Villa Lykos is situated in the centre of the National park called Plitvice Lakes. Villa Lykos is named after greek word lykos which means wolfbecause our region, Lika, is land of wolves and because of the same reason has that name.
The house is situated in the nature and you can only be disturbed by sounds of nature like bird's songs, bees, etc.
An ensured parking lot is near the house. The biggest lake called Kozjak is only 1 km far away from our house. If you go for a walk that lasts only 20 minutes, you can get to the point where we start our route through Plitvice lakes. A bus stop is near our house, so you can come here even without your vehicle.
