Some reviews follow:


I came to Vis in 2007 to complete work I had been struggling with for months. I found here what I needed to focus and move through the writing. Then again in summer 2009 to plan and commence a major project I found all the elements that I needed. Among these elements are: the embracing geography of the bay on which the town of Vis sits, it's architecture and friendly yet reserved people, and the clarity of light and air, and the crystal water of the Adriatic. There are no discos or clubs, no noisy party life at any time of the year. This mix allows another kind of rhythm to dominate which I find extremely supportive.

If you need a place to be quite, to get in touch with your inner self - for artistic or other reasons - Vis will do it for you. If Vis were a person I wouldn't be able to thank him/her enough!

From one writer to another I can personally and wholeheartedly recommend the small island of Vis as an excellent place to work, or for an artist's retreat. One can find solitude in the villages, or gentle stimulation at the edge of the slow-paced town. Both have served me well during the past 6 weeks. I've appreciated the beauty, the non-intrusive locals, and the Adriatic sea when I needed to clear my head. My accommodation was simple and comfortable, with an ideal space in which to work. In my experience of the Mediterranean Vis is unique, and would server well to uplift any (creative) spirit.
