Booking one of our villas in Makarska, with its pebbly beaches and mild Mediterranean climate, takes you straight to the heart of a Croatian dream. The city is one of the oldest on the Adriatic coast, located at the foot of the mountain Biokovo, and south of the culture town of Split. Its beautiful nature and vivid city life with restaurants, shops and cafés attract thousands of visitors each year. As soon as you arrive here after checking into your Makarska villa, you’ll fall under the city’s spell as well.

Our villas in Makarska are as stunning as the scenery

Makarska offers a gorgeous backdrop for your vacation. Imagine enjoying the sun on the terrace of your Makarska villa, overlooking the glimmering Adriatic Sea with the islands of Hvar and Brac in the distance and the Biokovo mountain glistening in the background. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful location for your Croatian holiday. Because of the stunning landscape, we’ve put extra effort into hand-picking only the most exquisite villas in the area. From the coast to the countryside, enjoy your dream vacation in the privacy of your own luxury villa in Makarska.

Explore the city outside of your Makarska villa

The name “Makarska Riviera” has been increasingly used for this area due to the similar look and feel to the French Riviera. Thus, you’ll have plenty of reasons to step out of your Makarska villa, as its surroundings offer many things to do and see for visitors of all ages. From sightseeing, to sunbathing and sports, everyone can spend their holiday according to their preferences.

See the sights in the city

Makarska has seen the rule of the Ottomans, the Venetians, the French and even the Austrians, who each left a part of themselves in the city. Today, its beautiful old city center is surrounded by numerous hotels, villas, cafés and restaurants. It offers a lot to see, but we recommend you start with the following landmarks:

  • The City Museum
  • St. Mark’s Cathedral
  • City Gallery and City Library
  • Kalelarga Street
  • Napoleon's Monument
  • Observatory
  • Biokovo Nature Park

Relax at the beaches

The Adriatic Sea has shaped some of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of Croatia in this area. Although many of our villas in Makarska have their own pool with a view to the sea, you should still venture out and enjoy a day at one of the many beaches.

Most of them are pebbled along the 10-kilometre-long coastline. The longest beach on the Makarska Riviera is Central City Beach, which extends  two kilometres over the entire populated western part of the city. Its offering of places to find  refreshment,
food and entertainment will please families and solo visitors alike.

Other noteworthy beaches are Biloševac and Cvitačka, where you can enjoy the services of around a dozen restaurants. Nearby you can even find a nudist beach, for those who don’t like tan lines. Makarska hasn't forgotten your four-legged friends either. There are dog beaches in the Ramova bay.

And if you’d rather enjoy some peace and quiet, head out to west from the Central City Beach and discover various isolated beaches and bays before returning to your Makarska villa for the evening.

Stay active

In recent years, Makarska has become one of the most desirable destinations for sports tourism. Even if you’re not a professional athlete, the city has plenty of options for breaking a sweat other than just lying on the beach on a hot day.

The hiking trails on the Biokovo mountain are a popular pastime, offering the chance to conquer the second largest peak in whole of Croatia. Climbing enthusiasts are also delighted to find climbing rocks at their disposal. There are many well-maintained cycle paths around the city too, and multiple options for renting a bike throughout the year. If you really want to push yourself, try the strenuous three-hour bike route to the top of Sv. Jure. After that endeavour, nothing beats putting your feet up on the sofa of your Makarska villa.

Finally, sea lovers will of course find a plethora of different water sport activities from jet ski renting to fishing and even parasailing.
