Croatia holiday resorts – Visit Sobra
The village of Sobra is the island’s main port. You will visit Sobra if you reach the island via ferry, and it is also the departing point for excursions to the stunning town of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is brimming with culture, fantastic restaurants and is also home to our wide range of Dubrovnik accommodation. Although Sobra is situated outside of the Mljet National Park, it still has plenty to offer. It is bursting with picturesque beaches, nice restaurants, as well as an interesting harbour and old houses. The economy depends upon fishing and agriculture, as well as tourism. In fact, many of the locals rent their homes as holiday lettings to visitors wishing to soak up the atmosphere and live like a local.
Cheap holidays to Croatia – culture and landscape in Babino Polje
Six kilometres west of Sobra is the town of Babino Polje, the largest city in Mljet and the island’s administrative centre. Those in search of culture during a stay in our villas in Croatia should head to Rector’s Palace, which dates by to the 15th Century and was built for the Duke of the Dubrovnik Republic who lived on the island. In addition, the town is home to plenty of cultural and historical sites, including churches from the 10th Century. It is no surprise, therefore, that the town is the oldest settlement on the island. Visitors in our dog friendly cottages may wish to visit the town as its location at the bottom of the 541 metre high Mali Grad and Veliki Grad hills ensures it’s fantastic for fans of the great outdoors. The town sits above a fertile valley, bursting with vineyards and olive-groves, and provides plenty of open landscape for you, and your pet, to explore.
