Description

Villa Rosemarine is an impressive villa built of Brac stone (the same stone as the US White House). From Split it is a 40 minute car ferry ride to Brac island, dolphins can often be seen from the ferry.Once on Brac Island it is a 40 minute drive to the villa.

The village of Selca is also five minutes away which has beautiful architecture, small shops and cafe bars as well as a few restaurants. Being right on the Adriatic sea the villa lends itself to many activities such as water skiing,scuba diving, fishing and sailing, all of which can be arranged by the villa managers who are available for up to eight hours per day.

A half hour car ferry ride from Sumartin will take you to the sophisticated town of Makarska, there you will find divine architecture and many designer shops as well as fine restaurants.

Infos/Activities

Split is the second largest city in Croatia and is the largest city on the Adriatic coast. Coupled with its strong history - it emerged from a settlement around a palace built by Roman emperor Diocletian, and the city was also important within Yugoslavia - this lively city sure is worth a visit, however brief.

Closest to Split is tiny Solta Island, The largest coves are at Stomorska, Rogac and Necujam on the northeastern coast but it can get windy. Nevertheless, Necujam has the largest (gravel) beach and it is well-maintained with beach showers and other conveniences. For swimming, you can also head to the Maslinica cove on the western coast which is protected by various offshore islets. Stomorska is the largest and most developed village. Here is where you'll find most of the island's cafes, restaurants and businesses as well as the island's. Only 19km long and five km wide, there's not a huge amount to do though, except explore one of the little villages or relax on one of the rocky beaches.

Brac Island (pronounced "Bratch") is the longest and most elevated island in central Dalmatia, 48km long and 14 km wide. Supetar is the main port of entry on Brac Island as well as its administrative centre. Although many people only give Supetar a passing glance on the way to the much more touristed Bol, it merits more. Fertile surrounding countryside with vineyards, olive groves and orchards, pine woods all along the coast, lovely bays with sandy beaches (particularly the bay of Vlacica) make Supetar an excellent base to explore the island. The harbour is an attractive place for a stroll and is backed by a small group of medieval streets. The most outstanding attraction is the 18th century Church of the Annunciation which is worth checking out for its 18th-century altar paintings and monumental staircase. On the western edge of town is a beach and watersports centre.

Zlatni Rat beach near Bol on Brac Island stretches like a finger into the Adriatic. As you can see here, this very exposed beach can catch the wind making it a favourite with windsurfers who flock here as soon as there's the faintest hint of mild weather. The beauty of this unique phenomenon is that the cape affords a wide range of swimming and sunbathing opportunities from shallow and shady to sunny and deep, depending on the time of day and the wind.

Activities in Croatia

Walking/Hiking: Croatia is perfectly suited for walkers, and there are numerous interesting walks to be had across the country. The most picturesque ones tend to be those in the National Parks, such as Plitvice Lakes, Krka and Paklenica National Parks and on the islands of Brijuni and Mljet. Those who are interested in something a bit more strenuous - hiking - may like to head to Mount Biokovo (above Makarska) and the Velebit mountains (northern Dalmatia).

Cycling: British company 2 Wheel Treks organise cycling holidays in Istria, Southern Dalmatia and the Makarska Riviera, on which you stay aboard a motor boat. After a morning spent cycling, you can decide whether to cycle again in the afternoon, or spend it cruising aboard the boat. Sounds delightful!Skedaddle are another company that offer cycling holidays in Istria.

Tennis:  Who can forget Goran Ivanisevic's classic triumph at Wimbledon in 2001? If you'd like to emulate at least a bit of his success, why not head to a tennis camp in Croatia? Unfortunately, you won't be able to have lessons from Goran himself, but there are good coaches and schools located at various places along the coast. One such place is Tennis Camp Umag, which is home to an ATP tennis event each summer. Many do not organise full package tours, so you must arrange your own travel arrangements.

Skiing: Over the years, we've received several enquiries from visitors about skiing in Croatia - no doubt prompted by the fantastic achievements of Croatian skiing stars Janica Kostelic and her brother Ivica. (Janica won 3 gold and 1 silver at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games at Salt Lake City, and a further 1 gold and 1 silver at the 2006 Games in Turin; Ivica won a silver medal at the 2006 Games, and two silver medals in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver - that's a lot of medals from the Kostelic family!) Unfortunately, we have to disappoint as Croatian skiing facilities cannot compare with those in nearby Slovenia, Austria and Italy. (Even Croatian skiers train in Austria!), head to Bjelolasica, where the Croatian Olympic centre is located. Another popular skiing location is just north of Zagreb at Mount Sljeme.

Diving: Diving is a very popular activity, as the sea is calm and beautifully clear. There are also quite a few ancient artefacts - both Greek and Roman - in the Adriatic sea. Diving courses are available, but if you're an experienced diver and don't need any courses, you'll still need to obtain a diving permit. There are also some restrictions on where you can and cannot dive. See Pro Diving Croatia for extensive information.

Cricket: Sure, not a sport that you'd immediately associate with Croatia - but it is one that is slowly growing in popularity in the country. Or, to be more precise, on the island of Vis! As of May 2008, cricket tours are due to start of 5/7/9-days duration that include at least a couple of games against Croatian opposition. (Including, of course, Vis CC.) See www.viscricket.com for further details.

Kiteboarding: Kiteboarding - a popular sport around the world - can be enjoyed in Bol on the island Brac. Kiteboarding is a surface water sport that uses the wind to pull a rider through the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard (similar to a wakeboard). Generally, kiteboarding refers to a style of riding known as freestyle or wake-style, whereas kitesurfing is more "wave-riding" oriented.
