Sibenik, as the oldest Croatian coastal town on the Adriatic, has a very rich historical and cultural heritage.
Thanks to its position on the Adriatic Coast, it has always been a good place to live. In the 16th century Sibenik even was the biggest city in Dalmatia by population.
That is why it is not a surprise that Sibenik’s old town is the oldest city town in Croatia.
Scenic medieval town is surrounded by 4 fortresses; behind the wall you can find many very old churches and charming stone narrow streets with a lot of stairs (in total there is 2,851 stairs).
Imagine going on holiday with someone who can't stay still, changes his mood constantly, gets his hands into everything, gets tired easily and lets you know loudly when something isn’t right.
Welcome to travelling with a toddler.Read more...

….and the story of how one can act more sustainable and eat deliciously at the same time - part 2.
In addition to my previous blog “Green restaurants” on Korcula Island, I’ve decided to continue this culinary journey through southern Dalmatia with new tips on rich and healthy foods on Brac Island with its world-renowned Golden Horn beach.
The decision on which part of this beautiful country I would pick was easy, because visiting the Island in 2016 brings back many wonderful memories and still serves as a great source of inspiration :)
Have you ever wondered what life would be if you tried something unusual, unexpected or out of the ordinary? Travelling around the world, exploring new customs & culture and trying new things makes every traveller richer for different experiences and emotions, while you expand your horizon far over your hometown. I’m sure that you have already done some spontaneous things in your life which turned to be the best one you could ever make :) The same is with travelling – if you plan everything and too much in advance you can easily forget to act spontaneous, to put something new on your menu and listen to your heart. At the end you probably don’t even miss this because you don’t know how your luxury vacation could be better if you just did these mistakes.Read more...

In recent times the care and protection of our Planet is gaining more and more attention. And rightly so.
We at the Adriatic Pearls know how important it is to preserve our natural environments and are passionately taking part in this new movement to protect the Planet.
We were woken up to this issue a couple of years ago when we signed the petition against the construction of oil platforms on our most precious natural pearl - this magical Adriatic Sea.

On the way to their luxury vacation in Croatia, some of our guests choose to make a stop and occasionally ask for accommodation.
To make their choice easier, we have selected two of our favourite spots, which in our opinion seem to be the cherry on top of the cake.
As in this year we launched a new project on rental apartments in Ljubljana, we also decided to promote Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia.
Here are some quick facts why these two destinations are definitely wort a visit:Read more...
We have personally visited, tested and fallen in love with each of our house. Inclusion to our selection can’t be bought. At least one member of our team spent a few nights in all our villas, so we know every owner by its first name as well as the name of their children.
Our standards are very high. Over 70% of personally tested properties fail to make it into our selection!
We make you feel special: To us, you are not a number. We have deliberately decided to stay “small” and boutique, to avoid mass tourism and rather concentrate on excellent customer service.
Who will organize not only your holiday home and desired period, but also arrange for the boat rental, transfer, give you information of where the best restaurant in the city is, where the first hospital is and how to reach an island in combination with specific flight details.
What we tell you is 100% true. We hate making things look better. If you have small children and you want to make a reservation for a villa that has rocky beach in front of it, we will tell you that it is not ideal for the toddlers.
You are safe: We are always with you - before your holiday and during your journey and vacation you can reach us on a mobile number 24/7.Read more
