The Association of Small and Family Hotels gathers more than 150 members whose concept is based on high quality service and nurturing authenticity and indigenous local values. Hotels are spread all over Croatia and are distinguished by their continuous search for new features to enrich the stay of their guests. Whether you are searching for an active vacation, traveling with family, love to enjoy local cuisine or just want to rest we believe you will find a hotel that will fulfill all of your expectations. Welcome!
Small family-run hotels are a new feature on the face of Croatian tourism. This latest segment encompasses all the qualities of our tourist supply with which you are already familiar, but with the addition of qualities which have only become apparent in recent years. And so, if it seems to you that this catalogue is something novel emanating out of Croatia, you are not mistaken.
So permit us to present you with just a few of the reasons which lead us to believe that small family-run hotels are here to commence a new chapter in the supply of our tourist opportunities.
Undoubtedly, the most important of all reasons is the fact which tells us that a guest feels most comfortable in an environment which is close, intimate and family-like. In other words, where one’s individuality is recognized, where individual wishes and preferences are respected; where one’s host knows exactly how to make each and everyone feel welcome, accepted, respected and yes, content. The warmth of the personal touch is irreplaceable and small family-run hotels are the very form of tourism in Croatia which succeeds in embracing such warmth. Somebody once described them as small hotels with a large soul.
In order to provide you with the opportunity of meeting the best that Croatia has to offer, each hotel presented in this catalogue is a genuine refl ection of the tradition of the area in which it is located.
And, with the intention of enabling you to get to know authentic, indigenous local values, every hotel tells its own very individual story. There are many ways to do this - through a style of architecture which refl ects the clime in which the hotel is situated, its specifi c interior decoration, the aromas and fl avours of the local cuisine, a wine list typical of the locality, excursion tours to landscapes found nowhere else, sport and recreational activities which, for certain locations in Croatia, were simply tailor-made. The colour of local life can best be experienced through encounters with the local people and, of course, with the hotel owner. In other words, the true spirit of the locality can be experienced in every hotel.
And that is probably the common thread linking all the hotels presented in this catalogue, but which are different one from the other in so many ways.
We are confident that you will make the choice that is right for you.
In order that your sojourn in Croatia is pleasant and carefree and that you do not unwittingly infringe any local laws, we respectfully request that you check whether you have been correctly registered for the whole period of your stay in our country - from the day you arrive until the day of your departure.
This is an important and necessary procedure, particularly if you are staying in private accommodation. Not only will it guarantee you quality service but you will avoid possible problems, including jeopardising your insurance cover, a danger posed by the illegal operations of rogue agents who are not licensed to provide legal accommodation.
We thank you for your cooperation in this respect and we wish you a truly enjoyable stay.
