About Property Manager
Although we originally hail from the USA and the UK, we have spent our lives living abroad and travelling throughout the world. With such a hectic lifestyle, we try to escape to the island of Hvar as often as possible, where we totally relax and enjoy the beautiful and healthy surroundings!
Property Manager purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Property Manager chose Pitve
We love places with a sense of history, authenticity, beauty and charm. Pitve, a medieval village with cobblestone streets, has all of this, and we think that we have found a unique gem. We greatly enjoyed renovating The Architect's House to a high standard, maintaining its structural and rustic character, but at the same time ensuring a high quality to the interior design, importing fixtures and furniture from various parts of Europe. We also love the fact that it is very cosmopolitan - of course, there are many local Croatians live in the village, who wholeheartedly welcome owners and visitors from all over the world - but also, it is very inclusive, with no one group of foreign nationals predominating. We also love the friendliness in the village - which is one reason so many guests return again and again - they, like us, really enjoy the welcome!
What makes this Villa unique
The Architect's House is close to the sea and wonderful seaside villages and beaches - all offering so much to do and see. However, the special benefit of Pitve is that, at the end of a day at the beach or in town, you can escape the crowds to the most special and charming hideaway. Pitve has no commercial enterprises - except for one highly-acclaimed restaurant - a real bonus to be able to enjoy a wonderful meal without having to get into a car! Additionally, The Architect’s House is located in a pedestrian cul-de-sac , which makes it very private. It is such a treat to return from a day’s nearby excursion and have the choice of strolling to a family-run restaurant/taverna, or just stay home and have a quiet evening dining in your very own stone courtyard (P.S. – Ivica, the owner of the Dvor Dubokovic restaurant in Pitve, has been known to be very graciously accommodating if asked to prepare one of his superb meals for you to take back and enjoy a romantic dinner in the privacy of The Architect’s House)!
