These family run apartments are just beautiful - exactly what you see in the photos. Everything felt new and very well looked after.

Anna and her family were lovely and on hand to help with anything during our stay.

You will need a car as the village is quite secluded, but for a peaceful getaway with stunning views, it's perfect. Within a 10-15 minute drive you will be in neighbouring towns where there is a selection of fantastic restaurants and harbour.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vella Sollis to any friends or family - certainly those without small children

“the best holiday rental in croatia”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in September 2015

we have been to Croatia a couple of times and use holiday rentals as they have the best prices and locations around split. we chose to stay one weel in split city centre and a further week at Villa Sollis.
the villa was beautiful, clean, amazing view and great amenities. it was faultless.
the private beach, hammocks and pool are all smaller than we thought but absolutely stunning and very well cared for. the water is crystal clear in this area and the snorkelling was great.
the owners have a boat they let us borrow and gave us free wine as well! they were the nicest people and very helpful.
theres a lot to see and do in the area. would recommend the zip lining for great views and its fun!
the little town has some reasonable restaurants and the people are lovely. I don't understand why its not more expensive!

“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”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

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
