If you decide to visit Sv.Nedjelja, a litlle fishing and agricultural village, you will realize why the island of Hvar is among the10 most beautiful in the world.This drastic beauty cannot leave you untouched especially here, on its southern side.
Because of its specific location, Sv.Nedjelja is getting more and more popular among lovers of free climbing, mountain biking, hiking… Mild climate allows them to enjoy these sports all year long. Behind, there is St.Nicholas, the highest peak of the island and the cave with remains of Augustinian monastery from the 16th century.
A special position of its vineyards puts Sv.Nedjelja on the very top in production of high quality vintage vines. These wines, especially red ones have won many awards in Croatia and abroad.
We produce wines ourselves, as well as rosmary, lavander and sage honey, olive oil and herb brandy.
You reach the sea from our villa by short walk through old pine wood.
Croatia is constantly building new motorways and nowdays it is very easy to reach Split from Rijeka, Karlovac or Zagreb. Visitors arriving from Italy, Slovenia or Hungary can drive on the motorway almost all the way to Split, except at three short interruptions.
Upon arriving to Split, follow the „Ferry“ sign. There are several sailings a day between Split and Starigrad (Hvar). The ferry timetable schedule can be found on: www.jadrolinija.hr or at the phone +385 21 33 83 33.
After getting off the ferry, turn left to Jelsa (12 km), and than at the crossroads in Jelsa, turn right to Sv.Nedjelja. Follow the charming, narrow road passing through olive groves, vineyards, and the picturesque village of Pitve until you reach the unique tunnel which connects the northern and southern side of the island. As you exit the tunnel, the stunning sea view will be waiting for you and few more minutes drive to Sveta Nedjelja.
Sv.Nedjelja can also be reached from the road Stari Grad-Hvar ie. instead of turning left from the ferry port to the direction of Jelsa, turn right to the town of Hvar. As you get out of the tunnel you will notice 2 turnings on the left hand side. The first one leads to the St.Nicholas-the highest peak of the island and the next one to Sv.Nedjelja. This part of the road is still not finished, it is a macadam road (6 km), but in spite of that most local people and tourists drive this way to Sv.Nedjelja simply because it is shorter and all the way you can enyoj the stunning views to the sea and surrounding islands.
Alternatively, you can take the ferry from Drvenik (80 kms from Split to the south) to Sućuraj on Hvar. The ferry timetable schedule can be found on: www.jadrolinija.hr or at the phone +385 21 33 83 33.
