Private Chef

If you really want to spoil yourself at your visit to Villa Lava, few things beat having a private chef come cook for you and your family at the house.

The process is simple.

  • Request the dates and meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) that you would like to be served.
  • The chef will send over a suggested menu for the meals for your approval.
  • On the day of the meal, the chef will arrive with fresh, restaurant-quality ingredients and will begin to serve you and your family.

Below you can find an example of what the menu might look like. The menu below was prepared by Chef Frane. After working for years at restaurants in Split, Frane has shifted his focus to cater to houses and yachts in the region.
