Villa Safir Biser is a luxurious four bedrooms property located on the southern coastline of the picturesque Dalmatian island of Ciovo. Being within a district of the historic town of Okrug Gornji and a short drive away from Trogir, a world heritage site, the villa’s position is ideal for visitors keen to sample the myriad delights of the Dalmatian Coast.
Villa Sapphire Pearl has a modern and understated elegance. The villa sleeps 10 and boasts an exciting array of facilities including a glamorous jacuzzi and large sauna. With stunning vistas over the clear azure depths of the Adriatic Sea and an extensive infinity pool, Villa Sapphire Pearl is undoubtedly the ultimate in civilised Mediterranean bliss.
The villa’s interior is contemporary and elegant. Stylish furnishings complement spacious, well-appointed living spaces and guests will admire the ornately designed staircase-balustrade leading up to the bedrooms from the open-plan kitchen, living and dining room.
This space is remarkably light and airy with large single-pane windows and sliding doors that give a fabulous aspect and view in almost any direction. All this makes for a wonderfully laid-back and tranquil atmosphere which guests will relish.
Villa Safir Biser is meticulously designed, offering some excellent features and amenities for the entertainment and comfort of all who stay. Most notable of these are the sensational infinity-pool with its unique water-feature, jacuzzi, sauna and barbecue, all of which offer hours of healthy relaxation.
Within the fresh and airy open-plan kitchen, dining and living room, there is a flat-screen TV with cable access for those who want time out watching sport or a favourite movie. The kitchen provides state of the art appliances, and there is a large dining table for eating indoors.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are large and comfortable with marvellous views. The en-suite bathrooms are strikingly fresh and elegant with white ceramic double basins, and marble surrounds. A beautiful tub with views over the sea, town and hills beyond will have guests reluctant to relinquish its charms to another…
The master suite has its spacious terrace furnished with wicker chairs and twin sunbeds on which to have some ‘private’ time to have a glass of wine, read a book or gaze out onto the bright hues of the Adriatic.
Outside, the villa continues to impress. The infinity-pool is embellished with a beautifully designed smaller, raised pool with a transparent side over which the waterfalls - perfect for the little ones to splash around in. When not cooling off or playing tag in the refreshing blue water, guests can bask on the sun-loungers or get stuck into some holiday reading.
The outside dining area is particularly pleasing with a barbecue and attractive table and chairs for leisurely and delicious al fresco dining while taking in the glorious panorama, the sunsets and the nighttime stars.
Villa Safir Biser is located in Put Diruna, an easterly district of the traditional Dalmatian town of Okrug Gornji which is one of the oldest settlements on the small (9 miles x 2 miles) island of Ciovo. A drawbridge charmingly connects the island itself to the UNESCO heritage town of Trogir.
As such, the villa is an easy walk from the centre of Okrug Gornji (1.4KM) and a 15-minute drive from beautiful Trogir. The much-loved city of Split is about an hours drive from the villa.
Steeped in antiquity, Okrug Gornji offers much that will keep visitors occupied. Okrug beach is a favourite with both locals and those who are visiting; nicknamed ‘Copacabana’ and boasting spectacular white-sand beaches, it is the perfect location from which to sample the delights of the Trogir Riviera.
Okrug Gornji also caters well to the culinary appetites of its visitors with an exciting array of beachside restaurants matched to most budgets and tastes.
Around the bay from Okrug Gornji lies the beautiful Konoba Duga beach. Secluded and serene, visitors can spend happy afternoons basking on the sand or may take delightful boat trips to explore the nearby Islands of Fumilia or Solta.
For those more inclined towards historical exploration, nearby Trogir, which bridges Ciovo to the mainland, is entrancing. Characterised by a unique fusion of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, Trogir’s rich and varied history - of the Ancient Greeks, the empires of Rome and Byzantium, of the Ottomans and the Hapsburgs - is accessible to all who roam through its streets.
As evidenced by its status as a UNESCO world heritage site, there are myriad palaces, cathedrals and churches for visitors to explore. The Church of Saint Lawrence, for example, is a magnificent example of the Romanesque-Gothic style, being partly designed by the Croatian master Radovan.
Other notable historic sites include the Cipiko Palace, the St. Michael Bell-tower and the Karmalengo Castle.
For those keen to get a flavour of local culture, there is a wealth of opportunity in Trogir. The plethora of lively restaurants offering Croatian culinary delicacies and the renowned local grappa, as well as a vibrantly colourful market scene, will delight all.
