About our home

Holiday apartment at the south coast of the Dalmatian island of Vir. This area of Vir is more quiet than the center of island and north coast facing island of Pag and magnificient panorama of Velebit mountains on the mainland. Our apartment is simply but functionally furnished, has all modern amenities. It can sleep 6 persons. Ideal is either 2 adults or a family of 4 with smaller children. Non-simultaneous exchange appreciated but not crucial. Best time to visit May to October. The selection of activities available is very wide - of course the main is swimming but you can also use our 2 mountain bikes to explore the island, you can do long walks along the sea, use our boat in case you posses boat license.


More about us

  1. We are Maryna and Jan and have met over 12 years ago. We are in our mid fifties and both love travelling, trekking, skiing, bycicling, music, good food and wine. On top of that Maryna is very fond of movies and theatre so Jan starts to learn more of this as well. The apartment offered is our summer home so non simultaneous exchange is no problem, even preferred. We are also very flexible with the length of the exchange - from a couple of days up to couple of weeks. We can also offer exchange a large country house about 1 hour drive eastwards of Prague, Czech republic, located in a small rural community in between forests and fields. Both of these properties are available for an exchange as well. Please ask for details and pictures.
    We have done over 10 exchanges within the last 10 years and have always enjoyed very much - it is a great way to travel.
    We will take proper care of your home, same as we await from our guests.

  2. Maryna is a lawyer who has discovered the world of fine wines over a decade ago and made a change in her career and now is running her own wine importing Company. Jan has foreign trade background and runs his wine producing project in the Czech Republic. We both have really enjoyed our Diploma in Wines and Spirits studies that we have completed in 2012. So we may say that wine is in our blood :-)
