Villa Lavander is an impressive villa built of Brac stone (the same stones as in the US White House), in Sumartin. The villa sleeps 14 people plus baby cot (with 6 bedrooms + 6 bathrooms plus 2 guest powder rooms). During winter of 2016/17 the villa was fully refurbished to a very high standard complete with divine new beds, large French doors, stone floors, antique fireplace, Juliette balconies, stone bathrooms with Phillip Starke whiteware, new kitchen from Italy making it one of the most desirable luxury villas on the Dalmatian Coast.
Upon arrival at Split airport, our Skipper and the private boat can be waiting to take guests directly to the waterfront villa or just hire a car and drive to the ferry terminal in Split town, this is an easy trip and well signposted. From Split it is a 40-minute modern car ferry ride to Brac Island, dolphins can often be seen on this beautiful trip. Once on the island, it is approximately a 30-minute drive to the villa. It is a straight forward journey.
The villa is 5 minutes drive to the nearest fishing village of Sumartin, where you will find a bakery, supermarket, and three restaurants and a number of cafe bars. The coffee culture is very strong in Croatia. The large village of Selca is also five minutes away which has beautiful architecture, small shops, and cafe bars as well as a few restaurants. There are two new bikes available at the villa, perfect for getting to the villages.
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. The villa has two brand new kayaks and two new bikes as well as a table tennis table
A half-hour car ferry ride away will take you to the sophisticated town of Makarska, there you will find divine architecture and shops as well as fine restaurants.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent.
