4 days in September best place to be based

Hi, we are planning 4 days in mid September and not sure where the best place to be based is.

We are interested in taking in locals sights and experiences and enjoy boat trips and eating out at good local restaurants. As we are away without the kids, would like to stay in a nice boutique type of hotel or apartment . Initial thoughts were to stay in Dubrovnick old town but like the idea of sitting on a balcony watching the sun set with a nice glass of wine!

We fly into Dubrovnick and didn't know whether to hire a car or hire one on a daily basis.

Any suggestions or ideas greatly appreciated.

Cheers Prosecco64.

Where are you driving to.....are you intending to go to Mostar or Montenegro? Otherwise in 4 days go to the islands or cavtat by boat. Ston or mali ston by bus and you can have a good vino or two without worries.

For 4 days, I would suggest staying just outside of the Old Town in Ploce or Pile. If you would like a nice boutique modern style hotel the Bellevue is very nice and is only about 10 minutes walking distance from Pile (Old Town). Another option is to rent a private apartment in Ploce. There are really great views from Ploce, but often a lot of stairs to get there.

I forgot to mention, you don't need to rent a car in Dubrovnik. If you want to make a day trip to Montenegro or Mostar you can either rent a car for the day or take an organized trip. For other local destinations such as Cavtat or Lapad you can take the local bus.
