Located just 100m from the town centre of Jelsa, on the island of Hvar, this unique, air conditioned property with 2 private pools (14 m x 2.5m outdoor pool and circular 5m indoor heated pool) is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. Originally an old olive mill, this villa has been lovingly renovated, taking care to include original features and exposed brickwork, while modern art and bursts of colour beautifully marry the old and new elements.
Surrounded by high walls, the Mediterranean courtyard garden is peppered with palm trees, and creates a relaxing oasis, within easy reach of restaurants and shops. The large pool is ideal for lengths, before heading inside for a pamper in the heated pool and sauna. Each air conditioned bedroom enjoys its own shower room and private terrace, so this is ideal for anyone who likes their own space, before joining friends or family on the dining terrace for an alfresco meal. This villa really is in the thick of it, in the heart of the town with an open-air cinema next door during summer – not far to go for your evening entertainment!
The Island of Hvar has recently become one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the entire Adriatic. The capital town of Hvar is very popular among celebrities with their court of paparazzi and yacht travellers, as well as party and night life enthusiasts. However, families travelling with young children and teenagers equally find the island appealing for its wide offer of outdoor activities, pebbly beaches with crystal clear water, a magnificent mountainous landscape crisscrossed by hiking and cycling trails, sloping down to the coast with its dramatic coves and rocky outcrops. Both Hvar and Stari Grad, which is the main port of the island, feature a very atmospheric Medieval town centre, with narrow streets, small squares lined with old stone houses, monasteries, churches and museums. Pavement cafes, shops and restaurants line the streets and bay of Stari Grad, which is a family-oriented resort with a laidback lifestyle. Worth mentioning is a fertile plain (=hora) near Stari Grad, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with olive groves and vineyards divided by dry stone walls and country lanes of ancient Greek origin.
