Make a holiday home in Selca your home away from home

This tiny town on the Dalmatian island of Brac is where tourists hoping to explore the delights of the Dalmatian Coast can find excellent holiday accommodation in a tranquil environment. It is part of the Split-Dalmatia county and has a population of little more than 2,000. Holiday homes in Selca put visitors within easy reach of Brac’s numerous attractions which include immaculate beaches and a number of interesting monuments. Guests in these self-catering villas and apartments will be delighted to note how close they are to numerous eateries that serve scrumptious traditional Croatian delicacies. In addition, a number of the holiday homes offered by HomeAway are close to the beach, making sunbathing and beach promenades hassle-free. To keep visitors cool through the summer heat are air-conditioning and private swimming pools in a few of these lodgings.

Things to do

-Beaches: Most holidaymakers on the island of Brac are driven there by the magnificent Zlatni Rat Beach. This is a horn-shaped stretch of pebbly, golden coastline bordered by crystal clear waters. Come August this beach is filled with sun-seeking tourists from all over Europe so booking a holiday home in Selca at this time may not be the best idea. But those who don’t mind sharing the beach with hundreds of other tourists can bask in 30°C temperatures.

-Blaca Monastery: A trip to the nearby town of Bol is well worth the effort as visitors will get to see historical monastery of Blaca. To get there visitors will have to take a 45 minute hike and along the way they will be treated to scintillating scenery. The building itself is built right into the face of a rocky cliff and is quite a sight to behold.

-Hiking: Speaking of hiking, with a little more footwork tourists can find a wonderful vantage point from which to view the beautiful Zlatni Rat and the pine forest that it surrounds as well as the town of Bol. The trail starts from a shopping centre in Bol and winds its way through vineyards where hikers can stop to sample local wine. In two hours visitors will find themselves at the peak of this small ‘mountain’.

-Water sports: The waters off the island of Brac provide prime grounds for scuba diving. Scuba diving from Lucice Bay is a particularly exhilarating as divers will find underwater caves whose chambers are decorated with stalactites and stalagmites. Along with these geological features, visitors will find a wealth of marine life; corals, sponges etc. Residents of Selca holiday homes will find a number of diving clubs where they can get gear.

-Monuments: Those who want to see more historical sites can take a one-hour boat ride to Split where they’ll get to tour the Diocletian Palace. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a Roman construction which can be described as a city within a city. It dates back to the 7th century and contains a number of interesting temples dedicated to various gods.

Weather in Selca

Selca’s excellent Mediterranean weather is one of the key reasons tourists make their way to holiday homes there during the hot season. Most of them arrive between June and August to enjoy the warmth of temperatures that range from 26 to 30°C on average during this time of year. Those hoping to avoid summer crowds can book their Selca holiday rentals in May when temperatures average 22°C or in September when they are at 25°C though this month experiences quite a bit of rainfall, about 80mm on average.

Travel to Selca

Those able to charter private planes can make plans to land in the Bol Airport which is just about 8 miles from Selca. The more common means of arrival to Split-Dalmatia is through the Split airport, which as Croatia’s third largest Airport, handles traffic from all over Europe. A number of low-cost carriers have seasonal flights to this facility from Madrid, Moscow, Paris and other European cities. Visitors can travel from Split to Supetar by ferry from where they can get one of the buses that traverse Brac.

An hour boat trip to Villa Akuna's private pier was a perfect start of the holiday. We had high expectations before arrival, but Villa Akuna exceeded everything we could dream of! It is fantastic – and so is the view! Large, delicate bedrooms and bathrooms, tasteful spacious common rooms with gorgeous designer furniture. Very well equipped kitchen, with the best standard on all appliances. The trim room was also well equipped. Milka was the sweetest host and did everything to make us feel comfortable. She arranged everything we could possibly wish, all with a smile and efficiency. The whole family loved the homemade meals by their cook! The peace and beauty of Villa Akuna was the perfect place to enjoy relaxed luxury, recharge batteries and enjoy being with the family. We all loved it and will definitely be back!

It is newly completed with luxury kitchen and bathroom fittings and has a great pool and terrace. Aircon is a welcome benefit though the apartments were quite cool in the heat. On arrival, Vilma met us and showed us round and ensured that we were happy with everything. The villa was spotless and she'd even left us a lovely welcome pack of bread, meats and cheese as well as local pastries - a lovely touch. The villa comprises of 2 separate apartments and both are included in the let - one at ground level with a covered balcony - great for shade from the sun and ideal for al fresco dining. The upper flat has an open balcony making the most of the views. Both apartments have a bedroom with king size bed, and sofa beds in the lounge/ open plan kitchen. There is even in honesty wine fridge in the upper apartment! There are loads of towels for use and the bedding is changed once during the week which was very welcome. It was an ideal set up for us as our teenager had the upper apartment to himself, but equally the arrangement would suit 2 couples or families. The garden is totally enclosed with electric gates and the terrace has sun beds, parasols and a stone built barbecue which we made great use of. The pool was well used by us - it is a decent size and although filled with salt water, I think it is treated to try to reduce the salt levels - it certainly wasn't as salty as the sea! There is also an outside shower for pool use. The villa is outside the village and a car is recommended to get about the island generally. We really enjoyed our stay here and Vilma and her husband were very welcoming and were keen to ensure that we were happy in the villa and had all that we needed. If you are looking for a villa with stunning views, decent facilities and in a good location, then I can highly recommend staying here.
