Zrinka's "Charming villa Amare" - a is a gem in the dalmatian interior!
We visited Zrinka's place with 14 of our friends and it was just amazing! When we arrived after allmost 12 hours of car drive Zrinka welcomed us with a tour on the beautiful house and a huge welcome lunch - something like 20 minutes and we felt like home!
The location consists of 4 interior-areas and a lovely exterior-area:
- two bungalows near the (truely wonderful, clean, big and refreshing) pool
- a 2 story stone house on the upper level of the complex with a big kitchen, a big table and lots more (we always had our meals there as a group)
- an attached section with grill (you can make great BBQ in there, even when the weather is bad) and a gym.
Every house was very clean and looked as new! When we took the tour on the different rooms at the arrival, we all were just "Wow!": There is everything you need. Each house/section/story has its own (super-clean) bathroom, a fully equiped kitchen and a living room - whereever you are - it is clean, stylish and cozy.
Zrinka was also the best host one can wish for! She and her family were always there for us, when we needed advice or help on anything. They also provided us with fresh vegetables and herbs from the own garden, when we had dinner on the stove.
Whenever there was a local event Zrinka told or texted us about it - that was totally helpful, since Imotski is not very touristic and it's hard to get a glipmse on local activities. Zrinka is a great host, always super friendly, relaxed and obliging - we all liked her very much!
Imotski as a town is calm and just the right place to be if you want to avoid tourist groups and the loud stress that comes with it. When you explore the city you hardly see other tourists, except maybe if you visit the stunning Blue Lake (take a hike down there and enjoy the clear water!!!). Nevertheless there are lots of tiny bars where you can hang out, have a party with locals (we did at times), or just have a good time drinking and talking with others. When you visit Imotski you definetly excperience Dalmatia more from the eyes of a local, which we really appreciated! When you still want to see the oacen and the tourist hotspots there, its just a 35 Minute drive through the hillside and a tunnel to the coast.
All in all every one of us had an amazing time at Zrinka's place!
We had funny poolparties, tasty BBQs, relaxed conversations on the terrace and at the beautiful pool area, good night sleeps in the cozy beds and - I almost forgot - stunning views on the Biokovo mountains!
We all would love to visit Imotski again but just under one condition:
Staying at Zrinka's - it's just awesome!
