Villa with private pool, tennis court and sea views : The Dvor Sv. Juraj is nestled in a field of lavender, rosemary, fig and olive trees, and it used to offer respite to field workers while working in the fields, a place where they could escape the hot Mediterranean sun or warm themselves by a hot Dalmatian hearth, drink a glass of wine and eat good local cheese and pršut (smoked ham). Like many other Courts throughout Dalmatia, this one still lives the life of our ancestors, surrounded by pristine nature.
Distinctiveness you will foll in love with: The Dvor Sv. Juraj is nestled in a field of lavender, rosemary, fig and olive trees, and it used to offer respite to field workers while working in the fields, a place where they could escape the hot Mediterranean sun or warm themselves by a hot Dalmatian hearth, drink a glass of wine and eat good local cheese and pršut (smoked ham). Like many other courts throughout Dalmatia, this one still lives the life of our ancestors, surrounded by pristine nature.
Stone, quietness and scent of the Mediterranean: The Dvor was built from Hvar grey stone, the same one used to build the 3 km away hundred-old village Humac, harmoniously situated on the throne of the Island of Hvar, in the centre of a stone field, in a sea of stillness surrounded by endemic plant varieties. It originally emerged as a separate hamlet in which general food staples were cultivated, the most important ingredients of the popular and healthy Mediterranean cuisine which has become so popular of late, and today continues the tradition of production of superior olive oil, wine and spices.
In touch with nature: Along with the ideal opportunities for jogging, bike excursions, long walks, but also laying by the pool, the Dvor Sv. Juraj also offers recreation activities with basketball, beach volleyball and bocce field.
To ensure that your holiday at the Dvor is filled with various activities, along with pleasant walks you can also visit the hundred year old village Humac, Grapeva cave which is the oldest site from the Neolithic area in Dalmatia, then down the northern path across the Greek fort Tor (IV century B.C.) and the late antiquity castrum of the City Galešnik (VI century) you will reach the town Jelsa. By car, in only fifteen minutes, you will reach the sea and pass by numerous coves where the sea is unbelievably clean. The coastline is indented, a little rocky with flat stone planes and sunny coves. The underwater world is ideal for scuba diving. The entire island abounds in forests, and even the beaches in their hinterland offer shade under hundred year old Mediterranean pine tree.
We spent a wonderful week in this extraordinary property in the heart of the island. For a family of 2 adults and 4 kids this was a deliberating experience of freedom, comfort and refined luxury but in an unspoiled relation to the nature and local tradition. The property is really spatious and well maintained, views are magnificent, service is excellent and there are plenty outdoor activities available. Location is ideal for hiking, jogging or (mountain)biking. For the romantic ones the starry nights and "silence to hear" is unforgettable. Not to be recommended for those who can't live without urban flair, seaside promenades and beach-and-bar activities. Although we have experienced many similar properties in France and Italy, this one is definitelly top-ranked.
As a group of 7 adults and 3 children we spent a wonderful week in this extraordinary place, which has everything we needed and even more: very nice and helpful owners, an excellent tennis court, a big and well equipped kitchen with nice dining tables indoors as well as outdoors (with barbecue), an extra terrace with sofa-like seats, a pool with fantastic view to the see, huge property, measuring about 30.000 m2 in total, quite near to Jelsa for shopping, cleaner every morning etc. etc. - so in order to enjoy the typical island flair of hvar without missing some luxury we can warmly recommend Court St. George, which even exceeded our high expectations (due to the nice advertising fotos): all of us including the children loved it a lot and we hope to return next summer!
The old Dalmatian rural Dvor Sv. Juraj, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century bathed in sunlight and enveloped with scents dominates the estate which extends over 30,000 m², was recently completely renovated in authentic style. Situated on the wondrous Island of Hvar from which on clear nights one can see the lights of Italy, surrounded by cypress trees, lavender, rosemary and sage, it will provide an unforgettable romantic holiday for 8 people within a labyrinth of stone fences, in the quite stillness of a field, 30 min from the town of Hvar, 2 h from Split.
