It's located about 30 mins walk from the middle of Starigrad. There are small supermarkets within 10 minutes. It is very quiet, no roads or bars within earshot. The garden runs in terraces down to the little jetty. There is also a tiny gravel beach. Lots of deck chairs for use. The highlight is the bar next to the sea which Mirko runs as a self-service bar - just write down what you use and settle up at the end. Mirko would join us most evenings (football World Cup was on). The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed and friendly. I would highly recommend as a holiday destination for a couple or young/small family.

We spent most of our evenings outside on the terrasse. You can use a big outdoor fireplace for your bbq. For the trekking lovers, the Paklenica National Park is 5 minutes away. And if you want to travel further away, the freeway is 15 minutes driving time. The owners were very kind! A very good address in Croatia !
