Family accommodation

The traditional hospitality and kindness of your hosts and the islanders in general will make your choice of accommodation the easiest task in the world. The Golden Island will win you over and you’ll be back again in no time…

If you would really like to experience the authentic and picturesque little villages or towns of the island of Krk and get to know the way of life of local people, learn about natural and cultural sights, family accommodation is the right choice for you.

With a large number of hotels and campsites constantly improved in order to raise their quality, the island of Krk has also been recognized through its offer of family accommodation.
Friendships made here, loyalty of re- visiting guests, some of them of several generations, that is what makes this aspect of accommodation so special.

This resulted in a unique idea of tourist offer under the name of “Kvarner Family”. This brand is awarded to selected apartments, vacation homes, and private rooms of approved quality and ever- rising standard, in the entire area of Kvarner.

Hectic way of life influenced the return to old beginnings when the first tourists were part of everyday life of families they stayed with.
Therefore the demand for this type of accommodation is growing, particularly for houses often located in the hinterland or in rural areas, away from the city hustle and bustle.

The authentic experience of rural and ecological tourism with the local way of life, stories of old fishermen and organic handpicked produce in an almost imaginary environment become reality.
Cosy accommodation complemented by additional features, the peace and quiet interrupted by birds’ chirping or murmur of sea waves- this will provide a true vacation for your body and soul.

On the other hand, apart from rural environment there are apartments and guest houses with rooms to rent.
