My friends & I have just enjoyed the most amazing week in Villa Ana on Hvar Island. It’s location just outside of Jelsa is a perfect balance of peace & tranquility, whilst it’s only a 1km walk (mostly along a waterfront pathway) into the restaurants & bars surrounding Jelsa harbour-side. You never tire of waking up to the view across the bay - simply stunning! Inside, four of the five bedrooms are large & enjoy sea views, but one is smaller & located at the front of the property. On the plus side they all have modern en-suite bathrooms. There is a large open plan kitchen/lounge which is well equipped, plus a further outside kitchen/bbq area. Plenty of tables & chairs so you can choose to dine inside or alfresco on the terrace. The villa is one of only a handful along this stretch of road that back down directly to the sea - you simply step out of the garden gate & pick your short scramble over the rocks into the calm & beautifully warm sea. They have two sea kayaks moored up for your use & there is great snorkelling along this stretch of coastline. Back in the villa, there is a small outside pool, table football, PlayStation & a table tennis table to keep you entertained. They also have 6 good quality bikes which you can use to cycle down into Jelsa or nearby Vbroska. One tiny criticism is that there isn’t enough loungers/sun-beds (only 4 at present) & hopefully this is on the owners agenda. In summary this is a beautiful modern villa, tastefully furnished with a killer location - we can’t wait to return!!
