If you are a group of friends or a large, multi-generational family looking for a fantastic, spacious villa with character, charm and close proximity to a beach, then the outstanding Villa Lelia is a very good bet. This stunning villa is located on the wonderful Island of Pasman in the Zadar archipelago, separated from the Croatian mainland and the towns of Zadar and Biograd by the Pasman Channel. Villa Lelia can sleep a whopping 18 guests in 9 incredible, dreamy bedroom suites. Villa Lelia, originally built in 1812 and oozing characterful appeal, is made up of a main house and several outbuildings housing many of the idyllic bedroom suites. The buildings surround a wonderful swimming pool and various terraces. To the front of the property is a gorgeous, beautifully planted garden.

The villa is situated in the village of Tkon on Pasman. It can be reached by ferry from Biograd in just 15 minutes. Once you have arrived, you can walk to restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and stunning beaches. The nearest beach is directly in front the villa, very hard to beat.

Villa Lelia features beautiful exposed stone walls and vast brilliant white walls which look like a gallery. Certainly the huge pieces of contemporary art look perfect in their settings. Within the main house, you will find the chef’s dream of a kitchen with its sleek, shiny cupboards and excellent appliances. This is also the interior dining area with two tables and chairs for such a large group. The exposed stone walls blend perfectly with the furniture and kitchen cabinetry. The games room is another delight with a profssional billiard table and table football.

All nine bedrooms are palatial gems, all very individual and uniquely decorated. They are extravagant, opulent and incredibly spacious. Most feature exposed stone walls, huge contemporary artworks and enormous beds in the centre of the room. Each has a lavish bathroom, some of which are tucked away but others are central and very much part of the room. You will find bedroom suites with sumptuous seating arrangements, some with terrace access and most with gorgeous, panoramic views towards the small harbour and beach. You will find chandeliers, velvet day beds, vaulted ceilings and probably some of the biggest beds you have ever seen! It is very hard to choose which is the best bedroom as they are all so individual. Maybe you will choose the one with the freestanding bath in the room, maybe you will be stunned by a particular painting, or maybe an enormous walk-in shower will do it! No one could possibly be disappointed! You will all enjoy the sleep of kings in exquisite linens.

Behind the main house is the pool and a jacuzzi, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the fabulous scenes in front of you. Guests can enjoy alfresco dining with a choice of magical spots. Perhaps the one within the garden at the front of the villa with the sea view or perhaps the upper terrace looking down on the pool. You may even want to hire a private chef for several of your meals. This beautifully renovated villa is top notch, you will not regret it!

The Island of Pasman is part of the Zadar archipelago, situated off the mainland between Zadar and Sibenik. Pasman is known as the island with the largest green surface in Croatia. The rapid Pasman stream changes course every six hours and makes the sea one of the clearest in the Adriatic. There are remains of Roman architecture, stone inscriptions and coins confirming that the island was inhabited during the Roman rule in Dalmatia. Visitors can explore the primative fortifications at elevated sites in the Illyric town Gradine. Above Tkon, on the beautiful hill of Cokovac, is the Benedictine monastery of St Cosmos and Damien which dates back to 1125. In Kraj you will find a Franciscan monastery built in 1390. There are numerous sandy bays around the coastline of the island including seven between Tkon and Ugrinic. The most famous beach is Matlovac in Zdrelac and Tratica in Kraj is also very popular with families. The gastronomy of Pasman is centred around fish, locally grown vegetables, Dalmation herbs and Dalmation olive oil. Some specialities include prosciutto dried on the bura north wind, salted cheese from the Island of Pag and lamb. There are not any nightclubs on the island but there are some buzzy beach bars. If you want a nightclub then you should head for Zadar.

From Pasman, you can enjoy many day trips. You can visit the neighbouring Island of Uglijan via a bridge, one of the national parks including the Kornati National Park, the Krka waterfalls and Paklenica National Park or one of the towns along the coast. It is quick to get to Zadar, Sibenik, Trogir or Split. You may want a days hiking in the Velebit mountain range or a rafting trip on the Zrmanja River. The Nature Park Telascica and the Lake Vrana are both beautiful.

The dramatic, wild mountain range of Velebit is sensational with two national parks, the Northern Velebit National Park and the Paklenica National Park, a biosphere reserve, forests, deep canyons, caves, paths, cycle routes, botanical gardens and exciting wildlife including Balkam chamois, red deer, brown bears, wolf and lynx. In the foothills of Velebit, the Modric cave is an absolute gem. Velebit’s Church of Sv Juraj (St. George) in the heart of the town is a fantastic example of ancient Croatian architecture. Velebit is the largest, though not the highest, mountain range in Croatia, forming part of the Dinaric Alps. The popular spots are the peak of Vucjak above Zavizan, the botanical gardens and the caves.

The richly historic town of Zadar offers many attractions. Zadar’s renowned sunsets are spectacular and to celebrate them, a ‘Monument to the Sun’ was built on the edge of the waterfront. It is an all day 22 metre disc which soaks up the solar rays ready to dazzle visitors with coloured light patterns as night falls. The Sea Organ is an art installation formed by cleverly cutting steps into the promenade with underwater pipes making musical sounds.

The breathtaking Kornati Archipelago National Park boasts reefs, headlands, islands and bays. You can take boat trips to explore the national park with plenty of opportunity to swim and snorkel. The famous Krka National Park boasts its stunning Skradinksi Buk and Roski Slap waterfalls. Extending along the 73km Krka River, the park runs from the Adriatic near Sibenik inland to the mountains of the Croatian interior. It is a magical place of gorges and waterfalls, with the river gushing through. Visitors take a boat ride to explore the park. Make sure you take your swimming costumes as you can swim below the waterfalls. Visitors also pass by the magnificent Visovac monastery, located on an island in a magical setting while on the boat ride.  

Sibenik is the city of fortresses with two UNESCO heritage sites, Game of Thrones locations, beautiful beaches, an excellent dining scene and a gorgeous old town. Sibenik was first mentioned in 1066 though most of it was built during the Venetian rule between 1412 and 1797. St James Cathedral is a beautiful masterpiece of Venetian art built in the 15th century. The town’s fortresses include St John’s Fortress, Fortress Barone, St Michael’s, the oldest and most famous and the scene of many summer performances and festivals and St Nicholas. St Nicholas,  another Game of Thrones location, is reached via an official boat tour from Riva which includes a boat ride through St Anthony’s channel.

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.
