About this location
The Dalmatia region
Marjan is a hill on the peninsula of the city of Split, largest city of Croatia's Dalmatia region. It is covered in a dense Mediterranean pine forest and completely surrounded by the city and the sea, making it a unique sight. Originally used as a park by the citizens as early as the 3rd century, it is a favorite weekend excursion destination and a recreational center for the city. It is also the setting for numerous beaches and jogging trails as well as tennis courts and the city Zoo, all surrounded by the scenic forest. The tip of the peninsula houses the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (Institut za oceanografiju i ribarstvo, IZOR).Marjan is 178 m tall and offers a view of the entire city, the surrounding islands, and the nearby mountains of Mosor and Kozjak.
This unique location offers you COMPLETE peace – a large private property with no neighbors around. Villa is situated on a private estate in Park Forest Marjan (also called "The lunghs of Split"). From our villa, it takes a five-minute DRIVE to get to the centre of the town - the legendary 1700 years old historic town of Split (the city of Roman emperor Diocletian).Since the house is situated in park forest the entrance is protected with a ramp and guards 24/7. The ramp is closed from 01.05. - 01.10. Only the people who live in the park wood and the employees of Oceanographic Institute had a permission to enter (the whole traffic is banned through the wood for anyone else). But, we got the permission for all our guests to park right by the house and anyone who stays at Villa Karina gets a permission card for cars during their stay (so you can enter and exit the ramp as many times you want and nobody will ask you anything). We have 2 big parking places just by the street on our private land (about 20m beneath the house). Marjan is surounded with several beaches of different types (larger public city beaches and smaller, hidden and intimate places), everything few minutes by foot or even less by car to the ones that are a bit further. Beaches are situated on the south as well as on the north side of Marjan so you can find shade at any time of the day. The whole park forest is ideal for walking, running, rollerskating and biking (a real sports and health/recreation paradise), also with great freeclimbing area 300 meters from the house. There is a recreation center in the same park wood called "Bene" with many sports (tennis, football and basketball courts, small outdoor gym) and entertaining facilities (safe sandy beach and amusement park) for kids and adults just 10 minutes walking from the house.
