Home from home by the sea

5 of 5
We loved staying in Frane's comfortable, well-equipped apartment in Stobrec. It's a short walk down steps to a warm, azure sea for swimming and sunbathing, while the nearby main beach down a gentle hill to Stobrec has a wide shallow bay where we enjoyed learning to paddle-board. There are plenty of great value restaurants nearby - we especially recommend the Epetium. A slight disappointment that there were no soft-ice-cream shops in Stobrec, which is one of the things we look forward to in Croatia - but at least we found some in Split. Stobrec's a nice size for walking around, and there are regular buses to Split. On a hot day, it was nice to walk by the river towards the hills. Frane was the best of hosts, answering questions beforehand, transporting us to and from Split airport, organising a day-trip to Brac on his dad's boat, and generally friendly if we ever needed anything - and his English is excellent. Definitely recommended!

The Appartment is ideal for 2 and the location could not be better. Anđelka and her husband are very helpful and informative giving great advice on where to visit and eat.
