A lovely fortnight in Cavtat,staying at Villa Stanovic,endless sunshine in a very pretty resort.
We did a little research into our accomodation and were very pleased with our choice,requesting room R02 in particular,solely due to the large corner balcony and the simply breathtaking views it offers.Spectacular uninterrupted sunsets and a picture of the peninsula and Adriatic which looks almost painted.
Our room itself was as expected,simple,clean and adequate,large double bed,some storage,and a bathroom with a good, hot ,powerful shower.We never really had any interaction with our hosts though,other than checking in and out,plus maybe one 'good morning' .
The Hill.... Dont let anyone tell you the its a dawdle.It aint! We are in reasonable shape[thanks to short lived but commendable pre-holiday diet/exercise regime], and cursed it twice a day.Ok on the way down,but no fun at all going up.It only took us 5 minutes,harbour to apartment,but that was yomping it a bit,and it was a tough 5 minutes.We rarely climbed it without passing people stopping for a breather.Nevertheless,its not rocket science that to forsake The Hill would mean forsaking those views,so get jogging !
Having booked our room via CavtatApartments, I would have no hesitation in recommending them.All correspondence with Ida and Mihaela was friendly and efficient,as were our transfers,provided personally by the 2 girls.
To anyone harbouring misgivings about visiting Cavtat, I would say ,just go for it.A beautiful town,decent eateries,clear blue seas and skies.Temperatures during the fortnight ending 4th September never dropped from the 30's.Dubrovnik took our breath away [a bit like The Hill ],and visiting Lokrum, where we ended our day sat in a lovely forest bar with a cold beer,surrounded by resident peacocks,was another highlight.
What else? A 10 minute transfer from the airport was nice,well worth any associated overhead noise.Eating and drinking costs were similar to ,or maybe a bit cheaper than,the UK.
Picture perfect,a well used phrase on here to describe Cavtat,and its not wrong!
Did i mention The Hill...........?
