- Punta is the main beach in Viganj where all the action takes place. In the afternoon when maestral winds starts to blow it is highly occupied with wind- and kite-surfers. So during strongest winds it is not advisable to swim in this area far from the beach. Swimmers and visitors observe the action from south side of the beach while north side is “reserved” for the gear. Those who wish to swim usually occupy small beaches and areas which are next to the main beach. Whole beach is fully occupied with swimmers when there is no wind. Especially families with small children will love it. You will love the beach bar where you can enjoy refreshing drinks and hide from the sun, observe the sunset or spend relaxing evening hours in company and enjoy a view over the Korcula town.
- Perna is located 2 km south from Viganj, followed by coastal road. The beach itself is very popular among families due to the small white pebble stones.

We have personally visited, tested and fallen in love with each of our house. Inclusion to our selection can’t be bought. At least one member of our team spent a few nights in all our villas, so we know every owner by its first name as well as the name of their children.
Our standards are very high. Over 70% of personally tested properties fail to make it into our selection!
We make you feel special: To us, you are not a number. We have deliberately decided to stay “small” and boutique, to avoid mass tourism and rather concentrate on excellent customer service.
Who will organize not only your holiday home and desired period, but also arrange for the boat rental, transfer, give you information of where the best restaurant in the city is, where the first hospital is and how to reach an island in combination with specific flight details.
What we tell you is 100% true. We hate making things look better. If you have small children and you want to make a reservation for a villa that has rocky beach in front of it, we will tell you that it is not ideal for the toddlers.
You are safe: We are always with you - before your holiday and during your journey and vacation you can reach us on a mobile number 24/7.Read more
