About the Dalmatian Coast
Dazzling blue sea, rugged shoreline and lush green hills mean it’s hard not to find paradise in Croatia. And the nation’s long and complex history means the style of properties on offer extends far beyond classic luxury villas. Dalmatian Coast retreats cluster in three main areas: sophisticated Dubrovnik, bustling Split and Croatia’s many dazzling islands.
If you’ve ever watched Game of Thrones you’ll recognise the beauty of Dubrovnik, with its glorious Byzantine architecture and medieval streets. What you won’t have seen is the harbour teeming with luxury yachts, the exclusive restaurants and the designer bars, let alone the elite hideaways that cluster in and around the city.
Or perhaps Split will be more to your taste? Croatia’s second city is one of the oldest in the region, founded during ancient Greek times. Medieval architecture and Roman ruins draw plenty of visitors to this bustling harbour town, but it remains less busy than Dubrovnik during the peak season.
When it comes to islands, you’re spoilt for choice. Hvar offers restaurants and bars tailored to the same demanding clientele that frequent Dubrovnik’s hotspots, as well as all the comforts the modern traveller could need. Others are more intimate and more discreet.
Wherever on the Dalmatian Coast you choose to rest your head, expect the freshest seafood, the clearest skies and pure serenity.
