Too crowded first week of July?

My son is graduating from St. Andrews University Scotland on 6/26 and we're planning a little adventure to celebrate. We're in Paris 6/28 to 7/02 since my daughter (15) has never been (although my wife was 4.5 months pregnant with her when we went in 98' she says that doesn't count). From there, 4 nights on the Croatia coast, July 02-06. From Croatia, back to London for a few days to see friends before flying back to NY.

We need the sun/warmth (BADLY) since this past winter was one of the worst seen in the last half century. Relax, take it easy, soak up the atmosphere, eat good food, sleep well (and late) if we want. No big cities, no running. I'm thinking Korcula, Vis, Hvar, day trip to Bol, possibly a coastal city; something to keep our attention for 4 days. My trepidation is that early July will already be quite crowded by then. We're renting apartments in Paris and London and we're open to a good hotel on this leg of our trip.

My son has been dying to get to Croatia since he started at University. He's been just about everywhere else so we're all looking forward to this.

Suggestions?

You want to take it easy in 4 days only?? Then pick up just one destination near the airport of arrival and make one or two daytrips.

Beginning of July is no way crowded when compared with first two weeks of August. But weekends may be very busy everywhere..

Split, there is no more Bol airport I think, but Bol is rather quiet and good for relaxing beach holidays.
