The Island of Ciovo is attached by bridge to Trogir (medieval town 2,400 years old, protected by UNESCO). The area of Ciovo and Trogir are considered by some to be one of the world’s best kept secrets. The Croatian tourist board’s slogan, "The Mediterranean as it Once Was", really rings true to this beautiful part of the world. Renting your own accommodation not only allows for savings on your holiday but also means never having to hang the "do not disturb" sign on the door. Why only rent a room when you can have the whole apartment? Define your own holiday. The apartments are 15 minutes approx from Split Airport by taxi. The village is a 10 minute walk and has numerous restaurants and pubs, butchers and bakeries etc. The beach is a 3 minute stroll away, with water sports and activities 10 minutes further along the beach. Tennis club and courts are a 3 minute walk. Hotel Villa Katarina is a 4 minute walk from our Ciovo apartments and has a very good restaurant catering all day.

With more than 1000 miles of coastline, 1185 islands, unspoilt beaches, clear blue seas, a string of ancient walled cities, Roman ruins and a climate balmy enough to nurture orange and lemon trees, it is no surprise people are starting to flock back to Croatia. You will experience Croatian hospitality everywhere, superb restaurants featuring locally caught fish and Italian-influenced cuisine accompanied by delicious local wines. The locals are very friendly and accommodating. In the past it was the haunt of Edward and Wallis Simpson, Agatha Christie, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and is now being rediscovered by current celebrities and royalty such as Brad Pitt, Princess Caroline, Prince Charles and Bernie Ecclestone who spends most summers in central Dalmatia on his yacht.
