The villa is equipped with wood furnace, SAT TV, DVD player, Radio with cd and mp3 player, ice maker machine, espresso machine and air conditioning in all rooms. The villa is right across the small marina where you can place your sailboats and bigger powerboats. The villa is accessible by car or boat.

If you like to hike there is the mountain Osorčica with the highest peak of 588 meters. Osor also offers you the possibility to hunt wild boar, deers, woodcock and wild pigeons.

Interesting thing about hunting ground is that there isn't closed season for wild boar through the year.

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 from owner

The Primorje-Gorski Kotar County region

Lošinj, island of vitality. If we were to say that islands have a personality, and they do, then Lošinj would definitely belong to those special ones that have created their offer on the basis of a long tradition, beautiful nature, clean air with healing properties and a rich tourism offer. The pleasant climate has attracted numerous crowned heads who visited Lošinj for the purpose of improving their health. Lošinj boasts first quality air rich in aerosols - a true outdoor aromatherapy. People became aware of the beneficial island climate at the end of the 19th century. The natural and cultural heritage of the Island of Lošinj is very rich. Small churches, monasteries, Renaissance buildings, basilicas and ancient remnants are found across the island. The museum and other spaces offer you an opportunity to have a peek into the world of the past, artistic expression and other beautiful features. The discovery of a precious statue of Apoxyomenos, the Greek athlete, found in the Lošinj underwater area bears witness to the rich cultural life. The attention of the visitors is also attracted by the town of Osor – an outdoor museum making an ideal setting for the Osor Musical Evenings (Osorske glazbene večeri) during the summer. On five islands of the Lošinj archipelago, there are maintained routes in the length of 220 kilometers, and the waters are suitable for diving and sailing as well as other water sports.

Osor

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 according to 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.
