Stunning Zaton is only 10 minutes from Dubrovnik and oozes charm – the perfect location for a Croatia Villa for rent

Next summer will be here all too soon and the Croatia villas for rent are already booking up! In fact villas tend to book a year in advance. That’s certainly the case with large Croatia villas and family villas in Croatia, and especially so in Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is the jewel in Croatia’s crown, so for good reason it’s so in demand.

Many families have found that it’s much more economical to have a villa holiday in Croatia if you have  bigger group – much better value than an hotel. Villa Sophia for example sleeps 18 – 20 though it works equally well with 15 people actually. It is one of the few villas on the Dubrovnik Riviera this large and which is also in a charming village location by the sea in lovely Zaton.

If you have deep pockets, opt for a fabulous sea edge Croatian luxury villa in Zaton The amazing Villa Pugliesi is a stunning large villa with staff constantly on hand to arrange everything for you – the photographs do not do it justice.

If you are looking for a child friendly Croatia family villa, look no further than Villa Zaton, a Croatia villa with a lot of activities at the villa to keep all the family amused. It’s just a short walk down into the village.

Zaton bay with its village

Zaton is about 15 minutes’ drive from Dubrovnik Old Town and is  wonderfully picturesque and untouched holiday bay. It is ‘oldy worldly’ with little harbour and with idyllic, sea-edge restaurants, Zaton has been  holiday destination for a long time – the wealthy families of the old Dubrovnik Republic would holiday here in their summer villas.

These days, Zaton bay is still picture perfect but it has some more luxury touches – water taxis usually to and from to the old town of Dubrovnik and the new Sun Gardens Resort with its water sports, restaurants and spa are a few minutes away. This is a really beautiful piece of coast line too so if you tire of lazing by the bobbing boats in Zaton, head to pretty Stikovica Bay, or Trsteno Arboretum where Games of Thrones was recently filmed. This is a beautiful spot with a natural spring that trickles into the sea…
