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.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Fanny, a lovely local woman who lives next door and looks after you during your stay for anything you need and comes to clean and change all bedding and towels once a week. We hired a vehicle, parked up and stepped out of the car a few feet from the sea! After a hefty 50m walk from shore to apartment ;), we unpacked and were off swimming. The apartment is spacious, clean, modern and has everything you'll need for a relaxing time in the beautiful croatia. It's simple and has lots of useful kitchen utensils and, after we've stayed, some citronella candles, handmade authentic fishing rods, toilet rolls, shampoo and conditioner and a great wine recommendation! It has a good zircon system but we didn't need it too often as it stays pretty cool in there anyway. Nice spacious fridge with freezer compartment. Cant complain really, everything was as described and functioned perfectly for what we needed. Great book collection i might add :) One of the biggest bonuses for us was the lovely outdoor bbq. A great big stone bbq area which we collected sticks and cooked fresh fish on. The area outside has seats and a table and deck chairs and a great view if the surrounding mountains. I guess the other major plus has to be the incredibly close proximity to the sea, shop, church, gift shop, restaurant and bars! There is also a wonderful breeze most days coming off the Adriatic sea which is perfect for wind surfing! Theres plenty places providing lessons and/or equipment to have a go - its quite the surfing hot spot early July/August. Great service Great property Great location Definitely would recommend, in fact have done already! If you're looking for a relaxing, easy, simple yet plush seaside holiday, look no further! It really is a beautiful spot and croatia is a great place to explore!! ENJOY

What a find, the name of the apartment jumped out at us it looked perfect for our needs and we arranged a booking right away. From there in everything slotted in seamlessly, "Home and Away" and the owners (Ryan and Mihila Pownell) were so helpful. They arranged for a taxi pickup from the airport (and return) and Andreo (the property manager) was waiting for us on arrival, whereby he showed us around and explained where everything was and how the bits and bobs worked, he was so helpful and will arrange anything for you. The apartment is very well equipped (with everything you could possibly need), very clean and comfortable with good air conditioning. Then, it was into the holiday proper, we had a fantastic week. The weather was perfect, sunny, hot (up to 35c some days) and the bonus of fantastic views from the terrace. It was lovely to return to the apartment after a day out and relax in the jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine and watch the boats and liners come and go. We recommend a trip across the bay to Cavtat (very pretty place), Lokrum island and other boat trips. Dubrovnik Old Town was beautiful and we spent many hours exploring the many narrow streets, shops and restaurants.....and, the place practically fizzes and comes alive at night. The apartment is just a pleasant 15 minute walk from the town and port and if you are concerned about lots of steps up to the apartment, don't worry. It's just two short flights of about 12 or so steps, easy for most people. We don't normally return to the same holiday place as we like to try other countries etc, however, this apartment (and location) is one that we would certainly consider returning to.....there is still more we would like to see and do in beautiful Dubrovnik. Top marks.
