fabulous BBQ area with a huge table, perfect for lazy summer evenings with some very more-ish, local, organic wine!

“My apologies for the delay in replying! I’ve spoken to most people in the group, and the overall view was definitely that we had a
great time! The villa is in a fantastic location, and is very well equipped, whilst Trogir and the various trips available offer plenty of
choice of activities. It was a very good holiday overall. Regards” T Parsons
“We found the villa on the internet with a little help from Denise, I had explained what we needed and the make up of our very
strange group. (who have been holidaying together for 15 years or so!). Croatian Gems were excellent at responding to our
numerous calls and emails for clarification and things to do. The villa was fabulous, even in May we had excellent weather and
were able to take advantage of the whole area, Matko was always on had to look after our needs and we had a brilliant time on
the days boat, swimming off the boat and eating fresh fish. The ferry and buses suited us fine with only the occasional need for a
taxi or boat lift! Swimming straight from the villa was amazing, just knowing you could run back in for a cold drink or warm towel if
cooler. The sunsets were amazing too! Trogir and Split are both wonderful places to visit, in fact we'd love to be there again now!
Is the villa available in mid September or will the weather have changed do you think by then? We have elderly folk who would
love it too! All the best” Natalie F
“I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had in Croatia, the villa was amazing and Matko and his partner were the
perfect hosts and were extremely welcoming and helpful, from taking us food shopping and helping us translate and pack to
sorting out a minibus driver for our party of 11 all weekend. Trogir was a beautiful part of the world and I will definitely be visiting
Croatia again. Thanks again for all your help in organizing our trip I will definitely recommend your company to anyone visiting
Croatia.” Kate 2010
“Just to let you know that we are all home after a great holiday and to thank you for sorting us all out. We would certainly
recommend Croatia Gems to anyone. The car hire was excellent. We were particularly impressed with the villa. I would love a
copy of your next brochure 2011 as we would love to do Hvar and Korcula.” Anne S 2010
