An introduction to Hvar Apartments

What is the story behind the apartments, what was your inspiration to create them?

My father built this house and while I was growing up, my mother rented the rooms to guests as a bed and breakfast. When they passed away, I took over the house and decided to renovate the property as it was around 60 years old.

For me, it was important to do so with maximum respect for the environment, as I’m very aware that tourism is contributing to environmental destruction. So I didn’t want to create something for “fast tourism”. I wanted to use local materials and furnishings while reflecting on my life experiences.

For example, all of the garden lamps are from Spain where I live for part of the year while the chairs are a Dutch industrial design from the 1960s that I saw everywhere while living in Amsterdam. A lot of the other furnishings are from countries that were part of Yugoslavia where I was born and raised.

How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of the apartments?

Guests often comment on the love and detail that has gone into the house while one also said that it felt like being in a retreat. It’s very peaceful and calm, perhaps reflecting the time I spent studying Buddhism in Japan.

There is a luxuriousness about the spaces but it’s not “bling, bling”. Luxury is in the craft, not in how shiny things are. For me, luxury is knowing the name of almost every single person who made something for the house — it’s a luxury that you don’t see. I always collaborate with people and/or factories who are respecting their workers, even if it means waiting months for things to be made.

Some people thought I was crazy spending so much time and money on furnishings for a tourism rental but I want guests to feel comfortable. I also spent a fortune on soundproofing as we are very close to the centre of Hvar.

Hvar Apartments rooms & rates

The house is set across three floors, with a vegetarian restaurant below. The entire ground floor is taken up by the Garden Apartment, which has a queen-size bed and two twin beds that cannot be put together. The interior connects to a private garden that makes it ideal for guests who want to relax and families with older children. I don’t accept children under 12 as I want it to be a place where people can rest and relax, without young kids running around.

One floor up is the Seafront Studio, which has a balcony with a view of the monastery and the nearby beach. There’s a kitchen, a bathroom and a living space with a queen-size bed that can accommodate two people.

The Penthouse is on the top floor and has a long balcony offering magnificent views of Hvar. It’s particularly special in the evening with the lights of the boats bobbing in the water. The Penthouse can accommodate four people and is really for those who are into design.

Things to do in Dalmatian Coast & Hvar

  • Art / Culture
  • Hiking
  • Scuba diving
  • Sailing / Kayaking
  • Boat trips

I would recommend visiting the Hvar Theatre, which dates back to 1612 and is the oldest public theatre in Europe. The Franciscan Monastery in front of the house has a wonderful garden to explore and there’s a Napoleon castle with Venetian architecture that dates from the Renaissance period.

It’s also nice to rent a car and drive inland as there are a lot of other villages and beaches to discover. The island is also very good for cycling — you can rent bikes on Hvar or bring your own.

The location of Hvar Apartments

The apartments are located on the edge of the Old Town and less than 10 minutes’ walk from Hvar’s port. The closest beach is just 15 metres away. While the centre of Hvar can be a bit noisy with all of the bars and restaurants, as soon as you turn the corner into the bay where we are, it’s much quieter. However, we’re still within easy walking distance of lots of restaurants.

In front of Hvar’s port are several little islands, all with beaches that I recommend to guests. In addition to a nudist beach, there is a posh beach club and uninhabited islands with nothing but beach restaurants. Taxi boats connect to all of these islands and depart at regular intervals. Alternatively, you can rent your own boat. There are also several beaches on Hvar Island that host summer parties at night.

When is the best time to visit Dalmatian Coast?

From mid-May to the end of June is an ideal time to visit or between the start of September and the end of October. In the middle of summer, it can get very busy with lots of young people and parties. We close between November and April, although there is a movement on the island to encourage winter tourism in the future.
