Best for On a budget - Expert review of Villa Varos

Split’s best bed and breakfast – friendly, family run and located on the edge of the old town.

Staying at this welcoming b&b, in a traditional Dalmatian stone building with green wooden window shutters, really makes you feel like a local. You’ll find it in Varoš, a peaceful residential quarter made up of winding cobbled streets and fishermen’s cottages dating back to the 17th century, just a five-minute walk from the busy old town.

Location: 

In a narrow side street in pedestrian-only Varoš, on a hillside between the old town and Marjan peninsular. All the city’s main cultural attractions are within a 15-minute walk, as are the airport bus and the ferry port.

Bedrooms: 

The eight rooms are simple but comfortable, with whitewashed walls, wooden floors and heavy wooden beds and wardrobes. There’s also a spacious apartment combining a bedroom, bathroom with Jacuzzi, fully-equipped kitchen and living room, plus a small terrace where you can sit out at a table with comfy wicker chairs.

Public areas: 

Breakfast is served round the corner at Konoba Leut – one of my favourite places for morning coffee, with a sunny terrace overlooking the wooden fishing boats in Matejuška harbour.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast at Konoba Leut is made-to-order, with fresh coffee from an espresso machine. Villa Varoš guests also get a reduction on daytime meals here – expect typical Dalmatian home cooking, with tasty dishes such as škampi buzara (shrimps in a rich garlic, wine and parsley sauce).

Leisure facilities: 

None, but just a five-minute walk uphill you’ll arrive at Marjan, a verdant pine-scented peninsular crisscrossed by footpaths, affording fantastic views over the old town and down onto the sea.

Service: 

The friendly and helpful owner is a great source of advice about things to do and see in the area.
