Laid-Back Luxury on Stari Grad Bay


Facilities & services

  • Three rooms and four suites
  • Terrace restaurant


  • Tailored activities including wine tasting, cultural excursions, hiking, and boat trips

Occupying a sympathetically restored 19th-century building, Apolon overlooks Stari Grad’s charming, boat-filled harbour, just a short distance up the bay from the main square. As the oldest town in all of Croatia and a former Greek colony, Stari Grad is still one of the most charming towns on the Croatian coast.

Despite the pink neo-classical facade’s aristocratic vibe, Apolon remains unpretentious, offerring instead a delightfully laid back retreat in authentic historic surroundings. There are just three rooms and four suites, all with wooden floors, oriental rugs, and chintz bedcovers and curtains and most enjoy views through large windows across the bay. Bathrooms are spacious and feature free-standing bathtubs and under-floor heating.

The terrace restaurant is popular with the passengers of passing yachts who often moor up their vessels on the quay out front. Food here is focussed on the use of local seasonal ingredients such as fresh Adriatic seafood, lamb, and organic garden produce, all accompanied by Dalmatian wines. Service is personalised and professional, with local staff on hand to arrange a number of tailored activities such wine tasting, cultural excursions, hiking, and boat trips.
