This part of Dalmatia is known for its crystalclear sea and for kilometres of beautiful pebble beaches, which are known as to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia. It is close to bigger cities like Split or Makarska, and situated just beneath the mountain range Biokovo, which is popular among those who like to spend active holidays. And the highest peak of this mountain range, called Sveti Jure, is 1762 m high and just a short drive away from Tucepi.

About Maria Bozic
After 20 years of attorney in Zagreb, (residence) I bought a cottage in the olive grove in the secluded part of the old uninhabited village. The first goal for me was to rest myself from the stressful work in the metropolis of Zagreb, in nature below the mountain Biokovo with a view towards sea and the islands and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. And so it happened for a few years - from 2011th to 2017th. Enjoying spending time in our oases, Zvonko and me regreted that this beauty of our stay can not be also shown outside of our family and friends ... so we came up with the idea of reconstructing the small cottage in the big Villa with pool and we decided to getting started with the hospitality. Every happy guest and every good review remind us that we just wanted to give our guests a perfect vacation and a perfect enjoyment of stay in pure nature, with all high standards and the comfort of a villa and a spacious heated infinity pool. We have achieved our goal because the guests have recognized it. Thank you all.

Beautiful house, fantastic location, very helpful owners
The property is finished to an exceptionally high standard and owners have thought of everything. The views are stunning and the pool area benefits from sunshine from morning till sunset. The location is quiet, away from the town. It is however, only a few km from the closest supermarkets and there is a fish market and a couple of good butchers. Restaurants in Tucepi and Markarska were good value.
The owners were nearby but not intrusive at all. Pool was kept amazingly clean by owner each day before we awoke.
Overall a fabulous holiday, we have had villa holidays for years (15 +) and Villa Yanko is the best one so far. We shall consider returning, we have never done this before.
Thank you very much for a wonderful review. The guest's opinion motivat us, and it shows us how much we can participate as hosts in the stay of the guests, so that we do not disturb in their privacy. The privacy of our guests is our priority, but our priority is to be helpful too! Sometimes it is difficult to know where is the border between being helpful but not being intrusive. Thank you, we appreciate your opinion!

Villa Yanko is located in a lonely place on the 2000 m2 land so there are no direct neighbors which ensures good unforgetable rest andapsolut privacy. Guests who want to have a good time on the Makarska Riviera will choose our luxury Villa Yanko. The Riviera covers length of 59 km with beautiful pebble beaches above which the mountain range of Biokovo arises. The center of the Riviera is the town Makarska where you can walk all along boardwalks and visit historical monuments such as the 18th century Venetian headwater carved in the coat of arms of the city. If you would like an active vacation, whether it be hiking, cycling or quads, we suggest the Nature Park Biokovo. Sveti Jure, with its 1762 meters height, is the highest peak of Biokovo and in the same time the third highest mountain of Croatia. The Makarska Riviera is a micro-region of a Split-Dalmatia County. The shore, covered with dense pine trees, lies at the foot of Mount Biokovo. The Makarska Riviera covers communities of Brela, Baška Voda, Tučepi, Podgora and Gradac, and as said before, the center of the coast is the town of Makarska. The shore of Makarska was historically divided into 2 parts, Lower and Upper Riviera. The lower part of the coast comprised the villages of Brela, Bast, Baška Voda, Veliko brdo, Makar, Kotišina, Tučepi, Podgora, Drašnice, Igrane and Živogošće. The Upper Riviera included the villages of Drvenik, Zaostrog, Podaca, Brist, Gradac and Baćina. From the 15th to the beginning of the 18th century, the Upper Riviera was called Frag'uštinova named after the founder of the fortress of St. Mary in Zaostrog, monk Fr. Augustin Vlatkovic from the Zaostrogian Monastery. The Makarska Riviera has all the features of the Mediterranean climate: hot and dry summers and mild winters with a large number of rainy days. This year the area has had over 2,700 sunny hours. This info surely guarantees plenty of sunny days in our Villa Yanko. Throughout winter period the annual average sea temperature is higher than 20 ° C, and in the summer it is between 23 and 27 ° C. The Makarska Riviera is one of the warmest parts of Croatia. It is worthwhile to visit the Biokovo Nature Park, just a few minutes away from Villa Yanko, as well as a Malachological Museum located within the Franciscan monastery where you can find a rich collection of shells from around the world.
