A Holiday from Heaven

Our holiday was amazing! The penthouse apartment is exactly as described and was, in fact, even better than we dared hope for. The layout is relaxing and spacious but also very practical for a holidaying group or family. All mod cons are provided, you really need for nothing here. The apartment is cleaned and maintained to the highest standard and feels comfortable and luxurious - the finish is superb. Our beds were very comfortable and there is extra linen available.
Both bedrooms are nicely furnished with plenty of hanging and drawer space. There is a small safe in the double bedroom wardrobe which gave me peace of mind for passports etc.
The bathrooms are lovely, sparkling clean and the overall feeling is of high quality with marble tiling throughout.
We found the kitchen to be well equipped - there was everything I needed to cook family meals most nights.
The view from the balcony is breathtaking! I spent happy mornings watching the sun rise over the sea. The balcony is spacious and well furnished. The area in which the apartment block is situated is quiet and peaceful and it really is a very pleasant (short) walk down to the beach. The beach is a gem - quiet,clean and unspoilt, the water is crystal clear and calm. There is a beach bar offering friendly service and cheap drinks and snacks - but nothing else - what a joy to be free from beach vendors and tacky gift shops.
There is a supermarket, bakery (fantastic bread and cakes), fruit and veg stall and a choice of restaurants in the village so you needn't travel far unless you want to. Everythig seemed very reasonably priced to us.
The boat trip from main beach to the medieval town of Trogir was a highlight. Trogir is so beautiful, and again feels unspoilt and magical - the whole family enjoyed exploring there.
I could go on and on... there were no negatives to this trip and I feel like I need to return to this beautiful country and discover more. We felt very safe and welcome in Croatia.
Alison has been friendly and helpful throughout the whole planning and booking process, patient and understaning when my bank transferred too little money for the deposit(!) even organising extra accomodation for us when we needed to fly out a day earlier than planned. Thank you so much!
