The beginnings of the Hotel Villa Andrea – this story is about a piece of paradise on the coast of the Adriatic Sea where you can hear the noise of waves and the twitter of birds. The view stretching over the open sea catches the islands of Brac and Hvar in the distance and is filled with heavenly pleasures.
This is why the owner of the hotel, Mr. David Cain, wishes to share that piece of paradise with his guests by providing them with a top facility where they will get high quality service and where, most of all, they will feel just like at home.
On that journey he has gathered the most skilful managers – a married couple, the Marijancevics who put together a team of true enthusiasts and turned their excitement for working in hospitality into the finest service thereby creating a hotel, which is unique and warm and unlike any other.

Tourist board of Vrboska
Along a narrow and curving fjord , unusual only as wonders are on Hvar island, there lies Vrboska – the smallest town on the island.
But even if it is the smallest, Vrboska is the treasure of the island. Founded in the 15th century, it is often reffered to as "Little Venice" due to numerous small bridges.
From the entrance, which is its widest part, surrounded with thick pine forest, it narrows curving into a canal along both sides of which are situated picturesque architectural objects of Gothic, Neo- Renaissance and Baroque style.
The narrow, curving, streets, the pine forest, the stone buildings and a small islet in the middle of the cove, bathed in sunshine and hidden in the depths of the bay. An image resembling those from old postcards…
This little place will bring life back to a tiresome body, and necessary peace to one's spirit. Everyone can verify this by coming here.
The Vrboska area was inhabited even in ancient times, to which ruins of Roman building testify. It grew from a fishermen's village and harbour to a place called Vrbanj (hence its own name Vrboska) in 15th century into a small town which outshines even the bigger and better known places on the island by its beauty.
Vrboska is comprised of two parts. Pjaca (eastern part) and Podva (western part).
Typical Mediterranean local architecture of small houses on both sides of the canal connected to old town houses from the periods of Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque, as well as old churches on one side of the canal and rich villas on the other side gives the place special charm and warmth.
A rich fishermen's tradition in Vrboska can easily be seen in the local gastronomic offer. Healthy food from surrounding fields and freshly caught fish with home-made olive oil and aromatic herbs represents a unique gourmet experience.
Add a glass of one of Hvar's well known wines and the experience is complete.
