“In their own words..”

Beautiful property!

This Villa is the most relaxing place I have stayed. The view from the multiple terrraces is incredible and the swimming pool was so refreshing! Ann Myriam, the host, was absolutely wonderful, she went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. We really got a feel for Šipan and all the beautiful the island has to offer, whilst totally relaxing. Everything in this property has been thought about, from the various plants in the gardens to the linen sheets! We would love to return next year!

Highly recommended!

The magnificent Ghetaldi villa was our location for a girls reunion of high school friends. We could not have dreamt a more beautiful location to bring us back together, but at the same time offering each of us privacy because of its beautiful terraces and many rooms. The island and the sea bring fun activities and great restaurants, as well as the quiet beaches and walks we all needed. We would highly recommend it not only for families but also for groups of friends.
