How many of you have been to Prapatna? A wonderful village on the northern coast.
If there was an award for a foreign non-resident of the island who had visited the most offbeat places on Hvar, my vote would go to the team at Go Hvar, who are providing some really insightful posts into some of the lesser know aspects of the island and island life.
How many of you have been to Prapatna, for example? A wonderful spot, as Mara describes…
When we first started looking at properties on Hvar, one of the houses that really caught my imagination was in Prapatna. It was a gorgeous stone house with walled garden, right on the seafront. Sure, it needed a bit of work, but boy, what a stunning location!
In the end, because the practicalities of life still have to be considered (sigh), we didn’t go for this place, but I still enjoy the beauty of it on a summer afternoon. Prapatna is a tiny community in a peaceful cove, somewhat to the east of Jelsa. The road in looks quite steep as it branches off the main Jelsa-Sucuraj road, but is actually not bad. Four-wheel drive in winter might be a bit of an advantage, though!
