Croatia is fast-climbing its way to the top of holiday hit lists and, with a balmy climate, captivating coastline and generous smattering of age-old towns, it’s not hard to see why. Its strategic location between the Balkans and Central Europe has left it storied in the cultures of kingdoms past, from Napoleonic defences to Venetian plazas. And, with a rich array of local foods at its fingertips too, its cuisine continues to captivate fastidious foodies to boot.
Villa Tamara is located on the island of Hvar, occupying a sunny spot in Zavala on the southern coast. Each of the five, two-bedroom apartments benefit from spacious balconies, offering up the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of local wine – be sure to sample Plavac, as the cold rock tunnel of Pitve nearby has been used as a storing space for its bottles for years. Apartments come complete with parking, air conditioning and boat mooring.
How to Get There
I have stayed in multiple hotels and apartments in the city of Hvar, both in the city center and the outskirts, and this is by far the best place. Franco(Tamara's Husband) is always pickibng us up at the bus station. The rooms are clean, and the rooms that are facing the ocean has a beatiful view. We could sit for hours each day just looking at the view. Especially at night, when the moon is up, its a spectacular lightshow in the ocean. Its also quiet compared to accomadations closer to the city. Its a 10-20 min walk to the city center, and i find this nice so you can walk of the excess holiday weight ;). All in all, this is one of the best places to live when visiting Hvar.
Very kind welcoming owner, clean good facilities for self catering. Supermarket near. Location excellent; quiet mainly, suburbs of Hvar town, yet short walk along sea front to centre and also in other direction to small local beaches (pebble) swimmable quiet harbour & excellent viking dive center.
When we arrived in Hvar, Franco (Tamara's husband) was here to pick us up to the apartment. He also lift us back to the ferry the day we were leaving.
The apartment was big enough for two. We had our how kitchen, bathroom and balcony. The room was the perfect size for a couple. We had two big towels for the shower and two small one for the hands and the face. It was perfect. We had a hairdryer too. The kitchen is equipped. The only think that was missing (and it's only to have a one bad things to say) was a kitchen linen, but we were eating out all the time, so for us it wasn't a big problem.
The apartment is in a great location. There's a market just 2 min walking.
HulaHula bar is 5 min walking distance. The port is 10 to 15 minutes walking, but there's a nice sea walking to reach the port and the path is all illuminated.
We were there at the end of may, so there's not to many tourists. Clubs were not open, but there're some bars on the port with great cocktails.
We had lunch and dinner in restaurants every days, price are almost the same everywhere and they're all good (except lungo mare).
If you are in Hvar, you have to go to Pamizama beach, it's in San Klement, but it's really with it. You can take a boat on the port and public or a private one. You also have to go to the fortress it's a rally nice place to see a sunset.
Great apartment, well equipped, very clean and with stunning view from the balcony. Located 10 min. walk from the city centre and 3 min. walk from the beach, it gives you perfect opportunity to enjoy the city life, but not to get tired with the noise of city nightlife. If you travel with kids - you will find a playground on your way to the city.
Franco and Tamara are great hosts, very helpful and friendly. We have asked them to arrange baby crib for us, and this was done with no additionaly charge.
If we visit Hvar once again - we will surely stay in Apartments Tamara again.
Franko and Tamara were extremely hospitable, I had talked to them briefly over the phone to organise our arrival dates and the booking of the apartment. When we arrived they picked us up from the bus stop which was only a short walk from the port. Arriving at the apartments I could tell that they were well looked after, very clean and they had all the essentials you would expect. We stayed in apartment orange which is through the gate and down a small flight of stairs. We had two large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lovely kitchen and a terrace with a table and chairs. Franko and Tamara were easily contacted as they were only down the hallway. They let us know the directions to the beach (2 minute walk) and to town (10-15 minutes) and that we could have our towels changed during the week. After our stay in Hvar, they also dropped us back at the bus stop so we could catch our ferry at 6am! Truly great hosts and I would definitely recommend staying here. If I revisited Hvar I would stay with them again!
