Hvar

After a couple of days on the beautiful island of Mijet, we boarded another ferry and were Hvar bound. Hvar sounded much livelier than Mijet – and also looked really beautiful from the pictures. Pulling into the harbour, we were not disappointed – Hvar was practically bustling with activity and had almost a cosmopolitan feel about it. We’d booked a room at Luka’s Lodge – on the basis that Luka sounded like an absolute legend – and we were not disappointed. The welcome was warm, with lots of advice about what to do in the area. Luka suggested we walk up to the castle for the view. We replied that we really could not face any more steps – Croatia is the hilliest place on the planet… to which Luka replied that he would take us in his car to the top. And so he did. What an absolute diamond!

During our stay, we caught the bus to Stari Grad, which was a really pretty little village. From there we hired bikes and cycled across beautiful vineyards to Jelsa; a round trip of about 15 miles broken up with a dip in the sea, followed by a gorgeous meal back in Stari Grad then the last bus back. All in all, a fabulous day out.
