Guestbook comments from the manager

Nearly a month since our holiday, everyone back to work and memories of brac slightly fading!

However just wanted to say once again what an amazing holiday we had at your villa and how grateful we were for all your arrangements which made all the difference to our holiday.

The villa layout worked perfectly giving everyone a bit of space. Surprisingly we didn't really use the pool area preferring the activity by the sea and messing about on and in it!

Despite initial plans the young didn't venture further than Milna - thoughts of clubbing giving way to

Mastering the outside barbecue which we used every day.

A Relaxed Retreat with Amazing Views

  • 4 of 5

Two families with 5 teenagers thoroughly enjoyed a week-long stay at this lovely villa perched on the southwestern edge of Brac overlooking a crystal clear, blue bay. Nina greeted us warmly and showed us the house. We had local honey, jam, and olive oil waiting for us. We also took advantage of Brac's local wine production and had Nina provide some local wines for us to enjoy while sitting out on the veranda overlooking the bay at night. The house had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The kitchen is well-appointed and we used it to cook many meals for very hungry teenagers. There is an traditional outdoor oven/grill and we enjoyed a traditional feast cooked by a local chef arranged through our hosts. The bay is lovely with clear and calm waters. We enjoyed many hours in the bay on paddle boards and the kayak or just swimming. Nina arranged a day-long boat trip around Hvar and the Pakleni Islands that was a highlight of the trip. The house is conveniently located a short drive to Milna so that it is easy to pick up groceries, fresh bread or just go to town for a meal. Brac is a lovely island with many interesting towns to explore. We were very sad to leave and wished we could have stayed longer.

Fantastic house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

(Note: calendar didn't let me put in our actual vacation date) Our family of 5 (mom, dad and 3 kids) stayed for a week in June 2015. Nina and Robert could not have been more wonderful hosts. They connected us with all sorts of local activities and we all went on an overnight sailing trip with Robert as captain. Robert was incredibly generous and took loads of photos of our kids so we could just enjoy the experience. The house was more than ample for our needs. Absolutely clean and well stocked. We enjoyed cooking ourselves and then having a local cook and her family cook for us (amazing!). The pool was a huge hit. We spent alot of time sitting by the water and kayaking as well. Overall a wonderful Croatian holiday. I would highly recommend for anyone who wants both a little adventure and a little pampering on their vacation. Thank you Robert and Nina!

beautiful home, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

an oasis of calm and tranquility, set a mile from the main town. A beautifully presented home with every convenience provided as well as a lovely (but chilly!) pool and a stones throw to the sea.

I highly recommend a visit, thanks Nina for a super holiday

Amazing Croatian Experience

  • 5 of 5

Nina and Robert's property is incredible. It sits right on Duboka Bay and offered everything we could have imagined. Considering I, nor anyone I have traveled with have ever been to Croatia, Nina and Robert catered to our every needs and helped us plan and absolutely memorable travel experience. We would definitely recommend their services. I promise you will not regret a single thing.

Best wine tour and holiday we have had

  • 5 of 5

Our wine group travels every year to a different country to experience the wine & culture. This year we were 3 couples, all in our 50s. Our wine tour to Croatia was truly the best trip we have had. We stayed at the villa in Duboka Bay for 10 days and took wine tours on 4 days - on Brac island, Hvar island, Peljesac Peninsula and a wine dinner in Split.

The sailing to Hvar and Split for our wine tours was the coup de grace. Everything Adriatic Experience did for us, from planning our tours to our arrival by boat and the attention to detail on the organization was amazing. We got to see so many wineries, which were all very different and had great wines we had never even heard of before. Adriatic Experience clearly knows their wines & their groups - they tailored the entire vacation to us. And the food, especially from Maggie at Senjkovic winery, the dinner at Paradigma and the wine & food pairing at St. Hills allowed us to taste new Dalmatian cuisine.

We also had an amazing traditional "peak' dinner at the villa. Nina picked the wines and Jerko outdid himself and was very nice about showing us how he prepared the traditional dishes. The seafood risotto was one the of best I have ever had - he shopped at the large Split fish market for fresh shell fish.

Our "down" days in the villa were relaxing and wonderful to bask in the sun and the sea in the bay is unbelievable - such clear water, you can see 100 feet deep. And the villa is designed well for allowing privacy and plenty of places to gather together. Each couple took their own floor. We had the attic suite, which was perfect for us - plenty of room and spectacular view over the bay.

Finally the wines Nina picked for the house were such a treat - we got to taste a lot of wines from all over Croatia, not just the wineries on the tour.

We will be back with more from our wine club. Next time we are going to try a wine sail. We recommend Adriatic Experience for any type of vacation you want - they listen well and designed a great experience.

We really had no complaints, except that next time we might stay longer because we did a lot in just 10 days. After being in Duboka Bay I think we would have liked to spend more time there, especially since we could cook ourselves (the villa is very well equipped) and always have Jerko come when we wanted a treat.

Fabulous Croatian adventure

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a great vacation in Croatia. The villa was just what we had imagined - pretty, very close to the sea and we could not get over the view. The pool was small, but the kids loved it - they are still talking about their vacation on Brac and would come back every year if we could.

We want to especially thank you for all the arrangements - the boat taxi from the airport was one of the highlights of our trip - we loved it. Our welcome supper was also very much appreciated, that and the grocery shopping before we arrived made the first few days relaxing after a long trip from the US.

But the day sailing was truly amazing, Robert was really great with letting kids sail and arranging for the wine tasting at Dubokovic winery. We are still enjoying the wine we took home!

We will be recommending your villas to all our friends - Croatia is getting to be very popular here in California.

Duboka Bay
Car: recommended

Villa Folie a Deux is just above the sea in exclusive Duboka Bay - just 2km from the harbor town of Milna, where yachts from around the world come and go all summer.

Charming harbor side cafes, restaurants and shops are perfect for an evening in the village. The fresh fruit and vegetable market has local produce while fresh fish can be purchased right off the local fishing boats.

Catamaran goes daily from Milna to Hvar, Korcula, Mljet & Dubrovnik. Frequent ferries connect Brac island with Split - perfect for a day trip to Diocletian's palace, the not-to-be-missed farmer's market and strolling along the famous Split 'harbor side stroll'.

Brac island is the yachting gateway to Dalmatia – timeless, unspoiled and well connected. Brac is where yachts come and go all year around . . . where sailing traditions are a lifestyle . . . where olives are still pressed in the villages . . . where grapes are still harvested with family and friends . . . where stone is still crafted by hand . . . where life still continues in harmony with nature . . . where sun and sea still order daily life.

For active guests, a Day Sail, kayaking, hiking and biking are fabulous on the island. We can also arrange private island tours and wine tasting. Or relax with an Aromatherapy massage on your terrace or learn a little Dalmatian cooking with a private local chef. We provide the opportunity, you provide the inclination.
