Croatia remains at the top of the "wish" list for many British holiday-makers and now there's even more choice for those who want the "home away from home" experience in this charming Mediterranean destination. Leading holiday home rental specialist, Interhome, has acquired long-standing partner ABC H-Turizam and added a whole host of new villas, farmhouses and apartments throughout the country.
Interhome currently has 800 properties available to rent in Croatia and plans to double this over the next three years. Below are just some of the hidden gems, waiting to be uncovered.

Sleeping up to eight people, the air-conditioned villa has four bedrooms, a living room with open fireplace, satellite-TV and DVD player, a kitchen with oven, dishwasher and microwave, plus a sun terrace and garden pavilion ideal for outdoor dining. A beautifully manicured lawn frames a private swimming pool and the house has been tastefully furnished with exposed beams to create a rustic and cosy ambience.
