About the property

Villa in Dol, Island of Hvar, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia - 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Private Heated Pool With Bar, Steam Bath, Wine Cellar

Villa Jasmine is one of the oldest stone houses in the quiet village of Dol. It is actually a traditional Dalmatian house turned into a gorgeous villa. Villa spreads on 400m2. It was originally built in the early 1900 and the adaptation was done in 2013. Particularity of Jasmine is its beautiful outdoor living area where you can find all the amenities that can be found in the interior of the house. On the first floor there are two bedrooms with king size beds and one bedroom with bunk beds (120x190 & 90x190). There is one large bathroom on the first floor with double sinks. Each room is equipped with AC and the two adult bedrooms are equipped with intimate RBG mood lighting. On the ground floor there is a modern, fully equipped kitchen with living room with attached pantry. There is also an additional bathroom with shower on the ground floor. A washer/dryer area located on the ground floor and an underground wine cellar stocked with all the best wines that Hvar has to offer. The wine cellar is a natural “cave” in the stone and is a genuine treat for wine lovers. Separating the ground floor from the first floor is a stairway that also exits to the spacious terrace with Mediterranean garden and swimming pool (6m x 4m). The outside terrace and swimming pool drifts into a sheltered area with a fully stocked bar with wine fridge and ice maker. Just past the bar, the area continues on to become an outdoor living room (lounge area) with an additional TV and just beyond that is a specious dining area that seats 8+. In the same area, there is a completely functional outdoor kitchen with a wood burning BBQ, gas cooker and sink. The outside terrace is equipped with a large dining table and chairs plus additional garden furniture, sun beds and everything else that can make your holiday in the sun as enjoyable as possible. The pool is heated and equipped with a jet steam swimming system that allows for aquatic exercise. Gentle, soothing--with no stress on joints or bones--swimming has historically been a favoured method for staying in shape. The pool is also equipped with massage jets, RGB lighting for night swimming and a hydrolysis and Cu/Ag Ionization system that treats the water without irritating and harmful chemicals. Just off the terrace, there is an additional bathroom with Turkish Steam bath (Hamman) with shower. A Turkish bath is a hot steam hydro-therapy with chroma-therapy treatment which has a miraculous effect on both the mental and physical state of everyone able to enjoy its benefits to the full. A Turkish bath is the perfect remedy for stress and the uncomfortable physiological reactions it can provoke thanks to the soothing and all-round relaxing effect the hot steam has on both body and mind. A Turkish bath is the ideal antidote to all those tensions that build up over the working day, banishing every kind of stress. The sense of well-being generated by the steam bath is not limited to the psyche.

About Max Sprung

I am a Croatian/American who has returned to live in Croatia in 2004 and am originally from the Island of Hvar. As a child, my parents sent me to Croatia every year so as not to forget the language and to enjoy the beauty and nature that Croatia has to offer. 17 years later I decided to move back and have not looked back since. Now I am the owner of a local travel and property management agency. We strive to provide international services with local flavors. Our growing portfolio of rental holiday homes insures that we will have something for everyone.

Why Max Sprung chose Hvar

This property has been in my family for generations and my grandmother was born there. We purchased this property from our cousins so that we could renovate it and preserve it. The renovation went a bit over the top and we ended up rebuilding most of the house and creating a premier Hvar Island holiday rental.

We stayed here for a week in July and I would highly recommend this property to anyone. It is immaculately presented, very clean throughout, modern and stylish. The owner(s) have put a lot of effort into making this a top-end-of-the-market holiday villa. The living area inside is quite spacious; 3 bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; a kitchen; large living room area and basement (including a wine cellar) and there is air conditioning throughout. All your home comforts are available (satellite TV, wi-fi, iron, ironing board, full cooking facilities) so you do not need to worry about anything. The outside area is without the doubt the best feature. A fully functioning living area (with cooking facilities, bbq, fridge, tv, music etc) - great for entertaining. The pool is relatively small but is large enough for a cool down and does have one of those swimming currents so you can get your daily lengths in quite easily. There is a fantastic steam room to the side and the view over the countryside is superb. The view of the night sky, minus any light pollution, is something in itself. I would recommend you take a car, as there are several lovely fishing ports/towns nearby; Stari Grad, Jelsa, Hvar Town and Vrboska. Each are within easy reach, a short 10 to 30 min drive depending on which one, with a good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants without being too rowdy. The owner(s) is very friendly and will get in whatever you need to help make your stay more comfortable. They do stock items such as wine, beer, tea, coffee etc and these are all very reasonably priced so you don't have to worry about stocking up! Overall I would give this villa maximum rating and would have no hesitation using it again.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 6 friends stayed at the villa for 9 nights this summer just gone. Firstly, the villa is immaculate and everything was brand new. The services offered were tremendous and the villa staff were very helpful with transport and anything we needed they catered for. Excellent location from the ferry port, and local supermarket. About. 15 minute drive from hvar. I would highly recommend this villa to both couples and families. I was with a young group of friends and we had a blast. Definitely coming back. The villa was furnished to a high standard and also offered personal chef service. What made the villa was the heated pool, outdoor kitchen and dining and pool bar.
