Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas
A superb stone-built villa on the coast at Jesenice, Villa Poljička is suitable for up to 12 guests. Ideally located for the beach, just opposite the villa, this spacious, sea-view property is sure to impress with its rooftop hot tub and glorious infinity pool.
Ample outdoor spaces are just one of this villa's attractions. The pool terrace offers six sun loungers alongside the 7m x 4m heated pool. There is also a barbecue grill. On a higher level, an even larger roof terrace offers lots of seating, more loungers and a tempting hot tub with room for six. The villa provides a sauna, and there is plenty of entertainment with a billiard table, gaming area, TV and PS4.
The property's layout is convenient for large groups, with kitchens and living areas on both floors. Each kitchen is well equipped with a wine cooler, coffee maker and all the large appliances you could need.
Each floor contains three bedrooms – two with double beds and one with twin beds. Each room has an en suite bathroom of its own. Bare stone walls and high-quality furnishings make these rooms very appealing, as do the fantastic sea views from those at the front of the house. Villa Poljička also offers free Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout.
Pretty Jesenice lies just 20km from the city of Split and only 7km from the riverside town of Omiš, a place of rugged landscapes and unforgettable sporting adventures on or over the River Cetina. Jesenice is also within easy reach of the historic city of Trogir, about 40 minutes drive away and just over an hour from Šibenik and the huge Krka National Park.
Pretty Jesenice enjoys an excellent location on the coast between Split and Omiš. With clear seas, pebble beaches and a lovely view out to the island of Brač, this small town is known for the abundance of wooden ships which line its harbour. It’s said there are more boats per capita in Jesenice than anywhere else in Croatia, and you won’t have any problem finding one offering tours along this beautiful stretch of coast.
Numerous beaches can be found within a short distance. As well as Jesenice itself, you can visit nearby Dugi Rat and Duće, in the direction of Omiš, or Podstrana and Stobreč, towards Split. While there are a few bars, restaurants and shops in Jesenice, you will find many more in Split or Omiš.
There is enough in Split to keep you busy for days. Croatia’s second city can easily rival Dubrovnik with its must-see historical sights. The Cathedral of St Domnius and the vast Diocletian Palace are big draws, and you can also find some impressive galleries, museums and theatres. Split is home to the Croatian National Theatre, the Meštrović Gallery and the Split Gallery of Fine Arts.
It’s a great city to just hang out in, with its appealing squares and glorious waterfront perfect for enjoying a bit of café society. If the city gets too busy, you can escape to Bacvice Beach or Marjan Forest Park. Among other attractions are a giant aquarium and a curious frog museum. Its location is ideal for venturing off the mainland to islands such as Brač and Šolta – a hotspot for diving.
Omiš is known as a ‘pirate city’, and it embraces this part of its past with all sorts of themed activities and attractions. In summer, there are regular pirate cruises which are popular with families. Away from the pirate theme, Omiš is also known for its excellent water sports. The River Cetina plays host to everything from rafting to canoeing, and if you fancy seeing it all play out from above, you can take a thrilling ride on a zip-line over the canyon. If you’re OK with heights, you could also do the steep climb up to one of Omiš’ mighty fortresses and admire the beautiful views.
Finally, don’t overlook Trogir – it’s less than 40 minutes drive from Jesenice, just beyond Split Airport. With its UNESCO World Heritage Centre, lovely restaurant terraces and attractive waterfront, it has the advantages of Split but without the crowds. Climbing the bell tower of St Lawrence Cathedral will reward you with a fantastic view. Still, there’s much to admire at ground level, too – the Old Town, located on an island connected to the mainland, is full of churches and pretty, medieval streets.
