We count down to the UK referendum on remaining in the European Union with a tour of properties in our favourite countries on the continent.
This week, we turn to Croatia. While some would have the UK leave the EU, Croatia is the latest country to become a member. It’s just as well, as the Adriatic nation may soon be besieged by dragons. No need to worry, though: they’ll only be pretend, because the hit TV show Game of Thrones is filmed here. Clearly, Croatia is on the up and with properties like these, investors should pay attention to this beautiful country.
1. Korcula, Dubrovnik-Neretva – 2 Bed Apartments
Asking Price: £348,008
Here’s a fantastic seafront property within the historic core of Korcula. This two-storey apartment includes a storage room on the ground floor and a shared courtyard. It’s part of a beautiful historic building, with fantastic sea views and a balcony. It is habitable, but in need of renovation. It would be ideal for two smaller apartments, a boutique hotel or a prestige holiday home.
2. Maslinica, Split-Dalmatia – 3 Bed House
Asking Price: £1,392,030
This modern home is located right on the north coast of the island of Šolta. The property enjoys incredible sea views and is right next to the water, but it also comes with a pool. It includes a basement with a garage, as well as two ancillary premises and a covered terrace with a summer kitchen – what more could you want?
3. Vizinada, Istria – 3 Bed House
Asking Price: £460,143
A high quality, detached three-bedroom house, made entirely from Istrian stone. Located in a prime location with a large, tiled, heated swimming pool and sun terraces. The property enjoys sea views over rolling hills of vineyards and olive trees making it a very desirable place. Inside, you’ll find spacious rooms rendered in classic Mediterranean style.
4. Malinska, Primorje-Gorski Kotar – 3 Bed Villa
Asking Price: £378,942
This two-level villa is a high-standing building, which means its three bedrooms have gorgeous, high ceilings. It was built in 2014, but it retains a rustic feel, despite the luxurious amenities, such as the swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The land has a total surface area of 531 m², so there’s plenty of room to entertain outside. This villa is located in a quiet area, and the tranquility is further enhanced by the beautiful sea views that can be enjoyed from the spacious balcony.
5. Otok Solta, Split-Dalmatia – 4 Bed Villa
Asking Price: £425,343
This beautiful new villa is in an attractive location in Necujam on the island of Solta. The villa sits on a peninsula only 200 metres from the sea on both sides, within a quiet area surrounded by several villas. The villa was fully finished in May 2013, built with quality materials and to the highest standards.
6. Trogir, Grad Trogir – 9 Bed Villa
Asking Price: £657,348
That’s right: nine beds! Well, technically, that’s because this property is three apartments with three bedrooms each, but for that price, you’d be lucky to get just one apartment anywhere else. Located on the Trogir riviera, these beautiful luxury villas enjoy fantastic sea views. There are well maintained gardens, a garage and a pool. All this, plus the fact it’s near the beach, and it’s a wonder this property is still on the market.
