Book a luxury suite accommodation in Supetar, on the island of Brač

hotel-bracka-perla-supetarHotel accommodation Bračka Perla in Supetar, on the island of Brač, offers:

  • 6 fascinating suites and
  • 5 rooms that are outfitted with specificity and comfort

Their interiors inspired artist Srećko Žitnik to create a story – story about authentic flora of the Mediterranean as it once was.

Each of the luxuriously equipped suites features kitchen, where you can have fun preparing Mediterranean specialties by following recipes in old Dalmatian cookbooks.

Living room, that features satellite TV, wireless internet and telephone, is reserved for those moments when you want to hear the news from the outer world.

There are, of course, bedroom and bathroom for the moments of rest and refreshment.
The most beautiful sight are certainly hotel terraces, where, we believe, you will spend unforgettable moments of your vacation observing garden sculptures, lightened by the colours of the Mediterranean's most beautiful sunset.

Besides luxury suite accommodation, we offer accommodation in superior guestrooms, which also open their island soul to everybody who wants to find a moment of relaxation between their walls.

Artist Srećko Žitnik graduated from the art school in the class of Professor Ivan Krstulović, and he presented his painting skills at the exhibitions in his country, but also throughout the World, from India, Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany all the way to the faraway America.

When the Croats arrived to the island Brač, they found a well-rooted olive cultivation and olive oil production. However, they were more bound to the grapevine, goats and sheep, because they didn’t know olive in their country of origin. As the laws of the Republic of Venice regulated the planting of olive trees (they even regulated penalties for those who damage the olive tree, and a condition for marrying a lad was to plant 100 olive trees), between 16th and 19th century Brač became an olive superpower. This led to a number of around three million (which was the count of olive trees on Brač in the mid 19th century), so olive nowadays represents an indispensable symbol of the island.

Olive groves on the island Brač are still cultivated in a traditional way, which is passed down from generation to generation. The most common cultivars are the old varieties, which are used to produce olive oil, and the cultivars used as table olives can be found in a very small number. Traditional olive trees can be identified by a high treetop with poor foliage. On island Brač, olives are harvested between mid-October and mid-December, when all inhabitants go to harvest. The fruit is processed the same day, or a day/two after the harvest.

Olive oil made in Brač is not just a food and spice in the kitchen: it is a medicament and also a cosmetic preparation. It is distinctive because of its specific, fruity aroma of moderate bitterness, pleasant fragrance and healthy green fruits, and because of its properties, it is valued as extra quality or virgin olive oil.

Unlike wine, which improves with age, olive oil deteriorates and loses its quality by ageing, so this oil is best to use up to one year after production.
