VILLA BIOKOVO – DALMATIAN HINTERLAND, MAKARSKA RIVIERA
Tucked just below the Biokovo mountains, an hour’s drive from Split is the little village of Zupa, and this gorgeous little family villa – separated from the Makarska coast by the hills, but just 20 minutes drive from Baska Voda beach.
Villa Biokovo is a gorgeous little family villa in a wonderful location away from the normal tourist trail yet close enough to dip your toes in the Adriatic when you feel like it. Apart from a few of the local farmers and the odd group of hikers or mountain bikers it’s very rare to see anyone else. So it makes an excellent ‘get away’ villa if you have a stressful life .
Tucked between the Biokovo mountain range and the coast of Makarska the comfortable climate is perfect for growing the abundance of local produce you will find in the area. There are four mountain bikes available for your use at the villa ( more can be hired from Split ) and some amazing hiking trails nearby
Inside the decor is contemporary and cool, with a double bedroom on the ground floor (en-suite) a separate bathroom for guests, open plan living room and kitchen/diner. Upstairs there are a further two bedrooms, one double and a twin both en-suite ( the twin can be turned into a double bed if required). The first floor also benefits from a balcony with stunning views of the mountains.
Outside the property there is a large lawn area, terrace and pool – covered summer kitchen /eating area and BBQ , bathroom .sunbeds and hammock.
The owner has extensive vineyards (10 hectares) and should you be guests around harvest time (September) could be invited to participate! There is also homemade olive oil and an abundance of fruit and vegetables to try. The area is also well known for its wild game from rabbits to deer and wild boar.
Take a day trip to one of the most stunning locations Sveti Jure, the tallest mountain in the Biokovo range – it’s quite a hair rising drive but the views from the mountain are spectacular, Looking over Makarska, Split and across to the islands. Medjugorje (BIH) – an important place of pilgrimage for many people and prayer groups – is just 55 km away (1 hour by car). Since it’s situated in Bosnia and Hercegovinia across the border, a passport is required to visit Medjugorje.
The Makarska coast and its glorious beaches are just 20 minutes drive away when you fancy some seafood, from Makarska also you can catch the ferry across to the beautiful island of Brac.
If you are there over a weekend – visit the town of Zagvozd for it’s theatre under the stars every weekend night in July & August there is a different play/opera or concert in to enjoy with local food on sale too. Here also you will find the larger food market , Clinic and Bakery.
