Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Hvar, Croatia your home away from home

Hvar is the ultimate Dalmatian Island. Blanketed by thick, Mediterranean vegetation and blessed with a wonderfully mild climate, Hvar villas have been among the most popular holiday destinations with discerning travellers for centuries. Considered among the 10 most beautiful islands in the world, Hvar remains beautifully natural, attracting painters, nature lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts in droves every year, who flock to apartments in Hvar, Croatia to enjoy the close links between man and nature and the charmingly traditional way of life which is still enjoyed on the island.

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. If you are looking for a soft sand beach from your holiday rental apartment in Hvar, there are a couple of natural, sandy beaches along the north coast, especially around Jelsa. There are plenty of opportunities to sail and kite surf in Hvar, with reliable winds caressing the north shores of the island. There are also some excellent scuba diving centres located in Hvar and Jelsa, with dive sites ideal for both experts and interested learners.

One of the most enjoyable ways to explore from Hvar villas is to take the slow route through the island, travelling under your own steam. Cycling through Hvar is a hugely popular way to explore, taking in the sights and smells, especially the rich fragrance of lavender which covers the island. There are a huge range of cycle paths throughout the meadows, country roads and forest tracks of Hvar, details of which are readily available from the Hvar Tourist Information offices.

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.

Fantastic villa in a most amazing setting- view you never want to leave

5 of 5
Can't recommend this villa enough- great base to explore island- but only if you can drag yourself away from the garden and sea view

Amazing house in fabulous location with great views

5 of 5
Wow. This house is utterly fabulous and by far the best place we stayed on our tour of Venice and Croatia . The house is really , really spacious and comfortable . The best bit is the lovely balcony with great views . We also loved Stari Grad and enjoyed the recommended restaurants . Thank you.
