Pool Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach

Perched above the sandy shores of Golubinka beach in Duće, one of the few sandy beaches you’ll find in Croatia, Villa Duce is a stunning, modern getaway. Sleeping eight guests, this sophisticated villa offers all the ingredients for an unforgettable Croatian holiday.

The villa itself offers a chic example of modern design, from the minimalist architecture to the contemporary décor you can expect style and sophistication galore. Designed around the panorama of views on offer, you can expect vast glass windows and sliding doors that wrap around the villa, drawing the sea, sky and mountains within the villa walls.

Two floors make up the villa, with social living spaces on the ground floor and four spacious bedrooms located upstairs. As you drive up, there is plenty of room to park, with a secure garage and driveway. The front door guides you straight through into an open plan entertaining space. This large room is characterised by its high ceilings, sliding glass doors and modern furnishings, knitting together to create a serene atmosphere for your stay. The white paintwork offers a blank canvas, with a statement red sofa, sleek black dining table and wooden worktops completing the aesthetic. Entirely open plan, this bright and social space accommodates the fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge as one. A laundry room and toilet complete the ground floor, with the sunny terrace expanding out from this space, creating a vast indoor-outdoor entertaining area.

Upstairs, Villa Duce boasts four spacious bedrooms. Adopting the same décor as the downstairs, each of the rooms is bright and airy, boasting large king-size beds and modern en-suites, so you can each enjoy your own privacy. Two of the rooms have bathtubs and two offer showers, so you can all enjoy your preference.

Outside, it is hard to draw any attention away from the panorama of sea views. You can enjoy hours by the poolside, relaxing on deckchairs and dining in the sun with your loved ones. With a gym, even those who prefer a more active relaxation will be happy. Taking inspiration from local ingredients, you can fire up the barbecue for a home-cooked extravaganza! Villa Duce offers something for everyone, a stylish villa in a fantastic location.

Villa Duce is located only 270 meters from the sandy beach in Duće, perfectly positioned to enjoy the very best the Dalmatian coastline has to offer! Perched on the hillside, with a panorama of stunning sea views stretching out in front, this really is an escape from the world. The only interruption from the views is the pretty array of terracotta rooftops that guide your gaze towards the blue-azure of the sea. An idyllic spot for relaxing and recharging, you can enjoy quality time with your loved ones, with complete privacy during your stay. All you need is in walking distance, with a minimarket, bakery, a restaurant and a bar all a short stroll away.

There are very few sandy beaches in Croatia, so having one a short walk from your front door is a real bonus. Popular with families, this safe, tranquil shore is perfect for a relaxing day in the sand, with calm waters where you can swim and snorkel. As the evening approaches, we highly recommend you pick one of the picturesque beach bars for a cool glass of wine or a refreshing cocktail, starting your evening off in style! Duce itself is a great location, with a plethora of restaurants, bars and shops for you to choose from.

For those who love the outdoors, a day trip to the Krka national park is highly recommended. A UNESCO world heritage site and boasts amazing sites like the Skradinski waterfalls, or Visovac Monastery, all just a 90-minute drive from the villa. The waterfalls are exceptional, with crystal-clear water cascading down rocky outcrops, forming large pools where you can take a refreshing dip! With plenty of walking paths and cycling routes, you can explore on your own or with a guide, perfect for a day trip during your holiday.

A little closer to home, Omis is the nearest town to the villa, just a 5-minute drive away. Offering a rich history, the town is a must-visit. In August Omis hosts an annual pirate festival, with re-enactments, singing and street performances making for a really fun experience for groups of all ages. Some wonderful walks are taking you around to explore the Venetian fortress and 17th-century church, as well as the stunning views that stretch out from an array of viewpoints.

Region

The Dalmatian coast is a veritable treasure trove of stunning landscapes and historic towns, and Omis, situated halfway between the famous port city of Split and the energetic town of Maksarka, is no exception. With its rich history, scenic backdrop, and a plethora of attractions, Omis stands out as a unique and captivating destination for those seeking to explore the charm of Croatia. The town's history is deeply intertwined with its dramatic geographical setting, which is dominated by the imposing Cetina River Canyon and the Mosor Mountain Range.

The old town of Omis, with its narrow cobblestone streets and stone houses, is a place where history and culture converge. It’s a charming place to explore on foot and soak up the local way of life. There are a number of historic churches that you’ll come across while exploring - the Church of St. Michael, the Church of St. Peter, and the Church of St. Rocco, which all showcase intricate architectural details and a sense of reverence. The old town is also home to an abundance of restaurants, cafes, and local shops, it’s an excellent spot to savour authentic Croatian dishes and find unique souvenirs.

One of the most prominent historical attractions in the town is the Mirabella Fortress, often called Peovica. Perched high on a rocky outcrop, this fortress was built during the 13th century and was used as a hideout by the notorious Omis pirates who terrorised the Adriatic Sea. Today, visitors can climb up the steep path to the fortress and enjoy panoramic views of the town, the coast, and the surrounding landscapes.

Omis boasts a pristine stretch of coastline with a variety of beaches, each catering to different tastes. One of the most popular is the sandy beach at the mouth of the Cetina River, offering calm waters perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Adventurous spirits may prefer the pebbly beach of Brzet, known for its perfect conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Just a short drive from Omis, there's the small village of Stanici, which is renowned for its unspoiled beaches and crystal-clear waters. It's a serene place to relax and escape the crowds often found in more touristy locations.

The Cetina River is a defining feature of Omis, and one of the most exhilarating activities here is to take a rafting excursion along its emerald waters. The river cuts through the impressive Cetina Canyon, creating a thrilling white-water rafting experience that appeals to adventure seekers and nature lovers alike. The journey offers panoramic views of the rugged cliffs, lush forests, and the charming villages that dot the landscape.

The nearby Biokovo Nature Park is an outstanding natural attraction. The Biokovo Mountain Range, part of the Dinaric Alps, offers incredible hiking opportunities, with well-marked trails leading to panoramic viewpoints where you can marvel at the Adriatic Sea and the islands scattered along the coast. The juxtaposition of the rugged mountain terrain and the azure waters is simply stunning and will leave a lasting impression.

The history, natural beauty, and cultural vitality of Omis combine to create a destination that is rich in character and charm. Whether you're seeking adventure on the Cetina River, exploring the medieval fortresses, or simply savouring the local cuisine, Omis has something to offer every traveller who ventures to this utterly enchanting corner of the Dalmatian coast.

    We loved our stay at Villa Duce. It is a beautiful home, with stunning views in a great situation. We had everything we needed and our host Tina was extremely helpful and communicative. The list of things to do before we arrived helped us plan our stay and organise things to keep our teens busy. Would strongly recommend!
