Activities of Interest
- Wine Country
- Brac is renowned for its wine. The most common grape varieties planted on the island are Posip (white wine), and Plavac Mali (red wine). Winemakers: Hrvoje Bakovic from Murvica, and family Senjkovic from Nerezisca.
- Brac is a great place for hiking enthusiasts. Covered in olive groves and pine forests, the island offers lots of hiking opportunities: from gentle strolls to challenging hikes.
- The island is great for all sorts of water sports; sea kayaking, windsurfing, fishing and dolphin watching.
Places of Interest
- The most famous beach on the island is the Zlatni Rat beach. Located at the west end of Bol, this 1 km long beach stretches into the sea in a shape of a cone. It’s a wonderful beach to swim, but it gets really crowded in high season.
- Hvar is a neighboring island easy to reach from Brac, it’s simply a must-do.
- The oldest settlement on the island, Skrip is simply a must-visit place. It’s located inland, not far from Supetar. Skrip is rich in history and a great alternative to a hustle and bustle of coastline towns.
- South shores of the island of Brac were designed military zones in ex-Yugoslavia. Former submarine pens that can be found in Maslinova, Kruscica and Smrka bays are seen today as a shelter for local fishermen, a tourist attraction and swimming spots.
Life on Brac Island was wonderful in so many ways as if living in a fabulous European movie. Akuna Villa has a fantastic floorplan offering privacy and beautiful views from every room. The early morning ocean kayaking and afternoon bike rides were magical. Although charming in and of themselves, anticipate that trips to the mainland will take some time as the options for ferries at either end of the island are both just under an hour once on the boat. Consider this as more opportunities to enjoy the stunning mountain views and coastal towns and cities. We will be back to Croatia soon. Loved it. ”
Beautiful 5 star plus holiday
This is truly a wow factor home. It is jaw dropping from the moment you step inside. The wonderful views, beautiful high spec design details, location, amenities (there's an outdoor jacuzzi, gym, cinema room, table football, sauna, wine cellar, heated pool, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, fishing rods), wonderful housekeeper... the list is endless. This house is the best rental home we have ever stayed in. It is luxurious, comfortable and very special. Being designers, we go away for inspiration but often find it hard to find places that hit the mark. This place more than exceeded all expectations. The location is sublime. A highlight was being able to paddle to the shop for provisions (although the housekeeper would gladly do all shopping). The sea is so clear you feel you could drink it. It is a piece of heaven; unspoilt, far from the madding crowds, private and a wonderful place to holiday as a family or group of friends. ”
We visited Villa Akula in October which can be a bit cool. However the weather was perfect. We used Simon the boat skipper to take us on several tours he was great. Milka the house manager acted to help fulfill any need. She lined up dinners, bikes, taxis, a pizza night and directed the staff to keep the house in order. The house is everything it claims to be, Beautiful, wonderfully decorated, spacious, modern, serene ... We could list adjectives for another two paragraphs... stated simply ,,, perfect. Thanks for making it available Adele, we wil not forget it. ”
The home is fantastic everything you want in the house. Milki The housekeeper was outstanding helping us who's shopping and also telling us where to go Simon, milki's husband was also very helpful he put a gate up for the children in the boat trip is awesome . We had one night catered the table was set beautifully and the food is very Croatian the lamb could be cooked a little bit longer but otherwise everything is fantastic We would recognize other people to either rent a car or to use the local taxi so you can go to look at things on the Island we were okay because we had two young children. The owner Adele was also very helpful with the emails and told us exactly what to do . This great third home exchange is one of the best I recommend that you take it. I give this villa for Max and hope to return one day again or one of her other exchanges Gloria and Richard Bellack. ”
VIlla Akuna, Brac, Croatia
Beautiful villa in the most beautiful, unspoiled, non-commercial island in Croatia. The villa provided a speedboat (at a very reasonable extra cost) which our group of 8 used almost every day to visit lovely villages where we toured and had delicious lunches or dinners. The fresh seafood is amazing. The water is crystal clear and we swam and kayaked every day, even though it was mid-May. The villa manager, Milka, is the most upbeat, charming, attractive and vivacious person and organized everything for us -- from delicious dinners at home, to vans to take us touring, to anything else we could possibly ask for. It truly was one of the most fabulous trips, in one of the most beautiful countries, ever. Pat Magdol”
