Unique antistress oasis Villa Antiqua with heated swimming pool – Roman & Venetian Heritage – Home office



Do you want to enjoy a lovely family villa in ancient city of Osor, the antistress oasis of the islands Cres and Lošinj, one of the most beautiful parts of Adriatic Sea in Croatia?

Then visit Villa Antiqua!

The villa has the surface area of approximately 130 m2 and 660 m2 of garden area with heated swimming pool and Hot Tub. An antic wall from Venetian era (height of about 3,5 m) forms the eastern boundary courtyard and is a part of city walls, while the southern border is an antic wall from Roman era which is also a part of city walls. With regard to the walls, vegetation and its location, the property offers a great privacy. You can enjoy the shade of the old pine trees, watch the bay and the sail boats just few meters away, or you can just walk to the beach which is only 250 meters away.
 
The renovated villa provides 130m² of living space and can accommodate seven people. The villa consists of a kitchen, living room, bedroom, hallway and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms, a bathroom and a hallway on the upper floor. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a hob, oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, coffee machine and ice maker machine. The living room has a dining and a sitting area. Wood for the fireplace is provided free of charge. The first bedroom has a king's size bed (160 x 200cm). The second bedroom has king's size bed (160 x 200cm). The third has double bed (180x200cm), sofa bed for 2 persons (160x200cm) and extra bed. In addition, a cot is also available. The two modern bathrooms have a shower and toilet. All the rooms in the villa can be heated and air conditioned. There is a free wireless high speed internet connection.
 
If you like to hike there is the mountain Osorčica with the highest peak of 588 meters.
 
Interesting fact is that once the islands Cres and Lošinj were actually one island named Lošinj, before Osor channel was dug. Nowdays Osor lies at channel that separates islands Cres and Lošinj. Islands are connected with a rotating bridge. The channel was build by Romans to make sailing possible through the channel. Osor is an open-air museum where you can find ancient town square surrounded by beautiful buildings from XV and XVI centuries, Bishop's palace, cathedral and bell tower from the early Christian era. Through the town you can encounter many sculptures left behind by the great croatian artist Ivan Meštrović. During the summer months the town becomes open-air stage for Osor Musical Event, which has been held every year in the summer since 1976.

Beautiful nature and peaceful environment are granted all the time...

Location description : The Osor portage, which is supposed to have been much wider than it is today, has been inhabited since prehistoric times due to its strategic importance, as evidenced by numerous finds, especially near the town of Osor. In the antique era Osor was an important transit station that provided shelter for ships, which at the time sailed mainly along the coast.
It is worth noting that Osor is one of our oldest cities and the first one recorded in written history. Furthermore, the historical Amber route passed through here and connected our coast with the Baltic. The name is probably of Illyrian origin and its transformation can be traced since Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Latin records to modern day Italian and Croatian terms: Apsoros, Apsorus, Opsare, Absortium, Osero and Osor.
Some archaeologists believe ships overcame the Osor portage by sailing or being towed across the coast in the shallow water to the east of the city, and that the area was covered later. This is concluded from the composition of the city walls and the fact that Osor does not have a port except in the Bijar Bay to the northwest and the muddy shallow Jaz to the southeast where salt pans used to lay.
Very early, probably in the Roman period, to the west, in solid rock beneath the city walls, a tunnel was dug by the name Cavata (Croatian Kavuada), today Kavanela. This canal was the cause of the great ascent of Osor and later its decline.
Osor was first a Liburnian settlement which collaborated with Greeks. The Romans took it over 167. BC and fortified it following the Illyrian wall line. The discovered remains from the Roman period include the remains of the main streets (kardo and dekumanus), public buildings, sewers and water supply and a necropolis across the canal, on the Lošinj side. It is believed this was the most prosperous time of the city as remnants of Illirians, the new Roman-Italian population, and many emigrants from the east, mostly prominently Greeks, lived there. Even the writer Alberto Fortis wrote that the town had 20 000 inhabitants, which is probably very exaggerated, but it is possible that several thousand lived in the Roman Apsorus.
During the 5th century Osor was briefly under the rule of Ostrogoths, and with the beginning of the 6th century it was annexed to Dalmatia thus becoming a part of the Byzantine Empire. It is believed a diocese was founded in Osor around that time (530. AD on the synod in Salona). The city was raided by the Saracens in 841. and again, even worse, by the Genovese during the 14th century. In the 10th century Osor recognized the authority of Croatian rulers, in 1000. AD it came under Venetian rule, and in 1105. the Croatian-Hungarian king recognized it as a city with corresponding privileges.

    “As a Croatia lover, this was our most beautiful holiday home
    Positive: Everything was just perfect, the house was well equipped, the garden was lovingly designed, the pool was a dream, the sea on the doorstep, very nice, warm landlords, all in all a wonderful experience and we'd love to come back ❤️”

    Comment from property owner Company e-domizil AG:
    “Dear family Haas,

    Thank you for visiting Villa Antiqua and for leaving the villa so clean. It was like you hadn't spent your time in the villa and above all we can't believe everything was so clean even though you had three dogs.
    It was a great pleasure spending time with you, sharing drinks and chatting.

    You are very welcome and invited to visit us again in the future.

    Kind regards from hot and sunny Osor,
    Sonja & Ivica” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “The house is 100% recommendable! Location is great and the place is small, quiet and for people who are looking for just the right thing!
    Pros: The house was great! Enough space for 2 families and 2 dogs. The landlord had a lot of good tips regarding activities and restaurant recommendations and was eager to answer all questions, answered quickly and helpful to make our stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible.
    Negative: The processing via E Domizil. I realize that at the time of covid 19 there were a lot of inquiries, but before our vacation, inquiries were neither answered by phone nor email. When the travel warning came up during our stay, I was told on a phone call that there is currently nothing they can do for us. We would stay at our expense in the event of an early departure, but we could send an email and hope for a goodwill solution or negotiate a solution directly with the landlord even though we had booked through E Domizil. The service from edomizil did not seem customer-oriented and I will certainly only inquire directly with the landlord and not take the detour via an agency from which I would not have any advantage.”

    Comment from property owner Company e-domizil AG:
    “Thank you for the wonderful review and visit of Unique Antistress Oasis Villa Antiqua. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and we look forward to seeing you next year or next. We have done our best to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one.

    We are very sad to hear that given the circumstances and the COVID-19 situation, you did not receive adequate support from E-domizil. We hope that E-domizil will become more flexible in the future and that it will improve customer service in the near future.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German.
