Brac villas with pools, holiday homes for letting, self-catering accommodation, cottages to rent, vacation rentals for family holidays on the beautiful island of Brac, Croatia.
Brac is the first big island to be found off the mainland of Croatia from Split. A pretty spot with quaint harbours bobbing with traditional, colourful fishing boats.
The main port and indeed the main town on the island of Brac is Supetar although it's not a place where Brac villa holiday visitors tend to stay, it is quite a functional place and has the main supermarket. There is a regular ferry connection with Split both for hydrofoils and car ferries. We can arrange airport transfers from Split, to your villa using our local agents who are highly experienced at this, the cost is around 160€ one way for up to 8 people including the ferry. Once on the island, you can hire a car for a day or two to explore as and when you wish. Or you can travel to the mainland and do the same there. Again our English speaking agent on the island can help you organise all this.
There is also a ferry connection to the Croatian mainland from the small port of Sumartin to the pretty seaside town of Makarska which is where many of the locals living on the east of the island do their shopping or go for a day out. Croatian island life is like that, it is very convenient and easy to catch a ferry and often the preferred option.
The island of Brac enjoy fantastic weather from April to October and also has very mild winters. It can get quite hot in July and August but all our villas have air conditioning so there is nothing to worry about there. There is very little rainfall in Summer.
The island is a paradise for swimming and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic. Sailing and windsurfing are very popular along with other water sports. Fishing is also very good. There are some nice hikes in the hills and the Sutivan nature park has all sorts ranging from mountain biking to rock climbing as well as play areas for children plus nice paths for walking.
The island is quite mountainous in the middle and there are a number of spots with absolutely stunning views of the nearby islands and the mainland. Olive oil is produced on the island which is also well known for its carved white stone. Apparently, the stone for the White House came from Brac.
