Perfect Stay! Go there if you can.

  • 5 of 5

I spent with my family unforgettable week on the island Brac. I took first floor with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. I enjoyed lie on terrace every morning and listened birds chirping. The house is only few steps from the private beach. The owner is a great gentlemen. Every day brought us something for eat and drink. Every Friday is a gala dinner. It was amazing.

Only what I want to say don't hesitate to make reservation one of these apartments Once again thank you Dinko

Brilliant Holiday and Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Dinko's Villa, this time with my partner in the smaller studio apartment, I have also previously stayed in the larger apartment with my family, both were clean, comfortable and well equipped for everything you would need for your stay. The area is just beautiful, right on the water, nothing better than walking to the bottom of your property and jumping in the crystal clear sea! If anything the pictures undersell the place! Every year the place grows with new additions, this year a lovely terrace looking over the water. Dinko and his family are so welcoming and generous, going above and beyond to make us feel at home. There are a couple of restaurants, cafes and small shops within walking distance but the area is quiet, perfect for a relaxing holiday, yet well connected by road to the rest of the island. I would definitely recommend this place and will hopefully return myself again in the future! Thanks Dinko.

Amazing stay, beautiful villa perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

We were two family (11 persons) and really enjoy our stay. The villa had plenty of room to accommodate all of us. It is perfectly located in a quiet area with a direct access to the sea, this is perfect if you are coming with a boat as we did. Everything is very clean and you cannot get sick of the view from the balcony!

Dinko was very helpful in giving us advices and tips to make our stay better. He even saved our boat! One night, the anchor broke and the boat starting drifting away. Dinko saw this, took his boat and brought back ours while we were all asleep!

Overall, I would definitely recommend his villa. We are already planning on going back next year and we rarely go twice to the same place! Yes it was that good!.

Awesome villa with a splendid location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful from the time we got there. We were 5 (2 parents and 3 adult kids) and we stayed at the villa for 23 days - from 26June to 19July. We enjoyed every minute of it! The villa comprises of 2 separate very well equipped and fully air conditioned apartments with altogether 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are two large terraces from where we enjoyed great view to the bay and the crystal clear sea. Few steps lead from the villa to the private beach with a lot of shadow by the pine trees, so we could stay by the sea for the whole day. The bay with clear water is ideal for swimming and we spent a lot of time in the water. My wife and I often woke up at 6 a.m., watched the sunrise and then went for jogging for about an hour through the beautiful surroundings. Afterwards we jumped into the sea and many times we were alone in the bay. We most of all enjoyed the privacy at the beach. What a mornings!

Otherwise the villa sits in a quiet and private location offering peace and tranquility. It has a big parking place for at least 3 cars and there is a buoy available to tie up a boat. There are approx. 3 kilometers to the nearby towns of Sutivan and Selce. Above both apartments there is a flat where live the owners Meri and Dinko. They are really great hosts and they made us feel like home! Nothing was too hard for them to please us. They gave us all the information needed; they provided us with excellent domestic olive oil and red wine; we were invited to taste delicious fresh fish and lamb. Thank you Meri & Dinko for great holidays, we will surely be back next year!

ABOUT BRAČ

Largest of the central Dalmatian islands, Brač offers a rich cultural and historic heritage as well as beautiful beaches and bays, with delicious and fresh gastronomy and wine. Chief occupations on the island are farming, olive and wine production, fishing and tourism. The nearest fishing village is Sumartin, just a five minute drive from the property, with a bakery, supermarket, restaurants, cafes, and tourist office. There is also a ferry port in Sumartin with connections throughout the day to the city of Makarska.

The town of Selca is a five minute drive from the Villa, also with beautiful architecture, small shops, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, and an Internet cafe. It is also home to the first monument dedicated to the Russian writer, Tolstoy, dating back to 1911. You can find local produce and fish every morning at the Selca and Sumartin Farmers' Markets.

In the Summer season it is common to see local gallery art shows, traditional 'Klape' musicians, concerts, and local festivals to be enjoyed by all ages throughout the island. The Croatia Rediviva, a poetry festival is organized every year in the town of Selca in July, just after the annual town festival July 16th. Each town has its own celebration and each features local entertainment and cuisine, an old Dalmatian tradition where each town celebrates its special day.

Some other notable towns on the island include Pucisca, the hometown of many stone masons, where you can find unique stone masterpieces to bring back home as a souvenir. Milna, situated on the Western side of the island is a popular locations for yachts due to its conveniently situated marina.

Vidova Gora (the highest point of the mountain) is about 15-20 km away - a must see for every tourist!

HOW TO GET THERE

You have two options by ferry, if traveling by car.

1) You can take the Jadrolinija (Jadrolinija.hr) ferry from the city of Split, which takes you directly to the town of Supetar, on the other side of the island. Once you arrive in Supetar, follow the main Island road to the direction of Selca/Sumartin. It will be about a 40 km drive. Once you see signs for the town of Selca, keep going towards the Sea, directly following the main road. Once you arrive at the Sea, you will be at an intersection: to the left is Sumartin and to the right takes you to Punta Ruzmarina (there will be a sign). Take that road towards the right and you will reach the end of the road in about 1km. Our Villa will be on your left.

2) You can also take the Ferry directly from the city of Makarska to the town of Sumartin. Sumartin is only 3 km away from Punta Ruzmarin. Once you arrive in Sumartin, take the main road out of town. Once you reach the intersection, make a left. From this point on, it will be about 1 km to the end of the road and you will arrive at our Villa.

Keep in mind that ferry connections from Sumartin are less frequent and the ferry is smaller. Split connections are almost every hour and ferries accommodate a higher number of passengers and cars per day, so in the middle of the season it is a recommended route when you're traveling with a car.
