Croatia Airways, and other European air-carriers offer very favorable seasonal flights to both Bol and Split, since Split Airport is also close to Bol.
Jaksa was a very good host we got lost when we first arrived to Brac Island.I called Jaksa he said he is off Island but his relative will help us. Dragen was very helpful he meet us at designated point and showed us the famous beach zlatin rat, downtown Bol, than villa Franka where we were staying, which helped a lot . The next day Jaksa was back home and answered all my questions, he was very nice and made us feel very welcomed. Definitely would come back to stay at Villa Franka and would recommand very much for people to stay here. The place was nice and very clean and quiet, the neighborhood is nice and quiet also by car 5 min. drive to downtown Bol and 10 min. to the beautiful beach Zlatin Rat.
A great place to stay, situated at the periphery of Bol but still just 10-15min walking distance to the city center, with a nice view on the city and the golgen cape. Jakša is a friendly and helpful host, the apartment is cozy and the terrace in front of the apartment perfect for relaxing.
The apartment was exactly what we expected (and what we could see on photos). It was clean and had all the equipment we needed (including dishwasher). Jaksa was very nice and helpful. As soon as we told him we needed something, it was there (eg. small barbeque / grill). The place is very calm and quiet, what was perfect for as. At the same time its not a long distance form the centre of town or beaches (we used our bikes or walked). The town itself has a great atmosfere and a lot of nice reasaurants. We recommend Villa Franka as a great place to stay :-)
Wir waren 3 Tage in der Villa Franka und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist zwar etwas dunkel aber dafür gross und sehr sauber. Sie liegt sehr ruhig und abseits von der Strasse.
Jaksa ist ein sehr freundlicher Gastgeber der sehr gut Deutsch spricht und wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt bei ihm.
Ein Verbesserungsvorschlag wäre vielleicht dass einige kleinere Dinge in der Küche als Grundausstattung schon vorhanden wären (Salz, Zucker, Öl etc.)
Jaksa met us at the port smiling and immediately made us feel welcome. The apartment had everything we needed, it was lovely and clean and in a really peaceful location. There was a supermarket within a couple of minutes walk. We really enjoyed our experience at the apartment and on the island with our 2 children (age 10 and 12). We would love to return.
We had an early ferry to catch on the Sunday, Jaksa happily offered us a lift, which was very helpful.
Everything was as we expected.
We had the apartment in the basement, with so much space and a very large terrace where we had our breakfast every morning.
The apartment was clean, we had enough towels and linen and the kitchen was very well equipped with a huge refrigerator.
Jakša is such a friendly host. He did everything to make us feel comfortable, he even arranged a vegetarian dinner at a nearby restaurant for us. Thanx again for that :-)
He and his wife were open for every question we had and were always absolutely professional and helpful.
We had a wonderful time and will return! :-)
