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.
Villa Vesna is a sight to behold – set in a spectacular spot overlooking the bay of Sumartin, framed by the dramatic Biokovo mountains in the background.
It has been built using high quality, local materials, most recognisably the native Brac stone (famous for its use in the White House in America). This luxurious villa is finished to such an incredibly high standard, and the use of floor-to-ceiling glass lets the natural light flood in to the spacious rooms, perfectly preserving the breath-taking views.
The layout is perfect for families or large groups of friends, as there is simply so much space! Each bedroom has its very own terrace with yet more of those glorious sea views, and the living areas are vast and wonderfully well equipped. The kitchen is state-of-the-art, the artworks adorning the walls have been sourced from all over the world, the lighting specifically selected for each room and made by a renowned Munich designer. Complete with both gym and infra-red sauna, this villa has all the necessary mod-cons and more for the perfect luxury holiday.
Outside, despite its dominating waterfront location, there’s a very private atmosphere to the space, and the white stone continues and is punctuated by the enticing blue of the 11 meter long infinity-edge swimming pool. Relax by the pool on one of the sun-loungers, or if you’ve a little more energy, wander down to the jetty and try your hand at paddle boarding, snorkelling or kayaking, as this villa comes with all the necessary kit required and all at the bottom of the garden! Kayak round to Sumartin itself, where there’s a great selection of cafes, bars and restaurants.
