Region

Cradled along the shimmering shores of the Adriatic Sea, Šibenik is an ancient coastal city that sits equidistance from the larger and busier cities of Zadar and Split. By contrast to these larger destinations, Šibenik offers a glimpse into a more local way of life. With its well-preserved medieval core, magnificent fortresses, and the ethereal beauty of Krka National Park at its doorstep, Šibenik is a destination that captivates the hearts of travellers seeking an authentic Croatian experience.

Šibenik's Old Town is home to one of Croatia’s ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the iconic Cathedral of St. James. The cathedral is a true masterpiece of Renaissance architecture, a testament to human ingenuity and craftsmanship. The intricate frieze that adorns the cathedral's exterior tells stories from the Bible and local history, leaving visitors in awe of the skill and artistry of the craftsmen who dedicated their lives to this grand project. Stepping inside, the awe-inspiring interior of the cathedral continues to leave visitors breathless with its intricate stone vaulting and a serene atmosphere.

A visit to the Šibenik City Museum reveals the rich maritime history of the region, showcasing ancient ship models, navigational instruments, and artefacts from the city's seafaring past. Šibenik's maritime heritage is also celebrated during the annual International Children's Festival, a tradition that dates back to 1958 and unites children from all over the world in a cultural exchange of art and music. Children from around the world participate in various artistic and cultural activities, making it a unique experience for young travellers.

Šibenik’s calendar comes alive with festivals and cultural events throughout the year. The Šibenik Evening of Dalmatian Chanson is a tribute to the region's musical heritage, where local and international artists perform the soulful songs of Dalmatia. For those seeking a more contemporary cultural experience, the Terraneo Music Festival brings renowned musicians and electronic music enthusiasts to the city. This eclectic blend of events ensures there's always something happening in Šibenik, from lively street performances to classical concerts in historic settings.

Just a short drive from the city, Krka National Park is a haven of cascading waterfalls, lush greenery, and crystalline rivers. The park's centrepiece is the Skradinski Buk waterfall, a stunning series of cascades that plummet into a serene pool. The park is not only a feast for the eyes but also a sanctuary for diverse wildlife, including various bird species and aquatic life. Hiking trails and wooden walkways wind through the park, allowing visitors to explore its beauty at their own pace.

A boat trip along the Krka River offers a unique perspective on the park's natural wonders and historical sites, including the Visovac Monastery, a peaceful island sanctuary that has stood for centuries.

Šibenik is a gateway to the stunning Dalmatian islands that dot the Adriatic Sea. Day trips or longer island-hopping adventures are easily arranged from the city's port. Islands like Kornati, Prvić, and Zlarin offer pristine beaches, clear waters, and the opportunity to experience the tranquility of island life. Kornati National Park, also known as the "nautical paradise," is a sailor's dream, with its rugged islands and countless coves. Charter a boat or join an organised tour to explore this unique archipelago, which is a protected natural wonder and a playground for divers and snorkelers.

Whether you're wandering the picturesque cobbled streets of the Old Town, basking in the natural splendour of Krka National Park, or savouring traditional dishes in local eateries, Šibenik promises an unforgettable journey through history and the magic of the Mediterranean.

Reviews

  • Exceptional

    on 23/08/2023

    The house was beautiful, outside spaces were great and well equipped. Nice to chill by the pool with tunes on the Bluetooth sound system. Easy communication with owner via Whatsapp and responded quickly to messages.
    Car absolutely required but we knew that when booking so all good. Just a short drive into Sibenik which is lovely and has everything you need.

  • Fantastic, highly recommended.

    on 22/08/2022

    Extremely complete and stylishly furnished villa. Lots of space, nice bathrooms, excellent beds, full kitchen. The pool is fantastic. Other amenities such as sound set, table tennis, outdoor shower, seating areas, everything checks out.

  • Positively impressed

    on 12/07/2022

    We spent two weeks in Villa Arantza and were positively impressed in all regards. The hosts were super friendly and supportive. There was a welcome package with regional products and most needed items. The villa itself is stunning, well equipped and exceptionally accessible, although, you would not note the accessibility unless you need it. Perfect integration! For those interested: Except for one ramp outside the house that was to steep to handle myself without help, I was able to use all in- and outdoor facilities myself despite being quadriplegic - that even applies to the wonderful pool that features a ramp. We travel a lot and this was by far one of the best accessibility experiences ever. We would return any time. If there were more, it would get more than 5 stars!!

  • Beautiful property offering first class facilities, especially for wheelchair disabled

    on 27/04/2022

    I will admit that we were concerned after booking that there were few reviews of the property. It was explained by the host that it was because this was the first season for letting after renovation. This was obviously the case. The host couldn't have been more accommodating: we arrived quite late in the evening and his family was there to greet us and give us a tour of the property. The property is particularly recommended for the wheelchair disabled, with all areas, inside and out, accessible despite it being built on a slope. This includes the pool, which has a gentle slope for access. The kitchen and all areas are finished to a high standard and very well equipped. Security is excellent, with an electric sliding gate
