This fabulous property, known as Jasmine Apartment, is a beautiful old stone building, in the Venetian style, which has everything you could want for the perfect holiday. It was renovated by its English owners to an extremely high standard of style and comfort, yet retaining much of the Venetian character of the outer building.
As you approach the front door you pass under a pergola of bougainvillea by the gate. The large garden terrace has wonderful views across the bay and out to sea and is spilling with tubs of colourful pelargoniums. There is plenty of space for four comfy sunbeds, with deep cushions, and then round a corner in the shade you'll find the dining table and four chairs for outside dining.
Inside there is a beautiful sitting room with sofa (can become a double bed), flat-screen TV and great views from the floor to ceiling glass doors. Along one side of the sitting room is the kitchen which is very well equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster and every utensil you could wish for. It also has a washing machine + tumble dryer.
There is a spacious and romantic bedroom with super-king-size bed and a large ensuite shower room. There are lovely views from the bedroom window and french doors to one part of the terrace garden.
Jasmine apartment is located in a quiet village just a few steps above a pretty, bustling quayside with its shops and restaurants, on the charming island of Vis. It is completely private from Jasmine villa.
The great advantage of this location is that you don't need a car the whole time. Your evenings can be much more relaxing as you stroll around the bay deciding on your restaurant for the evening.
The property occupies the prime position on the bay, so it has wonderful views over the bay of Vis which is a picture postcard setting. There is a beautiful monastery on a promontory at the far side, a tiny island in the middle of the bay, and of course the turquoise Adriatic sea. You can watch the yachts and fishing boats come and go, and enjoy the evening sun as it sets across the bay. Vis is blessed with some stunning sunsets.
The island of Vis would suit people who want a completely different holiday, dislike commercialisation, and enjoy really good food and wine. They may also have an interest in history (lots of naval history), sailing, diving (Greek, Roman and 16c/17c/18c wrecks), vineyards, ecology (said to be the only totally organic island in the world) and incredible ice-cream.
The island is one of the few genuinely unspoilt islands in the Mediterranean - no high-rise hotels or villa parks here - yet it has a sophisticated Dalmatian culture and excellent food.
There are three main villages on the island - Vis 'Town' and Kut are on either side a a fabulous C-shaped bay on the north-eastern coast, while Komiza, a tiny fishing village is on the far west side of the island. The mountainous interior is scenic, well worth visiting. There are great beaches near to all the 3 main villages, and a few smaller ones down the east and south coast of the island, near to Stoncica, Milna and Rukavac. There are both pebble and sand beaches on Vis.
Please be aware that Vis is a hilly island and both Vis Town, Kut and Komiza have several sets of stone steps, usually on the lanes leading down to the quayside or towards the beaches. This holiday is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
