Luxury villa in Sumartin
Villa Ivy is a spectacular waterfront property ingeniously designed directly on the water’s edge. Newly constructed on three levels the villa is an outstanding example of modern Dalmatian architecture. The house is luxurious and elegant and has been created using the best of everything, from the striking crystal chandeliers, to the finest stone sinks, beautiful fabrics and contemporary furnishings. Carefully thought out by an interior designer, every attention to detail and comfort has been considered. Built as a family home, a reflection of modern family attitudes, it has large and incredibly light and airy rooms opening on to extensive terraces, partly shaded, comfortably furnished and very well equipped for outdoor living. Created using the finest white Brac stone as seen on the American White house, villa Ivy is one of the few villas given a 5 star categorisation by the Croatian tourist board. Staffed with a house maid and villa host, this is a property in which guests can truly relax and be looked after from the moment they arrive.
Individually and stylishly decorated with uncluttered elegance, all the bedrooms open out onto terraces with fabulous views over the bay of Sumartin and the Biokovo mountain range. Cushions, blinds and bedspreads are rich and textured, with silks and materials sourced from around the world. All the air-conditioned bedrooms have Egyptian cotton linens with opulent bathrooms and plenty of fluffy towels to pamper oneself with after a day in the sea or around the pool.
The stylish kitchen has uninterrupted views over the bay and holds all the gadgets needed to make cooking and hosting a pleasure. The living room combines contemporary furniture, artwork and sculpture mixed with antique and vintage pieces from France and India.
Moving to the outside area of the property you will find the stone infinity pool with stunning views over its horizon edge to the turquoise bay and mountains beyond. The pool has four infinity edges and an endless swimming jet. Surrounding the swimming pool there are plenty of sun loungers for you to enjoy a lazy day in the sun. Being a waterfront property, the villa is perfect for fishing fans who can relax and enjoy fishing from the jetty. The dining terrace has fabulous views of the mountain range in the evening making it the ideal spot to dine on the days catch. Canoes and windsurfing equipment can be used for playing in the bay.
The villa is ideally located for exploring the beaches and islands of the Dalmatian Coast. There are a few small beaches within the bay itself with many more in nearby coves. However no matter where you go you may be sure you will find perfectly transparent, clean unpolluted sea.
There are nine small fishing harbours to explore on the island plus several inland villages. Each has its own attractive character.
The closest restaurant is roughly 100 meters away. It is a small family restaurant which is only open during the summer. It also delivers food to the villa if required. There are several restaurants in Sumartin which is approximately 1 km away at the other side of the bay. There are a couple of restaurants within 20 minutes which are only accessible by boat. There are a number of restaurants in nearby villages with the largest concentration in the town of Bol which is approximately 20 km away.
The Villa has a mooring for visiting boats and larger vessels can be anchored in the bay or in Sumartin harbour. A boat and skipper can be hired on a daily basis allowing guests to be transported to other islands and to experience a full range of water sports. Daytrips can be made to the island of Hvar, Vis, Korcula and Bol.
