Villa Nica is situated in the picturesque coastal town of Zaton, known for its stunning Dalmatian architecture, gorgeous Mediterranean climate, unspoilt nature and rich cultural and historical heritage. The town is a popular destination for families with children thanks to its beautiful, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. There is a wide variety of activities that are often on offer during the summer months, such as beach volleyball, jet-skiing, pedal boats and parasailing, horse riding, banana boats and sailing, as well as plenty of available amenities; including outdoor showers, shops selling beach equipment, beach chairs and parasols for hire, and public toilets. The dense pine forest that surrounds the long stretches of beach offer some welcome shade, and there is a wide choice of cafes, snack bars and restaurants just a short walk away, where you can enjoy cold beverages and local specialities when you’re done swimming and sunning yourself. You’re bound to find something that everyone will enjoy, from traditional cuisine that includes fresh fish and meat dishes, locally-sourced veg, virgin olive oil and homemade wine, to trendy pizzerias and ice cream parlours.

Historical sites that are well worth visiting during your stay in Zaton include the 11th century Croatian Church of St Nicholas, and the tower Kastelina, which was built by the Venetians at the end of the 16th century during the defence of the Ottomans. You'll also be able to visit the remains of Liburnian ships that date from the 1st century BC, as well as Liburnian quarries, tombs and burial mounds.

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.

There are plenty of ice cream parlours, cafes and pizzerias in the town, so finding something to tempt even the youngest taste buds shouldn’t be an issue here. Zaton is located on the coast, and the beaches in the area are sandy and clean - perfect for a day out with the kids. Parasols and sun loungers can be hired in most areas, and there are plenty of kiosks selling beach must-haves like buckets, spades and inflatables. During the summer months there are often activities on the beach that the whole family can enjoy, such as banana boats and parasailing, and the surrounding pine trees offer enough shade to ensure that young skin can stay well-protected.

The area boasts several national parks in the area that children will love to explore, including Plitvice Lakes, the oldest and largest in Croatia. This beautiful natural phenomenon includes 16 terraced lakes, over 90 waterfalls and plenty of forest areas to explore. Due to their mineral content, the lakes change colour from dazzling turquoise to blue then to green, making them a real sight to behold. Krka National Park is another destination that should be on your list if you are holidaying in the area with children. Beautiful all year round, swimming is allowed here during the summer months - so be sure to bring your cozzies! - although please be aware that some of the rocky areas can get slippery, so we don’t recommend children are left without adult supervision during your visit.
