HOLIDAY VILLAS ON BRAČ - EXPLORE THE ISLAND’S CULTURAL HERITAGE
After choosing the perfect vacation villa with a pool, relax on sun loungers in the shade of pine trees and the sound of a tireless orchestra of crickets, or use some of your time to explore the island’s heritage. From your holiday villa you will be able to tour the historical and natural beauties of the island. Visit the Blaca Desert, a medieval hermitage founded in the 16th century by the monks from Poljica fleeing the Turks. This monastic complex that comprises of a series of stone houses, monastery cells and a church is a unique monument with a rich inventory, preserved tools, astronomical instruments, a printing press and a library.
You will surely be "pulled out" of your holiday home with swimming pool by the music from one of the famous Brač “fjeras”. “Fjera” is a feast day of the patron saint of a particular town or village, marked by a liturgical celebration and procession, followed by music and entertainment. Every town on the island has its fjera and the summer calendar is filled with such celebrations. You are invited to join the party and maybe try some of the original Brač specialties, such as “procip” (young sheep cheese with caramel), “vitalac” (lamb dish) or “hrapoćuša” (Brač cake made of sugar, egg whites and walnuts).
WHAT TO SEE AND DO ON BRAČ WHILE STAYING IN A HOLIDAY VILLA?
While staying on Brač in a private villa with swimming pool, do not miss going to Zlatni rat, the famous pebble beach in Bol, which changes its shape depending on the currents and the wind. It is a paradise for surfers and kiters. If you feel adventurous, you can try out these sports yourself.
It’s worth to climb from Bol to Vidova gora (778 m) the highest peak of all of the Croatian islands. The view of numerous bays, beaches and surrounding islands is simply breathtaking.
If you decide to skip the afternoon relaxation by the pool of your holiday home, stop by Škrip, the oldest town on the island. Illyrian walls from 1400 BC were found here, on top of which a Roman mausoleum was built and then the fortress which hosts the island museum today.
Visit one of the stone-cutting workshops. Local white stone was used to build Diocletian's Palace and the White House in Washington (and most likely parts of the holiday villa where you are staying).
