Croatian Villa Holidays

Described by the National Tourist Board as “The Mediterranean as it once was”, Croatia has not given in to mass tourism, but rather boasts a wealth of culture, mountain resorts, blue flag beaches and nature reserves. The diversity found in Croatia makes it the perfect destination for your villa retreat, whatever you are looking for from your holiday.

Croatia consists of nearly 1250 miles of coastline with over 1200 islands, of which only 50 are inhabited. Tourism is mainly concentrated around the Istrian peninsula in the north, the middle coastal area and islands near Split, and Dalmatia to the south of Dubrovnik.


Lying at the top of the Adriatic, this heart-shaped peninsula is the largest in Croatia and offers picturesque medieval towns perched atop rolling, wooded limestone hills. Along the clean shores of crystal clear waters bob lively fishing boats, and the rocky coastline with specially constructed platforms provides excellent swimming in the sparkling water.


Stretching from just south of Istria to the border with Montenegro, and home to the first illustrations of the dog with the same name, this historical region of Croatia has much to offer discerning tourists who chose to rent a villa here. The island speckled coastline includes the World Heritage city of Dubrovnek with its glamorous night life and celebrity spotting, while secluded coves and remote lighthouse islets are waiting to be discovered.

Croatia’s recent increasing popularity means prices are no longer bargain basement but it still remains a good value holiday destination with airlines flying to all the main urban centres along the coast. Along with one of the sunniest climates in Europe and a family friendly atmosphere, it is easy to see tourists come flooding back.

Although villa holidays are fairly new in Croatia, there are increasing numbers of apartment and villa rentals, some British owned, becoming available. Getting a villa rental in Croatia is the perfect way to enjoy all this natural beauty and culture.

Hvar Island

Hvar Island

With vast fields of lavender, olive trees and vineyards, surrounded by stunning beaches and crystal blue waters, the Croatian island of Hvar has to be one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world.

Now is a particularly good time to book as the school holidays are over and many low cost airlines are offering great winter deals on flights.

With special offers when booking as a family or group, or for those staying longer than a week, this recently renovated island house might be just the accommodation for you!

It has stunning views of the Adriatic sea, town and hills. There are five double plus one single bedroom and the property has recently been renovated to an excellent standard. With all the amenities one would expect with such a substantial holiday villa, guests also benefit from two large patios, a garden, sunbeds, outdoor tables and chairs. Laundry will be done each week and you can expect to be greeted by an English/Croatian couple who will give advice on what to do and where to go on Hvar island and other nearby islands and mainland in Croatia.
