Villa Olivia, Zizanj Island


Create your dream car-free island holiday on this small green paradise. Villa Olivia is a secluded villa that ensures a high level of privacy and tranquility to its guests. It's a place where you can enjoy the magic sunset while you forget everything else; say goodby to the metropolitan traffic, smog and columns of cars.  Private villa, nestled among olive groves with stunning sea views, is located only 8 km off mainland and 30 km from Zadar Airport. Area is quite popular destination for navigators and regattas, but the island is still untouched by mass tourism.  

Zizanj island is located in northern Dalmatia between mainland and Kornati islands, surrounded by the Adriatic Sea and just 20 minutes boat ride from town Biograd. Thus being an ideal starting point for exploring both the north and south Adriatic. With the blue waters, magical sunsets  and the peaceful ambience, this is about the closest you can get to having your own private sanctuary, well away from the stresses of everyday life.

Villa Olivia is a beach-front estate with its own motor boat, jetty, private beach and pool. The estate boat will bring you to villa on arrival day and return to mainland on departure day as this service is included in rental price. If you wish to use villa boat for more boat trips, this can easily be arranged at extra cost with the skipper.

The offered property has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and is composed of two sleeping units.  One part has 3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms,  living room and fully functional kitchen. Outdoor is a terrace leading to another part of villa with 2 bedrooms and only one bathroom, living room and its own fully equipped kitchen.  Italian kitchens have all modern appliances you need to prepare delicious meals (oven, microwave, bread making machine, dishwasher, coffee machine, fridge/refrigerator). Each living room has a sofa bed which can be used as a sleeping sofa as well.

Outside spot is 350 sqm terrace with a BBQ area and outdoor dining table.  Only few steps away is located private swimming pool area (pool size 10m x 4m) with sun loungers and a sprawling view of Kornati islands, where colorful sailboats usually play offshore.  Spend the day on the beach, snorkelling, in the pool  or go island hopping. When come evening, gather everyone for an alfresco dinner served with sea views.

Being marooned on an island in a private villa is the ultimate in freedom, with endless possibilities: have a romantic week with your loved one, hole up with siblings for only family time,  treat your office or group to a Sailing teambuilding adventure, book some sailing excursions for your clients, etc. Privacy is everything on Zizanj Island, but when it’s time to mingle, Biograd and Zadar towns offer museums, culture and dining. All of it enhanced by the knowledge that your  terrace refuge is never far away.

Getting car-free holidays in Croatia it’s really easy, relaxing and affordable.  Split the property 10 ways for the family or friends reunion in paradise, and everybody's contribution is less than 150 EUR a night in summer period. If you want a back-to-nature escape, Villa Olivia is definitely the right place.
