The small and picturesque fishing village of Petrcane is home to Villa Gatsby, a traditional style stone villa featuring a beautiful modern decor that can accommodate up to 6 guests across three bedrooms. Situated just 40m from the glittering blue of the Adriatic and surrounded by peaceful pebble beaches, pretty-fronted shops, restaurants and taverns, you won't find a more relaxing or stylish holiday home for your family getaway. 

The interior of Villa Gatsby is bright and spacious with an open plan layout that incorporates living, kitchen and dining areas. The decor is light and fresh in shades of white and grey, with wooden flooring and royal purple and silver accents in the soft furnishings, solid, well-crafted furniture, and all of the amenities and equipment you'll need to self-cater during your stay. Villa Gatsby features WiFi and has air conditioning throughout, offering guests a practical and comfortable home from home that they'll remember and cherish forever.

Villa Gatsby's plush, luxurious style continues through into the bedrooms, of which there are two doubles and one twin room. The overwhelming theme is a fresh and inviting white, with crisp linens, opal and gold accents and plenty of wardrobe space. Here you'll enjoy homely little touches such as high-end wall decals and ornaments, frames and mirrors. The villa bathroom has a spa-like quality and is well-equipped with all the soft fluffy towels and toiletries you could need, as well as the handy addition of a washing machine.

The grounds of Villa Gatsby are just as stylish and luxurious as indoors, with a beautiful spacious wooden terrace overlooking the sea. Guests at the villa can enjoy their private pool, a spacious infield - perfect for sunbathing or playing, stylish and comfortable loungers, parasols and garden furniture, and a large bbq area. There's an adorable mini Tiki bar with a canopy and bar stools out on the terrace - the ideal shady spot to enjoy a cocktail or two, or perhaps a morning coffee, and there's private parking available for one car.

The Dalmatian village of Petrcane is located just 12km north of the popular tourist destination of Zadar. It is a 900-year-old fishing village with a small local population of less than a thousand people. The bay is surrounded by two peninsulas, Punta Radman and Punta Skala. It is one of the region's most picturesque and charming areas, with its tiny stone houses, scenic promenade, and idyllic village centre.

Many beaches are just waiting to be explored, with Beach Petrcane being the most popular. Located directly on the promenade, this elongated bay is mainly pebble, with green pine trees providing pleasant shade on hot days and the wonderfully clear waters inviting you to take a dip. After a day of total relaxation, why not stop at the beach bar before visiting the pretty harbour and then pop for a bite to eat at one of the wide range of cafes and restaurants in the area?

Petrcane is ideally located for discovering some of the best attractions of the Zadar region, including the picturesque town of Nin, and the island of Vir, an island connected by a bridge to the mainland. The old town of Zadar itself is only a short distance from the village and is famous for its many attractions, including the Roman forum. Here you'll experience a more metropolitan flavour, with restaurants, bars and cafes serving delicious local cuisine to suit everyone, as well as lots of opportunities to shop for souvenirs.

A visit to the 'Monument to the Sun' is an absolute must if you visit this part of Croatia. Created by artist Nikola Basic and located on the waterfront, the monument is a 22-metre disc representing the sun. It soaks up solar rays all day only to dazzle visitors with them in the form of coloured patterns as night falls. There are also smaller discs representing the solar system's planets, all of which radiate their shimmering glow. The adjacent art installation, 'Sea Organ', is another famous area attraction. These underwater pipes are formed by cleverly cutting steps into a section of the waterfront promenade; these underwater pipes produce musical notes when filled with water, creating a haunting harmonica effect.

Kids

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

Villa Gatsby is an ideal accommodation choice for families holidaying with children. The spacious open plan layout, choice of double or twin bedrooms, grassy, shaded infield, and a private pool all lend themselves to a memorable holiday for little ones, where they can play and swim in safety. There are no stairs to worry about, minimising trips and falls, and the wooden terrace is flat, spacious and easy to navigate. There’s no barrier around the pool, and it’s possible that the area around it could become slippery when wet, so parents will want to make sure that children are well supervised while playing in the vicinity.  

The village of Petrcane is characterised by its mild Mediterranean climate, clear waters and beautiful beaches, so it’s no wonder the area is a hit with children of all ages. One of the most popular beaches with families visiting Petrcane is Punta Radman, a predominantly pebble beach that features sandy areas, giving you the best of both worlds. You should be aware that one part of this beach belongs to the nearby Pinija Hotel, and an entrance fee is charged to all except hotel guests. Further along the coast is Nela Beach Club, an utterly admission-free pebble beach that offers a volleyball court, pirate camp, open gym and a bar. Nela is popular with older children and teens due to the facilities and activities here, and they often play rock, pop, and Latin music.

Taking a family stroll through the village itself is a lovely experience, and you’ll find a number of lively cafes, restaurants and fresh produce markets to enjoy that cater to all palates. The trails that lead from the village centre through the nearby olive fields are perfect for biking and hiking, both popular pastimes with tourists who visit this region.

The small and dreamy town of nearby Nin is well worth visiting if you are holidaying with the kids - popular with families thanks to its unique long, flat sandy beaches and the opportunity to try kayaking and windsurfing. Known as the cradle of Croatia, Nin is home to many historical sites and museums that might interest curious young minds. The 4-metre high statue of Gregory Nin is one of the town’s most famous attractions; this bishop was one of Croatia’s most influential personalities, and it is said that rubbing the toe of the bronze statue will bring good luck - it makes for an amusing photo for Instagram if nothing else!
