The space
Nestled in a secluded bay on southern Hvar island, down 4km gravel road, you will be greeted with the gorgeous Adriatic sea... and not much else. Medvidina Bay has only a handful of houses and 3 pristine beaches – back to nature, but at its most comfortable.

UNIQUE, INSPIRED, ECLECTIC
––
Formerly a traditional fisherman's house, the recently renovated villa now sleeps up to 10 people, with 4 comfortable queen bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Before we talk about the villa itself, we can't not first talk about the location. It really is as stunning as you see in the photos. The beach is really as close as it looks, and is a very quiet place even in the peak of summer – it goes without saying that this place is absolute heaven for kids and adults alike. The architecture pays homage to its Dalmatian roots while the selective interior design keeps it modern with high quality furnishing and a few quirky vintage pieces.

The perfect spot for families or couples, every small touch has been thought of to ensure a maximally comfortable stay for every guest. All modern amenities are provided, including air conditioning, a dishwasher, a washing machine, a fully equipped kitchen, and a smart TV with Netflix.

SECLUDED GETAWAY PARADISE
––
Nestled in the secluded Medvidina Bay on the southern side of Hvar island, down a 4-kilometre winding gravel road, you will be greeted with La Villa Bleue, the gorgeous Adriatic Sea... and not much else. You will find only a handful of houses in the bay, and three pristine beaches.

​This location is an experience in and of itself. Nature completely envelopes you in the form of crystal clear, turquoise waters softly lapping against the pale grey pebbles of the oh-so-quiet beach, against the backdrop of untamed agave plants and a chorus of cicadas.

​The gravel road down to the bay starts with a turn off the main road spanning the island, between the villages of Gdinj and Zastražišće. It is rocky in places and makes for a bumpy and sometimes steep ride down to the house, but this gravel road serves to ensure the beaches of Medvidina Bay stay quiet, even in the peak of summer.

​Only those who really want a slice of true, quiet paradise will reach this stunning bay.

RELAX, EXPLORE, ENJOY
––
The villa is exceptionally well facilitated. Spend your mornings enjoying freshly-ground coffee on the terrace overlooking the sea before picking up your complementary beach towel and relaxing on the beach. Want to explore the surrounding bays? You have the option of two SUP boards or a 3-person hard kayak – both of which are free for you to use. Want to explore the Adriatic a little further? You can rent the small 4-person, 6HP boat in the bay – or contact us to arrange larger boat rentals.

Want to keep active? We can organise for private yoga, kickboxing, or personal training sessions with our qualified instructors – all on the villa's beachside terrace.

Don't fancy cooking? There is an exceptional restaurant with breathtaking sunset views just in the nearby village of Zastražišće, only a 15-minute drive away. We also have plenty of other restaurant recommendations for you – some slightly closer to home in nearby bays and villages – and also out to the towns of Jelsa, Stari Grad, Vrboska... and in the lively Hvar town itself!

Don't fancy driving? Enjoy a fantastic Dalmatian dinner literally next door. Your neighbour, Antun the fisherman (one of the few other homeowners in the bay), runs a small konoba (restaurant) on his sea view terrace. So just a few steps away, you can enjoy sublime local fish that Antun has caught that day, paired with his homemade wine and cold-pressed olive oil. Meat dishes and vegetarian dishes are also available upon request.

Feeling more adventurous? During your stay at the villa, we will help you to arrange any day trips, excursions, and transport as required. We have trusted, reputable partners for for scuba diving, boat trips, island tours, water sports, and so on.

And when the kids have gone to bed? Introducing Bar School. The legendary bar guru Chris Edwardes lives on the island and is offering exclusive cocktail masterclasses to our guests. Enjoy a paradisiac evening under La Villa Bleue's bamboo beach terrace – Chris not only brings all the alcohol but shows you how to make all your favourite cocktails, and how to put a spin on them like an absolute boss. The price includes all alcohol, fruit, and ice – and pdfs to take with you so you can replicate the magic back at home!

REDEFINING OFF-GRID LIVING
––
Sustainability is now more important than ever. La Villa Bleue is a truly off-grid home, 100% powered by solar. We reimagined what off-grid can look like, so welcome our guests to (mindfully) use all of the modern amenities (AC, washing machine, dishwasher) for a maximally enjoyable stay.

Only the best for the planet, and for our guests. Each bathroom in La Villa Bleue is stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand wash, and lotion from Faith in Nature. These products are not only high quality, but are sustainably made with a 99% natural origin.

​We use refillable glass bottles, so no single use plastics here either.

​This is back to nature, but at its most comfortable.

EXTRA DETAILS
––
La Villa Bleue has four bedrooms, all with comfortable queen size beds and new, luxury sheets. The fourth bedroom is found on the property's third floor, the attic, which also houses an additional single bed. We can position another single bed in there if you are a group of 10. The attic also features an ensuite bathroom, and is accessed via an outdoor staircase.

There is AC only in 3 out of the 4 bedrooms. This is because the ground floor bedroom is positioned "underground" and stays relatively cool, especially at night time.

Behind the house, there is a traditional stone BBQ where you can prepare meals with fresh, local ingredients.

“La Villa Bleue's secluded beachside location promotes a sense of true peacefulness and escapism that will capture your heart and soul from the moment you arrive. It is the ideal setting to drop all worries and distractions, soak up as much of Hvar's infamous sunshine as you can, and create enduring memories with your loved ones."

– Elisha & Matt, your hosts.

Where you’ll be

Gdinj, Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia

Medvidina Bay is serene and tranquil, a true hidden gem on Croatia's premium island offering an experience like no other – pure peace and quiet, with the time and space to bask on the beach in the sun’s rays and to soak up breathtaking views.

​Combine this remote, secluded location with the comfort of 300-thread count bed linens, luxury towels, high-quality toiletries, and a dedicated concierge service – and you've just about found paradise.

Antun's small "restaurant" next door is perfect if you want to stay in the bay for dinner. If you want to head elsewhere, the island is your oyster. There is a Family Farm restaurant in the village of Zastražišće, just a 10-15 min drive away, which offers incredible food and the best sunset views on the island – be sure to book in advance though! We have plenty of other recommendations for you that we are happy to share – some slightly closer to home in nearby bays and villages, and also out to Jelsa, Stari Grad, Vrboska, and in the lively Hvar town itself.

From La Villa Bleue, the drive to Jelsa takes around 40 minutes, and to Hvar town takes around 60.
