Make a holiday apartment in Kastela your home away from home

This Central Dalmatia town is a place where tourists come to find holiday accommodation as they visit the Kastela Riviera and the rest of the beautiful Dalmatian coast. It has been a place of peaceful respite since the days of the Romans and Croatian kings who came to enjoy the beautiful coastal landscape. Today visitors can still partake of Kastela’s delights, including a new marina where they can hire a vessel for a ride on the Adriatic Sea. HomeAway offers holidaymakers a variety of holiday rentals in Kastela including elegantly furnished apartments not far from the sea and lavish holiday homes with private swimming pools. Air-conditioning, ample parking and washing machines are provided in most of these holiday homes.

Things to do

-Marina: Those who’ve always dreamed of sailing the open seas on a luxury yacht can do so while holidaying in Kastela. All they need to do is visit the newly built marina there and charter the vessel of their choice.

-Beaches: Since the days of the Roman empire people have always sought quiet repose on the peaceful shores of Kastela. Sunbathing on the fine sand while enjoying the sea breeze is just what the doctor ordered for stressful city life. Visitors could take a stroll along the beaches or gaze dreamily at the vessels bobbing in the harbour as they relax.

-Trogir: Tourists lodging in Kastela holiday apartments will not want to leave the Dalmatian coast without taking a tour of the nearby town of Trogir. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of Europe’s best preserved medieval towns. Apart from exploring the city’s tiny streets which are lined with brilliant eateries, and its ancient Roman ruins, visitors must spend time on its picturesque beaches.

-Split: Also not far from Kastela is the famous city of Split. This city is built around Diocletian’s Palace which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well. Visitors will have this and other medieval sites including St. Jude’s Cathedral which was built around 305 AD to explore. After this they can soak up some rays on the beach at Bacvice. There are numerous places to eat or buy ice-cream here.

-Sports: Not only can visitors swim off the coast of Kastela, they can easily find facilities for tennis and other sports such as the local favourite, picigin. From the Kastela Marina holidaymakers can be able to launch out for sailing trips or scuba diving expeditions.

Fantastic villa and hosts

5 of 5
We were pleasantly surprised to be met by Mate Lukas, the villa owner, at Split airport. He waited for us to collect our hire car and then escorted us back to the villa, showing us the local area and pointing out good restaurants and bars as we drove past. This was over and above our expectations and greatly appreciated. Mate continued to be of great help throughout our holiday, with suggestions of where to go, but was always respectful of our privacy. The villa was wonderful. It is spacious, comfortable and maintained to a very high standard. Our children loved the pool and would have spent all day in there if they could!! The villa is very well situated - close to the sea and good restaurants. We loved the area, with lots to see and do, for all ages. Thank you for a great stay Mate and family, we hope to return soon for another great holiday!

Good place for car-free solo travellers

4 of 5
I stayed at the Blue Studio for a month on a working holiday in the winter. The space is very good for someone who may want to spend a large portion of the day time as well indoors. There is good natural light, a sea view, and the sit-out on the balcony is fantastic, I enjoyed many sunsets here. A few specifics in the winter: unlike more touristy parts of the Dalmatian coast Kastela is also a working town and set of fishing villages. I found enough restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and super markets open within walking distance (of course not all are open, but enough of them). I went around a bit in the province and can say that many places while well-sorted for holiday homes may struggle to provide services for car-free visitors as well as Kastela does in the winter. This is one of the biggest pluses if you choose this place. The studio itself: it is compact but makes good use of space to provide a wide and comfortable bed, and relaxed lounge sofa in the 'living' area. The table/desk, stools and chairs are all light, so can be pulled around to suit your mood (or depending on the intensity of the sun shining through the balcony door!). The bathroom is compact but sufficient. On the kitchen front is where it gets tricky (or tiring) after the first 2 weeks. You have to be very disciplined, patient, and efficient to cook meals in this kitchen. It is possible of course, with some creative thinking. WiFi is good. It is quiet (no construction noise or empty plots nearby, again not everywhere around is so lucky, lots of holiday homes get built or renovated in the winter). The housekeeper is on hand around the corner to assist in case of issues. The off season price which I paid (less than £300 for the month) is good value. The bus to Split takes 30 minutes and stops 2 minutes from the house, running every 20 minutes until 11pm. On the other side the airport is 15 minutes away. The Kastela villages (7 of them, this one is bang in the middle) are all wonderful, to walk through, sip a coffee at or to enjoy a run along the coast. All the locals were very friendly to the only brown-skinned person in the country :-P A tip: there is Uber in Split, and it is cheap!
