Beautiful old stone cottages with courtyard and pool - Jedan self catering cottage (1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2/small child)



Updated: 23-Nov-2016
Cottages in Vrbanj, Island of Hvar, Croatia - Peaceful, Mountain Location, 3kms to Beach and Other Villages

The Quaich is situated at the foot of the mountains in the peaceful village of Vrbanj. Three self catering cottages surround a communal courtyard and private swimming pool. Our cottages, which are converted animal houses, are fitted to a very high standard yet also keeping their simple charm. The owners, Chris and Mick live on site and will endeavour to fulfil your every need. To enjoy The Quaich to it's full advantage we recommend car hire during your stay but several of the nearby towns and villages are within walking distance and cycling is very popular on the island. We are 5kms from the local ferry port of Stari Grad and 22 kms from Hvar town. There are many restaurants close by and a couple of bars and restaurants in Vrbanj itself. We offer a Romantic package also in Tri cottage and the cost includes several 'extras'. We offer many on-site services including picnics, evening meals on request, library, DVDs, taxi service.

About the Owner

My husband, Mick and I, bought The Quaich as a ruin back in 2005 and after much hard work and many trips back and forth from Brighton in UK with the majority of our furniture etc, we opened our doors to guests in summer 2008. The project turned out to be much more demanding than we first thought but with help from family and friends we have turned the ruin into a luxury home that we absolutely love and during the summer months share with our guests. Our life on the island is very different from back in the UK where Mick managed his own glazing company and I was a financial administrator. We still have a base back in Brighton and return there in the winter to see the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From a notoriously hard to please customer I think the biggest compliment I can pay is to say that I have nothing to complain about, as beautiful as the island is we both agree that the holiday would not have been half as good without the hospitality and guidance of Mick and Chris. The cabs were lifesaving as were the frozen towels and the laptop for the football! We will certainly be breaking our rule of never going to the same place twice. Steve McBride and Amy Fossett, London.

What a fabulously indulgent week we have had with Mick and Chris. Thanks so much for creating the perfect retreat. You have got it just right. Change nothing! Thanks so much for a lovely 30th anniversary week. Sad to leave today but so very chilled.

We’ve had a super week, all 5 of us. We felt we stayed here as family, we will be back, thanks for a wonderful stay.

We had a lovely relaxed stay at the quaich. Chris and Mick made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was lovely, like home from home. We came home very relaxed and wanting to return.

From the Owner

We chose to buy a property on Hvar mainly because it reminded me so much of Scotland with the mountains and pine forests everywhere and in addition the wonderful climate. In the spring the island is covered with wild stocks and freesia and the smells of rosemary linger. Vrbanj is a small mountain village away from the main road but not too far away from the nearest towns of Jelsa and Stari Grad. The sea is only 3km away and there are so many places to go swimming we are spoilt for choice. I was brought up in a small Scottish village where everyone knew each other and the old fashioned values such as helping your neighbour was a regular occurrence. Vrbanj is still like this and it's a little like stepping back in time.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


There are so many beaches to choose from on Hvar. The closest to us is approx. 4 kms. We have produced a list of the ten best for you to explore - from beautiful white stone beaches to rugged rocks. Snorkelling and diving are favourites on the island. There are plenty children friendly locations as well secluded romantic coves.

We can arrange an Island Tour for you so you will be able to see sites you would not normally experience.


We recommend car hire. The main airport on the mainland is Split some 30 mins drive from the ferry port. The ferry to Stari Grad takes 2 hrs and the catamaran takes 1.5 hours. We can arrange to collect you from the airport - please ask for costings but collection from either Stari Grad or Jelsa on the island is included in the package. Arrivals/departures in Hvar Town have a small supplement of 100 kuna. There is a Krilo catamaran that comes from Dubrovnik to Hvar Town.


Vrbanj is close to most of the main towns on the island. Jelsa, Vrboska and Stari Grad are 3 - 5kms away and Hvar town is 22kms away. There are also many trips to the nearby islands and the mainland.

Further Details:

Vrbanj has a local shop, post office, 2 bars and a restaurant. The nearest large town is Jelsa, 3kms away with a beach, marina, banks, shops, restaurants, bars, medical centre and a nightclub.

If you would like us to arrange sailing, sea kayaking or small boat rental just let us know and we can recommend a reliable agency.
