It has beautiful interiors, carefully chosen furniture, lots of interesting details. While relaxing by the pool, surrounded by a delightful garden, there is a perfect view of the sea, nearby islands and Italy. It has a fantastic position in a fantastic town. But, what makes this villa so different from all the others?
Stunning Villa Eros is located in the Hvar Town in the area called Križna Luka. It is situated on the waterfront in the quiet and attractive setting amongst other family villas and just a 20-minute of relaxing walk from the town center. During summer season Hvar center looks and feels almost like a cosmopolitan beehive – the atmosphere is lively at all times and the town never shuts down. Villa Eros, on the other hand, is a Zen-like zone in the middle of that hive.
Villa Eros in not only a botanical garden of a sort, but also a kind of Croatian contemporary art gallery. Villa spaces are filled with beautiful paintings and artwork. The villa owner is a rather interesting lady equally in love with art and nature and those great passions of hers are present in every corner of this thousand square meter space you will have at your disposal.

Another double bedroom with two single beds is on the same floor as well as one bathroom with the shower unit and another with a bathtub. Surrounding the entire floor is spacious terrace with a large dining table, garden furniture and sun loungers perfect for relaxing time.

Numerous shaded terraces with garden furniture are all around the estate and there are many wonderful little nooks below the pine trees that are perfect for a relaxing time with your favorite book.
On the estate there is an additional apartment for the servants so the guests can have all the help they need always available right there on the spot. A maintenance person that takes care of the garden and the pool is on the estate on a daily basis. Also, if they order them online, guests can have groceries waiting for them upon arrival and there is no delivery fee.
The largest pebble beach in Hvar Town called Pokonji Dol is located approximately 500 m from the villa. The water there is crystal clear and the beach is ideal for children. There is also a rocky beach in front of the villa and we are sure your morning swim there will be refreshing and enjoyable.
Located on such large plot Villa Eros ensures complete privacy. The century old pine trees together with some exotic plants in the garden create a natural green fence that protects the guests from the eyes of the people walking by.
Palm trees, yucca trees, cacti, bougainvillea, lavender and aloe are just some of the plants that will keep you company during your stay in Villa Eros.
Eros is contemporary, cozy, colorful home... and it bursts with positive energy. Nature and art are true ruling forces of this place and its ambiance. Everything else comes second. And it is just perfect that way. The owner managed to combine her two great passions creating an exquisite place and proving that miracles are possible.
We love Eros and we recommend it to all who identify with famous statement of George Carlin’s; life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
*The 16th guest, if necessary, will be accommodated in the sofa bed in the kitchen area of the upstairs floor, to avoid any misunderstanding. In the villa you have on upstairs floor the 2 single extra bed in the living room and a sofa bed in the kitchen area. The extra bed in the downstairs floor is a couch.

Love at First Sight
He was lying by the pool while watching the fluffy white clouds sail over the blue sky above him. He heard some chatter from the inside of the house but he couldn’t really make out what was said. He was trying to figure out how in the world did they end up in this perfectly beautiful villa, in a perfectly beautiful town, on a perfectly beautiful island.
It was no secret their relationship was far from perfect for quite some time now. All their friends knew that very well as well. The obvious question was why are they still together, and the answer was actually very simple – he loved her more than life itself. And she felt exactly the same.
Their problems arrived unannounced, as they have tendency to do. One morning, like so many mornings before, he reached for her in their warm bed, but she flinched without a word of explanation. And so it began. Several months has passed since that morning and she was still ignoring all his well meaning attempts to patch things up. Nothing was working, not even the gentle words, nice surprises or wonderful gifts. At this point the shell could only be opened by the use of force, and that was not his style.
They had lunch on the terrace – brodetto made of lobster, monkfish, sea eel and crab was absolutely delicious. Their friends decided to take a little trip after lunch and visit the beaches on Pakleni Islands while she disappeared somewhere.
He found her in the living room staring at the painting with the inscription saying Odalisca. The painting showed a naked woman lying on a red bed sheets holding some abstract object in her hand. At least it seemed abstract to him.
He tried to engage her in conversation by asking what she thinks the woman in the painting is holding and she quietly replied that the whole problem of their relationship is summed in that very question – he does not see what she sees. She continued saying how gifts and compliment mean not much to her; she wanted him to understand the essence of her being and her need for something stable, something constant. She appreciated his diplomatic career but she could not spend any more endless and lonely hours in some rented apartment who knows where while he is on business meetings, lunches, dinners… She simply no longer wanted to be unhappy.
He looked at her as she finally opened up and poured out all the words that were for months locked inside of her. The dam was finally broken. He sat on a chair next to her and tried to hug her. Two pea size tears went down the soft lines of her beautiful face and this time she did not reject his touch.
She kissed him wistfully, with such sadness. That was the first time in his life that he could actually feel the intensity of someone else’s pain. He told her that nothing, absolutely nothing in this world is more important to him than her happiness. He would give anything to see her smiling again.
The corners of her heart shaped lips flickered just for a second and it gave him hope. He laid his hand on her black, silky hair and looked back at the picture with the inscription saying Odalisca one more time. He does not know how, but in that very moment he could see clearly what the woman in the painting was holding in her hand.
