Croatia ticks all the right boxes

Croatia’s gorgeous Adriatic coastline has transformed this hospitable country into one of Europe’s hottest vacation destinations. The heritage landmarks of Dubrovnik, the glittering marinas and glamorous beaches of Split, the unspoiled islands of the Dalmatian seaboard, and the vibrant culture of the capital, Zagreb, tick all the summer vacation boxes. It's easy to make the most of the diverse attractions in Croatia—vacation rentals let you swap the tranquility of the beach for the buzz of the city at the turn of a key.

Croatia by land and sea

Croatia’s abundant marinas cater for crafts of all shapes and sizes, so it’s no surprise that the Adriatic resorts have found favor among sports sailors. The picturesque city of Split is one of the highlights of the Dalmatian coast, with its idyllic waterfront promenade shaded by palm trees and lined with welcoming restaurants. The palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian and the 4th-century cathedral are among its best-known landmarks. A guided tour of the historic center introduces the main sights, while a gentle climb to the summit of the pine-covered Marjan hill is rewarded by spectacular panoramas across the city to the glittering ocean beyond.

Dubrovnik—Croatia’s heritage showcase

The old town of Dubrovnik was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1979. Renaissance masterpieces such as the Sponza Palace and St. Saviour’s Church share the limelight with the iconic Baroque cathedral and Dominican monastery, which today contains an art museum. The city walls are among the best-preserved structures of their kind in Europe, dating back to the Middle Ages. Visitors can learn more about the origins of the old town in the Archaeological Museum, while the Maritime Museum showcases the importance of sailing and shipbuilding to the city’s prosperity.

The sun always shines on Croatia

Vacation rentals on the beach in Croatia provide the perfect setting for soaking up the country’s fabulous climate. Sunshine is rarely far away, especially over the Dalmatian islands of Hvar and Korcula, which regularly record summer averages in the mid 20s. The Dinara mountain range attracts cooler, wetter weather patterns, with snowfalls occurring over the high ground during the winter months of January and February. Happily the majority of Croatia vacation rentals are in areas where the climate is typically drier and more temperate, offering ideal conditions for summer sightseeing.

A wide angle on Croatia’s rich wildlife

Thanks to the wide geographical spread of Croatia vacation rentals, nature lovers can easily find properties in locations that are convenient for exploring the country’s diverse wildlife landscapes. Habitats range from dense forest to open wetlands, while the rocky coastline makes an ideal resting place for migrating birds. Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia’s oldest and most famous reserves, encompassing a series of lakes, waterfalls, and limestone canyons. A network of walkways and hiking trails enables visitors to observe indigenous wildlife at close quarters, including deer, bears, wolves, boars, and rare birds.
