If you are looking to spend your vacation facing the sea, on the quiet and piecefull place, this could be the right place for you!

Located in the shadow of pine trees and the scent of lavander, Leisure is situated on the beach shore, away from any traffic and noise. Surrounded by a 450 m² of lush Mediterranean garden and located in the south part of Ciovo, in the bay of Mavarstica.

Far away from any pollution, the seaside free standing house lies few meters from the pebble beaches and it is a ideal place for spending relaxing and recreating holidays.

Vacinity of the beach is perfect for the families with children or just the people who like to spend their day in the bathing suites. Large garden with secluded areas allows each member of a group to find an isolated spot for himself.

The house has 2 floors. On the ground floor there is a dining/living room and a large kitchen, a double room and a bathroom. On the first floor there is a large living room, two bedrooms, bathroom and terrace 20 m². The rooms on the second floor allow quiet moments even for numerous families. The kitchen is new and fully equipped. The furniture is modern and comfortable, but since the owners have the house for more than 50 years it also has a touch of antique and cosy feeling. In the dining/living room there is a sofa bed and seating for 8 people. The living room on the first floor accommodates 6 people and it has a TV, an extra bed and a breakfast table for 4 people with kitchenette. On the ground floor terrace there is a large table for 8 people, and a barbecue in the shade of pine trees.

In the evenings you can enjoy the stillness and quietness with just a gentle sound of waves and cricets, or refresh yourself before bedtime in the night swimm sourranded by flashing of planktons...

Private, quiet - but near town.

  • 5 of 5

Yes, everything was clean, well-maintained, and the info is accurate. The house is in a lovely location, easy to walk to a small town - with grocery store, pizzeria, cafes. It's easy to get to the mainland, so it has the advantages of being on an island without the disadvantages. There's a ferry to Split, or it's an easy drive. Trogir is beautiful - Split, too. Unfortunately, we had lots of rain and wind during our stay, but the house is right in front of the beach, (pebble) and you can walk easily along the coast. The roads in the settlement are tiny - beware!

We loved having the house and garden to ourselves. It's quiet, and private, and sunsets and sunrises on the patio are beautiful. Very peaceful - nicer (I think) than any place else we saw along the coast! The stone building is a little more historical than much of the new construction, but with all conveniences. And Srdjana is very nice - we would have enjoyed spending more time with her!

Dream vacation by the beach

  • 5 of 5

What we loved the most was the fact that the beach and the sea is practically beyond the stone wall at the end of the garden. We were spending the entire days in bathing suits, relaxing in the hammocks under the pine trees and enjoying the various parts of the garden. The house is just as described, perfectly clean and comfortable. Srdana couldn't have been more welcoming as a host, she waited our arrival and then she left us to enjoy the house just for ourselves. Overall, perfect vacation!

wonderful house directly situated at the sea

  • 4 of 5

the property was clean and well maintained and absolutely met our expectations also in light of the description and photos.The ownerin provided excellent customer service, we really felt very comfortable. The beach nearby is a beautiful stone beach, we liked it very much, also shops and good restaurants could be found in walking distance. We also enjoyed that the location was individual and quiet. We would recommend the property also to friends.

I have just returned from Villa Adriatic and can't stop daydreaming about lazy days looking out to sea from the sundrenched terrace, afternoons drifting in and out of sleep in the perfectly positioned shade of the hammock, or evenings watching the sunset across the boat strewn horizon...

The villa itself met all our needs, it was clean, comfortable perfectly tucked away down a winding road, but it is the outside space that made it quite so special for me. If you are looking for a place to relax and escape the world then this really is the perfect place. I visited for a week in July - following an earlier excursion up the coast for a festival - with 6 friends, all in our early 30s. I think initially Srdana (the lovely owner) was concerned that we might get bored in this quiet coastal spot but I don't think she could have been more wrong. We filled our days lazily, moving between garden and the crystal blue sea, and back again. Evenings were spent on the terrace, under the twisting grape filled , enjoying the local wine and cooking on the villa's outside bbq/oven. We only left the villa a handful of times for trips by boat to the narrow streets and laid-back squares of near-by Trogir (well worth a visit) and one blisteringly hot day in Split (a beautiful city but perhaps best saved for cooler climes).

In short I could have easily stayed here for days on end and am already looking back with nostalgia on the week.

If I had to give any tips/advice for future guests then...

1) Forget spending time in Okrug Gornji – and don't let the drive-in through this touristy line of coast disappoint you - once you get to the villa you barely need to leave.

2) You don't need a car. The walk up the hill to the supermarket is a bit of a hike - and I wouldn't recommend it with small children - but with a bit of meal coordination you can limit your trips.

3) Do buy the local wine. 5 litre cartoons of lovely light red wine (perfect for the heat), for £6 you can't really go wrong.

4) Buy a lilo. If you don't you'll spend the week coveting your friends - and their sea salt-induced tan.

5) Look out for Boris the Slovenian pilot, sporting a fetching a pair of red speedos and the owner of a small yellow speed boat. My friend propositioned him for a ride on his inflatable doughnut and swiftly made a new friend who made it his personal mission to make this the fastest doughnut ride ever.

Owner's Response: Dear Gemma! Thank you for your lovely and in-depth review. Your comments encourage me even more to continue my work with joy and enthusiasm. My goal is to make our house cozy and relaxing for my guests as much as possible, so I'm glad that a group of young people enjoyed it so much! Kind regards! Srdana

A Beautiful Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Zelic house with family - eight people in total. We found the house and the surrounding area truly relaxing and beautiful, close to the sea, Trogir, local restaurants, markets and other sights. Although we had originally intended on using the house as our base and traveling to see sights from here, we found that once we saw the house and the proximity to the sea we did not move far from here. We loved going into Ogrug to shop daily and enjoyed the bakery, restaurants/pubs easily within walking distance. The promenade directly in front of the house provided us with opportunity to walk along the beautiful seashore nightly. The owner made us feel right at home and provided us with excellent instructions and information to make our stay fabulous!

We would love to come again!

Eine sehr schöne Woche in tadelloser Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für eine Woche zu acht Gast in diesen sehr schönen Haus.

Die unmittelbare Lage direkt am Strand und dennoch sehr ruhig, macht dieses Angebot zu einem absoluten Höhepunkt.

Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist einwandfrei.

Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind zu Fuß gut zu erreichen.

Sollten wir wieder einmal in dieser Region eine Übernachtung benötigen, dann werden wir mit Sicherheit wieder hier her kommen.

Okrug Gornji and Mavarstica Bay can be reached by car, over the bridge of Trogir, on a regional road. The city of Trogir is located near the Adriatic highway which connects the south of Croatia with European countries. The international airport ''Split'' is only 3 km far from Trogir. Medieval town of Trogir is under UNESCO heritage with numerous fish restaurants, coffee bars and evening events offers a rich night life. 100 meters from the house, there is diving club. Tennis courts and other sport activities are in within a few kilometres from the house. Supermarkets, post office, ATM machine, exchange office, doctor, dentist and pharmacy are on 500 meters distance. 50 kilometres away you will find Sibenik and the National Park Krka and Kornati. The ancient towns of Split and Salona are 35 kilometres from the house. From Trogir, there are lot of boat excursions to the nearest islands and once a week a bus excursion to Dubrovnik. From Okrug Gornji and Trogir there are many quick boat connections with islands of Brac, Hvar and other near islands for one day excursions.
