There are also lavender, rosemary and sage as the spices for meat which you can prepare on the grill on the covered terrace with wooden furniture. Next to it is a playground with table tennis.
The house is also dominated by the antique wooden furniture that will, in contrast to the stone, give you warm family atmosphere. The colors scattered throughout the kitchen and bathrooms will cheer you up and help instill optimism.

A cozy and wonderful stay in Villa Vicina. The house was just amazing – clean, well equipped and very beautifully designed. It was a pleasure to stay in Milna. Since the village is small, we mostly traveled all around Brac, but it was always nice in evenings to come back to Villa Vicina, which we could call home for these few days.
We would definitely recommend this house. A fantastic holiday, peace and privacy guaranteed!
Fantastic vacation at villa vicina. Amazing house. Great location. Private courtyard. Great facilities. Comfortable. Ivan was our host and was gracious, kind and responsive. We hired him and his boat for a day and we loved it. He showed us some islands, took us to a great little restaurant, we went snorkeling, and he collected shells for our kids. Connie, the turtle, was a big hit with our kids as well. On the days we didn't want to travel, we stayed by the pool side and enjoyed the tranquility of the villa.
Villa Vicina is a lovely house set in its own delightful garden complete with swimming pool. The house is spacious, clean, comfortable, very well equipped and well-maintained. A gardener comes in every day; bedding is changed weekly; and any problems are resolved in a matter of minutes because help is always nearby. There is even a pet tortoise in the garden.
Milna is a lovely fishing/yachting village town with a good selection of cafes/restaurants/bars. It has a nice town beach (20 mins from the property) with excellent swimming. Be warned: like most Croatian beaches it is quite rocky but a pair of flip-flops will get you into the water easily enough.
Getting on and off the island with a car on a Saturday is not easy though. We had to wait three hours for the ferry from Makarska to Sumartin (on Brac) and queued for five hours at Supetar (Brac) before crossing to the mainland at Split. There isn't a reservation system so you just have to turn up and wait which is not the best way to finish a glorious holiday. I feel surely this could be better organised.
Would I recommend the house? Definitely.
This was our first visit to Croatia and we were not disappointed. We loved Milna and Villa Vicina more than exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect; the villa spotlessly clean and well equipped and Marina the housekeeper extremely helpful and obliging. Although the villa is in a village, it felt peaceful and apart from the nearby church, which does chime throughout the night, there was nothing to disturb the tranquility. Milna is a small fishing village with yacht flotillas occasionally visiting which gave a happy 'buzz' to the port.
We would definitely recommend Villa Vicina and only wish our stay had been longer than 7 days!
