Formerly a private residence, this neoclassical villa is in the center of Stari Grad, or Old Town, on Hvar. This is one of the oldest settlements in Europe, dating back to 384 B.C.E., and it's much quieter than Hvar Town, a summer party locale. It sits on a deep water channel across from the mainland, which makes it a popular spot to moor yachts and sailboats, and the pink-and-white villa overlooks the main harbor and docks. The owner named his villa after the Greek god Apollo, and the seven suites are named after some of the Greek muses. All are individually furnished with wood furniture, Oriental rugs, and long curtains, as well as having large en suite bathrooms with heated floors and claw-foot tubs. The harborside terrace restaurant serves breakfast and makes a great spot to watch the comings and goings on the waterfront. After touring the town, guests can explore the island, hiking in the pine-covered hills, winetasting, or swimming in the small coves and bays.
