Villa Tyche has a private pool, neoteric and cozy interior and overall charming atmosphere, but the outside experience is just outstanding. Vineyards and olive groves, scent of lavender, sage and rosemary in the air... Stillness so characteristic for the little village will surely clear your thoughts.
Villa Tyche is a hundred year old beauty made of stone located in the village of Svirče.
This traditional Dalmatian house was built at the end of the 19th century and renovated in 2006.
It has 170m2 of indoor space with additional 200m2 of outdoor garden.
Ground floor of the villa consists of a stone paved lobby, kitchen, dining room, living room with a fireplace, bedroom with two separate pull-out beds and a bathroom with a shower unit.
Indoor stone stairway leads to the next floor where there are two bedrooms; one with a double bed and the other with a double bed plus the additional single bed. Also, there are two bathrooms with bathtubs and a 50m2 terrace with sun-beds if you choose to relax and sunbathe in the privacy of a villa.
Outside, in the yard, there is a round swimming pool ca. 20 m² surrounded by aromatic Mediterranean plants, sun-beds with parasols and outside table with chairs.
In the wine boutique on the ground floor you can find great selection of high quality wines made on the south side of the island (Plenković, Carić, Duboković). South side of the island is famous for its excellent wines because of the specific position of vineyards. Well-maintained vineyards are located on steep southern slopes where vine is showered by the sun the record number of days in a year.
This is a place where you can truly escape the harsh reality of everyday life, suitable for a family vacation, romantic getaway or for hangouts with close friends.
The closest major towns are Jelsa, Vrboska and Stari Grad (4-5 kilometers), and the town of Hvar is 25-minute drive away.
While you are relaxing by the pool, scent of laurel filling the air, pour yourself a glass of Carić’s wine called “Jubov” meaning “love” in Hvar dialect. By doing that you’ll get our point, for sure.
You’ll want to spend the rest of your life there.
Love at First Sight
We met her a few years back. Tyche seemed really lucky and truly unhappy at the same time.
She came to the island with a small group of friends but she stood out from the group somehow. If you were to look carefully into her eyes you’d be able to see a tiny shadow lurking underneath her eyelids.
Her cheerful friends got the keys for the villa one June afternoon and stayed there for two whole weeks, but Tyche appeared again a few months later. She came into our office asking about car rentals and we remembered that young lady right away. We were surprised to see her and asked her how come she’s still there almost five months after she originally arrived.
Instead with those shadowy eyes she gazed at us almost glowing. No more shadows but rather sparkle under her eyelids. Something changed.
She satisfied our curiosity and told us what happened.
She told us all about this petite picturesque village where instead of traffic noise you wake up to the sound of birds chirping. Where open green fields instead of grey sulky buildings surround you. Where food you eat doesn’t come from some generic box but from the trees, from the sea and from the ground you walk on. Where you go to sleep escorted by a starlit sky and with a sound of little owls from woods nearby.
While she was talking, so consumed by her own story, a man walked in and speaking fluent French asked her if she got the car for her friends. The man was a journalist who lived in that picturesque little village where Tyche came in June and where she stayed forever. It was all clear to all of us - as clear as her eyes were that day in October.
