Croatian Holiday Homes Win Best in Europe!

Daniela Rogulj

Good news for holiday homes in Croatia!

Villa Vista Zamask in Istria, Villa Sreser on Pelješac, Villa Falcon Rook from Konavle and Villa Vadedija near Žminj were declared the best European Holiday Homes (BEHH) in Brussels last night, reports on September 15, 2017. 

Croatia, thus, became the absolute winner of the competition, conquering four of the eight categories. Villa Falcon Rook from Konavle was awarded the best family friendly holiday home, Villa Vista from Zamask was awarded the most unique holiday home, Villa Sreser from Pelješac was awarded the best holiday home beach house, and the best health and wellness home was awarded to Villa Vadedija near Žminj.

The BEHH Awards, which was held for the third consecutive year, is organized by the European Holiday Home Association. Representatives of the largest European companies engaged in family accommodation, such as AirBnB, Novasol, Interhome and HomeAway, attended the awards ceremony.

Croatia had 12 finalists out of 64 total who competed in eight categories – an excellent result given that thriving tourist destinations such as France and Italy had only two representatives in the finals of this competition. The United Kingdom was the only finalist to have more entries than Croatia – they ultimately won three awards. A total of 18 countries from Europe participated in this selection.

“This is a remarkable success for Croatian family accommodation and confirmation that this sector is developing in the right direction, and that Croatia is only moving towards the title of the most beautiful and most desirable European destination. The increasing recognition of holiday homes, which, according to the latest figures included 92,000, demonstrates the importance of the specialization of the offer, the branding of the destination, and the education of the host, which is intensively done by the Communities of Family Tourism at the HGK,” said Danijela Čavlović, Deputy Head of the HGK Family Tourism Community. 

Čavlović was involved in choosing the best European accommodation as the only Croatian representative and also accepted the awards in Brussels on behalf of the Croatian winners.
