Olive Oil Immersions in Villa Nai 3.3

Can you imagine the perfect combination of wild, untouched nature made of 500 hundred-year-old olive groves by the Adriatic sea with waves splashing its shores; and a perfectly drawn geometrical blueprint? You don’t have to imagine anymore. With the creation of Architect Nikola Bašić, Villa Nai 3.3 was born on Dugi Otok Island. A property immersed in nature, unpretentious just like all other beauties adorning this island…

Wondering why there’s a 3.3 in its name? 

Snowfall lends itself to the unusual name of the property. Dugi Otok has 3.3 days of snowfall annually, which is the perfect amount to produce a bountiful olive harvest, and the Morović family’s globally multi-award-winning olive oil Nai 3.3.

Villa Nai 3.3 sits in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, equidistant from Venice and Dubrovnik, two must-visit destinations. It’s moored in a haven on the island of Dugi Otok, the heart of Dalmatia, near the village of Žman. It offers a luxurious stay only a few minutes away from Telašćica Nature Park, its beaches and cliffs, olive groves, and Aleppo pine and oak forests.

The second day is reserved for a private boat tour of the Kornati Islands, the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean, with an olive oil tasting onboard guided by Dr. Celletti. A guided visit to Telašćica Nature Park (the largest and deepest natural harbor on the Adriatic) is reserved for Day 3, where we will delve into the valuable flora and fauna and geological and geomorphological phenomena. But that’s not all – Day 3 includes an exclusive live performance of Tovareća Mužika (local traditional horn players procession, under UNESCO protection as non-material cultural heritage), followed by olive-related activities guided by Gino Celletti at the hotel.

Day 4 features a private boat tour of Krka National Park and its famous waterfalls, where Nikola Tesla established the first hydroelectric plant in Europe during the “War of Currents”, with a 1-hour Monocultivar olive oil lesson by Gino Celletti on the ride there. The penultimate day of the trip includes a guided visit to the northernmost place on Dugi Otok Island, Veli Rat (the tallest lighthouse in the Adriatic), and the famous Strašna Peć cave, which in 1904 was visited by the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph.
