“Even better than last year”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We have just had another wonderful stay here. We were welcomed like old friends by Christine and Aida who maintain a very high standard of comfort and service yet the atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. We particularly appreciated the shady garden as the temperatures were unusually high during our stay. The breakfasts on the shady terrace are delicious.
We explored more of the island this visit and found the history and culture fascinating and the people very friendly and keen to help us appreciate it We visited the School of Stonemasonry in Pucisca, the museum in Skrip.and the top of Vidova gora, where there is a wonderful view of Bol and nearby islands We also had a delicious Sunday lunch at Konoba Kopacina in Donji Humac, where the specialty is the herb flavoured island lamb. We are hoping to return next year

Unique and charming hotel with a competent staff. Beautiful garden and terrace for an unforgetable breakfast with the famous fig marmelade.

Room Tip: I slep in the same bed than François-Joseph emperor, if you want such experience ask for room 4.

Christine, Aida and their team are striving for perfection and complete guest satisfaction every day, their attention to detail is reflected in beautiful bedrooms, lovely gardens, immaculate cleanliness, and wonderful breakfasts. We thoroughly enjoyed a 7 day stay in May/June, and were bowled over by Bol - great atmosphere, restaurants, bars, beaches and scenery.

We had a wonderful stay here in early May 2012. This is a classy hotel, nicely furnished and maintained, with beautiful gardens front and back. It provides a very high standard of service, with first rate breakfasts on the outdoor terrace. Christine and Aida are consummate innkeepers – along with the support staff, they were always looking for ways to make our stay more relaxing and comfortable. They are warm and generous people. Bol, we imagine, gets to be pretty crazy in July and August, but in early season it was a very pleasant place to wander, wade, sip wine along the old harbour, and relax.

A perfectly located, beautiful gated house set in a gorgeous garden.

Our room was spacious and had a great shower. It was a little dark, but we didn't spend too much time inside! It backed onto the garden where chairs and recliners are set out for guests to enjoy.

The breakfasts were AMAZING - a fantastic selection of freshly squeezed juices, deli meats, cheeses, cereals, breads and eggs cooked to order. All served on the pretty shaded patio overlooking Bol.

The Villa is located 5 minutes from the town centre and 15 minutes walk from Zlatni Rat.

Christine was extremely helpful prior to our stay in ensuring we had ferry timetable information and was a great host - informative and friendly, but not overbearing in anyway.

What a great place.

I stayed at Villa Giardino for one week. This place is one of the loveliest i have ever been at! if you want to get some rest from noisy and fussy cities and enjoy solitude this place is the very right choice. It felt like i spent there the whole month.
The building and the whole area are beautiful. Absolutely lovely garden where you can spend an afternoon reading, eating or even sleeping, i think. Excellent breakfast!
The staff (just three-four people) are very friendly and very helpful, but at the same time you dont notice them, feels like at home, you dont feel its a hotel.
I traveled alone and my room was on the upper floor just under the roof. All was very good, especially sea window view. In this place you have everything you need, nothing to complain about which is extremely rare nowadays.
And i think its a very good place for couples! ))

Room Tip: i think all rooms are ok. Mine was good for one, but for two people i think there is no enough space...
