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.

Perfect home for perfect holiday

5 of 5
We have had a month in Croatia and stayed 1 week in Jelsa, this was by far our favourite accomodation.Everything has been thought of, all the local info about the area, its great to have all the condiments for cooking, as well as the nightlights when your in unfamiliar surroundings. Our kids had been backpacking for weeks so enjoyed having some space downstairs to call their own. We would stroll down to get our morning pastries and then spent a lot of time on the balcony soaking up the surroundings and enjoying the clear skies and warm weather. We loved getting our fresh vegetables and figs from a small doorway just down the road, the fresh figs yum. We did the coastal walk to Vrboska (it is 5km) with lots of beautiful areas to stop and swim along the way. This is a beautiful village that has an amazing Wine Festival the last weekend of August, which we were lucky enough to arrive in the midst of, Saturday evening.The street food was incredible, water polo games, music and finished with an amazing fire works display. We would definitely recommend staying here to our friends and hope we can return one day.
