Property description

Illyria is a very old Dalmation fisherman's cottage that has been restored to a very high standard whilst retaining the authenticity of the property. Locally quarried Brac stone is used throughout to give the property a cool and serene feel. The property is set over 3 floors with 2 of the three bedrooms enjoying breathtaking and uninterrupted views across the Adriatic Sea. The property comes with 2 bathrooms both equipped with power showers. The property is air conditioned throughout and satellite TV is available.

The property has a large terrace with BBQ - you can fish from the terrace and then pop your catch right on your own fire. There is a mooring post . situated in front of the property making it suitable for those with a boat or small yacht. Illyria is within a short walk of the local amenities including the fine restaurants and pubs of Postira. Guests may use the gym, spa (incl manicurist) and sauna/solarium/internet facilities of a nearby hotel for a small charge.


The island of Brac is only a 45 min ferry journey from Split which is directly served by an international airport. In the summer months, ferry departures from Split are very frequent i.e. every hour. Flights to Zadar (one and half hours drive from Split) and Dubrovnik (3 hours drive from Split) would also be suitable.
If guests prefer we are able to arrange a private boat transfer (private speedboat) from a jetty just 800m from the airport entrance to Postira harbour (only 400m from our house) which is a very exciting and quick way of arriving. The private transfer is EUR 230 per 6m boat which would certainly accommodate groups of 6-8 people. This exciting option may be cost effective for larger groups. Please let me know if you are interested. Alternatively, for the same price as an airport taxi (EUR40) we can arrange your own private car (with a charming and safe local driver!) to meet you at the airport, help with luggage and any enquiries and take you directly to the ferry port to avoid that initial hassle in dealing with taxi drivers!


Having successfully rented our property on Brac for a number of years we have taken the plunge and bought another prime property, nestled in the heart of Diocletian's palace in Split(see listing 1300888)This 120 meter, 1st floor apartment with its own private terrace (a rarity in Diocletian's palace) is simply stunning, is recently fully renovated and now available for rental. If a two-stop holiday is something you are interested in i.e. min 3 days in bustling Split city and it's great restaurants and shops coupled with a min 4 day stay on the island (only 40 mins away) with its great swimming and pure relaxation please let us know ...

Car: Recommended

The property is situated in Postira, Island of Brac - a beautiful and unspoilt fishing village on the Island of Brac. The Island of Brac is just a 45 min ferry boat journey from Split centre - ferries/car ferries are frequent in summer, approx every hour.

The village of Postira enjoys 5+restaurants and a number of bars all of which thrive in the summer months though are never loud or noisy. Fresh caught fish can be bought from the fishing boats in the morning.

Postira is a good base from which to explore the rest of Brac and the other Dalmatian Islands. Brac enjoys many secluded beaches including the beautiful sandy beach of Lovrecina, just over 2km from IIlyria.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We are a British family who first fell in love with the beauty of Croatia in 2004. We bought this ruin of a fisherman's cottage because of its wonderful location right on the Adriatic sea. It has been a wonderful holiday destination for our family as well as the countless visitors we've hosted each year.

Why the Owner Chose Postira:
This property really does offer visitors the best a seaside holiday has to offer. It's perfectly located right on the water's edge. The Adriatic is wonderful for swimming with water temperatures peaking at about 24 - 28 degrees Celsius in peak season. The cottage is located in a working fishing village environment where most inhabitants live directly from the land or sea

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are now able to offer guests a two stop holiday experience, with a fisherman's cottage on Brac and a luxurious inner city apartment ( sleeping ) in the heart of the roman Diocletian's palace in Split, see property no. 1300888.
