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.

                                                                                                    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!

                                                                                                    We’ve just returned from a week in Kaštel Kambelovac at Villa Lukas - what a great holiday. Kaštel Kambelovac is the third of 7 "kaštels", counting from East which is part of Kaštela, located on the coast of the Bay of Kaštela between Split and Trogir which are both on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites. The villa is about 15 mins drive from the airport and was every bit as good as the previous reviewers have said. Mate’s help, support and advice (see previous reviews) was excellent as ever – always there but never intrusive. We opted to use the local bus (number 37) to get out and about to Split (c.30mins) and Trogir (c.15 mins) with bus stops in both directions around 10 mins walk from Villa Lukas. The bus stop to Trogir was easy to spot but the one to Split was a painted yellow line box on the road – it threw us the first time but quickly got the hang of it. We did the usual tourist things – Spilt old town, Marjan Hill (which gives fantastic views of Split and the Bay of Kaštela), Trogir, Šibenik and the Skradinski Buk at Krka National Park – all of which were super. There is a nice walk along the front of Kaštela Bay, either side of Kaštel Kambelovac which brings you to some nice bars and café’s as well as a couple of the scene sets used in Game of Thrones. There are a couple of bakeries about 10 mins walk away in nearby Kaštel Lukšić. Like previous visitors, we went to the Baletna Skola restaurant in Kaštel Kambelovac which is about 10 mins walk away. It can get quite busy at the weekends (we went out of season and all the inside tables were booked on Friday night) but once you’ve eaten there you’ll know why its popular. The other restaurant we liked was the Maslina in Split which served up excellent wood fired pizza at a very reasonable price (service was excellent too) – it’s a bit hidden away in the centre of Split but its popular with the locals and that should tell you all you need to know. For our trip to Krka NP and Šibenik, we also used (and highly recommend) our taxi driver Antonio (+385 95 514 7525). Excellent service and advice, costing 250 Kuna per person. The weather was a nice 20 – 25 degrees which was slightly warmer than is usual for the time of year – we experienced the Bora Wind for a couple of days but it actually helped to freshen up the air. All in all, a great holiday – many, many thanks to Mate and family.

The Villa is really well equipped and its the attention to detail that make it stand out. Its so handy having a fully equipped kitchen and the luxury of a dish washer. The loction is a little quiet but there is a regular bus service to Trogir and Split with plenty of bars and restaurants. The swinmming pool and garden are great for chilling out. For those who dont mind driving, places like Omis and Markaska are only an hour away. Rino arranged our car hire through his company and did us a good deal. Thoughout our stay he was so helpful and we left feeling like we had made a new friend. I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa.
