Vacation rentals in Croatia

A vacation rental on the coast

The most popular holiday region in Croatia is the Adriatic coast from Umag and Rijeka in the north down to Dubrovnik-Neretva in the south. If you are looking for a holiday apartment, a vacation rental or a cosy apartment, you will find what you are looking for there. In Mediterranean port cities such as Pula, Split or Dubrovnik you will live in modernly furnished accommodation, often in multi-storey buildings in the immediate vicinity of the beach promenade, so that you can enjoy the view of the crystal-clear Adriatic from the balcony. A little more peace awaits you in a vacation rental above small coastal towns such as Orasac or Rogoznica, where you can relax in the private pool in the shade of pine trees.

A holiday apartment on the Croatian islands

The offer of accommodation on the numerous Croatian holiday islands such as Krk, Pag, Korcula and Cres is no less large. In the middle of the Adriatic Sea you can enjoy the unique nature just a few meters away from your accommodation on the island of Korcula, also known as "The Green Island". Endless white sandy beaches attract bathing tourists to Croatia's largest island, Krk, where you will find centrally located accommodation on the beach promenades as well as rustic country houses with spacious plots of land offering space for your whole family and your dog.

Holidays in the hinterland

The wild beauty of the hinterland is best explored from a vacation rental in the Croatian capital of Zagreb, where you can find it both in the surroundings of the university and on the banks of the Sava. On the other hand, those who want absolute peace and quiet away from the tourist hustle and bustle will settle down in a vacation rental in one of the small villages in the hinterland. Recently renovated country houses and apartments in places such as Virovitica-Podravina or Sisak-Moslavina are ideal starting points for nature lovers.

Travelers and Activities

Croatia for families

Croatia is an ideal destination for families, offering endless white sandy beaches for an extended Adriatic bathing holiday. The crystal clear water of the gently sloping beaches promises not only bathing pleasure for young and old, but also water fun for your dog thanks to the numerous lonely dog beaches. The offer is rounded off by miniature golf courses, guided sailing tours for families and numerous theme parks such as the Aquapark Istralandia, the Galvani climbing park and the miniature world in Rovinj.

Croatia for active holidaymakers

"Only where you were on foot did you really go," Goethe once said. And he is right about that, because active holidaymakers explore the coasts, hills and plains of the country best from their vacation rental with laced hiking boots. Over 50 well-developed long-distance hiking trails, such as the "Path of Health and Friendship" in Istria, will provide you with unforgettable experiences. The hidden paths in the hinterland are no less popular with mountain bikers. Water lovers, on the other hand, are attracted to the surfing areas of Ravni, Rabac and Preluc, where you can take your first steps in shallow water windsurfing and kitesurfing. Alternatively you can explore the biodiversity of the rock reefs during a dive.

Even if the invention of the tie could be attributed more to London bankers or Italian fashion designers, it was the Croats who brought the tie into the world.

Top 5 Travel Tips for Croatia

Plitvice Lakes National Park
Plitvice Lakes National Park
A side trip to Westeros

Fans of the TV series Game of Thrones know the city of Dubrovnik also as "King's Landing", because for many scenes there were scenes like the fortress Lovrijenac or the Pile-Tor godfather. In the context of special Game-of-Thrones city tours you dive down to Westeros and walk in the footsteps of the serial heroes. The "Pearl of the Adriatic", a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has much more to offer with its medieval alleys and churches as well as its quaint pubs and beaches.

The Baredine Grotto

Deep down into the womb of Mother Earth, you will visit the Baredine Grotto on the Istrian peninsula, where you can admire fascinating stalactite formations and even rare olm trees in five monumental halls. Particularly adventurous tourists try their hand at speleological climbing, a special form of cave climbing.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

The Plitvice Lakes National Park was declared the first and oldest national park in South-Eastern Europe on 8 April 1949 by the research results of the scientist Ivo Pevalek. On over 300,000 hectares of untouched nature, you will explore the deep forests, which are interspersed with gorges and dreamlike waterfalls, and together with the crystal-clear lakes and caves belong to the main attractions. A panoramic trip by electric boat over the Kozjak Lake, lined with rare orchids, is also particularly beautiful.

The nightlife of Zagreb

Croatia's capital Zagreb is a paradise for night owls and offers bars and pubs as well as a rich offer of clubs for every musical taste. The spectrum ranges from discos such as the Acquarius Club, the Boogaloo, the Saloon and the Sokol Club to the Jazz Club BP, which is just a few minutes' walk from your apartment in the centre.

Croatian cuisine

If you want to eat in the traditional Croatian way, you should visit one of the traditional taverns, the so-called Konobas, and enjoy specialties such as Purica s Mlincima (baked turkey with mazen), Octopus salad (Salara od Hobotnice) or the spicy Dalmatian fish stew Brudet. The menu is complemented by full-bodied regional wines.

Things to know

Best travel time

Dalmatia, the Adriatic coast, is protected by a mountain range and therefore has a Mediterranean climate with humid winters and hot summers of up to 30 degrees Celsius. Thanks to average maximum temperatures of at least 22 degrees Celsius and up to 12 hours of sunshine, the optimal time for a bathing holiday is between May and September. While the mild temperatures in April, October and November also make the Pannonian lowlands a good travel period for hikers, you can even put on your skis in the Dinaric Alps between December and February.

Regular events

The event year is opened in Croatia by the traditional winter carnival in January in Senj, which also attracts numerous costumed fools from Central Europe to the Adriatic Sea. In June we will continue with the Winnetou Festival, the Sensual Days and the Salsa Festival. A special highlight for young party tourists is the European Spring Break, which turns Umag into a madhouse. Other highlights include the Biograd Boat Show, the Truffle Festival in Livade and Croatia's largest medieval market, Rabska Fjera.
