Tuscany-Styled Villa with Superb View of Adriatic and Private Swimming Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Villa in Skrip, Island of Brac, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia - Secluded Location in the Oldest Settlement of Brac Island Overlooking the Sea

This superb Tuscany-styled villa can most comfortably host a party of six in the magnificent settings of the town of Škrip - the oldest settlement in Brac. Villa Kolacje is new but designed traditionally, with more than 200 sq.m. of carefully tailored space indoors. The exterior offers the best view of the Northern side of Brac to the coastline that engulfs the area from beyond the scenic Trogir to the Makarska Riviera. The view to be enjoyed from the private outdoors swimming pool is entirely unique to this villa and cannot be matched by any other accommodation in Brac. The villa has two bedrooms downstairs (queen sized bed and two single beds) and a large gallery area upstairs (queen sized bed). In the living room area, there's a large sofa (that stretches into bed if needed). The kitchen is fully equipped incl. dishwasher and one of the three bathrooms has a washing machine. A spacious L-shaped terrace follows the view to the Adriatic and offers beautifully arranged gardens with Mediterranean plants, flowers and trees. The sizeable swimming pool stretches to the old stone walls, all laid manually in the traditional Brac style. The villa has its own parking. The area is isolated and very quiet making it suitable for retreats and holidays all year round. Local supermarket is only 3-minute walk from the villa, while Škrip offers a great restaurant and some cafés/tavernas. Škrip also hosts the museum of the island and is located on the popular cycling paths, only 4 kilometres from the port of Supetar. Beaches and larger towns are only 4-5 minute drive away, as are larger supermarkets. Beautiful, picturesque Splitska with beautiful beaches is a short ride or a 20 min walk away.

About the Owner

The owner was born in Croatia and has spent most summers indeed at the island of Brac. Finally in 2008 he bought three newly built apartments so that he can keep coming back to the place he loves most. He currently heads a research institution in Norway 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. The owner has two more properties advertised at this site since 2011 that have had dozens of very pleased customers. The villa is the latest acquisition that caters to different clients as it's one of the top properties available to rent in the area.

Gorgeous location, fantastic home, welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely and relaxing holiday staying at this pretty and well equipped villa in Skrip.

The village is fairly central and quiet, away from the crowds but close to nearby towns for shopping and eating.

The villa had everything we needed and more. The pics we felt in fact didn't do justice to how lovely it is in reality.

The garden is beautiful, little pool was perfect for the kids and the views are spectacular. Upper balcony was gorgeous for sunset drinks or watching the lights on the mainland twinkle at night.

Boris was really lovely and welcomed us warmly, and made us feel very at home. He helped us out very quickly when we contacted him.

We loved our time here and would definitely recommend it to anyone. We didn't want to come home.

We enjoyed several meals at nearby Postira, Splitska is very pretty and the kids enjoyed the sandy beach at Lovrecina. We drove along the coast as far as Milna and across the island to Bol and Zlatni Ray beach. All the days out were fun. The local Brac museum is worth a visit, and if you fancy a short walk you can see Hercules in the Roman quarry.

Big thumbs up from young and old alike.

Location

From the Owner

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, Škrip was first mentioned in the 9th century AD. It is a little Mediterranean town located on the northern side of the island Brač, 4 kilometres from the island's port of Supetar. Overlooking the clear blue of the Adriatic, Škrip 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 tangerines.

Special interest holidays:

We provide exclusive services to our clients, including private yoga classes and massage on site (sports, deep tissue, relaxation...). Other types of retreats can be arranged, including yoga, meditation, silent etc. on request.

Coast/Beach:

Variety of beaches are within easy driving distance of 5 to 10 minutes. These include coves with sand, pebbles or simply gentle rocks all of which sheltered by the wonderful pine woods and the music of crickets. Going north takes you to the most famous Brac beach of Zlatni rat (with the tip that moves through the day). A nice long sand beach Lovrecina is 15 minutes from the villa. There are many secluded spots along the coast where you can enjoy solitude even in the peak tourist season.

Travel:

Split airport is the nearest international airport. A frequent shuttle bus takes you to the ferry port, from where a ferry takes you to the island of Brac every hour (a journey of 50 minutes). There are buses and taxis that take you to Škrip (near the villa) from the arrival port of Supetar - a 4km journey.

Distances:

Supermarket is 3 minute walk away. Several restaurants, bars and taverns are within a 10 minute walk. The museum of the island is 7 minute walk away.

Neighbouring towns of Splitska, Postira and especially Supetar offer a larger choice of shops, restaurants and nightlife, but require driving - from 5 to 10 minutes by car.

Beaches are within driving distance - from 4 to 15 minutes depending on the desired location and type of spot. A vehicle is generally desirable when located in Škrip.

Further Details:

Brac and its surroundings offer you an amazing holiday opportunity through much of the year. You can visit amazing sites, have an active, adventurous break and/or enjoy the rich culture and culinary specialities. Fascinating towns and other location at the island and day trips beyond it guarantee amazingly rich days and experiences of a lifetime. From simple pinewood walks or jogging, popular Škrip biking, to very demanding adventure activities, Brac will keep you challenged. History of Brac and Dalmatian date dozens of centuries back and will keep impressing you. The food is a uniquely rich pleasure, with exceptionally good local olive oil and wine produced in the region of Škrip and the surroundings.

Facilities

From the Owner

There are so many things we love about our villa it's difficult to know where to start. The views are stunning, the outdoors spectacular, the pool is a superb facility, the kitchen is better equipped and more spacious than most homes. The showers are lovely and powerful, the beds comfortable. The location is perfect for the views or sports, but also secluded and quiet. You can get fresh bread from the nearby supermarket in the morning. And it's just hard to beat sipping a cool drink on the terrace on a summer's evening watching the sunset!
