Rustic and remote, with a huge amount of outdoor space to enjoy, Villa Bozica lies around 15km from Vrgorac, a medieval town in the south-eastern slopes of Mount Biokovo. Ideal for a smaller group seeking plenty of peace and privacy, this villa offers you a magnificent outdoor pool, large terraces and well-kept gardens.

The villa is easy to reach by car, being around 10km from the Ravca highway. You can travel here from Split Airport, which is around 100km away. In addition to the opportunity to explore the mountainous surroundings, it offers easy access to the coast, and destinations such as Tučepi, Igrane and Drašnice.

A covered dining area and barbecue make a fine place to entertain friends, with plenty of covered parking available at Villa Bozica. Sun loungers line up beside the pool, so you can lie back and enjoy the reliably sunny weather with a glass of wine.

Inside, you have a spacious kitchen with a vintage look, where you will find a large fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and many other appliances. A wood-burning stove warms the living area when needed, where rugged stone walls add to a Mediterranean ambience.

Villa Bozica is equipped with air-conditioning, TV and Wi-Fi, and offers three bedrooms. There are two doubles and a room with bunk beds, suitable for children. The bedrooms share two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath tub.

The small town of Vrgorac provides you with amenities including a supermarket and the recommended restaurant, Pilac. From Vrgorac, it’s around 35 minutes’ drive to the more developed tourist destination of Gradac, at the southern end of the Makarska Riviera. Here you have beautiful beaches, kayaking tours and waterfront cafés waiting for you, and it serves as a fine introduction to this impressive stretch of Croatian coast.

Around 30 minutes’ drive from the coast, Vrgorac is a small town in the mountains, and its location makes it something of a hidden gem. It may not be a major metropolis, but it does have a few significant claims to fame: Tin Ujević, considered Croatia’s greatest 20th-century poet was born in Vrgorac, and filmmaker and mountaineer, Stipe Božić, also hails from the town. He is famed for having climbed Mount Everest – twice!

The town is surrounded by seven forts and is now known for its vineyards where high-quality wines are produced, and its cultivation of the famous Vrgorac strawberries which are considered the best in the Dalmatian region. Be sure to try both while you’re in town.

Vrgorac has a few places to eat, including several pretty pavement cafés and restaurants, and amenities including grocery stores, banks, pharmacy and a casino. It’s a pleasant place to wander around, with the mountain backdrop always a pleasing sight.

You can drive from Vrgorac to the coastal resort of Gradac in around 40 minutes. This popular destination forms the southern tip of the extensive Makarska Riviera and, as such, offers the most stunning views of the Adriatic and golden beaches. Many attractive eateries are lined up at the water’s edge – no matter what the food is like, you will still be guaranteed an unforgettable experience.

Vrograc is located close to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, around 10 minutes’ drive away, so it’s possible to pop across to see the beautiful Kravica Waterfall, for example – the stunning scenery is well worth the 35-minute drive. Not much further in the opposite direction, the wonderful resort of Makarska should also be on your list. It’s the place to be for stylish living and Croatian culture, and you really won’t want to miss it.

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.
