About the property

CR1477

These spacious, modern apartments make a luxurious base from which to enjoy the beauty of Croatia’s coast. The balcony, picture windows, and the floor to ceiling velux windows in the roof all afford fabulous views of the sea, the mountains and the spectacular sunsets. The apartments sit on the hillside above the historic fishing village of Postira on the island of Brac. They're ideally placed for swimming and snorkelling in the warm, crystal clear waters of the glistening Adriatic. The local food is delicious with harbour-side restaurants cooking fish straight from the boat. There’s walking and cycling along coastal paths and among the island’s famous olive groves. The beach is a pleasant 7 min walk and has a small terraced café. The supermarket and bus stop 1 min walk. The world heritage sites of Split and Trogir are only an hour’s ferry ride away. We'll also help you design your holidays and plan adventures in and around Brac.

About Boris Divjak

The owner was born in Croatia and has spent most summers indeed at the island of Brac. Finally in 2008 he bought the newly built apartments so that he can keep coming back to the place he loves most. He heads a research institution and travels a lot for business - Europe, Asia and Africa are the parts of the world he has professionally covered. He's also socially engaged in citizen's advocacy and has many hobbies that include diving, swimming, biking and marathon running (as well as a NAUI scuba divemaster). Brac is an ideal location for all these activities. He studied in the UK, USA and Austria.

Boris Divjak purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Boris Divjak chose Brac

Postira has everything we could want from a holiday. Beautiful beaches, fabulous swimming, great walks, and lovely food. The people are friendly, the town itself is quieter, but with a nice atmosphere. And the sun always seems to shine!

Placed in the authentic and unspoiled Mediterranean environment, amidst one of the richest archipelago in the world, the pristine and clam sea.

Postira was first mentioned in the 14th century. It is a little Mediterranean town located on the northern side of the island Brač, 8 kilometers from the island's port of Supetar. Coming out from the clear blue of the Adriatic, Postira climbs up the hill to embrace the centuries old olive fields and confluence of pine forests and vines as it descends back into the fertile valley of vineyards and tangerin

What makes this apartment unique

There are so many things we love about our apartments it's difficult to know where to start. The views are stunning, the windows spectacular, the kitchen diners are better equipped and more spacious than most homes. The showers are lovely and powerful, the beds comfortable, the location perfect for the beaches and also for popping to get your bread from the supermarket in the morning. And it's just hard to beat sipping a cool drink on the balcony on a summer's evening watching the sunset!

Great apartment and fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were so well looked after during our stay. Our suitcases were lost by the airport on arrival and our hosts family collected us from the ferry and took us to a shop to get some clothes and food. They then collected out bags a day later for us. We were also greeted at the apartment with homemade sweet treats, fresh figs, watermelon and wine. The most wonderful family who were their for our every enquiry. Highly recommend this spotlessly clean accommodation with incredible views

Owner's Response: Lara and her family were the dearest guests one could wish for. Extremely pleasant, polite, respectful and kind. Their kids were the two nicest children one could possibly host. We only regret their stay was only a week long, which doesn't give enough time to explore the island of Brac properly. We're hoping to host them again and show them some other wonderful places. They would be most welcome anytime! We thank them for their visit and wishing everyone a nice autumn!
