1) Hvar, Croatia
Hvar is said to be the sunniest place in Europe, with 2,715 hours of sunshine every year! All of that sunshine means you’ll be spending plenty of time outside — biking, hiking, and heading down to the beach. A trip to the sea doesn’t have to take you too long. There are reasonably priced waterfront villas that will give you breathtaking views. On the weekends, change up the scenery by hopping on a ferry and heading over to one of the neighboring islands!
