Villas in Split
Split, in Dalmatia, is the second largest city in Croatia and the largest on the Adriatic coast. With excellent transport connections by bus, sea, air and train, it’s easy to travel to and from the city and is fast becoming a popular holiday destination. It is a buzzing, exuberant city which combines tradition with modernity. Split has some beautiful architecture, fabulous and varied restaurants, interesting bars and a lively nightlife, not to mention some dazzling beaches and shorelines.
Some of Croatia’s most beautiful islands are easily accessed from Split; Brac is the largest island in central Dalmatia with several towns and villages and a striking landscape of steep cliffs, inky waters and pine forests. The scenery on Hvar Island is awe-inspiring with abandoned ancient hamlets, vineyards and the lavender fields for which the island is famous, but a visit to swanky Hvar town is a must – this really is the place to see and be seen with elegant restaurants and legendary bars, Hvar is rapidly becoming the go to place for the latest generation of “Jet Setters”.
Things we love…
“Split is the launchpad for visiting the unique and beautiful islands scattered amongst the turquoise sea and we highly recommend exploring this unique coastline by boat. Just a short ferry ride from each other, the islands are each distinct and mesmerising.”
Things to be aware of…
“The historical old town area of Split is a car free zone so plan ahead if you intend on spending a day exploring the area. It is often best to park just outside the town and then explore on foot. We can also help arrange transfers and tours from your accommodation and back again for the ultimate stress-free day out.”
