It is definitely not for those who seek to enjoy the intensity of night life, to mingle in the noisy swarm of tourists and to visit luxurious shops, and night clubs . This Villa will take you on a journey to discover the unspoiled Dalmatian landscape, to discover enchanting secluded beaches, to get to know its people and to charge your batteries and to find relaxation and serenity in nature
The architects used dominant design elements such as-stone, wood and iron, strong and dynamic materials that have given a distinctive aspect and character to the building allowing for an exceptional architectural design,-- the light that gives an outdoor aspect inside the house through spectacular openings and offers magnificent view of the pool, the garden and the sea; the sound of the water creates a sensation of serenity and relaxation by itself; at the same time, it offers continuity in the view of the sea and the horizon.-- Together with the terrace with stunning view of islands Bra, Hvar and Pelješac; the veranda, the patio and the pool, the Villa has something from the aura of a Roman mansion that stands still in absolute harmony.
