Cavtat is beautiful,very relaxing and an easy place to take a holiday in.
Several bays make for lots of boat interest as you take an easy walk into town on the flat.
Lots of restaurants along the way. We did not have spectacular food in any of the places we ate out in but it was adequate and not expensive. The views while eating dinner were a real bonus.
The price of a glass of wine was on the whole about £2.50 and was very good...one or two places at about £1.60 per glass...not so good!!
We stayed at Villa Fontana which was on the edge of Cavtat. From the apartment to right the other end of Cavtat was about 20-30 minutes stroll but the apartment was on the flat. Lots of other apartments behind but they are on quite a steep hill.
Janet who owns the complex was very nice indeed. Met us at the airport gave us the tour of the town and was overall very helpful indeed.
The apartment was not the best we have ever hired. We have had some stunning apartments in Portugal for instance at less cost. But it was fine for a week for two of us.
For instance the second bedroom did not have a window other than a skylight in the ceiling.
The en suite shower room had a sloping ceiling which made it difficult to stand at the washbasin and I am 5'3.
There was only a cold water tap in the washbasin in the en suite
The shower tray is quite small and the curtain sticks to you while showering.
We had one or two hiccups but Millie who is the cleaner sorted them out in a flash and was very helpful.
Wifi was brilliant. Pool very nice but if it's windy the umbrellas can be somewhat mobile!
But it was a nice quiet area with lovely views and very rural.
