Stone made paths lead to the beach where sun loungers are provided. A large jetty provides a boat mooring. From that side of the villa there is a beautiful view of the mainland and the town of Zadar.

This was a beautiful place on its own island in the midst of the Adriatic sea. We thought it was a beautiful eco build - and immensely spacious and well designed. We so enjoyed the experience of boating out from the mainland to the villa, and going to sleep surrounded by the sounds of the seas lapping around the shores. It was an unique experience - peaceful and incredibly beautiful with crystalline seas, fish swimming around and a sense of being immersed in nature. Due to its close surroundings to nature, we had quite a few mouse visitors in the villa during our stay, but managed to ignore them most of the time!
Fantastic - very near to Biograd for ice creams and good restaurants along the seafront. We loved listening to the sea organ in Zadar!
