A favorable location has transformed Postira in a harbor and a fishing place, while the fertile land in the hinterland ensures homemade food and quality wines.

Split is one of the best known and most visited tourist destinations on the Adriatic and the second largest city in the country.  It is an eternally young city which lives with a slow pace that is very easy to get accustomed to. This city is rich in historical monuments of which we recommend the following: Diocletian’s palace (the heart of the city), the Iron Gate, the statue of bishop Gregory of Nin, the cathedral of St. Duje, church of St. Francis, cathedral of St. Peter, the main court, city basement, St. Anne’s monastery and many others.

Hvar is an ancient city with a rich history and the greatest number of sunny days. It faces the sunny South side of the world on the island of the same name. Its name comes from the Greek name for Hvar, “Pharos.” In the city you can view various historical monuments of which we recommend the Fortica fortress, the Hvar cathedral, city theatre and the Franciscan monastery.

      Prachtig groen eiland met mooie baaien voor wie goed ter been is. Heerlijke temperatuur, 25-28 graden met soms een bui. De oostkant van het eiland is minder druk en toeristisch dan de westkant. Het is overal even mooi met vriendelijke mensen en mooie oude kerkjes. Lekker eenvoudig eten voor een vriendelijke prijs.
      Wij hebben genoten van het eiland en denken er graag aan terug.

      Small and perfectly formed
      Postira was one of many beautiful little coastal villages on Brac, but for us it was the best. Small, quiet, family-friendly, not a great deal of night life other than superb bars and restaurants, it offered us a really relaxing holiday in a beautiful environment. I loved the winding streets leading into the small town centre, there are plenty of old, traditional Croatian houses to admire on the way. Between the houses you just catch a glimpse of the blue, blue sea and the rocks which provide the perfect bathing, diving and sunning platforms. It doesn''t get much better than this.
