Dalmatia is a historical region on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea and is exquisitevily beautiful. Two thirds of the way down Croatia's coastline, Split is the biggest attraction in Central Dalmatia. Visit the third century palace of the Emperor Diocletian, one of the best preserved Roman ruins of the area, or the Cathedral of St Dominus which dates back to the 13th century.
The Hvar / Sucuraj area - The island of Hvar is the sunniest island on the Adriatic, and is considered to be one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean. Year after year, the island of Hvar is voted in “Europe's Top Ten most beautiful Islands” in the Conde Nast Reader's Choice Awards. The crystal clear blue waters, abundance of stunning beaches and secluded bays have certainly also ensured that Hvar is consistently voted as a top destination.
The green island also stands out for its magnificent natural beauty. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. At the same time though Hvar town, one of the liveliest and most exclusive towns in Croatia is well established as a hub for vibrant nightlife, chic boutiques and stunning Venetian architecture. It is also home of the oldest theatre in Europe.
Tranquil Sucuraj a picturesque small fishing town of 400 residents on the east cape of Hvar, is one of the sunniest and hottest places on the island, with more than 2700 hours of sunshine per year! The town exudes an authentic local charm and is steeped in a rich history – it was settled by the Ilyrinas, Romans, Slavs, Venetians and French. Sucuraj is even mentioned in Homer’s famous epic “Iliad” – the poet refers to the town as “Kila”.
The town centre with its attractive marina is also only a 5 minute walk away from Villa Palma, and provides you with a choice of three small supermarkets, post office, newsagent, doctor’s surgery, local shops, several bars and family run Konoba restaurants offering local produce and wine.

"A real gem with balcony overlooking Adriatic"
Stayed in the penthouse 4 days at Easter. Highly recommend this place - it is as the pictures show - a beautiful location, stunning views, modern, bright apartment with well supplied kitchen and lovely quiet garden for outdoor eating which unfortunately Easter weather did not allow us to experience. Booking and deposit arrangements were easily made by email. This was my 3rd time staying in Sucuraj. It is at the eastern most tip of Hvar island almost touching the mainland. Many tourists visit Hvar old town and Stari Grad - a formidable 1.30 drive over mountains to the western end of the island but we chose Sucuraj because it has a quiet, close knit village feel yet is just a relaxing 30 min ferry ride across from the busy Dalmatian coastline between Split and Dubrovnik. The little harbour is beautiful and though it's not an overly commercialised village there are a couple of restaurants, shops, a pub and a pretty and historic church. Although the drive to the apartment takes a few minutes round the north side of the village, there is a pedestrian path to the harbour that takes just two or three minutes. Vlado, the owner's father/father in law is a very kind and friendly gentleman and an excellent host. He speaks a little english and we enjoyed home made merlot wine and honey produced by other relatives. We had brought basic food essentials with us but actually the fridge was stocked with bread, eggs, milk, butter, walnuts and figs and unexpectedly a gift of delicious home made cake arrived on Easter Sunday! Drvenik (where you get the ferry from the mainland) is approx 1:30 to 2:00 hour drive from Dubrovnik with several ferries a day from 6.30 am. Cost approx €20 for car and 4 adults. We will definitely return here in the summer when we can enjoy the balcony and garden more!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Palma despite the bad weather and we look forward to welcoming you in the future! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback and useful information for future potential guests. With warm wishes from us all in Sucuraj.

"So good I booked for next year while staying here (never done that before!)...."
This is an absolutely exceptional holiday rental in a very beautiful place. It's the combination of a stunning apartment and a magical location that makes it so special, and then you have the fantastically generous, kind host family who are just brilliant.
The apartment is immaculately clean, really stylish, spacious and really well-equipped with thoughtful touches that make it feel like home. We arrived to find milk, juice, beer, wine, butter, jam, honey, bread, tea, coffee, sugar, oil, vinegar, and fruit - some of which was from Villa Palma, and all of which was really appreciated/scoffed! - having been met by Vlado at the harbour so we could follow him to the house. There were two of us, so we had a bedroom each and the beds/pillows were great. The views from the house (and esp. the penthouse apartment) are mesmerisingly beautiful - you could spend most of your holiday gazing out at them! We loved star-gazing from the balcony at night, having breakfast there every morning, and chilling out after busy days finding idyllic beaches with a glass of wine as the sun set.
The area: this is the gorgeously sleepy, quiet, less well-known end of Hvar island and the very best place to stay locally. You are 3 mins v scenic walk to the village (3 supermarkets, several cafes, 7 or 8 good restaurants) and about 90 seconds from the nearest swimming spot in the amazingly clear sea. You can drive to Stari grad and Hvar town in about an hour, and we did that one day, but the pleasure here is exploring what feels like a secret place on a well-known island. We went to a different beach every day (max 30 mins drive) and in September had several to ourselves - we got quite cross one day to be sharing with 6 people! Other than that, we settled into village life, having coffees and ice-creams in the cafes and eating out in some really good restaurants - great seafood, and some excellent pizza, plus fab Croatian wine. If you like a quiet base, characterful places to stay, and tourist-free (ish) locations, I can't recommend Sucuraj highly enough. It's the ultimate chill-out place.
We had all this, for 10 days, but also the generosity of Tomos and Francesca, Vlado and Palmina. They couldn't do enough for us, while we were booking (really helpful tips about the rest of our trip in Croatia) and once we arrived: they helped with our boat hire (we had Tomos' cousin taking us out on an amazing boat trip for a day - a real highlight of the holiday), made dinner for us that night (thanks, Vlado!) and barbequed incredible local fish for us for a beautiful lunch with the family- again, one of our highlights in a holiday full of them.
I can't recommend Villa Palma highly enough. We had a great time - so much so that I've already rebooked for next year (waited until I'd done that before posting this review - didn't want anyone getting my dates!). It's a very special place.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We really appreciate it. Looking forward to seeing you soon… Not long now!

