What makes this villa unique

If you are looking for a place to rest, you've just found it here – totally different from where you live. Here, a bird concerto will lullaby you to sleep, a nightingale bel canto will wake you in the morning; you will learn the difference between the call of little owl and the whistle of blackbird; if you take a short mountain trek you will see eagles nesting up in the mountain peaks.

The azure of the Kaštela Bay will enter your room and rest on your eyes as soon as you open them in the morning while still in bed. And when you come out of the house, no, you will not step on the packed avenue, but on the green grass of the lawn and garden and pick your tomato (and water it in the evening if you wish), cut some parsley or check olive trees and their fruit that will be processed into that divine oil you found in the kitchen.

You can take a walk in the shade of 400 olive, almond and oak trees. You morning aperitif – grape brandy, herb-flavoured brandy, walnut brandy, plum-brandy or a premium wine – will not be served by a bartender in a cocktail lounge where you only just managed to find the parking place. You can take it yourself from the wine cellar, enjoy it under your pine tree and listen to a goldfinch singing from above ....

If you are looking for a place to work, less common activity though, since it was work that required some rest, this is the place. Here, free from the chains of your routine, with a little help of that inspirational spirit, you can write your book, design your doctoral thesis, compose music, paint the surrounding landscape, prepare for important business decisions, organize a memorable team building...

So if you are looking for place to rest or to create – have no doubt – you've just found it at Villa Drage!

Wonderful family vacation in Villa Drage

  • 5 of 5

We are two British families and spent a week in Villa Drage during our summer holidays, and had a wonderful time. Mladim and Ojdana looked after us very well, welcoming us when we arrived, tending to our every need but ensuring we had privacy when we wanted it. The villa is large and comfortable with excellent facilities: the pool and ping pong were in constant use as well as the poolside outdoor kitchen / bar which became the centre of our lives. On our last evening Ojdana helped grill the fish we'd bought from the market: the result was spectacular. We left with several bottles of their delicious olive oil, the produce of the olive groves that surround the house.

Altogether a wonderful holiday. We'd all highly recommend it.

Excellent villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a fantastic location, very quiet yet close to Trogir and local shops, though a car is essential. Fabulous views over the sea towards Split from an elevated position. The villa is extremely well equipped internally and the outside facilities excellent. the owner lives in the neighbouring property and was very helpful though left us to our own privacy.

Magnificent villa with wonderful outdoors and pool

  • 5 of 5

A superb villa with everything that you could need for a perfect family holiday. There is a huge amount of space, all of which is to a very high standard. In addition the outdoor area is fantastic with the pool, the outdoor dining and the barbecue set up perfectly to enjoy the tranquil setting. Perhaps best of all is the incredibly warm welcome that you receive from the wonderful Krnic family. It is the best villa we have ever stayed in.

We're a big family an we were looking for a piece of paradise to spend our croatian holidays.

The family Krnic was not only very helpful and welcoming, they really treated us as members of their own.

The house in the middle of olive trees has all the ammenaties you can imagine.

Fantastic view on the sea and Split.... breath taking!

We will come back for sure and recommend this place to anyone who is searching for a high class and quiet

vacation. Last, the house is centrally located next to Split, Sibenik, Omis, Brac, Trogir, national Parks Krka

and Plitvice etc..

Thank you for all great memories.

We had an awesome time

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't imagine a better place for our holiday. The villa was great and we didn't miss anything. The location is away from the city and offers plenty of privacy. Nevertheless the way to shopping, Trogir and Split is very short.

The communication with family Krnic before the stay was very kind and when we arrived we were welcomed with some dalmatian specialties and a bottle of their own olive oil from the grove around the house. Also we could ask them for recommendations and everything else we needed.

All the rooms, baths and the pool were in excellent condition. In addition to the kitchen there is a second outdoor kitchen next to the barbeque, so you have 2 dishwashers and stoves… we really enjoyed our stay!

We also want to say thank you to family krnic and we hope that we were not too loud. We will come back for sure and recommend this place to anyone who is searching for a holiday home.

Owner's Response: Dear Christian, don't you worry about being loud, we certainly don't think holidays should pass in silence! :)) You and your friends were fantastic guests and we would be happy to host you again in the future! Kind regards and all the best, Mladen and Ojdana

Villa Drage was built on a fenced property of 16,000 square meters. It's located on the slopes of Kozjak near the town of Trogir. Fantastic panoramic view of Kastela Bay and Split will leave you breathless. You will enjoy in peaceful atmosphere among 400 olive and almond trees.

Villa Drage is situated perfectly for you to visit many gems of Adriatic coast, like three old towns under UNESCO heritage protection - Split, Trogir and Dubrovnik.

Trogir, a harmonious stone town on a small island that is connected to the mainland and the island of Čiovo by bridges. The old town, under UNESCO protection, is a treasure trove for lovers of art, Renaissance and Baroque buildings, Romanesque churches...The small, narrow streets and small village squares, numerous restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and galleries, along with numerous cultural and music open air events give this town a special atmosphere of the Mediterranean.

Distance from Villa Drage: 9 km

Split is the largest city in Dalmatia, the second largest city in Croatia. Do you know that the unique centre of Split,which is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage, has risen on the foundation of the summer villa of the Emperor Diocletian in 305? Although 17 centuries of undisturbed life within the walls has resulted in many primal works such as the Emperor’s mausoleum which was later incorporated into the cathedral of Sv. Duje [St. Duje], Diocletian’s palace is today the true symbol of Split. Indulge yourself in Split's easygoing state of mind, treat yourself with local specialties in numerous restaurants and bars and enjoy vibrant nightlife (Split is home to Ultra Europe festival).

Distance from Villa Drage: 24 km

"Those who seek paradise on Earth must come to Dubrovnik”, wrote George Bernard Shaw, smitten by the beauty of the city whose untouched,1940 m long defensive walls - today under the protection of UNESCO - girdle in a city which carries the appellation of the Pearl of the Adriatic.

Dubrovnik, the center of the southernmost region of Dalmatia and its most famous representative, is also the star on the front pages of many prestigious world magazines, as well as being at the very top of the scale of the most beautiful cities of the world.

Distance from Villa Drage: 250 km

Interesting note: Popular HBO TV show "Game of Thrones" is being filmed in all three of mentioned towns.

You can also visit a city of Zadar where you can see famous "Sea organ" and "Greeting to the sun" monuments and enjoy "the most beautiful sunset in the world".

Distance: 150 km

Also, a beautiful city called Šibenik is just 30 minutes drive from the Villa. Very near (in Solin, few kilometers before Split) you can visit Salona - well preserved ruins of an ancient Roman town dating as 2 centuries B.C. Above it there's also a famous Klis fortress an top of the Kozjak mountain. It was also where Game of Thrones was filmed (city of Meereen).

Regarding amazing and really stunningly beautiful National Parks in the region we are recommending to visit: National park Krka (distance from the villa - 45 km), National park Kornati (distance from the villa - 95 km), National park Paklenica (distance from the villa - 138 km) and National park Plitvice Lakes which is considered to be one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world (distance from the villa - 225 km).
