With dramatic mountains and warm Mediterranean hospitality, medieval cities and myriad islands, Croatia is packed with undiscovered treasures.
Game of Thrones fans will recognise Dubrovnik as the fictional city of King’s Landing, with its rose gold stone, medieval alleys and Byzantine architecture. Yet it’s also popular with Europe’s elite, who swing by the harbour each summer to enjoy fine dining, elegant bars and sophisticated sundowners.
Most luxury villas in Croatia centre on the Dalmatian coast. Dubrovnik is compact enough that your chauffeur can drive you from many of the most scenic coastal villages to the heart of the Old Town in minutes. Or you might choose to stay around Split, the nation’s second city and home to the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace complex.
With over a thousand to choose from, Croatia’s islands are not to be missed either. Choose from fashionable Hvar, charming Lošinj, tranquil Brac, historic Istria or myriad smaller islets just begging to be explored.
