Nestled on the island of Hvar, in a valley surrounded by greenery and dramatic rocky cliffs, is the unique villa Pharos, sleeping eight guests. True to the area's heritage, this villa is a maze of stone walls and multiple layers of rooms reflecting the cascade terrain it resides in. The villa's rustic charm can be seen from the outside. Light blue shutters frame the windows with authentic stone walls.

On the main terrace, a sun deck with a pergola surrounded by comfortable sunbeds looks out over the valley. A private pool is on the same level, so you can cool off while admiring the idyllic landscape. Sheltered under a wicker roof, the outdoor dining table overlooks the landscape. Enjoy dining while a wood fire barbeque blazes behind you, making this stay even more authentic.

The interior merges modern and traditional details, creating a calming home away from home. The kitchen is light and full of essential modern appliances. A second beautiful indoor dining room adjoins the kitchen with direct access to the outside. The table with two long wooden benches on either side creates an authentic and unique dining experience. Connected through a doorway from the kitchen, the lounge is tucked away in the property. Emerald velvet green chairs add warmth to the room, matching the long floor to ceiling curtains; a cosy space for when the evenings draw in.

Submerse yourself into relaxation with an indoor jacuzzi and sauna adding a note of luxury to the villa. Bring your heart rate back up in your private gym. With the sea so close you can include sea swimming in your daily exercise.

Spiral staircases and hidden passages lead you to the upper floors' bedrooms and adjoining ensuites. Open stone walls continue in every room. With beams above you and comfortable double beds below, it will be easy to get a good night's sleep. Each room has a flat-screen tv plus plenty of storage and space to settle into. The ensuites have the luxury of modern features and walk-in showers but are in keeping with traditional-looking fixtures.

The main bathroom in the villa has a dual sink and a rounded top bath to soak up the day's adventure. Towels and toiletries are supplied, plus bathrobes and slippers! Some bedrooms have access to hidden terraces with a table and chairs to enjoy a quiet moment.

At night is when this villa glows. Subtle lighting illuminates all the hidden stairways and seating areas so you can continue enjoying this rustic villa under the soft glow and in the company of the valley.

Villa Pharos is located on the popular island Hvar, and it is easy to see why this island has such a reputation. From the villa, you are sounded by a sea of greenery and a dramatic rocky landscape. The sea and beach are a mere two kilometres away from the villa.

The Hvar landscape changes with the seasons and offers something very unique. Blossoming lavender fields bloom during June and July, along with ancient olive trees that date back over a thousand years and are harvested at the end of October. The town of Hvar is on the western side of the island, close to the villa. The significant architecture inhabiting the island dates back over a thousand years. The Cathedral of St. Stephen is intriguing due to its different architectural styles, dating from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century. Within all this history, you can immerse yourself in the oldest public theatre in Europe, established in 1612.

Admire the iconic Hvar town waterfront, where historic docks meet some very modern yachts. You can take to the seas yourself, with a variety of boat hires and rental options available from the villa or in town. Under the terracotta rooftops lie characterful cafés, beach bars, and restaurants filled with locally sourced ingredients, perfected over the years and constantly changing in line with the seasons. Vineyards are scattered across this island, allowing guests to enjoy learning about the different varieties of wine and how they began.

Pokonji beach is a mere 1.5km away from Hvar’s city centre and is a beautiful place to detox from your stresses. There are two restaurants to quench your thirst and also have the option to rent sunbeds, umbrellas or even have a sea adventure with kayaks or paddle boats. The calm turquoise beach is the perfect spot to get on the water, with the glass-like sea so clear you can see all the creatures who reside under the surface. There are tours available if you want a more in-depth experience of the island, booking in advance is advisable to save any disappointment.

Neighbouring islands of Brač, Vis and Korčula also offer their unique landscapes and heritage and are easily accessible for a day’s adventure. The neighbouring island of Brač offers white sandy beaches and an abundance of water sports, including kayaking, sailing, peddle boats and much more.

The famous city of the Split offers a great deal to be explored and is only a ferry ride away. Located on the mainland, it is filled with history, longstanding architecture built centuries ago, and an abundance of cafes, restaurants, and shops.

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.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Hvar has so much to offer a family, and the villa Pharos is the ideal starting point to rest up and unwind for the day’s adventures. The privacy of this villa is ideal for families as you can make those special family memories in peace.

Outside, there is an outdoor pool for the younger ones to make a splash. If little ones or older ones are running around outside, be careful as the patio can be slippery, especially near the pool. The villa is set on many twists and turns, making it unique but also a maze for younger ones to discover. The stonework is the basis of all the walls and floors, both inside and out, so it is worth being cautious when children are running as if they fall, it will be a harsh surface. Wi-Fi is throughout the villa, and there is plenty of space to spread out.

A high chair and baby cot are available if required for any little ones.
With the sea on your doorstep and a whole island filled with culture and activities, the challenge will be fitting it all in! Adventurous ones will adore getting on a kayak and exploring the island's coast- finding hidden treasures and the creatures who live beneath the surface. Boat trips are also a fun way to see the sights and explore hidden beaches and swim in the sea- many can be booked from Hvar, or you can rent one with the villa (additional charges will apply). Children of all ages and parents alike will love island hopping, exploring the various towns, hidden beaches and trails.
