Vacation rentals in Dalmatia
The azure blue sea, lush green coastal forests, rugged hills and countless ancient ruins all make up the soul of Dalmatia in the south of Croatia. No wonder the region ranks high on the list of the most popular holiday destinations and offers a corresponding variety of holiday accommodations in all price ranges. You will find what you are looking for in a modern apartment or a cosy holiday apartment, especially in the large cities of Split, Zadar, Trogir, Sibenik and Dubrovnik. And if you want to combine the peace and quiet of a rural vacation rental with the proximity to cultural sights, you can book a vacation rental with pool and sun terrace in the direct vicinity of these centres.Relax on Dalmatia's dream islands
You like it a little quieter? Then a spacious villa in the hinterland is just the thing. You will find what you are looking for both in the hills on the coast, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view, and in small mountain villages such as Sinj, Otok and Imotski. Also the dreamlike island world directly before the coast offers ideal conditions for a relaxed vacation. While families are mainly attracted to Pag and Brac, nature lovers on the smaller islands of Vis, Mljet and Solta will get their money's worth.

Travelers and Activities
Already in the Roman and Greek antiquity the region known as Illyria was a cradle of culture. Go on a search for traces and discover the testimonies that have left over 2,500 years of local history behind. From the Diocletian's Palace in Split to the four Venetian fortresses of Sibenik and the Kamerlengo Castle in Trogir, history fans will find plenty to see and do. Especially rewarding is a trip to Dubrovnik, which with the Fort Lovrijenca, the monumental city walls, the Sponza Palace as well as the Katedrala Marijina Uznesenja offers some very interesting places, which among other things served as a backdrop for the HBO series "Game of Thrones". The journey into the past is rounded off by a visit to the numerous exciting museums. These include the Maritime Museum in Dubrovnik and the Archaeological Museum in Split.Active holidays in Dalmatia
The fantastic nature invites you to extensive exploration tours on foot and in the mountain bike saddle. The north of the island of Pag as well as the islands of Pasman and Brac, which have a mild climate and therefore allow extensive hiking even in summer, have proved to be particularly interesting hiking areas. On the mainland, on the other hand, you combine your tours with visits to natural attractions, as attractions such as the idyllic Krka Waterfalls and the Cavo Bisevo are easily accessible via the road network. Water lovers, on the other hand, can look forward to fantastic beaches like the Sakarun Beach on the island of Dugi Otok and the silky soft sandy beach Vela Przina on the island of Korcula. In addition, the azure blue sea invites for stand-up paddling as well as wreck diving off the coast.
Things to know
The optimal time to book a vacation rental in Dalmatia is between June and September, when the mercury climbs up to 30 degrees Celsius and you can be pampered by up to 12 hours of sunshine.

The historical city of Zadar is known as the gateway to the Dalmatian region: The city is characterized by a harmonious combination of culture and sightseeing, leisure activities and beach holidays. An absolute highlight is the lively old town complex, which is located on a peninsula, separated from the new town. A walk here feels like a journey through the different epochs of 3000 years of city history: the sight of medieval city gates, Roman buildings and modern sights resembles a visit to a museum in the open air. In addition, the beaches of Kolovare and Borik are popular with tourists and locals alike, and various restaurants and bars offer refreshing specialities.2nd trip to Split
Split is the second largest city in Croatia and situated in the heart of Dalmatia. Surrounded by the Kozjak and Mosor mountains and the Perun mountain range, an open-air museum awaits you here that is second to none. The famous Diokletain Palace was declared a UNSECO World Heritage Site in 1979 and the lively waterside promenade called Riva is considered the city's central location. The magnificent squares and buildings give the visitor an insight into the Roman epoch of the 1700-year-old city and on the popular beach Bacvice wafts the "Blue Flag".3rd Sibenik Knin
In the county Sibenik-Knin directly at the sea you can expect a varied cultural program: Historical landmarks can be admired as well as various cultural museums. In addition, the community, protected by chalk cliffs and the mountainous hinterland, represents a "treasure trove" of vineyards - taste the regional wines and taste the pure taste of Dalmatia!4th Peninsula Peljesac
On the picturesque peninsula of Peljesac there are fertile valleys with cypress forests, alpine forests and pines. In addition, much of the peninsula is covered with cultivated olive groves, vineyards, oranges, mandarins and many other fruits. Peljesac is known for its lonely bays and sandy beaches. These can only be reached by jeep or boat - the peninsula is a paradise for nature lovers!5th visit to the island of Pag
The island of Pag is again famous for its lace and bobbin lace art, for Pag cheese and for a very special roast lamb. There are many small settlements here and in the villages of Pag and Novalja there are uniquely beautiful beaches and a wide range of sports and leisure activities. While the east coast of the island appears bare and resembles a lunar landscape due to wood clearing and the influence of the bora, the west coast is rich in vegetation - here, too, there are numerous olive groves and pine forests which spray a very specific scent.
