We rode our bikes from Stari Grad all the way to Jelsa through the Stari Grad Plain. There are numerous markers along the way that explain a bit about the history and location which are well worth the read. There are countless fig trees (we...More
We journeyed across the backbone of Hvar Island to this small port city adjacent to a large, very fertile plain. I say this because most of Croatia is made up of limestone rock! Although lavender season is over, on these rocky hills is where they...More
This plain, which has been farmed for centuries, was a peaceful, beautiful ride. In addition to passing various crops here, you can ride toward the hills to be surrounded by lavendra. A great way to spend a day!
I hired a bike in Stari Grad (100 krona for a half day) then rode across to Dubovica beach on the other side of the island (about 10km). Some steep inclines of 10 degrees then through a tunnel. The cars were cautious to give me...More
Riding along the road through Stari Grad Plain was a treat. The usual grape vines and olive trees of course but to know that the fields were initially set up over a thousand years ago by the Greeks gives a special sense of history. Dropping...More
We drove through this area and enjoyed seeing the stone walls that have separated the land into plots. These plots have been used for over 2,400 years! The plots contain grapes, lavender and olive trees.
Average rating due to it being a UNESCO site. Like most things in Croatia, it is poorly maintained and a lost potential to being a really great tourist attraction. Regardless, being someplace that was surveyed, laid out and has been farmed the same for 2400...More
Hi, it took us 15/20 minutes to cycle to V and maybe 10 to cycle to Jelsa. We came back by a different route which was well worth doing. It was hot so bring plenty of water. It's a fairly easy cycle to do.

Indomnot know the address but it is located near the center of the plain toward the hill side. I saw several signs for it while we were exploring the plain and it is quite obvious when you pass it as it is the only new construction in the entire area. There is a large raised covered terrace area they must use for the tasting area.
Looked quite nice, but we didn't stop in. Have fun,
