Why Blaženka Kelam chose Kaštel Stari
Kaštela can be compared with the most pretty and most interesting places in Europe, the Saxon King wrote in his memoirs early in the 19th century. 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.Today's Kaštela developed around seven small ancient settlements, Kaštel Štafilić, Kaštel Novi, Kaštel Stari, Kaštel Lukšić, Kaštel Kambelovac, Kaštel Gomilica and Kaštel Sućurac which used to be fortresses (Kaštela) and villages with fortified walls beside the coast. We invite you to take a walking tour at the promenades through Kaštela and old town central areas that are often praised for their particulary interesting architecture of castles and churches. Kaštela's town museum is in the famous stone castle of Vitturi, which was built in the 16th century. It looks as though it has risen up out of the sea, and is connected to the land by a small bridge. The main part of the castle is the famous Vitturi park, an example of garden culture and one of the most beautiful parks in the whole of Dalmatia. Also you can visit church of Virgin Stomoria, the Biblical garden in Kaštel Novi. Cultural and entertainment shows (exhibitions, concerts, fishermen's parties), diverse sportive and recreational possibilities (tennis, sailing, hiking, ...), as well as parties on the terraces of the taverns accompained by homemade food specialties, make Kaštela an interesting place for everyone.

Lovely Villa but ....
The villa was great and well maintained. As was the pool and the facilities. But this is not a three bedroom villa, it is a two bedroom with a pullout sofa bed in the living room. That was really disappointing. Also the trains that go by are very noisy old Diesel engines that start at 4am! You definitely need a car to get to any shops or well anywhere. Beautiful location and a lovely town. The owners were very helpful.
Lovely, clean villa in nice quiet area
The villa was amazing and the fact it’s a short (5 min) drive from the coast wasn’t a problem, if anything it made it an even quieter and relaxing location.
The villa and pool were very clean and easy for us to keep that way. We did have a small issue with a drain smell coming from the bathroom and have advised the owner to get it sorted before the next customers use the villa.
Split is 15 mins away and Trogir about 10, both have lots of bars & restaurants to choose from and Split in particular gets really lively after dark - it’s well worth a walk around the bar district for a giggle.
I took a road bike with me so had some of the most scenic rides each morning along the coast and into the nearby mountains - the scenery was simply beautiful.
All in we had an amazing holiday in Kastela Stari and would certainly use this villa again for its quiet location & fantastic pool.
Lovely relaxing stay
Lovely villa in a great location between Trogir and split
Airport less than a 10 min drive
Stunning Villa - Quiet and Relaxing
What you see is what you get with this villa, and then some!
The pictures don't really do it justice, you need to experience it for yourself. It was immaculately finished, clean and the grounds well maintained. The living area opened up with walk out window/doors to the pool.
There are 2 bedrooms with a double bed in each. Both have their own full bathrooms. In the master bedroom there is also a full tub and a washing machine. If you are there for more than a week, fresh sheets and towels are provided by the owners. The towels which are provided are not beach towels. They are quite small and really just for drying off with. We brought our own beach towels from home for around the pool.
The third sleeping area is a couch that has a single hide a bed that pulls out from underneath it. There is also a full bathroom with shower in the main living area.
We arrived in the afternoon, and Blazenka greeted us. She provided us with keys, and answered any questions we may have had. From the beginning of this experience, Blazenka was amazing. She responded to all my emails within a timely manner, and was very patient and accommodating with all my questions.
Kastel Stari is a wonderful old town, located about 20 minutes from downtown Split. It is less touristy than Split, but you will still find that many people speak at least a little English, and are very friendly. There are many lovely restaurants located close by.
If you are planning a stay here, which is highly recommended, I would also recommend renting a car. While you are within a 15 minute walk (maybe more, we didn't do it) to the beach, the walk back is uphill.
There are several small bakeries (Pekara) and grocery stores within walking distance. If you have dietary restrictions (Celiac), I recommend some of the larger grocery stores, where they do have a much greater selection of everything. There are 2 large ones on your way into Split.
You must go into Split and have a cold beverage in the middle of Diocletian's Palace. A breath taking drive along the coast is also recommended.
Whether you plan on taking in the sites, or relaxing by the pool, this villa is the perfect retreat. The view is breathtaking, the pool is refreshing, the hot tub relaxing. I would certainly recommend this property to everyone. Thank you Blazenka for a great experience in Croatia. I cannot wait to return.
