Nestled Away In A 15th Century Village Experience The Real Croatia Experience

Luxury Stone House in a beautiful village that dates from the 15th century only 30 metres from the sea and just 2 minutes walk from the closest beach.

On the ground floor you have a fully equipped kitchen with large fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, espresso machine, oven, toaster + kettle. There is also a bathroom with a 2 person bath, large sink and toilet.

On the 2nd floor there is a 2nd bathroom with a jacuzzi shower with radio and multiple jets, large sink and toilet. This floor also has a bedroom with a Super King Bed for your comfort and a 32 Inch flat screen TV for Satellite and DVD Viewing.

On the 3rd floor there is a large open plan lounge with 42 inch flat screen TV, Satellite system multi- country, DVD player, hifi , Playstation 2 along with a large sofa bed as well as a 2nd single sofa bed. The room is dual purpose. It can be used purely as a living room or can sleep up to 3 persons.

On the 4th floor is a Large Roof Terrace with a charcoal brick barbecue, table and chairs and a panoramic mountain view

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.

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.

Tajana Charles purchased this house in 2008

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.

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.

The property was very nice and clean. Especially the kitchen had all the needed items to make breakfast, dinner etc. The terrance and the sun loungers were excellent! It was nice to start the day by drinking coffee at the terrace and enjoying the sun. The listing description was accurate, although the rooms looked a little bit bigger in the pictures. The owner provided us with excellent customer service! :) He was very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this property to my friends and family.

I recommend the other guests to visit the old town of Split and of course the beautiful Trogir. The Krka National Park was also a beautiful place to visit. The waterfalls were amazing. We used the Taxi GoGo-company. We ate in Hotel Villa Zarko about 6 times. Nice staff and good food. Great value for you money! The nearby fast food place was also good, if you didn't feel like cooking. The local turist biro wasn't very good. The workers weren't very helpful or nice. For example, one day we went there, because we wanted to get a taxi, but we didn't know the number. We went to the turist biro, and asked the lady worker to call us a taxi or give us the number so we could make the call. Her answer was: "It isn't my job to get you a taxi.." Luckily the local people are quite friendly, although they don't speak english very well.

Our overall experience about Croatia is very positive and we will return someday! :)
Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. We are happy you enjoyed the house and Croatia. It is a beautiful country. The Krka Park waterfalls as you say are highly recommended for a day trip. Swimming under the waterfalls is a magical experience. Trogir and Split are also easy day trips from the house. Sorry to hear about your experience with the Turist Biro. This is the equivalent of a tourist agent in the U.K. We would recommend for tourist advice to visit Kastela Tourist Office located inside the 15th Century castle who should be more helpful when asking for advice. They also have many leaflets and tourist information on the area in the English language along with other languages.

Description of villa was true and we were not disappointed. Well equipped, clean and very well located. We would definitely recommend.

Kastella is a perfect location. Quiet and unspoilt with lovely safe beaches, pleasant shops and bars and conveniently located between Trogir and Split which can be easily reached by bus.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review. We are happy that you enjoyed the house and found Kastela to be a perfect location. We like the fact that Kastela is unspoilt with many years of history and not swarming with tourists like Split and Trogir. Its a place to relax, enjoy a strong Croatian coffee and look at the amazing views across the ocean to Split and the island of Ciovo. The town also has everything you need if you don't have your own transport. There are 3 supermarkets, a bakery, coffee shops, bars and more. The transport service as you mentioned is also good with regular buses that will take you to Split or Trogir. The trip back to the airport is also stress free with a Taxi ride only taking around 10 Minutes.

Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again at Croatian Stone House

A very enjoyable holiday

The house was very well furnished and maintained. The air conditioning was very efficient and most welcome in the higher than usual temperatures. The view from the roof terrace over the terracotta roofscape of the old town was very picturesque, though we found it a bit hot to sit up there at lunchtime. We did not hire a car but were able to get around easily on the public transport system and it is a very short taxi ride from the airport. We would certainly recommend it.

We had a wonderful time in Kastela and we really enjoyed your house (especially the roof terrace :-)
The management agents were very helpful friendly and helpful. As we only stayed in your house for 3 days, we spent quite a lot of time in the town exploring the local sites.

Great Week In Kastela

  • Review Submitted: 28-Aug-2012

Just a note to say we had a great first week in your house in Kastela. We loved the village and the area and also had a great time in Brac and Trogir so I’m sure we’ll return before too long! Neda and Ivona were very friendly and helped us with the little problems we had but the house was very comfortable and well equipped. We didn’t hire a car in the end and used the colleague of the lady at the Turist Biro as our taxi driver for our trip to Split/Brac and the return to Trogir – very reasonable and dependable.

My wife thought it's the best equipped house we've ever stayed in, and even the coffee machine was excellent, so not much room for improvement! As you say the pine trees down to the beach are great and our girls (15 and 12) loved swimming, jumping off the jetties and finding hermit crabs.

Thanks for all your help in advance of our trip.
