The characterful Villa Lilijana sits quietly in the small fishing village of Sumartin on the glorious Croatian island of Brac. Sumartin is a delightful, peaceful resort on Brac’s eastern coast which faces Makarska on the mainland. It offers numerous nearby beaches and coves including Rasotica, Zukovik, Radovnja, Studena, Zvirje and Spilice making it one of the most sought after resorts. Sumartin enjoys a beautiful church, a gorgeous stone bell tower and a Franciscan monastery St Martin after which the village got its name. Foodies love the fresh fish, home made olive oil, local cheese and wines that are served in the village restaurants. Brac is a gorgeous island with plenty to discover including the famous Zlatni Rat Beach at Bol, on the south of the island. Photographs of this captivating beach adorn most of Croatia’s tourism posters. It is one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean, lined with decades-old pine trees and boasting shimmering fine sand and crystal clear sea with beautiful blue hues. The island is blessed with stunning scenery, charming villages, fabulous coves and delightful wineries.

Villa Lilijana enjoys four bedrooms, sleeping up to seven guests plus a sofa bed in the master bedroom. The villa is very charming, offers delightful, characterful features and was completely restored some time ago. The location of the villa is excellent, just one hundred metres from the beach. Built in authentic Croatian stone, the villa is warm and welcoming.

The design of the villa is somewhat unusual with a large living space on the ground floor with the kitchen and one of the bedrooms, a living room on the first floor with three bedrooms and two bathrooms and another bedroom and bathroom on the upper floor. The cheerful yellow hued living space on the ground floor offers a simple living area, a dining space for ten guests with a traditional dresser and both a yellow kitchen and a blue one! If you do not want to cook much at all, there is a housekeeper who on request will provide some catering services as well as daily cleaning, for an additional fee of course.

Upstairs the living room enjoys wonderful sea views with sofas and chairs facing out to the sea. There is a balcony where guests can enjoy the panorama and perhaps an early morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine. The bedrooms vary in size and decor. The master bedroom offers a kingsize bed and a corner sofa bed which you are welcome to use for an extra guest, there are two futher double bedrooms and the last with a single bed. There is a range of furnishings, mostly vintage but there are some modern touches. Some of the rooms enjoys neutral colour palettes though there are some vibrant splashes of colour around and some charming exposed stone walls. There are two bathrooms on the first floor, another on the second and a toilet on the ground floor. Guests enjoy wonderful views from most of the rooms.

The garden and terrace are lovely. On different levels, you will enjoy the pool, a furnished sun deck, a Mediterranean garden and alfresco dining with a barbecue. It is a lovely space with much charm and gorgeous night lighting.

Villa Lilijana is located moments from the sea in the delightful village of Sumartin. The village was founded in 1645 by Dalmatian pilgrims who were trying to escape the Turks. The village’s Franciscan monastery and church appeal to history lovers. The village boasts irresistible beaches, crystal clear sea, rich culinary experiences and a warm welcome. There are a number of summer events including the Lady of the Angels festivity which is held annually on 2 August.

Brac is famous for it’s very attractive, white stone. The famous White House in Washington is made from Brac stone. It is also famous for its  ‘buhavica’ olive oil, cheese, wine, honey and wine. The Stina Winery on the waterfront at Bol is lovely and the Prosec, a little like Australian muscat, is delicious. Bol is the oldest town on the coast of Brac. Its sand and pebble beaches stretch for 10 km. The mesmerizing Zlatni Rat Beach is just one of them. Thanks to its particular shape, it one of the most exceptional beaches in the world. Zlatni Rat’s elegance and appeal have made it the symbol of both the town of Bol and Croatia. The beach is protected by the government of Croatia as a geo-morphological monument. In the town, you can visit many historical monuments including tombstones, a Roman water collection mechanism, pre-Roman churches, a Baroque Renaissance palace and lots more.

Sutivan is located on the northwest coast of Brac, in front of Split on the mainland. Sutivan is a small, tranquil village with beautiful beaches. The pretty promenade runs from the little harbour Lucica to the bays of Likve, Prubuje, Stinive, Stipanske, Male Tihe and the Vicja Luka harbour. Sutivan is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, mandarin fields and forests. Jakov Natalis-Bozicevic is a stunning building built in 1505 and the 17th century castle Kastil Marijanovic stands proud on the eastern part of the harbour. The summer cottage of Kavanjin was built between 1690 and 1705 with a pretty baroque garden. The village boasts several excellent restaurants and bars. A festival of extreme sports takes place in the village every May. The park is lovely with a small zoo as well as bowling, basketball, football and a small playground.

