This eco-friendly, solar powered villa overlooks a sheltered and peaceful bay near the town of Milna on the Island of Brac. The villa is light, bright, airy and spacious. The property is designed for outdoor living with terraces flowing out to the pool and barbecue areas. The walled garden is enclosed and is planted with aromatic Mediterranean flora such as jasmine, lavender and rosemary. The garden features many secluded areas to relax. The villa is set only about 50 metres back from the shoreline and has access to a private bathing platform right by the sea.

The villa has been beautifully furnished and provides accommodation for up to 10 people, with 4 large double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area plus scope for two more persons in the garden cottage which has a further double bed (using one of the bathrooms in the main house).

Villa Hybiscus is located in a quiet bay three kilometres from the attractive harbour town of Milna on the Dalmatian island of Brac, a beautiful unspoilt island close to the mainland and the fascinating city of Split. Milna offers a range of restaurants, cafes and bars, a local farmers market, shops and a supermarket The island's coastline is studded with villages built from the local white stone (a wing of the White House in Washington is built from the same stone). Inland, there are some charming old villages nestling between olive groves and vineyards. Sandy and pebbly beaches are everywhere and the spectacular beach in the little town of Bol, called the Golden Horn, is deemed to be one of the most beautiful in the world.

The island of Brac is easily accessible by ferry from Split, which goes round the clock during the summer season, and several times a day during the rest of the year. Low cost airlines (easyJet, German Wings, Scanjet and Flybe), British Airways and Croatia Airlines fly directly to Split. Split itself is full of antiquities, markets, galleries, restaurants, clubs and is famous for the palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian. It is well worth a visit. Superb local fresh fish and locally produced meat and wine are memorable and watersports are available. The climate is mild all year round, with over 300 days of sunshine. The sea is warm, clear and unpolluted, and everyone swims in it. This is an ideal holiday destinations for families, teenagers and adults.

There are no recent reviews.
Milna is the safest harbour on the island of Brac, for centuries welcoming sailors and yachtsmen coming from Split across the sea and now boasting two excellent marinas. It is on the north-west side of the island, 18km from Supetar where the Split ferry lands. The substantial village is centred around a huge bay with a very charming harbour full of yachts and fishing boats. Smart cafes and restaurants line the harbour and there are good bakeries, shops and market. A few minutes away are several beaches you can reach on foot. Typical Mediterranean stone cottages with red roofs give Milna its classical charm, and there is also a Baroque church with paintings of Venetian masters, worth seeing. There are some great villas with pools right in Milna town, and a bit further out of town are the Osibova, Lucica and Duboka Bays where you will find grand new villas perching on the seashore among pine woodland. Nearby Bobovišća village is also great to visit, with new luxurious villas as well. Water sports such as scuba-diving, sailing or fishing are available. In the summer Milna hosts a few summer fetes with song and dancing in the harbour, and a very popular “Fisherman’s Night” where you get traditional local food and music in the streets

Island of Brac

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.

The ferry timetable for the Jadrolinija line from Split to Supetar on the island of Brac can be found on the Jadrolinija website. Cars can be hired at Split Airport. They can also be hired on arrival at Supetar from local firm MB Renta on the harbour front. Scooters and bicycles can also be rented. The local bus company, Autotrans runs buses several times a day between the principal towns on the island. Timetables can be found on the Autotrans website.

There is also a regular car ferry service from Makarska on the mainland directly to Sumartin at the south east end of the island (see Jadrolinija website for sailing schedule and prices). This crossing is convenient if arriving from the direction of Dubrovnik. There is also a passenger ferry service to Brac running four days a week from Split directly to the town of Milna. Details also on the Jadrolinija website.

Brac has its own small airport near the town of Bol. Light aircraft can fly into this airport and there are connections from Split Airport. Information on the Brac airport website.

If travelling to Brac from the Dubrovnik direction it is preferable to take the ferry crossing from Makarska to Sumartin. The service is less frequent than the Split/Supetar crossing and it is essential to check the timetable on the Jadrolinija website.
