The Villa was built in 1971, at the time when there was no road for cars on the island of Čiovo.
Great-grandfather and grandfather were carrying construction material with wooden carts to build a house. It is primarily used as a summer residence of our family.

Great-grandfather worked as a tour guide to the Ancient Salona. His experience is passed on to his offspring. So the grandmother and grandfather had begun working with tourists in the early 80's. Countless groups of Germans, Czechs, Russians, Austrians, Hungarians, Frenchmen, Italians and many others, took turns in this house. Many of them were returning for years in a row.

Then came the turn of the father. He restored the villa and built a porch in the 90s. According to this porch, residence was given its present name. Today, the Villa is left to the fourth generation of the family since its construction. We made its last transformation in Spring 2010 and now here it is: in its walls is inscribed the story of growing up so many generations of family lineage through various friendly gatherings, family celebrations to teenage parties. If you take a better look at the house, you will find many objects from the past.

The rest of this story is left to Your emotions and memories.

Trogir is a small medieval city at the seaside, which inspired many; especially travel writers, scientists and authors. Its troubled past and prominent stone buildings played a great role in its inscription to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Since Villa Verandah is near the city, you will have the opportunity to enjoy yourselves by going out in the evening and walking through the small streets of the city during the summer Culture festival. It offers klapas’ concerts, International Tenor Competition, museum exhibitions, play performances in the Duke’s Palace, music nights on the city square and many fun events for the youth.

Split is one of the oldest cities in the area. Its growth became particularly rapid in the 7th century, when the inhabitants of the destroyed Greek and Roman metropolis Salonae (present-day Solin) took refuge within its walls. The lovely ruins of Solin outside the city can still be explored today.
In the Middle Ages, Split was an autonomous commune.

Many of Split's historical and cultural buildings can be found within the walls of Diocletian's Palace. In addition, numerous museums, the National Theatre, and old churches and other archeological sites in the Split region make it cultural attraction.

Solin developed on the location of ancient town of Salona which was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian. After the arrival of Avars and Slavs in the 7 th-century town was destroyed, and its refugees moved to settlement in and around Diocletian's palace, "Spalatum" (Split), turning it into a fortified town. In the Early Middle Ages Solin was part of the Croatian territory and played an important role in Medieval Croatian state, being one of capital cities.

Tourism is based on numerous archaeological sites and Solin's distinctive image that comes from many urban parks along the Jadro.

Klis Fortress is probably best known for its defense against the Ottoman invasion of Europe in the early 16th century. Croatian captain Petar Kružić led the defense of the fortress against a Turkish invasion and siege that lasted for more than two and a half decades. During this defense, as Kružić and his soldiers fought without allies against the Turks, the military faction of Uskoks was formed, which later became famous as an elite Croatian militant sect. Ultimately, the defenders were defeated and the fortress was occupied by the Ottomans in 1537.

Today, Klis Fortress contains a museum where visitors to this historic military structure can see an array of arms, armor, and traditional uniforms.

Omiš was well known in the past by the Corsairs of Almissa (Omiški gusari) whose Sagittas (ships), brought fame to them because they were built for attack and fast retrieval into the mouth of the Cetina River, protecting the town from foreign invaders. At a very early date, neighbours of the Corsairs of Almissa, the highlanders of the Poljica Principality (Poljička Republika), became their friends and allies. This allowed them to harass the seaborne trade, without fear of a sudden attack from inland.

The Cetina River is a great place for those who like active holidays: free climbing, cycling, tennis, football (soccer), basketball, paragliding, 9-pin bowling, windsurfing, water-skiing, sea kayaking, scuba diving...

Primošten is famous for its huge and beautiful vineyards. A photo of the vineyards of Primošten hung in the UN center in New York. Apart from its vineyards, Primošten is also known for the traditional donkey race that takes place there every summer. The largest beach in Primošten is called Raduča, and its smaller part, Mala Raduča, is voted one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Croatia. The area's vineyards are currently under consideration to become a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It is built on a hill and is dominated by the parish church of St. George which was built in 1485 and restored in 1760 close to the local graveyard from which a unique view spreads to the sea and the surroundings.

Unlike other cities along the Adriatic coast, which were established by Greeks, Illyrians and Romans, Šibenik was founded by Croats. Excavations of the castle of Saint Michael, have since proven that the place was inhabited long before the actual arrival of the Croats. It was mentioned for the first time under its present name in 1066 in a Charter of the Croatian King Petar Krešimir IV[2] and, for a period of time, it was a seat of this Croatian King. For that reason, Šibenik is also called "Krešimirov grad" (Krešimir's city).

It is the oldest native Croatian town on the eastern shores of the Adriatic. The central church in Šibenik, the Cathedral of St. James, is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Skradinski buk is a massive, clear, natural pool with high waterfalls at one end and cascades at the other, located in the Krka National Park in Croatia. It is the lowest of the three sets of waterfalls formed along the Krka river. In an area 400 m in length and 100 m in width there are 17 waterfalls and the total difference in height between the first and the last falls is 47.7 m. Skradinski buk is considered to be one of the most beautiful calcium carbonate waterfalls in Europe.

Inside the park is the island of Visovac which was founded during the reign of Louis I of Hungary, home to the Roman Catholic Visovac Monastery founded by the Franciscans in 1445 near Miljevci village.
