Okrug Gornji Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Perfect Holiday Base - Luxurious 2 Bedroom apartment to sleep 5/6 near Trogir

You will be well looked after in this Beautifully Furnished apartment. We have Satalite TV and Wi Fi. Our local contact speaks perfect English, German and Croatian. She can arrange for reduced rates for airport pickup, car hire and many excursions and will be on hand throughout your stay should you need any help with anything. We are a short walk from the Main Beach on Ciovo and about a 25 min walk into Beautiful Trogir with its amazing harbour. There are local boat trips, diving, white water rafting and sailing on offer. The local restaurants all offer excellent value for money with amazing local produce including the wonderful fish and wine. A visit to Trogir, Split and KrKa National Park are all a must. There are many maps and information leaflets in the apartment to help you. The view from the apartment is wonderful and you will see many a wonderful Sunset from the balcony. There is a garden area where you can light up the BBQ and soak up the views and also makes a great space for the children to play.

Travel: The small airport of Split is approx 8km away and is a very short car ride from the apartment. Direct flights from Luton, Stansted and Gatwick. Airlines to try are Easyjet, Ryanair and BA. You can also try Whizz Air from Luton to Split. Zadar airport is approx a 1hr 30 mins drive away with a very easy drive on virtually empty toll roads for most of the journey. Flights run from Stansted to Zadar with Ryanair. Car Hire from Split and Zadar airport is very easy and not expensive. Car hire can be booked on-line from either airport so that you are guaranteed a car (especially in high season). Make sure you have some croatian money with you for the Toll Charge. Our manager in Croatia could also arrange car hire for you at local reduced rates and for your desired amount of time if you maybe only wanted a car for a day or two.

A local bus service operates locally around the Island and links up with the service operating between Sibenik and Split. A regular inexpensive network of Ferries operates to the many Croatian popular destinations eg Hvar, Brac, Korcula and Dubrovnik from Split. In high season there is a Boat Taxi from Ciovo to Trogir which is inexpensive and takes about 20 minutes.

Booking Notes: For Booking form and further details please phone or email us. In order to confirm your stay a deposit of 30% of the full payment (or full payment if booking within 50 days of departure) must be paid at time of booking. This deposit is not refundable in normal circumstances leading to your cancellation or failure to pay on time. The balance of the cost of your stay must be received by us not less than 50 days prior to departure.

A clean, modern and well furnished apartment with a stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Sharon's apartment in Okrug Gornji. The apartment lived up to the billing it had on this website. The view from the spacious balcony was breathtaking - our family spent many a happy moment out there talking, laughing, playing games, reading and generally recharging our batteries. The price you have to pay for such a view is the steep descent to - and ascent from - the beach, which was physically challenging with beach bags and shopping, in the heat, with a reluctant 5 year old in tow. If you can, I'd suggest renting a scooter to get out and about in Ciovo, although that wasn't an option for us with young children; renting a car would be a little scary as the roads are generally very narrow and squeaky passing situations are the norm. The beautiful and interesting town of Trogir is a short boat ride away, and there are some great excursions to be experienced: swimming in proximity to the Krka falls was unforgettable, and our trips to Split and the 'fish picnic' (a boat tour with several stopping off points, including the freshest fish supper you could imagine) were also well worth it. Bozena, who manages the properties, is a first port for all your enquiries and takes the stress out of the holiday.

Stunning and ever changing view

  • 5 of 5

For the first time ever We didn't hire a car. We were collected from the airport by Mr V for 20 euros, organised by Sharon. After that we used the very regular and reasonably priced boats to visit the beautiful Trogir and Split. We had a memorable trip back after dinner with a full moon reflecting on the water. A memorable day spent at Krka national park, swimming close to the waterfalls, was a highlight. This trip was courtesy of Mr V too. There are loads of beaches where you can safely swim in the amazingly turquoise sea.

The apartment is very spacious with a very large balcony with breathtaking views of the sea. There are many shops, bakeries and restaurants within walking distance, all reasonably priced.

The hill is steep to the apartment if, like us, you plan to walk and use the boats rather than hire a car. Once out of the town and out of Trogir, the roads are wide and empty.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that you had a wonderful holiday in Croatia and had a good look round the Island and the surrounding areas. There really is so much natural beauty there. The only problem with Croatia we find is that you come back a few pounds heavier due to the wonderful food! We hope to welcome you and your family back again soon. Very Best Wishes Sharon

Modern ,comfortable property with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful modern property in which we enjoyed a very relaxing holiday.The views and sunsets from the spacious terrace were spectacular.If you need any help or advise Bozena is always on hand if you need her .

The lovely old town of Trogir is a easily accessed by boat and if you feeling energetic you could walk.

We really enjoyed our stay and wished we'd booked for longer.

Lovely, modern, bright apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment. Situated at the top of a hill. Spacious, bright, well furnished Lovely large balcony giving stunning views of beautiful sunsets.Bozena was a lovely, friendly, approachable lady. The taxi service to and from the airport was great. The combination of the beach during the day and the taxi boat in the evening to Trogir for dinner made it a great holiday. Thank you. Liz & Ian

Very very helpful and excellent service

  • 5 of 5

If your taking young children and need to know support is available, then look no further. We took our 3 young children and there was an emergency where our young boy was taken to the Croatian hospital by ambulance because of heat exhaustion. One call to the Concierge who met us at the airport, we were collected on time, taken to the hospital, where he translated for us, waited 5 hours and even brought us water before taking us back to the apartment. On top of this the apartment was great, very clean and accurate to the description. We would definitely recommend this property, especially if you have a young family and need to know support is on hand.
