Location, location, location. Not just true for residential properties as we discovered on holiday in Croatia when we stumbled onto what I consider to be the most wonderfully located bar / cafe in the world. There truly can be no better location than on top of the rocks on the outside of the Dubrovnik city wall, overlooking the tiny island of Locrum and the deep blue water of the Aegean sea.
We made this wonderful discovery purely by chance. Strolling on the inside of the city wall we heard music but initially could not determine exactly where it was coming from. We followed the sound and discovered a few steps leading to a hole in the city wall. We stepped through the hole and was welcomed by the most wonderful sight.
People were sitting at tables scattered on various levels of smoothed rock, while they enjoyed their drinks, the sun and the music. There was a small bar area from where drinks were served and near the water’s edge quite a few sunbathers took full advantage of the hot sun before cooling of with a dip in the ocean.
There were no fancy cocktails and no real food, only beer, wine and a small selection of spirits. But the wonderful music, relaxed atmosphere, inspiring views and the most breathtaking sunset imaginable lured us back every late afternoon for the duration of our holiday.
