This former summer residence is a reminder of times past and a building of great cultural and historical importance. Villa Agave will enchant you with its elegant interior design. The old chapel shows wonderful ornamental details from a distant past and rustic stone walls. Mediterranean and modernist elements were skillfully incorporated into its overall design. It is the perfect place for rest and meditation. The original house was destroyed in WWII but later renovated by famous Croatian painter Milovan Stanić. He also painted the fresco that still adorns the villa’s living room wall. Other walls are decorated with precious art of Croatian and international artists from the Štrok family’s private art collection. Book it now.
Forming part of the Portsmouth’s Solent Strait, Spitbank Fort is perhaps the only private island in Great Britain to be protected by walls six meters thick. Completed in 1878, Spitbank – along with two other forts – was intended to protect the heart of the British Empire from invading troops. The threat of invasion never materialized, with the forts standing empty for years to come. Recently converted to a luxury hotel, Spitbank Fort has since been restored to its former glory, providing guests with a private island experience they’ll never forget. Book it now.
