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.

The villa has been sympathetically restored and retains a rustic Croatian feel with beautiful local stonework. Right on the water’s edge, it’s set on three levels with stunning views from each and an array of spaces to socialise in or retreat to. The pine trees add to the peaceful atmosphere. Bedrooms were tastefully furnished with the luxury of en-suites and the beds were more comfortable than home! The contemporary kitchen had been recently refurbished and well kitted out for any cooking you had in mind. The villa manager, Milka, was a fountain of knowledge about the island, with great restaurant recommendations and the option of have having meals catered for and exploring the islands by boat (skippered by Milka’s husband, Simon) took luxury to another level. Kayaking on the stunning blue water was a highlight and so convenient to be able to launch from your own jetty. The hardest part of this memorable experience was leaving. Can’t recommend highly enough - definitely one for sharing with friends and family and we look forward to coming back.

It was a truly memorable experience both the house and its location surpassed our expectations. Beautiful blue skies, sparkling clear water and a strikingly modern residence whilst retaining the essence of Croatian living really made it a special holiday. The house has an amazing attention to detail more like a 5 star hotel than someone’s private home. We felt special the moment we arrived and nothing disappointed us, beautiful fresh food, and local wine and the opportunity to island hop to some of Crotia’s most hip venues. We are looking forward to a return as a week is never enough to fully appreciate this very special experience.
