This villa is exactly as described, it looks exactly like the pictures and did not disappoint! We were a group of 11 students and Mate met us at the airport and had organised a taxi and his own car to bring the large group to the villa. When we arrived we were presented with a lovely platter of food with wine and drinks, which was above and beyond what we expected! Mate was very helpful and directed us to the closest supermarket, beach and good restaurants in Kaštel stari. The taxi service mate recommended, taxi Antonio, was brilliant and was available for all trips, day and night.
The villa itself was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could want, including satellite TV, a DVD player and speakers. Mate cleaned the pool every morning, which was brilliant, and we were welcome to use the vegetables in the garden. He was also available to help when a light bulb went out and came over the same day.
All in all we could not have asked for anything more, and I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone!
We stayed for 10 days in Villa Lucija and it was one of our best vacations ever. Mate met us up on arrival with his wife and a very nice table of food and bread. We were 7 people living in the house and it was excellent with three floors for our young adult kids to have their separate apartments with full kitchen. The house is situated in walking distance from beaches, supermarket and restaurantes. The house is excellent with the nice pool and fruit trees. Our host Mate also put us in connection with a brilliant taxi service that helped us during the whole stay for both shorter and longer excursions. The taxi service was called Taxi Antonio, +385 95 514 7525, and Antonio was extremly helpful and supportive. We went to both Split and Trogir towns, as well as to a wonderful National Parc. The house is exactly as it looks on the pictures shows. We all have only good words to say about our wonderful vacation and none of us wanted to go home to Sweden after those 10 days in Croatia. Strongly recommeded. Mate was an excellent host, always making sure that our stay were perfect, and he was always available if needed. Many thanks for that Mate!!!
From start to finish Mate was the perfect host in this luxury villa. He met us at the airport, helped sort out the car hire and we followed him to the villa to be met by a feast of Croatian cheese, meats, fruit and wines. It was the perfect start to our holiday.
The villa is perfect for two families as there are two large self contained apartments with separate functioning kitchens and bathrooms. The downstairs communal kitchens and lovely outdoor space means you can also spend time together.
The pool is great, deep enough to dive into ( no shallow end for children who can't swim tho) and Mate cleaned it every day.
The garden is lovely with Large BBQ and we were invited to pick the tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, herbs and peaches.
The villa is about 20 minutes drive from Split which has incredible restaurants ( trust Trip Advisor) and the amazing Dioclitian Palace, and 15 minutes from Trogir which is very beautiful and has great shops. Krka national park is definitely worth a visit.
The Croatian people were without exception friendly and welcoming whenever we went. A beautiful country, beautiful people and a beautiful villa. Thank you Mate!!
We are a group of university friends who stayed at Villa Lucija during may/june time 2015. Upon arrival our host, Mate, made us feel extremely welcome with drinks and a lovely reception! The villa is beautiful, lovely views and a short walk to the coast (about 15minutes) where there are a few shops and restaurants. The villa itself was very clean and had everything we needed. It is set back from the coast in a lovely quiet area with spectacular views of the coastline below and stunning mountains at the back. The pool area had enough space for all 11 of us to enjoy relaxing around in the sunshine. Villa Lucija is a great location for getting too Split or Trogir either side (about 20 mins each way), and we made it to the KrKa waterfalls and to Hvar island during our week stay! Car would be ideally recommended for this property, although we came across a fantastic local and reliable taxi driver, Antonio, who could fit us all in his vehicle and took us on all of our day (and night) trips really easy!! The buses are also really easy to get along the main road. Restaurants and bars in split and trogir were both lovely too! An all round fantastic holiday!!
