Beautiful villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 5 other (50 something) females stayed at Villa Lukas the first week in September.

From booking the villa through to coming home, Mate the owner and his family were extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, he was happy to arrange for car hire/bikes/taxi if required.

Mate arranged to pick us up from the airport on arrival, on the way to the villa he took us on a detour to show us the local facilities, supermarkets, shops, bars etc. At the end of our stay he took us back to the airport

On day of arrival he gave us a while to settle in and then took us to a large supermarket so that we could stock up for the week

There is a bakery and small supermarkets within about 5 minutes walking distance

The villa and the view are amazing, the pictures on the website do not really do it justice. There is a small pebble beach literally round the corner with many others along the way

We would highly recommend the restaurant Baletna Skola which is a very short walking distance away, we ate here on several evenings working our way through the varied menu

We would also highly recommend the restaurant Stalla (about 20 minutes walk away- passing by several bars on the way)

The villa is situated half way between Split and Trogir, both definite musts for visits whilst there. You will either need a car to visit these two places, or we would highly recommend our taxi driver Antonio (+385 95 514 7525) who was only ever "15 minutes" away when we called him. He also took us for a day trip to KRKA National Park (another must see - approx. 1 hr drive away) which cost us approx. £250 Kuna for the six of us -

Mate and his family live above the villa and they were always on hand if we needed anything or required information etc. but never intrusive.

The pool is wonderful with a beautiful relaxing view of the sea and islands

We would totally recommend a stay at Villa Lukas for family or friends who wish for a relaxing holiday and hospitable owner.

Thank you to you Mate and your family

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this villa In Kastella. The villa is great. Very clean, comfortable, well maintained and has everything we needed for our time here. The villa occupies the whole downstairs and Mate and his family live upstairs. They are a delightful family and as other reviewers have noted they are very helpful but unobtrusive. Mate's english is excellent. Mate picked us up from Trogir and happy to arrange Taxi's and bike hire. All the outside facilities (pool, terrace and BBQ) are left for your own use and so it does feel very private.

There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance serving typical dalmatian food and 4-5 bars in Kastel Lucksic 5 minutes walk away. There are a number of pebble beaches within easy walking distance.

We came here for a weeks relaxation by the pool and at the beach having had 2 days in Trogir and a week on a boat visiting a number of the islands and Split. As such we didn't hire a car, however the nearest decent sized supermarkets were probably 45 minute walk and so the car or bus would be helpful for that and if you want to visit Split and Trogir (both of which are fantastic and should be visited if you are in the area) it is about 250 Kuna each way to both in a Taxi.

Overall a lovely week in a great villa

Clean, Spacious with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday renting a villa after previously opting for package holidays. We were a little apprehensive as we had never done a holiday like this before. We were a family of 6 adults and 1 infant (17 months old). However, we were not disappointed at all with Villa Lukas, and the excellent host Mate and his family.

Any apprehensions were blown away as soon as we arrived at Split airport and Mate was there to meet and us and take us to our accommodation. On arrival we were very happy by the cleanliness and layout of the villa; Plenty of space with all mod cons including dishwasher, Wi-fi, air conditioning and DVD player. To top it off the outside pool, Sun beds and shower were as good as the photo's on the web page suggest.

The parents of the infant were overwhelmed at how child friendly the villa was - a brilliant cot, high chair, spacious living areas and just 3 steps leading from the villa to the patio and pool area, and even though there were 7 of us we did not feel we were living on top of each other.

The villa is set in a fabulous location, with stunning views of the sea and only a 2 minute walk to the pebble beach. There are plenty of amenities within walking distance, including a bakery, mini markets, chemist, restaurants and bars.

We did not hire a car as we had opted for a relaxing villa holiday and spent the majority of our time relaxing by the pool and on the beach. We did hire a boat for the morning and hired bikes on another day, although there are options to rent jet ski's, go on boat cruises and explore the surrounding area of Kastela and Split. In the evening we would eat at the local restaurants which were all excellent, incredibly good value and the local wines and beers, also up to a high standard.

Mate was a brilliant host and did not bother us unless we had any queries - he was only more than happy to organise bike hire for us and taxi's if needed.

Overall, we would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing time away, especially large families and we look forward to returning.

Excellent accomodation in good location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the apartment and the service we received from Mate and his family.

