|House and garden
Hvar Town has the most beautiful town square from the Venetian
era outside of Dubrovnik. It plays the role of sitting room for the
town with Cathedral at one end and Venetian theatre over the Boat
House at the other. Set within the 13th century walls, the stone house
has beautiful views of the port and enjoys a garden with shady vines,
bougainvilliaea, pomegranate and an orange tree, to sunbathe an relax
in. The town attracts the glitterati from all over the world who
arrive in spectacular yachts for the stunning architecture, fresh
seafood restaurants within Venetian palaces and the highest number of
sunshine hours as well as the cleanest sea in the Adriatic. The town
centre is a car free zone making it a safe playground for children who
can explore the winding cobbled streets, shops, Venetian Palaces and
the busy harbour. Inland the mountains rise to 2000ft with hilltowns
set among the vineyards and olive groves, the scent of lavender greets
the seaborne visitor.
