Why not come and join us on the beautiful island of Hvar, with over 900 positive guest reviews, we are confident you won't be disappointed.
We are both well travelled and love to meet new people from all over the world. Daniela has lived in Hvar all her life and is full of great local advice. Andrew is English and a freelance teacher.
Life on Hvar is very laid back and fits perfectly with us both, the winter is spent mainly relaxing, going for walks by the sea, olive picking, fishing and enjoying the coffee bar culture in town. In January/February we like to travel and this year we plan on going to Thailand.
The summer is when Hvar comes to life. Full of stunning beaches, beautiful crystal clear water, history and culture. Hvar also has a very varied, vibrant nightlife which really does cater for everyone.
Some of the many outdoor activities available while in Hvar range from boat rental, rock climbing, kayaking, sailing, day trips to other island, blue and green caves, wine tasting tours, scooter rental to explore more of the island and many more. We can organise anything you may want to do during your stay with us.
