Birdsong cottage is an old stone house located in a small peaceful (early 16th century) village called Brusje, just 6km from Hvar Town. It is the ideal place to either join the sophisticated throng with all the bars and restaurants in Hvar Town or escape to the quiet of the village within a ten minute drive, where the breeze blows cool at night and you feel that you could almost touch the stars. The village is situated in the middle of lavender fields and the house has simply breathtaking seaviews across to the islands of Brac and Solta. There is a restaurant within a 5 minute walk and the local guest house (2 mins walk away) has just started an evening dining facility - if you book to eat there you can use their swimming pool.

For snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing, Brusje has several bays which are (as yet!) pretty much undiscovered by tourism - the closest one is 3 km away. The area is also very popular with cycling groups, walkers and those interested in nature. You can walk for hours in the hills behind the house and hardly see another living soul... In short Birdsong Cottage is the perfect place to escape from the world and totally recharge your batteries...More

Additional amenities & feature info
Birdsong Cottage is themed in a way which reflects the colours of the surrounding countryside and the amazing sea views. Refurbished recently, it encompasses a large well equipped kitchen/ breakfast room on the ground floor with a double sofa bed. This room has glass and ornamental iron doors which open to the outside. There is also an additional relaxed living space with a very large sofa bed on the first floor with stunning sea views across the village over to the islands of Brac and Solta. Also on the first floor is a blue mosaic shower room. The newly updated terrace is situated at the back of the house, which flows directly off the living room and has been designed as an extra 'chilled out' space with voile curtains and a roof which can be adjusted for shade or sun. Steep stairs lead to the 2 attic bedrooms, one double and a single - the double room has amazing panoramic seaviews and the single room has a pretty green view across to the large almond tree.

About the neighborhood
A magical place - an undiscovered Mediterranean with Venetian architecture and ancient white stone squares, stained pink as the sun sets - it is virtually unchanged by the march of time. There is a lot to do and see there, places of cultural interest to visit include open air classical music concerts performed in the cloisters of the Franciscan monastery, stunning restaurants and bars, boat trips, amazing sea views from the old Spanish fort and plenty of nightlife. There is a very upbeat vibe in the Summer as expensive yachts moor up along the quay and the beautiful people arrive. Don't be surprised if you spot a famous face - Prince Harry was seen diving fully clothed into a swimming pool at a large open air night club! The house is situated In the hills, just 6 km from Hvar Town in ...
How to get there
Split is the closest international airport. There are aiport coaches readily available to meet each flight, which go non stop to the port, from where you can either catch a catamaran to Hvar Town, foot passengers only (duration one hour) or a ferry to Stari Grad (2 hours). It is probably cheaper to hire a car on the island rather than hiring one on the mainland and then pay to take it over on the ferry.
