Croatia owes its newfound fame as vacation heaven to its mild Mediterranean climate and its extraordinary indented coastline of headlands, bays and islands with its thousands of unspoiled coves and beaches. Just offshore from Split is a group of popular islands including Brac, which has four ferry ports with fast catamaran connections with the mainland and with its neighbors. On its south coast is the port of Bol and its nearby beach, the most famous in Croatia.
Built in the hills above it, your welcoming Croatian vacation villa enjoys a suntrap position with spectacular views over the neighboring islands and the sparkling waters of the Adriatic. Set amongst the olive and pine trees, your home-away-from-home offers a peaceful retreat away from the crowds, yet is only a short walk from the beach and the waterside activities. Decorated in a casual beachside style, this delightful vacation villa is the perfect setting for a carefree vacation. The main upper floor includes a generous living area combining sitting and dining space, with a fully fitted kitchen at one end. An open staircase leads up to a gallery area with a daybed, perfect for a quiet read or nap. You can also enjoy your meals and relax in comfort on the shaded veranda, as you watch the ever-changing spectacle of sky, sea and the wooded islands opposite.
Bedrooms are on the cooler lower level, and you can walk out from your room to a delightful terrace among the olive trees. A few yards away above the house, where the views are even more spectacular, is the heated pool, with pool house and summer kitchen, a shaded loggia for dining and comfortable recliners for soaking up the sun.
From your Croatian villa you can walk down about 100 yards to the deservedly famous Zlatni Rat beach, a long spit of sand reaching out into the sparkling waters. From here you can take a taxi boat or bus into the town of Bol, or take a day trip to discover some of the hundreds of beaches and beauty spots among the delightful islands and warm waters of this spectacular Dalmatian Coast.