"Second time around even better"
Last year we stayed in 1st Floor Apartment at Villa Palma and enjoyed it so much we came back this year again for two weeks, but this time we stayed in the Penthouse Apartment. The apartment was very clean, very well equipped and offered fantasic views. The hospitality from the hosts was just fantastic.
Having seen a lot of the island during our first visit, we were very content in just spending relaxing days at the nearby beach and then going to the village in the evening for a lovely meal. The hosts even treated us to a barbeque which was great. It was also a great opportunity to taste some of their own wine and other self made products.
The children really loved the holiday, particularly the beach - swimming, exploring the rock pools, eating watermelon, etc, and the Penthouse Apartment offers a great living area for the whole family or even couples to relax in the evening.
I thoroughly recommend the Villa Palma Apartments.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review this property. Very much appreciated! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we are really looking forward to welcoming you back this year again.

"Fantastic accommodation in a stunning location"
We found everything about Villa Palma to be excellent. The location, amenities, friendly welcome and standard of accommodation. The Villa is very well equipped and has everything you need for your stay. The furnishings and cleanliness is of a high standard. We were welcomed at the ferry port by Vlado who went out of his way to be hospitable to us. We hired a boat from friends of the owner which made our exploration of the island a lovely adventure. Sucuraj is stunning and unspoilt. The restaurants in the harbour - just a few minutes walk from the accommodation - serve excellent food with friendly service and the local people are very welcoming. We will definitely return to Villa Palma.
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback on the property and location. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we really hope to welcome you again soon to Villa Palma!

"Wonderful apartment, great location"
I can not recommend the apartment enough, and thoroughly agree with all the positive comments on this site. We had no problems arranging our stay with Francesca who helped us plan our trip, and we had a lovely time with our host Vlado who was very generous. Everything you need to cook was provided, inc. oil and condiments. Sucaraj was quiet during our visit as we arrived a few weeks before the season began, so we had the beaches to ourselves and a lovely welcome from the locals. A great place to relax on our honeymoon. We plan to return to Croatia and will definitely be going back to Villa Palma.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Villa Palma and hope to welcome you all in the future! Greetings from Sucuraj, from all the Croatian family

"The perfect spot"
The apartment is as clean as a whistle, when we first entered, we got the impression we were the first guests there – it was only the guestbook that proved otherwise. The apartment is furnished in a modern, very tasteful manner and offers absolutely everything you might need during your stay, whether it's for a weekend or for a month. You can sense everything in the apartment was carefully planned. If there is one thing that stands out in particular though, it has to be the terrace view. Located on the peak of a hill, Villa Palma Apartment offers a unique view overlooking Sucuraj and the Adriatic coast, which is a true highlight.
The surrounding is extremely peaceful and quiet, it's the perfect spot to run away from the hustle and bustle of city life. At the same time it's very conveniently close to the Sucuraj marina with its restaurants and only a minute walk from the sea. The water is crystal clear, the air is clean and refreshing and you can admire the beauty of nature around you. During our stay we have visited Dubrovnik, Split and took a tour of the island and found Villa Palma a great starting point for those trips.
Villa Palma is not merely an apartment though, the place has a soul. The lovely hosts made sure we felt welcome and had everything we needed. We also spent a charming evening together, enjoying typical cuisine and wine and sharing travel experiences. These warm-hearted and friendly people are the reason why the memories of our stay are not ones of renting an apartment, but rather visiting our friends.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Villa Palma and hope to welcome you all in the future! Greetings from Sucuraj, from all the Croatian family

"A home from home, and more"
We were delighted by the penthouse apartment - spacious, light, well-equipped, very comfortable and blessed with gorgeous panoramic views. Fast Internet with wifi and a big satellite TV were very popular with our two teenage boys (16 and 13). The air conditioning was essential in July/August.
All the amenities of Sucuraj are an easy walk away - food shops (3), restaurants (7), a cafe bar and the long, long beach of Bilina. It's actually a long shore of sloping rocks dotted with marine pines - plenty of places for wading or diving in, soaking up the rays or cooling in the shade. The water is very clean, clear and warm - certainly in July/August.
These are all memorable but our fondest memories are of the owner of the property, Vlado. His warmth and hospitality gave the whole stay an added dimension - we loved our conversations with him. He's special.
We would heartily recommend this property to anybody seeking a quiet relaxed holiday in a beautiful setting. Bearing in mind that Sucuraj is a small port town at the other end of Hvar Island from the main resorts (e.g. Stari Grad), it's an ideal spot for anybody who wants to get away from the tourist crowds.
Thank you very much for the wonderful review you submitted for Villa Palma apartments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you in the future!
With best wishes,
Francesca and the Croatian family!

"Superb - loved it!"
We were the first people to stay in the penthouse and it was fantastic. We travelled around Croatia for two weeks and stayed here for four nights and it was the favourite part of our holiday. The apartment is of an extremely high standard in an idyllic location overlooking olive groves, lemon trees, fig trees, the sea and mountains. Vlado who is on site was a brilliant host and kindly provided us with wine, beer, milk, eggs etc in the fridge and arranged for us to take a speedboat out for the day on the same day, which was an excellent way to find secret bays and explore the coastline. A great bonus is that at the end of the drive you can go straight on to a rocky beach and in to the Adriatic. Sucuraj is a lovely, unspoilt harbour town with plenty of nice restaurants. We miss the apartment and can't recommend it highly enough!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments and thrilled that we also mananaged to supply you with your favourite book! Hope to welcome you again in the future.
Best wishes to you both from Francesca and the Croatian family
