The prize will be awarded to one person who shares the same name as one half of Love Island’s winning couple.

As the winner of the show won’t be announced until the final episode airs – expected to be 23rd February – entries are currently open to anyone who shares a namesake with any of the current Love Island contestants, all of whom are in the running for winning the show. So if your name is one of the below, get entering now and you could be in with a chance of winning this luxury holiday if your namesake Love Island contestant wins the show:

  • Paige
  • Finley
  • Siannise
  • Luke
  • Natalia
  • Callum
  • Molly
  • Mike
  • Priscilla
  • Jess
  • Ched
  • Shaughna

And remember, new contestants are likely to still walk through the villa doors before the series ends – remember last year’s winner Greg? – so if your namesake isn’t already in there, keep an eye out for someone with your name entering the villa over the next week too.

Once the final episode has aired, entries will be narrowed down to those sharing a namesake with the couple crowned Love Island champions, and a winner will be chosen at random.

Key Experiences Include

Tomic Winery, Hvar

Tomic Winery, Hvar Island

This fabulous new winery is situated in Jelsa, a small coastal town with a long winemaking tradition. They produce between 130,000 and 150,000 bottles a year, constantly enhancing the production of red, white and rosé wines. They pride themselves on the production of their signature wine, ‘Prošek’ – the original Dalmatian desert wine made from selected and dried grapes of the highest quality local varieties. The tasting venue is buried in stone below the winery and modelled on an ancient Roman dining room.

This wine boutique is based in the wine cellar of the charming and renovated family house, in the old town center and you will be sure to taste some of the Croatia’s finest wines during this tour.

Lipanovic Wines

Lipanovic Winery in Vis

Visit this famous winery in the tranquil island of Vis and get to sample the delicious wines from the Lipanović family, within the wine cellar, on the edge of the main town, surrounded by gorgeous rolling countryside. The winemaking tradition of the island was implanted when the first Lipanović arrived on the island and planted a vine.  Production is not based on quantity, but towards the superior grape quality, and with that, quality wine. With 23,000 bottles of annual production, this local wine can not compare to the big producers, but numerous awards justify the quality of these wines.

Our friendly hosts will show you some of the wines, such as the Kurteloška, Palaruša, Palagružonka, Glavanjuša and you will have a chance to sample some of Croatia’s

Ston oysters

Oyster Harvesting in Ston

We take an enjoyable trip to the mainland with a visit to the fortified fishing village of Ston, near Slano. Here you’ll be able to gaze up at its medieval ramparts before taking a traditional local boat to an authentic oyster farm. You will learn about the village’s most famous delicacy and taste a selection of natural, freshly caught delicious oysters and mussels.

Of course, this will be washed down with the local wine and homemade ‘rakia’ (local brandy) too.
