Perfect family holiday house
About the Owner
As a family we are always passionate about travel and taking holidays, that's why 20 years ago we have established Explore Travel & Cruises.
We believe in a quality service and product which is why we invest our own time and money into our projects and always strive to support the local communities we work in.
We own the Villa in Croatia and our authentic sailing boat on the Nile in Egypt so you are dealing directly with us and not going through a third party.
I know you will love taking holiday with us and we look forward to welcoming you.

Perfect family holiday house
Our family of 5 had a blissful week at Villa Dream, having spent a little time travelling around further north in Croatia. We had day trips to the coast, about 40 minutes drive across the most gorgeous mountain road, where it was extremely hot this summer. So it was a real treat to come back to "our" villa in the hills where the temperature was a few degrees cooler. On one of our return drives in the dark, we saw deer, foxes, a lynx and pine marten from the car. Fairly sure that we saw bear footprints when we had an early morning walk too. Mladen and Adrianna made us feel so welcome and were very helpful. It's such a peaceful spot and there's a handy shop and a friendly bar a short walk from the house. We will definitely be back!
Great house & Amazing holiday
We just returned from our best holiday ever! My husband, 2 daughter & my son. We spent a week in Villa Dream and loved every minute of it. It was the perfect combination of relaxation/peace and sight-seeing. The house location is great and so peaceful, it's very clean, specious and Malden the property manager is really kind. We enjoyed cycling everywhere, we also enjoyed the food, I so recommend you try the Croatian Wine while you are there. Couple of times we went on daily sightseeing trips and visited Plitvice lakes, Rijeka and had an amazing walk in Skrad by the river. Really loved it
Excellent house & great holiday
Family of 4 with 2 teenage children really enjoyed our stay over Christmas & New Year. Could not fault the friendliness of the property Manager and the cleanliness of the place. Would certainly recommend Villa Dream for families who want to relax and enjoy the nature, also for families who like activities such as hiking, cycling, skiing. The villa location is great as we used as a hub to explore all the surrounding areas, Fuzine is only 3 km so close and there are some good restaurants, supermarket, post office and bank is close by and lots of walking routes. The Food in general was really good and very tasty; the coffee was amazing.
We really had a good holiday
Excellent Villa & great holiday
We recently visited Croatia and spent a week in Villa Dream in Lic. I loved the house and the Property’s manager service was outstanding. We were there during the month of August; we had a wonderful time, exploring that beautiful country, the Villa is located in a nice quiet area that felt so peaceful and relaxing. We have enjoyed swimming in the Lake, riding our bikes with the kids and it’s really convenient to get around so we hired a car and we went to explore Rijeka, Split. The house is beautifully furnished and I enjoyed tremendously our barbeque in the garden and dining outside most of the evening.
Lovely Villa & Great Holiday
A great holiday, great place to visit and we just wanted to say thanks for arranging it all. Villa Dream was great our family enjoyed so much and we did feel at home. The property manager was very friendly and hospitable, the food and wine is brilliant. We have rented a car and did a tour of Zagreb which was very interesting and gave a good contrast to the coastal areas we visited. Rijeka was a cool place to chill and some of the music bars are undiscovered treasures. We are recommending your Villa to all our friends and thank you for making our holiday so special.
Madi & the Family
We had a great time in Villa Dream in Lic. The Property Manager Adriana & Mladen were very welcoming and wonderful people.
The bedrooms were lovely and comfy too & the kitchen had just what we needed. We slept soundly, ate well, enjoying the barbecue several times & took plenty of trips to the coast, Krk, mountains, furthest we managed was Plitvice Lakes. Your bookshelf was great, I read 3 and boys read another 3 between them.
Thank you for all of your help and helping is make arrangements for our last minute holiday.
