Villa Lorelai enjoys a very peaceful location in the village of Grubine, six kilometres from Imotski, a small town on the northern side of the Biokovo massif in the Dalmation hinterland. Imotski boasts eleven incredible lakes, famous wines, fantastic cuisine and stunning scenery. The Imotski lakes are a breathtaking natural attraction. Imotski’s Red Lake is the deepest lake in Europe and the Blue Lake is a favourite bathing spot in the area. Its unique blue colour is spectacular. Overlooking the Blue lake is Imotski’s fortress. In summer, the fortress walls become the backdrop for music recitals and theatre performances. Swimming, hiking, walking and cycling are all popular in Imotski. The 100km Ciro biking trail from Dubrovnik to Mostar was launched in 2017. Imotski makes a great starting point and the 60km from Imotski to Mostar is nearly all downhill. Imotski boasts an excellent array of restaurants where diners enjoy delicious local cuisine and amazing local wines. In the vineyards of Imotski and the surrounding villages, you will find wonderful wines including two little-known wines Kujundzusa and Trnjak which are amazing. Other local wines are Zilavka, Vranac, Simun and Posip.

Just thirty minutes away, the beautiful Makarska Riviera stretches between Brela and Gradac.  It offers many incredible beaches, fragrant pine forests, glistening turquoise sea and lovely quiet bays. Baska Voda is a small charming village 9km north of Makarska and just south of Brela. Once a humble fishing village, Baska Voda’s beaches, pine woods and natural setting have made it very popular for seaside tourism. Brela and Baska Voda are two of the prettiest beaches on the riviera and they are the closest to the villa.

Makarska itself is built around a deep, sheltered bay with the dramatic rocky heights of Mount Biokovo as a backdrop. Makarska town enjoys an excellent nightlife and some amazing restaurants. Some typical dishes are the delicious Bikovo cheese and ‘Kastradina’ which is a stew made with dried and smoked lamb, mutton or goat meat. Makarska boasts a fabulous, palm lined promenade with cosmopolitan cafes, bars and unique boutiques. You can dine waterside around the harbour watching the luxury yachts bobbing in the water.  There are many boat trips to the magical Zlatni Rat beach in Bol on Brac Island and Jelsa on Hvar. The delightful main square of Makarska Town is overlooked by the Baroque Church of St Mark and several elegant palazzi built by wealthy local merchants. The square is full of open-air restaurants and cafes and the daily market behind the church sells fresh local produce.

The magnificent Biokovo Mountain is 36km in length, dominating the skyline of this part of Dalmatia. The Biokovo Nature Park has stunning scenery, wild horses and goats, horned owls, grey eagles, serpent eagles, the remains of old settlements, alpine plants, forests and wild flowers. At 1422 metres, Vosac is the highest point where you will enjoy spectacular views across to Makarska, the island of Brac and behind it, Hvar. The recent Skywalk Biokovo is a thrilling attraction at Ravna Vlaska, near Vosac, where you can walk along the glass-bottomed platform 1228 metres above sea level. It extends out 12 metres into the sky.
Guests staying at Villa Lorelai can easily enjoy the delights of the historic towns of Split, Omis and Trogir. The Cetina river is also fantastic for a day out. You can zipline across the river, kayak, swim, picnic or raft.

ZipLine Tucepi, just south of Makarska, is fantastic for an afternoon out with children. Young children can ride tandem with the zip line guide. The six steel cables stretch across a beautiful canyon. Flying along at high speeds in this wonderful natural countryside is so thrilling!

An hour or so away, rafting on the Cetina River is one of the most popular and most attended adventure outings in Dalmatia. Children can swim, jump off rocks, kayak and zipline at really high speeds across the canyon.
