We found our way easily to the Apartment Lavanda with Stijepo's directions. He was unable to meet us as a Finnish family arrived at the same time. As he is so involved with the town he loves he was very busy with the 300 year celebrations of the cathedral. He really should be on some important town tourism committee (perhaps he could do something with Miss' Happy' in the tourist information office).
HIs mother Slavica is a delight and we chatted every day and admired the family tortoise.
The flat is on the snug side but has all you need for the limited time most people would be spending in it. British people would appreciate an electric kettle for the inevitable tea. There is a lovely stone terrace outside Slavica's house where we can sit and admire the view across the bay towards the island of Lokrum. There is a bakery down the hill and a small general supermarket with a good stock, and both open really late.
We found all the local people very pleasant, helpful and always appreciative of our appalling attempts at the language ! I've never seen such a clean city - no litter anywhere.
We did a day tour to Mostar with a local company, Amico, which was worth every penny and also went to the Bay of Kotor for an overnight stay. Six days was hardly enough to see all the interesting towns close by, but do go over to Lokrum island. It's lovely and peaceful and gives you the opportunity to slow down a bit, have a drink and watch the boats go by.
