The location is excellent for exploring Dalmatia and the Islands. It's close enough to beaches and town for those who want it but on a lovely quiet hillside where we enjoyed peace and quiet with great views of the coastline. The house is really very well equipped and looked after by Charlotte and Wanlop, who were excellent hosts, giving us peace and privacy to enjoy it but available with advice and recommendations whenever needed. Thank you Charlotte and Wanlop. We had a wonderful time.

Only 10 minutes out of Makarska so easy to access beaches, supermarkets etc. Spectacular views from the external seating areas and pool. Hosts were really helpful with great advice. Will definitely think about a return trip.
