Here is what the owners that are British say about the house and the location :
Omis is an ancient market town set against the majestic Mosor Mountains and where the River Cetina meets the clear water of the Adriatic Sea. It is an ideal base for exploring the Cetina Gorge where hiking, mountaineering, and rafting on the river are popular adventures. The town's well preserved 16th-century fortress affords spectacular views from its hilltop vantage. The town's main claim to fame is as the center of Dalmatia pirate history and folk music (Klapa). The main beach is long and sandy with shallow waters, but there are also stone beaches with natural shade. The town is full of excellent restaurants, serving great food, delicious fish, to the best steaks ever, and mouthwatering pizzas.
We are a British couple from a beautiful part of Northern England. We fell in love with Croatia 9 years ago and wanted to have a home there in the mountains. We eventually found the right house, in the mountains yet overlooking the Adriatic and the beautiful island of Brac. It is in a unique location, down a small lane of only a few houses, in a very natural environment of fir trees and wildflowers, the air is so pure you relax immediately. Although located in the mountain, you are still very close to Omis (6km) and also the Cetina River (7km) and only 19km to the City of Split, where the old part of the city is a palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian and is Unesco protected - must-see location.
We have spent many years renovating the house, inside it is furnished with a mixture of family furniture and beautiful fabrics, that we hope to complement the traditional Croatian house. It has a courtyard with a BBQ, the area is filled with plants and flowers, a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and relax in the evening. The pool hangs on the edge of the mountain with the best views ever.
Although the house is a great place to relax, it is also child-friendly, it has two sitting rooms each with a TV and plenty of space to play. We have six grandchildren who just love their time there.
We hope you enjoy the house and will fall in love with Croatia just as we did.
