About Us

Adriatic Cottages is owned and operated by Peter Thomas and Justine Noy.

In Australia, Peter and Justine have together operated a number of successful small businesses in tourism and service industries. We have travelled extensively in Western Europe and Eastern Europe, including Turkey, Hungary, Slovakia, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia.

Over a number of years, we have constantly returned to the Dalmatian coast in Croatia, where we never tire of the Mediterranean climate, the food, the people, the history and the beauty of the Adriatic.

Each trip strengthens our belief that Eastern Europe is one of the world’s most relaxing and exciting destinations. Wanting to share our experiences with others, we established Adriatic Cottages + Tours. Our enthusiasm continues to grow for this region of the world which is relatively unexplored by mainstream tourists and awaiting people with an adventurous spirit and a love of European hospitality and culture.

When in Australia, we are based in the beautiful Macedon Ranges of Victoria. We have renovated an apartment and a house in the UNESCO listed medieval town of Trogir (north of Split). You will enjoy staying in our accommodation which is of a high standard.

We are also assisting a friend with the renovation of a property in the historic mountain town of Arbanasi near Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria.

Trogir is a yachting mecca and an ideal starting point for visits to the beaches and islands of the Dalmatian Coast including Hvar, Brač, Vis and Korčula.

Peter manages the Adriatic business and Justine practises as a lawyer (www.noy.com.au).

Eastern Europe has so much to offer. Gourmet tours, hiking, yachting, skiing, kayaking, walking through history, learning to interact with multiple cultures, spectacular scenery by train or bus and island hopping.

We are keen to offer tailored tours for small groups. Please call us if you would like us to prepare a personal itinerary for you.

We will introduce you to the delights of Eastern European food and help you find the best restaurants, the freshest seafood, the tastiest grills and the best Šljivovica.

If it sounds like we are excited about Eastern Europe, it is because we are!
