spot of shopping. Another fascinating attraction to visit if you’re in the area is St. Domnius Cathedral, the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world, completed in the 7th century AD. For the best views of the city visitors will want to climb the Bell Tower and drink in the stunning panoramic views.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Esse makes for wonderful family accommodation, with plenty of space both inside and out, a private pool to enjoy, and peace of mind in the form of fenced in grounds and video surveillance. If you’re staying with very young children it’s important to be aware that there are a couple of first floor terraces, stairs both indoors and out, and that the pool doesn’t have a fence or barrier. It is, however, easily accessed by steps rather than a ladder, so well-supervised children will have no end of fun splashing about to their heart’s content. It’s also important to know that all 4 bedrooms are doubles, and that one of them is located on the ground floor - so if you are a large family it might not be possible to all be sleeping in the same vicinity. 

The villa is well-equipped for young guests, with TV’s in every room, WiFi, air conditioning and even a games console. There’s also a highchair within the villa, and plenty of shaded outdoor space in which to eat and relax.

For children, holidays are all about the beach, and luckily for guests at Villa Esse there’s one right on your doorstep. The beach at Podstrana stretches for over 6km, so you’re bound to find an uncrowded spot. It is mostly pebble, but with some small sandy areas - offering the best of both worlds. Beach shoes are recommended on most beaches in the region to protect little feet, and they are available readily and cheaply in many of the shops you’ll find in the area if you haven’t brought your own. The water here tends to be fairly shallow, ideal for kids, and is beautifully clean and crystal clear. Natural shade can be hard to find, although there is always the possibility of renting parasols as well as sun loungers along many stretches of the beach.

You’ll find no end of cafes and restaurants in Podstrana, catering to all tastes, with dishes prepared according to local recipes. With a choice of local taverns, seafood restaurants and pizzerias you’re sure to find something to tempt even the fussiest eater.

Reviews

  • Beautiful Villa!

    Posted by Nadja B on 11/09/2021

    We had an amazing stay and were very comfortable in Villa Esse. It’s about 5 minutes away from the beach by foot. From the Villa you have a perfect view that allows you to take in the spectacular sunsets. The pool is very relaxing and perfect for a chill day. In September just a little bit to cold. The house was very clean. Our host did a great job, she was always there for us.

  • Wonderful

    Posted by Markus E on 31/07/2021

    We enjoyed a great vacation at this beautiful and modern house. The owners are very kind and we were able to contact them via WhatsApp at ever time. The pool is beautiful, the fire place is perfect for BBQ and the kitchen is equipped with the most important things. Every room has an air condition and own bathroom. The beach and a very small supermarket is just a 5 minute walk away. If you stay at the villa you should ask the agency for the contact to the Chef Martin Nane Grubiša. He came to our house and served us a perfect dinner. We also went to his place at the beach for one more dinner.

  • A lovley stay!

    Posted by Sven F on 03/07/2021

    We had a lovely stay at the Villa Esse. The house is very big with a lot of space, and a very nice and luxury interior, inside it was probably the best house we have ever been in. Also outside you've got a very nice pool and enough space. For having dinner outside, the fireplace is maybe too hot in Summer, we only had breakfast there. The way to the closest beach is only 5min by foot. The owners are very kind and care for everything you need, they even filled the refrigerator before we arrived late in the evening. Recommend!!!
