A hidden, little paradise! What did we enjoy our stay! The owners are very nice people! The house offers all comfort and is located in the mountains, away from the crowds. Enjoy the incredibly beautiful sea view from the beautiful terrace ... Highly recommended!

Wolff Jul 2018

The owners picked us up from Starigrad and drove in front of us to the house. The house is small but big enough. It was very clean and the owners were very friendly. Life happens outside the terrace and bbq are fantastic. We loved every second there.

Vanuit Zuid Tirol kwamen we na een trip van 5 uur rijden aan in Starigrad. Een klein dorpje aan zee en aan de voet van het nationale park Plaklinica. We meldden ons bij de eigenaar van onze Belvilla, Darko Katalinic en hij leidde ons met zijn auto richting Belvilla. De fietsendrager schampte zo af en toe de grond wat aangaf hoe steil het was. Na een klim van een kleine 4 km kwamen we aan bij het geboekte huis. Geboekte huis? We hadden een dorp geboekt! Serene rust, magnifiek uitzicht over zee en een huisje wat al het nodige bezat. Zelden zoveel boeken gelezen in de hangmat. 's Avonds bakten onze jongens van 10 en 12 pizza's in de buitenoven en overdag de berg af en binnen 15 minuten parkeer je de auto aan het strand. De stad Zadar bevindt zich op 45 minuten rijden en is echt de moeite waard te bezichtigen. Als mountainbiker kun je ook je lol op. Voldoende terrein om je uit te leven. Oprechte gastvrijheid van eigenaren Darko en Lidija. Een heerlijke week Kroatië beleeft.

Brillenburg Wurth Jul 2017

This house, the place and especially the view exceeded our expectations. The hustle and bustle of the coast has lost you completely after a ride of a little 10 minutes into the mountains. Then you only hear crickets and have a phenomenal view. The sunsets were great! We stayed in the cottage. The bedroom has an air conditioning which is very nice. The cottage is fully equipped and the host was very friendly and helpful.

Tensen May 2017

Great welcome, beautiful cottage especially the location. Not to be afraid to drive to the house via narrow steep and partly dirt road. Very nice area.

Van Oers Sep 2016

Van Iersel Sep 2016

Could not find key address. When asked hotel and they have called owner. What a service! He picked us up drove to hotel and from hotel to house. What a very exciting way .... To get to the village you do need the car every day. We found this a drawback but accommodation is so much good !!

Munnecom Jul 2016

We had a super holiday with many bezinswaardigheden and then a cottage in a great location to unwind.

Vaesen Jul 2016

After a lot of traffic jams finally arrived in starigrad where the friendly hosts are waiting for us with the car to drive to our destination. That was on arrival not a luxury for a GPS system knows that the road but not incredible adventure that was it. At the destination itself was an ambience of tranquility and great weather to 43 degrees in the sun. s "morning was breakfast in the bright sun with 30 degrees and in the afternoon we returned from the mountains to the beach. This was every day the most adventurous ride that we've ever done in croatia. This was a top holiday
