Zoom in on Croatia: Best Croatia family villa holiday spots on the Split Riviera – Arbanija and Slatine Bay
by Saron Lease, Croatia Gems Company Founder & Director, 21st May 2022,
The Split Riviera is easy to get to with good flights from the UK and Europe and makes a great base for family summer holidays to Croatia – the area close to Trogir is the best place for a villa holiday with many pretty little bays and beaches and lots to visit nearby
Saron Lease of Croatia Gems gives the lowdown on what the Split Riviera has to offer…
Arbanija and Slatine Bay
These areas are located on well-connected little Ciovo Island which is linked to the mainland by two bridges making access to the stunning UNESCO World Heritage sites of Trogir Old Town and Split Old Town and transfers from the airport really easy. Water taxis to the two towns from the harbours at Arbanija and Slatine are plentiful making sight-seeing and trips to the lovely old town restaurants, so very convenient. The views over to the Split mainland are stunning, and the beaches scallop all along the Ciovo coastline, interspersed by beach bars, cafes and restaurants. Arbanija and Slatine are well served with convenience stores selling fresh bread, fruit and meat, plus of course that all-important beer and wine for you to sip by the pool!
Where to Stay?
We’d recommend the lovely Palm Tree Villa at Arbanija, with its enviable location on the beach and within an easy walk to a variety of restaurants and café bars. Great for a family or group holiday.
If you need a smaller villa have a look a sea edge Villa Cinquento 5, midway between Palm Tree Villa and Slatine. 4 double bedrooms, heated pool, use of well-equipped gym 24/7 and boat mooring. Or for a larger group or two families holidaying together one of the large Cinquento villas have 6 double bedrooms arranged as 2 x 3-bedroom apartments. All of the 5 villas have great locations on the beach, private pool, a shared gym, boat mooring, walking distance to food shopping and restaurants, plus easy access to lovely Trogir and Split old towns.
