My husband and I are travelling to Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia for 3 weeks. We will be flying from London to Slovenia, renting a car and heading off. We are in the early stages of an itinerary and I will be posting for advice:)
As part of this 3 week trip, we will be meeting another Canadian couple for 5 days. We would like to rent a villa off the coast nearish Dubrovnik for these days. We are in our 40's and have travelled together before renting places in Maui and France (near La Grange a very small village by Vence) and had a blast. We like places that have local character. We will have a car but also would want to be walking distance to at least a few restaurants, bars and activities. We like the beach for a day or two (though a nice beach is very important to the other couple), also sightseeing, great wine, restaurants and hiking. We would also want to do perhaps day trips to other islands. Also, the other couple would need to head back to London from Dubrovnik so we would need easy access to there. We are travelling May 28th-June 3rd, 2016. So based on my research to date, we are down to Hvar, Korcula, or Brac. Any suggestions and where on these islands I should start looking? I started with someway and VRBO and got overwhelmed. Oh and I should mention we would like a place with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms and a pool. Local colourful and fun- no chain hotels or anything!
Appreciate your help.
