Hotel Cavtat Hotel Map

Local Area

Cavtat is big enough to require a day or two to explore, with ancient architecture, an array of churches and circular walking trails leading around a pair of pine-fringed promontories. The bustling fishing port, where the morning’s catch is sold straight from the boat, is perfect for a wander. Finish up with a cappuccino in one of the many cafes, or try out one of the superb restaurants – at Konoba Kolona, the menu regularly includes tuna caught by the owner. Day trip possibilities include fascinating Dubrovnik, easily reachable by water taxi or a 30-minute local bus, and Kotor, set on a dramatic bay in neighbouring Montenegro. Its cobbled streets and Roman fortifications start at sea level and extend high onto the mountainside.

Dubrovnik and its Monastery Gardens


Visit Dubrovnik's Franciscan Monastery and Cloister, which dates from 1317. The cloister garden has a wide central walk with stone benches and an ornamental well at one end. Following this you'll explore the Dominican Priory, built in 1456. The cloisters are still planted with oranges and other citrus fruit as they would have been originally, but now there are also old roses, such as ‘La France’ (1867), the first hybrid tea rose and ‘Paul Neyron’ (1869), a hybrid perpetual. You will also visit the little market, the Rector’s Palace and the cathedral.
