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.

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.

Although we were unlucky with the weather in Hvar (end of April - was always going to be a risk!) we had a brilliant time. Our catamaran from Split to Hvar was cancelled due to rough seas, so we took the ferry to Stari Grad - where Rupert very kindly met us, which he really didn't need to do. The house is in the perfect location - right by the beach, & only a 5 min walk into Hvar & is kitted out with everything you could possibly want - we made the most of the kitchen & BBQ area & found everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable & the shower was nice & powerful. Rupert was a great host & was very accommodating to everything we needed. I hope we will return to Hvar & will definitely look to rent out this property again - next time, we will fill the other room with friends & hope for better weather so that we can use the sunloungers & the terraces!
