What else can I say?

Maybe just that I’m happy to live in my beautiful country with the most beautiful Mediterranean sea, the Adriatic. In Croatia, I’m glad that we have more than 1000 islands, even if there are more uninhibited, like the Kornati archipelago, a true inspiration for Villa Nai 3.3.
I’m so proud of one of the greatest architects today, Mr. Nikola Bašić, and I would like to congratulate the owners and investors Nives i Goran Morović for being brave and patient and made such a wonderful place; amazing Villa Nai 3.3.
