CroatianStoneHouse.COM is located just two minutes walk from the local beach. The villa has been completely renovated to a high standard for our guests. All windows are double glazed with shutters and there is air conditioning on all 3 floors.
There are also several beaches within walking distance from the property including one beach with natural shade from large pine trees. The villa is located in the beautiful village of Kastel Luksic, a very historic and peaceful village centred around a beautiful 15th century castle vitturi.
One Advantage of the Area is That It Is Open All Year Round. The Area is not Seasonal Like The Croatian Islands. Shops, Restauraunts, Cafes, Supermarkets and Bars are open all year round so you can enjoy any time of the year.
The villa is part of the original village Ostrog. A settlement of houses that were formed behind Castle Virruri in the 15th Century. In ancient times the local fishermen used to store their small boats on the ground floor of these stone houses. Even to this day you will see the original large arches by the front door that used to allow boats to be pushed inside.
The village is in an ideal location being only 15 mins from Split town by car or bus and 15 minutes to Trogir in the opposite direction. This is an ideal location to explore Croatia. The property is also within an hour of Krka National Park by car. The village has all required amenities if you do not want to hire a car. There are several supermarkets, a butchers, local market, fast food, restaurants, several bars and coffee shops, a post office, doctors and ATM machine.
The benefit of Kastela compared to the large cities are that you can enjoy pleasant walks following the coastal road for several kilometres in both directions with beautiful scenery. You can visit each of the 7 villages that make up Kastela. The coastal road also being relatively quiet is also perfect for cycle rides and running.
For those who are interested in hiring a motor boat or yacht (with or without a skipper) the property is only 5-10 mins drive from the large Kastela Marina who can provide this service.

About Tayana Charles
I live in the UK not far from London in the suburbs. I enjoy travel, fresh coffee and family life. I also like to introduce more people to the beautiful Croatia by staying at a holiday home we spent several years renovating. We have renovated to a high standard so our guests feel at home.
Tayana Charles purchased this house in 2008
Why Tayana Charles chose Split
We chose this house because it was one of the original stone houses from a village that has existed since the 15th Century. We also chose the house because of the large roof terrace which is quite rare for stone houses. The house has character with thick walls to stop the heat in summer and to keep you warmer in winter. The property is also ideally located 10 mins from Split Airport and 30 metres from the beach.
What makes this house unique
Our large roof terrace is very popular with guests. There is a table and chairs that allows dining on the terrace with mountain views. There is also a large brick BBQ that allows you to enjoy grilled meat or fish. The house is also very close to the beach/sea so you can be on the beach in seconds.
Other nice features are the large 42 inch flat screen TV in the living area and a Super King Size bed in Bedroom 1 for the comfort of our guest. We feel the house is more comfortable that most in Croatia as we have renovated to a high western standard. The house will feel like a home from home.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Communication with the owner before going was always very efficient with some great information provided about the local area. Only a short drive away from the airport and we were greeted warmly to be given the keys and shown around the property as well as the town. Plenty of shops in the town provided us with food to be cooked in the well equipped kitchen and on the rooftop BBQ. All of the locals were very friendly. Easy to catch the bus into Split which takes about half an hour, from where we took trips to Hvar and Brac. I would definitely recommend a trip to Brac! As well as UNESCO site, Trogir, which is only a 15minute bus journey away. The villa had all amenities and comforts required come rain or shine. Fully recommended.