The accommodation has everything you will need and it is very spacious and well laid out and thought through. We had everything we needed there and the swimming pool and view is the icing on the cake. We used the pool a lot which was a god send with the very hot temperatures we had in our fortnight there. That said the air conditioning in the apartment was excellent and very effective.

The restaurant Baletna Skola - 5 mins walk away was a hit with us and had a large varied menu and always good food - we used it a lot but there are other good ones that Mate informed us about.

We visited Split - which we found very very busy, Trogir which we loved but you need to leave time to travel as the traffic is a nightmare, Kliss Fortress which had stunning views and we rented a boat with skipper and visited islands (excellent and a big hit with out teenage daughters) and also hired jet skis on the beach in Kastela.

A really wonderful holiday in an apartment that had everything, felt very homely, was in a great location to get to tourist spots but also walk to the beach and a restaurant for good food and drink. Thanks Mate for your excellent hospitality as well - unobtrusive but always available if we had a question. We hope to be back

great location and local vibe

  • 5 of 5

we spent three june weeks at this lovely home. our host, Mate, and his family were super cooperative and attentive to our needs. we loved the pool, the property, and especially the location right on the Adriatic and between Trogir and Split, both World Heritage cities. the feeling of being in a real neighborhood versus a classic tourist area was something we desired and received. we had a car and would recommend that. our group varied in size from 2-8 depending on the date.

There was 5 of us that stayed and we all was very impressed with the villa it was better than in the photographs. Upon arrival it was welcoming and well present as well as being really clean.

Facilities were excellent especially the cooking facilities - there was a lot of different things to cook with which was really helpful.

Mate and his family were lovely they was so helpful and he was even generous enough to pick us up and take us to the airport.

I would recommend this villa to anyone lovely location and stunning views of the sea and mountains.

When we stayed we didn't hire a car so we were using taxis and buses to get around. Someone recommend a guy called Tony he is really good with English and reasonably priced his number is - +385 95 8723 443.

we all really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon!

Thanks Mate and family

From the Owner

The land was inherited from my parents whose parents also lived here for many generations.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Split Airport at 6 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Twister at 300 Metres Nearest Ferry : Split Ferry Port at 13 Kilometres Nearest Train : Kaštel Stari train station at 5 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A1 Split - Zagreb at 18 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Baletna škola at 250 Metres Nearest Beach : Public Beach at 100 Metres Car: recommended

The city of Kaštela lies in the coast of the Kaštela bay under the Kozjak Mountain. With the city of Solin and the cities of Trogir and Split - both on the UNESCO list of protected patrimony makes them an urban complex. Although the area of Kaštela is indisputably a rich archeological site with remains dating back through history - since prehistory to the ancient Greek, Roman and Croatian times - Kaštela is mostly renowned for its fortifications - the castels (Kaštela). Urban settlements Kaštel Štafilić, Kaštel Novi, Kaštel Stari, Kaštel Lukšić, Kaštel Kambelovac, Kaštel Gomilica and Kaštel Sučurac were built at the end of 15th and during the 16 century as a sequence of fortifications - castels, as well as villages surrounded by massive walls that today form the city of Kaštela.

We invite you to take a walking tour at the promenades thru Kaštela and old town central areas that are often praised for their particulary interesting architecture of castles and churches.

All the fortifications and churches are open for public viewing and can be visited, but it is to be mentioned as extraordinary sightseeing spot the little church of Virgin Stomoria, the Biblical garden in Kaštel Novi, the Botanical garden and the Museum of the city of Kaštela in Kaštel Lukšić. The permanent exhibition of the museum is the testimony praising the history of our town. Cultural and entertainment shows (exhibitions, concerts, fishermen's parties), diverse sportive and recreational possibilities (tenis, sailing, hiking, ...), as well as parties on the terraces of the taverns accompained by homemade food specialties, make Kaštela an interesting place for everyone.

In addition, excellent trafic connections (Split Airport - Kaštela, highway, railroad) shall enable an extremly fast arrival to all chance travelers passing by our town.

The natural beach resort can be reached within two minutes from house, an excellent restaurant in five and the town center in ten minutes by walking.

The beach which is 100 meters away from the house is marked by water of excellent quality, with natural shade from the sunshine during the day due to nearby trees. There is a 15 km long path specifically aimed for riding and walking along the coast.

All seven little historical cities with medieval castels can be seen either by walking or riding.
