  • Overview

    Croatia is an extraordinary country boasting towering mountains, verdant crops of coastline and charming seaside towns. Its unique coastline is packed with pristine beaches with clear sapphire waters, protected by the thousands of islands that dot the coast.

    Croatia is fast becoming one of the most popular luxury holiday destinations in Europe. Whilst it was once caught up in conflict, there’s little evidence of this today. Now there’s the charm of a destination on the up, with plenty of rustic, traditional touches. Luxury Croatia holidays can offer something for everyone from beach filled family holidays to exploring well-preserved history and scenic natural habitats.

    Croatia boasts a fascinating and complex history with Neolithic inhabitants dating back to 30,000BC. As a nation, it has claimed independence since 1991. Today you can see its conflicted past in the marvellous ramparts of Dubrovnik and the immaculately preserved World Heritage Sites dotted around the country.

    Climates throughout the country can vary, but in general, Croatia can be relied upon to offer plenty of sun and temperatures often reaching 25°C and above in the summer months. September is still warm but generally the rainiest month. Winter on the coast doesn’t tend to get colder than 5°C but further inland it can easily drop below freezing. For a month by month guide to weather and events read our post on the best time to visit Croatia.

    The coastal and inland differences extend to the county’s cuisine. Coastal areas feature more seafood as well as Italian inspired dishes thanks to its proximity to the Italian coast. Around Istria, the Italian influence is most evident, with pizzas, risottos and famous wild truffles. Inland there are more eastern European flavours with hearty red meats and vegetables. Look out for the pljeskavica, a hamburger like minced meat served in a flatbread bun.
