All rooms are bright and sunny, with French doors that open onto a private, generously proportioned balcony/terrace overlooking the sea and hillside. The backyard contains a spacious patio with a gazebo/pavilion, a summer kitchen, an open shower, a big barbeque and a stepwise layered garden with Mediterranean herbs and a swimming pool.
The patio is shaded by the wine tree where in the late September hang juicy red grapes. This is a delightful spot for enjoying the morning cappuccino, lunch or dinner. The barbecue area is stocked with firewood (a traditional stone hearth with peka - a cast-iron dome placed over coals).
The six-meters long heated swimming pool will bring most joy to your children. It contains underwater lights, hydromassage, volley net, water-polo goal, balls and air-mattresses. The swimming pool is located in the garden, lined with lavender shrubs and canopied by olive branches. It is accompanied by deck-chairs, beach umbrellas and a sun shower.
Your only task is to reach Sibenik. Then you can relax and let us arrange everything else.
If you are arriving by car, we will meet you at the Sibenik town entrance and take you to the parking lot in front of our house (free of charge) where we can look after your car during your stay in Kaprije (cars are not allowed on the island).
We will go to Kaprije by boat together and transport your luggage to the apartment. As a welcome gesture for the guests of apartments Lavender and Rustico our custom is to treat them with a lunch - grilled fish or shell-fish prepared 'à la buzara' (a traditional Dalmatian recipe with solely natural ingredients). Then we return to Sibenik, leaving you to enjoy the island. We will make sure you do not lack of anything during your stay: in case you would need something that is not sold on the island, we will buy that in Sibenik and send it to you the same day by ferry.
If you are arriving by plane or by boat to Split or Zadar, we can organize the transfer to Sibenik (airport shuttle).

Have you seen the Oscar-awarded movie 'Mediterraneo'? Would you like to spend some time on an island forgotten by the contemporary world, in an idyllic fishing village that by a miracle escaped the blessings of civilization and development of tourism? A place without motorways, cars, or anything noisy that would disturb the whisper of the sea and the song of crickets. And while you are reposing alone on your own beach, the sea-breeze brings scents of the sea and of the olives from the neighbouring olive grove…
Kaprije is a little island in Sibenik's well indented archipelago, 55 or 70 minutes by ferry from Sibenik. It is separated from Italy only by islands of Kakan, Zirje, and the crystal clear sea.
As Kaprije is located far from cities, industry or any other source of pollution, its shores are rinsed by the sea of exceptional clarity.
The island was named after the Mediterranean plant caper whose green buds are used pickled. Caper was probably abundant at the time the island was settled by the refugees from the mainland, during the Turkish invasion in the 16th and 17th century. That is the period when St.Peter's church was built. In the 14th and 15th century the island belonged to the noblemen from Sibenik.
Kaprije has only one village with one hundred residents, a post office, a first-aid station, a small supermarket and several cosy bars. A dozen of restaurants are scattered around the island, particularly appreciated by the yachtsmen
When you take an evening walk along the seafront, across the main village square where the local boys are playing football next to the older citizens playing boules, you will wish to remain here forever, far away of the cruel reality of everyday life.
Kaprije cove, naturally sheltered from all winds, starts to twinkle in the twilight, lit by the foremast lights of sailing boats arriving after a full day cruising through the neighbouring Kornati islands, anchoring here for a safe sleep. With the new sunrise over the calm morning sea they will once again cast off and silently glide into the endless blue.
Our two apartments house is located on the edge of the village, 30 meters from the beach. The house is surrounded by the garden with aromatic Mediterranean herbs, layered stepwise in 3 levels.
The top level contains a patio covered with white sea pebbles, shaded by the wine tree where in the late September hang juicy red grapes. This is a delightful spot for enjoying the morning cappuccino, lunch or dinner. By the patio you will find a summer kitchen, open shower and the barbecue area stocked with firewood (a traditional stone hearth with peka - a cast-iron dome placed over coals).
Our six-meters long swimming pool will bring most joy to your children. It contains high quality Desjoyaux water filtration system, solar water heating system, underwater lights and hydromassage. Volley net, water-polo goal, balls and air-mattresses will bring fun to adults too.
The swimming pool is located in the garden, lined with lavender shrubs and canopied by olive branches. It is accompanied by deck-chairs, beach umbrellas and a sun shower.
When the sunset, like with watercolours, paints the sky, the sea and old stone houses, while you are preparing grilled fish, oiling it with a sprig of fresh rosemary you just picked in the garden and then dipped in homemade olive oil, with a glass of good wine you will feel completely immersed in the Mediterranean way of life. Don't be surprised if your lips spontaniously start to hum 'O Sole Mio'...
Some 30 meters from our house, next to the olive groves and rosemary shrubs, you will find an array of little paved beaches with stairs for easier entry to the sea. Spend a day sunbathing alone at the beach in front of our house in absolute peace, accompanied only by the soothing sound of the sea and crickets.
In the base of the Kaprije cove, 15 minutes from our house, you will find a shallow gravel beach ideal for your children.
Another 10 minutes away, a path between ancient dry-walls of vineyards and olive groves takes you to a true gem of the Kaprije island. The Nozdra cove is a savage place for those searching for a return to the primitive, uncontaminated and profoundly Mediterranean ambient, full of colours, tastes and scents. Natural white pebbly beach and large smooth flat rocks that are perfect for comfortable sunbathing, frame the turquoise sea and create contrast of irresistible beauty. If you prefer shade, you will find it under the pine trees that grow right next to the beach.
When you get thirsty or hungry after swimming, refreshments are waiting for you in the bar or in the restaurant on the other side of the Nozdra cove. Both objects are very nice, with stone facades blended with the countryside.
If you have some explorer's spirit, you can use our small motor boat to discover more distant, pristine beaches of Kaprije and surrounding islets: the Blue Lagoon enchants with its Caribbean-blue colour...
