Situated at the foot of the mountains in the peaceful village of Vrbanj, The Quaich has 3 self contained cottages surrounding a courtyard & private swimming pool. 5kms from the local ferry port of Stari Grad and 22 kms from Hvar Town. Tri and Dva cottages can sleep 2 adults and 2 younger children. Jedan cottage is suitable for a couple plus one small child/baby. Each cottage is approximately 35 sq m.
The Quaich is a private, wifi complex situated on the edge of Vrbanj village, at the foot of the mountains but only 3km from the sea. Old stone animal houses have been converted into three comfortable but simple self contained cottages. The cottages are completely separate and have own kitchen, shower room, bedroom and living area. Each cottage can sleep 2 comfortably in the bedroom upstairs, however, Dva and Tri also have a sofa bed downstairs suitable for young children. In Jedan we can also put up a single bed for a young child. Tri cottage has an old roll top bath in the bedroom in addition to the shower room downstairs. The cottages can be rented individually or all together for a group of up to six adults plus young children . The accommodation surrounds a private courtyard, with al fresco dining and steps up to a stunning swimming pool which gets sunshine all day. Sunloungers and parasols are all available. A Romantic package can be arranged at extra cost. Welcome pack including wine and basic groceries. Collection from the local port is included in the cost. British proprietors live on site to assist with any of your needs or problems. Cot rental available and no charge for children ten or under.
The Quaich is ideal for either couples or maybe an 'extended' family holiday as you can share the facilities during the day but retire to the privacy of your own cottage at the end of the day.
Many couples who have stayed with us have loved the idea of returning with a group of friends or maybe a larger family group.
As all three cottages open out on to the communal courtyard this is great for families to get together for a meal or drinks but at the same time they have their own private cottage to return to at the end of the day.
Local attractions: There are so many beaches close by you will be spoiled for choice. We have drawn up a list of our favourites so you will have an idea where to go. Snorkeling and diving are very popular and we can arrange sailing, sea kayaking, rock climbing etc for you.
If you would like to hire a car, scooter or bicycle we can put you in touch with a reliable agency.
Jelsa is our closest town, with many cafes and restaurants as well as a nightclub. Plenty ATM's and supermarkets too and a medical centre.
Stari Grad is a wonderfully historic old town to visit and is only 6km from us.
When the sun goes down you may like to visit Hvar (party) Town and enjoy cocktails at the famous Carpe Diem or watch the sun go down to the champagne corks popping in the Hula Bar.
Getting here: The closest airport to Hvar is Split although flights do also come into Dubrovnik and Zadar.
From Split airport it is a 30 minute taxi drive to the ferry port and then a 2 hour crossing on one of the many daily ferries to Stari Grad on Hvar. There is also a daily catamaran to Jelsa.
New for 2015 is the sea plane connection from Split airport direct to Jelsa - only a 10 minute flight.
Once on the island we will collect you at the port and take you the short 15 minute drive to The Quaich where a cool beer will be waiting for you.
Guests will have full use of swimming pool, sun loungers, parasols, pool towels, BBQ. There is also parking approx. 250 m away on private ground adjacent to the local football pitch.
Interaction with guests
We live on site and will collect and return you to the ferry port on arrival and at the end of your stay. We are happy to cook for you and have a menu catering for most tastes. If you prefer not to drive we can arrange taxis for you.
Other things to note
Our prices are based on 2 sharing. We do not charge for children under 10 but there is an additional charge of 500 kuna paid locally to cover the cost of laundry etc. This will be added to your account at the end of your stay.
We would expect our guests to treat our cottages as if they were their own and to respect our neighbours. No smoking is permitted in the cottages.
