Beautiful home from home in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this house and I have to say the reallity was even better than the beautiful pictures. Mira was a delight to deal with and our welcome from the ferry was warm and the introduction to the house comprehensive. The welcome pack was fabulous and I have to say the house was spotless and the huge welcome pack a real bonus. Mira's husband installs pools and his handiwork was on display....we swam every day. I would recommend a car but we also had the opportunity to walk and find remote coves to swim. All in all an incredibly relaxing break in a beautiful house. I would unreservedly recommend.

Lovingly restored rustic villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nikola is a wonderful retreat in a quiet and timeless location. The building has been restored to an excellent standard with a fabulous swimming pool and patio area. Mira was an excellent host, very attentive and quick to respond to all our questions. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly at Rogac by both Mira and Nikolai and the fridge was well stocked with provisions.

Solta is a quiet Island with beautiful coves to explore and plenty of nice restaurants. Everyone is friendly and the coastal villages are not overcrowded; we especially enjoyed visiting Maslinica and Stomorska where we would spend the afternoon on the pebbled beach and swim in the crystal clear water.

We feel a car is essential to visit the whole of the island and to get provisions from the small supermarkets.

We would highly recommend this Villa and location; many thanks again to Mira and her son Nikolai.

A wonderful peaceful retreat with my family

  • 5 of 5

From the minute my husband and I and our 3 young sons booked our stay on solta, Mira has been so helpful and replied to all my emails very quickly.

After a very long day (we flew into Dubrovnik, then had a 3.5 hr drive to Split. We then missed the ferry by 2 cars (you MUST get to port at least 2/1.5 hours before the departing time. There is no guarantee that you will get a specific ferry time, despite booking it!) so we had to wait another 2 hours.) Mira was very patient and we met her and Nikolai briefly at Rogac as they were getting our ferry back to split. They left such an impression on us that our 3 young sons were sad they weren't staying with us!

Villa Nikola was just lovely. We had a very generous 'welcome pack' or fresh fruit and goodies (including wine!) in the fridge. The house is spotless and the bedrooms very spacious as well as having 2 bathrooms and a downstairs loo. The dishwasher and washing machine helped make it even more of a holiday!

You do need a car. The nearest supermarket is in Grohote 5 minutes away. Please note that the supermarkets are very small but do obviously sell the essentials and we used the market opposite for fresh fruit and veg.

We had bbqs most days and we spent the evenings playing games or reading.

The pool is amazing and a really good size. We were in it everyday and the boys loved it.

The sea is just beautiful and we loved exploring the island. As it is so small you don't need to spend too long in the car.

Our favourite beach was at maslinica as the boys found a diving board attached to rocks. It also has some shade. I really recommend purchasing some beach shoes as the beaches are really stoney.

Our favourite restaurant was Paserela in Rogac. The situation is just stunning and the boys loved watching the boats moor up or go past.

We loved the island of solta, it's peacefulness and way of life.

Mira and Nikola are wonderful people and hope to be back soon!

Solitude in Solta

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was really special. The villa had all that you could want for the perfect holiday. The facilities were excellent and Mira (the owner) and her son were very attentive and helpful. Solta is a delightful island. It has some beautiful villages, especially Stomorska and Malinica. You will need a car if you want to get about especially if it is hot. We had some gorgeous meals at two restaurants in particulate: Pasarella in Rigac and Turanj in Rogac. Do take some beach footwear as the swimming is fantastic but the beaches are quite rocky.

Villa Nikola summer 2016

  • 5 of 5

This small house accommodates very well for a family with 2A and 3C. All comfort you need, good equipped kitchen (in case you don't want to try all restaurants on the island or you are stacked every morning on a petit dejeuner) and a bbq for those who can't resist. Swimming pool and seats in top condition. Environment very quiet. We did stay for one week which is long enough to discover the island. Supermarket and local market with fresh veggies in less then a mile. Top holiday. Be sure you are on time on the boat, buying a ticket upfront does not give any guarantee on the departure times.

Island Solta has a rich past which you can feel as soon as you step off the ferry.

Vicinity of Split has permanently determined connection between Solta and this ancient Dalmatian centre.

Daily excursions to Split or surrounding islands are very pleasant and easy to organize due to

frequent ferry and boat lines.

In the summer period island is full of interesting events: exhibitions, recitals, “pirates nights“and concerts of original Dalmatian vocal bands-“Klape”.

Donje Selo is a picturesque, typical Mediterranean hamlet located by the main island road, near Srednje Selo.

Pay a short visit to the village on your way from Grohote to Maslinica or vice versa. Stroll through its stone-paved alleys and discover its secret corners. Today, it has an air of loveliness and simplicity due to a considerable number of stone houses restored for holiday renting.

We suggest you to go for a walk or ride along the biking trail,an alternative route to Maslinica, starting from Grohoteand passing through SrednjeSelo and DonjeSelo.

There is also a tiny road leading from the village to the beautiful bay of DonjaKrušica. Its inhabitants once made a living from fishing and farming. Today, they are mainly focused on producing olive oil and wine, while fishing became a hobby. With an increasing interest in tourism, DonjaKrušica is gradually becoming a tourist destination that attracts more and more tourists each year.

The settlement dates back from the period of Antiquity. Numerous archaeological finds, such as the remains of a villa rustica, the walls of a rectangular building with a floor mosaic, discovered on the upland of Gradine, ancient stone mounds and graves, and the remains of the foundations of the early Christian church of St. Jela from the 6th century testify to the old times. The first historical records of the settlement date back to the beginning of the 16th century.

Here you can find the churches of St. Martin and St. Jela. The Parish Church of St. Martin is an old cemetery church that has seen several refurbishments over the years.

The inhabitants of Donje Selo have preserved a long tradition of venerating St. Martin. Archaeologists have found a record titled 'The Letter of St. Martin, Bishop of the City of Tours', of unknown age, which has been preserved owing to a pastor's transcript from the 19th century. The veneration of St. Martin on the island represents a valuable part of the related cross-European cultural heritage. The 'Foot of St. Martin' was attached to the Confraternity House in DonjeSelo on 3 July 2010 to mark Šolta's joining the European Cultural Route 'Saint Martin of Tours'.

Come and experience the magic of life on the most beautiful and authentic Dalmatian island!
