MORE ABOUT SEVID

SEVID- a small place for a great vacation in central Dalmatia. A beautiful place with the clearest sea in Croatia. Away from city noises, Sevid is just the right place for your intimate vacation.

It was founded by old fisherman from Rogoznica and it was named after the church of St. Vid, around which the village was built.

Sevid is surrounded by crystal clear sea, lots of islands and the most famous sandy cove Old Trogir, where you can see the remmants of the old Roman villa Rustika which served to the ancient Romans as a shelter and a boat dock where they took their suplies and water.

It is the perfect place for relaxation, with Dalmatian food, the scent of the sea and the sound of seagulls which is perfect for relieving stress.

It offers an ideal location for a relaxing holiday and there are stunning panoramic views of untouched Mediterranean landscape and crystal clear turquoise coloured water. Untouched nature and pleasant people are some of numerous qualities which make Sevid a unique place.

Far from everyday crowd and noise of urban areas, this small Mediterranean place will offer you, above all, peacefulness and quietness. All day long enjoying in swimming and sunbathing is all that is waiting for you in this small village.

The temperatures are moderate, the air pressure and humidity stable, fog appears only three days a year and there is a lot of sunshine. The average number of hours of sunshine per year is 2580 (just as in Palermo, Italy).

The Mediterranean climate is characterized by exceptionally clean air and sea-salt aerosols. The 'sea air' is a key feature of the Mediterranean climate. The higest concentration of sea-salt aerosol is recorded right by the sea i.e. on the beach and therefore in our apartments as well. In addition, our apartments provide adequate servies to ensure a relaxing seaside vacation.

Sevid is situated 45 km north from Split, 15 km north from Trogir and 14 km south from Primosten, 8 km from Rogoznica.

Local activities:
Cycling, diving, kayaking, fish-picnics by boats (depart from Rogoznica), sailing, swimming, fishing and windsurfing.
