Default Trip to Croatia

I'm planning a trip to Croatia by car in June. There'll be quite a lot
of driving involved so I'm looking for a nice quiet place to stay put for a
few days on the Dalmation coast.

I'm not interested in beaches particularly, nor anywhere with large hotels.
Ideally a small town or village with a harbour and enough tourism to support
a few places to stay and eat, but no more.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Last year we went to the Pelion peninsular
in Greece looking for somewhere similar, and found a place called Damouchari
which was ideal.

Default Trip to Croatia

Try to find browsing www.croatia-tourist.net. There is a map of Croatia and
images of accommodation (and places), detailed description and prices of
accommodation in each town.
Personally, I reccommend island Hvar - crystal clear water, beautiful old
city (city Hvar on island Hvar) living 0-24 with rich night life and the
most beautiful beaches (even they doesn't bother you ). Island Hvar is the
place with the most sunny days in a year in Croatia.
But if you prefer not to travel with ferry, very nice places to stay are
Makarska (middle Dalmatia), and places around city of Split.

Hope it helps.

Just go slightly south to Kotor, Montenegro.
Unbelievable beautiful medieval town, outstanding surrounding 'fjord &
mountain' scenery.
One of the undiscovered gems of the Med.

Sounds tempting but probably too far this time.

What's the language and currency? Hospitable to English-speaking
visitors?

I liked Omis - it's on the main coast road so you could leave the car
elsewhere and get there by bus if you wanted. Ideal if you fish, as
the river is used a lot for that. It's got an old castle, a near-
deserted satellite village up the hill, a spectacular setting under
the mountains and a pub where the local "klapa" singing group meets
regularly.

Montenegro uses the Euro, although they are not yet in the EU.
They're becoming well-tuned towards tourism, absolutely hospitable.

Thanks. I might try stopping there for a day or two. I was planning to go
that way en route to Drvenic to take the ferry to Hvar

Not so hospitable to some. This is why I decided not to visit:

On that basis, is there anywhere in the world you could visit?
