Choose a villa in Trogir to experience one of the most gorgeous destinations on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, one of the oldest towns on the coastline protected by medieval walls. This Hollywood-esque harbour town lies on a small island connected to the mainland and is all Renaissance and Romanesque buildings, narrow cobbled lanes, hidden restaurants and breathtaking views. From your Trogir villa, you’re perfectly located to visit the number of beautiful beaches that fringe the town, wander the seaside promenade and explore Central Dalmatia – with Trogir only 17 miles from Split and three miles from Split airport.

From your villa in Trogir, it’s easy to head into town on foot and explore, and what awaits you is a treasure trove of history, architecture and culture. A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997, Trogir is filled with Baroque and Renaissance architecture, beautiful old churches (the most impressive being the 13th-century Cathedral of St Lawrence), and a maze of marble lanes hiding local restaurants, boutique shops and art galleries.
Couples will love the wide seaside promenade lined with palm trees, bars and cafes, while families will want to head to nearby Okrug Gornji beach – a 30-minute boat ride or 10-minute drive from Trogir and the area’s main beach resort. Trogir is also perfectly located to explore the local area and hiring a car will give you the freedom to explore further afield.
Head into nearby Split for an action-packed day of exploring (top sights being the Diocletian's Palace, Saint Domnius Cathedral and Mestrovic Gallery) and to enjoy a meal at the city’s beautiful waterfront. Delicious Croatia’s dishes to try include black squid ink risotto, pršut (cured ham) and brudet (slow-cooked fish casserole).

History and culture in Trogir
The town of Trogir is over 2,000 years old, founded by the Greeks, conquered by the Venetians and once part of the Hapsburg Empire – and as a result there are many historical sites in the town. Trogir itself is surrounded by medieval stone walls, and once inside you’ll find a treasure trove of sites like the 13th-century Cathedral of St. Lawrence, Tower Kemerlengo fortress and the gothic Cippiko Palace – dating back to the medical era.
Visit the Cathedral of St Lawrence to see the Renaissance Chapel of St. John and climb the bell tower for incredible views of the sparkling blue bay. Other historical and cultural sights include the Historic City of Trogir heritage museum and the Atelier Uremovic art gallery – all within walking distance from your Trogir villa.
Family holidays in Trogir
A Trogir villa holiday is great for families, offering safe and clean nearby beaches, great weather and a couple of children’s playgrounds. For family days at the beach there’s Okrug Gornji, the area’s main beach resort with a great selection of restaurants and bars, serving crowd-pleasers like pizzas, steaks and sandwiches.
With Trogir such a short journey away from Split, it’s also easy to enjoy a day out to the city and visit attractions like the Aquarium Split – the largest marine aquarium in Croatia and the Natural History Museum. Being a drive away from the beach, we recommend getting a villa in Trogir with a private pool, giving you the freedom to spend days at home while keeping the whole family entertained. There’s plenty to do on a Trogir family villa holiday.

Romance in Trogir
A couples’ Croatia villa holiday is incredibly romantic, especially one in Trogir – a medieval walled town located on an island surrounded by white sands and blue seas. The old town itself oozes romance and appeal, and couples should spend a day getting lost in its narrow cobbled streets, seeking out hidden restaurants and enjoying a romantic stroll along the palm-fringed waterfront promenade. With charming restaurants and bars, the promenade is also perfect for a date night.
Couples can also head into nearby Split to enjoy a ritzy date night, at one of the city’s swanky fine dining establishments along the waterfront.
