Spend five relaxing days on the remote island of Losinj in the northern Adriatic off Croatia's Istrian peninsula, staying at the historic Boutique Hotel Alhambra. Beautifully restored after years of neglect, this grand sea-facing hotel offers luxurious accommodation in an early 20th-century mansion, hidden among pine trees on this beautiful island paradise.
Morning flight to Rijeka or Pula. Travel to the Boutique Hotel Alhambra on the island of Lošinj, a beautiful 2-hour transfer by car and ferry. Private 30-minute plane transfers are also available aboard a Piper or Cessna aircraft (£380 per person). The remainder of the day is at leisure to relax at the hotel or explore the town of Mali Lošinj, a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. (N)Day 2: Lošinj
Today is at leisure to relax or explore the island of Lošinj with a private guide (this can easily be booked locally). A 2-hour excursion includes picturesque Veli Lošinj, with its colourful houses and huge church at the mouth of the harbour.

A highlight of the main town on the island, Mali Lošinj, is the Museum of Apoxyomenos, shortlisted for European Museum of the Year in 2019.
