Make a holiday home in Postira your home away from home

This is a town on the northern coast of the Dalmatian island of Brac. It is really a slow paced traditional village whose inhabitants are mainly fishermen and farmers. The laid back atmosphere makes Postira the perfect place for tourists to seek holiday accommodation as they enjoy the delights of Brac and other attractions on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. This area is known for its sublime beaches and the opportunities for scuba diving and other water sports. After a day of excitement and leisure, visitors can retreat to the luxurious holiday homes and apartments offered by HomeAway. Also on offer are spacious holiday villas, most of which are not far from the sea. These holiday rentals come with facilities that will make guests feel fully at home including WiFi Internet and barbecues.

Things to do

-Beaches: The horn shaped beach of Zlatni Rat is one of Brac’s key attractions and every summer this stretch of golden beach is flooded with visitors from far and wide eager to sunbathe. This beach is characterised by crystal clear waters and pebbles rather than sand. Not to worry, there are plenty of lounging chairs on which holidaymakers can lounge and soak up the rays. Beach mats can also be purchased from nearby shops. Postira itself boasts an excellent sandy beach called Lovrecina.

-Water sports: Parents can let their kids enjoy the waters of the Adriatic as they are calm most of the time. Visitors will want to go snorkelling as the waters are exceptionally clear. The winds in this locale are great for wind and kite surfing and holidaymakers who are novices can get lessons from surrounding schools. Snorkelling and scuba diving gear can be easily secured as well.

-Food and drink: Like the rest of Croatia the island of Brac has its share of great restaurants and ‘konoba’ where those staying in Postira holiday homes can dig into authentic Croat cuisine. At the Konoba Kopacina they can savour pork chops, roast lamb and other specialities prepared in the traditional way helped down with traditional wine.

-Olive oil: One of the key economic activities in this locale is the production of olive oil. There are said to be over half a million trees on the island of Brac sprouting a rare kind of olive called buhavica. Postira is also known for wine production.

-Monuments: A visit to the nearby town of Supetar is highly recommended for visitors putting up in Postira holiday homes as it has a couple of noteworthy attractions. The parish church of St. Peter or Sveti Petar is of medieval origins and showcases intriguing baroque patterns. Inside the building are 18th century paintings by a local artist.

Weather in Postira

Postira exhibits classic Mediterranean weather with warm temperatures for most of the year broken only by a mild winter. Temperatures rise above the 20°C mark as early as May and do not drop until November when winter begins. The majority of the occupants of Postira holiday homes arrive between June and August when temperatures range between 26 and 30°C. This is the height of summer and virtually no rainfall is seen during this time. In October however, rainfall averages of 80mm are usually recorded.

Travel to Postira

The closest airport to Postira is the Bol Airport which is on the island of Brac. This is a relatively small airport which receives mainly charter traffic from selected European cities. Most visitors to the Dalmatian coast however arrive through the Split Airport. Known locally as Resnik Airport, this facility is the country’s third largest. It is the gateway through which summer holidaymakers from London, Geneva, Munich and other European localities arrive into the Split-Dalmatia county. Split Airport is just about 20 miles from Postira and visitors will have to travel the distance by boat or ferry.

If only it were longer! Illyria and the town of Postira combine to make quite simply the perfect getaway . The cottage has a unique setting being so close to the sea, with a stunning view over to the mainland. The vista was always different and always interesting - watching the daily activity on the water - and as a result we struggled to leave the terrace. The cottage itself was perfectly situated - a two minute walk to a well stocked small supermarket ( great bread at 7 am!) and a ten minute walk into Postira, a really pretty harbour town with a selection of restaurants, cafes, bars etc. We hired both bikes and a boat for the day from Postira and explored neighbouring areas. We bought beautiful meat from the butcher in town to barbecue and took a taxi to the restaurant in Dol for a traditional meal of Peka. Illyria has been renovated simply but beautifully , Steven and Thea as owners were always in the background should we need anything and the local property managers Ivan and Marina , warm, welcoming, friendly and informative. Without question we will return to Illyria and the beautiful town of Postira. Thank you to Steven and Thea for giving us the opportunity to stay at their beautiful fisheman's cottage. We would recommend it without hesitation !

The booking process was very easy and Ivana who manages the property replied to all correspondence very quickly (also kindly booking us a great recommended restaurant for our first night). The house is well appointed, very well maintained and clean. It is in a lovely peaceful location with superb views. The house has all necessary facilities for a fantastic family holiday. The outside space is excellent, with a lovely BBQ area and also plenty of shady places under the olive trees for relaxing, reading and eating. The pool was a real highlight and the children (and adults) spent a lot of time in it! The village of Dol has three restaurants and we ate in all three and could highly recommend them. Postira is the local bigger town, which has a good variety of cafes / restaurants and beaches and it also has a decent supermarket. We spent a day at Skrip and this is not to be missed. The olive oil museum was great fun (definitely do the tasting for a few extra kunas!) and the Museum of Brac was fantastic. The lady on the desk at the museum spent ages giving us a tour and telling us all about the history. She was very knowledgeable and highly entertaining. In short, we can highly recommend Villa Dol and the Island of Brac to anyone.
