The area and getting around
The most southerly of Croatian resorts, Cavtat is located on the Dalmatian coast, which is renowned as the cleanest in Europe, and in fact the most beautiful shoreline to be found anywhere in the continent. The town slopes steeply down to the sea front where you arrive at the old town with its creamy stone houses set against the pure blue backdrop of the sparkling Adriatic.Cavtat’s bigger brother

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the writer George Bernard Shaw said “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”. The walled old town of Dubrovnik set against the shimmering Adriatic and spectacular mountains is considered by many as the most beautiful place in Europe. Enjoy a day in the bustle of the town then return to your relaxing holiday rental in the tranquil Cavtat.
