We had a great time in Croatia at Silvana's apartment and particularly enjoyed the proximity to the sea, the terrace with a view over the lovely garden, and the grapes that we could pick directly in front of our door. We did not have a car, but it was easy to take the bus to Zadar and we did two day trips (ferry to one of the islands / hiking), which was easy to find out about as well and not expensive.
Silvana was very welcoming, checked on our well-being and shared fresh delicious figs with us. We can only recommend her apartment.
(Slight remark: People with back problems might find the couch and the two small beds in the children's room a little uncomfortable.)
