                                                              We have just returned from a fantastic week in Villa Dol as a family of four (2 adults and 2 children aged 14 and 10). The booking process was very easy and Ivana who manages the property replied to all correspondence very quickly (also kindly booking us a great recommended restaurant for our first night). The house is well appointed, very well maintained and clean. It is in a lovely peaceful location with superb views. The house has all necessary facilities for a fantastic family holiday. The outside space is excellent, with a lovely BBQ area and also plenty of shady places under the olive trees for relaxing, reading and eating. The pool was a real highlight and the children (and adults) spent a lot of time in it! The village of Dol has three restaurants and we ate in all three and could highly recommend them. Postira is the local bigger town, which has a good variety of cafes / restaurants and beaches and it also has a decent supermarket. We spent a day at Skrip and this is not to be missed. The olive oil museum was great fun (definitely do the tasting for a few extra kunas!) and the Museum of Brac was fantastic. The lady on the desk at the museum spent ages giving us a tour and telling us all about the history. She was very knowledgeable and highly entertaining. In short, we can highly recommend Villa Dol and the Island of Brac to anyone.

                                                              Wonderful, beautifully appointed villa near Dol

                                                              Our family of five adults spent an enchanted week in September in Ivana's home and loved every minute. It's a beautiful and well appointed home with architecturally interesting features and design. We were greeted and oriented well to the property which is located in Dol, outside Postira on the island of Brac. We spent time exploring the region, hiking, kayaking (with kayaks generously provided by the owner), swimming and renting bikes, returning to the wonderful swimming pool at Villa Dol for a swim. There is a large outdoor grill and eating area which we enjoyed. The owner, Ivana, and the local host, Sandra, were very helpful, providing recommendations and directions as needed. There are three local restaurants in the small village of Dol (we enjoyed all three) and many more in Postira. We cooked many of our meals and found more than adequate cookware. All of us were sad to leave this great spot and would love to return again one day. Thank you, Ivana and Sandra!

                                                              Amazing holiday experience

                                                              We had the most wonderful time in this amazing villa! The views are spectacular, and it is the perfect place to relax. The village itself has 3 restaurants which we found to have the best food in Croatia (we were touring the Islands). Ivana, the host, is quick to respond and extremely helpful, and we would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting the perfect holiday getaway. Thanks Ivana!

                                                              Fantastic

                                                              We were two families with small children visiting Villa Dol. The welcome was superb and the introduction to the house really good. The villa is beutifully situated with an amazing view in a cozy town. In the village there are two nice restaurants serving excellent food and a small ride by car gives you plentiful opportunities for nice restaurants and beaches. I would highly recommend a stay here!
