The beautiful town of Vrboska is a gem,away from the hustle and bustle of more touristy places.With its little stone bridges,a selection of small shops,friendly harbour side restaurants and cafes,historical fortress and the locals going about their every day lives, this small town has certainly kept it character. There is plenty to do here.lovely coastal walks to Jelsa. Bike and boat hire,boat taxis’s,the beach.and many scene to paint and photograph or just people watch from the harbour side cafe. Going the last week in September was a perfect temperature with the weather being nice and warm and sunny.Our plan was flawed by not planning a longer stay,we can’t wait to return.

The house is every bit as attractive in real life as the photographs on the website portray.You are spoilt for choice in where to sit out and relax whether it be the pretty garden or the comfortable roof terrace with great sea view.The house is in a great location , very handy for the town. Rupert our host was wonderful with his recommendations and was always available when we needed help or assistance throughout our stay. We found the locals ,restaurant and cafe staff all very friendly, especially the family friendly Alviz restaurant at the top of the square.
