 Konavle Region

Cavtat is the most southerly Croatian resort located 20 km south of Dubrovnik .Cavtat is an exceedingly pretty town, and is a great place to base yourself in if you’re after all the sights and culture of Dubrovnik but don’t want the hustle and bustle. Cavtat is located in the region of Konavle, which has a rich cultural history. Folk costumes, embroidery and traditional dances are also an important feature of the region. These can all be seen in person in the village of Cilipi where on Sunday mornings (in spring/summer/early autumn), locals in traditional costume gather in the main square to sing and dance.  With its rich and interesting historical heritage, beautiful scenery and a wide range of tourist services, Cavtat is definitely among the most desirable tourist destinations of the region.Cavtat is a lovely location to spend a holiday and can cater for all your needs – fantastic local restaurants, cozy bars, and lots of water sports on offer. Boat trips are also available to nearby islands and there are many beautiful swimming spots in the bay. Konavle is the old agricultural area of the Dubrovnik Riviera (think wine & olives!) – a traditionally very rich area of Dubrovnik and many old families still have old family houses here. It is fast becoming the "gastro-agro-tourism” part of the coast boasting some of the best domestic restaurants in the area. Definitely worth a visit.It also has plenty of folk events and activities going on – horse riding, off-roading etc
