Villa pod borom
Reviewed 13 September 2014

We found the villa on TA and found that all the reviews were 100% true, Pod Borom is a place of real peace and quiet. They are also easy to find, Sveta Nedelja does not have too many other quality places to stay. The Villa is run by the daughter of the original owner, she speaks very good English(+ German) and is a very nice person. They have 8-10 apartments and are located right on the sea front which was quite windy while we were there in June so we walked 5 mins to the nearest beach which is unbelievably picturesque. If you walk 2 mins in the other direction you will find one of the most photographed rocky beach on Hvar, so bring your camera. There are 2 great places to eat within 50-100 metres from Pod Borom, the restaurant adjacent to the villa is very good and serves typical Croatian seafood dishes. The local winery is not your average village wine place, they are actually an award winning establishment with exceptional red wine. There is also a climbing center nearby.

One piece of advice : there is a new dirt road that goes to Hvar town the shorter way. This road is not for the faint hearted so do not take it unless you are an experienced driver with very calm passangers.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors could have a better view of the Adriatic but they all face the sea anyway...

This was a dream vacation! We are a young couple, arrived there at the end of July and spent a week in this beautiful villa on the cost of Hvar. The apartment was on the second floor,with a stunning view on the pine trees and the open sea. It was breathtaking, even after hours and hours spent on the very carefully, with a sense of style, decorated balcony. The host Venia and miss Maria made us feel like at home, always providing everything we needed or asked for. The village is like a peace of heaven,due to open sea views and lovely beaches on the one side, and stunning cliffs and vineyards on the other. There is a sense of traditional tourism in the village, with two lovely restaurants, friendly people, and great food. Just about everything has a feeling of home. You should go by car, if you want to see other villages and the city. However, even planned, we had no need to go abroad the island, because the vacation in saint Nedilja was just perfect. It's a place you'll never want to leave and at this villa the comfort and the surroundings will definitely make you craving to come back. At the villa, there is a large fireplace with tables, as well as few areas to sit around the house under the pines, and a big terasse in case you want to sit and enjoy outside your apartment and balcony. You feel like you have a house of your own, not just the apartment. It is definitely recommended!!!

The location is fabulous, directly at the seashore, with a great view, in the shade of pine forest. The apartment (No 8, there were 3 of us, first floor) was nice and clean, with a spacious terrace, well equipped, beds were comfortable. The garden is also very nicely arranged with sunbeds available for all guests. Mrs. Venija and the lady who helped her were really kind and willing to help in any way. Definitely the best place to be on the southern part of the Island. Highly recommended!

Everything about Pod Borum is perfect: garden, view, apartment decoration, position. We spent 6 nights in the ground floor flat at the beginning of July and couldn't have had a better time. Our hostess, Venija, was so hospitable and enthusiastic. The garden which surrounds the house has been designed with peaceful sitting areas and you can move around in sun or shade as the day goes on.
Thank you Venija, we look forward to coming again.

I have selected this place for my 12 day vacation. Long time ago, when I partied in city Hvar, I came to Sveta Nedilja for a good swim. Place is really magically beautiful.
Villa pod borom is the only place with a web page with very fair pictures and descriptions of the apartments.
Couple of tips: to for ground floor apartments as they have direct exit into the garden, which was the best part of our vacation!
Villa has excellent parking lot. Note that coming without car to this place does not make much sense. You will need to get some food to Jelsa(30 min), as local shop in upper part of village holds only basic stuff.
Sveta Nedilja is great place for bikers and hikers. There is road to Hvar (no concrete) 17 km, with california like views in direction of Vis.

And, at the and but very important, is your host, Venija, that will make you feel welcome like you are in your own home.
