We would highly recommend our stay at this villa. I think it’s the nicest place we have ever stayed at as a family and would easily give it five stars. We were three generations - four grandparents, two parents and two children aged three and five.
The place was immaculately clean, modern, well equipped and there was a very welcoming arrival from Ankica and Petar. They gave us the grand tour and had a platter of cold meats, cheese and drinks waiting for us. As we had no car, the day after our arrival Ankica took us for a weekly supermarket shop! Fantastic hospitality, they really couldn’t do enough for us. They were very helpful with local tips and knowledge, even helping us to arrange a taxi to Punta Rata which is another lovely beach if you fancy a change from Makarska.
The villa is located about a ten minute walk to the beach, but more like 15 minutes on the way home uphill in the heat and with two small children so we were very grateful for the villa’s excellent air conditioning after our climb. The villa is located near a main road but there’s a handy passageway opposite which avoids the need to cross it. A small supermarket right next door is great for cold drinks and snacks.
It was our first time to Makarska and we loved it there. The beach is nice with plenty of shade from trees if it gets too hot. The promenade has many good restaurants to try and makes a lovely evening walk. The Panorama and Bura restaurants were great for couples. Diners Delight and Ivo were more family friendly. We found prices to be very reasonable too with an ice cream on the beach costing just 80 Kuna (£1) and a large beer around 22 Kuna (£2.70).
The space in the villa is amazing and we made full use of it especially the pool and hot tub on the top floor. Note that it is an affinity pool with a sharp drop to one side which isn’t apparent from the photos so something just to make sure any young children are aware of.
Overall, everything about the holiday was great and we very much hope to return to Villa Palladium again in the future!
We stayed in this fantastic house for two weeks in july 2017. We were 4 adults and 4 children (6-12). I doubt if there is any better house in this area and we are quite discerning people.
The very helpful owners Peter and Annika arranged everything for us and made recommendations for the best restaurants in town when we needed that. Everything worked perfectly. The large house contains everything you need. Petar made a fantastic grilled tuna meal for us with fresh tuna from the local fish market. An unforgettable experience.
The children loved the large pool and stayed there for hours everyday. There is very good space in the house both indoors and outdoors on the terraces.
This should be the first choice for anyone going to Makarska. We will definitely return to this wonderful house.
Loved our holiday in Makarska. The house is perfect for families, modern, clean & well equipped plus plenty of room. We spent most of our time enjoying the pool during the day, visiting the old town in the afternoon then back to the house to walk to a local restaurant for dinner. Great quiet location with restaurants and market within 20-30. Our stay at Villa Palladium was perfect.
We were four couples holidaying in this stunning villa. From the moment we booked, Ankica and Petar were brilliant communicators. We arrived quite early and they had pulled out all the stops to get the Villa ready for us. It was beautifully clean and well maintained. While Ankica showed us around, Petar was laying out drinks and charcuterie which was very welcome after our early start. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa itself had everything we needed for a brilliant holiday. Ankica spotted from our passports that it was one of our party's birthday and she dropped in a bottle of wine and later in the week she brought us some lovely home made cakes. They are obviously very proud of this villa and rightly so.
