“Trogir was a beautiful part of the world and I will definitely be visiting Croatia again – I will definitely recommend your company to anyone visiting Croatia”
Palm Tree Garden Apartment, Slatine Bay, Split Riviera
Palm Tree Garden Apartment has a superb position, right on the sea edge – just wander down the path, through the arch and out onto the white pebbly beach.
Palm Tree Garden Apartment is a great beach-side property located on Ciovo Island, 10 minutes from the historic town of Trogir between the villages of Arbanija and Slatine Bay. The villa is located close to several beaches. Real close is beach with beach bar – the Arbanije Beach Bar, and a few restaurants – Restaurant Villa Tina for example, which is very nice, and a well stocked little supermarket. There is also beautiful Plaza Beach shaded by pine trees with a Beach Bar & Restaurant right on the beach – the Restaurant Bistro Plaza. A beautiful medieval town, Trogir is vibrant and close to Split Old Town – an inspiring place to visit.
This untouched part of the coast line offers you miles and miles of walks around the Ciovo Island, small secluded beaches, fishing, snorkeling and diving. It’s a superb environment that will capture your imagination and your heart, as well as rejuvenate your soul!
There are plenty of things to do in the Split & Trogir Area like visit the Krka Waterfalls & Sibenik, Boat trip to Hvar Island & Blue Caves of Vis Island, visit the Mostar Old Town & Bridge and also the Plitvice Lakes.
The medieval town of Trogir is 10 minutes drive away where you will find a scrumptious fruit market and countless shops and restaurants. Take an evening walk through tiny streets and squares and enjoy great sea food and Italian ice cream!
This is a great beach – side property with the beach on your doorstep just wander through the arch and out onto the white pebbly beach. Lounge on the terrace or take a walk to a nearby restaurant – this is a great place to relax. The apartment has a terrace looking over the sea, perfect for lazy summer evenings with some very more-ish, local, organic wine! The apartment itself is integrated into the garden of the larger Palm Tree Villa and can be rented as part of the overall property or separately ( out of season only – please note if the main house is rented they have sole use of the swimming pool – see below) but the apartment retains its own space and privacy with its own terrace overlooking the sea.
There are two water taxi stations within walking distance that run into Trogir and also across to Split old town – from there you can hop on a ferry to Brac or Hvar or wander through the gorgeous old streets – some of the buildings date back to Roman times and there are loads of museums and galleries to enjoy as well as countless places to eat , parks to relax in and street markets and designer shops for some retail therapy – through Mid July to Mid August there is also a summer festival with lots of street theatre concerts and even the odd opera performed for everyone in the main square.
Should you not want to wander too far from your great beach- side property, There are some lovely restaurants within walking distance – Villa Tina is always a great favourite with guests huge portions at reasonable prices – or fire up the BBQ ! Tommy’s shop around the corner has a selection of basics or hop in to Trogir in the morning and at the back of the fruit market is a great butchers – and across the road is the fish market – perfect !

There is some fabulous coastline near the apartment – this location is great because you are close to the unspoilt, and more undiscovered, bays and beaches of Slatine Bay along to the end of Ciovo Island, that typify the beauty Croatia is known for. But Trogir Old Town and the busier beaches and villages of Okrug Gornji are also within easy reach. Ask us to tell you where the best places are!
“Everything about the holiday was excellent and the house was perfect. We all had a wonderful time. As for restaurants the food was quite good everywhere, but the best local restaurant was Tina’s.

“We found the villa on the internet with a little help from Denise, I had explained what we needed and the make up of our very strange group. (who have been holidaying together for 15 years or so!). Croatian Gems were excellent at responding to our numerous calls and emails for clarification and things to do. The villa was fabulous, even in May we had excellent weather and were able to take advantage of the whole area, Matko was always on had to look after our needs and we had a brilliant time on the days boat, swimming off the boat and eating fresh fish. The ferry and buses suited us fine with only the occasional need for a taxi or boat lift! Swimming straight from the villa was amazing, just knowing you could run back in for a cold drink or warm towel if cooler. The sunsets were amazing too! Trogir and Split are both wonderful places to visit, in fact we’d love to be there again now! Is the villa available in mid September or will the weather have changed do you think by then? We have elderly folk who would love it too! All the best” Natalie F
“I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had in Croatia, the villa was amazing and Matko and his partner were the perfect hosts and were extremely welcoming and helpful, from taking us food shopping and helping us translate and pack to sorting out a minibus driver for our party of 11 all weekend. Trogir was a beautiful part of the world and I will definitely be visiting Croatia again. Thanks again for all your help in organizing our trip I will definitely recommend your company to anyone visiting Croatia.” Kate 2010
“Just to let you know that we are all home after a great holiday and to thank you for sorting us all out. We would certainly recommend Croatia Gems to anyone. The car hire was excellent. We were particularly impressed with the villa. I would love a copy of your next brochure 2011 as we would love to do Hvar and Korcula.” Anne S 2010
