Set against the scenic Croatian countryside in the idyllic village of Lisane and just a stone’s throw away from the picturesque town of Skradin, Villa Didot is a charming, traditional-style stone five-bedroom villa that can accommodate up to 10 guests. Perfect for those searching for a family holiday home away from the more crowded tourist destinations, Villa Didot offers guests a comfortable and relaxing stay in stylish yet rustic surroundings.

The interior of this spectacular villa features a country-cottage style vibe, with lashings of beautiful exposed brickwork, solid, well-crafted wooden furniture and comfy soft furnishings. Villa Didot radiates warmth and charm from the spacious Dalmatian Tavern with a large BBQ station, the bright, well-equipped second kitchen - perfect for preparing family meals, and the games area where guests can enjoy table football billiards and darts.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are light and airy, with fresh, white decor and stunning meadow views. The villa offers guests plenty of high-quality appliances and home-comforts, including a washing machine, hairdryer, satellite TV and air conditioning throughout.

Completely fenced in for privacy and featuring a stunning courtyard and private pool, the grounds of Villa Didot are a joy to behold. There are lounge chairs and parasols on the terrace, perfect for soaking up the sun or relaxing in the shade with a good book or maybe a cocktail or two, and a small children’s play area with a trampoline.    

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The private pool at the villa doesn’t have a safety barrier or fence, so make sure that small children are well supervised.
  •  The villa is located in a beautiful rural location but is central to the major cities of Sibenik and Zadar - giving you the best of both worlds.

Villa Didot is nestled in a beautiful rural location, ideally located near the popular cosmopolitan cities of Sibenik and Zadar and close to the National park of Krka Waterfalls and Kornati Islands. The nearest town is Skradin, one of Croatia’s hidden gems, characterised by its pastel-coloured waterfront houses, vineyards and wineries. The marina is a popular stopping point for yachts in the summer and is famously Bill Gates’ ‘most favourite place in the world - and it’s no wonder; the town is perfect for a lazy stroll, stopping along the way to purchase honey, wine, fruits, nuts and olive oil from the many stalls that line the streets, before being enticed into one of the waterside restaurants or cafes.

Skradin was developed under the Roman empire in the 10th century with a rich, ancient history and is now enjoying a present-day tourist boom. The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary sits in the tiny town, dating back to the 18th century and featuring a beautiful pipe organ, and is well worth a visit while you’re in the area. So too is the Clock Tower Campanile, Skradin’s most iconic sight, and easily visible from wherever you are in the town. For a small fee, you can climb to the top and look out over the landscape - be sure to look out for the pair of 9th century stone sarcophagi at the base of the bell tower.

If you decide to not venture from the town, you’ll be pleased to know that Skradin has its beach, a lovely little stretch of pebbles along the river. The water here is crystal clear, and there are permanent umbrellas, making it the ideal place to pitch up for the day and lounge in the sun. While you’re relaxing, the kids can play at the small playground, and there are food and ice cream stalls along the beach and the casual Skradina Beach Bar, so refreshments are always on hand.

After a few hours of blissful sunbathing, why not head down to the Old Timer Museum Scardona park - just a few minutes walk from the beach. Once called the Ferdinand Budicki Exhibition and located in Zagreb, this collection of rare, mint condition, Yugoslavian antique cars have found a new home here in Skradin. They are a popular attraction in the town.

Region

The Zadar region, anchored by the vibrant city of Zadar, boasts a rich history, breathtaking natural beauty, and a cultural tapestry that dates back millennia. Situated along Croatia's stunning Dalmatian coast, and shaped by the dramatic Velebit mountain range, Zadar is a unique destination offering a captivating array of experiences.

Zadar city is known for its ancient Roman ruins, white sand beach, and rugged coastline. Take a wander through the world of the Old Town's labyrinthine streets, which are a wonder to explore, brimming with historical treasures. Make sure to stop at the Church of St. Donatus, an architectural masterpiece and a prominent example of Byzantine construction and one of the most famous pre-Romanesque churches in Croatia.

Zadar's architectural prowess isn't limited to its historical buildings; it also embraces modern art installations. The Sea Organ, designed by architect Nikola Bašić, is an ingenious creation consisting of underwater pipes and chambers that produce hauntingly beautiful sounds as the waves of the Adriatic Sea wash over it. It's a serene place to watch the sunset, often accompanied by an equally impressive light show from the nearby Greeting to the Sun installation, which comes alive with vibrant colours after dusk.

