Basic information

The little bottle of oil and the lavender bag have for decades been a symbol of the island of Hvar and make an ideal souvenir, which with its scent awakens the memories of the picturesque scenery and sunny days spent on Hvar. The story of Hvar lavender started in the beautiful little village of Velo Grablje near the town of Hvar, in which the beautiful rural architecture creates a specific atmosphere. Traditionally, every year at the end of June, the lavender festival takes place in that village. The lavender festival is a real feast for the soul, a journey through a revived tradition, a walk through time, fragrance and colour. During the event you can revel in a wide choice of lavender products as well as presentations about traditional lavender distillation, local cuisine, exhibitions, workshops, concerts and many other events. Local people will make sure that your visit to the lavender festival will remain an unforgettable experience.
