Live comfortably in a slice of beach front paradise at this wonderful villa.

Perfectly placed amongst the greenery of the Makarstan coastline, gently hugged by the waves of the Adriatic, lies this home. Somehow, this rustic white masterpiece blends into the surrounding nature, looking like something out of a fairy tale, just oozing warmth and welcome. Guests could easily get lost in the romance of the place especially when accompanied by such a fantastic view of the horizon.

The white theme continues throughout the home, whilst this is usually a clever tool for hotter countries, it also creates a very spacious, tranquil feel which continues throughout the home, enveloping guests in a taste of seaside Dalmatian life. The home is set across several levels, with sea views and terraces on every level. Casa Uvala has four bedrooms where seven guests can fit comfortably. The bedrooms continue with the light colours, and all feature outdoor access. This means that guests can keep their curtains open to be flooded with natural light come sunrise or, sleep under the light of the moon. It also provides a simply wonderful opportunity to wake up and stretch with the sun, or, enjoy a coffee with a book before really starting the day. Beyond the bedrooms, there are also three accompanying bathrooms.

Away from the sleeping areas, this home has three large terraces, all sea facing and really highlighting the natural beauty around. Guests can sun here, eat here, enjoy and evening tipple here or even take a quick afternoon nap here! There is even a more hidden away upper terrace, covered in vines but a lovely romantic location to enjoy the sunset with someone special.

Of course, there isn’t really a garden here but the stone steps lead down to a private beach cove, where swimming, splashing and sunning is welcome all year long.

Explore the beautiful coastline and beaches of Makarska for a truly relaxing seaside holiday.

Makarska is a port town located on the Dalmatian coast, hugged by the calm blue waves of the Adriatic on one side and the gorgeous greenery of the Mount Biokovo nature reserve on the other.

Most known for its expanse of lustrous beaches, Makarska is the perfect location for laid back holidays, great for resetting and rejuvenating away from the daily grind. The beaches across Makarska are all idyllic, picturesque beaches, whether they are sand covered or stone, many are located in peaceful private bays offering guests a really tranquil experience. Backing most of the beaches are the edges of the greenery found in the national park creating a very tropical atmosphere. Each beach has its own charms, for instance the Punta Rata is a great choice for families as the beach gently slopes into the shallows of the Adriatic. Some beaches offer complete privacy, others offer a more livelier side with paddle boat rentals, jet skiing, banana boat rides, beach bars and restaurants.

Beyond the beaches, the old towns of Makarska have a lot to visit, with open air restaurants and cafés oozing tantalising scents of local seafood flavours. There are daily markets and little shops to visit and many options for nightlife.

Away from the towns, the national park is home to Golden Eagles and Balkan Chamois, visitors are free to hike through these trails or even hop onto a mountain bike to explore.

Region

Makarska, perched between the Biokovo mountain range and the glistening waters of the Adriatic Sea, is a stunning destination where nature's grandeur takes centre stage. The imposing mountains rise dramatically behind the town, creating a striking backdrop for the entire region. With its distinct Mediterranean climate, visitors can expect warm summers and mild winters, making it an ideal year-round destination.

The Riva - the town's seafront promenade - is a focal point of the community, where locals and visitors alike gather to soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere. Lined with palm trees and a variety of cafes, restaurants, and boutiques, the Riva is the perfect place to unwind, take in the scenic views of the sea and settle into the Croatian pace of life. As the sun sets over the Adriatic, Makarska comes alive with a vibrant nightlife scene. The Riva transforms into a lively hub of entertainment, with street performers, live music, DJ sets, and a chance to mingle with locals and fellow travellers.

If you're a history enthusiast, Makarska's rich heritage and historic sites will surely pique your interest. The Church of St. Mark, built in the early 18th century, stands as a testament to the region's strong Catholic tradition. The Baroque architecture and stunning altarpieces make it a notable religious landmark.

