On arrival at the apartment, you will be met by our English speaking representative with the keys.

As most beaches in Croatia are pebble beaches, it is advisable to bring waterproof footwear, particularly for children (TEVA's, Crocs, jelly sandals etc).
Please note that this apartment is located at the top of a steep hill. The downside is that the walk back from the beach / village / restaurants is steep, the upside is the stunning scenery and the serenity.
Please also be aware that the pool is only open from May 1st and that other facilities in the area (such as the water taxi, some restaurants and beach bars etc) can be quite limited in the low season. Most facilities are open by mid-June.
The Dalmatia region
The arts, heritage and lifestyle, that's central Dalmatia in a nutshell. This makes it a place not to miss - for fun, rest and relaxation while enjoying the 1700-year-old tradition!
In the year 305, the Roman Emperor Diocletian (who had practically the entire known world at his feet), chose the centre of Dalmatia as the place to build the country house in which he would enjoy the last ten years of his life. Today the former Imperial Palace is the settled historical core of Split, Croatia's second largest city and the eternally young, noisy and merry centre of the region's tourism and economy that sets the rhythm, style and cheer for its wider surroundings, the smaller tourist destinations, the islands off its shores and the green hinterland heart of Dalmatia.
A number of one-day trips are available from Trogir:-
SPLIT - A town of classical Roman, old Croatian, Romanesque and renaissance architecture, with a Mediterranean atmosphere. Split is easily explored on foot and is a delightful place to while away a few hours. It is a shoppers paradise, whether wandering through the narrow cobbled streets or haggling for bargains at the large outdoor market. When you need a rest, where better to enjoy a cup of coffee than on the expansive marina looking out onto the islands of Brac and Hvar.
MAKARSKA, the centre of the riviera and coastal area, is a natural choice, with its town square, Cathedral of St. Mark, but above all because of the Franciscan Monastery and its rich collections.
PRIMOSTEN, a gorgeous islet 20 minutes north of Trogir. The prefect place to spend a day exploring.
KRKA Waterfalls, one hour north of Trogir. Enjoy a leisurely walk throught the forest, spectacular views of the waterfalls and the chance to swim in the lake.
