Destination guide

Experience Croatia in holiday lettings

A Balkan jewel from head to toe, Croatia sparkles as the Adriatic rolls in and the Dinaric Alps loom overhead. Prepare to gasp as Dubrovnik comes into view, its Game of Thrones towers soaring straight from a blue-green bay. Prepare to sigh as the limestone peaks of Biokovo give way to the Markaska Riviera, a land of blinding-white pebble beaches, pirate coves and party towns. Islands, from yacht-peppered Hvar to pine-scented Brac dot the sea all around. Up north, Istria takes over with its olive-clad hills and Roman ruins, while Croatia holiday rentals in Zagreb mean Slavic culture and amazing museums.

Things to do

Places to go near Croatian holiday lettings

Croatia stands at a crossroads of Europe, tucked between Italy, the Slavic belt and the Balkans. That's brought everyone to its shores over the years, from Ottoman Turks to Roman emperors to Venetian settlers, imbuing it with some seriously awesome monuments and history. Check out the colossal Roman theatre in Pula, hailed as the best-preserved outside of Italy. Hit the muscular bulwarks of Lovrijenac fort in Dubrovnik, where cannons still top the walls. Or, delve into the maze of Diocletian's Palace in Split, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that covers half of the city, packed with churches and taverns and temples.


Things to do near holiday homes in Croatia

While the backcountry is a mysterious land of peaks and waterfalls – more on that later – the coast is where most Croatia holiday rentals make their home. Pads in places like Split mean countless coves with white pebbled beaches on the doorstep, or long days of hopping between promenade cafes sipping rakija to the sight of bobbing yachts. Talking of yachts, the Croatian seas are a veritable haven for sailing. You can choose a bolthole on the islands of Hvar with its 13-th century walled port or nearby Brac famed for its windsurfing, or the coastal city of Dubrovnik where you can hit the waves and explore remote islands dressed in pines.


Climate during your stay in Croatian holiday homes

Most associate Croatia holiday rentals with sun-drenched beaches and warm seas. And that's true if you choose to visit in the main season of summer, between June and August – temperatures regularly pass 30 in the daytime and there's hardly any rain. Over the Dinaric Alps, away from the coast, things are different. The continental climate there means muggy summers and snowy winters. A visit to a cosy highland cabin between October and March could be just the sort of off-the-beaten-track trip you're after, spent hiking and skiing in the hills.

Natural features

Croatia's entrancing landscapes

Croatia runs the gamut from soaring alpine peaks to sun-baked Mediterranean beaches. Most travellers will have their eye on the latter, for which the whole coast from Dubrovnik to Pula is primed – expect empty inlets and cliff-backed shores, hidden islets and uber-clear Adriatic waters. Heading inland opens up something totally different. The Krka National Park offers no less than 7 roaring waterfalls, plus historic monasteries and castles. Plitvice is dotted with resplendent lakes that glisten between pine woods. The Dinaric ranges are rocky and rugged, with wolves and bears stalking their slopes. It's a truly entrancing country.


Beach locales near Croatian holiday rentals

Croatia has lovely beaches and exotic island spots for sun and watersports. Holiday rentals can be found near places like Brač, an island with white-pebble beaches and resort areas, and Golden Horn, a white-sand beach destination with clear waters for windsurfing and boating. You could also spend the day at Lopud, a small island with white-sand beaches, cafes and gentle surf.
