Stone Villa With Swimming Pool - Peace And Quiet!
About Vladimir Popovic
Hi, my name is Vladimir. I live in Zagreb, capital of Croatia but was born in Sibenik. I enjoy people, travel and open air activities. I love my country, especially the region of Dalmatia and tend to share the best of it with people who explore it. In Zagreb I also work in tourism sector and I'll definitely do my best to make your stay here purely enjoyable memory.
Why Vladimir Popovic chose Vodice
The house you're just looking at is my fathers birth home. It's a family house from more than 200 years. We love the idea to renovate and make it a traditional style vacation home not just for us but anybody that seeks a true vacation and rest from the everyday life. Take a pause in peace and quiet from the moment you get here. The only sound you'll be hearing is the silence. The village is rich with various typical rural dalmatian fruits and products. Mulberry, figs, grapes, briar, pomegranates, olives, cheese, wine and much more are just some of many things that are at your reach during the stay. Probably you'll discover them yourself while exploring the village area.
What makes this Villa unique

Serene and Stylish!
Cista Mala is a stunningly surreal village of charming stone villas; rich with an abundance of various wild growing herbs and fruits. As well as, warm and inviting residents, full of character and history.
Our wonderfully inclusive hosts Marko and Lenka, made us feel more like we were family friends, rather than new acquaintances.
Greeting us with a traditional welcome meal, from the first day; they continued to treat us during the rest of our stay, with insight on how to acquire the best local cheese, wine and produce. They also recommended the best attractions and excursions, in the area.
Marko and Lenka, are a gracious and genuine couple, whom we intend to visit regularly.
The villa itself is appointed very tastefully, with everything you could need to feel the comforts of home. So much so, that you may want to stay on the property during your entire stay! ...To enjoy lounging by the pool, preparing meals on the open fire grill, appreciating the peaceful, unspoiled nature all around, or simply gazing at the starry skies on balmy Croatian nights. ....Highly Recommended!
Oase der Ruhe abseits des Touristentrubels
Wir verbrachten zwei außerordentlich ruhige und erholsame Wochen im Ferienhaus von Vladimir. Seine Eltern, die im Nebenhaus wohnen, halfen uns in allen Angelegenheiten sehr gerne weiter. Hier besonderen Dank an Marko, der uns mit regionalen Produkten aus der Umgebung versorgte. Nicht zu vergessen die Trauben, die wir am Haus reichlich ernten konnten. Ein besonderes Erlebnis war das leckere Abendessen mit Muscheln, das die beiden für uns kochten und uns damit überraschten.
Das Haus mit den beiden abgeschlossenen Wohnbereichen ist ideal für zwei befreundete Familien. Die Räume sind liebevoll dekoriert und sehr sauber und ordentlich. Es gibt unterschiedliche Sitzmöglichkeiten rund um den schönen Pool. Das Grundstück ist komplett abgeschlossen, wichtig für Hundebesitzer!
Im nächsten Ort, ca. 2 km entfernt, gibt es ein kleineres Geschäft für den alltäglichen Gebrauch und die morgendlichen Frühstücksbrötchen. In den größeren Orten wie Vodice und Sibenik gibt es genügend Möglichkeiten in Supermärkten, regionalen Märkten oder kleineren Geschäften einzukaufen.
Für einen Tag am Meer können wir die Insel Murter mit vielen idyllischen Badestellen empfehlen. Hier konnten wir uns auf die ausführliche Beschreibung von Vladimir verlassen, der uns per WhatsApp mit Strand- und Restaurantempfehlungen super versorgte.
Insgesamt können wir das Haus und die Betreung uneingeschränkt empfehlen, da wir herzlich und außergewöhnlich freundschaftlich empfangen wurden. Danke!
Thank you for the beautiful and detailed review. We were all happy to have you as guests and it was a pleasure for my parents as well as for me to give our best and make your holidays memorable. It's a great feeling for my family to read the reviews from satisfied guests. Makes all this definetly worth and motivates us to continue even better as it's a trully wonderful experience.
All the best from all of us!
Fantastic house with even more fantastic owners!
We stayed at the beautiful renovaties house Kula Milica in June 2018. Together with two babies and one 4 yr old we enjoyed the comfort of the house. Everything you need is taken care of... even more! Beautiful swimming pool, great BBQ place, fresh herbs and figs and several diner and breakfast spots... a perfect house to relax and enjoy your holiday. With or without kids. The Krka national park is just around the corner. You can reach the stunning waterfalls by taking the boat at Skradin (also very nice to visit). There are several beautiful beaches on 20-30min drive. And nice places like Sibenik, Primosten and Zadar are all reachable easily.
Thank you family Popovic for having us and letting us feel more than welcome. You helped us a lot and we enjoyed the chocolate cakes and pancakes very much!
If you want to have a comfortable and relaxing holiday... contact Vladimir and book this house! You will not regret it ;-)
Groeten uit Holland!

