Fantastic holiday home for a big family group
We loved staying at Frane's holiday home- 5 adults and 4 children aged 3 to 11. It's in two separate and air conditioned apartments (necessary in the 37 degree heat wave) but with lots of outdoor spaces, the wonderful pool, and a semi-outdoor kitchen. Frane was really welcoming and did everything he could to make our stay as great as possible.
It was steps from a great beach (with a bar and ice creams), and a Tommy's supermarket.
We (half of the group) didn't have a car and had hoped to get Slatine's only taxi from the ferry port but this didn't work for us so it was quite a hot walk up the hill! But Frane kindly gave us a lift from to Trogir on our last day with our bags to avoid the same- thank you. We didn't need a car when we were there- too much relaxing to do! It was also possible to get the bus to Trogir. Walking to Slatine was also fine without luggage!
Great location, fantastic host, wonderful property. Thanks!
We had SUCH a happy week at Villa Demer.
Many many thanks to Frane, who was very friendly and helpful, from the minute we booked to the minute we left. A thoroughly nice chap & a thoughtful host.
Villa Demer is really well designed, particularly the garden. Lots of shady places. Nice big table and super-handy outdoor kitchen.
The pool is wonderful.
The whole place is immaculately clean, inside and out.
The location couldn't have been better for us:
- only 15 minutes taxi ride from the airport (thanks to the new bridge connecting Ciovo to the mainland)
- beach (& bar) just one minute walk away (cross the road & you're there)
- a couple of minutes walk to the nearest Tommy's (Croatian grocery store)
We really liked the friendly beach bar & had several happy evenings there. The kids played air hockey and boules, or played in the trees & on the beach, while the adults relaxed with a drink. Pizza and seafood, good prices.
We also enjoyed walking round the coast to the heart of Slatine, where we had a couple of good meals by the harbour, and also got the boat to Trogir for a really lovely evening out (taxi back to the villa very reasonable price).
The road is not good for walking to Slatine harbour (no pavement), but there are plenty of buses. Or do as we did and walk along the beach and up onto a rough track (and a final steep walk). It's not far, & is a fun walk with good views and a couple of nice quiet swimming spots.
We can't wait to return.
Our family of 9 have just spent a very happy week staying at this lovely villa and would agree with everything that has been said in previous reviews. In addition, the owner not only provided helpful advice during the week but from the initial booking he was happy to communicate by email and answer any questions that we had.
The pool, with inflatables and balls, was a highlight for the children, as was our visit to the Aquapark which is situated next to the harbour in Slatine. Children and adults need to swim out to the inflatable platform but life jackets are provided for children if needed.
This villa is of a high standard - clean, well equipped and close to local amenities. Our family would highly recommend it.
This property has everything you need. It is clean, well equipped and the outside kitchen was so useful. There is plenty of outside space, whether you want sun or shade, to be together or to have some peace and quiet. From the veranda you get a lovely view across the sea to Split, with the mountains beyond.
The bedrooms are comfortable and have plenty of storage. The air conditioning was very welcome. Although it's in the living room it cools the bedrooms if you leave the doors slightly open.
The villa is just across the road from the beach. The beach cafe wasn't open when we were there as it was too early in the season (last week in May/first week in June). There are several good restaurants within a 20 min walk in either direction of the villa. Walk into Slatine and you can get the ferry to Split or Trogir. There is also a bus stop almost opposite the villa with buses running all along the coast. There is a small supermarket just a few hundred yards from the villa which stocked everything we needed.
Frane and his family were lovely and so considerate. During our stay Frane kept in touch by email to see if everything was ok, and to arrange linen changes and pool cleaning to fit in with us.
I would definitely stay here again.
Perfect spot for family or friends!
The villa was everything that was mentioned in the ad. Villa was in a quiet neighborhood (at least on Easter) but still few minutes drive from the islands center. Clean, affordable, well-equipped, beautiful, tranguil and whit a stunning sun rise that you can admire from the villa.
We recommend trying the fishmarkets kalamaris and mackerels by grilling them in the Villas outdoor grill! Heavenly! Or just wandering the beach which is practically next to the door.
Villas owner Frane was very hospitable and reachable when needed.
Thank you again Frane so much for making our holiday possible and being so nice to us!

Frane Grubisic purchased this Villa in 1969
Why Frane Grubisic chose Slatine
House was originaly build in 1969. by my grandfather and completely reconstructed in 2012. by my father. So, this is family legacy and we are all together taking care of it. In my oppinion house is positioned in perfect location. It is located at the northern side of the island, so it provides lots of sun, but also enough shades for the one who just prefere laying down and reading books. Located somewhere between UNESCO-s most beautiful town island in the world named Trogir; UNESCO-s town museum with a palace from Roman emperor Diocletian named Split; Airport of Split with lots of international flights; small fishing village Slatine, which is good starting location for most of your daily trips. One of the best beaches on the island is just across the street.
What makes this Villa unique
During the reconstruction we tried to keep old Dalmatian style of building as much as possible. As you can see we can proudly say we made it. It is combination of old and modern. Dalmatian stone was digged mostly on a land around the house and the missing one was brought from the quarry nearbly. Also we stayed in tradition and put green doors and windows like it was normal in 19th and 20th century. Around the house there are lot of Mediterannean flora, like olive trees, lavander, rosemary and laurel.
