Weather having a relaxing or active holiday, Villa Bracera is your perfect base for exploring the whole island Brac and Split area.
There is more history, culture and stunning nature on Brac than you can consume on a short holiday. You may as well choose to enjoy the laid back atmosphere of local life and relax at your cozy base. We are conveniently located in a quiet residential area of Supetar, just minutes walk from the vibrant town centre with shops, restaurants and markets. Closest beach is down the road, only 100 m short walk from the house. Ferry port is super close, you can literary hop on the next ferry within minutes if you decide to visit Split, even on a short notice.
Island Brac is a rocky island and Villa Bracera is a typical dalmatian cottage built traditionally from local stone. We believe a great holiday rental on a Croatian island should be authentic: old school architecture in a scenery that hasn’t changed much in hundreds of years with genuine scents and sounds AND real locals living next door!
Brac is both vibrant and sleepy depending on the time of year you are visiting. Most of the year it looks pretty much like centuries ago, and then wakes up every June for the new summer season when thousands of tourists pour in, shake it a bit before it goes back to “mute” for the long winter. Regardless of the season, it has plenty to offer especially if you are a nature lover, when off season is even better to explore it’s secrets.
Year Purchased: 1973
About the owner: We are a busy family of 5 and currently live near London, UK. Our children are 13, 12 and 8 and enjoy every moment of our summer holidays on Brac island. We have done a major remodelling in 2012. and our aim is to share it with likeminded people who we usually make friends with.
Why the Owner Chose Supetar: This is our holiday home that has been in the family for 40 years. My husband's parents built this typical stone cottage in the 70-ties and his late Grandmother was pretty much in charge of the building process. Some of the builders still remember her attention to detail and passion to maximise the building material using solid rocks whenever possible. We are fortunate to call this house our own now and are happy to share it with holiday makers who appreciate authentic Dalmatian lifestyle.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Excellent location in a quiet neighbourhood far away from busy hotels, yet walking distance from the town waterfront, markets, restaurants and ferry port. Closest beach is down the road and this house is a perfect base for exploring the whole island.
