Most Exclusive Destinations in Europe Cavtat
Opis Zagreb

1. Cavtat

 Konavle - Croatia

Are you dreaming about a place where life is a simple pleasure? On your doorstep, with a great deal of things to do, to see, to enjoy, to experience. And all this in the Best Honeymoon Destination in Europe and Most Beautiful Bay in Europe.


Let us help you with your search… there is a stunningly beautiful part of Europe, precisely in Croatia, near “must visit” Dubrovnik. It is called Cavtat and is located in Konavle region - so called Croatian Tuscany


The picturesque charming town of Cavtat is possibly the most famous place in Konavle region and it is situated only 18 km from Dubrovnik. Its best kept secret is the old town centre that hides many lovely cafés and restaurants. It has a stunning waterfront lined with palm trees and has been described as closely resembling Saint Tropez. No surprise that Cavtat is this year on the first place of your Most Exclusive Destinations in Europe.


Cavtat is not a place for those seeking clubs and wild nights. It is a place to relax and recharge your batteries while enjoying gorgeous scenery, food and wine. Life goes by slowly in this part of the world, a quality which made this place a desirable destination for a proper laid-back vacation.


Far from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik this quiet little town has a magical serene feel. In short, Cavtat is busy enough to keep you entertained but quiet enough to offer a bit of privacy.


How to get there: Book your flights to Dubrovnik and your transfer.


Where to stay: "Hotel Croatia". Overlooking the Adriatic.
