Villa Nonna dates from the 17th century, and it was completely reconstructed in 2003.
Villa Nonna is a stone house in the historical centre of Komiža, it was built with the stone of the best quality from the island of Brac. Villa is situated in the longest kala (old Mediteranean street) of Komiža – Ribarska ulica (Fishermens street), which extends from central square to hotel’s beach. Villa Nonna is located only 10 meters from the sea, and 3 minutes by walking from the beach of Hotel Biševo.
Some twenty years ago, the Tavern ‘Nona’, used to be at the spot where the ground floor of Villa Nonna is today and it was one of the first such taverns in Komiža, an open type with a grill upon which guests could cook their own fish. For the people of Komiža, this tavern was a synonym for this house, and hence its current name “VILLA NONNA”.
The reconstruction of Villa Nonna included everything except the stone walls, which were returned to their former glory. All of the floors underwent complete adaptations, as the house is now an apartment complex with seven studio apartments. The use of traditional materials – wood, stone and wrought iron – has returned a feeling of authenticity to the house.
Though Villa Nonna gives the spirit of times past, it is modernly equipped. All apartments are air-conditioned, equipped with a safe and electronic door locks, high quality mattresses and satellite television. The bathrooms are modernly equipped and include a hair dryer. The house also has its own water reservoir and a solar system for water heating .Villa Nonna is capable to heat water to satisfy all the capacity of Villa Nonna for the whole day.
Each apartment of Villa Nonna is named after one Dalmatian plant. Apartment Salvia (Kade) is situated in the ground floor, there is a small yard of 10 m2 and it’s equiped by wooden table and chairs. Both Apartments Olea (Olive) and Rozmarinus (Rosemary) have a small balcony. The rest of the apartments are: Laurus (Laurel), Mentha (Mint), Citrus (Lemon) and Lavandula (Lavender). All the apartments are suitable for2-3 persons except apartment Rozmarinus which can fit a family with two kids.
