An idyllic Mediterranean holiday home
The villa has been stylishly refurbished by its New Zealand owner with 4 large bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It is furnished with everything you need for a fantastic holiday. There is a terrace upstairs and one downstairs, two spacious lounges, a large kitchen upstairs and smaller one downstairs, dining tables inside, and on the terrace, with a barbecue.
This luxury home offers plenty of different spaces for you, your family or your friends to relax. It is safe and well set up for children. The views of the marina are simply beautiful whether you are enjoying breakfast on the terrace, or cooking your barbeque in the evening as the sun sets. There is constant activity, and you can watch the fishing boats come in and out or yachts tie up in the marina. Villa Mjesto sits on a large, private plot with parking, plus it has a big garden where you can pick figs, pomegranates and lemons.
The house overlooks the harbour in the lovely, vibrant and historic town of StariGrad, on Hvar Island, Dalmatia, Croatia, one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is a few minutes’ stroll to bars, restaurants, and beaches.
The beaches are safe and clean, with choices in StariGrad on both sides of the marina. You can also cycle or drive to the many other beaches nearby. See Things to do. (link)
There are many coffee bars, bars and restaurants, a great fresh fruit and vegetable market, and a fish market operates in the early morning. There is a selection of supermarkets and lots of specialist shops with clothes, holiday gear, local souvenirs, delicious ice creams, and organic foods and wine. Everything is a short walk away.
StariGrad was founded by the ancient Greeks in 384BC and they called it Pharos. The town has a UNESCO protected area, and nearby the agricultural plane is the oldest living example of Roman agriculture in the world, also with UNESCO protected sites.
Hvar town is a 15 minute drive on the other side of the Island if you want glamour and more action. It is the St Tropez of Croatia where you can enjoy seeing the super yachts and celebrities, or hang out with a cocktail at the fun Hulahula bar.
Nearby are many quaint villages, each with their own particular charm. They can be reached by cycle, some people hire scooters, or you can hire a car. You can also hire boats. A magical day visit from Hvar is to the beautiful island of Palmizana, by water taxi or boat.
To get to Hvar you arrive and leave from Split, a World Heritage City and a vibrant port. Its old town is full of shops and restaurants and bars, the famous Diocletian Palace, and a riva where you can enjoy a glass of local wine and watch the world go by.
From Split you can easily visit Dubrovnik, only three hours away to the South. Ferries can take you to the many different Islands around Hvar including Brac, Korcula and Vis.
