For a taste of rural Croatian life, look no further than Slano. Located just 40 minutes from Dubrovnik, this sleepy fishing village is set in a remote corner of Dalmatia, surrounded by rolling fields of herbs, bay trees and olive groves. Slano holidays promise a wonderful sense of seclusion. Visitors come for its beaches, hiking trails and for a healthy dose of relaxation. With Roman and Greek ruins dotted across its pine-covered hillsides, Slano is a joy to walk around – and one of the most beautiful settlements in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County.
Holidays to Slano are set on a crescent-shaped bay fringed by green cypresses, and the village is about as far from a busy resort town as you can get, meaning you can enjoy its many sheltered beaches in peace and quiet. A handful of family-run restaurants provide classic Dalmatian hospitality, freshly caught fish and a lavishly beautiful setting in which to enjoy a meal, with fabulous sea views along the waterfront.
