The original house was designed by the famous Croatian architect Kazimir Ostrogović, also known for the design of Josip Broz Tito's residence in Zagreb, today the official residence of the President of the Republic of Croatia. The Villa was fully refurbished and redesigned by Oskar Fleischer in 2016 when upon the foundations of the old stone house rose the imposing timeless beauty as you see it today. Sun-blessed cinematic views greet you everywhere. Yet in numbers, Villa Poseidon covers area of 1000 sqm. This includes 250 sqm of interior space, 55 sqm of a covered terrace and 100sqm of an open terrace area, 2 balconies, each 13sqm size and an infinity pool 30sqm size.
As you approach the villa, you will first reach the garage, serving mainly as a storage room, holding a kayak and seven moutnain bikes to enhance your stay. The three covered parking spaces are right next to it. From here, eleven stairs take you to the terrace and the main entrance to the villa. The terrace consist of a covered area, allowing comfortable al fresco dining for ten guests, and the additional uncovered area which embraces ten sun lounges poising around the cresent shaped heated swimming pool.
Crossing the terrace, you will reach the main entrance and as the ground floor opens up before you, on the left hand side you will see three doors. One of them is taking you into a bedroom with two single beds, the second one to a shower room while the third one hides a utility room. Standing at the door, on the right hand side, the vast expanse of the living area unflods before you.
