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.

One of the best villas we have ever stayed in. Simply perfect.

5 of 5
A truly exceptional villa with the most amazing views. But Villa Ivana is so much more. My family has never felt so welcome or so well looked after on a holiday. Ivana, who owns the villa, is the perfect host and she is so helpful in organising everything you could possibly want. From taxis to restaurant reservations, from boat charters to our own private chef on our last evening - Ivana will organise everything and this makes the whole experience so much easier. The village of Mlini and the beach are 15 minutes walk and offer plenty of bars and restaurants (Just ask Ivana for recommendations !) . The ferry into Dubrovnik old town also makes visiting this amazing and beautiful place hassle free. Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing Villa. We will be back !!

Peaceful, private hideaway with great views

4 of 5
A peaceful and private spot to unwind and relax, with amazing views across the sea and the changing skies! Space enough outside to spend the whole day without moving, but smaller inside than we imagined (while the double bedroom room is fine, the twin singles are a little cosy and really only suitable only for children). Since we hardly spent anytime indoors it didn't matter! Great access to the busy Dalmatian coast, from which House Olivia is the perfect tranquil hideaway for a couple! Many thanks to the kind owners, Marijo & Nera, who were very welcoming and attentive.
