If you look for a taste of real Croatia, you will find it at the utterly charming Villa Bonjo. This wonderful, quaint gem is located in stunning countryside in Zezevika, deep in the hinterland between Omis and Makarska. With fabulous countryside and mountain views, you will enjoy absolute privacy in a stunning setting. The villa boasts an extensive botanical garden with more than 400 varieties of stunning plants. It also enjoys a sensational swimming pool with massage and a counter-current swimming programme, a wonderful children’s playground and a choice of enchanting spots for alfresco dining. You will enjoy a delightful sense of being away from it all’ though you can pop in the car and visit breathtaking Dalmatian beaches and the alluring towns of Omis and Makarska. With 2 bedrooms and 2 day beds in the living space, Villa Bonjo can sleep up to 6 guests though you may prefer to stick to the 4 of you. 

Zezevika is very quiet and peaceful, boasting a beautiful natural and unspoiled environment. Within the Biokovo Natural Park, the only sounds you are likely to hear are the birds. The Biokovo Mountain and park are just perfect for those that love the outdoors and enjoying sensational views. The nearest beaches are Brela and Baska Voda. The uniqueness of Brela lies in its calmness, and everyone is incredibly relaxed with no disturbing sounds, no hurry, just simple beauty. Baska Voda is a delightful resort with a pretty promenade lined with restaurants and shops and a stunning beach.

Time stands still at Villa Bonjo. The villa offers a unique charm with olde world ambience. Decorations and furniture from a time gone by blend with ancient beams and exposed stonework, creating a warm and inviting space. You will enjoy a very comfortable stay with all modern comforts. The living room creates feelings of nostalgia. The set up is unusual, with two-day beds decorated with pretty cushions facing a lovely feature fireplace. The delightful arched windows fill the room with light. The living room leads through to the dining room with its country dining table and chairs and stairs leading to the first floor. A fully fitted kitchen allows the chef to prepare a feast that can be eaten inside or out. Also downstairs is a twin bedroom with lovely views of the pool and garden and an attractive, modernised family bathroom.

The stairs are decorated with pretty tiles and lead to a lovely gallery where you can lounge on the sofa, pick up your holiday, read, or watch some television. There is a further family bathroom with a shower and a bath with massage and the second bedroom. This enjoys a double bed and another fabulous arched window with superb garden views. Though this villa offers the charm of days gone by, the artwork is a real mix of antique and modern work. You will find lovely colour pops brightening the walls, blending beautifully with the rich, wooden floors and furniture.

The outside social areas and gardens are where this unique villa comes into its own. May and June are probably the best time to visit to see the garden totally in bloom though there are colour and interest all year round. Set on and around rocky terrain, this garden is very special. The private 32 sqm swimming pool has been cleverly built with tiled and decked surrounds. The pool offers a heating and cooling system, a geyser, massage and a counter-current swimming programme. It is even more beautiful when illuminated at night. It is surrounded by loungers and cosy chairs as well as stunning, mature planting. Next to the pool is a very attractive pond full of fish and turtles. Your children will love feeding them! There is a very pleasing outdoor kitchen with alfresco dining and a further alfresco dining area closer to the villa. The surround music system is also perfect for relaxing outdoors and enjoying your favourite tunes. Children will be delighted with the playground with a trampoline, wooden house, swings, slides, climbing apparatus and a bridge. Three mountain bikes are also provided so that you can explore this wonderful neighbourhood.

Villa Bonjo is located in the wonderful, natural, rural Biokovo Natural Park at Zezevika. You will relax and enjoy stunning mountain and countryside views in complete privacy. The garden of Villa Bonjo and its pool is so wonderful you will find it hard to leave! The Dalmatian coastline is roughly half an hour away, the closest beaches being at Brela. There is more than 7km of stunning coastline, much of it lined by trees. 

Just down the coast towards Makarska is the delightful, historical village of Baska Voda. It is small and peaceful with a port and a popular beach. Once a humble fishing village, its beach, pine woods and lovely setting have made it a favourite with families. Numerous souvenir shops, friendly cafes and cosy restaurants line the pretty promenade, filled with the sound of music and laughter. Close by, and you can visit the lovely villages of Bast and Topici, known for their artisanal cheese, prosciutto and bread. You can also take an easy walk along to Promajna and the little fisherman’s village of Bratus.

