Reviews for Croatia sailing holiday, land based accommodation


review 27 Aug 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were so many it's hard to know where to start but the beginning has to be hospitality of Zoran and Blazenca who were our hosts for the week. They are engaging, caring people who went out of their way to make out holiday truly wonderful. The staff who work for them are equally good in making sure that we were well looked after. This great hospitality provides a framework for some wonderful adventures - on boats, exploring Mljet and Hvar and waters around Korcula and in cars, through villages such as Blato and Lumbarda. We swam in clear and still waters including the bay just 2 minutes walk from Villa Sokol. And we didn't have one meal that wasn't fantastic. Whether it was freshly made pancakes for breakfast on our balcony or freshly cooked caught and cooked fish at an agriourism restaurant, the tastes were all fresh and delicious.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Relax and take up every offer that Zoran makes in terms of where to go, what to eat, what to see and what to do.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We were providing work for Zoran and his extended family members in the village. We were eating food that had been grown in people's gardens, cultivated on people's farms they way their parents and grandparents had done, fished sustainably by local fisherman in small boats. We felt as if our presence was activitely contributing to the sustainability of people who wanted to keep living in the same houses and communities that their families had always lived in.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant. This is one of the best holiday weeks we (me, my sister, a friend who joined us from London) have experienced.
