Make a holiday rental apartment or villa on the Dalmatian Mainland your home away from home

Dalmatia is the Adriatic region, mainly in Croatia, but also engulfing the Island of Rab which belongs to Montenegro. Stretching from Dubrovnik in the South up to Zadar in the North, Dalmatia is a varied yet very slender stretch of land. The Dalmatian Coast is a sailing and diving haven, whilst the Dalmatian Islands are brimming with culture and special monuments. The Dalmatian Mainland is both an activity sport hub and the home to the two largest and most endearing cities in Croatia.

Things to do on holiday on the Dalmatian Mainland

Taking a holiday on the Dalmatian Mainland in Dalmatian accommodation is ideal for sports lovers looking to recuperate through adventure. The charming atmosphere of the Dalmatian Mainland makes it impossible not to relax, yet the turbulent rivers and dramatic landscape which cross the region lend themselves perfectly to white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning and free climbing and the coastal towns are Europe’s newest destination for big game fishing for Red Tuna, Swordfish and sharks.

The natural beauty of the Dalmatian Mainland, consisting of cliffs, groves, karst, beaches and stunning hidden beaches means that walking, cycling or touring in a rental car in Dalmatia are hugely rewarding and relaxing experiences, especially if you take the time to visit a variety of the string of small villages which mark the coastline. There are many sights of huge cultural importance to be found from Dalmatian accommodation, including the town of Omis which sits in the shadow of the huge fortress which shares its name and the UNESCO listed Diocletian Palace.

Places to go on holiday on the Dalmatian Mainland

Dubrovnik offers a little of everything for holidaymakers, which has resulted in the city becoming one of the most celebrated holiday destinations on the Adriatic, with both a compact UNESCO accredited mediaeval centre and a beautiful range of white pebble beaches leading down to the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea.

Split’s primary attraction is the astonishing Diocletian Palace, but the city has a huge amount to offer anyone lucky enough to have access to a Dalmatian holiday house here. Culture is rich in Split, with a wealth of museums, galleries, restaurants and folk traditions, which still live on very strongly in the city.

Weather on the Dalmatian Mainland

Average temperatures on the Dalmatian Mainland range from 25˚C in July to around 9˚C in winter, meaning that there is never a bad time to take self catering Dalmatian accommodation.

Everything we could have asked for was there and available and was spotlessly clean. Ana met us as we arrived in the local village and took as to the property and showed us around and how everything worked and was available as a contact throughout our stay. The owners (who live next door) were really friendly and made kind gifts of fresh fruit and ham and even went out of their way to see us on the day we came home to wish us all a safe journey (7am). The property has plenty of space and for our family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers this was ideal With the private pool, games room, and cycles there was always plenty for everyone to do and the 2 minute walk to a dedicated deck area for the sea was brilliant. The local village is within 15 mins walk (or quicker bike ride), easy to manage day or night and is well serviced with local shop, restaurants and bar. Ate in each of the restaurants while we stayed here and would recommend all of them and they cater for all tastes. Only about 30 min drive from Split airport and within an hour of Split and also the National Park. Brilliant, and Thanks to Ana and her family for being welcoming and helpful throughout.

The house itself is modern and airy with stunning views of both the sea and the mountains behind. The pool is large and the outdoor dining/cooking facilities second to none. Only word of caution - a car probably needed or be prepared to take a taxi - the villa is set up on a hill - a long way from the old town. Overall experience fantastic with the owner and his family extremely welcoming and helpful.

The apartment and amenities were of a very high standard. Pool a real bonus, especially after walking up the steps to the apartment. The outside area and furniture added to the the luxury of the apartment. The view was sensational. We would certainly recommend it.
