About Mrs Lesley-Anne Evans

I appreciate good food and wine and also love the outdoors, the waters are crystal clear and wonderful for swimming or enjoying by boat. The island is diverse and stunning I have travelled all over it and am amazed by its beauty. The ferry links are efficient and run year round. It is island life but not cut off at any time of the year.

Milna is a traditional fishing village that time has forgotten and I am so glad I found this gem in the Med.

If you have dogs and are flying from Stansted, consider letting them have their holiday with us instead of boarding kennels, contact me for more details.

Mrs Lesley-Anne Evans purchased this house in 2013

Why Mrs Lesley-Anne Evans chose Brac

The house is large, clean and comfortable. surrounded by gardens, a new plunge pool was built in 2016 with stunning views to the marina. The master bedroom has a terrace to relax and take in the scenery. The first time I visited Brac I fell in love with it. Brac has stunning scenery, dramatic landscapes, amazing sunsets and divine olive oil. Even when it rains the island is beautiful. I love Milna as it is historic and quaint with everything needed for daily living, the village in the Med that time forgot. Split is easily accessible all year round and the other islands are diverse and amazing. Brac has a great community feeling even in the winter months which can be equally stunning.

What makes this house unique

Gardens surround the property and a large plunge pool was added in 2016. Milna is walking distance with small shops, beaches and marina. There is a choice of restaurants and cafes, most of which are open all year round. The ferry at Supetar is efficient and only 17km from the property contact Jadrolinija for timetables. The tourist office in Milna can help you plan excursions by bike, car or boat.

I love seeing visiting sailing boats come in to the marina and people watching with a glass of locally produced wine. The cafe on the marina also has Wifi access if you really can not live without!

Milna Villa - great family holiday location

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely property, well maintained, clean and provisioned with pretty much all we needed (including a BBQ and private outside dining space). Located very close to Milna harbour with outstanding views and proximity to all local amenities (my wife enjoyed the chance to buy fresh fish from the local fishermen in the morning and the local bakeries supplied fantastic wares). We especially enjoyed having our own private plunge pool which was much larger than we had thought it was going to be - it was more than adequate for our family needs (and there were six of us).

There is also nearby sea swimming just around the harbour as well as a few decent local restaurants (arguably the best of these is literally two minutes down the hill from the property).

All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed lazing about and when we felt more ambitious it was easy to hire bikes/boats or even take a day trip to Hvar for a change of pace.

We transferred from Supertar and the taxi services were good and efficient (though it helps to have local contact to explain where to go - street names being somewhat rare). We found the on-site factor to be very helpful (she organised our return transfer taxi for us) and all the locals we encountered were very friendly and helpful.

We'd have no hesitation in recommending this as an ideal family retreat in the sun that can be as quiet or as activity packed as you wish. The pool was a definite hit with the kids and its very refreshing to have a cool plunge and cold drink whilst taking in the vista over the harbour.

Owner's Response: Hi James Thank you so much for a positive review. I am so glad you found Milna as stunning as we do. As you say you can have a lazy or activity packed holiday on the island and the house is only walking distance to all the amenities but far enough to not be bothered by anyone else! I hope you decide to return one day. Kind regards Lesley-Anne

Wonderful Villa, Fabulous Views.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from 11 days in Milna, what a wonderful holiday we have had. A family of 5, 3 adult children stayed here - enjoyed the pool enormously, stunning views, comfortable living conditions - great beds, nice linen, adequate cooking facilities, very useful AC! Clean and tidy, just as the photos depict. Tip - keep the door to the conservatory open to the sitting room with the AC on, then both rooms are cooled and it probably helps to fridge too. Otherwise it can get very hot. The walk into the town/harbour is down a very steep track, so beware if you are of limited mobility as the walk up is hard going. Probably 10 mins. The marina has everything you need, lovely bars/cafes, supermarkets and fabulous bakeries which are open all the time and the bread and cakes are so fresh. One can sit and watch the yachts for hours, the sun goes down in the distance and then there was often live music to listen to while eating. We went scuba diving, just along the marina and paddle boarding. Found local coves - gorgeous and quiet (car needed). Bought fresh fish in the early morning from the locals. Drank cocktails at happy hour. Children loved the pizzas, which could be taken away. There was a small covered fruit and veg market too.

I would recommend Milna to anyone who wants to relax, but also have the opportunity of activities too. Not over busy for August. Kind friendly locals, all speak enough English. Lesley-Anne was very helpful, good contact as I was booking. I spoke to her a few times just to clarify points in the months before we left the UK. She had someone in Milna to meet us, we had good directions from the ferry too. All in all this is the best holiday we have had - and would go back in a heartbeat. I would happily answer any questions.

Owner's Response: Dear Carolyn I am so pleased you loved Milna as we do. It is difficult to convey all the benefits and set our house apart from other holiday homes on offer but I am glad you agree! I hope you will return one day, maybe out of season to enjoy the difference, we have been in December and it was much quieter but with more of a community feel and still warm. We lit the wood burner at night instead of using the AC and it was very cosy. Kind regards Lesley-Anne

Fabulous location close to the cafes of Milna but far enough out to be quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Milna is a beautiful unspoilt little port town. Pebble beaches are a short walk away where the water is very clear. Great for snorkeling.

Lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from. Many serving excellent sea food. It isn't cheap though. Coffee and cossiant in the morning was very reasonable but evening meals are fairly similar to UK prices.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Stunning. House was beautiful and very homely and welcoming. The pool was an amazing bonus as was the air conditioning as it was very hot. Milna is beautiful and unspoilt by tourism. The locals are lovely. We spent a day in Bol but missed Milna and couldn't wait to get back. I would definitely recommend it. I will return for sure. I would also recommend the wine tasting. The lady was lovely. Thank you for a really enjoyable holiday.

Tremendous stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this villa, it ticked all the boxes. The view from the swimming pool overlooking the marina is surely one of the best views within this small, quaint town. We used the BBQ most nights and even went down to the marina for 7am to purchase the fishermen's fresh catch. Milna has plenty of nice seafood restaurants and we particularly enjoyed having a few cocktails watching the swanky boats moor up. The holiday was everything we could have wished for; incredibly relaxing, lovely food, lovely people and great accommodation. Take me back!!

Chilled out week in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 adults and the house was more than ideal for our use. Location great, really enjoyed using the BBQ and when we booked back in April we didn't realise a pool would be installed by the time we got there. It was a very hot week so after a day on the beach and a short but steep walk up the hill from the village it was a very welcome sight. The outdoor shower by the pool has possibly the best view ever looking down onto the picturesque Milna harbour. Well maintained modern property with beautiful, crisp linen bedding and towels just like a good hotel. We didn't hire a car for the week as we always planned to relax and chill and we weren't disappointed as there is plenty to enjoy at Milna, with the beach, cycling and walking or just purely chilling out! One of the highlights was when we hired a boat (courtesy of Tony & his boat Olinta) for a day and he took us to several pretty bays and inlets to snorkel and swim which we felt was a much more relaxing way to sightsee. Besides the BBQ we felt some of our best eating experiences were at Restaurant Omo and the pizza restaurant by Milna harbour. We would love to come back again one day either with family or friends and would not hesitate to recommend the property and Milna as the owner was extremely helpful and communicative with any enquiries we made.

Owner's Response: Hi Thank you so much for your review. Milna is a beautiful place and we do our best to keep the house in good order! The pool was added this year and has certainly proved a success especially as the weather has been so hot. I look forward to welcoming you again. Kind regards Lesley-Anne
