Villa Julio offers a relaxing beach holiday for families or couples. It offers luxury with direct views toward the sea. Villa Julio has four luxury apartments. The villa is located just next to the beach and Split airport. It is surrounded by beautiful Mediterranean garden with more than 20 olive trees. Outside of the villa is composed of private swimming pool and tennis court. Guests are welcome to take tennis lessons upon appointment. There is also a large grill house which offers Dalmatian specialty upon request.
Entertainment: Villa offers a lot of amazing qualities such as beautiful view on the islands. Lots of entertainment on the pool with jacuzzi and massage. We have also a tennis school. Disco bars and night clubs are only 2 km far.
We can say that guests from villa are all surprised with qualities that we offer and everyone wishes to return next year.
It's official, I can honestly say that Josip is the nicest man you could wish to meet. Absolutely charming, welcoming and attentive. We (that is my Wife, ex-Uni student Daughter and myself) stayed in Stone Cottage, a delightful self contained building set just down from the pool and with a great view from the Balcony. The whole complex is spotlessly tidy and very attractive paths, grass borders and Olive Trees, the photos really do not do it justice. The pool is a sanctuary when the heat increases and never busy, sometimes we had it to ourselves for hours at a time. The walk down to the promenade takes no more than 10 mins through the garden and follow the road to a small alleyway straight onto the beach (although coming up slightly longer and taxing on the calf muscles - but a great way to burn off the excess calories). The beach itself is not sand (no brushing of feet required), its made up of small white stones so the rubber shoes they sell at the many shops for about £5 are excellent. The sea temperature was 26c, so its like a bath, but even that feels chilly when you first enter when the outside air temperature is 33c. The sun loungers and shades were quite reasonable for day hire and plentiful. The promenade goes both directions from the alley, turn right along the paved promenade to Hotel Medena end where you can get the taxi boats (£2) to Trogir or turn left and you can walk to a the charming old Seget fishing village (20 mins) or continue all the way to Trogir (another 25 mins walk - although a little bit along the roadside towards the end). Trogir is absolutely lovely (a mini Dubrovnik), we spent most of our evenings going there and in my mind nicer than Split itself, with some fantastic Super Yachts moored up. You are so spoilt for choice in terms of food and I would say roughly 3/4 of the price you would pay in the UK. I can honestly say that we never had a single poor meal, everyone was delicious. I can absolutely recommend the restaurant at old Seget Donji Fishing village, follow the sea front passed a small marina, passed a stone pier and there is a quite unassuming restaurant (the outdoor part looks like its covered in old fishing nets - although beware of the Honey Grappa - its too nice). Nicest meal we had, so nice we went back for our last meal. The Supermarket is at Hotel Medena, again only 10 mins along the top road and has most things that you need for the week (including box wine) and a fresh fruit and veg stall outside. Enjoy!
Just a beautiful place to stay - the facilities are great and the location fantastic. The view from the balcony over the pool, sea and on to Trogir was beautiful - you could never tire of it. The apartment was clean and comfortable with great air conditioning - much needed! An unexpected bonus was the apartment was thoroughly cleaned and towels replaced etc part way through the week long stay. You could just stay by the pool all the time (it was too hot for us to play tennis) but the walk to Medina beach (5 mins tops) brings you to the sea and all the entertainment there - crazy golf, pedalos, floating bouncy castle, restaurants. The walk back up is rather stiff! With the water bus only a short walk away to get into Trogir, the location is ideal. Great communication and a friendly host in Josip.
The suite is situated in a detached new building at the private end of large plot in a residential neighborhood. The plot includes the main house, pool, bbq area, tennis courts and gardens. All very nice (the pool has a great view towards Trogir). Heading North the neighborhood is situated up the hill about 5 to 7 minutes by car past the main entrance into the island of Trogir (probably the best nearby Google Map landmark) and about 25 minutes from Split. You probably will need a car. There are small grocery stores a few kilometers back towards Trogir and a big box grocery place past the Trogir turnoff which we would have gone to first had we found it first (we did most of our own cooking). The location is just up the hill about 3 minutes walk from the large beach/recreation zone of Medena. There are frequent water taxis back and forth to Trogir from the beach and you can get a daily excursion to Split from the beach also. There are lots of restaurants, souvenirs, excursions etc etc along this beach strip with Adriatic swimming of course. Hard to imagine a better location with things to do; beach, excursions, pool, eat, view, drink, Trogir, Split, turtles. And Jacob (and family) were very professional and considerate. My wife and I and my mum are from Canada and we stayed 7? (can't remember) days in August 2014.
