"Villa Mendes" is the perfect place to stay, especially if you enjoy total privacy and peace. We have stayed at many different villas, all over the World, over the last 15 years and can honestly say that this was our best one ever!
The dead-end track leading from the main road to the villa is 2-3 km long, so definitely no passing traffic, but you may prefer a 4WD or SUV if you plan on driving up and down it often.
The rooms are all tastefully furnished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean (like the rest of Croatia). The views from every room are simply stunning and the layout of the accommodation allows for family or friends spending time together, but still maintaining privacy between each bedroom area.
Outside, the pool area is just fantastic and the private ocean front is great for swimming in the clear blue water or exploring along the rocks and pools. The ocean goes flat when the wind drops, and you can actually see huge shoals of small fish swimming by.
We spent most of our time relaxing at the villa and took advantage of the services of top chef Franko some nights, who cooked us fabulous and authentic Croatian meals using local produce, some grown himself. We also found fantastic restaurants in local Jelsa and further away Hvar, both beautiful ports where you can enjoy boat trips or just chill out.
It was only the two of us this time, but we are already planning to return with our friends, another three couples, next year and take full advantage of all the facilities.
The hospitality and communication from Mario and Margarita Mendes was outstanding, never intrusive, but always there to help. A really lovely couple, with very high standards.
To sum up "Villa Mendes" really is the experience of a lifetime!!
