Everyone has different definitions of paradise. For some, it's a tropical beach at the edge of the world, far from the bustling big cities and hectic metropolises. For others, it's living in a high-class apartment in an upscale city, with luxurious shopping districts and Michelin-starred restaurants abound. And for a lot of people, it's a luxury villa in Croatia
with its own private pool. Although this Mediterranean country is known for its stunning coasts and exceptional shorelines, scoring an exquisite villa with its own pool is the ultimate dream. And renting any of these luxury homes will make that dream a reality!
To say that the private pool in this five-star Villa Castrum is spectacular is an understatement. There are two kinds to look forward to. One is a smaller but no-less luxurious indoor pool by the terrace that offers an amazing view of the sea. And since the seaside views from this luxury home
are unlike any other, getting to see it while you take a dip is something else. Then there's the more natural-looking pool down below. You barely know where the pool ends and the sea starts!
Sometimes, an infinity pool by the edge of a cliff is all you need to feel at ease. Just look at the private pool in the exquisite Villa Mare in Dubrovnik, for instance. Set by the edge of the cliff-top deck, you'll really feel like you're swimming to infinity. From certain vantage points, the pool almost looks like it's part of the sea. And the view is something you won't ever forget! With the sun shining down on you and the Adriatic Sea glimmering down below, you'd swear such a scene is unreal!
Villa Pink Champagne
Villa Pink Champagne on Hvar Island, the beloved paradise in Croatia's Dalmatia region, also has a private infinity pool by the edge of a cliff-top deck. Of course, this means that it's the perfect spot to enjoy magnificent views of the Mediterranean and to get a nice tan too. Moreover, the pool and deck are so big that it's perfect for a party! If you're one to invite friends over and have a ball in your private pool, Villa Pink Champagne is for you!
Villa Castle Zaton
With what looks like a grand manor straight out of a classical French novel
, Villa Castle Zaton seems like the past luxury home in Croatia that you'd expect to have its own private pool. But there it is, a massive aquamarine pool that glistens against the sunlight. It may not be the first-class infinity pool that all the other Croatian luxury villas
on this list offer, but it's great nonetheless. What's nice is that half of it is shaded by the villa, allowing people who are sensitive to sunlight to have just as much fun swimming around.
With its resplendent 1920s facade and Art Deco interior, you'd swear that Villa Sheherezade in Dubrovnik is a set for a period film. You can hardly believe that you can rent and stay at this ornate and opulent luxury home in Croatia! Even more so since it has quite the private pool indeed. You may have to track it further down to get to it, but the peace and quiet you'll enjoy here are unlike any other! This is what you call a truly private pool!
Villa London is a five-bedroom luxury rental on Brac Island in Croatia's Dalmatia region with its own private pool. With its square shape, it’s among the smaller pools on this list, but it's by no means inferior to the rest. What it lacks in size and space it makes up for in quality. Thanks to consistent maintenance, the private pool here is exceptionally clean. You'd feel as if one dip is enough to purify your body and soul!
Villa Hvar, located on its namesake island, also has one of the tinier pools on this list. It's even safe to say that it's the smallest of them all. But again, this doesn't mean it's any less luxurious. On the contrary, you might even regard it as the most fascinating of them all. Despite its size, the fact that it's in its own semi-separate house on the property gives you much more privacy. You might have to let go of the sunshine but then, isn't that what the beaches are for anyway?
If you still prefer a bigger private pool with your luxury villa in Croatia, then look no further than the one in Villa Lori in the picturesque town of Rogoznica, also in Dalmatia. It's not an affinity pool but it's positioned to feel and look like it is. Perched on the edge of the upper deck patio, you get to enjoy an other-worldly view of the sea as you swim. You'll no longer want to go underwater if it means missing such superb scenery!
Villa Art Deco
Villa Art Deco is the kind of property you'd want to buy
for your own. It's located on the coast of Dubrovnik, which means you get plenty of sunshine and outstanding views. It has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, making it the perfect luxury rental in Croatia for big families or groups of friends. And of course, you can't forget its sleek private pool. The elongated rectangular shape makes for a chic ambiance, suitable for a nice soirée during the sunset!
The last one on this list is Villa Lifestyle, the grand estate in the Primošten Burnj city in Dalmatia. Perched atop the rocky coast of the city, the views from here will take your breath away. You can even see the gradient tones of the turquoise sea from your bedroom. And the private pool? As luxurious as ever. It's an infinity pool that overlooks the Adriatic Sea. Not only will you get plenty of sunshine, but you can also enjoy the exceptional views from here. What's not to love?
What do the finest luxury villas in Croatia that you can rent have in common? They offer private pools for your leisure. If you want to take a break from the country's beautiful beaches but still want to swim, these are the best alternatives!
