Hvar, a fairy tale island, is a unique fusion of luxury, history, culture, scenery, lavender, fun, food and atmosphere. Facing south onto the sea just gives it that touch of perfection, with the added bonus of having an entirely traffic free centre, only frequented by silent electric delivery carts, local ferries and luxury yachts.
Once an important port within the Venetian naval empire, today it is a town of smiling and courteous locals who just love to have fun and make visitors welcome.
After an exhausting day of sun-bathing and swimming in the crystal clear sea, wander and admire the stunning architecture, climb the steep hill to the impressive 16th century fortress above the old city, explore the passageways and stairways or just sit and watch the world go by with a coffee in the beautiful old square overlooking the harbour.
Good food is an unavoidable part of Hvar’s tradition. Fresh fish, home-made olive oil, a pinch of local herbs and a glass of good wine – all served in the atmospheric restaurants throughout the town. The people of Hvar live long and happy lives.
End the day at the ancient theatre or a lively disco.
For the romantics try a walk along the beautifully lit promenades, through the trees by the sea and look out to the twinkling lights of the stars and the ships anchored out in the bay.
This is as near to heaven as you can get.
