Villa Dalmacija is located in a secluded private bay in Split. It features a beautiful terrace, a romantic pier where you can have an intimate wedding ceremony and is surrounded by forests.
This villa is a top-notch wedding venue in Dubrovnik, also known as the Taj-Mahal of Mediterranean. It has an interesting love story, a perfect location and beautiful gardens with sea views.
In few minutes of boat drive from Dubrovnik, you will arrive on Lokrum, little island with lush gardens, amazing nature reserve, and a beautiful 12th-century monastery complex. The cloister is one of our favourite venues for an intimate wedding in Dubrovnik and generally in Croatia.

Another laid-back outdoor place for an intimate wedding reception and party on the island Vis. Lola bar is a restaurant but looks more like a fellow local’s backyard.
