Dalmatia villa holidays

A holiday in Dalmatia really gives you the chance to experience the Mediterranean as it once was. The area’s array of stunning beaches, dramatic mountains, idyllic islands and beautiful national parks are still undiscovered by many tourists, so make sure you get there before everyone else! UNESCO world heritage sites such as Dubrovnik, Split and Trogir are rich in history and architecture (as well as a thriving cafe culture), whilst you will also find traditional rural villages where time has stood still. A great choice of cuisine, using delicious local produce, means you never have to go far to find a superb meal. Wherever you go, the local people will offer a wonderful warm welcome into this fascinating region.

About Dalmatia

Local cuisine in Dalmatia

If you love food, Dalmatia is an ideal choice of destination! Seafood is the dish of the day on the coast, with delicious white fish and shellfish caught fresh each morning from the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. That same evening, the fish is usually being served to diners in local restaurants. Within inland areas, popular dishes often include meats such as local prosciutto. These dishes are well-accompanied by the range of great local wines available – both red and white. Dalmatia boasts an abundance of excellent restaurants serving local dishes, ranging from tiny local taverns and bistros, to fine dining establishments.

Outdoor pursuits in Dalmatia

Dalmatia is packed with stunning natural beauty from over 300 islands offshore to the dramatic mountains inland. There is a wealth of national parks to explore offering many great opportunities for exploring on foot or by bicycle. The island of Hvar offers beautiful scenery covered in lavender, rosemary and heather, whilst stunning Brac offers spellbinding coastline – both perfect for exploring via ferry from the mainland. There are a great number of boat trips available from local ports and harbours, offering a peaceful and relaxing way to explore the best of this stunning coastline as you glide across the sparkling waters of the Adriatic Sea.

On the beach in Dalmatia

The coastline of Dalmatia is simply beautiful, with countless pebble or sandy beaches backed by pine trees, peaceful bays and crystal clear waters. Many of these beaches have been awarded a blue flag in recognition of their quality. To the south of the city of Split, you will find long stretches of pebble beach lapped by the blue Adriatic waters – perfect for a relaxing family beach holiday. The beautiful islands of Brac and Hvar are easily accessible by ferry from a number of points along the coast, and both have many secluded beaches where you can get away from it all.

Discover local charm in Dalmatia

Still relatively undiscovered by tourists, a villa holiday in Dalmatia offers you the chance to discover the Mediterranean as it was years ago. There is plenty of culture and history to be absorbed here, and many friendly and engaging local people to meet. Beautiful historic cities such as Dubrovnik and Zadar offer stunning architecture and fascinating ancient sites, whilst exploring traditional villages off the beaten track will show you the traditional lifestyle that still exists. Visiting local markets to stock up on fresh produce and typical crafts from local artisans will really help you feel like one of the locals.

James recommends
  • Take a stroll around the wonderful old town of Dubrovnik, taking in the amazing architecture, fountains and statues amid the cobbled streets.
  • Absorb the atmosphere of the annual summer festival in Split. From mid-July to mid-August, you can enjoy many performing arts events across the city.
  • Enjoy an al fresco lunch at one of the cafés in the Perestil - the centre-piece square of the Roman emperor Diocletian's palace in Split. Then, when the sun goes down, return to enjoy an impromtu jazz concert whilst sitting on the ancient marble steps, (cushions provided!).
  • Take a relaxing ferry ride from Dubrovnik to Kolocep, one of the tiny Elephite islands, where the pine clad forest and sparkling bays and beaches are traffic free.
  • Explore Omis and its wonderful nature trails. The more energetic can try their hand at river rafting, while those who prefer a sedate view of the gorge can elect to have lunch at any one of the wonderful fish restaurants of the area.
  • Visit the UNESCO world heritage city of Trogir and marvel at the Fortress, bell tower, town museum, or simply have a coffee at the harbour.
