“Beautiful villa in perfect location for the Split area”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We highly recommend this villa. We spent a very happy week there in August. Temperature was fixed at around 34 degrees. The villa has a superb pool, excellent air con, great kitchen and bedrooms. The host was truly wonderful and surpassed any other host we have had in our many years of travelling. He actually drove us to the supermarket when we arrived and was full of enthusiasm and knowledge.
The villa is very close to the sea but there is no sand and not even much shingle in the area - mainly concrete where folk sun-bathe and dive in. There is a sandy beach in Split itself - worth a visit one day. We used the number 15 bus to get into Split - about 30 mins from villa to Split. Don't go here if you want to walk to sandy beaches - we did all our sunbathing by the pool.
We hired a car - indispensable. We used it for supermarkets as well as driving to places like Trogir, Salona and Klis (all amazing). We used the bus to get us to Split port from where we caught a boat to Hvar one day (essential to pre-book - well worth it).
Overall - we had a wonderful holiday here as both the villa and the area are great places to spend a week or two.

“A well equipped villa with friendly owner which combined to give an excellent base for this part of Dalmatia”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Owner, Lovre, was busy finishing off preparations when we arrived ( 10 mins early) and ensured we received a warm welcome and understood how everything worked. The air conditioning was highly efficient which we appreciated given the temperatures during our stay. Facilities in the villa were very good, as was the pool which was kept well. Can't fault the villa. The nearby beach was quiet until about 17.00 everyday when the locals make it very lively and all go down to either chill or make an early start to their parties. It then goes quiet again after 19.00. Old Split Town is beautiful and has a real buzz, with the Old Roman Palace of Diocletian forming an integral part of many of the buildings in use today. Great choice of where to eat and drink, staff of all very welcoming and helpful and they manage to preserve all the atmosphere of a world heritage site while catering for the needs of young and old.You may prefer getting the 15 bus or a taxi in and out of town as parking in Split is not easy. If you travel a little wider Trogir offers a lot of nice views and experiences in a quite small area with water almost on four sides. The motorway South toward Dubroknik was very quiet and we sped through the mountains when we came up from Dubrovnik and also when we later went into Bosnia to see the old town of Mostar. Lovre and Vera were available when we needed to check or chat about anything but not at all instrusive. Overall had a lovely holiday there.
