Deals for Croatia are still few and far between, which is why we're impressed by this gem from Phone & Fly. For £279 per person, you get a week in a deluxe apartment in Petrcane -- described as a "sleepy fishing village" with "a heavy dose of culture and fine-dining" by MSN Travel -- plus flights and free transfers.
Return flights from London Stansted or Manchester, return transfers and seven nights at the Falkensteiner Apartments Petrcane in Zadar, in a self-catering Apartment Type A.
Depart on select dates from 17 September-8 October, 2014. See Phone & Fly's website for a full list of departures.
The hotel is on the beachfront of Petrcane, 30 minutes from Zadar Airport. There's a brand-new swimming pool, a pizzeria and a beach promenade lined by a pine forest. Apartments face the sea and each have a bedroom, a separate living and dining room, a terrace and a fully equipped kitchen.
Petrcane is a small fishing village known for its sunsets. It's a 20-minute drive from Zadar, which is described as the "perfect break" by The Daily Telegraph. We recommend a wander around the historic old town, with its Roman ruins, medieval buildings and small cafes.
