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.
