Villa Gala - Availability

This house is absolutely AMAZING!
Completely private, Unreal sound system, spacious rooms, clean linens, large entertaining spaces, Indoor and Outdoor pools...and it is steps away from downtown Jelsa with all the charming cafes and shops! I feel like we stepped into our own private luxury palace. Myself and 9 friends partied like Rock Stars and spend 6 days soaking up the charms of Jelsa and Hvar all while enjoying this fantastic home. Our host, and his family were so accommodating, they went out of their way to arrange excursions on private beaches for us, private in house dinners, transfers to Hvar Nightclubs and even arranged for us to travel to Dubrovnik via 2 speed boats versus spending an entire day traveling via cabs and buses. I would go back in a heartbeat, this house made me fall in love with Croatia, I'll be back!

There is nothing like it..This was the second time that we stayed in Villa Gala and we're absolutely in love with it.
The first time we stayed there for a month and the second time for two weeks. We come all the way from New York to enjoy this wonderful property with a superb location in the heart of Jelsa with our Croatian family and friends.
The four bedrooms are spacious with extremely comfortable beds. A lot of attention was put into decorating the house, so the villa looks even better in real life than it does on the photographs. You can find there everything that you need for a perfect stay. A great addition is the large pool that can offer instant refreshment.
Another great thing about the villa is the close proximity to the most beautiful beaches, wineries, shops and restaurants that offer traditional and delicious food. You can literally walk everywhere. It's also great for biking. Every night we had dinner in another spot and the food was always superb. If you would like to visit the Town of Hvar (and you definitely should) it's going to take you only 20 minutes of a very easy car ride.
And last but not least, the owners were our friends. This year they recommended a beautiful hike to Grapceva cave which is the cradle of Hvar's civilization (a prehistoric finding) and we all loved it. They introduced us to Jelsa's winemaker Andro Tomic who's vineyard was named the best vineyard in Central Dalmatia in 2014. We really tasted some great wines and even brought some back to the U.S. The owners also coordinated a wonderful boat trip to a gorgeous bay where we had lunch and were swimming in the cleanest water that we've ever seen. And the best thing about it was that no one else was around!
Although we travel around the world all the time and we've seen many beautiful things out there, nothing compares to the beauty of island Hvar. When we come to Villa Gala we feel like we're home and we never want to leave.
Do yourself a favor and visit Villa Gala if you can. You will never regret it. We cannot wait to come again next year!

Amazing House and Staff
I went with a group of friends (8 of us) and the house was amazing! The staff that helped us cleaned the place daily - they had private chefs come in and cook for us per our request. They were extremely accommodating and we will likely book again next year.
