F

amily accommodations are an important segment of the tourism sector in Croatia. According to the latest data, 67 000 households with around 300 000 family members are in that business, and they own 55 percent of the total accommodation capacity, or around half a million beds. "The trends show that most new suites and vacation homes in Croatia are comparable to the best five-star hotels worldwide. Their owners are young, educated people who have travelled the world and seen what high-quality travel offer includes. Such a high level of quality affects the drastic decrease in

price of low-quality accommodations that exceed the profitability limit. There is also a great demand for high-quality family accommodations, which have the advantage of a lower price in comparison to luxury accommodations", pointed out Anamarija Cicarelli, author of several books on family accommodations and owner of the first Counselling Center for Family Accommodations, Interligo. Her family started renting out rooms and suites on the island of BraÄ? in the 60s, and Anamarija successfully continued the family business she has been a part of since she was little.
