About MIRA

I live in Split, where I was born.

I love flowers, animals and nature and very often I go for a walk through vineyards and olive groves with my husband. I enjoy in life and there is nothing more inspiring for me when to wake up early in the morning and I enjoy the sounds of nature and birds with morning coffee and a view of the green field, fig trees, vineyards, olives and preserved nature of my green island.

MIRA purchased this villa in 2012

Why MIRA chose Donje Selo

When me and my husband saw 2012. that 100 year old destroyed stone house we knew that it will be perfect place to enjoy and eascape from civilization but also from big town life.

In house nobody lived for 50 years before us and that was extra challange.

We had a vision wich we accomplished and result you can see on pictures.

From old ruined house we made warm home for us and our guests.

Location of the house in the old part of the village. It is completely tranquil and we are surrounded by traditional houses. However you are able to drive car to fabulous beaches, the harbour and restaurants in 5-10 minutes.

It is a peaceful Mediterranean traditional stone house which we have completely renovated 2013. in a rustical style but well equipped with everything you need during vacations.

What makes this villa unique

Perfect place for familys and friend with guaranteed peace and silence.

Villa Nikola Solta

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property in a really peaceful location. The property has been renovated with love and attention to detail, it has absolutely everything needed for a wonderful holiday. The owners could not be more welcoming and it is clearly important to them that their guests have a superb time. This ranks as one of the best holiday rentals we have ever taken. Solta is a beautiful island with numerous coves and beaches for swimming and pretty harbours with pleasant bars to shelter from the sun whilst enjoying some refreshment. If you want a week or two away from the tourist

crowds but still want the luxuries that this villa offers, then this is most definitely the place to be.

One of the best villas we’ve ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

It’s the small things that make a perfect holiday and this villa has small things in abundance. The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen diner and living room, there’s a decent sized twin room on the first floor and a spacious double bedroom on the top floor with a lovely wooden vaulted ceiling. Each floor has a bathroom and there is aircon in each bedroom. Outside is a lovely pool and a separate area with a wood burning oven. Bikes were also provided. Mira and her family were lovely hosts and gave us a very warm welcome but then left us alone to enjoy our holiday. When we arrived they very kindly stocked the fridge for us and gave us some advice on where to visit on Solta. The overall feel of the place was modern but also cosy. It felt like you were staying in the house of your best friend. The village is very peaceful so if you’re looking for somewhere to get away from it all and have a relaxing break, this villa is ideal for you.

Fantastic family holiday villa with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 adults, 2 older teens and a 3 year old) have recently returned from this Villa on the island of Solta and would strongly recommend a stay here. Mira and her son greeted us off the ferry and welcomed us to their beautiful villa, paying particular attention to the needs of our 3 year old by providing a cot bed, buggy and a bucket /spade plus leaving lovely food goodies and wine in the fridge. The Villa and pool are stunning, the property has been renovated to a very high standard and has a real home from home / special happy place feeling. The island of Solta is beautiful, very friendly, resorts and beaches pretty quiet, very accessible and clean, we had some lovely food in beautiful locations and enjoyed a boat trip around the island organised by Mira. Food is not cheap but not overpriced. The village of Donje Selo itself is very quiet, nothing much there yet and the beach which ideally you need to drive too has no facilities but is well worth a visit, we spent time at Stormaski and Melinski both of which have lovely beaches and restaurants and are a short drive away. The supermarket and small market at Grohote are a 10 minute drive away, or Mira has provided bikes for you to use, I would recommend going early if you want to avoid queues and want to buy croissants, great little cafés for a coffee in the village. We can see why people would go back year after year and if I didn't have so many places I want to see then I would also go back too, maybe one day. Our only little concern during the holiday was that there were quite a lot of wasps around the pool area in the heat of the day which prevented us from using it, that said we went out and about and returned for a swim late afternoon when they seem to disappear, plus the pool was lovely and warm by then. Would recommend taking antihistamine tablets and bite cream with you as we all got bitten when we were out and about, the Villa itself has excellent air conditioning and mosquito screens at the windows, I guess it is because the Island is so green. All in all we had a fantastic family holiday, the Villa and Solta delivered all we had hoped for when booking.

Island Solta has a rich past which you can feel as soon as you step off the ferry.

Vicinity of Split has permanently determined connection between Solta and this ancient Dalmatian centre.

Daily excursions to Split or surrounding islands are very pleasant and easy to organize due to

frequent ferry and boat lines.

In the summer period island is full of interesting events: exhibitions, recitals, “pirates nights“and concerts of original Dalmatian vocal bands-“Klape”.

Donje Selo is a picturesque, typical Mediterranean hamlet located by the main island road, near Srednje Selo.

Pay a short visit to the village on your way from Grohote to Maslinica or vice versa. Stroll through its stone-paved alleys and discover its secret corners. Today, it has an air of loveliness and simplicity due to a considerable number of stone houses restored for holiday renting.

We suggest you to go for a walk or ride along the biking trail,an alternative route to Maslinica, starting from Grohoteand passing through SrednjeSelo and DonjeSelo.

There is also a tiny road leading from the village to the beautiful bay of DonjaKrušica. Its inhabitants once made a living from fishing and farming. Today, they are mainly focused on producing olive oil and wine, while fishing became a hobby. With an increasing interest in tourism, DonjaKrušica is gradually becoming a tourist destination that attracts more and more tourists each year.

The settlement dates back from the period of Antiquity. Numerous archaeological finds, such as the remains of a villa rustica, the walls of a rectangular building with a floor mosaic, discovered on the upland of Gradine, ancient stone mounds and graves, and the remains of the foundations of the early Christian church of St. Jela from the 6th century testify to the old times. The first historical records of the settlement date back to the beginning of the 16th century.

Here you can find the churches of St. Martin and St. Jela. The Parish Church of St. Martin is an old cemetery church that has seen several refurbishments over the years.

The inhabitants of Donje Selo have preserved a long tradition of venerating St. Martin. Archaeologists have found a record titled 'The Letter of St. Martin, Bishop of the City of Tours', of unknown age, which has been preserved owing to a pastor's transcript from the 19th century. The veneration of St. Martin on the island represents a valuable part of the related cross-European cultural heritage. The 'Foot of St. Martin' was attached to the Confraternity House in DonjeSelo on 3 July 2010 to mark Šolta's joining the European Cultural Route 'Saint Martin of Tours'.

Come and experience the magic of life on the most beautiful and authentic Dalmatian island!
