If you’re after a tranquil hideaway with style, you’ve found it in the Gava Waterman Island Cottages. This place is surrounded by lush pine forests on the west side of Brac Island, and overlooks the Adriatic Sea. You’ll feel miles from anywhere here, but it’s less than a 10-minute walk to Lucica Beach, and not too much further to the pretty village of Milna, where there’s a good supply of cosy bars and restaurants. The hotel puts on a free shuttle bus to the latter.
There are two pools outside – one’s an infinity number offering spectacular views. If you fancy swapping pool for sea, you don’t have to walk to the beach, either. Just downhill of the hotel you’ll find a couple of purpose-built decks with direct access to the waves. Little ones will love the inflatable water playground here, too. Head indoors, meanwhile, and you’ve got another pool in the spa, neighboured by treatment cabins.
