Description

Casa Sienna is the perfect venue for lovers of sport, fine food and relaxation. Although not set in the same amount of outdoor space as Bella, it is a wonderful villa for couples, families or friends as the pool is sufficiently close to the villa to enable parents to keep a close eye on their children. It provides the perfect spot from which to explore the region and sample its multitude of delights, including an award winning restaurant within walking distance. The nearby hamlet of Sovinjak is a two minute walk and has a small restaurant where you can eat and buy wine. It is situated alongside three other properties, all with their own private pools, and should you wish to book one of them to provide for a larger group, we may be able to arrange this for you. The villa is situated up a number of steps so is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

Accommodation

The villa is traditionally decorated and has a lovely homely feel. We have enjoyed many family holidays there. It is light, well laid out and fabulous for relaxing inside and out. The bedrooms are laid out such that there is a double bedroom downstairs with an ensuite shower room (away from the noise of the sitting room and kitchen) and three bedrooms upstairs, including the master which has an ensuite with a bath and over head shower, and two twin rooms sharing a separate shower room.

The villa includes:

  • 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles and 2 twins. 2 ensuite bathrooms and shared shower room and a separate downstairs toilet
  • Open plan kitchen and dining area, leading onto an outside terrace with luxurious seating and a dining table
  • BBQ
  • Parking for 2 cars
