We are delighted to have found this new villa located on the Island of Brac in the charming old village called Skrip only 10km away from Supetar ferry port. This properry is in a unique position in a most unspoilt spot on a hill looking down over fabulous sea views. The village of Skrip is absolutely delightful with a collection of old stone houses with wooden shutters; it is the oldest place on the Island and has just 200 inhabitants; it dates from the Antic period hundreds of years before Christ and you can still find stone blocks from the Monolithic Age. There is a famous Museum by the Church of St. Jelena in the village where you can find a lot of pictures and artefacts presenting the history of island Brac. The surrounding area is well known for growing fruit, grape, olive and vegetables. A local shop is only 300 metres from the house and can provide you with everyday needs.
For a better range of shops, bars and excellent restaurants you can go to Splitska (5km) or Supetar (10km). In Splitska you can stroll along a seaside promenade alongside which are a choice of several restaurants with outdoor tables; we recommend 'Vala' or 'Kod Tonca', both of which serve fresh fish or grilled meats. In Splitska there is also a beautiful pebble beach in a cove with crystal clear waters. You could also drive 10 minutes to the coastal village of Postire which has bars and shops and some good retaurants such as «Bavaria» and «Lipa». The village of Bol is on the south side of the Island about 40 minutes away and has the best beach on Croatia called the 'Golden Cape'. Also you should make a visit to the highest point on the Island called Vidova Gora (778 metres) which has panoramic views across Dalmatia., as well as a wonderful restaurant serving the best lamb that anyone in Croatian Affair has eaten!
