An Authentic Farmhouse With A Mediterranean Spirit

Experience Dalmatia at this passionately restored farmhouse tucked away in nature. Its foundations date to the 19th century when the idyllic hamlet of Frajga (name derived from the Latin word for fruits) was still full of life and vigour. With its stone details it exudes strength, resists the abundance of sun and a gust of wind.

In the villa, beamed ceilings, white walls and vibrant natural fabrics play up its rustic character. The whole interior decoration is inspired by the vivid colours of fruit that grow all over the island. By using the backdrop as its influence the villa has kept its original charm.

21st century amenities, such as an infinity pool, internet connection, mosquito nets, daily cleaning, delivery of groceries and pre-stocking, guarantee the maximum of comfort.
History harmoniously mixed with contemporary – the Mediterranean way of life at its best.
