Continuing our look at the luxury end of Croatian real estate with Croatia Sotheby’s International Realty on July 4, 2017, a journey to the island of Hvar.
It is often called Croatia’s premier island, and Hvar certainly has a five-star pedigree. The sunniest island in Europe, home to organised tourism in Europe and the continent’s oldest public theatre, Hvar also has more UNESCO heritage than any other island in the world. AND it is stunning!
While many of the rich and famous are to be found in the main metropolis of Hvar Town, Hvar has an abundance of tranquility and breathtaking beauty at every turn. And for those lucky enough to has uninterrupted access and views of its fabled pristine waters, there can be few more special places on the planet.
Continuing our look at the more exclusive listings in Croatia through the eyes of the Sotheby’s Croatia portfolio, meet Villa Rustica, which is situation between two of the island’s most picturesque towns. Croatia Sotheby’s International Realty describe the property as follows:
Villa Rustica is located at the end of a small quiet bay, halfway between the town of Jelsa and Vrboska on the island of Hvar. This timeless, elegantly appointed villa that emphasizes detail and the perfect harmony of proportion and balance is set on an 836-square meter seaside plot with expansive views across pine woods to the island of Brač, Makarska, and the mountains.
The villa has three storeys and was built of solid, Hvar stone. It was specially designed to fit into the natural surroundings and to be harmonious with its environment. It has eight luxurious apartments, each with a separate entrance.
The basement consists of a generator room and includes a laundry room, boiler room and solar power system for heating water.
The apartments range from 40 to 150 square meters and consist of a kitchen, one or two bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom with toilet, and a terrace overlooking the sea and pine trees. Each apartment is luxuriously equipped with air conditioning, an LCD TV, satellite TV, and high-quality appliances. All of the apartments combine an ancient rustic style and contemporary living with astonishing custom-made furnishings and finishes.
The inspiring, cultivated garden, enriched with Mediterranean plants, includes a 30-square meter swimming pool, a sunbathing area, and two barbecues. It is an ideal place to escape from everyday life and completely enjoy nature.
The stunning, clear blue sea and a beach with sunbeds are only 30 meters away, while the partly rocky, partly gravel beach at the end of the bay offers complete privacy.
The beauty of the island of Hvar has always attracted travelers. Its beautiful unspoiled nature and the incomparable Pakleni Archipelago will inspire you with diving sites that feature caves, steep walls, and a variety of the colors of the flora and fauna of the Adriatic Sea.
The serene location of the property, where you might think the time has stopped, only several kilometers from the larger towns Jelsa and Stari Grad, as well as the proximity of Vrboska, an old fishing village with a marina, truly makes it unique. This property is best described as an oasis of nature and tranquility where you can relax and enjoy stunning sunsets, gastronomy and oenology, the chirping of crickets and the pristine nature of the Mediterranean as it once was.
