Ranch Visoska is a rustic, authentic Croatian experience. You feel worlds away from city life but you can stay connected if you need to with the WiFi. The villa has been hand built from local stone by a local family and you can feel their passion all around the extensive grounds. Water comes from collected rain and all the electricity is provided by solar panels so leave your hair straighteners at home. The outside BBQ area makes for amazing evening experiences and the owners will happily source fish or squid if you ask. Pool is amazing, a great place to cool off in the heat. We had a brilliant time here, an unforgettable family experience! But this place won't be for everyone, the lack of mains electricity means there's no air con which is difficult on warm nights when you are used to cooler climates. Sumartin isn't really within walking distance do a car is a must. Local beaches and the turquoise waters are stunning. We'll be back one day.
We had a lovely peaceful time. Juraj and his family were great hosts and we enjoyed to see all the craftsmanship and love of labor they put to their piece of paradise.
Many thought we were crazy to come to the island during the off season in winter but we loved having the island to ourselves dispite the cold weather. We really took in the experience of living on the island. The cottage is so charming as well as the local villages. We were the first guest ever in the winter and our only source of heat was the wood fireplace and the water never got hot enough for our showers. However our host Juraj I'm sure will have improved this based on our feedback. He as well is a great cook who made a special meal for us on the outdoor bbq. I would highly recommend for friends and family to come in summer and fall so you can really enjoy the island like a local and not have to deal with all the tourists that invade the island during the summer.
This was our first visit to the island of Brac and we were not disappointed. It is stunning! The property itself was so unique- the summer kitchen and poolside bar were great additions and the views out to the sea were amazing. The fact that there is no air conditioning was difficult on the night times and as it was the height of summer we had huge problems with wasps but overall these did not affect our stay too much. Such a unique experience and we will definitely be recommending it to others.
We - 5 persons and 2 dogs- spent 2 weeks in this absolutely fantastic stone houses with stunning view to the mainland and Hvar/Korkula.Juraj , the owner´s son is a great host and always helps with fresh fish for the outdoor barbecue, boat rental contacts or other wishes.
You will have the whole area for yourself , absolutely quiet without any disturbancies.
You can walk down to the sea, jogging through the hills with Franz , Jurajs dog, on unpaved roads, visit Sumartin-5 min. by car and ferry to Makaskar - great daytrip- . If you need air condition complexes you might be wrong.Expect small bed- and bathroom - but I think you are not coming for sleeping or taking a shower inside, because on the pool you also have an outdoor one.
You have to see it to understand that all of us wished to stay the whole summer.
The pictures are good but in real life IT IS UNBELIEVABLE GREAT !!!
We wish family Boscovic a full house all month.
Take care of Franz , please...
