Tucked away in the charming streets of Stari Grad on the Croatian island of Hvar, No 14 is the perfect escape for families or small groups. This traditional stone house is laid out over four levels, including a terrace with stunning views at the top. The house has been carefully renovated to make the most of the beautiful building while adding in a whole host of modern comforts.
Step inside and you’ll find the first of the double bedrooms on the ground floor. The property has two bathrooms and a handy laundry room. All the bedrooms are furnished in a simple, contemporary style in neutral tones and with plenty of natural light, creating a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. There’s a master bedroom with a king-size bed, a twin, another double room with a single day-bed, and a small pull-out sofa bed in the attic room.
Upstairs, you’ll find the modern, open-plan living spaces, including a fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and living room. This space is the heart of No 14 and the carefully selected design features, such as the contemporary lights above the dining table and the sleek kitchen fittings, work beautifully alongside the building’s exposed brick walls.
On the top floor, a cosy attic room leads out onto the terrace. This has been furnished with loungers and table and chairs for enjoying meals outside together. Watch the sunset over the rooftops of Stari Grad as you tuck into a delicious alfresco dinner.
The enchanting town of Stari Grad is said to have been founded as far back as 384BC. Making it the oldest town in Croatia. It is built around a calm harbour with crystal clear waters and surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and pine forest. Wander through the colourful streets, visiting the charming independent shops and galleries as you go. Explore the town’s history with visits to the Dominican Monastery and the church of St Stephen. The town is also a popular spot for cyclists and there is a bike rental shop at the end of the road on which No 14 is located. It's a nice spot for cyclists of all abilities, and cycle maps are available.
There are also plenty of spots to swim in the sea just minutes from the town centre and there are kayaking, diving and sailing opportunities too. You can also rent boats to explore the coves, or why not hire a private skipper for the day and see more of the island? Stari Grad has a lively restaurant scene, and has some high quality Mediterranean restaurants on offer, but is quieter than the party capital Hvar Town, which is on the other side of the island, and is just a 25 min taxi ride away. The island of Hvar is only 42 miles long, with many secluded beaches and coves to discover. Stari Grad has several supermarkets, bakeries and a fresh fruit and veg market.
Guests may also wish to visit the Tiha lounge bar, which is accessible by taxi boat, and is well worth a visit. The more adventurous may also wish to go cliff jumping, which can be done in Sveta Nedilja - a 30 minute taxi ride away. Rock climbing with companies such as Adventure Dalmatia, is also an option, with pick ups from Stari Grad town centre, around 30 minutes away. You could also visit the Blue Caves, or take part in some diving lessons when the season is right.
There is also a Nutribullet available to use.
