Located in the very centre of Jelsa, this century-old property of Jelsa’s famed captains consists of two newly renovated adjoining houses, both accessed through a large courtyard. The magnificent spacious courtyard, a hidden gem of the property is the essence of true Mediterranean living: outdoor living with full privacy in the most centrally located property.
Surrounded by exceptional cultural and historic heritage, the property full of character offers a special holiday.
Apartment # 1 (ideally for 2, max 4) consists of a fully equipped kitchen with bedroom, living and dining area, bathroom (shower + WC) and half-bathroom (additional WC and washbasin). The air-conditioned apartment is accessed by a staircase through the 70m2 courtyard that is dominated by one of the oldest bougainvillaeas on the island.
The spacious bedroom has a large double bed (160 x 200) and a beautiful antique wardrobe and dresser. In the living area there is a double sofa bed, TV, dining table and chairs.
WiFi is available.
With a view of the narrow streets of Jelsa, as well as the wooded island hilltops, the 5m long apartment terrace above the inner courtyard provides peace and privacy. Both the terrace and courtyard are used by guests in Apartment # 1.
Apartment # 2 (for 2) lies on the 1st and 2nd floor of the large renovated stone house. It consists of a bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, living area and large (35 m2) rooftop terrace.
WiFi is available.
The bedroom is furnished with an antique wardrobe and an extra large double bed (200 x 200). It has two windows with Mediterranean shutters, one overlooking the courtyard bougainvillea and the other, the quiet backstreet and gardens. It has air conditioning /heating.
The newly refurbished fully equipped kitchen with large refrigerator is next to the bedroom and has dining table and chairs.
The bathroom (with shower) is next to the kitchen and just by the inner staircase leading to the upper floor.
The upper floor has retained its original flooring and has a sitting corner with TV which is on the way to the spacious terrace, which is surely the highlight of this apartment. This nearly 360o view rooftop terrace offers a superb view of the charming nearby streets and the surrounding wooded hilltops and villages.
It has a dining table and chairs, shower and beach chairs.
Start your day with breakfast on the terrace before setting off to one of the island's crystal-clear beaches or secluded coves or simply enjoy a relaxing evening drink while gazing at the star-dotted sky.
The Sea has been an inseparable part of our ancestor's lives – a vocation, devotion and inspiration which can still be felt in every corner of the house. Appreciating it ourselves too, the house has been renovated with great care and attention for every detail.
Please note that both apartments share the same entrance and passage through the courtyard. The courtyard is used by guests in Apartment 1 while the rooftop terrace is used by guests from Apartment 2.
Apartment 1 and 2 can be also rented together by the same party.
Getting around: While staying on the island, don’t miss Hvar, the town of exceptional monumental heritage, and if you’re looking for more dynamic evenings, it’s best to be there when the night falls.
For those who wish to discover the beauties of Hvar Island, in Jelsa you can rent a car, bicycle or small boat.
Local buses also operate to Hvar Town, Stari Grad and Vrboska daily.
From Jelsa, you can easily visit Brac Island in a day: there are daily excursions by boat (a 60 min ride) to Bol where you can spend the whole day at the well-known Zlatni rat beach.
Owing to its perfect central location, the apartment is equally suitable in low season when the town is quieter, and the favourable climate of the island offers you a possibility to discover the nearby villages, either driving, or walking through the rich vegetation along the vineyards that yield the island's well-known wines, olive groves and fields with a multitude of medicinal herbs.
