Pool Modern Ideal for Kids

The stunning 5-bedroom Villa Mariella is located on the Croatian island of Prvic, close to the coastal towns of Vodice and Šibenik. It enjoys beautiful views of the bay at Prvic Luka, on the southern edge of the island, and is less than 1km from the mainland, ensuring you can easily explore these great towns too.

Villa Mariella features a variety of terraces on two levels, as well as an enticing private swimming pool. There is a dining area on the upper terrace overlooking the pool, and where sun loungers are available too. The surrounding Mediterranean gardens add even more charm to the property.

The peaceful location is enhanced further by the fact that the island is car-free, and is usually only home to a few hundred people. Despite this small population, it has the facilities you will be looking for, including a grocery shop, post office and a handful of restaurants, many looking out over the water.

There is also a daily market offering fresh fish and vegetables.

Large windows give the interior both fine views and a light, airy feel. You have a contemporary lounge with ample seating and TV, and a dining area and kitchen form part of the same open-plan space. All you need, including an electric oven, microwave and coffee machine, is provided. The five bedrooms exude the same chic style, and each one has its own gorgeous bathroom and a balcony.

The wonderful Dalmatian island of Prvic is a real get-away-from-it-all destination, with just two villages in an area just over 3km wide. A ferry service connects it to both Vodice and Šibenik, with the port around 10 minutes’ walk from the villa. In Šibenik, explore the medieval centre, St James’ Cathedral and St Michael’s Fortress, and in Vodice, the marina, excellent beaches and great nightlife and restaurants. Both towns are also within easy reach of the breathtaking Krka National Park.

On Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, the town of Vodice is popular with visitors and provides plenty to entertain them. Excellent beaches, bars and restaurants, nightlife at the Hacienda Club and Hookah Bar, and annual summer music festivals showcasing regional and international talents mean there’s something for all tastes.

Another of Vodice’s advantages is its proximity to the Krka National Park, where the famous waterfalls are the big attraction. The park is little more than 20 minutes’ drive from the town, and certainly a must-see when you’re in the area.

The Kornati National Park is a little different, covering 89 islands off the coast of Vodice, with regular tours available.

Around 14km from Vodice is the larger town of Šibenik, with some noteworthy historic sights. The best known, the elaborate St James’ Cathedral, holds World Heritage Site status and was constructed entirely from stone sourced from nearby islands such as Brač and Korčula. Worth a visit too are the Mediterranean Monastery Gardens, a fun aquarium and the Šibenik City Museum. In summer, the town hosts some great festivals, including the International Children’s Festival, which brings music, dance, children’s theatre and film to Šibenik.

Šibenik lies roughly halfway between Split and Zadar, both of which are just over an hour’s drive away. Split, Croatia’s second city, is the home of the majestic Diocletian’s Palace, enchanting squares and a glamorous waterfront.

Meanwhile, Zadar offers imaginative attractions like the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation, hosts the atmospheric Full Moon Festival each July, and contemporary theatre-fest Zadar Dreams each August.

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.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There is plenty for the youngest of the family to enjoy at Villa Mariella, not least the beautiful pool with views to match. The whole house is well equipped, and also sorts of activities can be arranged too, from windsurfing to kayaking and scuba-diving. The island of Prvic is just a lovely place to hang out, so why not go for a wander together and see what you find?

Over on the mainland, Šibenik is both historic and lively, especially in summer when various festivals come to town, including the renowned International Children’s Festival, and there are also good options for shopping. There’s great dining in Vodice with pizzas and fresh seafood, and for a fairly small town it goes big on entertainment – beach parties and superclub Hacienda keep things interesting from early evening until late, while summer’s Vodice Fest fills the sky with fireworks and the streets with music.
