Around 25 minutes’ drive north of Šibenik, Villa Klementina is located near the historic town of Skradin in the village of Bičine. A stone-built house dating from the 19th century has been converted into a highly luxurious holiday home for up to six guests, featuring a heated pool with hot tub and a beautiful terrace and garden.
The outdoor space lets you enjoy the luxury lifestyle to the full. You have great dining areas with a pizza oven, outdoor kitchen and high-quality furnishings, just steps away from the poolside. A large parasol covers a row of sun loungers which you can enjoy while the kids play in the wendy house which is safely in view.
Wooden beams and rugged stone walls add that touch of rusticity to the interior of the house. There is a living area with sumptuous seating, large flatscreen TV and stone fireplace, as well as a very inviting kitchen with dining space and top-notch appliances. A spacious balcony terrace with seating overlooks the pool area.
Three immaculate bedrooms with large double beds have access to the balcony, and each has a bathroom of its own. An adjacent two -bedroom villa can also be rented at the same time if available, an ideal arrangement for larger groups. Villa Klementina has also added another special feature, a sauna for the ultimate relaxation.
All sorts of other perks are included, with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a daily maid service and services such as pool cleaning and lawnmowing taken care of. You can also request the services of a chef, butler, tourist guides and many more, as well as car hire, transfers, fishing trips… the list goes on.
Skradin is a particularly picturesque small town with an air of romance about its narrow streets, and its marina is an attractive place to walk or to admire from a restaurant terrace. Historic Šibenik will impress you too, with St James’ Cathedral top of the list of must-see sights.
The small town of Skradin lies at the entrance to the Krka National Park, famed for its magnificent waterfalls. The town packs in some impressive sights of its own, and the view from the bridge which crosses the River Krka is one. The whole town is designated as a protected cultural monument, and it will be easy to understand why as you potter around its charming centre.
The town lies close to the river where a marina and a host of waterside restaurants can be found. This is perfect country for walking or cycling, and it’s easy to take a boat trip too. The river will eventually lead you south to the stunning town of Šibenik, around 20km away. This is a trip you should definitely make, with its medieval centre the part of town to see. Make the climb up to St Michael’s Fortress to get a bird’s eye view.
Also in Šibenik, the elaborate St James’ Cathedral holds World Heritage Site status, and was constructed entirely from stone sourced from nearby islands such as Brač and Korčula. Worth a visit too are the Mediterranean Monastery Gardens, a fun aquarium and the Šibenik City Museum. In summer, the town hosts some great festivals, including the International Children’s Festival, which brings music, dance, children’s theatre and film to Šibenik.
It’s a little over an hour to Split and Zadar – Šibenik lies roughly halfway between the two. In Split, there’s Diocletian’s Palace and much more of historical note, while Zadar is becoming known for unique attractions like the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation – both truly memorable experiences.
