Luxury villas on the Adriatic coast

We are pleased to offer you two new luxury villas for rent on the Adriatic coast in Dalmatia, near Zadar on the outskirts of Petrcane.

The villas, built to the design of renowned Czech architect Zdeněk Franek, are clad in white Brač limestone and together with a third private villa form a beautiful ensemble in the style of contemporary modern architecture. They are located just 10 km from Zadar, the historical, cultural and gastronomic centre of the area. The villas are situated on the Adriatic coast. Each has a private pool and terraces for outdoor seating, sunbathing and barbecues. A large roof terrace provides privacy and evening seating with a glass of wine and a beautiful view of the sea and the city of Zadar. The centre of Petrcane, with its many restaurants, bars, snack bars, shops and attractions for children and adults, is just 300 m away on foot.

The stay is ideal for families with children or a group of friends who want to have the advantage of the privacy of their own villa while enjoying the closeness of the town and entertainment.

A new dimension of holiday

The villas have been designed to offer you the most comfortable stay and relaxation. The houses are fully equipped and air conditioned. The total area of each villa including terraces is 280 m2.

We spent a long weekend in the villa in October. Luxury not only in equipment (each room has its own bathroom – so it is suitable for a larger family or group), but also in atmosphere. A short walk to the crystal clear sea, private pool, sunsets. Nearby, the beautiful Royal Vineyard with wine tasting. Excursions to Zadar, Nin, Paklenica or the Krka waterfalls.


Staying in Villa Petrcane was a real holiday for us. The calming architecture of the property, the complete privacy for three families and the amenities better than one has at home 🙂 There is air conditioning everywhere, but we didn’t need it, which as asthmatics and allergy sufferers we appreciated. Evening swimming in the pool after a day in the sea was perfect. So did breakfast or dinner on the upper terrace overlooking the sea. After a very long time, the accommodation actually looked better than on the websites of prestigious travel and accommodation agencies. Thank you for the perfect service during the whole stay and we look forward to coming to Villa Petrcane again as soon as possible!


We arrived at one of the villas just after its completion in July 2022 with our two children. The first view was stunning and it was immediately clear that the architect had breathed beauty, flair and majesty into the villas from the outside, as if letting a gust of wind lean against them in a line perpendicular to the shore. The perfectly fitting façade of local stone echoed the century-old houses and cobblestones of the nearby historic centre of Zadar. Beautiful! The lush greenery of the irrigated garden caught our eye as we moved from the spacious, enclosed parking lot for several cars to the interior of the house.

Here we understood that the architect must have been very much in tune with the owners. The use of the best materials combined with generous spaces on the one hand, but at the same time with simple and clean lines on the other, gave us after a while a feeling of incredible well-being and balance. Each of the four double bedrooms, was actually a separate apartment with perfect facilities and the common generous living room connected to the kitchen and terrace offered enough space for more than 8 people. The crystal clear swimming pool with fully automatic maintenance at one time actually seemed like a given, which not only the children will immediately try.

Hard to decide then when to leave for the almost private entrance to the beautifully clear sea, just a few metres from the gate. If you like long sandy beaches or healing mud, you can walk about 20 minutes from the house. We found everything in the villas, in fact maybe more than we managed to try during our stay. I definitely recommend checking out the huge rooftop terrace where you can watch the sky full of stars or the twinkling lights of nearby Zadar after sunset.

But if you do feel like venturing away, you won’t even need a car to walk comfortably to the local promenade. Here, in addition to the beach and floating attractions, you’ll find excellent restaurants with friendly service. It doesn’t matter whether you’re being treated to a delicious pizza by the kids or a great fish delicacy. And on the way back to the incredibly quiet place where the villas are located, a stop at the ice cream stand is almost obligatory.

I could write for a long time, but better to experience them for yourself. We were delighted and highly recommend it.


We stayed at the villa in July 2022. We had 3 children with us and we were all very happy. The villa was perfectly clean and we had everything we needed there for both cooking and dining. The kids also appreciated the kids dishes and especially the pool right off the living room. The water in the pool was still very refreshing due to the brac stone tiling. There were sun loungers, a barbecue and comfortable seating. We also liked that it was only a few steps to the sea from the villa and also a short walk to the campsite where there are restaurants, a playroom for the kids and various trampolines and other uses. We also had a small trampoline at the villa so the kids were in their element. We were absolutely blown away by the materials used, everything looked high quality, elegant and very pleasant. There was also a built-in coffee machine, so we really didn’t miss anything at all. There was also furniture on the terrace where there was a beautiful view of the sea and a shower to freshen up, which is also available in the car park. It came in very handy on the way from the sea. The parking at the house is also a nice bonus. We definitely recommend a stay in the villa!!!


We spent one week in Petrcanevillas last summer. A beautiful place halfway between the historic towns of Zadar and Nin. Amazing architecture of monolithic white houses made of local stone. Meticulous interior workmanship, spacious rooms, full amenities to a high standard. A few steps to the sea on a private beach. In the morning you buy fresh fish at the market in Petrcane, at noon you put on the grill, alternating diving in the clear sea or lazing in the pool by the house. Petrčane has plenty of restaurants serving local and international cuisine, but be sure to try the delicious fish, meat and wine at the romantic Konoba restaurant among the vineyards above the town. You will remember your holiday in Petrcanevillas for a long time.


A week of pampering, luxury and inspiration in a beautiful villa. We were at the end of the season and although the weather was no longer stable, we had a wonderful time, starting with morning coffee from a great machine and ending in the evening grilling fresh fish from the Zadar market on the terrace, reading novels from the present library, watching movies on TV…
Everywhere is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is excellently equipped – among other things a large amount of porcelain and glassware, induction hob, large fridge and separate freezer. In each room a bathroom and large storage spaces, the beds are really very comfortable and we appreciated the nice and beautiful bedding. The house is very elegant, the lighting perfect, the shading awnings with electric power cool! Petrcane is a nice village with beautiful beaches, restaurants, two shops and vineyards with great wine nearby. Nearby Zadar, the village of Nin is worth a visit more than once. Thank you very much and we will be happy to return :))
