Pin & Pin received a European Property Award for Best single unit Croatia, 5 stars sponsored by Virgin Atlantic and Yamaha. Pin& Pin competed against a number of developers in Croatia to receive this recognition. Europe’s finest developers gathered at the glamorous Grosvenor House Hotel in London to attend a glittering gala and to hear the long-anticipated results of the International Property Awards regional competition.

Villa Lypa was constructed in 2012. A luxury 5-star villa situated just steps from the Adriatic sea on the Island of Brac. The villa consists of 4 en suite bedrooms, indoor and outdoor living areas, a luxury gym/spa, infinity pool, and mooring for a boat.

“We were delighted to win the award and we hope to continue our success into the following years.”, said Adam Pinion, MD of Pin & Pin.

Awards were given out for Europe’s most impressive developments for a variety of property types, including retail, office, retirement, public service, high-rise, mixed-use, leisure, apartment, and single unit. Lord Bates, Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords in British Parliament, presented the winning companies with special plaques during the awards ceremony. Each company was announced as either a ‘Highly Commended’ or ‘5-Star’ winner.

The 5-star winners were placed under further examination and just one from each category was named a regional European winner. The regional winners, which were announced at the close of the awards gala, will go on to compete in the International Final ‘World’s Best’ Property Awards hosted in London this coming December.  They will compete against other regional winners from Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, UK, and the Americas to find the ultimate World’s Best in each category.
