If you want to have an unforgettable holiday in luxuriously furnished apartments with a breathtaking seaview on the most beautiful Dalmatian islands, sense beautiful clear sea, taste fresh figs and olives, all that with a glass of wine and some freshly caught Adriatic fish, Apartments Filipovic are an ideal place for you and your family. Located in a small fishing village Drasnice, where the magnificent mountain massif Mt Biokovo plunges into the blue Adriatic sea, our apartments offer an indescribable experience.
The long pebbled beaches, crystal clear blue sea and mild Mediterranean climate along with our luxurious accommodation and friendly people make Drasnice an ideal place for a family vacation. We must remark that the sea in this area is very clean, one of the purest parts of the Adriatic Sea. Generally, Croatian Adriatic is the second in Europe regarding quality of the sea, just behind Cyprus, according to the report of the European Commission and the European Environment Agency about the purity and quality of European waters.
What makes Drasnice so specific are the picturesque drywalls and well-preserved stone houses under Biokovo in which people lived up to the earthquake in 1962. This caused the migration of the population to the shore. Consequently, the tourism became more prominent, and the life overnight moved from mountain to coast. Drasnice are a small local ˝Pompeii˝, because you can feel the spirit of the times that have been dominant on this location for centuries and trace the continuity of life and settlements dating back to prehistory.
Drasnice is mentioned for the first time in a Turkish document from the 15th century, at the same time as The Church of St. George. The church was redesigned in baroque style in the 18th century, but it was unfortunately destroyed in a big earthquake and a new church was built in the same place, with many incorporated parts from the old church.
Drasnice have nowadays grown into a lovely fishing village alongside the shore with a beautiful little harbour.
For tourists who like swimming and sunbathing in natural surroundings there are small secluded romantic beaches in nature with no houses nor people around only about 1 minute drive away, it is also easy to walk there.
Very often you will be able to see charming dolphins, what especially makes children very happy.
