Hvar, Hvar Island, Split-Dalmatia County, Dalmatia
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 undiscovere... Read more

We stayed at Birdsong cottage last summer for our first family holiday and we had. Simply wonderful Time. Hazel was fantastic at helping us with all our travel arrangements to the island and was great with local knowledge. The views are lovely and the village of Brusje is quiet and relaxing just perfect after a busy day in Hvar Town....

Management response:

Thanks for the lovely review Caroline and you are welcome back anytime!

Birdsong Cottage is a hidden gem in the small hill village of Brusje with beautiful views of the sea. This cottage will suit somebody wanting to stay off the beaten track in an authentic village. You do need a car to stay here but that will allow you to explore all of the beautiful little hidden beaches dotted around the...

Situated outside busy and ever-popular Hvar town but near enough to pop in ,Brusje is great place from which to explore the island. Birdsong cottage is clean and well appointed,offering stylish and comfortable accomodation. Great sun trap terrace where I enjoyed my morning coffee Nearby walks across the hills affording amazing views across unspoilt scenery.

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.

About the neighbourhood
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...

How to get there
Ferry: Hvar Town - Catamaran: 6.0 km
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.
