A large kitchen, dining and living room open up to the furnished balcony with ocean views. Architecturally designed and built, the all units are equipped with the latest modern conveniences, providing you every luxury you might need during your holiday.
Croatia is famous for its amazing coastline. While the island of Murter, where the Villa Belvedere is located, may not be as well known as some other beaches and islands, it will certainly not disappoint. Located in central Dalmatia between Zadar and Sibenik, Murter is a true island but is easily accessible by car across a small bridge. The island is small enough to avoid overcrowding in the summer, but is still buzzes with activity and provides all the amenities that you would want for even a lengthy holiday.
The Villa Belvedere apartment is conveniently located a 5 minute walk from the center of town. A few quick steps outside your front door and you'll have the choice of two of the beaches of the island. At the end of the day, stroll back to your luxury apartment and enjoy a glass of wine on an ocean-view balcony before walking to main part of town to enjoy a drink or alfresco seafood dinner at one of the many bars and restaurants along the waterfront.
While you never need to leave Murter to enjoy a complete vacation, you can venture out and enjoy a wonderful day trip to Split or other destination along the Dalmatian coast. Alternatively, hire a boat at the marina and spend the day exploring the Kornati Island National Park, consisting of 89 islands, just off of Murter.

Murter area is absolutely the best place to spend vacation in.
Wonderful view of Murter! sitting on the deck at almost any time of day is fantastic - for breakfast, lounging with a book, soaking up the sun, or enjoying an evening cocktail. Podvrske Beach: Just over the hill where the pavement ends- dirt road leads to the best beach on the island- small parking area, kayak rentals- causeway leads out to a small island with many wonderful spots for swimming and snorkeling.- Could spend all day here! Many good restaurants close by- both places next to the Konzum- little place next door with the fish tank in front and new looking place across the street- both delicious and reasonable. Best place for kids is just down the street on the water side- “Pizza Barbera”.
Murter island and nearby sites
Except taking beautiful walks on the beach, exploring the old town and it’s vibrant galleries, souvenir shops, bars and restaurants, taking a hike on many trails through olive tree gardens, First Class Croatia is advising you to visit the following and whatever you choose, if not all, you will not regret it.
NATIONAL PARK KRKA The empire of Krka River, the magnificent karstic beauty traveling two thirds of its way to the sea through canyons. On its green path, it has seven falls, the last one being Skradinski buk with an average flow of 55 cubic meters of water per second. National Park Krka is rich in flora and fauna. 222 bird species live there, making it one of the most valuable ornithological areas in Europe. You can visit it by boat, car or on foot. Make sure you visit the ethno museum on one of the old mills. National Park Krka also has the only hawk training center in Croatia where you can see presentations of hunting with hawks and hawk trainers’ skills. http://www.npkrka.hr/#/pocetna/?lang=eng&p=
KORNATI ISLANDS NATIONAL PARK is a group of about 130 islands, islets and reefs sprinkled in the deep blue sea of the Adriatic covering an area of about 64 square km. The Kornati have no permanent inhabitants, although the present owners from nearby larger Dalmatian islands periodically visit Kornati to tend their vineyards and olive groves, bringing their sheep to graze. The sea around the islands is rich with fish and a variety of marine life.... The islands have no spring water, only rainwater collected in water holes. The unique feature of the islands lies in their rugged shores with many caves and coves. The landscape of chalk limestone is covered with bushes of rosemary, juniper, lavender, thyme, myrtle and sage. Pathways leading to steep and huge cliffs facing the open sea and others gently decline towards the sea, ending in a small bay with a jetty and one or two fishermen's cottages surrounded by pine, olives and fig trees. There are daily boat trips from Sibenik or Murter to Kornati islands. http://www.kornati.hr/eng/index.asp
PAKLENICA NATIONAL PARK is Croatian National park that cover the most attractive parts of southern Velebit, as well as its highest peaks, all located in Lika region. Paklenica is an area of unusual contact between the sea and the mountain, rich in natural forests of beech, black pine and mountain pine. http://www.paklenica.hr/Paklenica_en/index_en.html
Besides making trips to the National Park, exploring the countryside and seeing what sport opportunities there are is also recommended. As already mentioned there are many water sports you can join here like sailing, water skiing, windsurfing...Nautical center is situated in Šibenik where you can get all detailed information.
We must not forget diving around Kornati, since it is a really special event, as is also the rafting on the river Cetina. Rafting on the river Cetina is a special adventure where you can see the karst area by the river and test your adventure spirit. We also suggest visiting the nearby Skradin, renting a bike in a rent-a-bike center and exploring the countryside. For the brave and those who search a true adventure there is bungee jumping from the Sibenik Bridge. All who have tried bungee say they would like to try in once more and maybe this is a good opportunity to do this, for the first or some other time.
