This old building in the very centre of Jelsa, just a few steps from the main square and harbour, was formerly a mill but has been renovated with great taste and sensitivity to form a spactacular and totally unique holiday home with both an indoor pool, an outdoor pool and a very private walled garden. Jelsa itself is one of the prettiest harbour towns on Hvar island. Quieter and more peaceful than Hvar town itself, Jelsa is a perfect location for a relaxing holiday with all the buzz and glamour of Hvar town a short drive or taxi ride away. 

Villa Gallery - Jelsa


Ground Floor

On the ground floor there is a spacious open plan kitchen, a dining area and a large sitting room that opens onto a large garden with a rectangular pool. The whole space is rustic and authentic with beautiful exposed stone walls, old ceiling beams and terracotta floor tiles recreating the original atmosphere of this old villa. However, the designer furnishings are modern. In the stylish sitting room there are two separate sitting areas. At one end there is a comfortable modern yellow sofa with chairs, arranged around a fashionable rug. At the other end there is a blue sofa and more chairs, clustered around the entertainment centre with a satellite TV/DVD player and a good sound system. The whole interior is stunning against the backdrop of old materials of stone and wood. A grand double-height ceiling dining room has a beautiful old dining table which can sit twelve people. A good quality dinner service is provided. The kitchen continues the scheme of rustic simplicity, equipped with a fridge freezer, cooker, hob, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, ice maker, all the cooking utensils, plates, glassware and cutlery. There is also a washing machine, iron and ironing board.

First Floor

On the first floor there are four individually air-conditioned double bedrooms each with its own luxury bathroom/shower room. In two of the bedrooms there is an accessory bed if required. Two people can also sleep on the pull-out sofa bed in the sitting room. The bedrooms are luxuriously furnished and have large double beds with quality bed linen and plenty of towels provided. Each bedroom has an individual character and some have original vaulted brick ceilings. The Italian bathrooms and showers are beautifully tiled and equipped with top of the range bathroom furniture and fittings.

Indoor swimming pool

There is a circular indoor heated pool, providing lots of fun for cooler days. A sauna is in the same area.


The villa has a private garden and courtyard of 200 square metres with an outdoor swimming pool, 15 x 2.5 metres, surrounded by sun loungers and umbrellas. A barbecue and a covered outdoor dining table is next to the pool.

Villa Location Map


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 Gallery we feel like we're home and we never want to leave.

Do yourself a favor and visit Villa Gallery if you can. You will never regret it. We cannot wait to come again next year!

Hvar island

The simplest connection to the island is to fly to Split and connect by ferry from Split ferry port to either Stari Grad (car ferry) or Hvar town (passenger ferry).


The car ferry (Jadrolinja line 635) is a two hour crossing and runs seven times a day in peak season. The last crossing from Split is at 8.30pm although in July and August there is also a 1.30am crossing.   The cost for a car and four adult passengers will be around €65 each way. The fast passenger only catamaran services takes approximatley 55 minutes and arrives directly on the Riva in Hvar town.  There are regular catamaran services provided by Jadrolinija and Kapetan Luka. Refer to their websites for timetables. Tickets on the Kapetan Luka fast catamaran will be around €13.50 a head one way but are cheaper with Jadrolinija.   

Another option is to fly to Dubrovnik. From Dubrovnik Airport to Drvenik on the coast road is 145km (two hours 20 minutes drive) and from here there is a ferry to Sucuraj at the east end of Hvar island. The crossing is 35 minutes and the ferry runs 11 times a day with the earliest departure from Drvenik at 5.45am and the last at 10.45pm (Jadrolinija line 632). However we would warn travellers that the 75km road up the island to Hvar town is very narrow and bendy; a slow route and although scenic a difficult drive.


There is a daily crossing to the pretty harbour town of Jelsa on the north coast of Hvar island. This crossing (line 9603 with Jadrolinija) runs once a day leaving Split in the afternoon and stopping at Bol on Brac island en route. The ferry back from Jelsa to Split departs early in the morning so can provide a day trip from Hvar island to Split or for a day on the Golden Horn beach in Bol on Brac island.   A day trip from Hvar to Korcula town is possible on the Kapetan Luka catamaran service which departs daily in the morning and returns late afternoon. Expect to pay around €30 return. 


Croatian Villa Holidays can organize private taxi boat transfers from the quay near Split airport to Hvar.  Prices will depend on date, time and the numbers in your party. Crossing time generally about 50 minutes to one hour.


Split Airport

Split Airport is located to the west of Split close to the town of Trogir. It is 25 minutes drive from the airport to the ferry port in Split although you should allow longer in mid summer.

Dubrovnik Airport

Dubrovnik Airport is located near the town of Cavtat 19km to the south of Dubrovnik. There are direct flights to Dubrovnik from most European countries and from Philadelphia in the USA.


There are bus and taxi services into Dubrovnik centre. A taxi transfer can be expected to cost around 35 to 40 euro one way depending on the time of day and the season and a minibus around 50-60 euros.   A shuttle bus service from the airport to Dubrovnik is 7.5 euro per person each way. 


Croatian Villa Holidays can arrange taxi transfers directly to your villa.
