Brac, famed for its beautifully radiant white stone, is the longest and most elevated of all the Dalmatian islands, 48km long and 14km wide. Less frequented by tourists than nearby Hvar and Split, Brac is an example of perfectly preserved island life, with a rich and fascinating history, and dramatics landscapes – a mixture of rocky cliffs, sapphire waters and thick Aleppo pine forests.
The famous white-pebble beach, Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape) is a must – adorning so many of Croatia’s tourism campaigns, it’s easy to see why, with its unusual geography and changeable nature, from shallow and shaded to deep and sun-blistered, depending on the direction of the wind. Nearby to this beach is Bol, on the southern side of the island, and the oldest town on the coast. Explore the town’s narrow and winding cobbled streets, bustling with local life, in typical Mediterranean spirit. There is ample evidence of the deep history of Bol in the many monuments dating back to the 11th century, and is a great place to visit to learn more about Brac’s rich past.
Heading to the East coast, you’ll find the smaller town of Sumartin, founded in the 17th century by pilgrims attempting to flee from Turkish rule. The influence of this is evident in the difference in dialect in Sumartin from the island’s other towns. Here, fishing, ship-building and olive growing are the main occupations for locals, and this bustling town has a host of things to offer, from secluded bays, wonderfully fresh seafood and mouth-watering restaurants, head here to escape the masses and get a feel for the genuine, true Dalmatia.
Brac is home to the highest peak on the Adriatic islands, Vidova Gora, and you can hike (or drive!) to it’s peak to enjoy spectacular views over Zlatni Rat beach, Bol, and even over to Hvar on the horizon.
This island will definitely take you off the beaten path, but our glorious villas, situated right on the waterfront, provide the perfect point from which to explore and discover the island for yourselves.
Bol Beach House is the perfect base from which to explore the island of Brac. Just a short walk to the nearest beach, and a short drive in to Bol itself, there’s so much to see and do right on your doorstep. That is if you can drag yourself away from the villa itself! With refreshingly light and spacious interiors, ample terraces and seating areas, not to mention an epic view over the Adriatic, we wouldn’t blame you if you decided to just soak up the sun by the pool for the week!
We can help organise a cook for the night, who will make light work of preparing a delicious spread on the poolside grill so you needn’t lift a finger in the evenings, leaving you free to enjoy an aperitif on the upstairs terrace.
If you can tear yourself away from the house, nearby Bol is a must see, as is the famous Zlatni Rat beach – the perfect area for water-sports. You can hire a boat with a skipper and explore the island from a different perspective, stopping off at the lesser known beaches and bays on route. A little more adventurous still, head to the neighbouring islands like Hvar for the day!
In Bol town itself, you’ll find so much to see and do, with lovely little shops, markets, some great restaurants and bars too.
With so much to offer and in such comfort, we’re certain you’ll have a holiday to remember at this glorious villa.
