Weathered sea masters set off before the first lights to reach the well kept secret fishing-grounds, saluting with a glance the chapel of St. Nicholas the Traveller, who once upon a time used to see the sailing-vessels to far-away seas.
The Dalmatia region
The island of Brac has got a long turist tradition based on it's natural beauties and warm hospitality. The cristal blue sea, amaizing number of sunny days, excelent cusine and manny attractions will do the rest. You can visit ancient villages, innumerable lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards, walk through the enchanting stone streets.
Brac Island is the third largest island of Croatia, with an area of about 396 km; approx. 36 km long and 4 to 13km wide, with 175km of coast line. Its highest peak Vidova Gora, 778m above the sea level, is also the highest peak of all the Croatian islands.
The island enjoys more than 2,700 hours, of sunshine annually; it is one of the sunniest regions in Croatia and has the truly Mediterranean climate. The summers are long and dry, the winters mild and rainy. The wettest months are November and December, the driest July and August. The temperature only very occasionally drops below O°C (winter average temperature is 9°C; on the other hand, more than a hundred days have a temperature of more than 25°C (which is the average summer temperature), and more than fifty days above 30°C. The settlements, on the western and southern coast of the island have the hottest climate
There are 23 little places on the island with the population of about 13,000. Supetar is economic, cultural and tourist center of the island with approximately 2600 inhabitans. This is usually the first place you get to on the island, with a ferry from Split.
Curiosity: for one whole year, Milna was the island capital under the supremecy of the Russian Tsar.
Milna is a small 16th c. village located on the western part of the islandof Brac. It is famous for it's marvellous bay, the birthplace of many of the worlds' sailing captains and ships of the 18th and 19th century!
Alongside the little harbour of Bobovisca, Milna is the only settlement on Brac's western coast, 18km from Supetar. This fishing village is set at the end of the biggest harbour on Brac, sheltered from the winds and exposed to the sun. Secure as it is, it was well known to the commanders of the emperor Diokletian's ships, in the time of the building of his palace in Split. Today it hosts a modern equipped marina which attracts many famous names on their fabulous super yachts.
Unlike other places on the island, Milna has preserved to a high degree, the harmony of civic buildings and fisherman houses on the coast and the rural architecture on the hill, from where the snake-like footpaths wind down to the vineyards and olive-groves. For many, the most beautiful harbour on Brac, forks into two channels, the two sunken valleys that descend from the interior. They bring the fertile alluvium and the refreshing breeze from the Brac upper valleys during hot summer nights. Between these two channels, Zalo and Pantera, a wide, blunt cape protrudes on whose clearing round the church and the old fort, the houses are gathered together. Their stone fronts are turned to the sun creating thus a wonderful local atmosphere valuable for tis being so typical in the Mediterranean environs.
There are a number of nearby seductive islands, like Hvar and Solta that are good ideas for a day trip and ofcourse, the ancient city of Split where you can admire the emperor Diokletian's palace, the old city, shop or enjoy a great night life.

“small but nice”
Originally we booked this just for my husband and I but fairly last minute my adult son said he could join us. Maki did let us know that the sofa bed was really only suitable for one adult or two children. The balcony offers lovely views of the harbour, and has a canopy to shade it. They gave us a third chair for the balcony. The sofa bed takes up most of the 'lounge' type area and once made up we found it was not that practical to put away. The kitchenette was a bit limited in crockery (2 bowls) and utensils (no bread knife) . It has a two ringed electric hob and microwave. The fridge freezer is of a generous size. The air con works well but is only in the kitchen/lounge area so we needed to leave the bedroom door wide open to keep the room cool at night. We found the large double bed really comfortable. The bathroom is excellent with a good shower. We were just minutes from the local bakery and restaurants. The beach and swimming area was just a pleasant 10min walk away. Overall this is a nice small flat best suited for 2.
Nice apartment, very centrally located in Milne, wonderful view from the balcony, and very friendly hosts too!
“Perfect quiet holiday”
A recently renovated apartment with a great view of beautiful Milna harbour. A new bathroom and a balcony on which to sit and breathe in fresh air and be with your special friend! The apartment is perfect for one or two and after three weeks travelling it was absolutely perfect for us.
“Hidden Gem, Fab views”
What a lovely apartment this was. Owner Maki and his wife were great . Apartment had everything you need in it. Fantastic views from every part of the apartment over the marina. Local supermarkets on your doorstep and a local bakery which opens early hours as the bakers work through the night. Fab eating places just a few steps from apartment .The owner helps you with transport and car hire and even offers you a drink with his family as a welcome. There is a lot of history behind the apartment passed on from Makes family which is very interesting. I did not want to leave this apartment as the views were just amazing from when you woke up till the sunset . There is a beach around the corner from apartment that you can walk to. I will definitely return to this apartment as it's great,everything you need on your doorstep and Milna is a lovely place to stay. Wifi was great and owners very welcoming. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
“Wonderful appartement with warm and friendly hosts.”
We had 18(!) wonderful days in this very nice, cosy appartement. It has the most fantastic wiev to the harbour and was very fresh, clean and nice. Even much better than the pictures can tell. Maki and his family are great hosts and was welcoming us in a very friendly way and made us feel at home. Milna is a very nice and quiet place to stay, but not too quiet. A lot of good restaurants and bars close by. The service was very friendly everywhere and the food very nice as well (and the wine!). The pebble "beach" was also close by with nice green, clean water. Go to Milna and this appartement! I promise you will not regret. We will definately come back. Thanks a lot! ;-)))
“Wonderful place to relax completely”
What a wonderful view! Initially I was a bit disappointed to find it was a harbour view and not a view out to sea - but it was lovely anyway, and in fact there was more to look at this way. I stayed a week in Milna and enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the world go by across the harbour. I had planned to rent a car for a couple of days and explore the island but in the end decided to stay put and go for complete relaxation. The bedroom, bathroom and balcony are lovely!! The rest of the apartment is very small, but perfectly adequate. On some days I shopped and cooked for myself, on others I went out to eat and had some lovely meals. I especially enjoyed having a bakery with fresh bread and breakfast rolls just two minutes' walk away. Perfect to take back to the balcony for more people-watching. There are several restaurants, a couple of take-away places, and lovely ice cream. The family (downstairs) were very welcoming and friendly. They invited me to Sunday lunch of fresh fish cooked on an open fire, bread and olive oil, and much wine. It was nice to have their cheerful greetings as I went in and out. The 'beaches' within walking distance are mostly concrete sunbathing platforms with access for swimming; a couple of bits of shingle beach. The sea is lovely and clear. The journey from Split is easy and very pretty. Public transport on the island is OK for getting to and fro, but doesn't work well for going on day trips. If you want to go around the island you'd need to hire a car (can be done in Milna).
“Beautiful quiet place for short stay”
We stayed here in May 2015 and had a lovely time. The bedroom had stunning views of the fishing port and hills beyond and we really enjoyed the space. Maki the owner was very helpful even though he wasn't around when we stayed he made himself available and gave us advice about the area. It was quiet in May and we couldn't hire a boat, car or scooter. If you want to see the rest of the island I would recommend organising hire before leaving Supetar where the boat from Split gets in. There were plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk of the apartment where you can have good food, especially recommended is the Palma and the pizza place where we had excellent pizza. Highly recommended overall.
