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.

With the busy season over, the island felt relaxed and content and the temperature was a very comfortable 22 - 25C throughout our stay. The accommodation is lovely, with much thought gone into convenience and comfort for us guests. The cottages are just as described, with even basic supplies provided for you in a 'welcome pack' upon arrival - something I have never experienced while on a self-catering holiday on the continent before! The welcome pack included. among other useful items, fresh bread, milk and a selection of homemade jams (made by Chris herself I believe) and such, that took care of our breakfasts for our entire stay. Although we did splash-out once for breakfast, which Chris and Mick (the owners) cooked for us at an extra cost and were glad we did. A full English far from home is always a rare treat, especially when it's done properly (there was even black pudding while we were there). But by and far the most useful service that they provide is their 'taxi service'. Mick knows the island like the back of his hand and will take you anywhere you wish to go for a very reasonable price. They can also collect you from the ferry port(s) upon arrival, so if like me and my partner you do not drive, or have not brought a car along, you won't miss out on anything. Mick even came to collect us from Hvar Town at 3am one night, and tolerated our drunken ramblings all the way back to Vrbanj. An excellent holiday and excellent place to stay. Highly recommended, I will be staying there again.

The view is incredible, and you can sit on the terrace sipping the village's wine while looking at the grapes it came from, with the Adriatic in the distance. A short 5 minute drive to Jelsa, where you can find everything you need (food, wi-fi, etc). Perfect.

The kitchen is better equipped than my own and there are many useful items like a shopping cart, umbrella, and beach basket, along with good quality linens and comfortable furnishings. All this adds to the makings of an easy holiday. It's impossible to fully convey the affect the spectacular view has on your sense of well-being. We spent many long, satisfying mornings on the balcony gazing at the islands and watching the ships go by. There is easy access to the seawall path and a very chill beach bar just below. We enjoyed this quieter, lower key part of town. It's an easy walk into the old town which has many lovely restaurants and beautiful historic buildings. AnnMarie was most helpful in her recommendations. A trip to the Pakleni Islands is a must. While some reviewers enjoyed the music from Hula Hula bar, we found it too loud and intrusive in such a peaceful setting. We chose to spend mornings on the balcony but went out for dinner and sunset time to avoid the volume. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to make a return visit to this special apartment. Highly recommended!
