Occupying an early 20th-century stone villa, the Grand Villa Argentina is just a 5-minute walk from Ploče Gate, east of the Old Town. Set amid a glorious terraced garden, with orange trees, and rosemary and lavender bushes, it is refined and restful. Rooms come with slightly dated old-world décor, but are perfectly comfortable; the best ones have sea views and balconies. Down below, a spacious waterside stone terrace, lined with sunbeds, features a saltwater swimming pool. It also affords easy access to the sea, for those who prefer to swim away from the coast.
