The village is brought to life by the colorful sounds of friendly sun-kissed locals and their range of hearty farm animals going about their day-to-day lives.

  Hvar Island, Croatia

Being one of the oldest places on the Hvar island, Dol is a small, quiet and picturesque village filled with old stone houses and surrounded by pine trees and cultivated fields. Stone paved courtyards, taverns, village churches and chapels, green landscapes and meditative silence disturbed only by an occasional bird chirping makes this peaceful village a fairytale kind of place. 

Dol is spread across two valleys – Dol of St. Mary in the west and Dol of St. Anna in the east. A beautiful green hillock with the church of St. Michael the Archangel on its top divides the two valleys. This neighborhood remains unpopulated much of the year, providing deep peace and tranquility for tourists. During summer months, however, the village tends to fill up with holidaymakers, including natives taking up residence in their ancestral summer cottages that have been in the family for generations. 

The village features two local restaurants and a local cafe with WIFI access within walking distance from the retreat. There are no shops, banks or ATM's, and post offices, so please plan ahead, though there is plenty of pure nature with inviting footpaths to explore and unlimited supplies of fresh air to help you relax and disconnect from the stresses of city life.
