Hvar Island, Croatia
The Sunday Telegraph, January 2014
"In contrast to Dalmatia's traditional stone cottages, Villa Meneghello Hvar is a slick modern seaside residence filled with quirky contemporary artworks. Set in a rocky garden with a pool, it's one of my favourite places to stay on Hvar. The owner, Dagmar Meneghello, is an art collector, and has filled the villa with more than 100 paintings and sculptures by Croatian artists. You also get wooden floors, coloured tiles and several outdoor eating spaces. The villa can be rented as a whole, or as two apartments."
