About Ivana Franceschi
I live in Dubrovnik, where I was born. I enjoy sports, specially running and free climbing. I love animals and nature and very often I go for a walk with my dogs. I enjoy cooking and there is nothing more inspiring for me, then to wake up early in the morning and go to the market to buy fresh groceries. I am the owner of the company "Adventure Dalmatia", which offers tourists a way the spend their vacation exploring the beautiful coast of the Adriatic sea. We specialise in organising hiking, kayaking and biking tours.
Ivana Franceschi purchased this Villa in 2006

Situated in the ethno village of Dol, villa provides the feeling of peaceful and relaxing place, away from traffic and city rush. Crystal clear sea, small beaches and Mediterranean landscape makes it ideal rest place for both body and soul.

A fab villa on a lovely island. Great value for money.
Beautiful traditional house in peaceful village. Lovely pool with stunning views.
Had a wonderful relaxing week with children aged 17 and 12, who also loved it. House was tasteful, comfortable and clean. Likewise beautiful pool with great views across the valley and to the sea at Postira. Fabulous sea and beaches close by, as well as good and friendly restaurants. We enjoyed renting bicycles and using Ivana's kayaks at Postira. Ivana was very helpful with queries before the holiday, and then sorted out a minor problem for us very quickly. Could not fault the house or the holiday, would love to do it all again.
Beautiful property in a lovely village!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home! The house is gorgeous and filled with everything you could need. The grounds are lovely and the views are spectacular. We relaxed by the pool taking in the peace and quiet of the area. The village of Dol is quite beautiful, full of picturesque stone buildings.There are a couple of restaurants and groceries within short walking distance, and Postera is a few minutes drive to a sweet port town with shops and restaurants. Ivana (and her adorable dog) were excellent hosts and made sure we were taken care of. I would highly recommend this property for its beauty and quiet yet convenient location. I wish we could have stayed longer than a couple of days. Spend some time and settle inand you won't be disappointed.
We had a wonderful and very relaxing time in Villa Dol. The setting is beautiful and while the swimming pool was a little chilly to swim in in mid October we still enjoyed the nearby beaches (including swimming) and walks in the hills and along the shore very much. The owner Ivana has been a very caring host.
Super Restored Farmhouse in a Peaceful Location
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 place to relax!
Lovely house - everything perfect. Well presented and equipped. Great BBQ and outside dining areas. Beautiful views and very peaceful. We'd love to come back!!
