We recently spent 3 nights in Villa Jelena! It is just outside the city center of Zadar. A good choice if you have a car. There a few restaurants, grocery stores and bakeries within walking distance. The apartment is spacious and clean, and the owners are very helpful! 4 adults comfortably stayed here. I would stay there again and recommend... More

I found this place ocasionally searching at the Internet. This is a great option to stay comfortable at Zadar. A total renewed 2 bedroom apartment in a quiet street just 5 minutes driving to old town zadar (stari grad). Very well decorated and clean with living room, kitchen and everything else needed. Great furniture and very warm atmosphere even with... More

Villa Jelena is a beautiful place. The apartment we are in is decorated fabulously and it is spotlessly clean. We liked it so much, that we have returned for a second visit after travelling south. The owners are very friendly, helpful and kind. There is plenty to see and do in Zadar as well.

We stayed 2 nights on our way home with Ryan Air from Zadar. The rooms are spacious and and very suitable for family of 4 family members. The flat was clean and owner helpful when we arrived. We can reccomend Villa jelena for people who want to have their own household on holiday

This was our favourite accommodation in our journey through Croatia. The apartment is extremely spacious and beautifully decorated. Jelena is so friendly and excited to share her place. I would love to come back here and stay for a longer time-just sitting on the terrace watching the sun go down is breath-taking. The dinner recommendation made was also perfect. We... More

We (my partner, 9 year old son, 11 year old nephew and I) have just returned from a 4 day break at Villa Jelena. The price was for the apartment rather than per person, which made the trip affordable Ì would STRONGLY urge anyone with a similar party to consider. The 5 year old aparment is imaculate and stylish, our... More
