Interaction with Guests
Your host Josip is great source of touristic tips - where to go, what to do and how to get there. Just ask him, he will gladly help you out!
Our house is on south, quiet area with nice view of semi-open sea and, most of all, green island Šolta. The view is relaxing and meditative, the street is quiet and ends "in the sea" or, better to say, on the beach.
Our closest beach is rocks leveled with concrete, used by local people and guests from the street. It has nice friendly feeling and we're keeping it neat and clean. Close to it is beach with pebble, good for getting kids adjusted to the sea or learning how to swim.
If you prefer, sunbathing is best on the balcony or the garden. Being only 50m from the sea, its easy to walk down to swim whenever - at dawn, daytime, sunset or nights.
Čiovo is a special island in beautiful Dalmatia. Actually its not really an island! It's connected to mainland with 2 bridges through Trogir. So, from Čiovo, you can visit Trogir or Split by car or by boat.
Not long ago, most housings on the island were vacation houses of people from Split or Trogir. Lately it was found by many European tourists and it grew as touristic destination and got fast up on "Adriatic's top list".
Okrug Gornji is biggest and most popular touristic center on the island. The village off-season is quiet and gets crowded during summer. Most amenities are around central beach. Most supermarkets, restaurants, bars and clubs are there. Tho true center is nearby uphill with post office, ambulance, pharmacy...
It can be quiet when you want it or crowdy. There are many quiet beaches or long pebble beach at center of the island - with water/beach sports days and bars with DJ's at nights. There are all kinds of restaurants, from pizzeria\'s to sea food specialists.
Of course Trogir and Split also offer many nice cultural sites, as quality restaurants or night life.
Tho house is in a quiet area of the island, but the central beach with many facilities is only 1km away. Daytime there are beach and sports amenities - for kids and adults. At nights the bars turn into busy night beach clubs with DJ's.
Beautiful towns from the UNESCO's World Heritage list are nearby: Trogir (4km), Split (30km), Šibenik (50km).
Our guests often enjoy day tips to other destinations, like:
National park Krka 64 km away, National park Kornati (boat trip).
Those are only most popular destinations. Depending on your preference, there's lots to do and see!
There is public bus in the area and taxi service, but not recommendable. Own or rental car is strongly advised.

About the Host, Donka & Josip
We're retired couple from Zagreb, lately spending May to October in our summer house on island Čiovo.
After working in banks in various towns in Europe, we've decided to share our house with worldwide guests since 2011. Since then we met many fun worldwide guests, which feels like traveling without moving.
As we are a bit internet shy, don't be surprised if our daughter Mina answers instead. She is helping out with anything before your arrival.
