    “All necessary shops, pharmacy, vet, countless restaurants and beautiful swimming holes are within a 10-minute walk. The paths lead either to the well-developed promenade or through the parallel pine forest along (ideal for dog owners). To all bathing areas bordering a pine forest where your beloved four-legged friend while bathing can be executed. The apartment is very centrally located, yet in a very quiet and cozy corner.
    It is almost impossible.”

    “The place Stari Grad is very beautiful. On the beach there were unfortunately no rent deckchairs. Schade was also that the present dressing rooms were very dirty and run down. However, great advantage is the ramp for the disabled or elderly people who can swim without problems here.”

habitant is general Demetrius, a short-term governor of the Illyrian state and an associate of powerful Hannibal from Kartaga.
After Demetrius’ failure in 219 B.C., the town became dependent on Rome and remained so until late antiquity.
There are numerous monuments that are evidence of the town’s turbulent history which can be seen in numerous points during a walk through the old city centre as well as in the museums. Medieval history starts with the arrival of the Slavs – Croats during the 6th and 7th centuries with the town inheriting an ancient tradition.

town") is historical heart of the island of Hvar. The town is situated in a landscape where the blue of the deep bay touches the green of the wide an famous field of Pharos, with vineyards and olive-groves. The fields used to provide sustenance and the bay provided protection.
Today, both the fields and the bay add an attractive quality to the island, in which the modern vacation sights have become intertwined with the antiquities of the town and of the island.
Because of its position in the middle of the Hvar island, for centuries Stari Grad was a safe harbour to sailors, which have been welcomed by town inhabitants on harbour promenade. Stari Grad bay is still regulary visited by most of the travellers on boats passing trough middle Dalmatia.
The town is surrounded with pine tree forest and cooled with summer breeze (maestral). In the hot summer days it is one of the rare Dalmatian places where the air is fresh and the sleep refreshing. A thousand years long history of the Town has left many monuments in the urban structure of the Town.
A walk through the Stari Grad center, narrow streets and small squares brings the whisperings of the past times.

Discover the beautiful Dalmatia

Dalmatia | The picturesque landscape of Dalmatia stretches from the island Rab in the northwest to the border with Montenegro in the southeast. Typical features of the coast in this traditional region are the fjord like bays as well as the islands off the coast. Cultural and touristic centres are the towns of Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Sibenik. In the small fishing villages and idyllic heartland you will find peace and seclusion. Beautiful sandy beaches are a special feature of the islands Rab and Pag. The other islands also are worth spending a vacation on. When on Pag don’t miss out on tasting the local delicassy feta cheese.
Worth a visit is Dalmatia's biggest city Split. Why do you not start at the Diokletian's Palace and take a stroll through the old town centre as well as along the promenade. Alternatively you could walk up to Marjan Hill where you have a wonderful view over the area. Should you want to take in some of the cultural treasures then we would recommend you to visit one of the larger museums of the town.
The Makarska Riviera provides you with some of the most charming beaches where you can relax and recharge those empty batteries. With the phenomenal setting of the Biokovo Mountains as a background make this location one of the unique parts of coastal strip to be found in Dalmatia.
In the south part of Dalmatia you will find the Konavle Valley also known as the “Garden of Dubrovnik”. A variety of vegetables as well as figs, olives and cypresses grow in these ideal surroundings. Equally important are the vineyards of this region that are spread out in this spacious valley. This diverse and fertile countryside invites you to go on extensive walks whilst enjoying the tranquillity that the area offers. Should you want to take in some of the local sights and sounds then you should visit the town of Cilipi where every Sunday folklore events take place.
