are situated between Ploce and Klek about 3 kilometres from the
to Dubrovnik. Our rental is very reasonable per person and the cost of
a week's holiday together with airfare and car hire for 4 persons or
more can be between £300 and £500 - but less
with 8 people.
nearest large airport is Dubrovnik - which takes one and a half
hours along a fantastic
coastal road, reminiscent of the California coast route 1. Split
approximately 2 hrs away via the coast road, but it may be quicker now they have opened the new motorway from Ploce.
Unfortunately only a few of the cheap
airlines fly into Croatia (Easyjet to Split and Dubrovnik for example),
Airways do have reasonably priced flights
to Split and Dubrovnik from Gatwick (say £150 return).
Croatian Airlines fly from Heathrow, but they usually fly via Zagreb
and not direct to Split or Dubrovnik and they are usually more
expensive. You can fly with Rynair to Ancona or Bari and take a
fast ferry across the Adriatic. This only works in summer as
there are only overnight ferries in winter, but you can take your car
across. There are charter flights in the
summer - for example Sunsail might have some spaces on their
fly to Lublijana in Slovenia, from whence you can get a train to Zagreb
and then fly (cheaply with Croatian) from there. It is at least a
7 hour car journey from Lublijana, but the new motorway to Split is
excellent with very little traffic on it. You could also drive
out from England, but that will take 2-3 days through Germany, with at
least 2 night stops.
Car hire from Dubrovnik for a week
small car costs around £130, more for a larger car, and you
will need air-conditioning. This is actually very reasonable for
4 people if you book in advance on the internet.
regular buses which go past on the
main road from Split to Dubrovnik and they will stop at the corner at
the junction, but it is then about 3 kilmetres to walk or get a lift to
Kremena (downhill). There are no trains going to Dubrovnik.
The train services seem to be slow and somewhat unreliable.
nearest large town is Metkovic - which has almost all the facilities
you might require, including a railway (unfortunately connected to
