This newly renovated villa boasts a stunning seafront position and offers a serene holiday home in Croatia. Villa Karmela is nestled in a small, rocky cove on the lovely, and extremely popular island of Hvar in Dalmatia and is the ideal choice for those looking for a quieter and more relaxing villa holiday. Arriving at the villa via a private driveway, you will instantly feel more relaxed and ready to rejuvenate once you see the uninterrupted panoramic views of the coastline.

Villa Karmela is split over two separate buildings, the main house boasts a glorious open-plan living and dining room with full-length windows allowing guests to fully appreciate the views and allow light to flood the room. This living room along with the fully-equipped kitchen is located on the first floor of the main house whilst the two double ensuite bedrooms are located on the floor below.

The Guest House is situated in a separate building on the other side of the private swimming pool and boasts two individual studio apartments. The apartments are each equipped with a lounge with sofa bed, kitchenette, double bedroom and ensuite bathroom. This accommodation set up would be perfect for a group of friends or perhaps a large family looking for the privacy of their own space whilst still enjoying each other’s company.

Head outside and enjoy the use of the luxurious private swimming pool. Enjoy days lounging around the pool, either on one of the sun loungers or comfy day beds. If you are feeling brave, make sure you take a dip in the sea too! By evening, dine al fresco on the outdoor dining veranda whilst you watch the sun set over the coastline.

The location of this villa means that although you are in a private cove location, the village of Zastrazisce is only a short drive; here you will find restaurants, bars and shops. Alternatively, Stari Grad a small pebble cove has a few restaurants to enjoy and this is located only 500m from the villa.

Villa Karmela is located on the island of Hvar, a short ferry ride from Spilt. Alternatively if you are arriving from the south, the ferry from Drvenik on the mainland will bring you to Sucuraj on Hvar. The villa itself is situated close to the quaint village of Zastrazisce and the small coastal resort of Vela Stiniva is only a short stroll away, albeit up a steep cliff.

Villa Karmela boasts a stunning seafront location with un-interrupted views across the ocean. The villa is accessed via a private driveway and offers guests pure tranquillity for a holiday to Croatia.

With a seafront location, sea based activities are abundant. Swimming, snorkelling and diving in vicinity of the villa is highly recommended. Explore the surrounding sea bed full of marine life. Many different fishes and shells can be found nearby. Local fishermen can provide insight as they sometimes come ashore offering fresh catch.

Walking along the shore at sunset can be truly unique experience. In the middle of the summer the sun sets in the sea in between islands Hvar and Brac. The colours of the sky and the size of the burning sun is unforgettable.

Close to villa are several vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields. Towards the end of summer these areas are full of colour and are brimming with life. Local products can be bought directly for consummation or as a memory. Olive oil, wine and lavender oil produced in villages nearby can be acquired easily.

Renting a boat or bringing Your own would open endless possibilities of exploring nearby bays and caves. There are several exceptional locations and we would be glad to provide more details as to where to go and when its best time to do something.

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.

  • Beautiful setting!

    on 19/09/2023

    Such a beautiful setting on the sea. We are unwinding and feeling contentedly relaxed!

  • Wonderful stay

    on 12/04/2022

    Pool amazing, bedrooms and bathrooms are just stunning, wonderful surroundings and the host was really kind with a great service and no problems at all, much thanks! Every thing was just amazing from check in to check out. Thank you for a fabulous service & a wonderful stay.

  • Exceptional

    on 09/04/2022

    Best villa we have ever been in 15+ years. Such an amazing experience. To have breakfast on the terrace above the sea and no other people around for miles. Wow, we have to come back!

  • Amazing

    on 05/04/2022

    Everything - Villa Karmela is exceptional and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The family's determination to resurrect their 300 year old estate into a beautiful, boutique villa is inspirational, but the warmth of their welcome was even more remarkable. If you get the chance, you must add this very special destination to your visit to Croatia, you won't regret it!

  • Best Ever

    on 18/10/2017

    Villa Karmela is the perfect place to stay, especially if you enjoy total privacy and peace. We have stayed at many different villas, all over the World, over the last 15 years and can honestly say that this was our best one ever!
    The rooms are all tastefully furnished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean (like the rest of Croatia). The views from every room are simply stunning and the layout of the accommodation allows for family or friends spending time together, but still maintaining privacy between each bedroom area.
    Outside, the pool area is just fantastic and the private ocean front is great for swimming in the clear blue water or exploring along the rocks and pools. The ocean goes flat when the wind drops, and you can actually see huge shoals of small fish swimming by.
    We spent most of our time relaxing at the villa and took advantage of the services of top chef Franco some nights, who cooked us fabulous and authentic Croatian meals using local produce, some grown himself. We also found fantastic restaurants in local Jelsa and further away Hvar, both beautiful ports where you can enjoy boat trips or just chill out.
    It was only the two of us this time, but we are already planning to return with our friends, another three couples, next year and take full advantage of all the facilities.
    The hospitality and communication from Mario & Margarita was outstanding, never intrusive, but always there to help. A really lovely couple, with very high standards.

  • Idyllic & Quiet Location with Perfect Hosts!

    on 27/07/2017

    We were looking for a quiet getaway with all the amenities you might require for a relaxing 2 week family holiday. Villa Karmela was perfect for us! It is a stunning place with a great pool and direct access to the sea. Every morning went for a snorkel and the kids loved playing in the pool.
    On arrival the villa was spotlessly clean and clearly well looked after. The hosts, Mario and Margarita could not have been more helpful and pleasant to deal with. The communication before we went was exceptional and whilst we were there they were contactable 24/7 and always happy to assist us with whatever we needed.
    We hired a chef to cook traditional Croatian evening meals for us and we can highly recommend him! Ask Mario for Franco! He uses the freshest ingredients and traditional methods and always with a smile on his face!
    I can't recommend this villa enough if you're looking for peace and tranquility in a stunning location.
