Zoom in on Croatia: Best Croatia family villa holiday spots on the Brac island – Sumartin

by Saron Lease, Croatia Gems Company Founder & Director, 12th October 2023,

Brac is an easy ferry-hop from Split old town, making it an accessible island destination for those not wanting a long ferry journey after a tiring flight. Flights to Split airport are plentiful, connecting with many UK regional airports and Europe. Brac offers great family villas for summer holidays to Croatia with many pretty bays and inlets, beaches and lovely fishing villages and harbours to explore.

Saron Lease of Croatia Gems gives the lowdown on what Brac and Sumartin Bay has to offer…

Sumartin Bay

Brac Island has a feeling of Cornwall about it, with hidden coves and spectacular views, Sumartin, set at the eastern end of the island, has a nice buzz about it and is perfect for a family holiday in a Croatian villa.  It has everything you need with sea-edge restaurants and café bars and lovely Sumartin Beaches.

Head to the Puntinak area to find hidden coves and pretty little beaches, and some of the most exclusive villas on the island. There is a lot to explore in the vicinity including the famous Zlatni Rat Beaches and smart Bol Town which is well worth a visit. Plus there are some great places to visit by boat too – you can hop to Makarska from the bay very easily which is another great place to visit and nice day trip (ferry from Sumartin itself). There is also Mount Vidova Gora to climb with smashing views, or plenty of other activities like rent a jet ski, water skiing, banana ride, one of the beaches in Sumartin has an inflatable playground just off the beach for children. Or you can hire kayaks, SUP boards, rent bicycles and e-bikes and take an e-bike tour on this side of island or even to Bol.

Where to Stay?

There are a host of lovely Brac villas in this part of the island. We’d recommend the lovely Villa Sinatra – great for small families or a group of friends, lovely sea views, just yards from the sea. There’s a recommended restaurant just up the lane, plus an easy walk into Sumartin around the bay. It always gets good reviews from our guests. Villa Godi Star would be out next recommendation, for a larger group – fab sea views, the beach just down the steps and a host to spoil you or take you on adventures! Up in size again Villa Tika is arranged as apartments, but with great dining and socialising areas. So, it’s perfect for groups who like to holiday together but also like to retreat to get some privacy away from the group. Villa Tika is good as a multi-generation villa.

Looking for luxury?

Or if you are looking for luxury, you have a wide choice. For example Villa Mila has 6 bedrooms, resident boat and skipper to hire, maid and concierge service. It is an exceptional luxury villa, designed to maximise the sea views. It has sumptuous fixtures and fittings, and adorned with stunning objet d’art. You have 6 plush en-suite bedrooms with balconies, including an accessible en-suite bedroom, and lift Outside is a perfect infinity pool and private sea edge location. Villa Mila has two adjacent luxury sea edge ‘cousin villas’ in Villa Stara and Villa More. Both have 4 en-suite bedrooms and staff to help out so you can relax.

Around the Puntinak headland where you’ll find a trio of luxury villas. Villa Oceanfront, Villa Panorama and Villa Celeste (having six, five and four bedrooms respectively). All sea edge luxury in an exclusive location and with the staff to busy themselves so you don’t have to.

Feel free to search through our villas. If you don’t find what you want there, do have a look at our ‘By Request only’ villa portfolio. Alternatively, just give us a call or email us and we’ll find a lovely Croatia villa for you.
