NICE property, located in a too quiet village...

We stayed there 2 weeks during May/June and the property did for sure meet our expectations. Is even better than shown on the pictures. There could have been some sunbeds at the terrace, but that's basically the only thing we felt were missing. There is a very small supermarket 10 meters away from the villa. Buy water and heavy stuff there so you don't need to carry it from the center of the city. However wine was expensive at this supermarket.
The property was great, but Jelsa is a quiet place - too quiet... We thought it would be more restaurants to go for lunch and dinner, but they weren't that many good ones. There are A LOT of coffee- and icecream bars, but not many ok restaurants. And when it comes to nightlife; forget it! :)
One other thing that was disappointing with Jelsa, were the grocery stores. They had a very limitied selection of food compared to what we are used to in Scandiavia and western Europe. We were also in Hvar city which had a much better grocery store, but smaller cities in Croatia don't seem to have that. Even the small shops selling fruits and vegtables had a very limited selction.
Summary: House great! Jelsa nice but boring, and no good grocery stores to find there either.
