Villas in Croatia and Apartments by Holiday Lettings

Why Croatia?

From its sun-kissed Mediterranean coast, Croatia rises through temperate heartlands into the Dinaric Alps - a maze of crags, waterfalls and hidden lakes. Whether you’re looking to sun yourself by the bright blue sea or do a little exploring on your next holiday, there’s no safer bet than Croatia.

City By The Sea

Combine a beachside break with historic city sightseeing: Dubrovnik is among the most remarkable cities on the Mediterranean and is itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its terracotta roofs and harbour walls have featured on countless postcards. In fact, Dubrovnik is so magical that it starred in Game of Thrones as King’s Landing.

Enchanting Parks

Croatia’s national parks must be seen to be believed. At Plitvice Lakes in central Croatia, a boardwalk skirts the feet of stunning waterfalls as they plunge between exotic trees and into rich blue waters. Off the Dalmatian coast, the island of Mljet is a heavenly way to beat the crowds.

Summer Heat

Hoping to return to work a little browner this year? Intense summer sun makes Croatia immensely popular with anyone in search of a tan. In August, Dubrovnik averages almost 30 degrees, but the highs have been known to skirt the forties. You’ll be glad of the refreshing sea breeze.

Primorje-Gorski Kotar County

Among all the villas and apartments in Croatia, there’s no better place for nature lovers than those in Gorski Kotar. It’s a rugged, mountainous region affectionately known as ‘Croatian Switzerland’ on account of its lush forests, green valleys and placid lakes. A truly tranquil retreat.


Istria, in the west, is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic, and it has a rich Roman, Venetian and Napoleonic history. In Pula, you’ll find Roman ruins, such as the incredible Pula Arena - an enormous stone amphitheatre. Further north, Rovinj’s Old Town is as quaint as they come.


Dalmatia includes Croatia’s entire southwestern coast, and the majority of its 1,244 islands, islets, stacks and reefs. It is, in other words, a coastal paradise. Home to Dubrovnik and Mljet National Park, Dalmatia should be the first stop for anybody new to Croatia.


Cooler than the coast, central Croatia is home to the country’s capital city, Zagreb, and unusual attractions like Museum of Naive Art and the Museum of Broken Relationships. If you’d prefer something less abstract, it’s also where you’ll find the remarkable Plitvice National Park and its famed cascades.

Things to do in Croatia

Plitvice Lakes

Famed for its awe-inspiring cascades, Plitvice Lakes National Park is a must-see for everyone visiting central Croatia.


The fast-paced capital of Croatia, Zagreb combines historic streets and famous monuments with edgy modern attractions.

Krka National Park

Along the Krka River in the south is a series of seven stunning waterfalls. You can even take a swim.


Split is known for its beaches and the fortified, 4th-century Diocletian’s Palace that makes up the town centre.

Bra_ Island

Every sun seeker should make the pilgrimage to Bra_ Island’s sandy peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the deep blue Adriatic Sea.
