“Perfectly placed, in a peaceful setting with the town and beaches within easy reach.”

This was our first visit to Croatia and we stayed at Birdsong Cottage. The cottage is built from beautiful old stone, giving it lots of charm and character. It’s very well equipped, tastefully decorated and thought has been given to the finishing touches. The house is perfectly placed in a small, peaceful village a short drive from Hvar town.

Hazel was great, giving us lots of information about the beaches and restaurants beforehand and advising on the best travel arrangements from Split airport to the cottage. The taxi driver Hazel recommended bought our catamaran tickets, collected us from the airport and took us to the port!

We visited several of the ‘not so well known bays’ Hazel recommended all of which are only a short drive from the cottage. All were stunning - the clear water along with the smell of the lavender and the sound of the crickets provided the perfect setting in which to relax.

Hvar Town, although busy, was wonderful. There are lots of restaurants, boutique shops and old stone buildings. Along the cobbled alley ways, trailing plants decorate the old stone buildings that are home to some of the many restaurants and wine bars.

Although a car is essential when staying at the cottage, it does give you the freedom to explore more of the island.

We had a great holiday, the weather was hot, the cottage was great and we would love to go back and explore more of Croatia.

“Feeling like home”

Having been visited lots of places on island Hvar, Birdsong Cottage seems to have been our best choice of accomodation. We had accidentally stumbled upon the alternative while we considered booking. The location is perfect for someone who whishes to stay at a peaceful place but not too far from a town where everything can be found. The town Hvar is just a couple of kilometres far from it so by car (you definitely need it) you can get there very quickly. Birdsong cottage is furbished with a very nice sence of interior design reflecting the typical colours of sea and the surrounding plants such as lavender, fig, etc. Why we really liked it because it is not an average apartment where you can only find the necessary things but you can feel you are in a real home. The owner Hazel was very kind and helpful from the very beginning and called our attention to minor details as well: what is good to know while staying there, which are the places/restaurants to be visited. In a big folder she has collected all the necessary information and based on her experience some very special recommendations. In one sentence it is much more than average and we would very pleased to stay there again!

Loved this town house which felt like home. Had sundowners on terrace at back under the almond tree. All mod cons whilst feeling very authentic. Villagers were v friendly. We slept with doors open and a welcome breeze swept through house. Central to all the beaches the locals use. Deffo going back.
