Bol, Brac island, Split Region
€1200 - €2550 per week
Dream Villa is a very unique newly built small luxury sea front villa seven kilometres outside of the beautiful town of Bol on the island of Brac. There is a beach and a cave with the beach inside, just in front of the property. Stone steps lead down to the beach. Brac is an unspoilt sun drenched island with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) in Bol, within easy reach of this villa. The predominant impression of Brac is vast fields of olive trees and vineyards, ancient stone built walls and small country lanes, the pungent scent of dry herbs and clean sea. Along the island are dotted old towns, villages and settlements of white stone houses, some covered with terracotta curved tiles, and the more ancient ones with large rough slates painted white, to protect the dwellers from the summer heat.
World famous Golden Horn beach in Bol on Brac
It is a beautiful island full of sandy and pebbly beaches, hidden coves with small restaurants offering simple delicious local food of freshly caught fish and herb fed meat. It is a paradise for windsurfers and all those who like water sports, but it is also a place of great traditions and culture, so close to the mainland town of Split, with 2000 years of history, the great Roman Diocletian’s palace, magnificent Roman Forum, Venetian palazzos and squares surrounded by sublime ice cream cafes, markets, galleries, antique shops, excellent restaurants and a lively night life.
The villa is built for its ecologically-sensitive owners to the highest standard of ecological workmanship, with top quality insulation which keeps it cool in the summer and warm in the winter months. The villa comprises of 80 square metres of living space arranged on one floor, with a small galleried area off one of the bedrooms, with the space for an extra bed and one additional sleeping place in the living area, sleeping six persons maximum.
The villa is powered by solar heating and an additional generator. Plenty of clean water is provided from the outside rainwater tank for all cooking and washing needs and this water also supplies the bathroom and kitchen. Ten litres of drinking water are provided in the welcome pack, and all shops stock drinking water.
In the summer, the sea breeze at night keeps the bedrooms cool, and the house is also cool during the day without the need for air conditioning.
