If you're visiting Croatia, you gotta see Dalmatia

Dalmatia (no connection to the spotted dog breed) is a darling strip of coast on the eastern Adriatic Sea, where stone houses with terracotta roofs cluster on top of sea cliffs. The name of this southern Croatian region comes from an ancient tribe, the Dalmatae, who lived here in the 1st millennium BC. A Dalmatia vacation rental will place you in 1 of the region's 16 cities that are mostly on the coast or the surrounding islands. Its largest city is Split, which has many historic must-sees, and be sure to visit and wonder at the impressive Walls of Dubrovnik.

Let's do the time-warp dance in Dalmatia

Stepping into this region is like going back in time. Everywhere, there are remants of the Roman, Ottoman, and Byzantine Empires, like in the historic center of Split and Dubrovnik's Old Town. The mild Mediterranean climate and breathtaking coastline make Dalmatia a haven for outdoor activities. Visit the Omis Riviera, where you can go rafting or windsurfing on the Cetina River. This region is full of limestone cliffs that make for great climbing and hiking. Or ferry over to one of many surrounding islands, like Korkula, Pag, Hvar, or Brac, to cruise along the beaches and explore the sea caves.

Fall in love with Dalmatia, an affair to remember

You gotta get greedy with Dalmatia's beautiful outdoors. Park Marjan is an enormous greenspace on the Split coast with countless trails, a botanical garden, jagged cliffs, and lookout points. Head into Split to admire Diocletian's Palace, an ornate Roman fortress from the 4th century AD. While you're there, make a splash at Dalmatia Aquapark. The medieval Walls of Dubrovnik will surely wow you, and for some lively nightlife and Mediterranean cuisine, visit the port town of Makarska. Last, get an adrenaline rush when you drive the narrow, winding roads up to the Sveti Jure peak in the Biokoko mountains.

You'll take a shine to this sunny coastline

What's not to love about the mellow Mediterranean climate you'll experience with Dalmatia vacation rentals? Summertime, the busiest season for visitors, is sunny and bright, with highs in the 80s and very little rain. The Adriatic Sea temperature is in the mid 70s from June to September, which is a perfect swimming temp. Outside of those months, the water gets pretty chilly. January is the coldest month, with temps in the 40s. You won't get your feet wet with rain; this coastal climate is dry and sees about 30 inches of rain per year, usually between November and March.

The geography of Dalmatia is simply gorges

You'll be swimming clearly here: the eastern side of the Adriatic Sea is always clean and pristine because of the counterclockwise current that sweeps up debris. The surrounding islands have many pebble beaches, so it's probably smart to pack some water shoes. On the coast and further inland are sharp limestone peaks and cliffs that rise up dramatically from the sea and riparian rivers, creating spectacular gorges. The landscape around all of Dalmatia vacational rentals is a colorful mesh of blue sea, lush green hills, plunging peaks, and red-roof buildings.
