From staying in a tree house to having a lighthouse all for yourself, there are plenty of unique accommodation options in Croatia.

Another one of those is this old converted tower mill on the island of Hvar. The ruined tower, which dates back over 250 years, has been restored and turned into a place is available to rent through Airbnb.

In 1761, a group of Franciscans built a windmill on a hill overlooking the port on the island of Hvar in the Adriatic Sea. The passage of time took a toll on the structure through, and a couple hundred years later the local residents were calling it the Ruina di Molino a Vento. The ruins passed to new owners who restored the tower’s stone base and converted the interior into a small home.

“The tower’s living space is spread over five floors. Rooms are defined by changes in level rather than by walls. The entry door opens to the kitchen, with the dining area a few steps lower,” is how the property, which is located just a few minutes walk from the main square in Hvar, is described.

“A wood staircase curves up to a mezzanine level, used as a bedroom, before continuing up to the living room.”
