The simplest connection to the island is to fly to Split and take the regular ferry crossings from Split ferry port to Supetar on Brac. The ferry port is a 25 minute drive from Split Airport. The ferry (car or foot passenger) takes 45 minutes and there are regular crossings during the summer. A bus service from Split Airport to the ferry port in Split is also available.

We had a lovely time at Villa Relax, and would wholeheartedly recommend it to families or groups who want to spend time in a quiet fishing village. The villa was superbly prepared, and the host Angela was extremely hospitable and always available to help out. Access to the villa was very good and suited to anyone with mobility problems provided they can manage a couple of small steps. Sumartin is a beautiful small fishing village with good local restaurants, a small market shop and friendly locals.

We had a great time, (although the weather was a bit on and off). The house was perfect, great location with only 50 metres to the sea. We enjoyed Sumartin, which was a very nice and quiet fishing village. Also the host was very service minded, so we are very happy with the stay.

Just got back from Croatia on Saturday and wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely wonderful holiday in Villa Relax, Sumartin. The accommodation is absolutely first class. Your local agent could not have been more helpful. She is an excellent asset, takes great pride in her properties and makes every effort to make sure that guests are comfortable and have everything they need (including fresh fish and speedboats!).
