My partner and I spent the last 5 nights of our 2-week trip to Croatia at Villa Lavandula in Trogir. I have extremely high standards and cannot think of one problem with the Villa. It is in a beautiful location (note that it is about a 15 minute walk from the centre, but this allows it to have beach access - if it was in the centre itself, it would not have its seaside spot), spotless, huge apartments with lots of storage space, all modern amenities. But that is only a very small part of the story. Because the owners - Josip, Anita and their daughter Vinka - are actually the attraction here. From the moment we met them at the harbour in Split, they could not do enough for us. At any moment, we could be shuttled to a beach, to their private beach, to the town centre (to save about a 700m walk in 36 degree heat!), to a ferry, wherever. We also took two day trips with Josip - one to Krka National Park and one to Mostar in Bosnia (on the way to the Dubrovnik airport). Josip introduced us to beautiful and untouched locations in Croatia, took us to fantastic local eateries (some were farms - not restaurants!) and gave us history lessons throughout our stay. We also chose to have dinner at the villa one night - complete with homemade wine, olive oil, everything fresh, organic, healthy and delicious. It was difficult to say goodbye to Josip as he dropped us off at the airport in Dubrovnik and I am already thinking about when we can return in olive-picking season. Croatia is a beautiful country, Trogir is a beautiful town, but the Pavkovic family are the true gems that we found in Croatia.
