                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      An very spacious, well set out and confortable villa especially suitable for families with older children or groups where some privacy is a bonus. The views from the terrace are just beautiful and a focal point for socialising and eating. Stari Grad is a lovely little harbour town with all the amenities you need a short stroll away. Good supermarket, fresh fruit market, surgery, chemist, deli, shops, art galleries etc. Restaurants galore at various price points and lovely fresh local food. Other than restaurants, nightlife is limited to a couple of lively bars overlooking the harbour and strolls taken at sunset. Perfect for us aged 16- 50; just enough for those in their 20's but also safe for 16 year olds venturing out too. Those wanting the club atmosphere of Havaar town can get to it easily by car or on the local bus which is easy and convenient to take around the island. A car is not a necessity here. Local transport, the odd reasonable taxi, cycling and walking are all here and make everything accessible. We were more than happy to walk a few minutes to the nearest pebbly beaches which are small local coves with clean water. The nearest on the side of the villa had a couple of lovely little restaurants overlooking them, some welcome shade, steady supply of drinks, ice creams and a few sun loungers. We had a warm and friendly welcome to Stari Grad, were well looked after throughout our stay and left vowing to return! The people of Stari Grad are particularly charming and welcoming to all. David was very good at accommodating our changes to dates made necessary by a family obligation. Also, the welcome notes and villa information is comprehensive and well thought through. The restaurant recommendations were spot on! A piece of heavenly Havaar!
