As Villa Matej is part of a small resort, amenities are within easy reach. A five-minute walk will bring you to a supermarket, a restaurant and the beach with several bars and cafés. The beach itself is pebbled and slopes gently into the beautifully clear water.

It’s generally very quiet and uncrowded here, giving you a relaxed experience. As the beach is so close, why not take a picnic down with you to enjoy a leisurely afternoon spent by the sea.

For a more excellent choice of shops and places to eat, head to the town of Omiš, which is just under a 10-minute drive away. It’s home to several supermarkets as well as a harbour with plenty of cafés, bars and restaurants.

You certainly won’t be short on options when it’s time to choose somewhere to enjoy a fresh seafood lunch! A town is an excellent place for adrenaline junkies too, with zipping lining, rafting, windsurfing and diving being just some of the activities on offer.

Omiš is also full of history and is most famous for being a favoured home to pirates during the 13th and 14th centuries. There are plenty of ancient sites to visit, such as 13th-century Mirabella Fort and the Franciscan Monastery.

Around a 30-minute drive away from the villa is the town of Makarska. It’s another fascinating, historical place with plenty of stories to tell.

There are several old churches to visit, as well as a monastery and a Baroque palace. Makarska comes alive when the sun goes down, with a buzzing bar and nightlife scene, which is mainly found down by its beautiful beach.

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.
