This beautifully and expertly restored old castle was built three hundred years ago when it served as a major defence castle against the Mediterranean pirates and various invaders. A small fishing village arose around the castle and now the whole location is a mixture of grandeur and coastal charm. The villa operates as a hotel with seven exceptionally spacious suites and can also be booked for exclusive use for a party of up to 20 people. A boat mooring just in front of the castle accomodates our guests arriving by yacht. Inside, air-conditioning, fabulous bathrooms, spa, gourmet-kitchen and a wonderful collection of antiques provide elegance and luxury, and a 5000 square metre private garden with a large heated outdoor pool, covered loggias and terraces is perfect for rest and relaxation. Guests can use the kitchen themselves or invite a chef to cook for them on request.
The villa is located in a sheltered bay at the western end of the Island of Solta. The island is connected to the mainland by a regular ferry service. The crossing is one hour.
Stone steps from the seafront lead to the heavy wooden door of the villa. The door opens into a grand hall and staircase, with period features retained. A large living room with wood flooring and ceiling beams has a variety of sofas, arm chairs and tables and several chandeliers. Satellite TV/DVD and audio system are in this room which is elegant but also cosy. Another reception room is the music room with a piano. The living room opens out onto a shady terrace and the pool. The kitchen is equipped with all the modern appliances of a professional kitchen, and is for the use of guests. A chef will come and prepare meals on request.
