Below are just some of our favourite picks…
1. Villa Natulia, Dalmatia
Nestled in the fabulous and quiet town of Sevid, Villa Natulia is far removed from the crowds. The villa is made up of two separate apartments, spread across three floors, so ideally this home would work a treat for families and groups. In total, the villa sleeps 10 and still, there’s enough space to roam about without treading on each other’s toes. The interiors are spacious and airy, although fairly minimal. But the true selling point is the outdoor area. Pool? Check! Gorgeous swing bed under vines? Check! A private piece of the sea? Check! And it’s the clearest water you’ll ever see at that. Just watch out for the pesky sea urchins hidden in-between the rocks.

2. Vila Zuka, Dalmatia
With over 400 olive trees on the estate and magnificent 360˚panoramic views, Villa Zuka is a beautiful retreat. The villa has buckets of charm and the interiors feel very much like a home. The towns of Trogir and Split are within a short drive, but the owner can organise cabs from A to B. The owner lives on site in a little cottage next door but they are able to move away while guests are there if asked. The outside is incredibly inviting thanks to the heated swimming pool, relaxing sun-loungers and vast gardens. The kids can run about, play with the owner’s dog Luna (big hit with everyone), while you drink your chilled glass or red or dine al-fresco under the stars.
