Villa Heraclea, Island of Hvar

Villa Heraclea lies in the very center and historical core of the town of Hvar. It lies only 20 meters from the main waterfront (riva), the sea and the promenade, where yachts and boats from all over the world dock in the summer. The magnificent Baroque stone balcony offers a breathtaking view of the waterfront, the boats in the harbor, Fortica Fortress, as well as Paklinski islands, a group of islands that gives Hvar a special atmosphere. The villa was built in 1612, during the Baroque period, when Venice exhibited a strong influence on the entire Adriatic area. Today, it is under the protection of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments. It was first owned by the well-known Stajlia (Stalio) family from Hvar, which engaged in financial business. For a long time it was owned by the Marchi family, one of the oldest Italian families in Hvar. The villa, along with the Gothic house and garden was fully renovated in the period from 2007 to 2009, according to the instructions of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments. The complex has a floor area of 450 m² on three floors, 5 bedrooms with bathrooms, a large living room with a library and fireplace, kitchen and dining room. The lowest floor houses wellness facilities (sauna, Jacuzzi, massage room) and a wine cellar.
