We visited Villa Solo for 6 nights. We were a group of 12 women and use 4 rooms all together.
The villa located in a beautiful green aria.
The owners are charming and so helpful.
The rooms are perfect! Clean and comfortable, very well equipped, and with lovely view.
The pool and the garden are amazing...
The lake is few minutes walking distance and it's a great place for walking and swimming...
You hear it all the time - "it's a home from home". No apologies for saying that phrase does not do justice to the awesome Villa Solo. The building itself is pure quality; no corners cut, no cheap option, designed and built by its owner Mladen and his son Pero. Even the furniture is top quality.
Then you have Mladen and his wonderful family. Mladen is the inspiration, the driving force. His wife Jasna is called "the General" because of the way she keeps it all under control. Their son Pero works so hard, you wonder where he finds the time to be a magnificent host. If you are staying for more than a week, Pero will cook you a traditional BBQ meal - worth the holiday price alone. Finally you have Pero's son Stipan. Teenage boys are simply not supposed to be this nice, helpful and mature!
The villa is in the tiny hamlet Peracko Blato just outside Ploce. It is an idyllic setting but within comfortable reach of Split, wonderful Dubrovnik and even Mostar. If you go in the right summer weeks, Mladen will make sure you get some of his homegrown figs which are the best you will ever taste. He also has other fruits growing around the house. Nearby you will find some fabulous interlinked lakes. Pero loaned us his two kayaks and we spent several days navigating the lakes, swimming, diving into the secret, hidden freshwater spring and drinking in the lakeside bar.
During the day you can also walk, play tennis, swim in the villa's immaculate pool or drive to one of the many local towns. Ask nicely and Pero might even tell you how to get to the secret secluded beach!
To sum up, if I can't keep Mladen, Jansa, Pero and Stipan to be my own family, I would be honoured to call them friends. Their homemade cherry brandy is the perfect way to end every day!
This was without question one of the very best holidays we have ever had. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Do yourself and your family a huge favour and go as soon as you can. You couldn't wish for more generous hosts - we were genuinely sad to leave this wonderful place.

Villa solo is situated in a naturally pretty rural location - easy to find and access. Great views abound - don't forget your camera. What really made it a great week was the welcome and friendliness of Pero & his family throughout as well as some fantastic cooking and wine! Pero also made sure we knew about some less known areas worth visiting and we were not disappointed. We hope to get back sometime in the future - so much to see. Very highly recommended.
The villa is in a small rural village, away from the crowds, which is what we wanted. The apartment was just what we wanted: clean, comfortable and very friendly. The family were super friendly, they offered us food when we arrived really late and exhausted, and an endless supply of figs and their special brandy. Nothing was too much. Lots to do in the area: tennis court in the village; their swimming pool; beautiful walks; paddle boarding on the amazing fresh water lake; access to some of the best beaches, but in the evening we could eat out or eat with the others staying at the villa. All very relaxed and enjoyable.
We stayed in Villa Solo this summer and were treated so well by this kind family. They looked after us providing the kind of attention that is rare. We were given hospitalityfrom the moment we got there right to the end ie after two weeks.From the very start we were made to feel welcome. The place is gorgeous with lovely grounds and a swimming pool.the nearby lakes were gorgeous to walk around and so peaceful. The sea and more tourist resorts were nearby. We were able to meet the other families on the terrace and soon the kids had become friends and we went out together on trips. Malden his wife and Pero their son are a very special family who we will remember and revisit soon.