Milna, on the north-west side of Brac, was called ‘Valle di mille navi’ (the bay of a thousand ships) by the Venetians. Its stone houses stretch along a stunning coastline, small masterpieces of plebeian architecture and its Baroque church with its typical Dalmation bell tower is very beautiful. Milna will enchant you with its healthy Mediterranean cuisine, specialising in fresh fish, quality olive oil and home-made wines. You can enjoy sailing, fishing or scuba-diving from the harbours.

Also beautiful are the delightful coves of Osibova and Lucice, the Bobovisca harbour, Selca, Lozisca village and the nearby small island of Mrdulja situated at the entrance of the harbour.

From Sumartin you can head over to Makarska or from the north you can visit Split or Omis.

Region

The sun-kissed island of Brač, situated off Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian Coast, is much more than just a destination; it's an intriguing tapestry of culture, nature, and history. Brač is an island where the past and present seamlessly intertwine, and the beauty of the landscape is as enticing as its history is enthralling.

Located on the north coast of Brač, and connecting it to the mainland, is the port town of Supetar. It provides a warm welcome to the island, offering an array of cosy cafes serving up strong Croatian coffee and freshly baked pastries. The town’s palm-fringed promenade is a delightful spot for a stroll, and the Romanesque architecture and historic churches are testaments to its enduring history.

Just 40 minutes away, on the south coast of the island, is the idyllic town of Bol, renowned for its beautiful beaches. The most notable is the picture-perfect Zlatni Rat, known as the ‘Golden Horn’ - a stunning natural phenomenon that shifts shape with the tides and winds. The waters here are a dazzling shade of blue, offering a perfect setting for a day of relaxation and water sports.

The Bol Marina is lined with vibrant cafes and restaurants, the perfect place to delight in the local cuisine, including fresh seafood and exquisite Dalmatian wines. Walking along the charming seafront, you'll be immersed in the island's culture, with the scent of lavender lingering in the air from local shops selling handmade products.

Often listed as one of the prettiest towns in Europe, Pučišća is a small coastal town with a big personality, known for its white limestone and beautiful bay. As you wander through the town's enchanting streets, you'll encounter architectural gems built from the island's famous white stone that has been used in iconic structures worldwide, including the White House in Washington, D.C.

For the nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers, Brač offers an array of adventures. From windsurfing and scuba diving in the crystal-clear waters, to hiking the island's trails and cycling through the picturesque countryside, there's no shortage of activities to keep you engaged. A visit to Vidova Gora is an absolute must for any active traveller after their adrenaline fix! As the highest peak of all the Adriatic islands, it offers a breathtaking panorama of Brač and its surrounding islands. The hike to the top is an invigorating experience, rewarding you with unobstructed views of the island's diverse landscapes.

Brač is perfectly situated for island-hopping adventures. A short ferry ride will take you to neighbouring islands like Hvar and Vis, each boasting their own personality and offering a unique experience. From the vibrant nightlife of Hvar to the unspoiled beauty of Vis, these nearby islands complement a trip to Brač with additional cultural and natural discoveries.

A trip to Brač is an immersive experience that allows you to embrace a piece of Croatian history, savour the delights of the Mediterranean, and connect with the soul of an island where time seems to stand still. It's an island that will leave you with lasting memories, longing to return to its irresistible allure.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Lilijana is ideal for a family holiday. There are two living areas so children can happily play or relax in one at the end of a busy day while you are preparing dinner. The pool is lovely and families love the alfresco dining area.

Brac Island is a fantastic destination for families. The beaches enjoy soft glistening sand or pebbles, crystal clear water and a good variety of watersports. Not only is Zladtni Rat Beach stunning, it is perfect for children. After a day on the beach you can head to the Vidova Gora lookout. It is the highest peak on Brac and boasts amazing, panoramic views down to Bol and the beach as well as other islands. Some of the other popular beaches are Supertar Bay, Sumartin Beach which is very close to the villa, Murvica Beach and Lovrecina Bay. You can take boat trips from many places or hire a boat for the day so that you can explore the coastline.

With stone and olive oil being so famous on the island, children may be interested to learn about the island and its industries. Visitors can join an informative tour of a stone masonry school in Pucisca, visit a traditional olive oil factory in Skrip and explore many historic buildings on the island. Skrip village is the oldest on the island so you will probably find the museum there fascinating.

At Supertar there is a little submarine in the harbour, mini golf and an inflatable water play area. You can hire quad bikes for the day to drive around the island. There is also a small animal park above Supertar.

Cycling is very popular on Brac. There are so many places to hire bikes and so many biking trails to discover this wonderful, pretty island.

Reviews

  • Beautiful!

    on 02/09/2023

    The villa was spotless and extremely well equipped for all of our needs, as a family ranging from 19-81. Sumartin itself is a beautiful port we enjoyed watching the comings and goings and swimming in secluded bays, with clear blue water. If you want a quite location on a beautiful island this is the perfect place for you. We would definitely return.
