Our stay at the Villa Culina with 13 people was nearly perfect. There is only little to criticize. First the positive aspects.
The house offers everything you need and everything, despite the electronics in the pool, was working. The gym is fully functional and one can really do some exercises there. All in all, we did not miss something important. The villa was very clean and we felt very safe, as you can close the gates to completely lock the property.
A big table next to the pool invites you to spend most of the time there. Due to the outdoor kitchen with a dishwasher and fridge, one is not required to go inside the house most of the time. There are many comfortable sunbeds and parasols. The house is divided into 3 separate flats, each with its own kitchen and bathroom. The one on the ground floor offers the biggest kitchen, which invites us to cook bigger meals. It could be a bit bigger though, as we were lacking some big pots and enough hot plates. Therefore cooking outside or making a barbecue is more fun. The beds were comfy, but only one blanket per bed was available. A dedicated room for partying with thick walls provides the possibility to be a bit louder at night, without disturbing neighbors or people inside the house already sleeping.
The location offers the possibility to visit Zadar or one of the many beaches nearby, all within a 30-minute drive by car.
The things to complain about are minor. The big street directly next to the villa is quite noisy, as cars drive 60 - 70 km/h even at night. A few trashcans in the bathrooms would be nice and some more kitchen towels. Due to the high walls and hedge next to the pool, to block the noisy street, the pool was in the sun for only a few hours a day. Therefore it was a few degrees colder than the sea, For the big table and benches outside some pillows to sit on would also be nice.
Despite all this, we very much enjoyed our stay and can only recommend the Villa Culina!
Thanks also to Marijan for the warm welcome and helpfulness in all situations.
