Things to do on holiday to Hvar, Croatia

There is a huge amount to see and do from an apartment in Hvar. The coastline is stunning. The pebble beaches that surround the island mainly consist of small, crescent shaped bays, surrounded by thick pine woodland, which shelter visitors from the frequent winds that make Hvar a kite surfing haven.

Places to visit on holiday to Hvar, Croatia

Hvar Town paintings cannot do the town justice. The ancient town is stunning, located on a sheltered harbour. The ancient monuments which make up the town appear at every turn, and although St Stephens Cathedral, the Theatre of Hvar and Groda Palace are the best known attractions in Hvar town, it is almost impossible to set any monuments apart from the rest of the town, such is the ancient beauty. There is plenty of walking from Hvar town, both into the unspoilt woodland and along the coved coastline that surround the town, and by night, the bars and restaurants of Hvar attract people from across the island.

Other Dalmation Islands are within range of a fantastic day trip from a Hvar villa too. Boats can be arranged heading for the islands of Brac, Ciovo and Korcula among others.

                                                          Very relaxing vacation spot and a short, but steep walk down to beach and restaurants. Only complaint is that basic supplies for cooking and cleaning were not initially provided. But when asked, the owner was very generous in providing what we needed.

                                                          Attention, c'est un véritable bijou !

                                                          Attention, c'est un véritable bijou méditerranéen ! Depuis 6 ans déjà, pour ma famille c'est la destination estivale incontournable et nous ne sommes pas prêts de la changer. Vous êtes ici dans un rêve avec un cadre si époustouflant que vous vous sentirez très vite les rois du monde. Pour ceux qui aiment la tranquillité, le ciel toujours si bleu le jour et si étoilé la nuit, le paysage divin des oliviers et des vignes, le chant des cigales, le bruit des petits vagues,...,c'est l'endroit rêvé. Vous serez accueillis par Katarina et Ozren et leur fils Tin , une famille formidable, devenue depuis des amis très proches et que nous ne pourrons jamais suffisamment remercier pour des moments si inoubliables vécus dans ce paradis terrestre. Petit conseil,...il y a que 6 appartements dans cette maison blanche. Pour accéder au rêve il faut s'y prendre très tôt, des mois en avance... Et si vous pouvez allez-y dès le démarrage de la saison d'été, fin mai -début juin... Merci infiniment !

                                                          Quaint rooms in a small village

                                                          Hvar Island is a great place to sample the slow pace of Mediterranean life. The apartment is based just above Jelsa Port, an easy 30 minute walk but be cautious of traffic. The house is newly renovated and quite cozy. Andy and Susan, your hosts, are very helpful with recommendations regarding the island. There is one local restaurant in the village that must be tried, too.
