The appartment being located centrally in the old town quarter of Cres, proved to be a massive plus. The old town is a hive of local colour, away from the obvious tourist areas, offering narrow weaving streets between tightly clustered small original housing and a view on the residents of both past and present Cres. If you bring a car, the obvious catch is parking, there is space available near by, but it proves a significant relative daily cost. The town itself is ideally located for access to the rest of the island, being only about 70km long and a list of stunning coastal beaches with water crystal clear. Supermarkets are open late, but better still discover the local bakery and fishmonger. If the weather proves to be as warm as it was during our stay, the grill, where we cooked most nights, is a plus being outside but shaded by the over hanging vine. Don't forget to switch on the water boilers if you need hot water and the fans are a must in hot weather. Our whole experience, of both the appartment, the town of Cres and the island as a whole was nothing more than fantastic and although I don't wish to encourage every Tom, Dick and Harry to charge straight towards this corner of the world and there for spoil it, I can't recommend enough the appartment, Cres the old town and the island as a whole.
