I'm looking for a really nice, preferably old, atmospheric house on the coast for a week at the beginning of July. We probably need a swimming pool, but close to the sea and no pool might also work. I've seen lots of houses on the various sites I've found by Googling, but most of the properties are modern, soulless places with zero atmosphere. We want somewhere with real character, stone walls, shady corners, lots of plants, etc. The sort of place that's fairly easy to find in Italy or France, but we want to be in Croatia. Am I asking too much?
We're taking the train from London to Venice, staying there for two nights, then renting cars and driving into Croatia, flying home from Split or Dubrovnik.
Hoping someone can help with the house idea. Many thanks.
