Charming stone Villa Silva is situated along the Makarska Riviera, above the popular seaside resort Tučepi and just below impressive mountain Biokovo. Villa is overlooking the Adriatic sea and you can feel complete peace and old Dalmatian village atmosphere, away from the summer crowd but close enough to gorgeous beaches, nightlife and cultural events.

Tučepi is located on the Adriatic coast of Dalmatia known as Makarska riviera, just about 5 km southeast of Makarska. Gornje Tučepi is a village above Tučepi and a place where all the people of Tučepi used to grow food and live before the tourism started in the Makarska riviera in the 60’s. With its unique position, Tučepi offers numerous vacation possibilities and has become a favourite tourist destination throughout Croatia and Europe. Until the earthquake of 1962, the majority of Tučepi inhabitants were living in scattered small villages like, Podpec, Čovići, Srida Sela, Šimići and Podstup at the lower foot of the mountain Biokovo.
We had a wonderful family break at Josko's!
He is a wonderful host and really goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and to share local tips.
The house is very nicely decorated - high quality finishes and spotlessly clean!
The bakery, which is now the BBQ area was hugely popular - a novel way cook.
There's plenty of different seating areas so you can enjoy time as a family, or escape and have some quiet time if needed!!
The little sleepy village the villa is located in is charming and interesting to explore - the little cats running the village were incredibly adorable.
Thanks so much for hosting us Josko!
It's hard to say enough good things about our stay at villa "Silva" and what a great host Josko was to me and my extended European family.
We just returned from 7 days in Covici, the small picturesque village overlooking Tucepi where the villa is located. The house is beautiful and a perfect balance of modern amenities and classic Dalmatian style.
Josko was an amazing host and always made himself available for every request from helping with dinner reservations to helping with reserving taxis for the group. When we arrived he greeted us with a beautiful platter of cheese, meats and fruits. He came personally every morning to clean the pool and to check that we had everything we needed.
Highly recommended and we look forward to our next trip to Covici!
My family of 7 spent a week at Josko's in mid August and the stay was a highlight of our trip to Croatia. (5 adults, 1 college, 1 high school) Josko was the absolute best host you could want. On our arrival into Tucepi, he met us at the nearby grocery so we could follow him to the home. That was necessary as the first time finding it would have been difficult otherwise. He had prepared a bread, meat and cheese plate for us, and had homegrown vegetables for us too. The house was spotless, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone and anything you need was provided! The property is very unique and even had an outdoor "house" with a stone BBQ that we used for 2 nights meals, and Josko explained that at one time, the BBQ "house" was the village bakery - exposed brick is remaining. The outdoor space for dining was beautiful with 2 large tables and mature trees and grapevines. We spent every night we were there outside eating meals, playing cards, drinking Josko's homemade wine and enjoying the serenity of the countryside. We also used the pool almost every day and Josko kept it clean throughout our stay. Sometimes unplanned experiences occur that make a vacation even more special than planned activities. The "neighbors" had a traditional Croatian gathering "Klapa", a form of cappella singing with a group of friends (~40) including musical instruments and they welcomed us to their gathering, sharing food, wine and friendship - even singing Happy Birthday to me! Josko made EXCELLENT recommendations for dinners and made our reservations for us (Ranc was amazing and we actually went twice! In an outdoor setting under olive groves). There's a walking path down to the coast where shops, restaurants, beaches, water sports are easily accessible. It's about a 20 minute walk down - much more effort to walk up so some of us called a cab to come back. I highly recommend Josko's place and happy to be contacted if anyone wants more details. Thank you Josko!!
