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.

She was a very kind and helpful hostess and with google translate we got along very well and solved a small problem with a water heater. The apartment is in a great, quiet location – close to a supermarket and the city - but you have to be aware that there are steep steps leading up to it when you come from the shop or some steps and a steep road when you come back from town. We also found it sometimes hard to find a parking space for our rental car in the small road. The greatest feature of this accommodation is a fantastic roof terrace with a stunning view over the marina, the sea and islands. The furniture was older but comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped which we appreciated as we did quite a bit of cooking. However, the apartment is in need of some updating and repair. The weather was quite cold when we arrived and the big sliding terrace door didn’t close so that we had to stuff the gap with paper and rags. People should also know that the steps leading up to the bed- and bathroom in the attic are very steep. We went with older friends who would not have been able to get up there and even we found that we had to be careful getting up and down. Overall though we think this apartment is worth the money, we recommend it and would come back if we visited the area again.

We were travelling with children, including a baby and Renata was fantastically accommodating helping organising taxi transfers etc. I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Split.
