From start to finish Mate was the perfect host in this luxury villa. He met us at the airport, helped sort out the car hire and we followed him to the villa to be met by a feast of Croatian cheese, meats, fruit and wines. It was the perfect start to our holiday.
The villa is perfect for two families as there are two large self contained apartments with separate functioning kitchens and bathrooms. The downstairs communal kitchens and lovely outdoor space means you can also spend time together.
The pool is great, deep enough to dive into ( no shallow end for children who can't swim tho) and Mate cleaned it every day.
The garden is lovely with Large BBQ and we were invited to pick the tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, herbs and peaches.
The villa is about 20 minutes drive from Split which has incredible restaurants ( trust Trip Advisor) and the amazing Dioclitian Palace, and 15 minutes from Trogir which is very beautiful and has great shops. Krka national park is definitely worth a visit.
The Croatian people were without exception friendly and welcoming whenever we went. A beautiful country, beautiful people and a beautiful villa. Thank you Mate!!
We are a group of university friends who stayed at Villa Lucija during may/june time 2015. Upon arrival our host, Mate, made us feel extremely welcome with drinks and a lovely reception! The villa is beautiful, lovely views and a short walk to the coast (about 15minutes) where there are a few shops and restaurants. The villa itself was very clean and had everything we needed. It is set back from the coast in a lovely quiet area with spectacular views of the coastline below and stunning mountains at the back. The pool area had enough space for all 11 of us to enjoy relaxing around in the sunshine. Villa Lucija is a great location for getting too Split or Trogir either side (about 20 mins each way), and we made it to the KrKa waterfalls and to Hvar island during our week stay! Car would be ideally recommended for this property, although we came across a fantastic local and reliable taxi driver, Antonio, who could fit us all in his vehicle and took us on all of our day (and night) trips really easy!! The buses are also really easy to get along the main road. Restaurants and bars in split and trogir were both lovely too! An all round fantastic holiday!!
