Welcome to Croatia – the home of thousand islands!: Many visitors through decades were hypnotized by its crystal clear sea, marvelous sunsets, magical bays, undiscovered beauty, breathtaking sea views and many, many more. Numerous tour guides declared it as a hit destination of modern times. It was a source of inspiration to many poets and writers.

We would just say - once upon a time in the Mediterranean....

… And the story still goes on. You can be a part of it!

Long maritime tradition is carved in local culture and everyday life. Come and explore local sounds and aromas, visit monasteries and museums, listen to sailor’s stories, learn fishermen’s tricks, take long walks through the endless fields of grape and olive trees…

Understand why the Roman Emperors built their residences on Croatian coast centuries ago; why Austrian and British Monarchs enjoyed its relaxing beauty not so long in history and why Arabian Princes discovered its magic just recently.


Villa Bracera Story: This holiday villa is conveniently located on the Island of Brac which is one of the most beautiful of the Adriatic pearls. Base yourself in
Villa Bracera and explore the essence of the Adriatic coast. This cozy holiday home can be your anchor in the sea while you are visiting one of the most beautiful archipelagos in Europe – Dalmatia – its islands, bays and national parks. Savour your memories for months to come…

Villa Bracera in the picturesque town of Supetar is conveniently located in the heart of the Adriatic Sea – island of Brac! Whether you are flying, driving or sailing you can reach it easily between your breakfast and lunch. If you are coming from Europe and UK there are numerous scheduled, charter and low-cost flights directly to Split International Airport that don’t take more than 2-3 hours. Efficient ferry service will take you to the island in less than an hour. Villa Bracera is just a minute’s walk from the Supetar ferry port.


This cozy hideaway is a family heritage built traditionally from local quarries stone. Not long ago it was owned by a maritime captain who has sailed the seas like many other from the island. It is now serving as a holiday villa and our family getaway when things get tough. Let your mind and spirit revitalize and soak local sounds, sights and aromas.

The house where a family has been reuniting after months spent away from each other. The old saying tells – put your hand in the sea and you can touch your loved ones who are miles away!
Hand made crochet handkerchiefs and handful of dried rosemary in the pocket prevents the memories of home to fade out.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          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.

                           

                          Owner info

                          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.
