Direct Holidays In Croatia

Mar 22, 2008
Croatia extends from the furthest eastern edges of the Alps in the north-west, to the Pannonian lowlands and the banks of the Danube in the east. Its central region is covered by the Dinara mountain range, and its southern parts extend to the coast of the Adriatic Sea.

Croatia is becoming a very popular destination for people on vacation wanting to rent holiday villas. It is regarded as an up and coming European summer holiday destination and has experienced a massive growth in the availability of self catering apartments. It is a country blessed with stunning coastlines and beautiful sandy clean beaches.

Croatia has three climate zones; the prevailing climate in the country's interior is moderately rainy. On the highest peaks, a forest climate with snow falls, while the areas along the Adriatic coast have a pleasantly mild Mediterranean climate with a large number of sunny days. Summers are dry and hot and winters are mild and wet with significant rainfall.

Many tourists go on vacation to Croatia for the bike rides where they can appreciate the smells of grass from the meadows and the freshness of waterfalls. The abundance of village roads, forest tracks, paths through meadows and vineyards take them to places not to be found on the maps of the usual tourist sightseeing tours. All along the way are small holiday cottages which can be rented directly from the holiday home owners.

This leads to sociable encounters with the local population and allows the tourists to taste the local food and sample many of the locally produced wines.
If you choose to rent a self catering holiday apartment on the Dalmatian Coast, or stay in a holiday villa in Istria you can truly get a feel of the local way of life. The views of the Alps will take your breath away and if you ever tire of this magnificent scenery you can then move further down to the coast line and take a holiday cottage beside the beach

Dubrovnik is a popular destination offering many splendid self catering apartments overlooking the walls of this beautiful ancient city. The city is full of architecture and its cobbled streets and ancient churches are popular with tourists.

Some holiday makers choose to relax on the beach and enjoy the Adriatic coast. Here there are many holiday villas and apartments offering a peaceful and relaxing vacation.

Most people visit Croatia between April and September. Although the coast is too cool for swimming in April, many tourists enjoy the warm, clear skies south of Split and the cheap self catering apartments. Zagreb is a popular destination and the cultural season is in full swing at this time. May and June are regarded as the best months for all outdoor activities (except skiing). However what ever the time of the year people are guaranteed a warm welcome in Croatia.

In recent years there has been a big growth in the number of people staying in holiday home rentals. It is regarded as the best way to get to feel and experience the local culture and way of life and gives far more independence than being tied down to a hotel room.
