Villa Podelina is located just outside of the town of Sumartin on the eastern coast of Brac. Most easily accessed from the mainland via a ferry to Makarska, Sumartin is a small town with a rich history and has now become a popular spot for tourists.
Sumartin was established in the 17th Century, and even today the Franciscan monastery still stands, where there is now a neighbouring museum where you can learn more about the history of the island. Sumartin is also home to a number of convenient amenities, including supermarkets, bars and restaurants, all serving a range of foods and cuisines to suit all taste buds.
The island of Brac has been a popular holiday spot for a number of years, offering an island oasis for those that make the journey here.The island is most commonly accessed from Split airport via a ferry to Supetar on the island's north coast. Supetar is Brac's largest town and offers a horseshoe-shaped beach and a great spot to stock up on supplies before heading to your villa. There are smaller towns and villages dotted around the island that are wonderful places to explore in the evenings as you head out for dinner.
Many of the beaches on Brac are pebbly or rocky, but there are a few sandy spots. Zlatni Rat, or Golden Horn as it is known, is a spit located on the southern coast of Brac near the town of Bol. The beach is largely pebble but is thought to be one of the best beaches in Croatia, and its unique shape makes it popular with tourists. Lovrecina is home to the only sandy beach on Brac and is located between Postira and Pusisca on the north coast of Brac. And nearby, there is an archaeological site of a 6th-century Christian basilica, so why not combine your beach day with a bit of history and culture!
