If you haven’t been before, this can be a dilemma in choosing villas to rent in Croatia! The Split Riviera is one of our favourite locations for a family holiday and a great place for a villa to rent in Croatia. Because the area has so many activities and excursions for all age groups, it’s a fantastic area for families of all ages. Indeed, from small families with young children to extended family groups all sharing a large Croatia villa, it works well.
Pretty bays and beaches are plentiful and many are within walking distance, or a short drive from villas. And because it’s an easy transfer as Split Airport, it’s a pleasurable trip all round.

Pretty Croatia Beaches & Bays
Along the Dubrovnik Riviera there are a beautiful selection of houses. According to Conde Nast Traveler (2022 Readers’ Choice Awards), readers have voted Dubrovnik amongst the twelve friendliest cities in Europe so Dubrovnik villas are a winner! But, it’s worth saying that villas here don’t have to be located right by the old town. In fact, there are often more alluring locations value in nearby bays. It depends what you’re into… For example, there are Croatia villas for rent in stunning Zaton near Dubrovnik as well as the other prime bays of Mlini Bay and Cavtat Bay nearby. A Dubrovnik villa is hard to beat and Mlini Bay is one of the best locations for a villa in Croatia with pool.
Great Restaurant Scene
For some of the most sought after villas, Mlini Bay is lovely and has some of the prettiest beaches with a good selection of restaurants. Cavtat Bay, which has a picturesque old town and foodie friendly restaurant scene is also a popular and good choice. From organic, domestic ‘Konoba’s to the Michelin star restaurants, it’s hard not to be impressed by the local restaurants in the Dubrovnik area. Self-catering Croatia villas are a great way to make the most of the local food scene. Check out some of the 2022 Croatia ‘Dobri Restorani’ award winning Croatia restaurants here!
Plenty of Activities
The Dubrovnik Riviera has lots to do with boat trips to islands and of course, the incredible Dubrovnik Cable Car with wonderful views of Dubrovnik Old Town..
Split is a great area for teenagers with plenty of activities. Zadar is another area to explore from a Split or Trogir villa. The Zadar Sea Organ is a must. Additionally, there are also some well located, super villas in Croatia to rent on Peljesac Peninsula. Certainly, this area is all the more accessible now with the Peljesac Bridge in place.
