Villa Features

Villa Hebe is a beautiful estate in the heart of the island. It is composed of three traditional Dalmatian stone houses with a swimming pool.

This luxurious complex is surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation and it is on the outskirts of the Dol Village. There is an amazing view of the Brač Island and Stari Grad Plain from the estate.

Villa Hebe is a property of 280m2. The villa itself has 220m2 and it consists of one main and two smaller houses. All three units are authentic century old stone houses that were fully renovated in 2007.

Villa has five bedrooms – one on the ground floor and four on the first floor. There are also four bathrooms, a laundry room, kitchen, dining room, living room, two upstairs terraces, one ground floor terrace, outside dining area and a pool measuring 24m2.

Through the main terrace there is an access to the main and the connected smaller house. In the ground floor of this combined unit there is a living room with a large sofa and a fireplace, a kitchen, separate dining room, laundry room and a separate toilet. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with double beds, two bathrooms and a terrace.

From the main terrace you can also access the other small house that has its own separate entrance. On its ground floor there is a small bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom while upstairs there is another bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom and a terrace.

A small, charming, semicircular bridge connects upstairs terraces of both units. On the main terrace there is an outdoor dining area and a swimming pool with a sun deck surrounded by a beautiful green lawn. The main terrace is surrounded by a high stonewall which allows complete privacy.

Sophisticated villa owners are art dealers, which is evident from their exquisite taste and attention to detail. They created this well-equipped modern yet traditional villa brilliantly tailored for the perfect relaxing holiday.

The overall villa style is a combination of natural materials like stone and wood together with airy, relaxing pastel tones. The entire estate is, however, soaked in the whole range of stunning colors and scents of nature.

Two-car private parking is provided for the villa guests.

The villa is close to all town facilities. The town of Stari Grad is just 3-minute drive away and the town of Hvar is some 20-minute drive away.

Villa Hebe is an ideal place for a family or a group of friends. It is perfect for those who are aware of the priceless idea of a “true vacation”, a vacation that revitalizes, relaxes and rejuvenates.

Love at First Sight

In her mind, her life was divided in two units – "then" and "now" – the time before and the time that followed after.

The "time before" was all those moments in her youth - time when she attracted all the attention and when the glances followed her wherever she went. Time when no one was left indifferent by her irresistible refined beauty. Hebe had hair like a fairy and her face was simply unforgettable. She had perfect bosom and legs so exquisite. Her husband, however, was always saying how he fell in love with her smile. But her smile happened only on a rare occasion nowadays. She wasn’t at peace with the fact what time caught up with her, despite all her effort – financial and otherwise the "now" came and was here for good and she was often sad because of that.

Her husband tried cheering her up in every way possible and one summer he planned a nice trip. Their children, all grown up now, went along since Hebe felt alive and young when they were around. The family spent three whole weeks in the rustic island villa in a village that emitted the atmosphere of Mediterranean as it once was.

Hebe fell in love with the island right away. It was irresistible and simply beautiful – just like she was in the reign of "then". The traditional century old villa where they were staying was just as wonderful. Hebe was fascinated. She would spend hours on a sun lounger by the pool just thinking and reminiscing while her husband and children were playing cards and talking around the table.

A couple of days passed in this quiet rural idyll and her heart opened up just enough to realize the truth that was incomprehensible to her mind up to that point - despite the years, Hebe was still a beautiful woman. The only thing missing was her cheerful spirit and her contagious smile.

While the rest of the family watched in amazement, Hebe was happily laughing by the pool.

Location
Village of Dol

Dol is a small, quiet and picturesque village located 3 km south of the town of Stari Grad. The village is spread across two valleys – Dol of St. Mary in the west and Dol of St. Anna in the east. A beautiful green hillock with the church of St. Michael the Archangel on its top divides the two valleys. 

...

The village of Dol is among the oldest places on the island as evidenced by the archaeological findings in the area; prehistoric Illyrian fort called Purkin Kuk located on the hilltop of Budinjac (274 m), the site of an ancient Roman villa rustica called Kupinovik, a medieval church of St. Domnius from 11th century… Those are just some sites that prove this area was populated since prehistoric times.

The nice way to visit the aforementioned surrounding churches is while cycling or walking by the beautiful countryside.

Make sure you check out the church of St. Anna that was first mentioned in the year 1226 and the church of St. Mary that dates back to 14th century. The chapel of St. Rocco, however, was built in medieval times while the main church of St. Michael reaches back to the 16th century and still holds some paintings from local and Italian masters of that time.

We strongly recommend taking a bike ride and visiting the nearby Stari Grad Plain. That ancient locale presents the best-preserved cadastral plan in the whole Mediterranean area and because of that it has been UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.

Dol is also known as home to the oldest certified Plavac Mali vineyard in the world.

A symbol, almost a mascot of the village is an edible dormouse (Puh in Croatian). There is an annual festival called "Puhijada", which takes place in August. During the festival you can actually try and taste roasted dormice, since Dol is one of three locations in Croatia where people still hunt for dormice.

If you wish to spend a few peaceful hours away from your children you can take them to atelier Marinka – a true heaven for kids where they can play and learn about art while you sip your coffee during your much needed alone time. Marinka atelier is a gallery and workshop for children of all ages and is owned by a wonderful Slovenian artist Marinka.

There are two yoga centers in Dol as well, one British, the other American. In case you are a vegetarian we recommend a very friendly restaurant "Konoba Kokot" since there are excellent cheeses and other local meat-free delicacies on its menu. For those who are not vegetarians, do not worry, there are also great meals for meat lovers, especially domestic lamb specialties.

Old stone houses surrounded by pine trees and cultivated fields are a typical for the area. Also, in every house you can find excellent olive oil, wine, prošek, and in some houses even rosemary and lavender oil, homemade marmalade and goat cheese, exclusive homemade products characteristic for the inner regions of the island.

Stone paved courtyards, taverns, village churches and chapels, green landscapes and meditative silence disturbed only by an occasional bird chirping makes this peaceful village a fairytale kind of place. Being there may cause people to think they are a part of some fantasy story, part of some beautiful dream or a part of an altogether parallel universe in another dimension.