Croatia boasts a fascinating history which is clearly evident when visiting the historic towns of Split and Omis. The beautiful buildings in Split look as though they have just emerged from a fantasy novel. The town combines honeycombs of these intricate historical buildings with a cosmopolitan, palm-lined promenade offering tourists a fabulous experience. The atmospheric, narrow streets are brimming with dramatic monuments, charming restaurants, cafes, bars and a good variety of shops.

Omis is known as the City of Pirates, situated at the mouth of the Cetina River. Omis is home to many churches, the 13th century Fortress Mirabella and the 15th-century Fortress Starigrad, excellent shops and a renowned selection of gourmet restaurants serving fresh, locally caught fish and speciality smoked ham. In summer, the Klapa Festival is a wonderful spectacle with capella singing in churches and squares in the old town.

For an action-packed adventure, you can head to the Cetina River. The amazing calcareous canyon is ideal for canyoning, with its cliff face reaching up to 180 metres and a warren of tunnels, waterfalls, and lakes. Extreme canyoning with experienced instructors and professional alpine gear involves descending down the Gubavica Waterfall. You can also challenge yourselves on the incredible zipline that crosses the canyon 150 metres off the ground. For something more sedate, you can paddle down the pretty river in canoes or kayaks, enjoying the breathtaking natural scenery and perhaps a picnic by the side of the river. Just north of the village of Kucice, you can ride in giant inflatable doughnuts and descend down the small river rapids. Starting at Pensici and finishing at Radmanove Mlinice, you can have a day to remember family white water rafting. You can also soar high above the river and town from Imber on a paragliding trip.

Villa Bonjo is a wonderful pick for a family holiday. The villa offers the most spectacular garden where children can play in the playground, feed the fish and turtles and enjoy the excellent swimming pool. They will also love the barbecues that can be prepared in the outdoor kitchen. The area is absolutely wonderful and Villa Bonjo provides three mountain bikes so that you can enjoy it. There are also fantastic hiking paths on the mountain and nature park. 

Within half an hour you can be on one of the stunning beaches. Brela and Baska Voda are excellent and there are plenty more, either towards Omis or along the Makarska Riviera. Markarska is very popular for its ice-cream parlours, beaches, harbour and the Makarska Observatory where children can observe the clear skies and planets through the telescope. There are special steps for small children. Usually there are clear skies and you can see Mars, Saturn and even the moon! Boat trips can be taken from Makarska’s harbour to the islands.

Split and has a wealth of activities for children. It boasts a maze of streets in the Old Town full of interest buildings, some of which will remind them of Harry Potter or Game of Thrones.  They will also enjoy running along the beautiful promenade looking at the yachts bobbing in the marina. Marjan Hill offers promenades, nature paths, beautiful vistas, playgrounds, bird and rare plant watching and the tiny Split zoo. There is a little tourist train from the Split National Theatre to visit many of the local attractions. Split’s Magic City is an indoor playroom, ideal if you have a wet day.

The Cetina River is not only incredibly beautiful and perfect for walking or picnics, it is also a thrilling playground. Children can swim, rock climb, jump off rocks into emerald pools, raft, kayak, ride on inflatables and zipline. Older children can try their hand at canyoning or paragliding. The entertainment is non-stop with kayaks, inflatables, family white water rafts and lots more. You might even have to go twice!

For more zipline fun you can head to ZipLine Tucepi, just south of Makarska. It is fantastic for an afternoon out with children and can easily be combined with a beach trip. Young children can ride tandem with the zip line guide. The 6 steel cables stretch across the beautiful canyon. Flying along at high speeds in this wonderful natural countryside is so thrilling, if a little scary!

The sensational Plitvice Lakes National Park was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. The park’s sixteen stunning lakes are inter-connected by a series of stunning waterfalls. Visitors enjoy jumping into the fresh water, standing under waterfalls, the stunning scenery and hiking.
