Save to favouritesPrintMailVilla MeneghelloThe Meneghello family have built a great reputation for creating bohemian-style villas set amidst lush botanical gardens. Their artistic retreat on the islet of [h:CR002:Palmizana] is one of Croatia's most idyllic island hideaways, and in 2007 they purchased this 2-storey villa overlooking the turquoise sea on the edge of Hvar Town to expand their collection. Available as 2 separate 3-bedroom apartments or a large villa, it's a haven for friends or families who want to escape the mainland's crowds. Set in a rocky hillside garden of towering pines and exotic blooms, it feels very private, yet it's only a 15-minute walk into Hvar Town for sailing or glitzy evenings out. The décor is at once eclectic and vibrant, with bright colours and big bold oil paintings filling the walls. The [i!!upper apartment] has a harlequin theme of primary colours, whilst the [r:CR007:ground floor] is decked out in a more subdued, black-and-white style. The bedrooms are funky, the living areas light and spacious, and there's an outdoor kitchen for evening BBQs, plus a pool. But for us what makes this villa so special is Dagmar Meneghello’s private art collection. The entire complex is something of a live-in gallery, a homage to modern Croatian art. Dagmar has been patronising contemporary painters and sculptors since the 1960s, and has some 150 pieces on display here. She also has an amazing flair for combining Hvar’s traditional stone and driftwood sculptures with quirky modern design pieces. Very inspiring.
