Luxury Croatia Holidays

Rustic charm and an Adriatic coastline

Holidays in Croatia offer wonderful sand and shingle beaches, historic towns and cities and a fascinating culture just waiting to be discovered. It’s fast becoming a favourite with British holidaymakers and it isn’t hard to see why. Couples will love the romance of the narrow winding streets and chic harbours, while families will find Blue Flag beaches, English speaking locals and lots of activities. If you prefer to explore there are opportunities to rent a car and discover the coastline, rural villages and waterfalls.

With so many fantastic options, choosing the right place for your Croatia holiday can be difficult. Take the cosmopolitan city of Dubrovnik, full of history and gorgeous beaches, which makes it ideal for families and couples. If you want to spend your days island hopping, head to the city of Split, where you can book a boat trip. Or, if you'd like to explore Split more you can spend days admiring its historic architecture and lively culture. And for Venetian architecture and unique views, make your way to Rovinj, there are also plenty of beaches too.

If you want to venture off the beaten track, Trogir is a peaceful place to visit. Being only accessible by bridges from the mainland, it's awash with history and has UNESCO World Heritage status.

Destinations in Croatia

Gilded churches, maritime museums, marble streets and cliffside bars – Dubrovnik isn’t the most-visited city in Croatia for nothing. Cathedral-quiet islands and pine-backed beaches lie just outside the ancient city walls.
Split is one of the biggest – and prettiest – cities in Croatia, cultivating a joie de vivre that transforms its sprawling Roman palaces and auditoriums into cultural, dining and festival venues.
Wander through the terracotta streets which lead up into the emerald forests of the hills surrounding Hvar Town or walk through the harbour area and soak in the views of the sea.  
Rovinj is a northern town with a Venetian look. It funnels terracotta-topped churches, marbled museums, cobbled streets and waterfront houses onto a little headland overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

Trogir is an energetic seaside town on the small Čiovo Island – you can expect to find a backdrop of renaissance architecture, plus lots of fantastic places to eat and sights to see.

Flight Information

Flights from the UK to Croatia take around 2 hours 30 minutes.

When to go

July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit. It's less busy, plus the weather tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).


Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 2 Euros or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.

Dubrovnik and Split make a great combination. It's quicker to take the motorway between them (about three and a half hours), but the coastal road is much more scenic. You can also opt to travel by speedboat, which takes around two hours.
