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.

The apartment itself was very spacious with a large balcony. The walk to the main square was no more than ten minutes and two beaches located within five minutes. Everything was within walking distance including a local shop two minutes away. The owners were very helpful with the booking, providing details about Hvar and things to do during the day. On arrival we were met by the property manager who were helpful throughout our time there. They sorted out a boat trip for us round Pakleni Island's which I would recommend doing. Overall a great place to stay and somewhere I would defiantly stay again.
