If you plan to travel to Croatia and you are thinking about the best accommodation, do not hesitate to choose a villa, whether it is in Istria, Dalmatia or on the Adriatic islands. Will you resist to an old stone house with all the modern comforts on the inside and fairy tale landscapes in the surroundings?
How charming the villas are?
Most of the times, villas are charming; otherwise, it should not be called a villa! You are always expecting a beautiful house with a nice garden, an outdoor barbecue corner and a private pool (optional). You will for sure find lots of luxury villas to rent in Croatia and they will meet your expectation and maybe beyond. You can even find a dining area and a bar area in some of them. What makes the Croatian villas special and authentic is its architecture, made from old stones. It does not mean all villas in this country are made from stones. We are just talking about the ones in ancient villages. If you are lucky enough, you may stay in a medieval house! Those who can afford it would also rent a room in a castle or the entire castle! It is much better than choosing from apartments in Croatia! I let you imagine the landscape!
How beautiful the landscapes are?
If you are looking for villas to rent in Croatia, they are most of the time sorted by city, such as in this website. Your choice may be based on your place of stay or on your knowledge of the city, on how charming the villa will be because of the surroundings, the landscapes! For example in Istria, you can stay in a restored old stone house located in a village (Porec, Vizinada and Pula…) set in the countryside; sometimes settled among pine trees. In Dalmatia, in the towns of Sevid or Skradin, in the village of Lokva Rogoznica, seize the opportunity to stay in a little cottage with a lush garden! The views include vast vineyards, olive yards, medieval churches and the sea crushing against rocks. The Krka National Park is always within reach! On the Adriatic islands (Hvar, Vis, Rab, Korčula, Brač, Mljet, etc.), enjoy magical coastal views in a village nestled on top of a hill!
How comfortable the private houses are?
Holiday villas in Croatia all have comfortable rooms and fully-equipped kitchens. The best ones include an open space living area, an outdoor dining veranda, a covered terrace with BBQ, a patio, a swimming pool, sometimes with sun-bathing area or a sea-facing sun-lounger, a pool house, a private gym, a sauna and even a tennis court. If you are travelling with children, prefer a private house with a playground made of slide, swing, sandpit, climber and playhouse. Your kids will appreciate! It is also important not to be too far from civilization! Your chosen villa will certainly be at least a quick drive away from the old town, historic cobbled streets, cafes, shops, restaurants, beaches, entertainments, etc.
