The Best Croatia Holiday Villas for Families to Rent Around Split

by Saron Lease 18th January 2023

Croatian villa holidays are awesome in the Split region and you will no doubt find a family friendly Croatia holidays villa here. This part of Croatia is brimming with interesting places, activities and excursions as well so as far as a family villa holiday in Croatia goes, it a place that ticks all boxes usually for all age groups.

Why is Split a Great Location for a Croatia Holidays Villa?

Split old town is a fabulous place to explore but don’t spend too long there!  From your Croatia holidays villa, the national parks Plitvice Lakes and Krka Waterfalls are on your doorstep, so sightseeing-wise you’re spoiled for choice. You’re also at the gateway to the islands so hopping on a boat to explore is a must. This is the way to explore what Croatia is all about!

Stunning scenery and somewhere for everyone, head for the main little beach town of Okrug Gornji. Find great family beaches and inflatables in the sea, or get the best of both worlds at Slatine Bay.  Slatine’s just 5 minutes drive from  Trogir old town but more chilled out and near beautiful unspoilt beaches running to the end of Ciovo Island. Okrug and Slatine are both easy to reach with frequent water taxis from Trogir and Split old town.

Further up the coast is the pretty town of Marina with its bobbing boats and holiday atmosphere, or just a few minute’s drive from Marina, immerse yourself in the stunning scenery of Sevid. Of course you can also take an array of boat trips to Dalmatian Islands from Split and Trogir – venture to Hvar Island and the exciting Blue Caves of Vis… Split and Trogir area villas are in a great location to suit all interests and find family villas.

Some of the Best Croatia Villas to Rent Around Split


Palm Tree Villa

Palm Tree Villa – This is definitely one of our favourite villas to rent in Croatia – we love it. As beach villas in Croatia go, it’s got everything. It’s about 20 minutes’ transfer from Split airport, right on the sea edge. A gorgeous garden, Jacuzzi, pool plus  kayaks and games room on the beach make this a great Croatia holidays villa. The shop’s  within walking distance having a good selection of fresh food, bread, BBQ food, wine etc. You’re also within walking distance of café bars and restaurants. It’s a super multi-generation villa with things to do for everyone.

It’s also close to Trogir Old Town which is gorgeous. This is our favourite stretch of the island from Slatine Bay to Arbanija. The beaches are not so busy and with a water taxi connection on Arbanija beach to Trogir and Slatine to Split it’s the ideal location. There’s also a bus stop outside the shop. There is also beautiful coastline and beaches on the other side at Slatine Bay. The Concierge service can help organise everything from a special restaurant table, an island boat trip or a visit the stunning Krka Waterfalls. Concierge Services in Split & Trogir.
