I was totally impressed with Villa Fio and the service we received.

We were collected on arrival and dropped off as we left from the bus station by Antonia, who was lovely and very welcoming. We were given refreshments and Croatian cake as we checked in, which was a nice touch. Antonia was extremely friendly and informative, much more so than I have experienced elsewhere. She was very helpful, providing us with maps, recommendations and making restaurant reservations for us.

Our apartment was fantastic. It was large, spacious and modern with a great balcony overlooking the town. It was cleaned daily and the standard was very high. Fresh towels were also provided each day.

Other extras such as the book exchange and umbrellas to borrow, all make it feel very homely. Antonia gave us warm cake one morning she saw us, which was another nice treat! Antonia and her parents obviously put a lot of thought into Villa Fio.

The location is great for the nicest beach in town! It is a few minutes walk down a rocky path. The town is about a 15 minute walk away on gentle hills, but after all lovely food in Hvar each night we did not mind this!

I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough.

Room Tip: As for a room with a balcony at the front so you overlook the town and the harbour.

We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Fio and would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Hvar. We stayed in the sunset apartment, and had a choice of 2 great balconies to watch the sunset from, it did not disappoint. Antonia was a brilliant host, extremely helpful and friendly. If we come back to Hvar, we would be sure to stay here again.

Staff, environs, rooms, amenities, everything - perfect. The only imperfect thing was a barking dog at 4 AM which wasn't any fault of Marija and her family, but it could be a pain for you if you sleep lightly like my wife.

Really nothing but good things to say like the title says ... stay here!

Room Tip: Go high or go home :-)

What a find!!! I don't know what else to say about this place apart from... Perfect! We could honestly not have asked for more from our accommodation, and the family could not have been more lovely, they picked us up when we arrived off the ferry, recommended and booked restaurants, helped us out with travel and logistics and were just so smiley the whole time, they were so incredibly welcoming it was almost like having a second family. We loved being slightly out of town, it's a pleasurable walk, not too strenuous at all and the views are so pretty from the top of the town. Also, you're next to a fantastic beach, much nicer than the city beaches. Theres a supermarket a short stroll away with breads, fruits, a deli counter etc for all your breakfast/ lunch needs. The room was spotless- you could literally have eaten off the floor it was that clean and our terrace was a little sun trap. I would highly recommend this to all of my friends and family and we considered booking up for October when we were there only to find out they're unfortunately fully booked! Fantastic place, fantastic holiday :-)

I can sum up Villa Fio in one word - perfect! We stayed in the Sunset apartment which had breathtaking views over the whole of Hvar town. The apartment was cleaned every day and was constantly spotless - it also contained everything we needed; cooking equipment, clean towels, comfy bed, TV etc. We wanted for nothing. And the people - Marija and her family were so friendly and helpful; they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They booked restaurants for us, picked us up and dropped us off, they even ran out and bought us an adapter upon learning that we'd forgotten ours!

A couple of the other reviews have mentioned the distance from the main town - this wasn't a problem for us, we found the walk quite pleasant and more than worth it for the views we got in return.

I couldn't recommend Villa Fio more - and I'm sure we'll be back.

Room Tip: The Sunset apartment has the best views.

We traveled across Croatia, and this was our favorite accommodation.

Positives: Large Room, Balcony with great view, kitchen with refrigerator, air conditioning that worked quickly, close to the best beach in Hvar...but the best thing about Villa Fio is that they have the most professional and helpful staff who bent over backwards to answer all our questions, give us recommendations, and make us reservations at the best restaurants. . What separated the staff at Villa Fio from other establishments across Croatia was that, in general Croatians are very helpful and will answer the specific question you ask, but will not volunteer incremental information, even if critical to know. Antonia was extremely helpful and, for example, helped us understand about the ferries and purchasing tickets (which is absolutely CRITICAL to know how the system works when using the ferries to travel to Hvar and Split or you risk not getting a ticket and missing your connections.)

Negatives: Long walk up the hill (but if you want a view...), and far from the city center but walkable. Breakfast is not included, but available upon request for some euros...else there is a market that you can pick up supplies a short walk away.

Antonia was great, the room was above average, and the view was fantastic. We would stay here again if we came back to Hvar no question.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to have good views
