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
A wonderful host and wife -high standard apartment with all we needed. Comfortable bed and outstanding balcony direct view of the sea and islands with good sitting space . 2 Restaurants near by are good but 15 min walk to main centre where many more good ones to choose . Walk from centre can be hilly but on main walkway is a lovely stroll by the sea.
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.
