Our Amazing Holiday!

One of the things we loved about our Ciovo holiday, and there were many, was that the hilltop apartment was everything it was advertised to be. It was immaculate and modern and thoughtfully stocked for guests. And the sunset views from the patio were absolutely stunning!
The walk to and from the beach was slightly challenging at first, but as the week progressed, we had fun racing back up to the apartment. We didn't need a car with our 6-year-old twin girls as the town was very walkable - a 10-minute walk to the center where there were bakeries, an outdoor produce market and small supermarket.
As Americans living in London for the last 8 months, the balmy Croatian weather was a dream. Everyday was a beach day and when we felt like a change of pace, we took the water taxi to lovely Trogir, with its gorgeous promenade, shops, restaurants and ambling green market with wonderful cheeses, figs, olive oil, nectarines and watermelon, and oh I forgot to mention the gelato!!! We also traveled by boat to Spilt to see Diocletian's Palace and the Ethnographic Museum. Also a very walkable place and easy for our kids to digest.
We'd heard so many great things about Krka National Park that we rented a car on our last day so we could swim by the waterfalls. The drive was easy and gave us more dramatic views of the stunning coastline. The park was beautiful and swimming by the falls was incredible.
The warmth and hospitality of the Croatian people really had an impact on us. Everywhere we went we felt a lovely graciousness from the locals. Bozena, the owner's representative at the property, couldn't have been more helpful and accessible (she lives just across the road!). She was the key to us getting around easily and for the best price. We can't say enough good things about Bozena.
All in all this was one of our best family hoildays. Thank you Sharon for opening up your home to us. I think our daughter summed it up best when she said she wanted to live in Croatia!
All the best - Carole, Joel, Jackie & Olivia
