Vila Feniks is located in Grad Kastela (old Kastela) which belongs to the world heritage. We rebuilt our house in 2015 according to the rules of the Croatian heritage protection and equipped with modern facilities such as WiFi, rain showers and luxury box springs. On the ground floor is an independent living unit with luxury bathroom, kitchen, double bed and seating. The stairs outside take you to the 1st floor, a living floor with bathroom, kitchen, dining table, sitting area and TV. The sofa can be converted into a double bed (130x195). On the 2nd floor a spacious bedroom with a luxurious double box spring of 2.10 long and an extra single bed (folding bed) and a bathroom with sink and toilet.
The house has a sea view and in 12 steps you are on the riva. In Kastel Novi you will find no high-rise buildings, but characteristic houses, plenty of cozy terraces and good restaurants with a sea view. Along the riva are several village beaches with small-scale catering and play facilities for the children, including trampolines and pedal boats. You can get your groceries in the small neighborhood supermarket 200 meters from the house or go to the market 400 meters from the house. You will find a bakery every few hundred meters.
Drink your first cappucino of the day on one of the terraces among the locals, for 12 kuna (1.60 euros).
Kastel Novi is located between Trogir and Split, a 5-minute drive from Split Airport. From April to October, klm, easyjet and transavia fly on split almost daily.
The area surrounding Kastel Novi offers plenty of opportunities for excursions. Get on the bus to Trogir (10 minutes), a beautiful medieval town with a beautiful boulevard from where boat excursions depart to Blue Lagoon / Solta Island (recommended!). In Trogir, take the boat to Split with a lovely sundeck or take the bus from Kastel Novi). Split is a beautiful walled Roman city with ferries to the islands of Brac (with the beautiful beach Zlatni Rat in Bol) and Hvar (lavender/island).
And don't forget to explore the 7 Kastela's, walking or cycling along the riva.
If you would like to explore the area further afield, rent a car or choose one of the many excursions on offer. Think of the Krkra waterfalls, Salona (ruins old Roman city), the river Cetina where you can go rafting and perhaps the Kornatie islands. For those with a bit more time, the walled fortified city of Dubrovnik, the most beautiful city in Croatia, can be reached in 3 hours by car or by one of the ferries.
