Villa Opius is an impressive 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom villa built of Brac stone (the same stone as the US White House). During the winter of 2016, the villa was completed to a very high luxury standard – the villa is now one of the most desirable on the Adriatic as not only is it an executive standard as it enjoys being in a quiet bay with a national park so it is very discreet yet just minutes to the local villages.
Fully staffed so that guests can relax and enjoy not only the beautiful villa but the surrounding areas. Our Villa Manager, Milka speaks perfect English, Croatian as well as German and is a History teacher so is very knowledgeable about the archeological sites to be found if guests are interested to learn more. The address is famous throughout Croatia on the Put Ruzmarine headland, this area is well known to be one of the finest addresses on the Dalmatian Coast.
Offering 5 bedrooms (one with child room attached), sleeping 11 – all with direct views of the Adriatic, 6 bathrooms, Media Room, Gym, Infrared sauna, Kayaks, Snorkel, and Fins, Stand up paddleboard, Infinity pool overlooking the sea, Jacuzzi, Cellar, two Kitchens. There is a Sonos music system with Bose speakers throughout the villa.
From Split, it is a 40-minute car ferry ride to Brac Island, then a 40-minute drive to the villa. Or take the transfer with our resident boat and skipper directly to the villa.
When you arrive at Villa Opius there is a beautiful garden with lavender, pines, palms, bougainvillea, rosemary, geraniums, and many other Mediterranean plants.
With a few steps stroll to the Adriatic sea, you can dive into the crystal water. There is also a buoy available to tie up the resident boat (extra charge) complete with a licensed skipper who is very experienced in the fantastic places to take clients from lavender fields, crystal clear bays with little restaurants that can only be reached via boat, vineyards, blue grotto and many more. This can be rented on a daily basis and arranged by the staff at the villa, it comes with all the “toys” to use such as a “hotdog” and “extreme II”. We also have new kayaks, new bikes, and a variety of other activities such as stand up paddleboard and board games.
Certain serenity can be found at Villa Opius due to the fact that it is built on a headland with pine trees and wild rosemary growing throughout the garden providing privacy and shade.
At Villa Opius we like to think that it is not just a Villa rental but a whole experience and that the guests will leave feeling relaxed and wanting to return.

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. Check them out!
Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
