If you like luxury and glamour, Hvar is an excellent destination! The island is a mecca for yachters, foodies and history buffs.
The harbour in Hvar is a very busy place and makes for excellent people watching - from fishermen to the glitterati. Just sit under swaying palms, people watch, and enjoy cafe culture on Hvar's promenade. Or be the captain of your luxury yacht for the night and host the liveliest crowd in Hvar Island. But for a very special summer getaway stay in luxury Villa Hvar!
Villa Hvar was built in the Baroque period, between the years 1590 and 1612. It has been placed under the protection of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments of the Republic of Croatia for its historical value. From 2007 to 2009, the building itself and the interior courtyard/garden were reconstructed and adapted according to the instructions of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments, as well as furnished as a luxury residential building for tourism. The complex has an area of 450 m² of indoor space and a 200 m² garden. It consists of:
The main entrance with staircase and the water tank are located on the ground floor. The living room (45 m²) with a balcony door, two double rooms (27 m² and 20 m²) – each with a bathroom, hallway, WC and kitchen with dining room (35 m²) and balcony door to the interior courtyard are located on the elevated first floor.
The 200 m² garden is enclosed by a stone wall that is over two meters high. It features mostly Mediterranean vegetation (lemons, oranges, figs, lavender…). There is also a dining table for 10 people as well as garden furniture with deck chairs by the pool. There is a hallway and three double rooms (50 m², 36 m² and 25 m²) on the first floor – each with its own bathroom.
Medieval (Gothic) House
It is connected to the Baroque palace on the ground floor. The first floor houses an indoor pool (approx. 25 m²) with movable walls that can be opened, thus transforming the pool into an outdoor pool connected to the garden.
The lowest floor houses wellness facilities (40 m²) which feature: sauna, whirlpool, relaxation room, massage room, shower, WC and a small trim. Connected to this property is a wine cellar with a selection of first class Croatian and foreign wines.