The city's waterfront promenade, dotted with cafes, bars, and restaurants, provides the perfect setting for relaxed evenings. You can pass away the hours while savouring a leisurely meal and enjoying the sea views with watch boats sailing past. Don't forget to sample the local cuisine, which includes fresh seafood, pasticada (a traditional beef stew), and the world-famous Pag cheese. Pair your meal with a glass of local wine or rakija, a strong fruit brandy, to complete the culinary experience.

The Zadar region is renowned for its proximity to a collection of stunning islands, each with its own unique character. Ugljan, often referred to as the "Green Island," is known for its lush vegetation and charming fishing villages. The island offers a serene escape from the bustle of city life, with numerous opportunities for hiking, cycling, and exploring unspoiled beaches.

Dugi Otok, or the "Long Island," is a true gem of unspoiled natural beauty. The island is known for its rugged coastline, pristine coves, and the famous Saharun Beach, with its white sands and crystalclear waters. It’s also home to Telascica Nature Park, a protected area that encompasses stunning cliffs, saltwater lakes, and a diverse range of flora and fauna.

Back on the mainland, and just a couple of hours out of the city you’ll find one of the most renowned natural attractions in Croatia, Plitvice Lakes. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the park is a land of cascading waterfalls, interconnected emerald lakes, and lush forests, with a network of well-maintained trails that guide visitors through this natural wonder. Wooden boardwalks allow you to get up close to the waterfalls, making it a family-friendly destination.

The Zadar region offers more than just natural beauty. The local markets, such as Zadar's Green Market, provide an opportunity to immerse yourself in Croatian culture. Here, you can explore stalls filled with fresh produce, local crafts, and artisanal products, experiencing the flavours and craftsmanship of the region. Zadar is also home to a variety of unique traditions and cultural festivals. Local celebrations, like the annual regatta of traditional boats or performances of 'Klapa' a cappella singing are both integral parts of the region's cultural identity.

The Zadar region is a microcosm of Croatia's diverse and enchanting way of life, with something to offer everyone that visits. It's a place where history, nature, and culture converge to create a harmonious and multifaceted destination. Whether you're hiking through national parks, swimming near waterfalls, exploring ancient cities, or savouring traditional cuisine, the Zadar region promises an unforgettable experience for all. To visit Zadar is to step into the heart of Croatia and experience its multifaceted charm.

Kids

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

Families with children will enjoy the space inside and out at Villa Didot. Having your private pool is a real plus, as is the small children’s outdoor play area. Older kids and teens will enjoy playing table football and darts during their stay, and the peaceful surroundings and fenced grounds offer peace of mind to parents who will be able to relax as the children explore and play. 

Your closest town is sleepy Skradin, and while there are no child-specific attractions here, its tiny size makes it a manageable area to visit with kids. Even hiking to the town’s fortress will only take around 10 minutes, so even young children shouldn’t have too much trouble tackling it. Little ones will enjoy watching the boats on the marina, as well as the huge swans that can be found swimming here, and the picturesque Skradin beach and playground is just minutes from the centre of town.

The whole family will enjoy taking a ferry ride to nearby Krka National Park, an area famous for the sheer number of cascades and waterfalls. Visitors flock here to swim in the natural pond underneath the park’s main attraction, the spectacular Skradinski Buk waterfall. All year round, there are activities within the park, ranging from educational talks and trails and recreational and cultural events.

Suppose you decide to visit the nearby city of Sibenik. In that case, you’ll find a more bustling and energetic atmosphere, with plenty of eateries and restaurants serving both traditional Croatian fare as well as choices such as pizza and pasta - so you should be able to find something to suit even the fussiest of eaters. Be sure to treat the kids to a visit at Aquarium-Terrarium while in the city, a small zoo and aquarium located down a narrow street in the old town area. You could easily miss it if you weren’t looking for it, but do find it if you can! Here you’ll find fish, turtles, crocodiles, snakes and reptiles, which is sure to delight the younger ones (older children or teenagers might be less than impressed), but it’s not costly, only takes about 30 minutes to get around, and can be a welcome escape from the summer heat.

Sibenik is home to two fortresses that are popular tourist destinations for families - St. Mihovil and Barone - and both are worth visiting. However, Barone Fortress (the less popular of the two) is probably your best bet for those with younger children as it’s more geared up for kids! There’s a ship-like playground and augmented reality spots for them to enjoy, and a more child-friendly environment in general, with loads of space to safely run around and explore. In contrast, the adults can enjoy a drink and the beautiful view over Sibenik. There’s a souvenir shop that stocks kid-friendly gifts they’ll love, such as fortress colouring books and toy shields and swords. There’s a cafe bar at Barone Fortress, so allow approximately an hour and a half of your day to see the fortress and partake in some refreshments at the end.