Le paradis sur terre !!!!
Un voyage merveilleux. Tout était parfait!!! La maison est superbe, calme, propre. Merci à vous Vladimir pour tous les renseignements. Vos parents sont des personnes merveilleuses. La maison est très bien située pour visiter les superbes villages et îles de votre beau pays. La nourriture est très bonne et pas cher. Je conseille le restaurant Roca!!! Je remercie aussi Maurice qui nous a beaucoup aidé pour la langue. Sa femme est aussi charmante. Nous avons eu le privilège d'aller manger dans la famille de Vladimir. Notre chien était le bienvenu et c'est un plus :) Merci pour tout. Thank you for everythink. You have a beautiful country, a beautiful house and lovely parents. Thank you for accepting our dog.

You are such a positive company and it is great to have a such guests with a great vibe and create even better connections. Many, many greetings from all of us!☀🤗☺
Great time beyond the beaten tracks
We visited Vladimirs house with 2 families, each 2 adults and 2 children end of May. Easy travelling, close to the highway but there’s no disturbance of it at all. The house, garden and pool are just wonderful, far away from noise and crowed places. But you must like nature places and the village feeling. We love this. The house itself is a very nice and warm place, decorated with love and passion (and not just ikea stuff). Vladimir’s mom and dad gave us a very warm welcome and helped us the whole stay with their guidance, either vine, olive oil, eggs, cheese… whatever we needed and the village and its farmers produced themselves. Sorry, I forgot the slivovic (maybe for good reason, but after the first 5 glasses it got much better :-) ).
We made very nice trips (peninsula Murter with our favorite beach Riva Podvrske, Sibenik, parts of Krka) and some trips in the middle of between (Zadar, parts of Krka), there’s plenty enough for every kind of taste.
We will come back. Definitely.
Thank you for the wonderful review! I have to say how much my family enjoyed your company and your positive energy and we would be more than happy to see you again in Kula Milica! A big, big hello from all of us!
Family Popovic :)

We are happy that you enjoyed so much and you are all always welcome here in Kula Milica. Really looking forward to our next meeting of all of us! Marko and Vladimir Popovic
Cista mala is a typical village of the Dalmatian hinterland. "Strategically" close to all major tourist sites in the region. All attractions and sites worth a visit (villages, towns, beaches, National parks etc.) are located within a 20 km radius of 360 degrees from Cista mala. Whether it's the beach (Muter, Tribunj, Vodice, Jadrija, Pirovac, Sibenik, Solaris etc.), or two of the most famous National parks, Krka and Kornati, all are available within about 15 minutes drive. The roads are excellent and everything is very well connected. This of course means that to stay at kula Milica, you need a motor vehicle. It takes about 15 min time but the benefits are immeasurable. Peace and quiet, is a guaranteed notice from the moment you get there, with the only sound you'll be hearing is the sound of birds and sheep bells (specially morning and the time of sun setting). But all this peace can turn the passive mode into active in no time as nearness of all main attractions lets you choose various kinds of activity. Weather it's beach activities with swimming, snorkeling, diving, sailing, windsurfing, and much more; National park exploration, cycling trough the rural or costal area or just city-walks exploring in Zadar, Split or Sibenik. So feel active while being passive because in Cista mala, Kula Milica - you are always more than welcomed!
