A sublime property looking out over the Adriatic Sea, the exquisite Villa Vinjerac can accommodate up to 12 guests. Supremely stylish, this spacious holiday home includes a magnificent pool terrace with unbeatable ocean views.

You will be instantly impressed by the relaxing outdoor spaces of Villa Vinjerac. Around the large pool, you have hammocks and sun loungers and a shower. The uninterrupted views of the sea and Velebit mountains beyond make this area hard to leave – but it’s just a short journey into the fishing village of Vinjerac, one of the Croatian coast’s hidden gems.

You can also enjoy dining and seating areas on multiple levels and a barbecue. The interiors share the fantastic views of the Adriatic and offer lots of space. The villa features two well-equipped kitchens on two floors and a pair of living rooms. The comfortable lounge areas with modern furnishings, dining facilities and large windows are a pleasure to spend time in – and all the tech you could want, like TV and Wi-Fi is included too.

The six bedrooms are all en suite, and the bathrooms are first-rate. You have an additional three bathrooms and another highlight – the fantastic Finnish sauna cabin is a real treat and large enough for eight people. Should you feel like doing something more active, Villa Vinjerac even supplies three SUPs – stand-up paddleboards – with the sea just 200m away, it couldn’t be easier to take to the water.

A lesser-known destination in North Dalmatia, Vinjerac is a charming village that lies around 40 minutes from Zadar and a little further from Šibenik. A village centre of old ruins and a pretty fishing harbour, enjoy a fantastic mountain backdrop. It’s home to the highly-rated seafood restaurant Pece, while the natural wonders of the nearby Paklenica National Park ensure there are lots of scenic excursions to take.

The small village of Vinjerac lies on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast and serves as a good base for exploring the beautiful surrounding area and the region’s better-known cities. While not full of landmark sights, the village is pleasantly historical, and the quaint harbour offers lovely views.

Just across the water, you’ll find the Paklenica National Park, a mountaineering destination that attracts climbers from across the world. The rugged limestone landscape – a land of spectacular caves, canyons and cliffs – is ideal for adventurous hikers, and there are many established routes to explore. There are also some areas that offer cycling routes.

You won’t need to be experienced in such sports to enjoy Paklenica, with guidance available for beginners and those who just want to appreciate the stunning scenery. Passes for one day or multiple days are available if you want to visit the park. Head further north, and you can also visit the beautiful Plitvice Lakes, while the also spectacular Krka National Park is closer still, located just north of Šibenik.

Elsewhere, the region offers historic cities with top-class attractions. It’s easy enough to travel to magnificent Šibenik or Split from Vinjerac – they are around 60 and 90 minutes away, respectively. Closer still is the city of Zadar, a destination which is becoming ever-more popular.
Offering island excursions and water-sport adventures, Zadar has another interesting water-based attraction in the form of its Sea Organ – a musical experiment powered by the waves. The same architect also created the solar-powered Sun Salutation with its fantastic light show. Old town sights such as Zadar Cathedral, the Forum and the Church of St Donat also bring visitors to the city.

You are sure to want to see Šibenik too, a significant city around halfway between Zadar and Split. Its finest attraction is undoubtedly the World Heritage Site, St James’ Cathedral. This stone-built cathedral dates back to the 15th century and is a fusion of Gothic and Renaissance architectural styles. Look out for the wall of 71 grotesque faces based on citizens of the city.

Another nod to Šibenik’s past comes in the form of its four forts – St Michael’s, St John, Barone and St Nikola. St Michael’s Fort has been restored in recent years and now features an open-air theatre. You can also discover the origins of the city at this important landmark. In summer, the nearby Barone Fort doubles as an open-air wonders of the nearby Paklenica National Park ensure there are lots of scenic excursions to take.

The kids will find lots to love around Dalmatia – this beautiful part of Croatia packs in plenty of surprises.

The Aquapark Dalmatia water-park is one of the region's best family attractions, around 10 minutes drive from Šibenik city centre. Located at the Solaris beach resort, the park has a great range of slides, pools and games, as well as a special zone for the youngest children.

They will also love the city's Aquarium Terrarium. Just a couple of minutes from St James' Cathedral, this popular aquarium houses many sea creatures native to the Adriatic. If they are more into birds, there's the chance to learn falconry at the Sokolarski Centre in Dubrava. This woodland rescue centre cares for hundreds of injured birds before returning them to the wild – it's a real education and only 10 minutes from Šibenik.

It's also easy to discover the beautiful Krka National Park, a vast area of natural beauty which is not far from Šibenik. Guided tours can show you all the best parts, including spectacular waterfalls, Lake Visovac and the River Krka itself.
For beach life, head out to Plaza Banj – there's a huge array of facilities, with everything from beach volleyball and basketball to a children's playground, cafés and an open-air cinema. Barone Fort is another excellent place for kids, with its ship-shaped playground and amazing views out to sea.

The amazing Paklenica National Park is unmissable, especially when you're close to it in Vinjerac. It's a huge, mountainous area of caves, cliffs and canyons, and there's plenty of wildlife to spot along the way. Whether you venture out on foot or by bike – following the designated cycle trails – you're sure not to forget this place.

Alternatively, head into the city of Zadar and say hello to the sea and the sun. Kids will love the quirky Sea Organ, which uses the power of the waves to play its tunes, while the Sun Salutation creates colourful light shows that are bound to impress. Zadar also offers family-friendly attractions like the Museum of Illusions, and there's lots more to see in the historic Old Town – home to landmark sights and lots of great places to eat.

Look out for the Museum of Ancient Glass, which offers a glassblowing workshop and has lots of items on display for something both educational and fun. And while it's not mainly aimed at kids, Zadar's Archaeological Museum may also interest some, along with the ruins of the city's Forum.

    Many thanks for the hospitality, special thanks for the delicious cheesecake!
    Although we did not believe, but we really spent most of our time in the gorgeous villa floating in the pool.
    This location is one of our favourites, because we could enjoy the perfect view of the sea and the mountains at the same time.

  • What a wonderful, wonderful stay
