About the property

2/3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom With Private Terrace, Close To The Sea

Luxury first floor apartment nestled in the heart of the ancient Roman Diocletian's palace. The apartment has 2/3 generously proportioned double bedrooms, large living/dining area, 3 spacious bathrooms and a private terrace. The apartment offers all conveniences including, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, Sonos wifi sound system, cable. TV with English movie channel, Wi Fi connection, BBQ facilities and mounted hairdriers in each bathroom. Babysitting facilities and welcome packs can be arranged on request. Diocletian’s Palace is a pedestrianised zone, which means that car parking is a short walk away. There is a choice between paid and free parking, although free parking is slightly further away.The property can be reached by taxi or coach from Split airport which takes about 30 mins or why not allow us to arrange a private pick up from the airport for the same price as a taxi - we use Gecko tours, an excellent local tour operator who also offers a discount of all local tours (bespoke or advertised) for Prisca guests. We can also arrange a private speedboat transfer, a little more exciting and costly, which leaves just 800m from the airport entrance and will take just 15 mins.

NB. Please note - this apartment is for a maximum of 6 people and unauthorised accommodation of any further guests will risk forfeiture of deposit

About Thea Robinson

We are a British family who first invested in a waterfront fisherman's cottage on the island of Brac(property no. 55026) in 2004 and fell in love with Croatia's wonderful landscapes, people and food. In 2013 we felt it was time to make a second purchase in this beautiful, historic centre of Split and were fortunate enough to find this very special property. In April 2014, we completed the project and are pleased to make this lovely apartment available for others to enjoy.

Thea Robinson purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Thea Robinson chose Split

It's a perfectly positioned, spacious apartment with its own very rare, private terrace in the historic Diocletian's Palace. The apartment offers access to a beautiful coastline, a great deal of Roman history and many excellent restaurants, cafés and shops. Even the local supermarket is a site of historical interest. There is an amazing fish and vegetable market a short walk away, as well as an abundance of bakeries for your freshly baked, daily loaf! Why not enjoy a two stop holiday in Croatia by booking some time in our Brac island property, no. 55026

What makes this apartment unique

We were instantly attracted to this wonderful apartment by the high ceilinged, generously proportioned rooms and private terrace all set within a site of Roman antiquity and so perfectly located for enjoying all the delights Split has to offer. We now feel able to offer a two stop holiday experience of Croatia by offering potential visitors the opportunity to enjoy the hustle and bustle city experience in addition to the beauty and relaxation on the island of Brac - see property no. 55026 for more details.Also, in 2015 we partnered with a Split based excursion company which runs a variety of professional tours in Dalmatia to suit all tastes. Their focus is on the smaller group authentic Dalmatian tour experience, which is of a very high standard. Guests of Prisca will receive a discount of the listed price of all tours.

Absolutely wonderful stay in Diocletian Palace

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the apartment in the Diocletian Palace and had a lovely visit in Split. Baldo and the owners were wonderful and attended to all our needs and requests. Truly went above and beyond with recommendations and tips. Our family of four plus two of our kids young adult friends stayed comfortably in this space. It was clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The location was perfect and we cannot say enough about how happy we were. Highly recommend! Thank you.

This is by far my favorite house rental I’ve ever had. It is charming and luxurious, spacious and thoughtfully renovated.

Upon arrival, Baldo met us on time at an easy to find location. He showed my husband where to park the car for free then showed us to the apartment and helped with bags. The apartment is in a pedestrian only area, so we were prepared to walk with all our bags. He gave us maps and an area overview and was always available when needed.

It was a precious experience being able to stay inside Diocletian’s palace. We walked and wandered and explored and just soaked it all in! Great location for a rental.

We came with three small children and there was plenty of space. The apartment was perfectly accommodating for small children and even had perfect lights for night lights.

There was a international, dual voltage and usb plug in the wall which was a very nice touch. There are reading lights in the bedrooms that you can turn off from your bed, how nice!

The bathrooms and kitchen are lovely. The beds are comfortable, and the furniture is gorgeous. What more could you want?!?

Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: How very kind and flattering your review is Gretchen. We’re so pleased you had a good stay - travel with small children can be a real challenge and I’m pleased we’ve managed to make this a little easier for you. You’re the first guest to mention the international plugs with USB ports but I remember how excited we were when we first sourced them - it does make a difference - so many people travel with lots of gadgets now!

Absolutely stunning apartment, fantastic location and great communication

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've come to Prisca Apartment and it's always a treat. You are in the Heart of Diocletian's palace and can feel the absolute buzz of the city from the wonderful courtyard. We had a transfer arranged which was waiting for us at the airport (Baldo is amazing!) and ended up booking a tour with the company gecko, advertised in the apartment who we thoroughly recommend. The apartment has all the equipment to allow for meals if you fancy cooking and the comfort to allow a cosy night in. Thank you for another wonderful stay! We hope to be back again!

Amazing property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights with four female friends. The apartment was even better than we expected, and in the heart of the Diocletian palace - absolutely perfect! The owners we exceptionally helpful in advance, and Gecko tours were brilliant and took care of us from start to finish, always going out of their way to be helpful. This is perfectly located for exploring Split, the islands and further afield. We cannot recommend this apartment and Gecko Tours highly enough. Thank you!

Split is perfectly located for exploring the whole of Croatia, as well as the islands. The Diocletian's Palace area is a UNESCO world heritage site. It provides much historical interest, but has all the attractions of a bustling city centre next to the sea - including a beaches which are only a short walk or bus journey away. Besides the many cafés, restaurants and shops, Split also has an opera house, indie cinema which regularly shows English language films, as well as a regular cinema. All in all, Split provides most travellers with the perfect combination of attractions to provide something of interest for everyone.
