“Relaxingly Active sums the Wearactive experience up perfectly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2011

Craig and Xania have created the perfect holiday hideaway on Vis. Their experience is evident in the well put together programme of activities and they catered to the fitness needs of everyone brilliantly - from those who were experience mountain bikers to me who lagged behind the whole way then got the landrover back! The rooms are clean and simple, finished off to a high standard and the village is off the beaten track so lovely and quiet with the stunning pebble beach 5 minutes walk down the lane. We went to the beach mostly in the mornings or before/after tea and there were never more than 20 local people there - this for me was one of the best things about the holiday, you do have a reasonably long day of travelling to get to the island but it's quietness and landscape is well worth it. Don't be put off! Xania's food is amazing and even if you're not a veggie you won't miss eating meat. There are a handful of great places to eat in the village and plenty more in the marina. The best bits of this holiday for me were the non-touristy location, the beautiful scenery and beaches, kayaking through clear waters into empty coves and getting to know some great people over great food (&wine!). The bad bits: None!

My wife and I stayed with Wearactive on our honeymoon. We had never been to the Adriatic or Croatia previously. On our holidays we like to be adventurous, occasionally pamper ourselves and eat and drink well. We are also partial to an afternoon siesta.
Vis is my idyll of a sleepy Mediteranean island. From the first approach on the ferry seeing the ancient stone terraces and the stone buildings in Vis town with mountains rising behind it was a postcard picture. This is not the place to come for partying and nightclubs.
Craig picked us up in his Land Rover and drove us out of the old town (there is no "new" town) past olive groves and vineyards to their renovated stone cottage in a small village on the south west side of the island. Our first afternoon was spent swimming at the nearby beach.
My wife and I are not seasoned kayakers but kayaking sections of the coastline was beautiful - a great way to see the island. All activities are included in the nightly rate. We took a double kayak and were escorted by Craig and Xania. I would highly recommend paddling the short distance out to the green grotto and kayaking the cliffs between Komiza and Rukavac. We also spent two days cycling (both on and off road). The island roads are quiet and well maintained (a legacy of the island being a former Yugoslav army base) and the mountain biking is extremely scenic. I would also recommend taking a day trip to Bisevo to see the blue grotto and walk the island. Afternoons were usually the time for napping in the cool of the stone cottage.
Diners were alternately at the cottage or eating out. Xania is an excellent cook and eating on the cottage balcony in the evening was very romantic. Craig and Xania were able to point us in the right direction when eating out - the grilled fish and service at restaurant Calliope and the fish Peka at Roki's vineyard were outstanding.
Craig and Xania were excellent hosts who know the island and its people well. Having them show us around and give us pointers really made our stay special.
Highly recommended

We came to Vis as part of our honeymoon and stayed at the WearActive stone cottage for 5 nights. Craig and Xania made us feel immediately at home and were able to give us all the local knowledge on best places to eat/swim/snorkle and more.
They took us kayaking around the island, snorkling and cycling. This allowed us to truly experience the island. Craig even taught us some yoga, which we did on a sea cliff with the waves lapping and the sun rising.
Xania is a wonderful cook, and nights in were a lovely relaxing time to sit on the balcony and watch the sunset with a glass of local wine in hand. On nights out you are given a selection of restaurants to choose from in various locations over the island.
The only thing we regret is not being able to stay the full week !
