Dubrovnik's Riviera is one of the most beautiful and romantic places you can imagine. It starts at the Neretva River and continues to the border between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The hidden coves, idyllic sandy beaches and lush vegetation characterize the area. Of course the area is also home to one of the world's most beautiful cities - Dubrovnik. In the sea beyond the Riviera there are countless beautiful islands with small picturesque towns and a truly magical atmosphere, including Mlet and Korcula. The cypresses sway slowly in the wind and the smell of pine trees and flowers hangs in the air. On the steep mountain slopes of the riviera are vineyards and olive groves side by side. The many agaves, citrus and orange trees emphasize the Mediterranean atmosphere, and the crystal clear
waters and idyllic beaches invite you to spend lazy days in the sun.

Discoveries in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is often referred to as the Pearl of the Adriatic! Surrounded by azure sea, this stunningly beautiful city with its distinctive red terracotta roofs and a Croatian history can take the breath away from everyone. The old town is surrounded by a tall medieval wall, where you can stroll on top around the city. Do not miss this experience, the views of the city and the sea are breathtaking and the "Game of Thrones" fans will have a nice look, as many of the recordings are made here. On the 2 kilometer long trip, you can also take a small break and enjoy a cold drink from one of the many small stalls - at the same time you can enjoy the sun and the beautiful view.
Excursions and shopping
Are you a "Game of Thrones" fan, or do you just love beautiful scenery and memorable experiences? Either way, we would suggest a visit to the small island of Lokrum, located just outside Dubrovnik. The island was used as a setting for filming for the cult series, and you will be able to recognize the old cathedral from one of the scenes. In the summer you can rent a kayak and sail around the island where you will pass dramatic caves and fine snorkelling spots. There are numerous boat trips from Dubrovnik to the islands beyond the Riviera to enjoy during your stay in our self-catering holiday homes in Croatia. For example, you can go to the wonderful island of Korcula, which was the birthplace of Marco Polo or the Mljet Natural Park, where you can discover the Odyssey Grotto. You can also choose one of the slightly lesser known islands such as Neretva Delta, Trsteno, Ston and Cilipi.
In the beautiful hinterland there are breathtaking mountains, mountain lakes, vineyards and olive groves and everywhere you can wander and enjoy the amazing scenery. As well as restaurants where you can sample some delicious Croatian cuisine and freshly and tasty seafood, you will also find charming artisan shops selling souvenirs such as ceramics for you to take home with you.
Food and drink for the holidays at the Dubrovnik Riviera
You can find anything from fast food shops to gourmet restaurants for a luxurious and special meal out. We think that you will find that generally you will get quite a lot for your money. In many of the local restaurants away from the main streets you will eat very well for a good price. Head to one of the 'Konobas' in the mountains for an authentic dining experience. During your stay in on holiday rentals in Dalmatia you will also be able to taste the excellent wines from the Peljesac peninsula and the island of Korčula.
You may get the very best meals when you shop in the local market, where fruits and vegetables are double size compared to what you buy at home. Prepare your meals from delicious local produce and enjoy your meals in the open air of the private terrace of your chosen Croatian holiday lettings while the sun sets.
