Island of Hvar, Croatia (407)
Explore a seaside hideaway, Villa Floriana, on a Croatian island in the
Adriatic Sea called Hvar. On the journey in, visit the port town of Split on
Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, a cobblestone historical jewel protected by
UNESCO.

A short ferry ride away is Hvar, where you can swim in the villa's private
bay, hike the endless and surprising trails and chase the island's wild
sheep, known as mouflon. All the while, immerse yourself in rich and
colorful history and drink in the breathtaking landscapes
