History of Villa Maruka
Villa Maruka has been in our family for more than 130 years. It was built in 19th century and first registered in 1881. Grand grandmother Maruka lived here with here family and run a shop at the back of the house. She had 7 children, 5 boys and 2 girls. In difficult times one of them had to leave and find work overseas at the age of 17, like many young Dalmatians. His family still lives in South Africa, but visits the old village regularly. After the second world war in communism times, all private shops were banned and Maruka's son, grandfather Stipe started to work in local cooperative shop. Other children left the village and after Maruka's death, Stipe and his family moved in a new house closer to the sea. The old stone house was empty for almost 50 years! In 1997 we bought it from other aunts and uncles and finally renovated it, this time into a modern luxury villa which welcomes guests from all over the world!
Olive grove routs: walking and biking trails
Brac island is famous for its olive oil! The olive growing on the island has long tradition, but with its historic ups and downs, it is now experiencing a new revival. In Mirca, the olive growing tradition never stopped and every family has its olive groves around the village. Through these areas lead Olive grove routs: trails and gravel roads ideal for mountain biking or walking and hiking! The routs start in the old center of the village close to Villa Maruka and lead up between old olive groves, woods and mediterranean karst, with fantastic views of the sea and mountains on the mainland all along the way.
Villa Maruka is situated on one of the most beautiful and easily accessible Croatian island Brac, in peaceful old center of village Mirca, 10 minutes by walk from the beach, 3km from the lively town of Supetar and only 1 hour by ferry from the biggest Dalmatian city of Split.

Nataša from Slovenia,
Absolutely wonderful – highly recommended
The village of Mirca is one of the most beautiful on the island - with a church, a little supermarket and traditional farmhouses, and about a 10 minute walk to a little beach/beach bar. The villa has a great view of the sea and over to the mainland.
Sanja, the owner of the property was absolutely lovely. She was very helpful with advice on places to eat (Konoba Kopacina had the most incredible lamb cooked over an open fire) and with things to do (she joined the hire car company rep when he brought our hire car to the villa to do the translating!) She was always on hand to help but gave us the space to enjoy our holiday.
Thank you Sonja for a fantastic holiday. We look forward to returning soon.

Delightful property, Relaxing holiday, Beautiful island
There is plenty to do -we did sea kayaking, hired a boat, visited the monastery at Pustinja Blaca (well worth the walk,but watch for pot holes and scratchy bushes on the drive down) and many of the beautiful little villages and ports. Also had a day in Split -the old town is amazing.
Sanja is a treasure. She is a mine of information and endlessly willing to help book restaurants, boats, or whatever you need.

Thanks Sanja for your warm hospitality!
