The website photos do not tell it all – Villa Arc is better than depicted. Tasteful decoration throughout meant we couldn’t decide which bedroom we all liked best. The picture window looked out over the pool towards the stunning views of the local Croatian villages. As we sat on our balcony at night we were able to spot the constellations in the clear night sky. For the first time ever we didn’t visit the local beaches – lying by the pool with the mountain breeze to take the sting from the sun won every time. Our agent outlined how the house operated and pointed us towards local facilities, restaurants and areas of interest in both Croatia and Bosnia. Her recommendations were accurate – local restaurant delicious (and very cheap) – veal under the bell was melt in your mouth, and our children loved the carbonara and squid. Explore the history in the village of Trebinje – you won’t be disappointed. Watching the semi-final of the World Cup was atmospheric to say the least. Our guides on the kayaking trip in Dubrovnik were more informative than any guidebook. Wandering around Dubrovnik in the early evening suited our two young adults. Unfortunately, we were too late to walk the walls. The ultimate compliment from one of our teenagers came as we drove along the mountain roads (a bit daunting, especially when you’re a bit scared of heights) – I’m so glad we don’t go the commercialised places like all my friends. They don’t what they’re missing – it’s all so stunning.

“Now we are back in Berlin and we really want to say thank you for the pleasant stay at Ivanica. We were staying in Villa Arc and it was really nice. The location is perfect made for day trips along the Adriatic but also to Mostar is nice. Thank you for all the good tips from Marija about shopping, restaurants and everything else. Marija was a perfect host and did a really great Job. We needed a birthday cake and immediately and magically – the cake was there! Marija is such a helpful and kind host and she really made our stay with you special! We had a great time and thank you so much for everything!!!

Waking up back home in ‘not so sunny’ Bristol and just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had at your beautiful villa in Bosnia. Have bought a lottery ticket so we can purchase the plot next door, not only for the luxurious house and views, but also, judging by your record collection, we’d be very compatible neighbours!
If the lottery win doesn’t pan out, we looking forward to the EasyJet flights coming out for next summer and possibly booking villa Arc again next year!
Thanks once again for the loan of your house and all your help in the booking process.

As you know we loved the villa (it should be rated 5*) everything has been thoughtfully provided to ensure a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The area is perfect for a getaway from it all break. We found it a bit confusing at first, but once we got used to the roads and the borders and the difference between the 2 countries we really chilled out. We couldn’t believe how cheap it was to eat in Bosnia!
We went to the Old City in Dubrovnik on the Friday but it was busy with tourists we were not too impressed, but it is an amazing place I would love to see it again out of season. We loved the coast line at Kupari, Srebeno and Mlini, we walked right along the coast there the sea was lovely and warm.
Martin’s favorite place was up in the hills along the railway line he took some amazing photos. We would seriously like to go back there next year…

Got back from Villa Arc yesterday. The villa was fantastic and everything my wife was looking for. Clean, quiet with a little bit of luxury. The view is fantastic and changed with the time of day. Even the storm we had on Sunday was impressive. All the information you provided was fantastic too. We noticed your comments on how cheap things were in Bosnia but it still came as a shock when a meal that would cost you £60 at home came in at £30…
