Surrounded by its own gardens of oleander, lavender, rosemary, fig and olive trees, this luxurious yet minimalist 3-bedroom villa is truly a retreat for those looking to get away from it all. The house is behind its own charming gate, with a large car port. The enormous wraparound, covered terrace, is ideal for al fresco dining or just relaxing while enjoying the sea views. There's a large living/dining room with cathedral ceilings and a fireplace, as well as a fully-equipped, modern kitchen with Bosch appliances. You will be welcomed at the villa by your host.

Villa Oleandra is ideally situated in Kastela, between Split and Trogir. Split, a stunning city full of ancient masterpieces (one of which is the former summer palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian), is an urban mecca where tourists flock to see ancient ruins and experience a vibrant nightlife and cafe culture. Trogir is a quaint and beautiful seaside town built by the ancient Greeks over two thousand years ago. Both cities are UNESCO heritage sites. The nearest shops and restaurants are in Trogir (a short 5-10 minute drive), where one can find an abundance of restaurants that offer gourmet Dalmatian cuisine. There is also a bustling open fish market and a farmers' market offering organically-grown fruits and vegetables, local cheeses, as well as various pizzas, sandwiches, and baked goods. You truly can't find a more perfect location for this villa. It's close enough to energetic towns where you can sip a leisurely espresso and people-watch, yet it is the perfect refuge if you simply want to spend your time relaxing by the sea, away from it all.
Speaking of 'getting away from it all,' a mere 10 minute walk from the house you'll find Europe's first ever hydroplane service, with a plane taking off five times throughout the day, connecting you to Jelsa, Hvar in 13 minutes for the price of a ferry from downtown Split. Also here is another beach, with two cute cafes, one with gelato that is delivered to them every morning from the best gelato place in Trogir. Enjoy a quick swim or sip a cappuccino while you wait for a hydroplane to take you to one of the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic. This amazing villa has it all.
Year Purchased: 2003
