Continuing our look at the luxury Croatian real estate market through the eyes of the impressive portfolio of Sotheby’s Croatia International Realty on December 22, 2017, a delightful treasure in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the old town of Trogir.
I never tire of walking around the spectacular and historic old stone towns of Dalmatia. They breathe history and tradition, and there is always something of interest around the corner.
One of the most fascinating things about them – to me at least – is just how different they look from different angles and perspectives. Walking around the towns in the streets is a very egalitarian experience, but when it comes to looking at the streets from the apartments and villas of the towns, that is when it becomes interesting.
There has been a marked increase in the number of high-quality renovations of old stone buildings in recent years on the coast, and there is untold luxury contained behind some of those external stone walls.
The best of both worlds – historic stone and tradition, complemented with all the best that modern luxury can bring.
And there are few finer old towns than fabulous Trogir, whose old town is one of the 11 UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Croatia. A small piece of it could be yours in our latest excerpt from the catalogue of Sotheby’s Croatia International Realty, who introduce Apartment Perla as follows:
STUNNING APARTMENT IN THE OLD TOWN OF TROGIR
Apartment Perla is a modern furnished apartment with an incredible view. It is located on the second floor of a traditional Dalmatian stone house in the historic center of the medieval town of Trogir.
This stunning, sunny apartment has over 160 square meters of living space, including three bedrooms, an office, a spacious living room, a modern kitchen and dining area, two bathrooms and a separate toilet.
The apartment has a 150-square-meter roof terrace that serves as a relaxation area with a hydro-massage pool, deck chairs, and a view over the belfry of the Cathedral of St. Lawrence and the rooftops of the old town.
A modern design and the finest materials and equipment were used in this luxurious apartment. Combined with its perfect location in the heart of this historic “museum city,” it is an excellent choice for those who value culture and history and want to experience the authentic life of Dalmatia.
Only a few steps away from the apartment, through narrow stone-paved streets on which life pulsates in the many authentic restaurants, cafés, and small shops, there is an exit that leads onto the main square of the old town of Trogir and the famous Cathedral of St. Lawrence.
Walking the streets here, you can see stunning medieval architecture at every step. This rich cultural and historical heritage attracts tourists from around the world who are increasingly discovering this hidden pearl of the Mediterranean.
Trogir is a coastal town in central Dalmatia. It is a picturesque town which, because of its renowned heritage, is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It sits on the small island of Ciovo and is connected the mainland by a small bridge. Its ideal location is due to the proximity of the Split Airport, which is 27 kilometers away, and to the historic city of Split, only six kilometers away.
The island of Ciovo also offers beautiful beaches, sporting activities, a lively nightlife with many restaurants and cafes, and the beauty of its unspoiled nature.
The nearby marina can accommodate boats of up to 50 meters. Impressive yachts are often moored at a dock adjoining the main waterfront. They complement the impressive sights of the old town, which is surrounded by walls that were once a fortress. Today, Trogir is an inevitable port of call for Adriatic sailors.
The neighboring islands of Drvenik Veliki and Drvenik Mali have peaceful sandy beaches and traditional restaurants with authentic Dalmatian cuisine.
