Named after a beautiful flower that just loves the bright, full sunlight, this lovely villa offers a great base to soak up the warm Mediterranean atmosphere and explore this part of Croatian paradise. The well-kept spacious garden with manicured lawns dotted with mature trees and a welcoming large swimming pool with an attractive sun terrace offers a delightful first impression, while the interior more than lives up to its billing.
Tastefully designed throughout with a mix of modern and vintage furnishings, eye-catching designer chandeliers and large windows inviting a lot of natural light and fresh air inside, the house has a warm, relaxing feeling encompassing both traditional and modern tastes. Dominating the ground floor is a stunning, elongated room divided into an inviting living area with a cosy fireplace, and a stylish dining area with a large table that comfortably seats twelve for dinner. A kitchen designed for serious cooks opens onto a vast covered patio where the guests can serve anything from a simple breakfast to a gourmet dinner, the abundance of fresh produce available in this area offering plenty of inspiration. The five bright and cosy bedrooms, each with the benefit of a flat-screen TV and private ensuite bathroom, are distributed over the upper floor. A special treat of this special property is a lovely eco-garden from which the guests can pick their own seasonal vegetables, as well as a garden house next to the main house with an additional fully-fitted kitchen. A perfectly placed summer dining area with a stone built-in barbecue can also be found at the end of the garden and if you want to do a bit more then swim a few laps in the private pool or just lie in the shade and soak up the surroundings, there is a fitness area, as well as three bikes to round off the action. Villa Portulaca is undoubtedly a great holiday home that will appeal to large families or groups of friends in search of relaxed outdoor living and a touch of Mediterranean chic.
