We had a wonderful week in beautiful Trsteno. It was delightful to wake to birdsong, look out at the sea and islands, have a leisurely breakfast on the terrace, then walk down the path to the picturesque harbour with butterflies fluttering about and swim from the end of the jetty with hardly anyone about. We could have stayed for months. The owners of the house live nearby and were charming, helpful and generous.
The Renaissance gardens and arboretum at Trsteno are lovely and the house is in the part of the village which clusters to one side of the gardens between the road and the sea. The paved pathways between the houses have occasional steps and no motor vehicles can get through.
We were able to drive close to the house to unload and then left the car on the other side of the gardens- we enjoyed strolling through to reach it.
There is a road to the harbour but, in June, there were few people about. We felt we had it to ourselves.
There is a friendly bar...
