Husband and I are wanting to spend an extended time (1 year) in Europe, but due to the Schengen restriction of 90 days within an 180 day period we are looking for alternative places to visit. We are aware of going to the UK or Ireland, but feel Croatia would be lovely. We are looking for at least a month long rental. Our needs are pretty basic. A studio is fine. Need to be able to shop and cook meals in the apartment some of the time. Our budget could be around 1200-1500 USD. Any assistance or advice on this would be appreciated.
