Split villa description

Villa By The Sea, Oleandra, the perfect jumping off point to all the beautiful islands, is ideally situated between the fabulous, energetic city of Split and the gorgeous, seaside town of Trogir. This unique, spacious, light-filled residence has panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea, the seven Kastela, Split, and Ciovo, with a stone stairway allowing access to the pebble beach below, where you can sunbath, swim, and sail.
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. He can also help organize excursions, cultural and recreational visits, if you so desire.
The location of the house is remote and quiet. There is a little cafe/bar, another beach, and fishing port within walking distance. It is a site for the European Coastal Airline Hydroplane. You can take a trip to Hvar and it only takes 13 minutes and it cost about 40 Euro one way. You can check their Facebook page for more information.

Recommended visits from Villa Oleadra include: Primosten (33km), Krka National Park (50 km), Kornati National Park (Archipelago), Paklenica Park (130km - a paradise for climbers and hikers), Solin/Salona (15 km), Klis (34 km) with its 7th century fortress, and Medugorje (150 km) Catholic pilgrimage. Of course, Split, Trogir, and the often overlooked Seven Kastela are highly recommended.

                      Car: Recommended

                      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.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My husband and I grew up nearby this house in Kastela. We both studied at universities in Split and in Zagreb and moved abroad to pursue our professional goals. Though we enjoy our life abroad, we have always dreamed of returning to our roots and the beautiful coast that we grew up on.

                      Why the Owner Chose Split:
                      We have always wanted to have a place by the sea that reminds us of our childhood. My husband and I grew up in Kastela, and upon seeing this house we fell in love with it immediately. It has the best location on the Dalmatian coast, close to both Split and Trogir. It is a magical place that we are blessed to have as a family retreat, and we want to share this special home with our guests. The villa is perfect for hosting events, family vacations, exploring the local culture and sites, or just for relaxing and enjoying the serenity. It truly is heaven on Earth!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Villa Oleandra is situated in one of the best locations on the Adriatic coast. The airport is conveniently close, meaning you will reach your destination quickly and without much hassle. Despite the proximity to the airport, it is a quiet haven since the flight path is never overhead. Furthermore, Villa Oleandra is located directly on the beach, therefore if you are seeking a beach-side retreat with easy access, this is a perfect choice for you.
