An idyllic holiday villa in a superb location, overlooking the harbour of the unspoilt, vibrant and historic town of Stari Grad, on Hvar Island, Dalmatia, Croatia, said to be one of the most beautiful islands in the world. From the villa it’s a stroll to anywhere in the village with its bars, restaurants, and shops. There are safe beaches in walking distance and and many more around the Island. You can explore the countryside, the local villages, and the many attractions all nearby.
Villa Mjesto is spacious, private, and full of light. It has been beautifully restored by its New Zealand owner. There are four large bedrooms, three with large double beds and one with two queen single beds. There is plenty of space with two lounges, one upstairs and one downstairs, four bathrooms. It is also easy to accommodate children in the downstairs lounge and there’s a cot for a baby. The villa is fully furnished and has all the equipment you need. The upstairs terrace overlooks the Stari Grad harbour and village, one of the oldest and most attractive in the Adriatic. There’s also a downstairs terrace with gardens surrounding the entire property. The villa has two parking spaces.
Stari Grad (Pharos) is the oldest town in Croatia and one of the most ancient in the Adriatic. The villa overlooks the harbour. There is constant activity on and around the water. A pedestrianised quayside extends right around the harbour, making for delightful strolling and cycling from the villa.
It is the perfect place for a Croatia family holiday. The beaches are safe for swimming and an easy walk from the villa. Stari Grad has a large selection of bars and restaurants. Guests tell us they love to sit outside with a coffee, a drink or an ice cream and watch life go by – locals and visitors enjoying the sun, fisherman going to and fro on their boats, and beautiful yachts coming in and out, mooring in the harbour.
Stari Grad was founded by the ancient Greeks in 384 BC, the same year when greek philosopher Aristotle was born, and the Greeks from the island of Paros in Agean sea settled the village, naming it Pharos. The agricultural plains next to the village are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town is surrounded with pine tree forest and cooled with summer breeze (maestral). On hot summer days Stari Grad is one of the rare Dalmatian places where the air is fresh and sleep refreshing.
