“Perfect holiday!”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We really loved this villa. The view os stunning and peaceful, the apartment is clean, light and modern. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was great!
For most of the week we had the pool to ourselves, used the sauna and small gym but the best part was the little beaches with sun loungers and hammocks. The snorkelling here is incredible and the owners are happy for you to borrow their two man kayak and explore.
There are also several really lovely restaurants close by.
Makarska is about 30 mins drive away, it's ok, nothing very exciting but Omis is 20 minutes in the opposite direction (towards split) and it's lovely. You have to go zip lining of you go to Omis! The view is lovely.
The only downside is how far the apparent is from Split (50 mins) or Dubrovnik (90 mins) but if your going to vela sollis it's more about relaxing and spending quality time with loved ones. Also the owners are lovely, friendly and helpful!

“Exceeded all our expectations”

My girlfriend and I visited Vela Sollis for a week and despite having returned only this morning, we have already recommended the trip to friends and family! The pictures do not to the apartments and facilities justice - as well as being all well maintained, clean and spacious, Vela Sollis felt modern without not fitting into the non-touristy Croatian setting. Being only 25 minutes from Omis (which has the river Cetina, a fortress, beaches, restaurants etc), 50 minutes from Split Airport and just over 1 hour to Krka National Park meant we were able to mix in a relaxing holiday snorkelling and swimming with seeing the tourist bits that drew us to Croatia. We would definitely recommend getting a car if you were planning to stay at Vela Sollis as it makes seeing more of Croatia far easier! Having said this, in the week we stayed alone we managed to find 3 local restaurants that ran free pick-up and drop-off services which was ideal for evenings out.

What really impressed us about Vela Sollis though was how helpful and friendly our hosts, Ana and Josef, were through our stay! From the bottle of wine on our first night in the apartment to taking us on a speedboat tour down the coast to a cliff-jumping spot to even offering us to stay another night, they were the defining feature of the holiday that made us want to return.

We will no doubt be continuing to recommend Vela Sollis and will hopefully be returning in the future as there was so much more in the local area we didn't have time to explore!

Liked best: Location felt like we were on a private spot of the coast with nobody else around but we were still within walking distance of the village itself and a 5 minute drive of supermarkets and restaurants

“Simple Breathtaking”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Elegantly furnished, spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen, nice balcony, from which the view is amazing! We really enjoyed the sauna and the pool when it was raining.There are some steps leading to the sea, a bit of exercise, but definitely worth it. The sea shore is rocky, but you can find small pebbled bays as well.
The hosts were really nice and friendly. I definitely suggest the place for everyone, even for families with small kids as you can find small,shallow and protected bays for toddlers as well. Though not recommended for people with walking disability or in wheelchair because of the many steps leading to the apartment and the sea.
I have been going to Croatia on holidays since I was 12, and most of the times we have stayed in apartment, and I can say this apartment was one of the best we have ever stayed! :)

“Quality, serene apartments.”

If you are looking to explore the beautiful and fascinating Split area of Croatia then this is a great base. The apartments are situated on the coastal road between Split and the Makarska Riviera, with Split and airport being around 45 minutes to an hours drive away, and our favourite town Brela with its lovely beach and restaurants a short 10 minute drive. The apartments themselves are large and well equipped to a high standard. Each apartment has a sea view to die for, and views of the beautiful neighbouring island of Brac. There is also a small indoor pool and gym/sauna area on the ground floor. The helpful owners Josip and Ana have put a lot of thought into the development and have landscaped the path down to the small rocky beach where you can relax by a crystal clear sea in deck chairs and hammock. Next door is a larger pebbly beach which was great for the children. As a family we enjoyed paddling around on the kayak and Josip and the speedboat could also be hired to visit Brac. Boat trips can also be made from Brela, and several restuarants operate a free taxi service so you can leave the hire car. I would recommend Konoba Ivandica Dvori in Brela with its wonderful terrace and mountain/sea views. This is NOT a lively busy development but if you like a peaceful and relaxing environment and can hire a car to explore the local area then these apartments make a delightful base.
