Hvar | Bedrooms: 5 | Sleeps: 10

Rates: from £7,373 per week

Within walking distance to the centre of the sought-after town of Hvar, Villa Oaza combines traditional Baroque features with modern design elements to create a truly luxurious holiday experience. Sprawling over 650m² on three floors, Villa Oaza boasts a wellness area with sauna, pool, Jacuzzi and massage room for up to 10 guests. All five bedrooms benefit from their own en suite bathrooms and are spread out over the first floor and ground floor, ideal for families or a group of friends. Whilst the villa offers plenty of reasons to stay inside, it is perfectly positioned within the town centre and it only takes a few steps out of the door to reach the waterfront and main promenade of Hvar.

Villa Oaza, built in the Baroque period between 1590 and 1612, is a protected building due to its historical value. Restored under strict supervision by the national Conservation Institute between 2007 and 2009, it is now one of the most exclusive and luxurious residences in Hvar's beautiful Old Town. Just a few steps down the path and you reach the vibrant promenade and marina from where to embark onto a boat and out onto the sea, filled with excitement and ready to explore the many beautiful islands dotted along the sunny Dalmatian coast. Within the comforts of your holiday home, you are invited to be spoiled beyond belief with soothing spa treatments in your villa's very own wellness centre, including a sauna, Jacuzzi and relaxation room. The pool house leads out onto the Gothic garden blessed with orange and lemon trees, as well as lavender, jasmine and rosemary bushes. With access to the owner's private wine cellar, you are welcome to indulge in some of the country's finest vintages before heading out to the promenade just in time for cocktail hour.

Currency Information
The Kuna (Kn, HRK) is the official currency of Croatia. One Kuna equals 100 Lipa.
Notes are available in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 kn.
Coins are available in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 lipa and 1, 2, 5, 25 kn.

Money Matters
Major credit cards are widely accepted here (though a limited number of merchants have American Express accounts) and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure.

Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

Tipping in Croatia
The Croatians are fairly relaxed about tipping etiquette. However service is not usually included in restaurants and it is common practice to leave the spare change, or up to 10% of the total in a smarter restaurant. Tipping taxi drivers in Croatia is not expected, but if it was a pleasant ride then rounding up the amount would certainly be appreciated.

Tipping In Restaurants: If service was good a 10% tip is appropriate. Beware there may be a cover charge for bread and water. In bars, simply round up the total amount.

Arrival & Departure Formalities
Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have: • A signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
• Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application.

Weather on the Dalmatian Coast
The Adriatic coast enjoys a Mediterranean climate of hot, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. Summer temperatures range from 22 to 26°C in the continental region, 15 to 20°C in the mountain region and 26 to 30°C in the coastal region. Winter temperatures range from 5 to 10°C in the coastal areas.

Health Considerations
It is advisable to contact your doctor before you travel if you have any specific health concerns and take out appropriate travel and medical insurance.

Tests for narcotics may be performed, if tests prove positive severe consequences include confiscation of vehicle, severe fine and removal of driving licence. It is prohibited to drive after taking any medicine whose side effects may affect the ability to drive a motor vehicle.

Fines:
The police officer will impose a fine on the spot; the fine must be paid within eight days at a post office or bank. The police may hold your passport until evidence of payment is produced. The driving licence of a foreign motorist can be suspended for up to 8 days for driving with excess alcohol, driving without prescribed medical aids e.g. glasses, driving in a state of exhaustion or whilst ill. The licence must be collected within 3 days of the end of suspension. Illegally parked cars can be wheel clamped.

Safety & Security
• Crime levels are low and violent crime is rare.
• Take care in busy tourist areas, where pickpockets are known to operate. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Don't leave valuables unattended, particularly on the beach. Use a hotel safe if possible.
• Report all incidents of crime to the local police station and get a police report.

location:

Villa Oaza is situated right in the heart of Hvar Old Town, only a 2-minute walk away from the promenade (20m or 72 steps) and the lively marina. A large variety of bars (e.g. Carpe Diem Cocktail bar) and restaurants (e.g. Gariful Fish restaurant), along with shops and cafes can be found here. The local catamaran also docks here and includes destinations like nearby island Korcula. The ferry port is in Stari Grad (20km) from where to reach Split Town in approx. 1h20.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.
