Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for another wonderful holiday at Villa Bonaca, Sumartin. This was our second visit and we will be booking again for next summer. The villa accommodation is perfectly suited to our family (2 grandparents, 2 parents & 1 child); it is very clean & has all the facilities you need for a comfortable holiday. The outside area of the villa is amazing, the covered terraces, sun terraces, BBQ & of course the wonderful pool! Villa Bonaca is in an the perfect location in Sumartin - just set back from the port in the center of the small town but not overlooked due to the terraces being above street level & behind trees. The Croatian people are very friendly and Orvas couldn't have done more to make our holiday as relaxing and stress free as possible. This villa really ticks all the boxes for a perfect family holiday & we look forward to visiting again next year.

Every year we spent holidays in a different country. This year the choice was Croatia. Brac Island was everything we hoped for and Villa Bonaca was the same. It had plenty of room for all of us, it was beautiful and in a perfect location. Definitely worth a visit!

Holidays in Brac

The house was amazing and we were provided with the best relaxation possible. House was very cozy and exceeded everyones expectations. The housekeeper was very nice and helpful. Also the view of the harbour – beautiful! Since the villa is in the centre there we could see a lot of things just by going out of the house. Brac was amazing and we will definately return!

Great location We had a good holiday in Villa Bonaca. Since it’s located in the centre, it was close to everything and we had no problem to explore Sumartin and enjoy the shops and pubs there. The view of the harbour was very pleasant, only it didn’t give us much privacy, but nevertheless it was a sight to remember. The house was beautiful and there were no problems in our stay. Thank you!

Sumartin on Brac is the most recent, most easterly settlement, by the eastern point of Brac. In fact, until the 19th century it was known as East Brac. The name Sumartin is linked to immigrants from the Makarska mainland who fled here from the Turkish invasion in 1646 and established a shrine dedicated to St. Martin, one of the saints of their former home. On the site where the medieval church of St. Martin used to stand, there is now a Franciscan monastery, whose foundations were laid in 1747 by the famous Dalmatian poet friar, Andrija Kacic-Miosic.

The village grew steadily and spontaneously on the slopes around the bay and the newcomers lived from fishing, boatbuilding and seafaring. The Lucica boatbuilding yard in Sumartin on Brac, in which traditional wooden boats are built, is today one of very few remaining on the Adriatic. It is also interesting to note that professional fishing the world over benefited from an invention by a man of Brač, Mario Puratic, who emigrated to the United States in 1955 and invented a pulley for dropping and hauling in fishing nets.

Sumartin on Brac has a ferry dock and so, like Supetar and Bol, is one of the entrances to Brac. Although it has good connections with Makarska and is visited by tourist yachts, Sumartin is still a peaceful place to spend a restful holiday. There are some quiet, hidden coves nearby (Rasotica, Zukovik, Radovnja, Studena, Zvirje and Spilice) with sandy or pebble beaches. Sumartin is attractive because it has retained its simplicity, with its lovely beaches, unspoiled nature and crystal clear sea. You can always find fresh fish and other local delicacies, like cheese, honey, lamb and wine. If you want entertainment, you can always go to Bol, one of the best-known Adriatic destinations with a vibrant nightlife and a wide range of sporting activities.
