Croatia is very much in tune with present trends in tourism, with the demise of package holidays, the country is financially and administratively encouraging the building of small hotel units relying on conversions of old traditionally built houses of character found along the Adriatic coast.
So far, this policy has met with the approval of all concerned both locals and visitors and in the near future it will be the dominant factor in providing extra accommodation to cater for visitors who wish to avoid huge hotel complexes.
Rates Although we have negotiated special rates for accommodation with the hotels we are featuring in our programme of holidays, these rates tend to be variable and depend on factors like the number of days room will be occupied, the type of room, the meal basis, the period of season and the exchange rate Euro – Sterling. Since we cater for independent travellers, offering individual tailor- made arrangements, we are not able to list every applicable rate but are providing price-band instead.

Hotel Accommodation and Rates


For a precise costing for your planned holiday please contact us giving the following information:


With increased competition in air travel, airlines more and more, rely on ‘fluid’ pricing to fill in their seats. So much so, that in many instances it is impossible to predict the cost of flights from one month to another. This situation affects equally scheduled and charter flights. For this reason we have decided not to publish prices of fares - enabling our customers to take full advantage of any bargain fares made available at the time of reservation. Please see relevant page on this website for flight information and call us for availability and up to date flight prices.
