There are different choices to get to Hvar Island and StariGrad, the village where Villa Mjesto is located.
Arriving by air:
The most direct and easy route is to fly to Split and get the ferry from there direct to Stari Grad. These large ferries take cars and foot passengers, and run from Split to Stari Grad, mooring just outside the town, three or four times a day. The journey lasts approx one hour and 40 minutes, it’s very easy. There are five sailings a day depending on the season.
Already in Croatia:
If you are already driving or travelling in Croatia, ferries can be taken from Split, Rijeka (Fiume) Zadar or Dubrovnik to the island of Hvar. You can bring your car or simply come by foot on the ferry.
Another option is to drive up the coast from Dubrovnik. It takes approximately 2.5 hours by car to Drvenik located at the southern end of Hvar Island. Here you can cross on a ferry to Sucuraj (see timetable on www.jadrolinija.hr ) and then you can drive one adventurous but very scenic hour up the Island to StariGrad.
If you are driving or travelling from Italy, you can leave daily with an overnight ferry service from the ports of Ancona, Pescara and Bari to Split or Starigrad, on the island of Hvar.
During the summer, some Italian hydrofoil lines offer a direct service from Pescara and Ancona to Hvar Island, port of Starigrad.
