Official star rating:
On the unspoilt, rugged island of Vis, this chic boutique hotel occupies a traditional Dalmatian stone building one block back from the seafront and a ten-minute walk from the port.
The ten rooms and suites are decorated in minimalist style with modern amenities and free Wi-Fi.
The Boccadoro restaurant serves breakfast in a walled garden planted with palms and lemon trees, with creative Mediterranean cuisine at dinner. Staff are charming and full of recommendations.
The hotel has bicycles for hire on a half-day or full-day basis – the perfect way to reach the island’s more secluded beaches.
The hotel is in a quiet stone alley, one block back from the seafront in the car-free centre of Vis Town. The town is made up of old stone cottages built in typical Dalmatian style.
Vis Town is relatively sleepy and unspoilt by tourism, but gets crowded in July and August, when countless sailing boats moor up along the quayside each evening.
Near the hotel, several decent waterside seafood restaurants cater for the yachting crowd.
