Villa Rozetta is a stunning and spectacular seaside villa in the village of Sumartin on the island of Brac. The island itself is a magical place. Villa Rozetta is equally magical, with spectacular sea views from the windows, terraces and balconies.
Rozetta is in an exclusive position since in Croatia villas are rarely built directly by the sea. As Villa Rozetta is on the beach and has its own sea access, the luxury of the villa and the surroundings can be enjoyed with a great degree of privacy. The villa was rebuilt, refurbished and fitted out with new, elegant and comfortable furniture in 2010. It is built in local stone, and its open plan terraces and wrought iron balconies give it a special appeal. It is surrounded by a pine wooded garden full of Mediterranean plants, even its own organic vegetable patch.
Inside, a mixture of stone walls, stone and wooden floors and large picture windows create a sense of being outdoors, and the blue sea can be glimpsed through the pine trees from all over the house. Every detail is attended to, from wonderful sitting areas, to designer bathrooms fitted with Philippe Starck furniture, hand made local olive oil soaps, top quality linen and huge bath sheets. The beach is reached by a few steps from the villa, where numerous sun loungers and sun umbrellas are provided for the guests. The house manager will greet you and several staff will be on hand for you daily. The villa is built on a headland, five minute drive from the village of Sumartin and all its shops, cafes and amenities, and sits in a quiet bay full of pine trees and wild rosemary.
The island of Brac is easily accessible by ferry from Split to Supetar, which goes round the clock during the summer season, and several times a day during the rest of the year. Another ferry goes from mainland Makarska directly to Sumartin, which is closest to the villa. Low cost 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.
