Villa Tranquility is located in the village of Starigrad Paklenica on the coast of the Velebit channel and near to the city of Zadar. It is said that this is the place where ‘the mountains and the sea become one, and is popular with swimmers and hikers alike for this reason. The miles of sandy beaches make this area a fantastic holiday choice for those with kids, and if it’s an activity-packed break, you’re after you’ve struck gold! Hiking and free-climbing are popular with tourists here and caving, kayaking, canoeing, and rafting. 

If relaxation and soaking in the local culture and atmosphere is more up your street, Starigrad has that too. The old part of the town is rich in archaeological finds and beautiful architecture, including the famous Villa Petar Hektorovic, the 16th-century summer house of the aforementioned Croatian poet, which has been beautifully preserved and offers a fascinating glimpse into the past. During the summer months, Starigrad Paklenica holds several ‘Fisherman’s Evenings’ - popular events held in almost all Dalmatian towns. Suppose you’re fortunate enough to be holidaying here during the festivities. In that case, you’ll be able to enjoy live music alongside delicious local specialities, including lamb and fish dishes, prosciutto, cheese, wine, bread and olive oil.

If you’re after entertainment with a more modern flavour, head into the nearby city of Zadar - one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Here you can marvel at historical monuments such as St. Donat Church and the St. Frane Church and Monastery, as well as visit the popular sea organ installation and visit the Ancient Glass Museum - before heading to one of the many trendy cosmopolitan wine bars and restaurants the city has to offer.

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

Children staying at Villa Tranquility are sure to enjoy the spacious rooms, the incredible views and the private pool - just as much as the adults! Each bedroom has double beds that can be separated to create two singles or singles that can join to create a double, making it easy for families and friendship groups to accommodate everyone's needs. Parents should be aware that there are stairs and balconies to consider if you’re holidaying with very young children, and there are no barriers or fences around the pool - so you’ll want to make sure that they’re well-supervised.

Starigrad Paklenica is a small port with a lot to offer - certainly for older children. Activities such as beach volleyball, climbing, rafting and kayaking are popular with families here, as is exploring the many caves in the area. Children of all ages will enjoy a visit to the Paklenica National Park, where there are hiking trails suitable for all ages and abilities, as well as the opportunity to try your hand at mountaineering. There are several nearby waterparks, including the popular Aquapark Starigrad Paklenica, and some good beaches. Part of the Zadar Riviera, Kulina beach is well worth heading to with the kids, offering incredible views and shallow, crystal clear waters, all overlooked by the ruins of Vetchka, a 16th-century watchtower. Like many in the region, this is a pebble beach, but it is incredibly popular with families because of the picturesque and peaceful area. Despite Kulina’s popularity, you should still be able to find a secluded spot to enjoy a picnic and a paddle!

Suppose outdoor activities and lazing on the beach aren’t your thing, head into nearby Zadar for a change of scene and to experience a more metropolitan flavour. Here you’ll find 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 a must if you’re visiting Zadar with the kids. Created by artist Nikola Basic and located on the waterfront, the monument is a 22-metre dis, representing the sun, that 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.

  • Fantastic family vacation!

    on 06/08/2021

    Villa Tranquility gave us a wonderful holiday. The hosts welcomed us warmly friendly in this great villa, which is comparable to a five star hotel. Every room very tastefully and modernly furnished. The view over the sea in the morning is unbeatable!
    Since the sea is really only separated from the villa by a street, we went before breakfast to swim. The groceries and bread were also available right across the street. In the evening there was lots of good restaurants and a nice bar with music for our grown children. The hosts, the room attendants and caretakers were available at any time, helpful and very friendly. We really enjoyed the time on the lounger by the beautiful pool and the great seating.
    We would like to thank you again for this wonderful holiday and would like to recommend Villa Tranquility.
