In Jelsa on the northern coast of the Croatian island of Hvar, Villa Enigma is a magnificent villa which can accommodate up to 10 guests. Its heated outdoor pool and terrace offer lovely views down to the sea, with the beach just a short stroll away.

This villa provides a great balance of inviting indoor and outdoor spaces, so there is always a place to suit your mood. The stunning, semi-circular pool looks right out to sea and is lined with sun loungers and an outdoor shower.

A lovely covered dining area with a barbecue is ideal for eating and drinking, whatever the time of day and the villa’s rustic good looks are the perfect backdrops.

High ceilings lend a feeling of openness to the impressive interior living area, which includes a dining table, bar and a well-equipped kitchen. You have another stunning view of the ocean to enjoy here.

Beneath the infinity pool lies another treat, in the shape of a Finnish sauna, and wine buffs have a good selection of vintages to try in the billiards room – a nice chillout space with comfy sofas, rugged bare stone walls and wood beams.

The four bedrooms and bathrooms are similarly aesthetically pleasing, with free-standing, in-room bathtubs positioned to take advantage of the beautiful views. Large, flat-screen TVs and high-quality soft furnishings add yet more to these charming rooms.

The island is easily accessible from the mainland, with regular crossings from Split to the island’s port of Stari Grad, around 10km from Jelsa. Hvar is known to be one of the sunniest spots on the Adriatic, as well as one of the coolest – the island is a popular celebrity getaway, with large swathes of it pretty deserted.

You will find plenty going on around the centres, however, with great nightlife and top-notch cuisine among the many reasons to visit.

Characterised by its lavender fields, olive groves, secluded beaches and pretty harbours, it’s no surprise that Hvar is considered a jewel among the Croatian islands.

It is even ranked as one of the world’s most beautiful islands, and its reputation is such that it has become something of a celebrity hideaway, although you don’t need to be a star to experience Hvar’s warm hospitality.

Hvar enjoys a mild climate year-round, and its natural beauty is evident all over the island, much of which is relatively quiet. The port town which shares the island’s name is the central hub of activity, but you can still experience peaceful walks along the waterside and chilled out days on the café terraces by the harbour.

Most of the island’s nightlife centres on Hvar, with clubs like Carpe Diem and Veneranda – where Prince Harry once memorably partied – drawing in the younger crowds. If you prefer quieter bars, you may prefer to head to Jelsa or Stari Grad.

If it’s beaches you seek, Hvar won’t disappoint. There are numerous choices, among them the bay of Milna, around 4km from Hvar Town, and Mekićevica, even closer. The pine forests and vineyards around Milna make this a very picturesque spot indeed, and you can get there by boat from Hvar.

To get a sense of Hvar’s history, there’s no better place than Stari Grad, the island’s oldest town. The narrow streets and quaint squares are full of character and make for pleasant walks once you have explored the harbour and Lanterna beach.

The furthest point east on the island, Sucuraj, is another well-preserved town, and it serves as a departure point for the mainland, with regular crossings to Drvenik, around 30 minutes’ drive from the outstanding Makarska.

The island of Hvar stands out as one of Croatia's most enchanting destinations - a picturesque paradise that seamlessly combines natural beauty, historical charm and a lively cultural scene. The sun-drenched island’s stunning landscapes provide a picture-perfect backdrop to a whole wealth of
unforgettable experiences.

At the heart of the island is the port town of Hvar, a historic gem known for its well-preserved architecture and timeless allure. Take a wander through the traffic-free labyrinth of narrow streets, where you can soak up the charm of the island. The central square of Hvar Town is a bustling hub surrounded by centuries-old buildings and lively cafes - it’s a popular spot to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine from one of the many cafes and restaurants. The square is also home to the imposing St. Stephen's Cathedral, a beautiful example of Dalmatian Renaissance architecture.

Overlooking the town is the Hvar Fortress, a medieval citadel with a history dating back to the 13th century. The fortress is worthy of a visit for the epic panoramic views that stretch across the town and the Adriatic Sea. The ascent is especially rewarding it at sunset, when you can watch the town's
lights sparkle below.

Heading inland just a few kilometres from Hvar Town, the village of Velo Grablje is famous for its lavender fields. Visit during the summer and you'll be treated to the sight and scent of the vast fields in full bloom. The island is also celebrated for its vineyards and olive groves, producing some of Croatia's best wines and olive oils. Many wineries and oil mills offer tastings and tours, allowing
you to sample these local delights while learning about traditional production methods.

Just a short boat ride from the harbour of Hvar are the Pakleni Islands, a group of islets renowned for their pristine beaches, hidden coves, and emerald sea. The idyllic surroundings offer a tranquil escape from the bustle of the main island, making it a favoured day trip destination. Explore hidden
bays, discover secluded beaches, and enjoy water sports in this unspoiled paradise. The uninhabited resort of Palmižana on the island of Sveti Clement is a particular highlight - a hidden oasis known for its lush botanical gardens and crystal-clear water.

For outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers, Hvar's natural beauty provides a picturesque playground. Hvar offers numerous cycling trails for both beginners and experienced riders. The island's diverse terrain is ideal for exploring the charming villages, olive groves, and vineyards on two wheels. Or for a unique perspective of the islands scenic beauty, you can experience the Adriatic up close and paddle along the dramatic coastline in a kayak, discovering coves and sea caves.

Hvar, is a Mediterranean paradise that promises an array of unforgettable experiences. Whether you're wandering through the historic streets of Hvar Town, discovering hidden coves on the Pakleni Islands, or savouring local wines and delicacies, the island offers a blend of cultural exploration, natural beauty, and relaxation that's hard to match.

  • Perfect for a family vacation.

    on 16/08/2023

    The beach is very close, and the house has table tennis, billiards, kayak and a sports room. We had a very nice time in the house as well as on the island of Hvar.

  • Superbly furnished and excellently equipped!

    on 06/08/2022

    Villa is nicely tucked among many trees and greenery. It's like the architect tried to hide it from prying eyes! Lots of privacy was what we look for when choosing our holiday destination and house, and this villa delivered it. Superbly furnished and excellently equipped! The view from the pool is excellent. Our host was always available and at hand for whatever we needed! We made plans to return next year, just hoping the house will be available!

  • Fantastic property!

    on 25/08/2019

    Stunning, modern, very well equipped, spacious and comfortable home, recently built in a beautiful and very peaceful location, just steps from the water, with a breathtaking views. Easy walking distance to the village of Vrboska in one direction, and to the beach in the other direction. Gorgeous pool, even though we were never able to get it heated. Probably the best property I ever rented!

  • Perfect family getaway

    on 14/06/2019

    Ideal villa for a family vacation. Away from crowd it offers peace and quiet. Heated pool was a big plus for us since we arrived in June. View is very nice and house surrounded with trees offered maximum privacy. Our two families enjoyed it very much and we made plans on returning the next year.
