I vowed not to do any night driving on my Croatian road trip, but alas....at 9:30 pm, with a sun that was long gone, I traumatized myself, and companions, by driving the winding, dark, sheer-drop-off roads and dragged into Cavtat to the Villa Bella Vista! I never did get to see that Bella Vista because I had to fly out at 6 am.....BUT we were greeted by Lari and his mom Senka and ice cold beers for me and my travel companions. They were so welcoming and soothing after I had just scared the wits out of myself, and my friends, with that harrowing drive! We had a 2 bedroom apartment that was spotless and well equipped. Everything was new, the bed was comfy and it had AC which was a bonus. I had to go to the airport at 4:00 am and Luca was kind enough to drive me. My friends stayed another day and night and got to see the "bella vista" and the charming town of Cavtat and met Lari's wife Mare the next day. They had only positive things to say about the rest of their stay. My only regret is that my bathroom had a beautiful Jacuzzi that was calling my name, to get in and relax, and I was too tired and had to get up in a couple of hours! Everything about Villa Bella Vista and the host family is terrific!