Our family (me and two daughters, 8 and 14) travelled to Croatia in June 2013 as a part of children dance team participating in the dance fest in Trogir. First we were going to stay in Medena hotel but our friend proposed to book the apartments at villa Julio not far from it.
Though we made it short-term luckily there were still free apartments and I am happy about this choice. We have only best impressions about this time though it was a little bit hard to come back and forth to Medena to join the main group. But these are our personal circumstances not related to the holidays at villa.
We travel a lot and usually book hotel rooms so it was our first and very positive experience with apartments. Everything was so cozy, clean, comfortable and in a family way. The apartment had two bedrooms, one living room with kitchen area and a spacious balcony. As our friend booked apartment next to us the wall on the balcony was removed and we got a huge terrace with a great sea view.
We preferred to rest from cooking and to dine at the restaurants, there are many alongshore.Our favorites were Joke’s for pizza and fish, Segetski dvori for sea food, Pecena (right across the street from villa) for meat dishes.
Sometimes we stayed at the villa and cooked breakfast or lunch. It was very convenient as the kitchen has all necessary dishes and fridge. The room is air conditioned but the weather was not quite hot to use it often.
A big bonus for our kids as well for us was a swimming pool. Our children spent most of free time there. I prefer sea and it was perfect but pool was quite pleasing in the hot noon when we were back from the beach.
The territory is nice, clean and quiet, with olive trees, barbeque and tennis court.
Special thanks to the host Josip and his family who were very friendly and forward to assist with some issues like car renting, transfer from/to the airport etc. We brought also the delicious olive oil from his plantations.
All in all the atmosphere was very positive and relaxing but not boring.
Certainly it is a place I would recommend (and actually I did) to my friends and where I would like to come back.
We stayed at Villa Julio for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. There are just 4 apartments, so the pool was never that busy, but friendly as you got to know the other 3 families. Our apartment had 2 bedrooms, which were fairly small, a large living area, a large shower/toilet room and a lovely spacious balcony, which had room for an outside table, plus room for drying clothes etc. The kitchen area was quite small, and there was no mircowave or toaster, which was a shame.
The view from the balcony and swimming area was beautiful, looking out to sea. The walk down to the beach and the restaurants was a little steep, and took 7/8 minutes. We tried both the restaurants on the promenade, near the apartments, and they were both good. We did try to drive down there one evening when we were in a hurry, but it was a mistake, as it was very narrow, and uneven, and difficult to find anywhere to park - we would have walked it quicker.
I'm pleased we had a car, as the "local" supermarket was quite a trek if you were carrying shopping. We used Lidl, which was about 10 minutes drive away, and much nicer.
We used the water taxi to go to Trogir, which can be picked up from the beach. The small beach was typical of Croatian beaches, small pebbles, but clear water, and good for swimming.
Overall a very nice apartment, in a very pretty setting, would happily visit again if revisiting Split.
Just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks staying at Villa Julio. Praise for Josip and his family who were very friendly and helpful.
The apartment was perfect for our needs with a beautiful view of Trogir from a fantastic balcony. The pool and the surrounding area was spotless and it was like having our own private pool most days. We played tennis on the wonderful clay court kept perfectly by Julio.
Location was great - 5 mins walk to supermarket at Hotel Medina, Short walk down the hill to restaurants - recommend Jokes and Zule. Take a torch for late at night for the walk back!
Took trips to a couple of the islands and to Krka National Park. Dubrovnik was alot further by car than we had anticipated but well worth the drive.
Weather was perfect (not too hot), food lovely, apartment perfect, views wonderful and the Croatian people v ery friendlly and helpful.
(hardly an english person in sight. beaches are stony not sand)
Thank you to Josip and his family - Enjoy!!!
