Only a short journey from Zadar airport and easy to find with Google maps. The accomodation was very clean and well presented with nice 'arty' pieces here and there. Kitchen was well stocked with most things although it did lack an electric kettle and a conventional toaster. The lounge area was fine although there is just the one sofa which all four of us did manage to sit on in the evenings. All three bedrooms were very comfortable. The balcony space is great with a good sized table with chairs, dryer with pegs and catches the sun all day. The pool area space has sun beds and a rattan effect sofa and chairs set. We didn't use the pool as it was too cold, even for my son! Neither did we use the games room, which looked nice or the sauna. Ivan and his wife were very friendly and always around if there was a problem or you needed a question asked. We parked our car in their olive tree garden, attached to the property. It's a shame there isn't a guide book or folder of leaflets etc as we had no idea what was nearby but a simple google and trip advisor session helped. Nin is very nice and the square is only a 5 minute stroll away. Make sure you go over the bridge and walk around the 'island' as its lovely and there are loads of restaurants/cafes and bars. Queens beach is only a 10 minute walk around the harbour/lagoon and over the headland. We visited old Zadar and had a day at Krka national park, both worth it! We ran most days and found a nice place called Zaton, litterally up the road. A great place to walk and swim, although not much else was open. (October half term) This was our forst time to Croatia and we really enjoyed it. We took euros with us but they prefer you use their currency, the kuna. We'd only take kunas with us if we go again.
From the photos on the property pages, we initially thought this villa looked too good to be true...but it genuinely was as fantastic as it looked! Located on a quiet side road away from other properties, yet within easy reach of Privlaka, beaches and supermarkets.
The villa itself was perfect, brand new and with everything you could require for a luxury holiday in Croatia - the air conditioning was especially welcome during the heat wave in which we arrived! Very comfortably furnished including a fantastic pool table which was very well used during the weeks we stayed. The villa is very spacious even when fully inhabited by 8 guests as we were.
Privlaka is a great location to explore the localities of Zadar, Nin and Pag, and within easy reach of the beautiful Velebit mountains and Plitvička lakes and falls. We also visited Split easily within a day.
But I have to say we really enjoyed simply being at the villa, using the fabulous outdoor kitchen, watching the swifts and bats swooping the pool, and relaxing!
Kristina and her husband couldn’t have been more helpful or flexible- only arriving to clean or refresh things by arrangement and offered some great advice on what to see and where to go locally. A great personal yet discreet service from the owners.
This villa is highly recommended, and will no doubt be difficult to book after this first season is complete!
