Large villa Croatia? A Croatian villa rental is a superb way to catch up

by Saron Lease 16th April 2024

Life is ever more frenetic and, unless you pencil in that special time, another year goes by! A villa Croatia holiday gives you the freedom for everyone to be together or do their own thing. As the go-to place for many, Croatia is a top spot for holiday this year. The draw of Croatia is its pristine beauty. Specifically the untouched Mediterranean sea-edge villages that are dotted up and down the coast. With only a 2.5 hour flight from the UK and only a 50 minute boat hop to the nearest island, villas in Croatia are also easy to get to. But beware, the top villa locations book fast especially for big Croatia villas, so it pays to book well in advance.

For beach villas and coastal villa rental with plenty to see and do, we’d recommend focusing on southern Croatia (“Dalmatia”). With that in mind, choose breath-taking Dubrovnik and its sought-after nearby bays. Or perhaps hop over to beautiful Brac island villas near the beach for that slow pace of life. Equally, the Split Riviera has a myriad of pretty bays and convivial locations. Anywhere here puts you at the centre of the Dalmatian region for sightseeing and excursions.

Which villa? – Croatia has some great options for larger villas…

Location is key when looking for a large Croatia villa that will suit everyone. Consequently, you need a location where everyone can get about to do their own thing. Combine this with a villa that has a variety of bedroom configurations – double and twin rooms. Besides that, the option of extra beds (e.g. sofa beds, fold out beds) solves issues of bed sharing too.

Large Dubrovnik Villas – The ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’

Dubrovnik Villa Lumiere sleeps 14 and is in pretty Mlini Bay with everything an easy wander. Great restaurants, water sports and beautiful beaches and sea edge walks mean everyone can find their thing. Tantalising close to Dubrovnik Old Town, it’s just a 10 minute drive or 20 minute water taxi away. Additionally, with a relaxing beach holiday feel, Mlini is the perfect place to unwind and explore. For those seeking some excitement, a Zipwire is close and thrilling!

Alternatively, Large Villa Sophia in Zaton Bay has great al-fresco dining space and summer kitchen. Made up of individual suites with inside staircase, everyone has their space. It’s a wander to the beach and the villages of Mali Zaton and Veliki Zaton (little and big Zaton) where you can find scrumptious sea edge restaurants serving delicious sea food and local wine. It’s only 15 minutes rive to Dubrovnik Old Town or head up coast to the wine region of Peljesac – perfect.

Brac Villas – Croatia’s closest Island

Large Brac Villa Tika sleeps 15 and currently has a good special offer – please enquire) is across the street from a magical little beach on the edge of Sumartin Bay. Fortunately it has a scrummy local bistro and a cocktail beach bar along the lane. Close to more beaches and the little town if any of the group want to explore. Easy to please everyone in the group!

Just along the lane is uber-luxurious Villa Mila, sleeping 12. Sea edge with concierge service and heated pool, it’s an idyllic spot. Happily you can rent out next door Villa Stara and Villa More to expand capacity to 28 guests!

Or head to Villa Bougainville in cool Bol Town to sleep 16 – certainly a good alternative to Hvar Town.

In a pretty and peaceful location, right on the beach but near a super little town, Villa Nikolina in idyllic Mirca near Supetar Bay.

A budget option would be Villa Traith in elegant Sutivan. Great for cycling and water sports.

Split Villas – at the heart of Dalmatia

One of our most popular villas in Croatia is Palm Tree Villa – sleeping 12, it is situated on the beach in Slatine Bay, it is very close to Trogir Old Town and there’s a water taxi into Split Old Town. This villa is great if you have teenagers (or even if not!) – it has a games room on the beach with a pool table and table tennis table plus a table football on the terrace! Fortunately, no boredom here and plenty to keep everyone happy while everyone else relaxes… Perfect for family groups or a gang of friends. Villa Slatine is just along the lane opposite a super beach and beach bar/bistro too and sleeps 14 in total in flexible accommodation.

Another brilliantly located large family villa is Villa Talia in Vinisce Bay. New on, this is perfect for a multi-generational group. It’s within easy reach of beaches, restaurants in pretty Vinisce but also within easy striking distance of Trogir Old Town and Split itself.

Looking for a Hen Do villa near Split? Have a look at Villa Olivia, but just as good for a large family group wanting to be near the City.

Hvar Villas – Croatia’s Sunniest Island

On sought after Hvar Island, Villa Caesar is a stones throw from the buzz of Hvar Town but with all the relaxation you need for the day time. Sleeping 16 it’s a great villa for larger groups.
