Eirene has highly stylized interiors & exteriors complemented with warm details. We particularly like outdoor living area with swimming pool + underground wine cellar. High old stone walls of the villa are not just the sign that your privacy is guaranteed but also provide a sense of exclusivity.
Villa Eirene is one of the oldest stone houses in the charming, quiet village of Dol, approximately 15-minute drive from the town of Hvar. It is actually a traditional Dalmatian house turned into a gorgeous villa.
Eirene spreads on 400m2. It was originally built in the early 1900 and the adaptation was done in 2013.
Particularity of Eirene 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 large queen 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. In the living room there is additional sofa bed for two persons, if needed. There is also an additional bathroom with shower on the ground floor, as well as washer/dryer area.
Sweet and well hidden secret of Eirene is 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 plus.
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 favored 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 chromo-therapy treatment which has a miraculous effect on both the mental and physical state of everyone able to enjoy its benefits to the full. It is 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 wellbeing generated by the steam bath is not limited to the psyche.
Villa Eirene is a place we love indeed. It is ideal for families, friends, lovers, as well as for those still looking for love. Peaceful area, scented and colorful nature, fresh air in a combination with this divine village stone castle can certainly help each and every one of us to see the true beauty of life, often hidden behind various types of "daily drapes".
Love at First Sight
The problem was that there was no problem. At least she thought so.
What problems could you have if you were healthy, doing the job you love, materially insured, have beautiful children, caring husband. There are no problems, she thought.
The problem was that she could not see the problem, he thought.
Nothing strange, after all her family was nothing like his family full of hypersensitive intellectuals. She had a nice family whose members were all slightly pragmatic. They had no time to waste thinking about meaning or emotions. They were very practical. And she was like that. He wasn't.
They got lost on the way. To be more accurate she didn't seem lost, he did. So lost he was also when they decided to go to this Mediterranean island in the late spring. The Island was really her choice, but he knew she decided that way only out of desire to please him. There was something moving in the way she didn't know how to love him.
First days of holidays were spent going to the stunning beaches and, during the evening hours, local restaurants. They would arrive to their gorgeous villa late at night and as soon as the kids were asleep they would go to bed as well.
On the fourth day everything went to hell.
Peace and quite of the small village, fairy tale landscapes that were surrounding them, only contributed more to him feeling misunderstood. He had too much time to think about how good things could be. He couldn't sleep that very night, he went out on the terrace, sat in the deck chair and took the book he was trying to finish for months.
He didn't know how much time had passed when she turned up and asked him if he was ok. Summer breeze was blowing erotically around the green branches, swimming pool became almost emerald under the exterior lights and the air smelled like almonds and roses in this weird parallel universe.
Church bell was ringing at 2. He said to her that he wasn't ok, not even a little bit.
On her toes she walked up to him and placed herself next the deck chair being quiet.
After a few minutes she asked him if he had noticed how the summer breeze was dancing erotically around the branches of the nearby trees, and how the pool became emerald, and how the air, that lovely air smells like almonds and roses?
Suddenly he remembered why, even though never head over heels, he fell in love with her, why he loved her more than anything in the world.
Grabbing her hand he told her how much he misses love. She took his hand and slowly put it on her face. Between the gentle, warm kisses he could hear her saying how much she wants him.
