On the island of Hvar, surrounded by the Mediterranean scents of lavender and rosemary, you’ll find the most charming stone villa with glorious sea-views from its swimming pool. Here you can totally unwind in the rural idyll knowing that the beautiful island is yours to discover. Based on a vast estate of lavender fields, cypress, fig and olive trees the stone house was originally used as a place of respite for the workers in the surrounding fields, either to escape the hot sun or warm themselves by the fire. Built at the beginning of the 20th century using the same grey stone as the nearby village of Humac, it sits peacefully amongst stunning natural surroundings where olive oil, herbs and spices have been cultivated for years. The interiors are utterly charming with a mixture of modern and antique furnishings. You’ll feel homely in the spacious living area and the kitchen has everything you need as well as a fantastic barbecue in the courtyard. The pretty bedrooms are individual in style with traditional features such as exposed stone walls and wood beamed ceilings; two of the en-suite rooms are on the first floor with two more just across from the villa along a stone path.&nbsp; You will be well looked after here with daily house-keeping and the option to hire a private chef for part of your stay. The outside grounds will delight with the glorious swimming pool with mesmerising sea-views and stone paths leading to inviting lounge areas and the al-fresco dining terrace. Play tennis, basketball or a game of bocce or simply lounge in the sun with a glass of chilled local wine.&nbsp; There’s no surprise that cycling, hiking and horse-riding opportunities are also nearby. The 13th century village of Humac (3km) is a few minutes by car, a captivating hamlet without electricity where you can dine by candlelight in the local konoba. The beaches of Zavala (7km) are simply stunning plus there are restaurants and watersports or head north to the particularly family-friendly vibe in Jelsa (14km) with more wonderful coastline. Villa Quarra offers comfort, relaxation and a strong sense of history in the tranquil surroundings of the interior of this striking island. <b>The Villa</b> Villa Quarra is on the island of Hvar.
