New Bridge - Trogir to Ciovo (no more traffic!)

We are so very happy to report that the new bridge onto to Ciovo from Trogir is now completed.  Our friends and colleagues tell us that the traffic has eased completely, who hoo…..

You can now bypass Trogir to get onto to Ciovo, this is great news especially for our guests coming to and from the airport and also for those off sightseeing further afield.

This bridge is 15 years in the making and we’ve been hearing about it every year, we are thrilled the day is finally here..

Krka Park - Pack a Lunch and Spend the Day

The wonder that is Krka waterfalls is a must see on your Croatian trip.  The good news is that Krka is only 1 hour from our self catering properties in Split.  We can recommend tours, taxis and car hire.  The best way to travel there is by car and we recommend packing a lunch, so that you can spend a full day relaxing at the falls.  They truly take your breath away and are a must see for us every time we travel over.  We’ve been doing it for 15 years!

There are two ways to enter the park, either by boat or you can take a bus to the start of the walking trail - both are brilliant and offer some beautiful sights.  The walk down is approximately 2 kilometers and is just stunning.

You can find prices and more info on the National park site here -

I’ve included a screenshot of the 2018 prices for entry to the park, taken from the Krka NP website above.

Oh and don’t forget your togs as you can take a dip in the water.

Don’t pay more for your holiday accommodation - book direct with the owner!

Nobody likes having to pay extra for their holiday.  An increasing number of apartment listing sites on the internet charge a traveler’s fee of at least 6% with some charging much more than this.

We are are urging customers to swerve the fee by booking directly with us.  Here are a few tips for finding your rental outside of the likes of AirBnB, Home Away, Owners Direct and

- Use property names and descriptions to find owners contact details elsewhere online. 

- Check the area of the property on google maps and find website details for owner.  (eg.  If you’re looking for our Penthouse Paulina if you put the keywords “Apartment Paulina” and “Okrug Gornji” into Maps our details will pop up)

- If you have booked using one of above sites then keep the owners details so if you return you can contact them direct - more than likely you’ll be offered a better rate too (we always offer a discount to customers that contact us directly)

So keep those tips in mind and if you or any of your family/friends ever want to avoid this fee you are always welcome to contact me directly to book. We always love to have a returning guest and would also like to offer a discount on any booking which you can extend to friends/family :)

As shown in the photographs, we’ve made many upgrades and improvements since we had our first guests in 2004.  ​ We continue to make annual upgrades and improvements. Year on year we have updated our properties so please check out our new website and view all our self catering apartments at

If Croatia is on your sights for the future get in touch with me, I’m always happy to help with your plans.

Wishing you all the very best for summer 2018.
