This villa is perfect for a peaceful getaway, though within 10 minutes of a small town (Benkovac) that has a number of good restaurants. Sopot was a bit too rustic. Pizzeria Milonga was amazing (medium pizzas are just fine - the jumbo ones are HUGE!), but our favourite was Konoba Niko which was the friendliest and had the best food. The villa is fairly new, and Goran, the owner, met us on arrival. He also got us some provisions as we didnt actually get there until around 11.30pm. The pool is refreshing;y cold and the gardens are well maintained, helped by the use of artificial grass. The kitchen area is small, but we didnt really cook much, and the bedrooms are neat, tidy and air conditioned. The villa has all cons including dishwasher, washing machine, vacuum, microwave, toastie maker, coffee maker etc. Zadar is about a 45 minute drive away, as are the beaches at Nin (though dont go to Croatia for beaches!) Our favourite spot was Zrmanja (Put Food House Zrmanja into Google maps). Go early to experience some of the smaller waterfalls and river swimming (watch out for snakes - though not poisonous). We could not be too ambitious as we had a 2 year old with us. However, there was no food apart from ice cream available before 12! Overall, the villa was fantastic, Goran ensured that we had everything that we needed, and I highly recommend this accommodation.
WOW! What a beautiful area! The accommodation was just perfect for our family of four and set in an ideal location for exploring the surrounding area. Extremly clean & tidy, well proportioned with great views across Zaton village. Odessa and her daughter couldn't have been more helpful, providing invaluable local knowledge which enabled us to visit a somewhere different everyday.
A car is a must as the village is fairly isolated but within a 15 minute drive you can visit some stunning beaches and towns.
I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation, as well as the Tiramasu made by Odessa.
