Sisters-Homes Vidovići 9

This townhouse in the center of the mountain village Vidovici on the Croatian island of Cres is more than 200 years old. First it was a stable, later it was extended into a residential house and even used as a small chapel. Now it has been converted into a holiday home. You enter the house via the terrace on the first floor and step directly into the open living room with a kitchen and dining area. A steel staircase leads down to the ground floor with a living-cum-bedroom and bathroom. Because the former cellar was not originally connected with the upper floors, the room allows separate access to the street. An open staircase connects the first and the second floors. Here you will find an anteroom with access to the sleeping gallery under the roof as well as a bedroom with an en suite bathroom. Throughout the house, modern architectural elements such as concrete and steel contrast with the fabric of the old building. The interior design follows the same principle: refurbished furniture, which dates back to the original house, has been supplemented with modern pieces.

Wir haben in diesem August mit vier Personen das wunderschöne Haus gebucht und waren vom ersten Moment an schwer begeistert. Man wohnt in einem 25 Häuser Dörfchen namens Vidovici und wohnt entspannt und absolut ruhig. Das Haus ist sehr stilvoll und mit einem sehr sicheren Händchen und guter Mischung aus Altem, Neuen und Design eingerichtet. Man wird sehr herzlich und freundlich in Empfang genommen und die Gastgeber stehen bei allen Fragen und Wünschen sofort hilfsbereit zur Verfügung. Ideal für Gäste, die das Besondere suchen – ich denke, so eine colle Location findet man kein zweites Mal auf Cres oder gar in ganz Kroatien. Man kann wunderbar wandern und in dem türkisblauen Meer schwimmen – aus unseer Erfahrung nur zu empfehlen!

Amazing Jaw dropping place, host, and view!
The white stone house is idyllic nestled in the dry rocky hills over looking the Adriatic sea.

Reasons to stay:

First, the house is personal, spacious, and spotless, with details of antiques and clean lines, yet refreshingly modern. The open lay out and high end amenities, down to the books and sheets were thoughtfully planned out and exceeded our expectations. By the house is a traditional tiny chapel and historical stone fences among the rough terrain. Just getting to the house is an adventure. We had the feeling of privacy and timelessness with its serpentine road up from the main street. There is also an open air terrace we used for family gatherings and feasts. Here we listened to ambient music or the cicadas, felt the Bora/ Maestral North breeze and breath taking views. A few times at night we star gazed by the fire pit. Quite memorable and inspiring experience…

Second, our host Natasha was always cheerful, gracious, and attentive to our needs. She even surprised us with local cheese and bread. Her twin sister Ingrid and brother in law were equally hospitable and understanding with a wealth of stories. Both ladies are very professional and creative, putting their heart into their homes. All along, we felt like they really cared about us.

Third, the island Cres is set aside from the others for nature lovers with hidden beach coves, wrinkled stoney cliffs, glittering olive groves, and sheep pastures. It prides itself as more secluded than other big islands. It is an eco-island which recycles and is harmonious with nature. Furthermore, it is home where the massive Condor/ Griffin vultures soar. Historically, people say Jason and the Golden Fleece adventures took place here and more recently the bronze athletic Apoxymenos was discovered.

To conclude, we highly recommend staying and already encouraged our friends to come. Thank you Natasha and family for sharing your home, heart, and vision.

Wir waren im August 2017 zu Gast im Haus Nr.9 und haben uns hier sofort sehr wohlgefühlt.
Innen , wie außen, alles sehr geschmackvoll und liebevoll gestaltet.
Wer das besondere sucht, wird es hier finden.
Wir werden sicher wieder kommen.
Natasa und Ingrid haben uns auch ganz herzlich empfangen und während des Aufenthaltes mit Tipps und kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten verwöhnt. Nochmals lieben Dank für die schönen und erholsamen Tage.

Wir, eine Familie mit 2 Kindern im Alter von 11 und 13 Jahren, durften als erste Gäste das Haus Nr. 9 für neun Tage bewohnen.
Schon beim ersten Eintreten haben wir uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt. Alles ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet.
Die schönen Badebuchten sind schnell zu erreichen, aber auch eine Wanderung über die Insel ist sehr zu empfehlen.
Wer einen stilvollen Urlaub abseits der Touristenströme sucht, für den ist Vidovici das ultimative Reiseziel.
