Decorno made me do it

Okay, Decorno opened her mouth about summer 2008 and the next thing I knew I was sending a deposit on an apartment.

Destination: Croatia

Reason: Its one of the most beautiful places I've visited.

Its worth mentioning that my husband and I are completely against going to the same country twice. Having said that, we went to Croatia last summer, swam and snorkeled in crystal blue water, sunbathed nude on deserted beaches and ate fresh fish like pigs for 25euro
together. And we did it all in mid August smack dab in the middle of peak season. Did I mention we can even get there by car?

Plus, where else can you get an apartment like this...






And have a 360degree view from the terrace like this...




Of things like this...








All for less than 500euro? Nowhere. At least no place as safe, clean and accessible.

Croatia is hot. If you have the chance, Go. If you don't, know that you are seriously missing out.

PS I've rented the annex. The main house which sleeps 2 in the bedroom and 2 on a sofa bed is still available and is also quite nice.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. each year I want to go to Croatia but I've never done it.
This time , with your picture I'm telling me I have to do it.
Because or thanks of you I think this summer , this house is going to be full.
May I ask you how can I make a reservation there.
I hope the price will not go up with your wonderful and I'm sure successfull post

Wow, so I can add Croatia to my list. I'm already (mentally) planning (read: wishing for) a vacation to Slovenia, so why not bop on over to Croatia while I'm at it? How were you treated there? Did you get "out" much with the locals?

Gorgeous!! I have heard such wonderful things about this destination for years, and still have yet to go. I'm due for a trip... perhaps Italy, Greece and Croatia next time ... :)

I love Croatia, I lived there back in the late 90's when I was in the Army. Rijeka and Dubrovnik are my favorite!!!
