We had a brilliant week staying in the cottage, there were 4 of us and the cottage was just right. The terrace was ideal and being able to just walk into the sea to swim and snorkel was fantastic. Ivan who met us was very informative and gave the lowdown of the house and area. We only ate lunch and breakfast on the terrace but there is a great looking bbq, restaurants, bars and shops were all within a very easy walk. Watching Croatia beat Argentina in the World Cup and the atmosphere was a bonus. Although we never met the owners we were impressed with the speed of their replies by email in the lead up to our holiday and felt we could always rely on them if needed.
In short, if you are looking for a relaxing stay in a cottage on Brac I don’t think you could better Illyria.
That’s brilliant Steve, thanks so much! So pleased you had a good time and that everything was as it should be. We’ve had many happy family holidays there and we always loved being able to jump into the sea, almost directly from the terrace. Postira also has the right balance between having enough to do and being sufficiently chilled and not too crowded.
Incredible spot with the sea outside the back door.
Illyria Cottage is a characterful haven. We had some stormy weather during our stay and it was exciting to have the waves breaking a few metres away from the dining table. When it was sunny and calm we had pre-breakfast swims in the incredibly clear water just outside the back door. Postira is a wonderful place to stay on the island as it's not quite as touristy as some of the other towns. It has amenities and lovely walks to breathtakingly beautiful swimming spots around the coast. Being out of season quite a few restaurants were shut but we enjoyed self-catering in the cottage.
I would suggest hiring a car as there's lots to explore on the island.
The cottage had everything we needed and worked well for two adults and two older children.
Thanks so much for your wonderful review. I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay at Illyria, particularly in late October when the weather is sometimes changeable but the scenery around you continues to captivate ... Regards. Steven
Unbelievable setting in a quiet town
Postira is a perfect town to avoid the crowds of tourists, and the Illyria house makes you feel right at home. The sea is right in your backyard, and restaurants, supermarkets, other beaches are within 5-10 minutes walk. The house is basic but has everything you need-- you'll find yourself on the back patio the majority of the time :) The owner and property manager were both extremely receptive. Thanks for a great stay!
Thanks so much for the kind review Katrina - I'm so glad you had a great time and that the sun shone on you at our house in Postira!! Regards. Steven
Fabulously located and characterful cottage
Our family of five had a wonderful 12 days in Illyria.
We adored hanging out on the sea terrace stirring only for the occasional dip or to do a spot of fishing off the rocks.
The cottage is simple but had everything we needed and plenty of space for five adults. Enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner on the terrace was the highlight of the holiday.
Postira is a lovely authentic village which, even in August, was blissfully quiet. There are a handful of lovely restaurants and more bars all serving excellent and inexpensive food and drink.
When we ventured further afield we discovered the beautiful and ancient village of Dol, the wonderfully picturesque Pucisca and the bustling and busy resort of Bol. All were worth a visit.
We rented a boat and a skipper from Postira and crossed to Omis with its magnificent gorge and ancient castle. After an excellent lunch at sea we took in some gorgeous deserted coves where we swam off the boat.
This is undoubtedly the best located cottage we've ever stayed in and we are feeling thoroughly relaxed and sun-kissed as we head back to English autumn.
Thanks to Ivan and Marina for the welcome and recommendations.
Thanks Lynda. I'm so glad you had a great time in Postira. We too are now afflicted by the UK autumn ... long may the Brac sun kiss and state of relaxation remain!!! Regards
Wonderful family holiday
A beautifully situated house with everything we could possibly want. Ivan and Marina were really helpful and the house was clean and well cared for. Swimming from the back terrace was wonderful with amazing snorkelling opportunities and welcome shade on the terrace in the afternoon.
Thanks so much Faye for your kind review and so glad you all enjoyed the snorkelling etc. Regards. Steven
We are a family of four ( two adults and two teenagers) who stayed at Illyria for 6 nights. If only it were longer! Illyria and the town of Postira combine to make quite simply the perfect getaway . The cottage has a unique setting being so close to the sea, with a stunning view over to the mainland. The vista was always different and always interesting - watching the daily activity on the water - and as a result we struggled to leave the terrace. The cottage itself was perfectly situated - a two minute walk to a well stocked small supermarket ( great bread at 7 am!) and a ten minute walk into Postira, a really pretty harbour town with a selection of restaurants, cafes, bars etc. We hired both bikes and a boat for the day from Postira and explored neighbouring areas. We bought beautiful meat from the butcher in town to barbecue and took a taxi to the restaurant in Dol for a traditional meal of Peka. Illyria has been renovated simply but beautifully , Steven and Thea as owners were always in the background should we need anything and the local property managers Ivan and Marina , warm, welcoming, friendly and informative. Without question we will return to Illyria and the beautiful town of Postira. Thank you to Steven and Thea for giving us the opportunity to stay at their beautiful fisheman's cottage. We would recommend it without hesitation !
Jo, what happened to you on the way to Postira? I suspect a call in at cafe Bracera for a glass of something but merely supposition on my part as I can do it in 5 mins sans a call in there. Still, time well spent if you did and thanks so much for this wonderful review - you were all truly amazing guests at both our properties and a real pleasure for us and you would be welcome back anytime the mood takes you!! All the best. Steven
Das Haus liegt in Postira, einem wunderschönen und unberührten Fischerdorf auf der Insel Brac. 5 Restaurants und mehrere Bars sind hier ansässig und erfreuen sich in den Sommermonaten großer Beliebtheit, ohne dabei viel Lärm zu verursachen. Frischen Fisch kann man morgens direkt von den Fischerbooten kaufen. Von Postira aus kann man auch den restlichen Teil von Brac und die anderen dalmatinischen Inseln sehr gut erkunden. Auf Brac gibt es sehr viele abgelegen Strände, unter anderem auch den traumhaften Sandstrand von Lovrecina, der nur 2 km von Illyria entfernt liegt.
In season we generally ask for a minimum stay of 7 days. Prices based on 6 people sharing. Each extra person above 6 people is charged at £50 per week. A security deposit of Euro300 is required by the landlord's agent on arrival and before occupation and is returned on departure. All bookings are confirmed by a deposit of 50% of the full amount due with the remainder paid 6 weeks before occupation. Croatia charges a nominal tourist tax for all tourists.
