Everything you need for a great and careless vacation in Makarska
One of many great features of Villa Ivka is convenience of accommodation. It is located in a great neighbourhood, ideal for a family stay. The building is situated near the main road, but in one of the side streets, so there is very little traffic around. Grocery shops, pharmacy and a bakery are only a couple of hundred of meters away from the doorstep. There is free parking, WIFI, an outdoor grill and a large swimming pool which is a great choice for those lazy days when you just don't want to go anywhere - not even to the beach.
Speaking of pools, Villa Ivka boasts with a wonderful one. It is quite large, and can be a fantastic area where your children can enjoy themselves swimming and splashing around, all while you watch them from the deck chair. With local meat and veggies sizzling on the outdoor grill, your lazy summer afternoons will be complete. We reccommend you make an effort and get up really early one morning and hit the town market. Buy some local food, (smoked) meats, tomatoes, zucchinis, watermelons, figs or melons.
Prepare a fantastic dinner for your family or friends. Word of advice: melon bits+prosciutto or figs+honey+prosciutto are one of those unlikely but amazing pairings that will wow everyone at the table. By the way, do yourself a favour and buy a bottle of proper homemade olive oil. A liter goes for around 100 kuna/14 euro. You can use it for cooking or getting that sweet, dark, mediterranean tan on – your choice.
Sunbathing can be done on one of Villa Ivka's balconies, at the pool side, or on the beach. Makarska Riviera has the reputation of being blessed with kilometres of fine pebble beaches – and Villa Ivka sits around 500 meters from the nearest bit of heaven. Find your place under the sun, or better yet, under the shade of pine trees. It gets really hot here in the middle of summer (+30 degrees Celsius), and you will want some sun protection. Bring lots of water, and preferably some fruit – peaches and plums will be in season, they are loaded with vitamins and healthy sugars, AND they are easy to carry in a bag. If you remember to take an insulated cooler bag, you will enjoy the cold fruit all day long.

Eating out is an option for many of the guests who stay on the Riviera - Villa Ivka offers a fully equipped kitchen and has great dining areas, but let's face it: you will be on vacation and probably will not want to do the dishes afterwards. :) No problem there, you can always eat out, and Villa Ivka is located about 5 minutes from one of Makarska's great restaurants.
