WHAT ARE THIRDHOME MEMBERS SAYING ABOUT THEIR LUXURY HOME EXCHANGE TRIPS (TO Croatia AND Colorado) THIS WEEK?

Croatia

Villa Akuna by the Sea | Croatia

Gaze out over the impossibly blue Adriatic Sea from Villa Akuna, a luxury property on the island of Brac, Croatia. Contemporary interior design, the open concept layout and spacious living areas make Villa Akuna feel like a work of art that doesn’t compromise on comfort. With room for up to 10 people, this home runs the gambit in home entertainment options. Swim in the pool, watch a film in the media room, relax in the infrared sauna, get an in-home massage or relax in the Jacuzzi overlooking the sea. When you’re not relaxing at Villa Akuna, the island of Brac has plenty to offer to foodies and sommeliers.

Best Job On The Planet winner, Sorelle Amore, just recently explored Brac, Croatia. Let her give you a tour of the island.

THIRDHOME member Anoushka says, “This is truly a wow factor home. It is jaw dropping from the moment you step inside. The wonderful views, beautiful high spec design details, location, amenities, a wonderful housekeeper… the list is endless…It is a piece of heaven; unspoiled, far from the madding crowds, private and a wonderful place to holiday as a family or group of friends.” click here to read more of Anoushka’s review

A holiday in Brac, Croatia is one where you will walk away tanned, culturally and historically educated, happier and healthier…well, to a degree.

The fresh food, beaches, adventures will get you feeling fine, whilst the excess wine consumption (which is perfectly acceptable when on holidays) will contradict the healthy getaway just a little.

But you can’t be mad about that.

Pair the great food, wine, endless activities and architecture of the island with staying in a beautiful beachfront THIRDHOME property named Villa Tiha, and you have just created the recipe for the perfect getaway. Or choose from two other THIRDHOME waterfront mansions (Villa Akuna and Villa Rosemarine) just down the road.

There is much to indulge in on the island of Brac.

Olive and wine tasting anyone?

Driving up to the most beautiful lookout atop the mountain for breathtaking sunset views?

Or, take part in every type of water sport your mind can think of?

You can’t forget this one: Spend the day on a boat soaking up the sun and exploring near by islands and towns. Not on your list? Add it.

Croatia from the sea is a sight that cannot be missed. It will leave you mesmerized.

You’ll never have a dull moment in Brac, Croatia.

Of course the food selection is endless here and you’ll be happily enjoying your meals on the shoreline of some of the most architecturally perfect and history-rich towns.

When back in your villa, add to your relaxation and wellness by having a massage in your room, or stretching yourself out during a sunset yoga session seaside.

Follow that up by enjoying a a home cooked meal on the outdoor veranda, consisting of fresh seafood or mouthwatering meat cooked on the outdoor fire grill.

The history of Croatia is one to get to know. I particularly loved learning about the importance of limestone on this island, which is some of the best in the world. 
Parts of the Vatican and The White House were built from the limestone made on this island. You can go to the limestone handling school to see the future masters at work.

Every step you take in Croatia feels as though you’re in a movie. All the houses throughout the towns and cities are all very similar, with buildings made of limestone and terracotta roofs.

This is pure bliss for the eyes and the photographic opportunities are second to none. The beauty will surely overwhelm you.

Croatia is perfectly suited for foodies, wine lovers, water lovers and sun seekers. If that sounds like you, add Croatia to your itinerary.

Villa Tiha

Brac in Croatia is know for its olives, wine and great restaurants with incredibly fresh seafood. It is also known for unbelievable old architecture, interesting world history and a variety of water sports.

A holiday in Brac, Croatia is one where you will walk away tanned, healthier to a degree (because of all the fresh, locally grown food you’d be consuming – but not so much the excess wine which is totally acceptable as you’re on a holiday), culturally educated and happier.

Much happier.

Pair that with staying at Villa Tiha, and you have just created the recipe for a perfect getaway. Villa Tiha is a THIRDHOME property that is situated on a beautiful beachfront property, with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

My favorite part of the property was the isolation, location and the beachfront access.

The home is the very last home in the bay and it’s surrounded by thick vegetation meaning you’re truly in an isolated haven.

The beach access means that your morning pick up for exploration of Brac and the surrounding islands isn’t from the road but from the sea, by riding a boat.

And what a way to explore! The stunning local towns look beautiful as you drift by on a boat, on the most enchanting blue water with the kindest skipper named Simon.

Villa Tiha had the most wonderful property manager that has 17 years experience. She often hosts repeat groups of guests that celebrate large important moments in life, such as their 40th birthday celebration and then again their 50th.

You know the area and the people looking after you are great if people are coming back for life moments like this.

Croatia is very family oriented, so Milka, the property manager also has her mother cook for us one night. She cooked delicious traditional Croatian food – plates filled with seafood, grilled vegetables, and apple strudel for desert.

The outdoor dinner with my brother under the bright star-lit sky, the beautiful blue pool illuminated at night, the villa lights all around and the sound of the sea made for a special memory.

Perhaps having my boyfriend there it would be a romantic night but my brother and I had a good laugh about the romantic settings and shared some great memories from our trip to Croatia together.

Villa Tiha is a 3-story modern home. The interior is almost all white which adds more holiday vibes.

There is a large kitchen, multiple dining areas and hidden relaxation zones inside and out of the home, including a fireplace, a limestone outdoor grill, a jacuzzi and a beautiful pool, which is a show-stopping pop of color beside the home.

A great discovery for me was knowing this property was within short walking distance to two other THIRDHOME properties, named Villa Akuna and Villa Rosemarine. I immediately thought of all the possibilities for a fun group trip in this area.
