Things to do in Dalmatia

There are many places to visit in this beautiful region. Known for its Roman and Venetian ruins and set on a peninsula on the stunning Dalmatian coast, Zadar is a beautiful historic city and an intriguing one at that. Discover quiet streets of marble, pine-scented beaches, ancient relics, medieval churches and cosmopolitan cafes. From here you can sail to the nearby island of Sali, with its large salt-water lake and national park, and discover the impressive Roman Forum constructed between the 1st century BC and the 3rd century AD. 

UNESCO-protected Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and the largest city in Dalmatia. It is a vibrant and bustling port city with a fantastic location between the mountains and the sea. This historic city is the economic and cultural centre of the Dalmatian coast, and islanders flock here to work. It is not all about city life though, there is also the glorious beach and seaside promenade, roman ruins and medieval churches, shady walks and narrow winding streets. Our villas in Split are perfectly positioned to discover this wonderful city.

For spectacular natural beauty visit Plitvice Lakes National Park or enjoy a boat trip to Hvar and Brac. We have villas on Hvar and Brac, which are ideal for exploring these National Parks.