For a deeper dive into the past, the Makarska Franciscan Monastery, founded in the 16th century, houses an impressive collection of artefacts including ancient manuscripts and artwork. The monastery's cloister and church are architectural marvels in their own right. Within the complex, the Malacological Museum showcases an extensive collection of seashells, a testament to the region's maritime heritage.

The Makarska Riviera boasts a series of blue-flag beaches and crystal-clear waters, ensuring a perfect setting for relaxation and water activities. The most famous is the Makarska Beach itself, stretching for almost 2 kilometres and offering a plethora of water sports, sunbathing spots, and beachfront cafes. While sunbathing and swimming are the primary draws, you can also indulge in snorkelling, paddle-boarding, and jet skiing to experience the vibrant underwater world of the Adriatic.

Heading north along the Makarska Riviera, you’ll come to the town of Brela, famed for its pristine beaches. One of the best, Punta Rata, is often ranked among the most beautiful beaches in the world. The crystal-clear waters and the iconic Brela Rock jutting from the sea make it a picture-perfect spot for sunbathing and swimming.

The Biokovo Nature Park, often overshadowed by the coast, offers a different but equally wonderful experience. Here, the rugged mountain terrain allows for hiking, trekking, and adventure in the heart of nature. There are several well-marked trails that lead you through lush forests, up to the highest peak of Sveti Jure (St. George), providing breathtaking panoramic views of the Adriatic and the surrounding islands.

Day trips to nearby destinations are also a great way to explore the broader region. The islands of Hvar and Brač are easily accessible by ferry and make for fantastic day excursions. Hvar is known for its beautiful old town and lavender fields, while Brač is famous for the stunning Zlatni Rat beach.

This enchanting coastal region, characterised by its stunning beaches, rugged mountains, and vibrant atmosphere, is undoubtedly a place that leaves a lasting impression. It’s a must-visit for anyone looking to explore the diversity of the Dalmatian region. Whether you're a nature lover, history buff, or simply in search of a relaxing coastal escape, Makarska offers something for every traveller.

Although there is no swimming pool at Casa Uvala, stone steps lead down to a beautiful private beach cove, where swimming and splashing will provide hours of entertainment. You are spoilt for beautiful beaches down the coast, but on Gradac beach, you will find numerous entertainment facilities such as a water park, water slide, and pedal rental service – fun for all the family!

A trip to Biokovo Nature Park is well worth a visit. The park has a variety of walking trails, all ranging in difficulty. For those more adventurous, hike up to Vosac peak, the highest peak in the area, for amazing views of the Croatian coastline and its islands– on clear days, you can even see Bosnia and Italy! For little legs, Biokovo Skywalk is approximately 30 minutes drive from the park entrance. It is a horseshoe glass platform extending 11 metres out over the cliff and offering magnificent views out to sea.

Split is sure to be rewarding too – among the must-sees are an amazing aquarium and a semi-submarine that lets you see beneath the ocean. Older teens can enjoy Segway tours, younger ones can enjoy the Magical City play zone at Poljud Stadium, and all will love what’s on offer down at Znjan Beach, with bouncy castles, arcade games and paddle boats.

  • Beautiful House

    on 12/06/2021

    Beautiful house. The small beach in front of the house is ideal for a morning refreshment after a hot night. The views from the terrace are wonderful. A truly special house that gave us a much-needed relaxing break. We are definitely coming back.

  • Definitely coming back!!

    on 18/07/2018

    This villa is surely the perfect place for a getaway! It doesn't have a pool but you don't really need one when the sea is literally in front of the villa. From the terrace, you will experience the most beautiful sunset in your life!

  • I recommend it!

    on 14/06/2018

    The villa is very very well placed really at the edge of the sea in a quiet place without crowd. Easy access to the village where you can find everything. The villa is very comfortable.

  • The location is very unique and wonderful.

    on 19/09/2017

    You are in a hidden place, you have your own beach just steps from the house. There's a big terrace under the pine trees, you can cook, drink and rest there while looking at the sea and listening to the waves. If you bring mosquito net you can even sleep outside, It's so quiet. There's a lot of outside furniture.
